    I got a readout parts inside your printer are at the ene of their service life. I replaced the ink and the printer quit working. The printer was working fine till a read out came on when I was printing. I deleted the software and tried to redo it but it will not work. I am lost .

    After I received the message (Parts inside your printer are at the end of their service), I called Epson, Best Buy, Circut City and a repair man in Port Angeles WA. The closes repair person near my home is 60 miles from my home. I was told "buy a new one". After I head this not once from repair person and dealers I did just that. However now I have a new RX595 and I can not covert negatives into photos or CD. What do you suggest I do?. Do I have to now buy an expensive scanner ? If you suggest a scanner which one do you recommend that I do not have to take a loan on my home to get. Thank you

    I have the same problem and my R220 is less than 2 years old! What I've read so far indicates is more expensive to replace the ink pads than to just buy a new printer. Is that true???

    Thanks for the help!

The erroris an ink overflow protection error and is fairly easy to rectify. Youneed to clean the waste ink pads in the bottom of the printer and thenuse some software to reset the internal counter. You can download allthis stuff from the link below:

http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/834175-epson-stylus-photo-r200-r210-rescue-and

A waste ink tank, does not stop the ink counter incrementing each timeink is used. All it will save you is the time taken to replacethe ink pads - which you can wash out and reuse anyway.

My printer suddenly decided tell me that parts inside your computer are at the end of thier service life see yr printer documentation. Up til this moment working perfectly. Using compatable ink cartridges, but have used them before with no problem. Pushing both flashing lights does nothing. Cartridges seem stuck far right? Wadda think?

This is probably due to the waste ink pads needing replacement. If you still have this problem and would like help solving it, please post a new comment to this effect.

Epson Stylus PHOTO R220 red lights keep flashing


I hope this will help you :)

* 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/
* Green Power Light is Off; RED paperand RED Ink Lights flashing- Paper may be blocking movement of the print head. 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. Turn off the printer, wait a few seconds, then turn it on again.

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.

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.
