Both lights flashing may be an indication that there is a ink cartridge failure.

Please consider the following and let me know if does not match.

"
Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead."

Red and green lights are flashing alternatively and colour ink cartridge has run out. How do i change the cartridge?


Flashing alternately mean waste pad full. Reset using SSC utility or Adjusment program/resetter. But, you must replace cartridge before. Turn off printer, unlock carriage lock (left side of carriage at parking position). Move carriage by hand to replacement position. Replace ink tank. Reset using the resetter.

Red and green lights flashing, won't print or respond to commands. Problem started when cleaning heads and subsequently testing with the print pattern. Monitor says a general printing error and suggests...


The heads are clogged. Unplug the printer remove the cartridges and dump them (never use the same brand of it or the same ink),pour some cleaning fluid there and leave it to soak. If you have some empty cartridges fill them with cleaning fluid and use them.

The red light is blinking and it doesn't print.


There are actually some certain meaning on the red light and green light showing different information to user. The summaries are:
1) Green On, Red Off = Printer Ready.
2) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Fast-Flashing = Printer warm up.
3) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Off = Printer off-line.
4) Green Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Processing Data.
5) Green Off, Red On = Cover Opened, Toner Empty or Developer Unit / Drum unit missing.
6) Green Off, Red Fast-Flashing = Paper Jam or waiting for jam reset.
7) Green Off, Red Slow-Flashing = Paper Empty or Paper tray is not inserted.
8) Green Off, Red Off = Printer power is off.
9) Green Very-Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Printer in sleep mode.
10) Green (any condition above), Red Slow-Flashing = Toner low or paper empty.

So what is your printer condition? Better know what is going on your printer so can solve the problem.

Epson Stylus CX3600 error


remove the cartridges then, the press and hold all the available buttons on your printer where it could cause a machine resetting...

you could also remove the cartridges then wipe the circuitry of the cartridge... (the gold-like connector)

then turn off your printer without putting back the cartridges... (leave it turned off for 5 minuets)

turn your printer on then it should be ok

(post back if it doesn't work)

Epson C66 red light stays on for ink


The first time you install ink cartridges, the printer must charge its print head for about 90 seconds. Wait until charging finishes (the green power.jpg power light stops flashing) before you turn off the printer, or

it may charge improperly and use excess ink the next time you turn it on. If the printer stops moving or making noise, but the green power.jpg power light is still flashing after 5 minutes, turn off the printer. If the light is still flashing when you turn it back on, contact Epson.
Turn off the printer, then make sure the ink cartridges are inserted completely and the ink cartridge cover is closed completely. Also make sure no packing material remains in the printer. Wait a moment, then turn the printer back on to clear the error.

No response


If you´re pressing the ink button and the carriage still does not moves is cause the level of the ink is low, but it does not finished yet. You must use the printer more, then the red light will stop to blink and hold on, then you´ll be able to change the cartridge.
