Question about Epson Stylus CX5400 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have had a cx5400 for quite some while now and apart from a few little probs due to its age it has gone very well.Until recently that is when I had to move the unit to decorate and when re connecting afterwards it refuses to switch on or rather it switches on the power to the machine but comes up with the message Printer Error refer to your manual or cantact an engineer and promptly refuses to go any further.I would really appreciate your help guys.Jackie K
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.
