How to Identify and Fix Common printer Problems ?

Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced technical support :

A blue or green light indicates the printer is operating correctly, while a red light indicates an error has occurred.
Remove the jammed paper, and press the B&W copy button or the color copy button to clear the error. No paper is loaded or multiple sheets fed at one time. Load paper in the product, and press the B&W copy button or the color copy button to clear the error.
Most of the time, the flashing red light indicates that you are running low on paper. If the paper is not running low, make sure that the roll is pushed all the way to the back of the printer.
This can happen if the driver has not been set up correctly for the media(paper/sticker) type that is being used.
Check that the correct paper is properly loaded into the printer and is not jammed. Replacing damaged cables, plugging in loose or disconnected cables, and fixing paper jams as necessary may resolve the issue.
Verify that the printer is properly connected to the computer or network. Restart both the printer and the computer. Update or reinstall the printer drivers and software. If the issue persists, consult the printer`s user manual or Epson`s support resources for further assistance.
If the scanner light is still flashing red, the scanner may be malfunctioning, or the scanner light source may need to be replaced. Contact Epson for details.
Buildup of thermal ribbon or media coating on the printhead can cause overheating and eventual failure.
Are you wondering why my printer is showing orange light? It indicates firmware issues, paper jams, or improperly installed cartridges. Resolve it by performing a power reset of your printer. Take out the installed cartridges.
It`s used for printer diagnostics. If it`s solid ON and in red that`s not good. The smiley face led (a little above) is solid ON green that`s good. If the printer works you are fine ( smiley LED face is ON), if the printer doesn`t work solid red heartbeat is for defective formatter board or memory.
The yellow triangle on the printer is the alarm lamp of the printer; if it is lit, it indicates that there is an item that needs to be addressed on the printer.
Print blemishes after inserting a new cartridge. Slow print times. Abnormal noises. Paper jams and ripped paper.
