Hi, I have an Epson1290 which has been working fine for last three years but now I get a solid red error light after powerup. The printer goes through it cleaning motions and then gets to this state. I have been through therr troubleshooting with Epson online but still no joy. The only thing I can thing of is that I refill the original cartridges and that the chip is causing the prob.

How long have you been using the chip? They do have a finite life so I think you need to obtain a new one. I assume you reprogram it after each refill. What refill kit do you use?

Could be the battery is flat in the chip setter
