If by that you mean that the printer head carriage can't move then there can be 2 causes:
1 - the motor that moves the carriage has died - this is unfixable, you need a new printer.
2 - something is blocking the movement - close the printer, unplug it from the wall, lift the front panel and check that there's nothing that is blocking the movement (pieces of paper, the cartridge loading lever, the data cable to the printing head is jumbled); manually push the carriage first to the right bottom , then to the left of the printer and check again for stuff that would block the movement . If there's nothing to be seen and you can move it manually without a problem then the motor is dead.
If by that you mean that you can't take out the cartridges from the printing head then there is only one thing you can do - buy a new printer because the 2 causes that would make such thing happen (1 - the ink has leaked in the cartridge head and has glued them in place and 2 - the loading lever has broke) are terminal.

any chance it has dried out? run the test / head cleaning / did you reset the cartridge when you replaced it? generally if one or two colors work - the problem is the ink cartridge or the head for the colors not working. Did you remove the "tape" on the new cartridge?

Depending on the way the lights are flashing you could be able to fix this reasonably easily.
If the lights are flashing at high speed together (ie: at the same time) then it's a fatal error and the chances are you have some kind of problem such as:
Problem #2 is the waste pads and that's indicated by the flashing lights alternating rather than together.
If it's this then rather than reinvent the wheel (I've posted about this soooo many times now) here's a helpful little guide here:
http://www.octoink.co.uk/store/pages/Epson-C86.html (the C86 is the same as the C88 in terms of the waste pump/tubing design)
Resetting the waste ink counter requires the SSC utility from ssclg.com or a suitable adjustment utility which can be found for download if you search hard...
Hope that lot helps but if you get stuck, post again and I'll do what I can.

Some times you need to find the epson tools that comes on the CD to reset the printer. If you have upgraded the computer you may need to update your drivers at the epson sight.
Once you have opened the epson tools try cleaning the print heads.
then it should reset the inking system to default and read the new cartridges. If this doesn't work try shutting down the printer and removing the ink cartridges, restart the printer and allow it to find no cartridges the go through the process of reloading the ink cartridges again and cycle the printer.
If this doesn't work you may need to try and find a cleaning cartridge for the print heads. Since the printers always check to see if ink is getting to the print heads if there is no ink flow it will always come up like there are no ink cartridges installed.
Hope this helps
Make sure paper is in properly they can be very picky about that.
Try turning it off wait three minutes and turn back on.
Push Paper refill button Wait for cycle and see if paper light stays off if so...
Push the ink button
