I do not seem to be getting an answer why?
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.
To remove the yellow strip, just remove the cartridge from the printer by following this process.Open the lid of the printer. Press the STOP button located on the panel. This will move the tay in the cartridge replacement position. Now press STOP once again. Remove the cartridge which had yellow strip still there and place it again inside the tray once you take out the yellow strip.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Please rate the chat POSITIVELY so that I can get credited for my answer.

the only happening is the red light which tells e something is wrong, I will check if any other cartridges are out of ink
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.
Yes the red led blinks when any of the cartridge is empty. When you open the lid and the tray moves. There is an arrow pointing towards the cartridge which is empty. Check if this is the issue.

There is a counter on Epson printers which stops the printing once it reaches a certain count. You can try resetting it. There are many free software available on the internet.
