Aha and your printer is not functioning right now isnt it, or it is still operational, either way that error must be solve or you will never use your printer. this error means that your pump motor is near end about 5% of its life is left. here is the sure solution for your prob. turn off your printer then press the left, down arrow and enter simultaneously then power on the printer. inside initialize the sponge and cleaner then turn off and on your printer. note: you will have to replace your pump cap assy. if it is already poor in cleaning otherwise your printhead will suffer.

Sadly this is a serious error requiring a replacement Laser Unit - if you are lucky. It may also be a system board error that is falsely reporting the error.

This printer is likely to be beyond economical repair.

Epson Acculaser CX11NF Error 'Service Req E527'

Hi.. To fix the E527 error, close the front panel (cover A) and open the top cover (cover B). With the photoconductor unit removed, the toner carousel will rotate. It only rotates if cover A is closed all the way. You can easily rotate the carousel to a position where you can remove/reinstall the toner cartridge if stuck.
