Epson Stylus cx4800 General Error


After clearing a paper jam, the printer lights up like a Christmas tree indicating a general error "E". I'm convinced there is no paper residue left. However, I tried to take it apart to make sure. I was unsuccessful with taking it apart. I know it will cost more to repair than purchase a new one. Any suggestions on taking it apart and verifying there is no paper residue or getting to the cause of the general error? Help.


  • Using the on/off switch on the printer turn it on and off multiple times.
  • Unplug the printer from the power source and leave it unplugged for a couple of hours.
  • remove the software for the printer unplug it from power with your printer manual in hand follow EXACTLY the instructions to reinstall the printer.
