Printer blinking red and showing letter E


Error description:

The Attention (red) light is blinking. There are six possible causes that will display the Attention light pattern:

-Paper out
-Door open
-Print cartridge missing
-Paper jam
-Paper sensor jammed
-Duplexer error

Solution :
After the cause of the problem has been addressed, pressing GO will cause the printer to attempt to recover from the cause of the error. If the printer is unsuccessful, it will continue to display the Attention message until the cause is remedied.

Pressing JOB CANCEL will cancel the print job and the printer will return to the Ready state (Ready light on) unless there is a paper jam still in the printer or the print cartridge is not in the printer.

Red light stays on... wont print wont pick up paper... cleaned as much as I could...


There are a lot of conditions that cause the red light to come on. These include toner cartridge empty, paper jam, waste toner tank full, etc. The only good way of determining the printer fault is to check the smart panel software on your computer. It will tell you what the printer is experiencing.

If the printer can't pick up the paper, check the condition of the paper pickup roller. It is located in the back, and above the paper tray. Often it get dirty and cleaning it with a damp cloth helps it to pick up paper better. Hope this helps you.

Let's Try first if it can print without using your computer just to check if printer is working fine by itself.
step1
Make sure its not connected to the computer and there is paper loaded on the printer. Turn off printer, press and hold paper button (middle button) then press and release the power button (right button). If you can see a flashing green light release your hold on the paper button.
If it prints by itself good go to step 2 if not check what lights do you see. Solid red light on ink light (tear drop button) means one or more inks is empty. Epson printer will not print if one or more ink is empty.
step2
Check if computer can detect printer goto start/control panel/systems/ click on hardware tab and click on device manager
On device manager click on Universal Serial Bus controllers press on the "+" sign check if there is USB printing support on it
Check if there is a mark (ie. ?, !, red x mark). If none good there is no conflicts. If there is a mark right click on USB printing support and click on update driver and install recommended

Paper sent through without printing


You should try cleaning the pick up roller. It may be your paper has quite a dusty surface and this will cling to the pick up roller making it less grippy. When the paper is fed it may not make the first sensor in the expected time and thus creates the error. Get a service manual to show you how to get a t the pick up roiller so you can remove and clean it. You can get Platen Cleaner from many web sites and it is specifically formulated to regain friction os such rollers. Try either: http://wwwTheServiceManualShop.com or http://mikeburton.tradebit.com/ for a service manual
