The Data and Pause lights are flashing. What should I do?

  • These lights indicate a carriage error with the printer. Try the following:
    1. Shut printer off
    2. Toggle the platen knob on the right side to ensure it is not stuck
    3. Hold down the Alt, Font, Load/Eject, and Pause buttons while powering the printer back on.
    4. Once all the lights on the printer come on, you can release the 4 buttons.
    5. Attempt to print again. If the error occurs again, then unit may need to be serviced by EPSON.
