Customer Question

AN E-01 printer problem on Epson NX420.

Customer: I watched a video and played with a white plastic piece then pushed it back in as the video said. I am still getting a horrible noise and red flashing Printer Error has occurred and to turn off machine.
JA: Is there anything else the Printer Technician should be aware of?
Customer: Only that an eleven year old probably did this damage. He will pay for it later!!!!!

Hi there,

E-01 indicates that there is likely a paper jam somewhere.

Try manually pushing a piece of stiff card through the paper slot and right through the printer whilst it is powered off, to help move any small fragments of paper. Then try printing again. Let me know if that helps?
