Looks like it might be complaining about the CD tray not being locked properly, or there might be paper in the CD tray?

Check out this page for the error codes, and to see about running a printer test

There's also a printer reset guide here on youtube. Good luck!

On Epson printers, this generally means that the waste ink tank is full. Non LCD models usually indicate that problem with this pattern, while LCD models say something to the effect of the waste ink pad being full.

If you want to make sure on non LCD models like yours, check Epson Status Monitor for the following error: Parts inside your printer require replacement.

The best way to fix this problem is to take a large bottle, a cutoff valve and vinyl tubing in place of the (now full) internal waste ink pad. Taking it apart is difficult and messy, and isn't worth the effort. The other problem is the counter still needs to be reset. While Epson has a tool for *most* older printers, some of the new models don't have an official tool, which can be found here. For printers without an official reset from Epson (or in some cases, reset more then once), you will need to use a 3rd party tool, which often cost money.

Some of the older printers that predate the 88/69/68 cartridges have a reset command built into the printer that you initiate through the buttons on the front panel of the printer that are not dependent on a software reset. Generally speaking, newer models no longer have this option and software is required to do the reset. The last known printers to allow this software free reset are the T048 models.
