The red lights on the ink and the paper keep flashing back and forth and the printer will not work. I finally got an "internal error"?? is there anything I can do without taking it in to be workded on? There are no paper jams, or does no good to turn it off and back on.

Here's what you need to do. Reset the printer by pressing and holding the power button 5-10 seconds. It should turn off. Unplug it from the power outlet and from the computer. Do a power cycle by pressing the power button for 5 seconds (connections should still be disconnected during this process). Plug it back in to the power source and the computer. Turn it on.

Restart the computer. After restarting, test print. It should work. I have tried it a lot of times.

Lockup


You need to do some cleaning on this printer, because that causes it not to work , you can take the parts off from the printer and use alcohol to clean the dirty parts of the printer..

Hope that helps.............

What is the flash pattern?

If the red paper light and the red ink light are blinking in an alternating pattern, then you may have a foreign object or piece of paper blocking the movement of the print head. Turn off the printer, open the printer and look for anything in the printhead path. Remove anything that doesn't belong. Some printers have a strip that the print head travels across that can sometimes come out of position. This can be repositioned by moving it up and down as well as forward and back to align in a guide on the back of the print head.

After clearing the obstruction, close the printer and turn it back on. If the error persists, then the unit needs service.

If the red paper light and the red ink light are blinking together and the green power light is off, then the printer has an internal error. Turn it off and then back on. If the error persists, the unit needs service.

One internal error could be the waste ink absorber is full. These pads are below the printhead and absorb ink during cleaning cycles. To reach them is messy and takes disassembling the printer from the top. This may include removing the print head. Pull the pads, blot the ink off them and the places where they fit in the printer. Run clean water over the pads until the water remains clear. Dry the pads (use a hair dryer to speed the process). Then reassemble the printer.

Next navigate to http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/InkPadsForm.jsp and fill in the model and serial number of the printer (as well as the other required information). You will get a link to download a reset utility for Windows. Run this tool to solve the error. Do not run this utility until the pads are replaced or cleaned; waste ink will get everywhere inside the printer and over your documents.

I hope this helps.

I keep getting a service error B200, and the lights flash green and orange alternately. How can I fix this?


Try keeping the paper only in the bottom tray (there's a tray in the bottom) Try pulling any paper out of the top and just close that top tray. Open up the head so that u can see the ink cartridges and turn the printer on and off and maybe it will center itself again. If it's still not working (even if lights aren't red and print head wont align in the center) try manually moving the head back and forth like 18 times so you can lubricate that rail in the back that's holding it. After that, re-turn it off and on again.

Epson Stylus Photo 1270. All lights flashing. Whats wrong and how can I fix it?


Hi Guys
I had the same problem with all lights flashing nothing working, happened after a panic power shut down. As with peter after the paper button was released, printer lit up like a christmas tree again. I played around with the button combinations and found that holding down the ink button instead of the flashing paper button cleared the problem. Great tip guys saved me a lot of money. cheers me dears clive.

Blinking both the ink botton ligths and the botton paper


I just today threw away my R220. If your 2 red lights are going and the power light is off, then your printer has died. It just happened to me. It sucks, but there is no way to fix it.
