I had the same error and looked at the suggestions. It seems all of the user correctable problems are related to the ink carriage not being able to move freely (mine was a paper jam). Open the lid and see if the carriage will move,

The ink tank is full and the printer is calling for a service engineer.Every time you switch on your printer, or change the ink, the printer cleans the heads by flushing ink through them. This leads to a load of waste ink in the bottom of your printer. In order not to get a messy desk Epson have put a counter on the flushing activity and the E90 error is saying this counter has reached the maximum.You have to reset this counter,to fix this error.
Hi, To correct my E-90 error I opened the lid and saw that there was a torn piece of paper under the carriage which jammed the carriage so it could not move. Two minutes later, after I moved the carriage by hand and removed the paper jam, I powered off and back on and I'm back in operation. Thanks to all before me who suggested it might be user fixable. Good luck! And Thanks.
Generally the fix for most "e 90" error messages on Epson printers is to check under the hood of the printer for something that is there and shouldn't be, eg. glue stick, pencil, paper jam, etc. Most e 90 error messages are solved by simply removing something that shouldn't be there. If, in fact, that doesn't fix it, you should try removing the printer catridges and re-setting the printer. If this still does not fix the problem you should try contacting the Epson Customer Service department and try and get a replacement printer, considering this is surely a hardware issue.
I see now that your printer is an Epson Stylus Photo 250. The error E90 is not defined, other than "contact Epson". However, other users have reported that clearing an obstruction fixed the problem. Try this.
Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head starts to move, pull the power lead out of the printer, or turn it off at the mains. The print head should now be free to move by hand. Gently move it backwards and forwards to see if there is any obstruction. Look into the print head parking area on the right - does anything there appear to be causing an obstruction? Report back.
E-90 error is a carriage error. You can reset printer by turning it off and unplugging it then check inside the printer after opening the top cover, check for any parts that are damage or any foreign objects inside. Then replug and turn it on, if all fails then chances are the product is damage or broke. call epson if you still have a warranty for replacement or have it service.
