Fatal Error

Turn off the printer, then turn it on again. The ink out lights come on and the print head moves left. Replace the ink cartridge with a new one. If the fatal error occurs again after turning on the printer, contact your dealer.

Epson Printer Errors

If your printer is displaying an error code or message on the control panel, search for `Error code` on your product`s FAQs tab.

If your printer`s status displays “Printer in error state,” there may be a problem with the printer itself. Make sure the printer is turned on and connected to your PC by Wi-Fi or cable. Check it for low paper or ink, and be sure the cover isn`t open and the paper isn`t jammed.
Your printer display or status monitor may read “Fatal Error”. This simply means a problem has occurred requiring action to clear. A “Fatal Error” does not mean your printer will “die”.

Error Code 51.1 says Printer Error No Kidding.lol
ANSWER : Sometimes turning off and on will allow you to print a few pages. The error is a beam detect error. The only real fix is to replace the laser scanner unit. Could be a loose connector on the scanner or DC controller from the scanner. That’s unlikely. You could try the only other free fix which is to open the scanner assy. and clean all the mirrors inside. The dust could obstruct the laser beam enough to cause the detect error.
