Re: Photo 1290 Changing ink cartridge
You may have to reset your printer, for when the green an red are flashing. Please do the following in order to reset the printer; 1-switch off printer itself 2-switch off at socket for 20 seconds 3-hold down both black buttons on front switch on at mains 4-switch on printer itself green and red flash together 5-now switch off at mains and leave for 3 seconds 6-while holding down both front buttons again, switch on at mains both green and red flash together so release 7-quickly hold down the left botton, the one with the scroll icon above it.
Hold this until it resets itself, - the print head will re charge and it will be obvious.
Restting by unpluggin rather than turning off at mains tends not to work.

im so sorry for the inconvineince that your having on this printer but let me help you.
Red paper and red ink light flash alternately and green power light is off
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, that means the printer is having a hardware issue
Green power light is off; red paper and ink lights flash (quickly)
possible problem: The printer may have an internal error. Turn off the printer, wait a few seconds, and turn it on again. If the lights are still flashing , that means the printer is having a hardware issue
The heads are clogged. Unplug the printer remove the cartridges and dump them (never use the same brand of it or the same ink),pour some cleaning fluid there and leave it to soak. If you have some empty cartridges fill them with cleaning fluid and use them.
go to the printer setting under control panel, right click on the icon then properties..you can check the ink level there...normally if your printer blinks and ask for a new cartridge..better follow what the printer says... : >

If you need to replace an ink cartridge in your printer, please follow the
To confirm which ink cartridge requires replacement,
please use the printer's control panel (there is a black ink out indicator, as
well as a color ink out indicator ), or the Status Monitor in your computer.
Red light flashing - Low ink Red light solid - Out of ink
Open the printer cover and press the INK (Cleaning) button for 3 seconds. The
print head moves to the center and the lights flash. 2. Lift up the ink
cartridge clamp. The cartridge rises up from its holder. 3. Remove the
cartridge and dispose of it carefully. If ink gets on your hands, wash them with
soap and water. If ink gets in your eyes, flush them immediately with water.
4. Unpack the new ink cartridge and remove the yellow tape. You must remove
the yellow tape from the top of the cartridge. Do not remove the clear seal
underneath the cartridge. Do not touch the green circuit board on the back of
the cartridge, or you may inhibit normal operation and printing. 5. Tilt the
new cartridge toward you slightly as you insert it. Lower the cartridge so that
the tabs rest on the hooks. Do not place the cartridge tabs under the hooks.
6. Press down firmly on the ink cartridge clamp until it snaps in place.
7. If you need to replace the other ink cartridge, repeat steps 2 through 6
before continuing with step 8 (to move printhead over to color (if black was
replaced first) press the cleaning button once). 8. Press the INK (Cleaning)
button once, and close the printer cover. The printer begins charging the ink
delivery system. 9. Wait until ink charging is finished (the power light
stops flashing and the red error light goes out).
Remove the black ink cartridge.
Check the place where the new cartridge should go. Check for a round small piece like a bushing or a little piece of pipe, stuck at the ink entrance of the printing head. This is a piece from the old cartridge, that sometimes gets loose and remains in place,and when the new one is placed, it doesnot go down to the right place to make contact with the electric connectors in the printing head.
If nothing solves...reinstall the printer drivers.
Good luck and Merry Christmas
Your info is slightly conflicting - I think.
As I remember the C60 has just 2 LED's:
1 - Green for Power
2 - Red for Error
The third button - Cartridge exchange - has no LED
Now it is a while since I looked at a C60 and my brain leaks like a sieve, but that's the way I remember it and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
The error codes I remember are:
Printer status - Indicators - Priority
Power - Error
Power ON condition On -
Ink sequence Blink -
Ink Cartridge change mode Blink -
Data processing Blink -
Paper Out *1 - On
Paper jam condition *1 - On
Ink end (Black) *1 - On -> Blink
Ink level low (Black) - Blink-> Blink
Ink end (Color) *1 - On -> Blink2
Ink level low (Color) - Blink-> Blink2
Ink end (Black and Color) - On -> On
No Ink Cartridge (Black or Color) *1 - On
Maintenance request (Ink Overflow Countererror) *1 Alt Blink Alt Blink
Fatal error *1 Off On
Special setting Blink2 Blink2
