Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.
Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.
Unfortunately this error indicates a hardware problem,
specifically, it is the result of a bad printhead (or the logic board that controls it), is considered a "fatal error" on these printers (epson heads are not serviceable).
The only thing you can try in this case is to reset the machine:
unplug power at the wall outletwait 5 minutespress and hold the power/on button for 60+ secondskeep holding while plugging back in, and for another 60 seconds after, then release
If still on change, it confirms an internal fault, which requires service.
You should still be under the epson 1 year warranty, and can file a warranty claim to have them repair (replace) it.
Let me know how the reset goes, and I'll help with contact info to file a warranty claim at that point if needed.
Best regards, ***** ***** for the news,
I am an independent technician and I've spent my personal time, unpaid, in an effort to assist with the question for which you solicited my services. This site works on the honor system, and to that end, I have prioritized working with you ahead of other paying customers.
Although you’ve already paid your fee to the site, I am only compensated for my efforts when customers such as yourself leave positive feedback for my work. I apologize this is not the outcome you had hoped for, though this is really beyond either of our control. I do hope you’ll consider leaving a 5 star rating for me, rather than “shoot the messenger”, so that I may get credit for my time spent in good faith to answer your question accurately. Rating 1 or 2, or not rating at all, does not produce a refund, it only penalizes me for trying to help.
Do you need more help with this?
