Epson Stylus dx8400 error message "a printer error has occurred"

As soon as you turn the printer on it declares an error "a printer error has occurred. Turn off the printer, then press on button to turn on". The led on the on button flashes every 3 seconds. Any button pressed gives the message "invalid operation"

Unplug, and replug the power cord, then try to power on, after that try to open the carriage and check for any obstructions that maybe locking or obstructing the path of the printer head from moving left to right.

I had this problem, turned out to be paper wedged too firmly in the intake tray. If you have this problem check for any obvious blockages such as the one I described.

I had this error message too, turned out that the paper feeder gears had become entangled with cat hair, we have a v long haired cat, this was preventing the paper feeder mechanism to pull the paper... wasn't even turning over...

Have you turned the printer off for a minute or 2, this will reset the sensor which threw up the error message, often works

Epson Stylus DX 8400


Hi,

It sounds like you have incompatible cartridges for your printer... Some folks have reported that disabling the Status monitor and turning the printer off/on, plus rebooting the computer can solve this but that's just something I've heard.

You may want to double check with the ink supplier that they have provided the correct cartridges for your DX rather than a CX model.

on the ink cartridges there should be a little gold chip on them if they dont have that then your printer will not recognise the ink my best bet for you is to buy cheep and reliable placement epson ink or you can buy these ink cartriges which have tubes which feed ink into these replacement cartridges and i have got one of these my self and i would recomend these to anyone
