If the error is fatal then there is NOTHING you can do at home to sort the problem out. If Epson are refusing to repair the unit because you have repeatedly used non genuine ink then you can try and take them to task on the legality of that decision (depending upon consumer law in your area) but the chances of you getting it sorted without costing a fortune are slim to none.

There is an error which shows up in the status monitor as MAINTENANCE error and this can fixed relatively easily. It's symptoms are similar. However, a fatal error is generally just that - Fatal - and there is nothing the home user can do as this generally requires parts fitting.

Your non genuine ink is almost certainly NOT to blame for the fatal error though. At worst the **** ink you use will clog nozzles and may even ruin the print head by clogging all the nozzles and causing only blank pages to be produced. BUT can you prove this to Epson in court?

My advice - bin the printer and replace it with one from a manufacturer who appears to give a damn about their products and customers as much as their fat pockets!!

Epson R1900 cartridge carrier goes lef and grinds until it stops with flashing lights


It;s general error or fatal error. Find the Adjusment Program for R1900, then Click Printer Information Check. You will find the latest fatal Error code. You can figure the actual error of your printer.

Unknown Printer Error EPSON 860. All three lights are flashing at the same time, and printer will not work.


Sound like you have a mainboard issue. It's time to replace this old workhorse unless you can find an old one with a good mainboard for cheap. A replacement printer is cheaper than the mainboard.

My r230 is having this trouble: the two red lights are blinking.


If the Ink Out light flashes, the printer is getting low on ink; if it is on solid, the printer is completely out of ink and you need to replace the cartridge; if it is flashing rapidly, the printer detected a print head unit or ink cartridge installation error. If the Paper Out light is on solid, you need to install paper in the printer; if it is flashing, the printer detected a paper jam. When both the Ink Out and Paper Out lights are on solid, the printer thinks that there is a carriage error; if both lights are flashing, there is a fatal error and the printer will need to be sent in for service Source(s): http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/suppo...

Power and error botton blinking epson cx 2900


Could be ink cartridge no contact, or it is dirty. Or if you try to print and this printer that flag a message " end of service life......parts." . You should reset it counter using third party software. In kinda connection with ink pad.

Having difficulty on printing documents by using epson cx2900?


Have you changed the ink cartrage? Could simply be out of ink.
Check your last printed item. See if it is getting lighter toward the end of the document.
