ALthough you didnt give the model of the printer this has helped reset it on other epson printers.
unplug the printer from both USB and Power.
Hold down power button and then plug in the printer while the power is held down.
if this doesn't do it try holding down the paper button and the power, while plugging in. since this can be tricky, plug it into a power strip so you can power off and on easily. This is a help at the bottom for a R220 that mentions somthing similar. http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/pho22_/pho22_rf/parts_1.htm
try replacing the power adapter n cord.. if u r a professional check the fuse, transformer, diodes n transistor in the switching section of the adaptor as well as the printer.. if u r not, better to seek a professional supervision or contact ur system admin/vendor....
The problem caused by waste ink at bottom plate arround head sprayer. Clean it. Turn off printer. Move head to center. Put wet tissue (with warm/hot water) upper head cleaning pad. Move head to right (parking position). wait for 10 minutes. Repeat it for 2-3 times. Check nozzle.
Here are some things to try:
1. Different plug (outlet) just to make sure it isn't the plug causing an issue.
2. Unplug the power cable from the back of the printer itself if possible and plug it back in while holding down the power button.
3. Unplug the printer from the computer all together and see if it powers up.
4. If it's a separate power cord try to find one similar in nature to plug in and try out as it may be the cord.
This indicates a so-called "fatal" error. Because your print-head cannot fully move into its parking position on the right, it seems likely that the parking mechanism has come adrift. Turn the printer on, and as soonas the print head tries to move, pull the power cord out of the printer. You should now be able to move the print head (gently) out of the way and see into the parking area. If there is a plastic rod sticking up, ull it gently towards you and it should snap down out of the way. The printer should now work. If the problem re-occurs, it means the mechanism is clogged up with dried ink. Try repeating the above process a few times to see if it clears it.
If you see that the whole parking mechaism has come adrift, this almost certainly means the front spring has come off. This will require the printer to be dismantled I'm afraid, so will cleaning the print mechanism. Service Manuals are available to help with this.
