The red lights for ink and paper advance are blinking simotameusly. I cleaned jets and heads as recomended and also changed all the ink cartridges. I hope you can help me out. I went to the troubleshooting page on epson website but had no luck.
I managed to solve the problem, thanks to this fantastic freeware tool:
The problem has to do with the porous inkpads which are expected to overflow after a fixed number of nozzle cleaning cycles. However the problem is a software, not a hardware one. This great tool resets countes as well as ink cartridge chips.
Thank you very much FixYa all the same for trying. Too bad there are some lunatics who post unrelated topics to this forum.

Which lights are blinking red? What is the rate of the flashes? I'll assume that one of the blinking lights is the power light (just means error).
If the either of the ink cartridge lights is blinking rapidly, the cartridge may not be seated correctly. Try reseating the cartridges and then press OK to clear the error. If it is a less rapid flash it could be that the print head isn't reading the cartridge ink level correctly. Please note: refilled or non-Epson cartridges may not be read correctly due to information stored in a chip on the cartridge or in the printer.
In this case the problem may be in the print head and Epson doesn't recommend cleaning this yourself. You can replace it. (On other inkjets, pop out the cartridges, remove the print head and wipe with soft, lint-free cloths or q-tips dampened with bottled or distilled water (wring out excess water). On each section, you wipe away from the nozzles. Then wipe off the inside of the print head carriage (contacts) as well. Dry everything with a dry cloth and reassemble the printer.)
If the Check paper light is blinking check for a paper jam or the printer looking for a different paper size.
