Hi my R1800 has 2 flashing red lights (top) and no power light. What can i do? MAria


Hi.
It could be your ink tray has overflowed.
There is software http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml which might help.

Install this program, set your printer model and the driver (Epson Stylus Photo R1800) when it starts up. Close the program, and it will minimize to the
tray on the taskbar - right click on the icon and goto "Protection Counter". Choose
"Reset Protection Counter". Choose "Yes" to the question about the waste ink pads,
then switch the printer off for 1 minute. This should cure the problem.


It might be worth a try

Did you ever find a solution. I was away for a month and just tried to use my epson photo R1800 and the same thing happened to me....flashing lights and a "service required" note. Before I left it worked fine.

Which mac are you using the intel based or intel core 2 duo or powerpc macs? you can check that when you click on the apple icon and then about this mac. did you download the updated driver on Epson's website? pls respond right away so that i can help you on this. Chances are the driver didnt load properly, mac computer is using the generic or resident drivers installed on your computer, that is a guten print driver. Thanks and sorry it took me awhile to respond.

Problem using sublimation inks


Since you are using sublmation ink, the cartridges are probably aftermarket and may not meet Epson standards. Aftermarket chipped cartridges are notorious for failing to 'communicate' with Epson printers, even when the cartridge is brand new. Before taking the printer to a service center, you might try purchasing new cartridges of your ink from your reseller. If that fixes the problem then your fight is with the ink reseller, not Epson. If it doesn't fix the problem and your printer is still under warranty, take it to an authorized service center, and remember, using non-Epson ink does NOT void the waranty.
