Try taking out the inks you have installed make sure that you hear a click on each of the inks when you install them. If the issue persists the printer may not recognizing the inks you have installed.

Have not used my Epson R1800 for almost 6 months. When I turn on the power the printer head, with the cartridges, stayed at the very right end, not moving. The paper and ink lights flash and the head just...


Your User's Guide is available here:

http://files.support.epson.com/pdf/r1800_/r1800_ug.pdf

After leaving the printer inactive for a extended period you should expect the ink cartridges to be dried up and the print head 'gummed' in place.

You will need to refer to page 82 of the pdf, Cleaning the Printer.

As part of cleaning remove the existing ink cartridges and while the cartridges are removed try and clean the print head of any ink residue. Note that if the red light is on or flashing above an ink cartridge the printer sees it as empty (dried up).

The print head will not move if ink cartridges need replacement; replace ink cartridges according to the red lights, likely all. Press the ink button to see if the printer will begin the charging cycle. If all is well the green power light will stay on and the red ink light will go out.

If you do not get this desired outcome try Cleaning the Print Head, page 73 of the User Guide. Hold down the ink button when the red light is off for 3 seconds. Run a nozzle check pattern; if nozzels are not printing a clean pattern, repeat this process up to 3 or 4 times.

Connected r1800 to mac, print browser page, blinking power light, no printing


Run a nozzle check to see if all inks are printing out. Turn printer off, then hold down the paper button ( top ), while holding it down, press and hold the power button. When you see the power light flashing green, release both buttons. It should print a nozzle check pattern. You should see 7 columns of different colored lines and one checkered board pattern. There should be no gaps and breaks on the lines. If pattern is no good, you need to do head cleaning.Press the ink button for 3 seconds. Power light will flash and print head will move. This will take one to two minutes. After it is complete ( power light turns solid green ) you need to do a nozzle check pattern to verify if there is improvement or If head cleaning needs to be repeated.

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.

My yellow ink head on my r1800 printer is clogged.


If it is within warranty then contact epson support. If not and normal head cleaning doesnt work then try a print head cleaning solution such as:

Hope this helps.

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.
