Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

It is probably a corruption in the printing settings. First we can reset your printing system and see if it works or not.

  1. Go to System Preferences from the Apple menu or from the Dock.
  2. Open Printers and Scanners or Print and Scan
  3. Hold down control and click (or Right click) on list of printers on the left side of the window, then choose "Reset printing system" from the contextual menu (or hold down Option key and click - button at bottom left and click Reset Printing System)

After resetting, your Printer will disappear from the list. Click the + button in there (in left corner) and add it back

Don't add if it appears under Nearby Printers. Instead, click Add Printer. Then add it and make sure the "Use" or "Software" is set for Epson instead of AirPrint or Secure AirPrint

Check if it is printing ok now.

Please let me know if that didn't work, so I will continue to help you until we fix the problem
