Question about Epson Workforce 520 Printer
I had this issue and contacted epson support. They had me open the top to access the cartridges and physically slide the cartridge from its resting place over to the other side and and there was a small piece of paper that got caught in a print and was between the the ink and the cleaners. I then needed to physically move the cartridges back to the resting place and then close the top. Then on the printer, go to the menu and clean the nossels and the test the cartridge. if the lines are broken at all or you dont see words at the top of the test page, then clean the nozzles again. complete this and print a test page or copy. I was good to go.

Mine had same error but instead of a piece of paper stuck in it, the ink cartridge cleaner fell off the track. The cleaner being the foam pad that would be directlyunder the ink cartridge in off position. Just push the two plastic bars back up and over onto its track and that will prevent the ink cartridge from hitting it and causing an error.

This worked exactly as described for me. Had a paper jam, little piece was stuck behind the print cartridge. Back up and working now. Thanks!

I received the same error. All I did was cleaned the ink cartridges and that fixed. I also moved the cartridges to the left to reset the cartridge drive

After trying all of the above multiple time to no avail, I removed all the cartridges again then ANGRILY slid the magazine back and forth 10 or 15 times while calling it names, put the cartridges back in...it seemed to work fine. Called it a few more names just to make sure...no problems since.
