Hi there,
The problem may be because too many head cleaning cycles were ran and the sponges are now full.

Why the green light is off but the paper and ink red light flashing nonstop


Can not answer without more information. What brand of printer?
Are the paper/ink lights flashing alternately?

If your answers are, "Epson" and "yes, alternately", then the model number will help. Or, google "epson waste ink pad reset" for how to fix.

* RED paper light is On- If the CD/DVD try guide is open, close the CD/DVD tray guide, load paper, then press the paper button. Your paper ran out or multiple sheets loaded at the same time . Load paper and press the paper butoon to resume printing.
* RED paper light flashes- Paper is jammed in the printer. Press the paper button to eject the jammed paper. If the light is still flashing , open the cover and remove all paper, including any jammed or torn pieces. Then reload paper and press the paper button to continue printing.
* RED Ink Light Flashes - One or more cartridges are low on ink. Check the message that appears on your screen to determine which cartridge is low, or follow the instructions in " Checking the Ink Supply". Make sure you have a replacement cartridge.
* RED Ink Light is ON- One or more cartridges are out of ink or not installed. If you have just installed a new cartridge, it may be incomaptible with the printer or incorrectly installed. Reinstall it or replace it with the correct cartridge

I replaced the blue catridge and now both red


If the red lights are flashing simultaneously, it means that there is something blocking the printhead from moving. check if all inks are installed properly and the ink carriage cover is closed tight. If both red lights are flashing alternately,it means that the waste ink pad is full and needs to be replaced. This part is not user replaceable so you need to take in the printer for service.

R200 both red lights flashing


if both red lights are flashing alternately your printer has been locked this is due to full waste ink pads. you need to have them replaced either at your local service centre or do it yourself then you need a scss reset utility to reset your printer you can get a free one of these on the net
If your lights are flashing continuously look to see if you have any outstanding documents in your print queue and delete them

Flash feed paper & ink light my epson r1800 printer


Do you mean that the paper light flashes at the same time as the ink light or do they flash alternately (ie: paper on, ink off -> paper off, ink on)?

If so the waste ink pads are full and you need to do the following:

1. Reset the waste ink counter:
Grab the tool linked from the wasteink.co.uk site (see bottom).

2. Redirect your waste ink into an external tank OR replace your waste ink pads.. (external tank is easier).

Instructions for the R1800 are available from this site



If the lights are doing something different, please post again with detailed information about how they flash and I can what else it might mean.

Hope that helps.
