    I have the same problem, the green and red lights flashing alternately. Eposon tell me that it's some component tht collects ink fron startup when a little is squirted from the head. It needs to be taken to a service centre who will charge for the component to be fixed or, alterntely, I can spend about the same amount (£40) on a new printer and no I cannot be told how to do this myself "for healthand safety reasons!* This is outrageous!. A perfectly functional printer will now be thrown into a landfil because Messrs Epson design their printer with and end of life designed into it!. They should design a produyct that facilitates customers servicing it!.

    Any potential Epson customers be warned!!

    I have the same problem.I switched the computer/printer on as usual but all i get is flashing green/red lights with no 'movement' at all....i have tried to press the two buttons on the printer in all sorts of sequences to no effect at all.The carriage does not even begin to move...if it did I might try changing/removing/cleaning one or both of the cartridges...I cannot do this either !

The flashing lights are a "Maintenance request error" or a "Fatal error". Most of the time it is a "Maintenance request error" which means the waste ink pads need to be serviced. You can reset the waste ink counter but the ink pads will need to be serviced at some point.

Epson stylus c48 paper not loaded correctly error

"c48 not loading..."
Check that paper is not curled at leading edge.
Some printers are finicky about exact straightness.
Otherwise check:
Paper not glossy - roller-gripper may be doing a 'wheelie' on the edge.
Rubber gripper not worn down - the pickup roller usually has one or more rubber 'rings' around the roller to grab & feed paper by friction.
If all else fails, open cover and inspect gearing to roller, broken brackets which can cause misalignment.
Try running 'open' and see what happens.

The red and green lights are flashing continously and it won print

The lights continually flashing indicate a paper jam or the printer being out of ink. Check/clear any paper jam and verify the ink cartidge is set correctly.

Reset your counter back to zero. But for some you must also check the waste bin status. Need disassembling this is to ensure ink will not overflow from your printer.

Reseting is only software base. Try this link

Post again if you cannot still got it.

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
