May I know if the power light turns on or not if not please follow the below steps:

1.Turn off the printer and check the power cord connections between the printer and the electrical outlet. Then turn the printer back on.

2.Make sure that the switch is turned on or plug another electrical device into the outlet to check whether the outlet is operating properly.

Let me know what happens.

I have checked connections, all OK. But strangely, when I switch on the printer at the beginning of the day it will print, but only once then it reverts to "Communication error." I do not use Epson ink.

May I know how your printer is connected to your computer is it through WiFi or USB cable?
