Thread: Epson R220 printer problem (Red Flashing Lights)


Forum: PC Problems

I got 2 epson R220 printers and both of them have the same problem, When i turn the printers on there are 2 flashing lights that are flasing continuously (next to the power button), i have looked at the manual and the manual states that the printers dvd tray is open, but there is no tray attached to the printers. I also have another which is working perfectly fine, but when i turn the power button on the working one there is some movement with the ink inside and then it is ready to go,

    Epson R220 printer problem (Red Flashing Lights)

    I got 2 epson R220 printers and both of them have the same problem,

    When i turn the printers on there are 2 flashing lights that are flasing continuously (next to the power button), i have looked at the manual and the manual states that the printers dvd tray is open, but there is no tray attached to the printers.

    I also have another which is working perfectly fine, but when i turn the power button on the working one there is some movement with the ink inside and then it is ready to go, where as the not working printers there is no movement just the 2 red light flashing. there is ink already installed in the printers.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanx in advance

    Update: The epson technicians have confirmed that there is a fault with the printer and providing i have proof of purchase that the item is under 1 years old this would be covered under there warranty. Unfortunately my receipt has been misplaced so i would appreciate it if some1 can forward me a copy, a fleabay receipt would also be valid..

    Thanx in advance

    every so often epson printers don't work due to needing a service when mine went down my partner ( aka taffy ) found how to do the service himself from info on here maybe if you do a search you can find it I would ask him but he's not it at the mo and I don't know much about this site yet.
