I just today threw away my R220. If your 2 red lights are going and the power light is off, then your printer has died. It just happened to me. It sucks, but there is no way to fix it.

When the green blinking both the ink botton ligths and the botton - cp_light_1.gif power light is off and the red cpblinking both the ink botton ligths and the botton - cp_light_4.gif class= paper and cp_light_4.gif ink lights flash, the print head is not able to move back and forth freely. Follow these steps to clear the paper path:

  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Open the printer's cover.
  3. Gently remove any jammed paper or other obstructions from the paper path.
  4. Close the printer cover and turn the printer back on.

Hi, What says the EPSON printer monitor?
Maybe it's requiring service because the waste ink pad became full of ink if the software says that some parts of the printer are requiring service.

The printer may have an internal error or a hardware issue already.
Ink pads full usually indicates if all lights are flashing and an error msg would pop up in your computer screen "parts inside..."

Here's what you may want to try.
Just turn off the printer.
Checked for obstructions or any foreign objects inside the printer.
Try to check from inside the printer where the ink cart holder is, from where you load the paper and from where the paper comes out.

This seems like you have two separate errors.

For the loss of ink problem, see my previous posts about under head cleaning. This should get you going again, but if not, there is another known issue which causes these machines to stoip printing. This problem stems from a manufacturing "feature" which results in a broken pipe. To get a fix for this you should contact http://www.TheServiceManualShop.com and ask about there countermeasure for loss of ink in the Photo R series

The second error with the flashing lights depends on the sequence in which they flash. If the power light is off and the Ink and Paper lights flash half second on and half second off but alternating, then you have a maintenance request. This is easy to sort with yet another kit from The Service Manual Shop (R220 rescue kit)

If the sequence is Power light off but ink and paper flashing simultaneously then you have a fatal error. These are somewhat harder to attempt to fix and may require specialist knowledge and big parts that put the machine beyond economical repair.

Having said that, it can be worth taking the machine apart and removing the ASF assembly then reassembling as sometimes the feed mechanism ties itself in a knot and throws up a scary error.

Hope this helps a little

Both Ink & Paper lights flashing!


Hi JayBirde Do the lights flash Together (not alternate) and is it a quick flash (0.1 second on 0.1 second off)? If so, check the Status Monitor for a message. If it says Fatal Error or General Error, then you have a task on your hands! If the lights flash alternate (0.5 second on 0.5 second off) then this indicates a maintenence error and the status monitor should say parts inside your printer have reached the end of their life - or something similar. This much easier to fix with an R220 Rescue Kit from www.TheServiceManualShop.com - use their search to look for R220 Rescue. If you can't find it, just drop them a line and they will create one for you. Delivery is via instant download so no waiting around to get your machine fixed. If you have a general or Fatal error it means the printers head can not move using the norm,al amount of force - i.e. something is in the way. You can check a few things: Ensure their is nothing in the path of the print head - paper, foam from the pad, head lock not retracting, toy soldier on manouvers in the mechanism etc Chech the encoder strip ( a grey-ish looking plastic strip, near the drive belt for the print head) is clean and attached. Check the lid for the ink cart cover is full closed.
