Epson R200 problem

I've done something to my printer. I tried to interrupt and print and now I've got the ink and paper lights flashing alternately.

I've cancelled all documents, restarted the computer, unplugged all leads, turned the printer off and on again but it still flashes.

Any ideas please?

Make sure the CD/DVD flap is closed properly and check the position of the printer cartridge carriage.

If it's not returned fully to it's normal position, find out what the obstruction is. (jammed paper for example).

Thanks, tried those two things as you suggest, still flashing :(

Running a printer operation check

If you are unable to determine the source of the problem, performing a printer operation check can help you determine whether the problem comes from the printer or the computer.

To print a printer operation check page, follow these steps.

1. Make sure both the printer and computer are turned off.

2. Disconnect the cable from the printer's interface connector, then turn on the printer.

3. Make sure that A4 or Letter size plain paper is loaded in the sheet feeder, the CD/DVD tray is not inserted into the printer, and the CD/DVD guide is closed.

4. Hold down the paper button and press the power button to turn on the printer. Release only the power button. After the printer starts the operation check, release the paper button.

This will run a nozzle check. If it's OK, there's nothing wrong with the printer and you should look for a software problem.
