Also on startup, sometimes get message that the ink cover is not latched. This is a false message because the cover is firmly clicked. I've updated driver, put in new cartridges, attached printer to USB cable. Nothing helps

Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review your details here.

There are a few possible causes of this issue, including a bad cartridge, internal debris/contamination, or a hardware failure (bad printhead, bad logic board, faulty sensor, etc).

What we can try are some cleaning and reset steps.

First remove all of the ink cartridges, then clean the metal electrical contacts on the back, as well as where they mate up inside the printer, using qtips and rubbing alcohol. Dry well, then reseat the cartridges.

Then reset the machine:
unplug power at the wall outlet
wait 5 minutes
press and hold the power/on button for 60+ seconds
keep holding while plugging back in, and for another 60 seconds after, then release

Let me know the results, and I'll advise further if needed.

Nathan

I did as you suggested. No change. Still 0x69
Technician: Nathan, Engineer replied 11 months ago

Thank you for trying,

unfortunately that does confirm that there is an underlying hardware defect here, meaning a bad printhead. The printer will need to be serviced or more likely replaced.
Your next step will be to file a warranty claim with epson at 562\276\4382 and they will send you a replacement printer.

My apologies for the news,

Nathan
