Question about Epson Stylus Color 660 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I have an Epson Color Stylus 660 for about maybe 8 yrs. and it has always worked fine. So yesterday, when I turned it on, the three red lights on the left were flashing as well as the green on on the right. It has plenty of ink and paper, so help me please. It is unusable right now.

Sounds as if it was hit by a power surge or lighting. reboot it from the wall and try it again . if thats doesnt work it s a boat anchor for fishing.

Epson Stylus color 660 - all lights (red and green) are flashing. The printer is not responding to any command or button pressing other than switching on or off. There no visible obstructions in the paper...


Q: Why are all the lights on the printer flashing? A: When all the lights flash, your printer may have an internal error. Verify that all packing material has been removed. Instructions for removing the packing material will be found on a notice in the box. If the printer has not made any noises for more than five minutes, turn off the printer. Open the cover and check for any obstructions. Power on the printer to see if the error still occurs. If the unit still gives an error, please contact the Epson Connection for further assistance.

Tip

Manual Counter Reset Method


To manually reset the Ink Jet Counter that compels you to clean your waste pads. For the tip on how to clean your ink waste pads go here.

Please Note: In some cases, your printer may be leaking ink so much and so often that not only does your ink pads need cleaning, but you may need to replace the ink reservoir on your printer or you will have a leaking mess on your hands. This is a decision and judgment only you can make. If your printer is leaking quite of lot of ink, you may have to take it to an authorized Epson Repair Shop or Person. Find an authorized location by starting at Epson.com

The solution below is valid for most of the following printer models listed below this solution, some listed may not work, some not listed may also work it varies as this method is listed below is illegal for an authorized Epson Tech to release.

Thanks to the many user boards on the Internet for this solution that I know has worked for people I've helped here on FixYa.

Don't be discouraged if it doesn't work the first time. The key is in pressing the buttons exactly at the same time. So if this doesn't work the first time, try again and try again. Most people state they get it eventually.

[thanks to fixyourownprinter.com for the crux of this particular solution]

"Printer Onboard Control Panel Key Sequence"

"Press and hold the paper feed, paper switch and the power switch.

Once the power light and paper light flashes twice and the other lights are flashing release the paper feed and paper switch "and then press the paper feed switch".

The power, paper and ink lights will flash twice. At this point the protection counter has been reset."

Don't give up, if it does not reset the first time. The timing is tricky for some people.

Supported Epson Models that I am aware of, others not listed may work and some listed also may not work, it varies but don't be discouraged to try and try again.

You can also try the software download solution listed in this tip I posted.

Time to go shopping. All the light flashing like that is a trouble code. can:
  • take it in to get looked at (They will try to sell you a new one after charging you to look at it)
  • Buy a new print (they are pretty cheep)
* years is a good run, I hope you are that lucky with you next one.

Epson Stylus Color 660. Not working


You could try on old Epson trick which may work and re-sync the timing system.
With the printer turned off, but still plugged into the mains, move the head unit manually back and forth three or four times. You will need to release the head stop first ... (underneath the printhead at the left side a simple lever affair - use a small flat blade screwdriver ... gently). When you've done this, and returned the printhead back to its normal starting position, moving the little stop lever in place, turn on the printer and test it out. With a bit of luck this will do the trick.

Red ink


Have you missed removing a piece of tape that covers a vent hole somewhere? This would stop the flow of that ink.
