Hello from Alaska, I am new to the list, and enjoy learning about printing on my Epson photoEX wide printer. I ran into a problem the other day maybe someone here may know how to fix. I was priming a new cartridge, went to make a confirmation test page and suddenly all the lights flash. I read somewhere the printer will go into this mode when the pads are near saturation from cleaning cycles, so I removed the bottom tray and rinsed out the four pads, letting them dry overnight. Reinstalled easily, after also cleaning the little cleaning station as well. Everything went back together perfectly. Turned on power, and the lights remain blinking on/off. Obviously, I have to do a factory reset. That's the problem. How do I do this? I cannot find the procedure searching the web. I have had the best luck holding the paperfeed and ink buttons while turning on the power, wait until the paper light blinks, then let up both buttons and immediately press and hold the paperfeed button. The lights will flash differently and then I hit the power switch to off. Turning it on, it gives a steady green light and will print, but after printing when the printhead returns to the left side to stop, all the lights flash again. My reset procedure isn't staying stuck! Larry - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short. Use accurate subject lines. http://www.leben.com/lists for list instructions.
