Blinking Lights! I have Epson 760 with 3 touch pads and the on/off touch pad. All are lit and blinking. Left pad covers the color & black & white cartridges, center pad covers paper and the right pad isthe off/on switch. I don't know where the ink soak-up pads are and I don't have a cleaning touch pad. These were referenced in other fixes.

Epson Stylus R230 Magenta Not working


Hi i'm a printer Technician
The problem of your printer could be that the surface of the printhead is dirty, and the Cleaning pad/tab doesn't work so good..

Here's a guide i wrote that I done multiple times on my customers printers:

1. Power on the printer, and when the carriage moves from the right to the left side instantly disconnect the power cord.

2. Move the Printer carriage (where the cartridges are installed) on the EXTREME LEFT side, please do it very slowly!

3. Take a syringe of hot water but not boiling, MAX. 70-75 °C

4. Expect the extreme right side of the printhead.. You could be able to see a little squared pad, dirty of ink, and on the left side of that PAD you could see a little rubber strip.

5. Take a tissue of paper and dab the furface of the Cleaner Pad (The squared pad you seen)

6. Take a new tissue of paper and place on it some hot water

7. Without burning your hands try to clean as soon as possible the rubber strip on the right part of the Pad.
It would be completely without ink on it

8. Take the hot water syringe and place some hot water on the Cleaner Pad (the amount of water is proportionate to the printer, you have to place water until you see that the surface of the pad is COMPLETELY full of water.

9. Gently move the carriage VERY SLOWLY on the extreme right side of the printer (where there's the Cleaning Pad)

10. Leave the printer like so for 3-5 hours, then restart the printer and do 2-3 cleaning cycles, better with a brand new black cartridge

11. Do a test print (Nozzle Check) and see if there are some changes!

Hope the Best!!

Epson P50 does not respond. Blinking lights and stuck cartridges.


This is a standard "Service required" issue where the waste pads (or nappies) in the printer are considered full by the printer and it wants them changing.

An Epson service centre can replace the pads and reset the waste counter for a considerable amount of money although most it seems either tell you it's dead and recommend you buy a new one, or they reset the counter, ignore the pads and leave you to flood your printer.

The more cost effective option is to locate one of a number of reset utilities such as the AdjProg utility for the T50 (it's compatible with the P50) and an external waste ink kit (like the Printer Potty).

The latter is easy enough to fit on a P50 thanks to the access hatch located in the rear left quadrant of the printer.

New cyan cartridge not printing. Have run a nozzle clean and still not working. Is recognised as a Epson genuine and as a full cartridge. Is there a way of cleaning a single print head?


I'm suggesting the forum below. Have great suggestions on cleaning print heads and pads.

Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges? ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .


This is the only advice I can give you.

The next step would be to disassemble the Epson, and clean the Pads/Heads. Click on link below.:

I located a page on http://www.fixyourownprinter.com forum, which had plenty of details about similar issues.

If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

IF YOU ARE USING GENERIC CARTRIDGES, MAYBE IT WOULD BE BETTER IF YOU DISABLE THE INK MONITOR.

This is the only advice I can give you.

Both the red and green light are on and blinking.What is wrong with my Epson C60?


kiryakitsa1 You should download the SSC Service Utility as pineworks says. Read the instructions and warnings. Go to Reset counter protection and press reset. You may recieve a warning about replacing your waste ink pads. I have always reset the protection counter without replacing the waste ink pads and I have never had a problem. If you see ink drainage then you should replace the waste ink pads and then reset the protection counter. I have never had a problem with ink heads and I have done this many times.

All four lights blink & can't be turned off


Hello,
this is an error message relating to your waste ink pads. You can reset the counter, and be back in business but you will still need to clean the pads and reinsert. Here is your cd rom booklet link for help if you have no manual.

I installed new cartidges and all the lights are blinking and the E light is bling in the print option


The safey counter has run out for the ink pad. You won't be able to do anything with the print until you reset it.

Go to the Epson website and download the reset program and run it.

They will have a disclaimer telling you that the ink pad MUST be replaced by a trained tech, or the ink will overflow and short out electrical parts. I have had my printer for over 5 years and most of my ink goes into the ink pad as I dont use it much and most of the time at least one of the print heads is clogged, my pad was no where near overflowing. I soaked up as much as I could with tissues.
If you move the catridges to the left and look down you will see the ink pad. Use rubber gloves, it is very messy
This is a utility to manage your ink. Gives an accurate count of how many ink shot are left in each cartridge. The printer told me I need a new magenta but this program says I have 13% left. It also has sepparate routines for cleaning the black and color (unfortunately not individual cartridges)

Epson Stylus Printer CX4600


Hi,

I don't know if this will work on an Epson, but it does on Cannon. The pads on the cartridges or the ink jets in the printer head may be cloged with dry ink. Get some Q-tips and rubbing alcohol (water is a poor substitute). Take out the ink cartridges and touch the pad on the bottom with a Q-tip (one for each color). If there is color the cartridge pad is OK. Take a fresh Q-tip dip it in rubbing alcohol and GENTLY rub the little holes on the bottom of the plastic box the cartridges go in. Thse are the print head jets. You should see color. You may need to clean it a couple of times if the ink has dried down into the jets. It is OK to have the Q-tip pretty wet, but not dripping.

Hope this helps
