Sounds like it's the old "Service required - waste ink tank replacement" message to me.

If the SSC utility isn't working then I'd take a look to see if somewhere like manuals4u.com can't help with the official adjustment utility.

You need to be sure you have installed an external waste ink tank or replaced the pads first though or you'll just end up flooding the printer in the long run.

Epson R220 service required "fix"!!!

I have just encountered the problem you all seem to be having with my epson R220, both red lights flash and it will not do anything !
I followed advice to download a service programme SSC but it wouldnt work then I found out only the latest version supports this model and downloaded that SSC 4.1, however that didnt work till I discovered you have to uninstall the other one if you had it first and then install the new one, set the printer type to your model then close and it will apear in the system tray , right click and reset chip its easy..
remember your pads will now overflow at some point !!!

sory for being a bit long winded but I had difficulty understanding some of the info I got and thought it best to explain...

hope this works for you ally......... :roll:

Just so you all know. I went through this same problem today. I'm glad I found your thread. After un-installing, re-installing, unplugging, resetting, etc..I decided to call Epson's customer service number.

First of all, it's a long-distance number. Secondly I learned that the two constantly blinking error lights, when accompanied by the green power light not being lit means that the printer itself has suffered an "internal hardware error". Basically: it's dead.

They offered me the number of the nearest service center, and invited me to their loyalty page of their website to purchase another printer at a discount, but since my printer is over 12 months old (barely), I'm basically S.O.L.

So, friends: 2 blinking red lights, no green light? Rest in Peace.

HELLO,
Printers made with the same purposes but different capacities and features, if you will buy a printers you should look in their capacities made, it has also limitations.
