Why is my Epson printer blinking red?
Most of the time, the flashing red light indicates that you are running low on paper. If the paper is not running low, make sure that the roll is pushed all the way to the back of the printer.
Why does my Epson printer not recognize ink?
Make sure that the cartridges are in the correct slots. Check the position using the coloured label guide, located on the plastic above the ink cartridge holder. Check that the plastic film on the bottom of the cartridge has been pierced. If it isn’t pierced, reinstall the ink cartridge into the printer.
