Red light near tear icon is indicating no ink, when you press ink button carriage should move to center of printer, if you open lid and look where it stops there is a arrow pointing to which ink need replacing, replace ink indicated with gen epson cart.

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.

What is the icon's mean on the dash board, when climbing on a hill there's a red light on, but going down it turns off. it looks like there's is over heating or something, please help max'd 07

It depends on what warning light is on!
In any case, from your description and experience, it would be your engine 'Oil' warning light: it comes on when there is not enough lubrication (thus the overheating) flowing because of low oil pressure: immediately check your oil leveland top up as required) and make sure that change your oil and oil filter as soon as possible as it is a very damaging condition and the engine could seize.
Hope it helps: let me know hoe you go.

An icon came up and i dont know what it means

That is your coolant light. When the coolant is cold (car is cold) it is blue for a moment then goes out.
When the coolant is too hot, it is red.
When it flashes, you are low on coolant. Check the coolant tank level (it is the big ball shaped reservoir) and make sure you are within the operating level (about half way up, there are marks indicating proper level)

I am trying to refill my ink cartridge and i dont know how. HELP!!!

When your ink starts getting low, you will see a red light flashing on the printer. There is a tear drop shape next to the indicator light on the top of the printer. You can keep printing until the light stays red. Once the light stays red, they will need to be changed. When you need more ink, Epson will have a window pop up on your computer wanting you to purchase ink from them. You do not need to do this. We bought our ink cartridges at Best Buy. This printer uses DuraBrite Ultra Ink. There are 2 types; 69 or 88. They recommend 69 for heavy use and 88 for moderate use. The 88 has about half the ink the 69 does. We buy the 69 because it lasts much longer. We use this printer about 3 times a week on average and we haven’t had to change the ink for about 6 months. The 69 black ink at Best Buy is less than $20.00 and the color ink is about $14 for each of the 3 colors. The color 88 comes with all 3 in a pack and it’s about $30.00.

You should not remove any old cartridges until you are ready to replace them because if there isn’t any in there it can dry out the nozzles. You open the scanner and press the stop button and the printer head moves to the correct position. Open the cover and squeeze the tabs that are there and remove the old ones. Then as mentioned in the set up, insert each one in the correct color and press until they click. This printer was actually the easiest that I have ever had when it came to changing the ink. Another thing that you should know is that you cannot refill the cartridges. They have to be new.

Setting top of form for zebra 2844

Hold down the green button, then power on. As soon as the light turns red, release the button. The printer will go into calibration mode. When complete, press the green button one more time.

MY Epson Stylus C60 wont print

This means that your printer is trying to print from the wrong serial port connection, as your printer should be connected via a USB cable. Go to start>control panel>printers and faxes. Double click the printer and faxes icon and your Epson printer icon should be there and set as default with a tick next to it; right click on the icon>properties and then at the top of the next window, click on the tab that says ports and a list of ports will be there and the one that should be ticked should be USB001, and not LPT1 as it will be show, press ok and close windows and restart the pc.
