ERROR 55 - Internal Communication Problem

  1. On IIISi/4Si Printers this is due to the DC controller not receiving the proper information upon startup. Check the connectors on the DC controller and power supply. If you don't hear the motor immediately and you don't have a paper jam, change the power supply.

I would purchase a replacement printer as you can get a better one for 40$. Time is money and not worth wasting any more time and money on the printer. Let me know if you need any more assistance locating a replacement or any other information. Please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.
Thanks,
Lee

Try taking out the catridges, any paper in ther printer(check for paper jam), and unplug everything including the power
wait about 30 seconds, plug the power in, but nothing else. if it works, put one thing back in at a time, until it stops working. Post back if that helps.
Also, what happened before this started happening?

Try unplugging power cable for ten minutes and power cycling the printer, sometimes this works.

Power light, Paper light, and both Ink out lights are all flashing

An unknown printer error has occurred. Turn the printer off, disconnect the interface cable and turn the printer back on. If error disappears, turn the printer off, reconnect the interface cable and turn the printer back on. If error continues then the printer is already having a hardware issue. If printer returns the normal the issue is resolved.

Disconnect printer from computer

Try powering down the computer for five minutes and takek all cartidges out then put it back in, then power it back ON and check if you can now print already. If still not working try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer software...

Problem with colour printing. Orange and green


Wow, that's a really old EPSON printer. The life expectancy of a EPSON printer is just three years, after that, the printer wouldn't work because of the clogged permanent printing head. The authorized service center is unable to repair it because the spares are no longer supplied.
Throw it to a recycling center.
