    Hi,
    I have 2 Epson R200 printers, 1 of which I keep as a spare. I haven't used the printer for about a week and when I switched on the printer went through it's normal cycle but then the 2 red lights flashed and the printer wont go any further. I've tried everything I can including holding down different combinations of the 3 buttons but I still get the same result!
    I then got out my spare Epson R200 and I can't even get it to switch on, the carriage seems to be locked as it will not move at all manually, it's just my luck that both printers decide to go awol together. Another problem is that I live in Tenerife so there isn't any service people I can turn to.

    Help please,

    Dave

    Don't know about the first one but you might
    check the user manual for the new one.
    Epson printers usually ship with plastic safety
    locks in place that need to be removed before using the printer.

    Hi,
    Forgot to mention I also used the second one about 2 months ago and only mothballed it until I got time to clean the heads.
