Turn off printer
-check for specks of paper inside the printer or parts that may appear to be damage.
-turn printer on

If you'll get the same error lights chances are there is an internal error. Sensor mechanism might be damage.

Red light is blinking, What is the the meaning?


Hi, Here is the meaning of the flashing red light. Red probsolv.6.3.4.jpg paper light flashes Paper is jammed in the printer. Press the probsolv.6.3.5.jpg paper button to eject the paper. If that doesn't work, turn off the printer, open the cover, and pull the paper out from the front, including any torn pieces. Then turn on the printer, reload paper, and press the probsolv.6.3.6.jpg paper button. You can download the user's guide for this product from here. Good luck!

Two red lights flashing, but i can't figure out what's wrong


According to the documentation for your printer.

Red probsolv.6.3.11.jpg paper and probsolv.6.3.12.jpg ink lights flash alternately 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. If the lights are still on, contact your dealer or Epson as described in Where To Get Help.

Printer stopped working Epson C86 and red middle light button on


The red middle light is the paper feed indicator. If it is on, it means the paper feed is (or the computer thinks it is) jammed. Remove all paper from the hopper and make sure all bits of paper are removed from the feed mechanism. Press the paper feed button (the middle one) a few times during this process to try to feed through any jammed pieces. If this doesn't work, you have an internal jam or broken feed system, or your main board has gone haywire.

Any further investigation requires you to remove the printer top cover, which you may or may not feel like tackling. If you don't, take your printer to a technician, or sell it on E-Bay for what you can get. If you do, post a new comment to this effect and I will provide a tutorial on removing the top cover. It's not difficult if you know how.

C86 Epson printer will not print.


Please see your user manual for the meaning of the various light combinations, or if you don't have one, see:

http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/sc86__/sc86__ug/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm

and look at "Diagnosing Printer Problems".

BOBDOYLE - can you confirm which red light is flashing? If it is the ink light, see the instructions for changing ink cartridges. If it is the paper jam light, check for a paper jam. If you still cannot fix it, come back with a new comment giving any further information.

If this advice was helpful, please rate it.

GUESTS - you both have quite different problems to bobdoyle. If you require specific further help, please register and post a separate request for help.

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!!
