Could be the waste ink tank is full. Take a look in at www.fixyourownprinter.com. Aslso a useful download is the SSC Epson utility that carries out many 'managment' functioms and has its own forum also www.ssclg.com And last but not least - Epson customer support

This may be very simple. Turn the unit off and lift up the top. On the forward side of the unit you will find a little 'slider switch'. This is the scanner unlock - toggle the switch back and forth several times and leave in the unlock position. Turn on the printer and all will be well.

Finally figured out the problem.
1. Took waste pad out and cleaned with paper towel. Couldn't find a replacement waste pad, so needed to clean it instead.
2. Downloaded SSC Service Utility software (free) in order to "Reset the Protection Counter". This is an option within the utility.
Printer must be on when running the SSC utility.

If both lights are flashing, it means the Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink "protection" counter has exceeded its limit. The Waste Ink Pads should be replaced as soon as possible. You can overcome this problem temporarily by using the SSC utility - download from
and use it to reset the Protection Counter. This will stop the lights flashing and restore normal operation.
However, remember that eventually ink will overflow from the waste ink area and make a dreadful mess, so you must change the waste ink pads before this happens. This requires the disassembly of the printer. This is quite straightforward once you know what to do.
If you decide to have a go at replacing the ink pads yourself, post a new comment, and I will provide further help.

this means your printer waste pads are full and the printer needs to be reset for it to work again or it can just be reset
