Question about Epson Stylus C88 InkJet Photo Printer
Both ink and paper feed lights flash red. Last print job printed and then there was a loud noise and those lights started blinking.
Two possible causes..
1. If the ink and paper lights are flashing alternately with each other (ie: not together) then it's the old "Service required" problem and a quick visit to wasteink.co.uk will help with that.
2. The cleaning station/wiper (otherwise known as the parking pad) has managed to pull itself out of position and is currently doing an impression of a jack in the box instead of being hooked into the rest of the cleaning/parking system.
If it's the latter you need to move the printhead out of the way (to the left) and then push the white cleaning part down and then across to the right so that it couples up with the black part of the parking pad properly... It's very difficult to explain how this looks but if I get a chance tomorrow I'll put some pictures up on wasteink.co.uk with some troubleshooting info.
That said, you'll probably figure it out for yourself and it's just a bit of trial and error until you get the pad hooked up properly...
Oh and once it's happened once it'll happen again so in my case I put a small dab of hot melt glue on the connection point between the white and black part (once it was back in position) and this has resolved the problem for me.... Your mileage may vary however.
Hope the above helps anyway...
