This resolution, the only working one I could find for the generic "Printer Error" message, was posted by FixYa user willyinfcva:

"I downloaded the Epson CX5400 manual from 2manuals.com, and the remedies for the printer error light were plain and fell into 5 categories; print or carriage motor ohms out of spec (not likely), a latch holding the paper eject mechanism not locked down, or one of the sensors for head or paper position not functioning properly. Confident with this new information, I aerodusted both sensors, cleaned a smudge off the CR alignment strip behind the head carriage, and also reseated the head for good luck, as I'd had it out before. I ran a test and ... it worked!"

Red light flashing


The red light is indication there is an error. Reset does not solve the problem. First solve the problem, like close all doors, or replace cartridges, then try to reset by switching off and unplug from the mains. Then reinsert the mains plug and switch on again.
If the red light comes back, you did not solve the problem. Read the manual, or give more details, so we can help.

Tally 2250 gives error +0017


The error message given by the 2250 would be longer than given in the question. The whole error message gives an indication of what might be causing the problem. Some things you may wish to check include; Check the print head is free to move and is not jammed Check the carriage shaft is clean and free from any sort of lubricant Check the timing strip to ensure this is in possition and is not dirty or warn Check the paper path to ensure the paper is free to feed through the printer.

finally you can try a reset on the macj\hine using the # and the number 6 buttons(holding them down and then plugging in the power cord at the back of the machine).If it still gives the same error..try the same with the # and 9...same problem comes up....service the printer

Red light error


OFF the printer.open the top cover whole scanner unit .then look at the black base where usually cartridge moves when the printer is ON when you give printouts..press that black base and it will move little bit down .that whole black base comes little bit up due to some reason and when the cartridge holder moves from left to right for its internal allignments/adjustments it clashes that part somewhere and make such noices.and gives the service error..just press that whole 7- 8 inches base where the cartridge moves slowly ,carefully and firmly.then ON the printer and check.do it again if it does not becomes ok after first time.

rate the solution if it helps
thanks.

Hp 2355 all in one error message


reset to factory defaults, also check the whole printer for paper jams. A paper jam can often casue smaller pieces to get stuck in gears or rollers. The message about opening and closing the lid is how the printer knows you went in to check it and closeing it triggers it to try again. If thers still a jam it will keep giving the message. The fist jam was caused by something, check and make sure there isnt any pieces of plastic broken off inside. If it has a rear access panel, check there also.
