Get yourself a rag and new paper ready. You need to get dirty and start cleaning the head and mechanism of the area where the ink flows. Include the pads where the ink dislodges. Remember to use a pair of plastic gloves, it will be messy but the satisfaction received after success is rewarding.

Hold down the Stop/Reset Button (it has a red triangle on it) on your printer for 10 to 15 seconds until the light stops flashing.
This will disable the ink level monitoring for the empty cartridge, but be careful not to print with a completely empty cartridge, as this can burn out the print head.
Print Cartridge Status
The Print Cartridge Status Light flashes when one
or both of your print cartridges are low on ink,
improperly installed, or malfunctioning. It will
also flash if you are trying to use the wrong print
cartridge type. If the problem is low ink, the light
will stop flashing when you open the top cover.
For any other print cartridge-related problem, the
Print Cartridge Status Light will continue to flash.
To check the status of your print cartridges, open
the printer's top cover. The yellow arrow on the
print cartridge cradle aligns with one of five Print
Cartridge Status icons.
After few head cleaning, ink counter running low, so ink ligh (red) flashing. Then ink counter runing out, so the light stayed on. After replacing both of ink, red light stayed on, because the compatible ink (chip) not recognized by printer. Check epson status monitor. Use original ink or refill and reset ink level counter.
If the ink level is low in a print cartridge, the Print Cartridge Status light stops flashing when the printer’s top cover is opened. When you open the panel the ink cartridges slide to the center , as far as checking the ink level find and right click on the printer icon, click properties, and find ink cartridges and ink levels.
My C60 Epson Stylus printer is not printing. First of all the paper jammed, I pull the paper from the front and since then the catridge holder is not going to the middle to print. also the green light keepon flashing and the red light stays on. I need your help.
When red ink light flashes - one or more ink cartridges is low. When you print, a message on your screen will tell you which one(s).
When red ink light remains on - one or more ink cartridges is empty. When you try to print, a message on your screen will tell you which one(s).
Furthermore: When following the procedure for installing a new cartridge, if the red ink light was on or flashing, pressing the ink button will cause the carriage to stop with the cartridge that needs replacing under the "ink out mark" (ink droplet with a slash through it).
I have installed all new cartridges. "Ink is out" comes up when I try to print. It is properly installed and is the second set of ink cartridge this has happened with. The "On" and 'Ink" lights do not stop flashing. The printer does not see the new cartridges.
Check the status of each cartride by using the ink lamp.
You have 3 lamps
(A) Alarm lamp
(B) Black ink lamp
(C) Color ink lamp
Make sure that the LED is on standby mode.
a) If the ink lamp lights.
Cause : Ink is low.
Action :You can continue printing for a while, but we recommend you have a new FINE cartridge available.
b) The Alarm Lamp lights and the ink lamp flashes .
* If "E, 1, 3 " is displayed on the LED, ink has run out.
Cause : Ink level cannot be detected.
Action : Ink may have run out.
The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled since the ink level cannot be correctly detected.
If you want to continue printing without this function, press Stop/Resset buttonfor atleast 5 seconds.
Canon recommends to use new genuine Canon cartridges in order to obtain optimum qualities.
* If E,1, 6" is displayed on the LED,
Cause : Ink has run out.
Action. Rreplace the ink cartridge and close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover).
If printing is in progress, you want to continue printing, press the Stop/Reset button for atleast 5 seconds with the ink cartridge installed. Then printing can continue under the ink out condition.
The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled.
Replace the empty ink cartridge immediately after the printing. The resulting print quality is not satisfactory, if printing is continued under the ink out condition.
c) Only the ink lamp flashes
Cause : The function for detecting the remaining in level is disabled.
Hope this helps.

Have a good day.
Try lifting up the cover. If the ink level is low in a print cartridge, the Print Cartridge Status light stops flashing. If the problem is not related to low ink, the light continues to flash after the cover is opened. It might be that the new cartridge is defective. Check the connections and see if there isn't anything keeping it from making contact.
Even if the ink level is low, you can continue printing.Press the paperfeed knob for 5 seconds. inklevel indicator will stop now.
Sometimes a new (or refilled) cartridge is not recognised correctly.
When one color is really mt, stop printing and replace inmideatly the colorcartridge.Printing or scanning without the 2 cartridges in place is impossible.
