How to Fix Epson Printer Error code e-01.


Unfortunately the E-01 error can indicate a hardware failure with the unit that requires repair. Either a paper sensor has failed or the printer board has gone bad, please try these hard reset steps:
Sharply unplug the printer from the wall outlet while it is still on, and disconnect it from the pc if connected there
Remove all paper from the paper feed and blow it out with compressed air a few times > With a flashlight look in the paper feed
Make sure there is no foreign object like a paper clip > Blow some compressed air inside the printer as well to remove excess dust > Very carefully double check on the far left and right sides of the printer (Where the printhead moves back and forth) to make sure no paper has jammed up in there as it often does.
Still have issues, feel free to contact Epson Printer Customer Support +1800-243-0019...

My Star TSP600 Thermal Printer is displaying a flashing Error light. Power light on, new roll of paper loaded correctly, self-test was ineffective - nothing printed. What's my next step?


i know you stated you put the paper in correctlyin the printer but if the thermal reactive side of the paper is not facing the print head the thermal paper won't print on the wrong side of the paper. it will load into the printer and seem ok but the heat on the wrong side of the paper will not react and show any writing. Can you try turning the paper over in the printer feed holder so the other side of the paper faces the print head and give it another test .

Paper not feeding through for printing - Canon MP240


something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Paper feed pulls unevenly, paper crumples in


Hello there
It worth a try doing this.
This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

Epson R220 won't print. Paper feeds through OK, print head moves as if printing but no ink comes out. Tried several sets of cartridges and this makes no difference. Cartridges are recognised fine and no...


Nothing at all? Problem with micropiezo (micro pump) at head. But you said, replaced print head. So it might just lost electricity to head (problem with board).

Restart after replace ink cartridge


my CX4800 has done the same thing. I ran the utilities dozens of times, replaced every cartridge and it feeds papers the print head moves like it's printing but nothing is imaged on the paper.
Searching the web is my last chance to fix it before i toss this 18 month old printer and never buy an epson again.

Failed to print


At the head you said 'paper thickness position'and then you seems to have ignored that and did all the other things. Is there an adjustment for paper thickness, a lever perhaps. It does seem to be with the paper feed or paper presence detection. Take a look around, is there something stuck in the paper feed track? Can you have pass a piece of paper through without it rucking up? Do these things see what happens Take a look also at www.fixyourownprinter.com
