Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Epson R320. Had a "end of life" message so I held done the Power/Maintainence/Stop buttons for 10 secs and nothing happend. Held them again and unplugged it, plugged it back in and pressed Power and now...

The R320 is not compatible with the keypad press routine if I remember correctly so you really need a utility that can work with it.

I've had a quick check and found that the A10_IPR is capable of handling the reset for that model but for completeness here's the link for all the current info I have on the R320 in terms of resetting and fitting an external waste tank which you'll want to consider to avoid the printer flooding with waste ink.

Hope it's of some use but let me know if you're still borked after trying.

General Error Message

The "General error" message on the Epson R320 (as with most other Epson inkjets) can mean a whole host of things.

The most common ones are:

  • Printhead carriage blocked
    (something is blocking the printhead from moving left and/or right properly)
  • Cleaning/Parking pad area blocked
    (the printhead can't reach it's normal resting position)

  • Disconnected sensor
    (a ribbon cable has become disconnected or a sensor has failed so the printhead or paper location is not detectable)

  • Cartridge chip sensor issue
    (one or more of the cartridges has not been installed properly, has a "bad" chip or the sensor wires in the printhead carriage [where the cartridges sit] have been damaged)

If you can provide a bit more information on the error, possibly from the status monitor software that might give a bit more of a clue but hopefully the points above will give you a few places to look for possible causes.

Epson R320 "General Error" message - unable to clear

If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your Epson printer with no tasks in progress, then check for any piece of paper stuck in the carriage. Remove the paper carefully. If the paper tears, part of it might remain inside the paper path and damage the product.

Fix 'Carriage Jam' : Open Door, clear carriage jam,
and then press OK to continue' error message
Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.
Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side.
Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path.
Reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer.
