My Epson Stylus photo 830 flashing lights


Got the alternate red/green flashing light ona photo830. The app shown by Bill Miller sorted the problem and got the printer back on line. Use the 'protection counter' / 'reset counter option'

Thanks Bill :-)

Epson Stylus PHOTO R220 red lights keep flashing


I hope this will help you :)
* Green Power light flashes- The printer is receiving a print job, replacing an ink cartridge, charging ink, or cleaning the print head.
* RED paper light is On- If the CD/DVD try guide is open, close the CD/DVD tray guide, load paper, then press the paper button. Your paper ran out or multiple sheets loaded at the same time . Load paper and press the paper butoon to resume printing.
* RED paper light flashes- Paper is jammed in the printer. Press the paper button to eject the jammed paper. If the light is still flashing , open the cover and remove all paper, including any jammed or torn pieces. Then reload paper and press the paper button to continue printing.
* RED Ink Light Flashes - One or more cartridges are low on ink. Check the message that appears on your screen to determine which cartridge is low, or follow the instructions in " Checking the Ink Supply". Make sure you have a replacement cartridge.
* RED Ink Light is ON- One or more cartridges are out of ink or not installed. If you have just installed a new cartridge, it may be incomaptible with the printer or incorrectly installed. Reinstall it or replace it with the correct cartridge
* RED Ink and RED paper lights flash alternately- The CD/DVD tray guide was left open when you turned on the printer or when printing on paper. Just simply close it/
* Green Power Light is Off; RED paperand RED Ink Lights flashing- 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. Or it may have an internal error. Turn off the printer, wait a few seconds, then turn it on again.

Hi my R1800 has 2 flashing red lights (top) and no power light. What can i do? MAria


Hi.
It could be your ink tray has overflowed.
There is software http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml which might help.

Install this program, set your printer model and the driver (Epson Stylus Photo R1800) when it starts up. Close the program, and it will minimize to the
tray on the taskbar - right click on the icon and goto "Protection Counter". Choose
"Reset Protection Counter". Choose "Yes" to the question about the waste ink pads,
then switch the printer off for 1 minute. This should cure the problem.


It might be worth a try

R1800 service required


Martin,

Did you ever find a solution. I was away for a month and just tried to use my epson photo R1800 and the same thing happened to me....flashing lights and a "service required" note. Before I left it worked fine.

Flash feed paper & ink light my epson r1800 printer


Do you mean that the paper light flashes at the same time as the ink light or do they flash alternately (ie: paper on, ink off -> paper off, ink on)?

If so the waste ink pads are full and you need to do the following:

1. Reset the waste ink counter:
Grab the tool linked from the wasteink.co.uk site (see bottom).

2. Redirect your waste ink into an external tank OR replace your waste ink pads.. (external tank is easier).

Instructions for the R1800 are available from this site



If the lights are doing something different, please post again with detailed information about how they flash and I can what else it might mean.

Hope that helps.

Epson R230


If that is the case?

Here is the solution.

Ask your reseller to give you a reseter software.

Maybe because the printer exceeded to it duty cycle.

Duty cycle is printouts maybe about 5000 printouts

R1800 printer problem


I fixed the problem, the PW and Ink Mark sensors needed cleaning. I was able to access and remove both sensors after removing the printer housing, and moving the print head to the far left. There's enough space to unscrew the cover for the sensors, and unplug them with needle nose pliers and a couple fingers, clean them both, dry them, re-install, etc.. all is well now after some re-alignment procedures with the epson factory service program.

Return it to them. If it is under warranty, they should replace it.
