Hi I have just put in ink cartridges and the reg light check print cartridges keeps flashing is there anyone there to help me


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Sir/Ma'am If the Check Print Cartridge message is shown and Red Light Flashing then it means that Either ink Cartridge is not installed properly or the function for detecting the ink level is disabled. For it Make sure that you install ink cartridges at correct position as indicated by the label on the print head holder. Press push mark until ink cartridge click into the place.
If you are sure then you have installed ink cartridge properly then try following to stop the flashing of red Light.
  1. Lift the lid to the printer (cartridges are on the right side.)
  2. Turn the printer off, then power it on again.
  3. Unplug the power cable from the back of the printer when the grinding noise starts.
  4. Move the carriage towards the middle of the printer (this procedure may take a couple of tries to get the timing correct.)
  5. Take out the cartridges and close the top cover.
  6. Reconnect the power cord. The power and the resume lights (green and red) should be on.
  7. Open the top cover, reinstall the cartridges, and close the top cover.
Now Turn On the printer, Mostly this issue is resolved by this,
But if still you get the message and red light still flash then surely its an issue of Ink Cartridge, your ink Cartridge is defective, You need to change the ink cartridge, Your problem will be solved.
I hope this solution helps you.Don't hesitate to let me know if you still have some confusion in your mind.
Please Rate my solution as "Maximum Stars" and then give your Words of Appreciation as a Feedback.
Thank you Sir/Ma'am for taking my service and fir using FixYa

Red and green lights are flashing alternatively and colour ink cartridge has run out. How do i change the cartridge?


Flashing alternately mean waste pad full. Reset using SSC utility or Adjusment program/resetter. But, you must replace cartridge before. Turn off printer, unlock carriage lock (left side of carriage at parking position). Move carriage by hand to replacement position. Replace ink tank. Reset using the resetter.

Green light out both red lights flashing alternately


If the lights are flashing alternately then this is the Service Maintenance request by the printer. Usually this is related to the ink pads. You will need to change the ink pads and use a SSC utility.
