I have an Epson Stylus 860 ink jet printer. When I attempted to print a greeting card, the paper feed stopped before it reached the print heads. The red light on the Load/Eject button came on blinking. Normally when that happens I press the Load/Eject button, the sheet feeds through and clears the paper feed path. When I pressed the Load/Eject button in this instance, the paper feed did not move. Instead, both lights on the Cleaning button came on blinking. The Light on the load/Eject button continued to blink. I have removed power from the printer, Started and restarted the computer several times. I have removed and reinstalled the printer. The three lights always come on blinking when I power up the printer. I cannot clear it. I cannot move the print cartridge carrier to replace the print cartridges.. Any suggestions to cope with the problem will be appreciated.
You can also use the control paler to reset the counter. Timing is the key to success when you reset the counter using the control panel so keep that in mind.
To reset the protection counter using the control panel (front panel)
Step 1.Turn the power on while holdint the following buttons doen. Paper feed, cleaning button. (thr paper out light will flash for 3 seconds) Step 2.While the paper out light is still flashing press the cleaning button for 10 seconds. The following leds will flash in sequence Ink out lights black and color, Paper out light. Once the printer starts to initilize the counter should be reset.
This will reset the protection counter. Again timing is the key to get the the above sequence to work. Also it is a good idea to replace or clean the absorber pads For info on the basic process try this link http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/wip.html

Re: Epson Printer Problem
Press the load/ejectbutton. The printer ejects the jammed paper and then resumes printing.If the error is not cleared, open the printer cover and remove thejammed paper. Then reload paper in the sheet feeder and press the load/eject button. The printer resumes printing.

Try this manual reset. Press and hold LOAD/EJECT+CLEANING buttons, Press POWER and hold it down until you see blinking INK OUT and PAPER OUT lights, then Release all buttons. After 2-3 seconds press and hold CLEANING button until all lights blink. Restart your printer.
Hi, this printer is "clever" in that you don't adjust the thickness setting it does it itself.
It does this based on the paper type you set in the printer properties, see the table below for the different types of paper it will accept & the setting you need to use.
For this paper
Select this paper type setting

OK this takes a bit of technique and bravery. You need a stiff piece of card such as the backing from an A4 notepad or similar. Turn the printer off and insert the card into the paper feed. You will need to align it with the pick-up roller and push it through quite hard to overcome the spring pressure. It will push out the bits of towel so open the cover and fish them out. Feed the card all the way through and out of the cover. Always try to remove paper jams in the direction of paper feed.
Hope this helps, please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.
1. Turn printer off
2. Press the left 2 buttons down and continue holding them down while turning the power button on. (all 3 are now pressed down)
3. In 3 or 4 seconds, the paper feed (jam) LED light begins to flash. (middle button)
4. Within 3 seconds as the paper feed button LED still flashes, release all 3 buttons together and immediately press down the ink cleaning button (left) and continue to hold down for about 10 - 20 seconds. As soon as the cleaning docking button LED flash, release it. That's it! You are now reset and ready to go.
NOTE: This is a strict timimg procedure and must be done fairly precisely in order for it to work. It may require several attempts for it to work for you. But...it does work! Happy printing!
