This light is an indication that one or more of your ink cartridges is out of ink. You need to replce them before the machine will print.

If the red light keeps flashing and you can print, then it means your color cartridge has no more ink in it. Please replace it. If this is not the case, switch off the printer for few minutes (10mins), unplug the power cord and reinstall all the cartridges.

If you need further help, let me know.


Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Two red lights blinking


The flashing red light next to a page and bin indicates paper or a CD/DVD has jammed in the printer.

The flashing red light next to the drop indicates that the ink is low - if it is solid on then the ink is out.

Both of these lights flashing rapidly together means taht the print head carriage is obstructed by jammed paper or some other material and cannot return to the home position. Turn off the printer then open the paper support and the printer cover. Then remove any paper or other obstructions from the paper path by hand / tweezers. Then, turn the printer back on and the fault should clear. If the lights are stioll flashing then check the paper path again and see if the print head carriage assembly is jammed by gently moving it very slightly along the carriage. Don't force this or do this too hard or too far as you can cause some damage to the drive

How do I know if the ink cartridge is empty, or if the blurry prints are caused by something else? is there any part of the printer that I need to clean? can't find the info I'm looking for in the...


Usually, if the ink cart is empty, a notification will pop out on your screen. And you can also check it by going to the printers program which is installed in your computer. The status of the cart is also shown in the document print settings. And the most visible indication that you are running out of printer is by checking the lights on the printer itself. If you see the tear-drop like light blinking orange or red, it means that ink is running out.

If its blurry, yes there are things you can do with it. First, do a print head cleaning. Most of the printers have this Maintenance tool for such things. If that doesn't work still, try to locate the print head and dab a soft tipped thing, an earbud will do, with water.

Most basic thing you can do is try to get the cartridge out of the printer and then shake it.

Blinking Red Lights


You need to reset the ink head shot counters and protection counter. Basically the printer has worked out that the waste ink pad is full. It often isn't. Google SSC Service Utility, install it, and select your printer and model in the lists on the tabs at the top. When it's running, turn the printer on, and right slick on the SSC Icon in your System Tray (near the clock). Reset the protection counter, and head shots counter. Perform a reset of the printer, and you should find that the problem has gone away.

Printer not printing


I hate Epson. Had problems with Stylus C82 and now my replacement Stylus C86 has given me nothing but trouble.
I've just replaced all four ink cartridges and now when I print I'm only getting blank pages. I uninstalled, reinstalled, and nothing is working. I even called Epson, twice, only to be routed to the Phillipines where neither person was very helpful, in fact, had a hard time understanding their English. So this is what I;m going to do. I'm taking this bloody Stylus C86 outside and smash it with a hammer..then I'm going to buy a HR Printer...and if anybody from Epson reads this...good luck...your products SUCK!!
