Question about Epson Stylus C86 InkJet Printer
Probably too late to be of much help but in case you're still hoping for an answer this article describes how to fit an external waste ink kit to your C86.
Not too hard and well worth doing as the C86 is still a pretty good printer as I've discovered having resurrected one of my old units.

Please see your user manual for the meaning of the various light combinations, or if you don't have one, see:
and look at "Diagnosing Printer Problems".
BOBDOYLE - can you confirm which red light is flashing? If it is the ink light, see the instructions for changing ink cartridges. If it is the paper jam light, check for a paper jam. If you still cannot fix it, come back with a new comment giving any further information.
If this advice was helpful, please rate it.

The red middle light is the paper feed indicator. If it is on, it means the paper feed is (or the computer thinks it is) jammed. Remove all paper from the hopper and make sure all bits of paper are removed from the feed mechanism. Press the paper feed button (the middle one) a few times during this process to try to feed through any jammed pieces. If this doesn't work, you have an internal jam or broken feed system, or your main board has gone haywire.
Any further investigation requires you to remove the printer top cover, which you may or may not feel like tackling. If you don't, take your printer to a technician, or sell it on E-Bay for what you can get. If you do, post a new comment to this effect and I will provide a tutorial on removing the top cover. It's not difficult if you know how.
