The printer didn't recognize the black ink cartridge so i removed that and reset. Still didn't recognize so i took out again and reset all cartridges. then 9A error came up so i reset cartridges again now none of the 4 cartridges are recognized. Ready to "office space this piece o'junk" PS worked great for 2-3 years.


Never ever put remanufactured ink in this model. If you do you have a very expensive office decoration and need a new printer. Never ever will I buy Epson again.


i agree epson is a great door stop i have ad 2 xp 860 one was a warrantee replacement and both ended up with the 0x9a error code and locked the machine all up so now i have a door stop, i went out and bought a canon mega tank........ so far so good


I’ve only used Epson ink in mine and have this code. But I’ve also used this printer for almost 10 years so I’m not really that upset.


I had an ink jam, bought new ink- didn't work, cleaned head-didn't work, bought new head, - didn't work, new ink for new head - didn't work, error keeps me from access driver download to try load updates?. Looks like I buy a new printer and NEVER EVER BUY EPSON AGAIN!!!!

Sanskar Patel on the Epson WF series that error code indicates a carriage fault. That can be caused by debris/obstruction (paper jam, bent/damaged rails, out of place purge assembly/wiper, or dirty/dislocated encoder strip) to a bad sensor or control board, faulty carriage drive motor/gear/belt, bad printhead/carriage pcb. also check the ink cartridge holder and make sure it is properly seated. As you can see it is a broad non-specific error code that will require you to check the aforementioned things first.

Call the Epson 800# for support for this code and was prompted to pay $199 for them to fix it remotely and the tech wanted access to my computer .....never buy an Epson again !!!


I will never buy an Epson printer again!!! Nothing but clogged print heads and error codes!


Were the tech support sites Epson or third party? If it was Epson and

they are charging for a remote fix, that tells me two things;

1. If it was a third-party support site that wanted access to your system,

that should send off signal flares that you are being scammed.

2. If it was Epson Tech support, I would still be concerned. The last

few firmware updates nagged me over using third-party ink cartridges.

It might be that Epson is shutting down printers unless the owner

uses their overpriced ink.

Finally, I live in the High Desert of Southern California. Sand, dust and

my case cat hair (my pet sleeps on the printer,) are everywhere!

Once it cools off, I am going to lug it out to my back porch and fire up my compressor and blow the snot out of it and give it a good inspection once

it cools off this evening. I will post the results.


After a thorough cleaning, my printer is still a brick!


I am having this problem but the carriage will not move from the far right position. I can see a small white plastic part sticking up and blocking it, but I have no idea what it is or does. Clear it is not supposed to be in the position it's in as it completely blocks the carriage from moving. Any idea how to correct?

Sanskar Patel, Try to clean and reset your printer to get rid of the Error code: 0x9A/carriage fault.

Open up the printer check for scraps of paper, lint or foreign objects,staple, etc. Make sure carriage moves manually, or moves on its own when raising lid. If moving freely, continue cleaning with compressed air blowing out inside printer compartment while checking both sides are clear, wipe down the encoder strip with a soft cloth and a few drops of alcohol, it is a clear plastic strip running the width of the printer, that sits just slightly above and behind the carriage. Now reset the machine, detach printer from outlet, wait 5 minutes then press and hold power button a minute or two, while still holding power on button plug printer in and continue holding button for another minute after plugged in, release button.

Find below a link trying to solve problem of similar issue. Good luck.

@elizaswift careful when you link to one site consistently. It comes across as Spam to some and that is not tolerated on here.


this is a printer error not a pc error, your answer totally misses the point

I am thinking it is the encoder belt - long clear plastic belt about 1/4 inch wide. It sits behind the print head and runs left to right.

If this has jumped out of the guide rail of the print head it will cause head to malfunction with various error messages including that one.

  1. I don't have any idea of what to do about a lot of issues.. I try to understand why a very successful company would find the headaches and bad talk were worth selling some ink cartridges and that the aftermath wouldn't scar the company for life. There are hundreds of thousands of people with like problems. This huge company did not make this happen on purpose. Today its too easy to just go somewhere else. My in site Alan

I too have this issue.

I followed some instructions online by cleaning this, cleaning that, press and hold the power button, unplug it etc etc etc.

I then has an online chat with Epson, they told me to do one thing…it didn’t work and suggested to book an engineer of around £130!!!

Epson has to take some responsibility for this error message as it’s happening to too many users - so there must be a problem! Just like the cars that are malfunctioning!!!!

I need a printer for my business so need to either fix this one or buy another asap and I need one that includes A3 paper and there isn’t many of them that have good reviews….
