Question about Epson Stylus Photo R200 InkJet Printer

3 Answers

I have an Epson 1280 with the power light (green) and the communications light (red) both flashing. They flash even when I disconnect the parallel cable from the printer. The ink cartridge holder will not move either....any suggestions? Thanks Julie I have an Epson 1280 which won't print: when turned on, the maintenance light (red) flashes alternately with the power light (green).  Unplugging the printer and USB to Mac (OS10.8) does not resolve the problem.  Both ink cartridges are 3/4 full. What to do?  Scott

This is an indication that your ink cartridge(s) is/are low or empty. Replace the ink cartridges and printing should resume.

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 :-)

A flashing green on printer light generally means its waiting for a command for instance, push print, stop etc... also check that the pause button has not been pushed. if so depress again to release printing process

Red & Green Lights keep flashing on Epson Stylus Photo1280


I had the same problem. You need to reset the waste ink counter:

1. Turn printer off, unplug power cord. Disconnect computor interface cable (back of the printer).
2. After one minute, reattach power cord, but not the computor interface cable.
3 Hold down the LOAD/EJECT and CLEANING buttons simultaneously (cleaning button has ink drop on it) .
4 Turn printer on. Release all buttons as soon as the paper out light flashes.
5 Quickly press the cleaning button, and hold for 10 sec while paper out light flashes.
6 Release the button and the printer will initialize.
7. Once the initialization is complete, turn the printer off.
8. Reconnect the interface cable.
9. Turn the printer on and try to print your document.

This process worked for me. Good luck!

Epson stylus 880 printer


"Turn the printer on while holding down both the ink and paper buttons. When the paper light flashes release both buttons", then hold down the ink button for approx. half a minute until the printer lights flash again then release it. That resets the printer.”
