Customer: replied 1 year ago.
do I have to pay another 39 after the one I just paid if I use Remote Assistance?
Expert:  Sudipto replied 1 year ago.

Yes, remote assistance is an additional service, so the fee is also extra for that. But, as you seem to be a subscriber the charge will be deducted from the monthly charge and no extra charge will be deducted from your card.

Expert:  Sudipto replied 1 year ago.

If you are not ready to give the information, which is needed to solve the problem then, it is not possible to solve the problem, actually, you are not understanding that this is a not a shop and I cannot see your printer. I have to work on your problem completely based on the information you will provide.

Expert:  Robert M. replied 1 year ago.

if the printer died in the middle of a firmware update, you know have a large paper weight.

to get the firmware updated again you need a working version of the firmware on the printer which of course you no longer have.

Usually printer companies are pretty good at getting it fixed for you if you tell them that their own firmware update ruined it. That makes them liable. You might have to ask for supervisors and be very insistent that it is THEIR responsibility if their own update ruined the printer. But usually you can at least get a credit toward a new epson if not this one repaired or replaced. You can call them at 1(###) ###-####/p>
