Usually the errors are related with the cartridges being empty or having another issue ..or a paper jam is detected..So check it for paper jam ..than check the cartridges..(if you didnt used it in a long time ..they may be dry ..and this model do not support well refilled so need to be changed) ..after checking all that ..try to reset the printer ... Im not sure about the procedure ..but try first to power reset it ..While it is on ...remove the power cable and after a few minutes..insert it back ..than press the power button and keep it pressed for 15 seconds..and see whats going on ..On the net I didnt found a reset procedure ..but it may be available if you consult the support site..
you may need to software reset you epson printer, some epson printer has a print counter, once you have used your allowable print, it goes into errors mode, flashing the on/off button light..check also for jamb paper inside..
Make sure you check the paper path thoroughly. Even a small piece of paper can obstruct a sensor and keep it from moving. Be sure to open the rear door and check the fuser sensor as well. If you still cannot find any obstruction or stuck sensor(s), perform a cold reset as follows:
Turn off the printer.
Press and hold the Go button.
Turn the printer on, and continue to hold the Go button for at least 5 seconds, but not longer than 15 seconds. During this process, the Attention LED turns on.
Release the Go button.
If both the Attention and the Ready LEDs turn on before you release the Go button, you must start the procedure again with step 1. The printer’s LEDs begin cycling. The cold-reset process runs until completion, and the printer returns to the ready state.
Turn the printer off. Press down the ink button and the paper button at the same time and turn the printer on (while keeping them pressed down) After a second or two, the red paper light should start flashing. Immediately release the buttons and press and hold the paper button again. Keep the paper button down for about ten seconds and release. After a second or two, the printer should go back to it's normal state. Please try this and reply me for further doubts. Regards, Nandini.
You could try a partial reset of the printer
Unplug the power cord
Reconnect power cord
When lights are flashing, press & hold On/Resume and PaperSize buttons
When only the On/Resume light is flashing, release both buttons
When On/Resume light is steady, reset is completed
One of two things.
1. When the jam occured there may have been a small piece of paper torn off on a sensor.
2. And I think this is more likley. One of the sensor actuators has fallen off or is stuck causing the sensor to think there is still paper in the machine.
Take your time and examine the paper path carefully.
The actuators are black plastic pieces about an inch long hanging down into the paper path.
