    I have similar problem. I change the CIS ink system on my R2400 and 5 ink lights are blinking. Even after pressing the ink button to change the cartridges, the hear goes back but no change in the ink light. Does it need to be reset as well?

Top light blinking. Getting paper jam error message repeatedly. Cleaned the pad. did a nozzle check, replaced THREE cartridges. Did not give my blood type yet. How to fix? The waste pad is not...


This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

Epson R2400 paper and ink lights blinking red. Ink waste pad replaced and counter reset to 0. Lights still blinking red. Close inspection for any loose objects in printer but none found. Please advise....


Try to turn on your printer without the ink cartridges. When the printer starts and ask for the cartridges, put them back in.

(To remove the cartridges turn on the printer, watch the print head carriage move, when it is at the center quickly unplug the power cable, move the carriage by hand to a position where you can remove the cartridges, after removing the cartridges push the carriage to the right where it should be parked.)

The ink and paper jam lights are flashing alternately on my 2400 and the print head will not move when the printer is switched on, any idea?


You have to reset waste ink counter. Use SSC Utility or adjusment program for printer type. Try to find at indoreset.blogspot.com. Or contact me if you don't find out there.

How to change waste pads on Epson R2400?


The R2400 is quite an expensive printer and changing the pads would likely knock the printhead out of gross alignment so if you really must change the pads then I'd recommend getting it done at a service center (much as it pains me to suggest it).

The only time it's really essential to get the pads changed though is if you do a lot of borderless printing as this dumps ink straight to the pads and bypasses the popular external waste ink tank modification.

My recommendation would be to consider getting the printer serviced this once and then immediately install an external waste ink system to your printer and use the SSC or A10-IPR utility from Epson to reset the waste ink counter from there on in.

All the info you need is available via this link

Hope that helps, even if it is a little late..

It sounds like your printer has reached what is often called the "service required" stage...

To solve this you need to handle two things.

1. Get the printer protection counter (or waste-ink as it's sometimes called) reset.

2. Replace the waste ink pads OR redirect your waste ink flow to an external tank

It's important to note that Epson will encourage you to do a waste pad replacement through one of their service centers, but if you're out of warranty this will cost a significant amount of money (approx: $100 - 200)


To solve these as a DIY you can do the following:

1. Resetting the counter...
Get a resetter, either the SSC utility (google: epson SSC utility) or the IPR utility that Epson have now made available via their website here

The latter is only available to North American printer owners so the SSC is a safer bet.


2. Redirecting waste ink to an external container.
This is something I'd heartily recommend instead of trying to change the waste pads yourself... It's simple enough to do and a little googling using keywords "Epson R2400 waste ink tank" should get you all the info you need.

There are simple kits available that offer everything you need or you can easily go for a DIY with bits you have to hand.


Hope that helps...

Epson r 2400 top trashcan light and ink light flashing


For Jane106:
The ink-out and paper lights flashing alternately indicates the "service required" or basically ... "change my ruddy diaper, it's full of ink".

This is not as bad as it sounds and you have a few options:

1. Take it to a service center and have it serviced (ie: have the waste pads replaced)... It's expensive though so be warned.

2. Download the SSC utility (Google: SSC epson reset) and use this to reset the protection counter in the printer memory.
Note: READ the manual, it's not overly intuitive.

If you've gone with 2. you'll still need to do something about your waste ink and the simplest is really to modify your printer to redirect waste ink from the cleaning pump to an external tank.

Again Google is your friend so keywords like "Epson waste ink R2400" will find what you need. Some kits are better than others but then I'm biased :)

Hope that helps.
