Compressed air will damage the print head. You really should not be on this or any forum giving advice.

Re: Epson Stylus Photo R230(2 red indicator blinking) by Anonymous (2/27/09 10:58 PM) reply+1 + / -
Look inside the printer above the carriage guide shaft. You will see a plasyic tape with lines on it. Make sure that is clean. You will need to move the carrige to clean the part where the carriage parks. You can clean it with a damp paper towel.

Anything can cause that error.

Re: Epson Stylus Photo R230(2 red indicator blinking) by Anonymous (2/28/09 10:00 AM) reply + / -
Anything can cause that error. A motor, Sensor, mainboard. Turn it off for a few hours and if it still acts up. Which it probably will. I would just replace it if you can afford to.

If you replace the printer for can sell the old one for a "Parts or repair" printer on eBay. Besure you say it is not working if you do list it.

how can i fix it?


Epson Stylus Photo R230(2 red indicator blinking) by Vaibhav Singh (2/24/10 3:09 AM) reply+1 + / -
Hi Aziz,
You can fix the problem by pressing all the keys on the printer panel ( ink, paper, power) simultaneously for 12 seconds.

You may respond further if it does works or not.
Be sure your printer model is Epson R230.

And it reports " General Maintenance Error"

Also try to some how absorb the extra ink below cradle rest pads.
Dont bother for it however.

This was awsome guys. The SSC utility works fine. When i had those lights blinking i was shocked cus in india the printer is very expensive and so is the CISS ink system. but this utility realy works. ppl dont have to worry all this printer needs is special care from dust and some small take cares. 1. use sone tissue paper and gently press on the swab that is below carriage that sucks the ink out that helps a lot and people i mean gently. 2 with a little effort you can take out the side flaps of the printer and then open up the plate at the back of R230 and dril a small hole in that plate, inside the place where you took out that plate is a plastic pipe take it out from that hole u made and replace the plastic cap and screw it. now go to a chemist shop and buy an IV set wth some effort you can attach that IV line to the rubber pipe comming out of the printer and the other end of the IV line connect it to a bottle and your printer keeps clean and healthy.
if you have probs email me at raikamaljit@gmail and i will provide pics to this solution

use ssc utility step by step and before that move the cartridge cradle slowly so that the spong beneath it is explosed, now put a small ball made of tissue paper on the song and soak the ink. do it many times with many new made tissue balls and then again use the ssc utility ... i hope it helps. the SSC utility will help for sure.

Re: Epson Stylus Photo R230(2 red indicator blinking) by Anonymous (5/28/10 4:51 AM) reply + / -
Yes, Thats right people dont read the solution and just keep on asking for solutions. Its the SSC utility that realy works you just have to use a lil brain and experiment with the utility and it will surely help you. The printer R230 needs special care. Its not a normal inkjet or lazer kinda printer but it has jets that print and pass on the ink. jets that are realy small and need to be taken good care that people dont do. Thats what i have learnt with my experience with the R230. You have to print a print out every third day (e.g. make small boxes on word document with all the 6 coloures that the printer uses) and take care from dust and dirt. All you need to remember is that the ink dries very fast specialy in summer times. So people use the SSC utility and it realy works. And yes please keep the soaking part of the printer that is below the printing jet with tissue paper balls gently pressed on it and left for some time to soak the waste ink.
I hope it helps
God bless you
Regards
Kamal

Re: Epson Stylus Photo R230(2 red indicator blinking) by printerrepairpros (6/5/11 10:13 AM) reply + / -
abdus, the error is dependent upon which lights are blinking and whether they are blinking together or alternating. If the paper and ink lights are blinking quickly together either the carriage is not able to move or the paper feed motor is stuck. If these light are blinking alternatively, the waste ink pads should be replaced or cleaned and the counter reset. If the paper light blinks twice and the ink light blinks quickly, there are issues with the CD guide being open. Hope this helps.
