Question about Epson Stylus 880 InkJet Color Printer
Hi, my printer has been working fine, I had it turned off for overnight and in the morning upon turning it on, all lights flash. This is not a troubleshooting problem with solutions in the epson online manual. Other than buying a new printer (which I will probably do anyway), is there any easy solution or test to see if this one is salvagable? Thank you! Linda
Timsmilefam found a tech forum that solved this by jflan/mentor - give credit where deserved - THANKS! IT WORKED!!
his may be a call for your waste ink pad to be serviced.
Every time your printer goes into a cleaning cycle ink is pulled through the head and stored in this waste ink pad.
There is a procedure for this but it is more involved than the average owner will want to get.
A way to temporarily silence the flashing until the printer can be serviced may be :
"Turn the printer on while holding down both the ink and paper buttons. When the paper light flashes release both buttons, then press and hold down the ink button for 10 seconds. This allegedly resets the printer to "new" condition."
