Check the printer cable which is connected to your computer and the printer. Replace the cable may resolve your problem.

Hi,
First thing I would say if the printer has been used for 8 years, I would consider buying a replacement. One that is much faster and higher quality can cost as little as 30-40$ brand new. The printer would need to be diagnosed and repaired by a professional and the printer isn't worth investing any time or money into to be honest.
Thank you,
Lee

Can not answer without more information. What brand of printer?
Are the paper/ink lights flashing alternately?

If your answers are, "Epson" and "yes, alternately", then the model number will help. Or, google "epson waste ink pad reset" for how to fix.

Green light out both red lights flashing alternately


If the lights are flashing alternately then this is the Service Maintenance request by the printer. Usually this is related to the ink pads. You will need to change the ink pads and use a SSC utility.
