Hi Anna,

After doing some searching, this was the best I could come up with:

Turn off printer

Press and hold 'stop' 'maintenance' and 'power' buttons for about 10 seconds. A message will appear on the screen. power off and back on for reset

Allegedly, this is a pre-set maintenance routine epson implements as a service reminder...though I could not confirm this one way or another. I hope this works for you, as the epson website seemed to be utterly useless in finding a suitable resolution.

Good Luck,
Jem
