Hi when the power button flashes red if you hold down the little round white button under the dvd tray and keep holding it down then press the open button for dvd then it will flash a number of lights write this down. it will be flashing 1 2 3 or 4 lights so write it down then hold down the white button again and press the draw open button again and write down how many again. do this 4 times all together and tell me what code it has given you then i can tell you exactly what the problem is
so for instance you hold down the little white wireless button and keep holding it down then press the open button for the dvd tray and say 4 lights are flashin so write down 4 then hold white button down again and press open button again it may flash 4 again then do it again and it may flash 2 lights then again and it may flash 2 again
when you have gotten these 4 codes post me a message and tell me exactly what they tell you and in the correct order so it may look like this 4 lights flashing 2 lights flashing 1 light flashing 2 lights flashing
if you look at where the button is where you turn it on well you have the green light in the middle well around this is four outer lights that light up red their are 4 of these 2 at the top and 2 at the bottom either side of the green light, their the ones that flash green when its spinning rounf with green lights so write this code down then ill be able to tell you exactly what the fault is ok

I had the flashing lights (Epson R1800) too. Both the ink
and paper flashed rapidly at the same time.
After intense searching on the net, I tried just about
everything. SSC service utility did
Nothing. Turning printer off and on also didn’t help.
Turning printer off then pressing the paper and ink buttons,
then turning power on, then waiting for both lights to flash, releasing them
and pressing the ink button for 10 seconds also didn’t help.
After days of this I got frustrated, packed the POS back
into the box and put it up for sale
On Craigslist. No takers… I was about to put it out to the
curb ($540 printer sat in the box for almost a year) but decided to do one last google and found
someone talking about the print head moving along the rail.
Suggestion was to turn printer off and see if print head
traveled freely back and forth. Ok I thought, Pulled the printer back out of
the box and set it up again. Reinstalled software and turned it on. Red lights
flashing again! Ok, press the ink button to move head to home, then turn
printer off. Then I tried to move head along rail. It moved freely a couple of
inches to the left then stopped like something was blocking it.
Took my flashlight out and could not see anything in the way
so pushed down on the cartridge cover and heard a “click”….. Duh! The freakin’
cover was not closed! Now the head would move left and right all the way so I
turned the printer on and to my amazement NO more flashing red lights! I was
both thrilled and depressed (at my stupidity) for not seeing this earlier.
I will post this everywhere I can to remind people that the cartridge
cover is the FIRST thing you should check upon seeing both red lights flashing
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.
The owners manual says that if the red light is flashing, it is an indicator that it is ready to be turned on (use remote or onboard on button); flashing red & green - too high temperature inside, the unit is overheated. Check and clean the air filters; If the red light is steady, abnormal condition and you have to call for service.
A copy of your manual is available at
Hope this be of some help. Pls post again how things turn up. good luck and kind regards.
