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!"

Sounds like an internal error. If you have tried turning it off and on and still that error persist... Sevicer there is already a problem internally.

My CX5400 printer just gave me an error message that says call service. It printed earlier today...


Might be time for you to purchase another printer.

I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .

Good Luck.

Scaner Epson CX-5400 error message


What is the error message? SCANNER ERROR?
If that is what you getting, turn printer off then open scanner cover- on the left hand side there is a toggle log for scanner, position it to unlock then turn printer on then try scanning/copying again.

if your having a different error message pls indicate the exact error that you are getting.

Epson CX5400 Printer Error Light and Message


Dont know how it is in the good old US but here in UK - Epson have this super 'swap out' scheme for the more complex devices that die out of warranty. What we do - is to phone Epson and tell them the tale. they will then offer to send FedEx with a new printer and you give the driver your old one all for a quick flash of your plastic friend. If they do it - go for it.
