Question about Epson Stylus Photo R200 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Two red lights blinking, power light off

After a sheet of paper folded inside, the lights came on; I shut the printer, removed the paper & checked everything free. Turned back ON but after a few moves of the head , lights came again.
I took everything apart to check if anything could interfere; did not see.
Reading the blogs, i noticed it's a very common occurence.
Could it be some kind of safety that have to be resset ? it cannot be a fuse since nothing stopped the machine to make a high electric load?

Red light is constantly blinking and when try to print, there is always a paper jam

Every time there is paper jam, the printer knows the job is not completed and hence tries to re-print after the paper is removed and cover is shut.

Clear the print job from computer.
Power off the printer and Clear the paper jam (if any)
I would try to use different tray. The paper pickup roller in one path may be worn out.
eg Sheet feeder or multipurpose tray.
Load paper in new tray
Set the application to use new tray

Ensure you sue the right thickness (gsm) of the paper. Quality of paper is crucial. Too thin; too thick can affect functioning.

Does the red light blink or stay on sterady?

Issue: The Compact Photo printer power button is blinking red.

Solution: Turn the Compact Photo printer off, then back on again.

"Paper Jam" appears on the digital camera LCD Turn the printer off and disconnect the power cord from the printer. Then reconnect the power cord and power on the printer. If the printer fails to eject the paper, the printer may require service. Contact the Canon Customer Support help desk for assistance.

When you power down I would recommend also unplugging the printer from the power supply (wall outlet). Let it rest 5 - 10 minutes and then plug back in.

The manual says a blinking red power light indicates a problem in the printer, but the only solution provided it to turn off and on.

If there are no paper jams, and no other error messages hoepfully a completr power down will clear the error.

Issue: Printer's power button lights red without the camera's LCD monitor displaying any error message.

There is a malfunction in the printer.

Remove the paper from the paper-handling slot and take up any slack in the ink sheet. Turn the printe's power off and turn it on again.

If none of this helps I would check to see if my driver is current:

How to stop red blinking "paper"? couldn't stop

There is probably a paper jam since you shut it off as it was printing. Turn off the printer. Remove the tray and look inside. Remove any sheets of paper you see. Open the back of the printer (the pass-thru door) and remove any paper you see. Turn on the printer. If that fails, check the blink status against the manual's troubleshooting guide to locate a different solution.

Red light is blinking. Do not know why. How do I


Unfortunately, only way to see the error codes you have to get the printer to give you a green light so you can print out the configuration page. Far as the red light blinking, there could be a number of things it could be.

First, make sure the toner cart is installed correctly

- Check to make sure that there is paper in either the pull out for fold down tray.

- Check to make sure that there isn't a paper jam. Remove the toner cartridge and check to see if there is any paper stuck inside.

If you get the green light after checking those things, press both buttons down for about 2 seconds and release. On the configuration page there will be a set of numbers that indicate what the error codes are. If you can get me that information I can tell what they mean.

My laserjet 2550 won't print. The light beside the triangle is blinking but I don't know what that means.

Hello there,

What is the color of the blinking light? Is it red or green? If its red, then there must be a cartridge issue or paper jam. Did you load the paper correctly? Also, please try to do a reset of the printer.

is the piece of paper removed? or there parts of the paper w/c was nt removed? if the whole paper was removed already, try to use this steps..step 1. remove the power cord of the printer. step 2. press the power on/off of the printer while plugging the power cord. and wait for 10 seconds before releasing the on/off button..then put on your printer. but if some pieces of broken paper inside the printer try to clear it first then try printing.

Cannot print

If this is a 2200dtn, have you checked the duplex turn around tray under the printer? You can access this by removing tray 2, inside on the front left you should see a small green tab which will release a drop down tray. Many times a sheet or even just a piece of paper can get lodged in the sensor causing a paper jam condition.

Paper jammed

I had exactly the same problem, printer virtually new, printed great for a couple of weeks, then today refused to take paper with E3 flashing. No apparent blockage - all looked clean, tried all the utilities, roller cleaning and plate cleaning, but wouldn't take paper!
Solved it by moving the paper size guide all the way to the left, then folding the top 20mm of a sheet of A4 over and loading it so fold is at the top facing you. This acts as a catcher for anything stuck in the printer. Hold the paper slightly crooked with the left side slightly further into the printer and press the copy button (with nothing in the scanner!). It should draw the paper in now (with some persuasion) and think it is printing (it's blank,of course). Check as the top of the sheet goes in that the fold is still tight and doesn't open up as it feeds in. Lo and behold, mine brought out a 5p piece - printer now prints perfectly!
