This sounds like a paper jam. make sure that the rollers are okay, you find this when the printer turns on and the rollers go. they should slide without problems if they are Ok. In a case where the rollers themselves have a problem, take the printer to a tec who can fix that easily.
Also check the cartridge holder if the rollers are fine. it could be that the holder itself isnt managing to slide on the bar well. clear off any obstuctions and make sure the cartridge rest holder at the extreme right is Ok, else that will need to be positioned.

This Epson Printer error E-01 occurs in the Epson Service Manual which indicates a type of fatal error. It simply signifies that the printer is incapable to finish the self-test process. When users are trying to power ON the printer it begins to check for all systems. If it is found that it is unable to finish the self test process then, the printer will come up with an error message as mentioned above. Follow these steps to resolve Error E-01.
Steps to Resolve Error E-01: Step 1: Turn on/off the printer power button
Turn the power off. Wait for a while then turn on it again.
Step 2: Managing the lock of the printer
Store transportation lock carefully.
Step 3: Managing the CD tray
Press the CD Tray button to retract the tray to its original storage position. Be careful never to push or pull the CD tray into the wrong position. Turn off the Epson Printer and make sure that there is no paper left which may lead to paper jam issue inside the unit.
Step 4: Checking the printer cartridge
If the printer is installed with the CISS then, make sure that its carriage is easily movable towards left and right side.
The printer's upper scanner part should be closed tightly.
Step 5: Perform a check-up process.
Install original Epson ink cartridges and then run the printer.
Step 6: Access the cartridge
Access the cartridge loading area while the printer is in off-mode and then, move the carriage right away from the stop. Carefully disassemble the printer and then, clean all its optical sensors, paper feed sensors, encoder strip as well as disc encoder.
I had exactly the same problem. In my case I was able to deal with it by twisting the whole upper place of the printer (the half side of the printer that you open when changing cartridges), like when you remove the ice cubes from a tray.. I have to do this only during the starting up. After the initial scanner test, it works normally till the printer does the automatic scanner test again, or if I turn it on/off again.
I am trying to get a permanent solution by installing a piece or rubber on one side of the printer, between both upper and lower sides, so it will create the twisting effect.
By the way, I would agree with the previous comment from doc_delphi. The printer is not too expensive and I would replace by a new one. Unfortunately I live in a jungle and its not easy to bring stuff up here. We have to be creative and develop patience.
I hope this post helps others. Good Luck;

take a look at the back of your printer there should be a panell that comes off if you can take that pannel off look in there there is most likely paper stuck back there not allowing your printer to spool
you have left it on sheet feed what you need to do is press the button on the top which is furthest to your left until it shows the paper until the led panel shows a pic of a roll of paper with scissors
tray this The procedure for the factory inspection mode is as follows. (1) Turn off the printer power switch, open the front cover, and remove the drum unit. (2) Turn on the printer power switch while holding down the control panel button. The Drum LED comes ON. (3) Lightly press the panel button again. (4) Check that all the LEDs except the Ready LED are OFF. ✒ If the toner sensor is ON, the Drum LED stays ON (error). ✒ If the front registration sensor is ON, the Alarm LED stays ON (error). ✒ If the upper paper cassette sensor is ON, the Data LED stays ON. (error) (HL-1250 only) NOTE: The lower paper cassette solenoid is turned ON/OFF even if the panel button is not pressed. (5) Check the rear registration sensor. ✒ If the rear registration sensor is stuck backwards, the Ready LED stays OFF. (error) ✒ If the rear registration sensor is moved back and forth, the Ready LED comes ON at any time. (error) (6) Check that only the Data LED comes ON while pressing the panel button. ✒ If the paper eject sensor is ON, the Drum LED stays ON. (error) ✒ If the lower paper cassette registration sensor is ON, the Ready LED stays ON. (error) If the registration sensor is ON, the lower paper cassette solenoid is turned ON, and the Ready LED also stays ON.

(7) Install the drum unit. ✒ Check that the Drum LED goes ON and the Ready LED goes OFF. (8) Close the front cover. (9) Continue to press the control panel button. ✒ Check that the Data LED stays OFF. (10) Release the panel button.

1. Turn printer off
2. Press the left 2 buttons down and continue holding them down while turning the power button on. (all 3 are now pressed down)
3. In 3 or 4 seconds, the paper feed (jam) LED light begins to flash. (middle button)
4. Within 3 seconds as the paper feed button LED still flashes, release all 3 buttons together and immediately press down the ink cleaning button (left) and continue to hold down for about 10 - 20 seconds. As soon as the cleaning docking button LED flash, release it. That's it! You are now reset and ready to go.
NOTE: This is a strict timimg procedure and must be done fairly precisely in order for it to work. It may require several attempts for it to work for you. But...it does work! Happy printing!
