I hope this will help you :)
* Green Power light flashes- The printer is receiving a print job, replacing an ink cartridge, charging ink, or cleaning the print head.
* RED paper light is On- If the CD/DVD try guide is open, close the CD/DVD tray guide, load paper, then press the paper button. Your paper ran out or multiple sheets loaded at the same time . Load paper and press the paper butoon to resume printing.
* RED paper light flashes- Paper is jammed in the printer. Press the paper button to eject the jammed paper. If the light is still flashing , open the cover and remove all paper, including any jammed or torn pieces. Then reload paper and press the paper button to continue printing.
* RED Ink Light Flashes - One or more cartridges are low on ink. Check the message that appears on your screen to determine which cartridge is low, or follow the instructions in " Checking the Ink Supply". Make sure you have a replacement cartridge.
* RED Ink Light is ON- One or more cartridges are out of ink or not installed. If you have just installed a new cartridge, it may be incomaptible with the printer or incorrectly installed. Reinstall it or replace it with the correct cartridge
* RED Ink and RED paper lights flash alternately- The CD/DVD tray guide was left open when you turned on the printer or when printing on paper. Just simply close it/

Turn off the printer, then open the cover and remove any jammed paper or other foreign objects. Turn the printer back on again. Or it may have an internal error.

I need to clear the inkjet heads on my Epson Stylus R220.

Follow the steps below to clean the print head using the Head Cleaning utility.
Make sure that the printer is turned on and the ink out light is off. Access the printer software. Click the Maintenance tab, then click the Head Cleaning button. Follow the on-screen instructions. The power light flashes while the printer performs the cleaning cycle. Never turn off the printer while the power light is flashing. Doing so may damage the printer. When the power light stops flashing, load a few sheets of paper and click Print Nozzle Check Pattern in the Head Cleaning dialog box to confirm that the print head is clean.

Turn it off then do the self test and check if the printer will printer without using computer
self test (press and hold the paper button and press and release the power button, if you can see the green light is flashing release your hold on the paper button. By the way make sure there is paper on the printer)
If it prints good then you need to check the settings on your computer.

Blinking both the ink botton ligths and the botton paper

I just today threw away my R220. If your 2 red lights are going and the power light is off, then your printer has died. It just happened to me. It sucks, but there is no way to fix it.

This seems like you have two separate errors.

For the loss of ink problem, see my previous posts about under head cleaning. This should get you going again, but if not, there is another known issue which causes these machines to stoip printing. This problem stems from a manufacturing "feature" which results in a broken pipe. To get a fix for this you should contact and ask about there countermeasure for loss of ink in the Photo R series

The second error with the flashing lights depends on the sequence in which they flash. If the power light is off and the Ink and Paper lights flash half second on and half second off but alternating, then you have a maintenance request. This is easy to sort with yet another kit from The Service Manual Shop (R220 rescue kit)

If the sequence is Power light off but ink and paper flashing simultaneously then you have a fatal error. These are somewhat harder to attempt to fix and may require specialist knowledge and big parts that put the machine beyond economical repair.

Having said that, it can be worth taking the machine apart and removing the ASF assembly then reassembling as sometimes the feed mechanism ties itself in a knot and throws up a scary error.

Hope this helps a little
