How to reset a Epson Pro XL

Hi there,
my Pro XL refuses to do anything. All panel lights are flashing. Does anyone know how to reset it with pushing a certain panel-buttons combination?

Thank you for your help.

Bye, urf.
Turn the printer on while holding down the Alt, Font, Load/Eject, Pause buttons. And it should reset.

No my almost retired "work-horse" has to do another ten years of printing *g*

Kind Regards from South-Germany, uli.

Urf...Just to let you know: A Service Error where all LED's/Lights are blinking at the same time, or where you get an "Unknown Error Message", or a "General Error Message", is normally a Maintenance Request Error. The maintenance request error is actually a Waste Ink Ink Pad Error and normally your remedy is to replace the Waste Ink Pad/Pads with a new one/ones and then reset the Internal Waste Ink Pad Counter. If you just reset the counter and don't replace the pads, then your printers old pads can eventually overflow and that normally results in ink leaking out the bottom of your printer. Some people actually wash the ink out of the old pads and then dry them out and simply reinstall them back into their printer. The choice on what to actually do, is yours to make...Denny Conway...P.S.
