My Epson Artisan 835 (have not used for several months)

Customer Question
My Epson Artisan 835...

My Epson Artisan 835 (have not used for several months) starts up with a printing error. Would replacing the ink help.

Technician's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Epson is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Artisan 835. I would guess over three years.

Technician's Assistant: What kind of computer are you printing from (Mac or PC)? What Operating System (OS) are you running?

I am using a PC

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

I just powered it up to print DVD. I am using a PC with Windows 10

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

I believe thats everything

Okay, I understand your concern Turn printer OFF. Unplug the power cable from wall outlet for 5 minutes. Power ON the printer again. and see if the error has gone let me know if it works if it does not we will try alternate steps.

Okay,When a printer error occurs, this points to a mechanical error. Sometimes the printer MUST go to service to replace a part BUT also you can check for foreign objects and blow the printer out using compressed air which can be purchased by the can at Best Buy or equivalent store in your area. Also remove the inks and clean everything VERY well with cotton swabs and rubbing alcohol. The goal is to clean to make sure there is not anything stuck inside the machine. It could be a very small piece of paper or even a staple that has fallen inside.please let me know and try to follow this and if it does not work may be you need to take your printer out for service.
