With epsom ink jet printers the printhead is on the machine, not he cartridge as with many printers. This complicates things!
I suggest you get some cleaner cartridges put them in and run one single cleaning cycle each day until the cartridge is finished. Remember just One cleaning each day,,, this is to allow time for the cleaner to sit and "possibly" dissolve the blockage.
It is about your only chance of salvage.
An Ink jet printers worst enemy is sitting for long periods of time without printing on a regular basis, The ink dries in the print head nozzle!

The instructions are fairly easy to follow. If you need the head cleaning solution click here .

Repairs: All Epson Stylus printers (except for the C64-C86, CX4600-CX6400 series) which don't print, or print choppy in black or color. For the other printers, as well as Canon BJCs, use the other repair kit.


  • This is the same chemical used by Epson in their service department
  • Easy to use, no disassembly required
  • Gently dissolves even the most stubborn clogs and restores output to dried out print nozzles and clogged printheads

Note: This is not alcohol or Windex; it is an ink-specific solvent that has proven to be safe and effective for use on Epson printheads. Do not use alcohol or Windex, they will very likely ruin your printer.

These codes can be indicative of a faulty sensor or damaged part.

But let's try this:

I have had similar issues with my MACs and HP printers, however I have often fixed the problem by re-installing the printer software and/or deleted the printer from the printer list in system preferences.
If you have the Epson disc fine...if not, the OS should be able to "find" it for you via the internet. try re-installing the printer software.
BUT you say that the scanner works via the computer.
Have you tried shutting off the Epson and unplugging it from the A/C outlet and unplugging all cables? Leave the cables out for at least 30 seconds and try again. This is the procedure for a forced re-boot of many printers. Hopefully, this will help.

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.

Turn the printer unit ON
2. Pull the power plug from the back side of it
3. wait 1 min
4. Plug unit back in
5. wait 3 full minutes
6. try to print does the error still exist? If yes continue below

Locate one piece of CARD STOCK paper and manually feed it up against the feed assembly and into the feed.Must be CARD STOCK PAPER, regular paper will not work. the idea is too dislodge any pieces of paper that may be broken off inside the rollers, and not visible to the eye. Repeat this process until the error goes away.

If you continue to experience problems, PLEASE RESPOND TO ME

First, here's a copy of the manual:

Second, attempt the following which I copied this answer from another post concerning the same error code:
"The problem is waste ink around head sprayer (at (bottom plate of head). Turn of printer. Move head to center. Put wet tissue (with hot water) at head cleaning mechanic pad. Move head to parking position. wait till 10 minutes. check it. You can repeat 3 times." (Post by Anjazmoro Wicaksono)

If that does not work, are you able to open the printer and look for anything that may be blocking proper function?

I am on my second printer with the error. Epson explained it is a motherboard failure. The error is not caused by a PC or the software on it. Instead, this is a printer hardware failure.

After exchanging the printer, the replacement printer has now dies from the same error. The problem starts as blurry printing and progresses to the full hardware failure. Once the Hardware fails and you get the error code, there is nothing an end user can do. The motherboard needs to be replaced.

My printers were working fine up until I swapped out the factory cartridges that shipped with the printer. In both of my cases, there were no issues or symptoms until I started using the Epson XL cartridges. As soon as I installed those, the symptoms started to show. Within a couple of months after swapping in the XL cartridges, the motherboard dies.

1) Call Epson and complain, make them log the details even if it is out of warranty. This helps establish the pattern and knowledge of the issue.
2) Swap printer if under warranty. They may want a credit card to charge in case they do not receive the bad printer back. Just resend it in the box the replacement came in. Epson supplies shipping labels and covers the shipping costs.

I discovered some time ago that Epson printers can be a bit "touchy." Somewhere on the net and I can't find it right now, there's a British bloke who first shared his solution, and I continue to use it today: Remove the cartridge in question. Then turn off your printer and go have a cup of tea (or coffee or whatever...). It's best if you can leave it overnight even. Then next day, turn it on, replace the cartridge and try to print your page again....
As an ebayer who uses a LOT of printer ink, I also have discovered that THE CHEAPEST way to operate an all-in-one printer is to purchase a refill kit and refill one's own cartridges. Then you are surprised and AMAZED at how long your printer will keep printing and printing and printing. Yes, I'm talking about the needles and syringes. I used to think they were too messy. But if your budget is tight, a little messy one day in about 2 or 3 months doesn't seem too bad. I refill all my cartridges at a sink which can be cleaned up afterwards (NOT the kitchen). I have two sets of cartridges for each color, and voila! I bless my printer every day for how long it keeps printing! How cheaply it operates. One must disable the ink monitor, but even then, there is the occasional day when it just decides not to recognize one cartridge or another... I'm about to get all fidgety myself when I recall the British solution, and I shut it off and go have a cup of tea!

People who think they MUST purchase only Epson cartridges, well, they must have a lot of money!

My Epson NX3300 All-in-One is a real jewel! It has never worked better!

Probably a paper jam in the duplexer. Pop the back off and see if there's a paper jam.
