Epson scanner CX 5500 - CARRIAGE UNIT LOCKED

My epson scanner cx5500 said, ''Cannot properly communicate with scanner. The carriage unit may be locked depending on your scanner model.'' Then all the lights went flashing, I just bought this printer less than a month and this is the 2nd time i'm using it. All power plug was check and changed, but still, nothing changed, still the same message and lights flashing. I even downloaded updated version on software, but still don't help.

This sounds like there is a mechanical problem inside the scanner. You may want to open the scanner to see if there is anything broken or jammed. It may need some lubrication if it has been unused for a long period of time.
