My good-old reliable 950 has just started misbehaving and I've not got a clue whats wrong.

I am getting alternate flashing ink and paper lights on the printer, with a "General Error" message on screen.

This was during a print run of rough happy-snap shots for the family and immediately after replacing the light magenta cartridge. The screen tells me to turn everything off, leave it a few minutes and turn on again. That achieves nothing, even after leaving it off for 2 hours.

Anyone come across this before? Or do I need to get hold of my friendly soul at Epson (I always seem to get the same one).
