I am on my second printer with the error. Epson explained it is a motherboard failure. The error is not caused by a PC or the software on it. Instead, this is a printer hardware failure.

After exchanging the printer, the replacement printer has now dies from the same error. The problem starts as blurry printing and progresses to the full hardware failure. Once the Hardware fails and you get the error code, there is nothing an end user can do. The motherboard needs to be replaced.

My printers were working fine up until I swapped out the factory cartridges that shipped with the printer. In both of my cases, there were no issues or symptoms until I started using the Epson XL cartridges. As soon as I installed those, the symptoms started to show. Within a couple of months after swapping in the XL cartridges, the motherboard dies.

Options:
1) Call Epson and complain, make them log the details even if it is out of warranty. This helps establish the pattern and knowledge of the issue.
2) Swap printer if under warranty. They may want a credit card to charge in case they do not receive the bad printer back. Just resend it in the box the replacement came in. Epson supplies shipping labels and covers the shipping costs.

It may be due to the corner of the paper is bend or not exactly parallel.

Ink levels are set by chips on the ink carts. You may be able to reset the chips with a "chip resetter", but that's not really recommended. Get refillable carts with automatic resetting chips...

If you are lucky, the 0xF4 error indicates a foreign object (a scrap of paper) in the gears. That would translate to PF driver mechanism overload. Another cause would be a contaminated encoder scale. Fixing either of these will require you to disassemble the printer. Here are some tips for taking apart the printer: https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Repairing+EPSON+B-510DN+Error+0xF2+or+0xF3/11767 .

However, the 0xF4 error could mean that the encoder board or the motor have failed. These errors can only be fixed by a service technician. If your printer is under warranty, you should call for service. Otherwise decide if you want to risk taking it apart and finding that you can't fix this error. It may be cheaper to replace the unit.

I hope this helps.

Two places to check and make changes. One is on the printer menu itself. Hit menu and navigate to print options. The second will be on your computer. When you go to print something a menu will pop up for a printer selection. It will also have an advanced button. Hit that and it will get you into an area to change the printing in multiple ways.

Turn the printer unit ON
2. Pull the power plug from the back side of it
3. wait 1 min
4. Plug unit back in
5. wait 3 full minutes
6. try to print does the error still exist? If yes continue below

Locate one piece of CARD STOCK paper and manually feed it up against the feed assembly and into the feed.Must be CARD STOCK PAPER, regular paper will not work. the idea is too dislodge any pieces of paper that may be broken off inside the rollers, and not visible to the eye. Repeat this process until the error goes away.

If you continue to experience problems, PLEASE RESPOND TO ME
