    My Epson R220 was accidently knocked against my book case and now the paper and the ink lights flash continually. I have tried switching off and on, re booting the computer and reinstalling the printer software without luck …. Any ideas?

    I had a paper jam, and removed the sheet gently. I tried to send the print again, but the paper would not feed; I pressed the paper feed button. The ink head crossed along and back and then jammed on the right side, with a lot of jarring noise. I have tried disconnecting the printer and checking all the parts I can get at without taking it apart; but with the same result. Any ideas that don't cost a lot?

    Both red lights are flashing and I get a message saying that the printer parts are at the end of their life.

    For some time now, every time I printed a document, I got a message saying "parts inside the printer are nearing their expected life expectancy, etc.

    I downloaded the SSC Service Utility and followed the instructions for resetting the ink overflow. Nothing seemed to work as the two flashing red led's still flashed.

    Then, I unplugged everything, power & usb cable & plugged it all back in.

    Now, the two flashing led's are not flashing, but one led, the one to the left is on solid. It looks like there is an ink drop symbol on the lid. The green ready light is on, which it wasn't before.

    There was nothing about the one solid red led that I could find. Also, there is nothing about where & how to clean the waste ink pads.

    I use a bulk ink system on this printer.

    When I tried to print something, a message came up and said the printer did not recognize any of the ink cartridges. Now what do I do? This is getting very frustrating.

    One last thing. One of the links takes me to an ebay site to where overflow ink tanks are available for sale. Is this a great advantage of the overflow pads? Do I really need this? Can the pads be reliably cleaned?

    Any help you can provide is much appreciated.

Direct Code Entry
  1. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
  2. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
  3. Enter the 4 digit code from the code tables. Note: after a valid code entry, the red indicator turns off. For an invalid code, the red indicator flashes.
  4. With your device on, press CHANNEL UP. If the device responds, no further programming is required. Note: If some buttons do not operate your device, try one of the other codes for your brand.

When the power is turned on, the red indicator light flashes continually. It will not go to solid red. There was a clicking noise from the back of the set, which stopped shortly afterwards. I have pressed...

Two possibilities Your main power switch on TV is not functioning. The contact is lost. The safety switch is blown off.
