If all the lights are flashing on your printer when you power it on, that means an internal error has occured.

My epson tx700 printer dispaly ink pad at end of life and printer not start


A fix from a forum:

Procedure 1 We found this procedure to work for the Stylus Photo 1270 type printer, and understand that it also works for the 870 range and even earlier models like the Stylus Color 740. The error is indicated on these printers by all four lights on the printer flashing. Even if you press the power switch on the printer, the lights continue to flash, and the printer does not turn off!
  1. Turn off your printer, ensuring that the print head is at it's home location and locked in place as normal;
  2. Power off the printer at the wall or by removing the power cable, for at least 20 seconds;
  3. When you restore power to the printer at the wall socket or by reinserting the cable, if the lights come back on straight away, the printer's power switch was 'on' - switch it off and return to step 1;
  4. Hold down the paper-feed button and the button with the ink-drops next to it, and then turn on the printer, still holding the buttons down;
  5. When the paper-out LED flashes, release the buttons;
  6. Press and hold the Cleaning button, until several lights flash - this will take a few seconds (i.e. then release the button);
  7. The printer will now attempt to reset, including resetting the EEPROM memory and running a short (about 10 seconds) cleaning cycle.
Procedure 2
  1. Turn off your printer, ensuring that the print head is at it's home location and locked in place as normal;
  2. Hold down the paper feed button only;
  3. Turn on the printer;
  4. As the paper feed light starts flashing, release the button;
  5. Immediately hold down the ink-drops button for some 10-20 seconds or until the printer springs into life;
  6. Allow printer to complete it's processing, then turn off for a few seconds, and back on again for a newly working printer!
Procedure 3 - for 1290 and possibly 890 printers 1290 printer with green (power / data) and red (ink / paper feed) lights flashing alternately:
  1. Switch off printer with panel switch;
  2. Switch off printer at mains switch - leave off for 20+ seconds;
  3. Hold down roll feed and sheet feed buttons;
  4. Switch on at mains;
  5. Switch on at printer panel;
  6. Continue to hold down roll and sheet feed buttons until both green and red lights flash together in synchronisation, not alternately;
  7. Switch printer off and then, after a few seconds, on again at mains switch;
  8. When red and green lights are both flashing in synchronisation, release the roll and sheet feed buttons;
  9. Press and hold down the ROLL FEED button (the one at the extreme left) and keep it down until the machine finishes whirring, cleaning etc and the green light comes on steady;
  10. Release the roll feed button and all should be well.

All the lights have just started flashing on my 1520 suddenly i have tried diconnecting it and then back on still the same


s printer has internal reservoir spomges for unused ink that purges from printhead each time printer parks its printhead. At some point they become saturated, something like 65k copies. The printer counter needs reset and sponges need replacement. Download the service manual (probably free) from Epson factory support site.

1520 - 'Pause' + 'Lid open' lights flash but cover closed. Why?


Thanks for your mail.
This is A2 size printer.
you can find your driver from Epson Webside..... with operating system.
your problem is pause light and Cover open light flash when initialize the printer.
1. you need to clean the carriage rod properly by using machine oil.
2. you need to change pump assembly and cap assembly.

your problem will solved. if not solve you have to check all cable that is it disconnected or tear by others (like rat). lastly you change carriage unit.

Make sure that the head can move on the carriage bar as this indicates a head assembly lock or jam. Make sure all the paper paths are clear and there is no tiny piece of paper stuck. Power it back on. If this does not resolve then you will need a visit to the repair shop or buy a new printer which is probably cheaper!

I need a driver to run the Epson Stylus Color 1520 on Windows XP I tried the ones from epson.com but dont work....I have tried everything....I need new hints.....thanks


WinXP has a built in driver - it misses a few small features of the Epson driver but works fine - go to Start\programs\printers and faxes\add printer and follow the prompts to install the "Epson Stylus COLOR 1520 ESC/P 2"

Epson 760 Problem


I found this procedure to work for the Epson Stylus 760 printer. The error is indicated by all four lights on the printer flashing and appears to be caused by the internal counters of the machine being exceeded. Even if you press the power switch on the printer, the lights continue to flash, and the printer does not turn off!

1) Turn off your printer, ensuring that the print head is at its home location and locked in place as normal.
2) Remove the four screws securing the top cover two at the rear and two at the front under the lift up cover and lift the cover off.
3) Remove both ink cartridges.
4) When you restore power to the printer at the wall socket or by reinserting the cable, if the lights come back on straight away, the printer’s power switch was ‘on’ - switch it off and return to step 1.
5) Hold down the paper-feed button and the button with the ink-drops next to it, and then turn on the printer, still holding the buttons down.
6) When the paper-out LED flashes, release the buttons.
7) Press and hold the Cleaning button, until several lights flash - this will take a few seconds (i.e. then release the button).
8) The printer will now attempt to reset, including resetting the EEPROM memory and running a short (about 10 seconds) cleaning cycle.
9) Insert the cartridges as normal and replace the cover.
