Will not switch on and both red lights keep flashing

This problem seem to start when I printed off the internet. When I clicked on print a print preview (which seemed to be from an old program) kept popping up and then both the red warning lights keep coming on athough I have plenty of ink and paper in the machine and I cannot switch the printer on.
It is almost as though Microsoft have overridden my drivers or something with a different program

    "The print head has failed to move to the ink cartridge replacement position"

    How can I get the cartridge to move from the extreme right (where it is locked) to the refill position?



    Help please, thanks

There was a power outage, and the red light on the printer keeps flashing but it won't print


Click on start and type services.msc and hit enter. Then scroll down till you see print spooler, right click it and say stop, count to 5 and right click it again and say run.
If this doesn't fix it try turning the power off on the printer and unplugging it and waiting 30 seconds then reverse the steps, plug back in and turn it back on.

I hope this will help you :)
* Green Power light flashes- The printer is receiving a print job, replacing an ink cartridge, charging ink, or cleaning the print head.
* RED paper light is On- If the CD/DVD try guide is open, close the CD/DVD tray guide, load paper, then press the paper button. Your paper ran out or multiple sheets loaded at the same time . Load paper and press the paper butoon to resume printing.
* RED paper light flashes- Paper is jammed in the printer. Press the paper button to eject the jammed paper. If the light is still flashing , open the cover and remove all paper, including any jammed or torn pieces. Then reload paper and press the paper button to continue printing.
* RED Ink Light Flashes - One or more cartridges are low on ink. Check the message that appears on your screen to determine which cartridge is low, or follow the instructions in " Checking the Ink Supply". Make sure you have a replacement cartridge.
* RED Ink Light is ON- One or more cartridges are out of ink or not installed. If you have just installed a new cartridge, it may be incomaptible with the printer or incorrectly installed. Reinstall it or replace it with the correct cartridge
* RED Ink and RED paper lights flash alternately- The CD/DVD tray guide was left open when you turned on the printer or when printing on paper. Just simply close it/
* Green Power Light is Off; RED paperand RED Ink Lights flashing- Paper may be blocking movement of the print head. Turn off the printer, then open the cover and remove any jammed paper or other foreign objects. Turn the printer back on again. Or it may have an internal error.

My printer does not want to print. it has a flashing red light on one of the three buttons underneath the on/off button. it is flashing red underneath the little tear drop sign (that's the best way i can...


If the red light keeps flashing and you can print, then it means your color cartridge has no more ink in it. Please replace it. If this is not the case, switch off the printer for few minutes (10mins), unplug the power cord and reinstall all the cartridges.

If you need further help, let me know.


Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My Epson is printing pages in code and will not stop and the green light is blinking and the red is staying on. We put in new ink cartridges today.


zark4, The green light flashing means you have print jobs waiting to be printed. Don't Turn Off The Printer When The Green Light Is Flashing ! If you have paper in the printer, the red light means you have an empty ink cartridge. Because both things are happening at the same time, here's what you need to do. First click start. Click printers and faxes. Double left click the Epson C-60 Icon. Left click Printer and click Cancel all documents and click yes, then exit. Remove and reinsert your new ink cartridges to make sure they are seated correctly. After you have done this and the printer finishes the automatic charging of the ink cartridges, the lights should be back to normal. Green light on.

Not printing


reboot the computer and the printer..
also try to do a "Print Test Page" by going to Start>Control Panel>Printers and Faxes , just right click on the printer icon(with a check mark on it) and select properties then click on Print Test Page"... if it still does not print, turn off the computer again, unplug the printer from the back of the computer ( I assume it's connected via USB), then plug the printer on a different usb slot on the computer.. you may have to re-install the drivers. make sure you have the cd for the printer.

I went through the HP troubleshooting and it started printing OK when I Stopped and Started the Print Spooling under Administration Services:

-START
-Control Panel
-Administrative Tools
-Services
-Scroll Down & Right Click on Print Spooler, Choose STOP, then OK (if needed)
-Right Click again, choose START, then OK (If needed)

After a few moments, it started right up for me and the Test Page I had in the que.

Hope this helps someone.
