First try clearing the print jobs:
Control Panel > Devices and Printers. Right-click your printer name, select See what's printing, right-click each/any job that is showing, click Cancel, then click Yes.

You should also ensure that the connections are firm (remove them and put them back in again) and/or print directly from the computer if you are using wireless. The latter might tell us something.

EDIT: This would be better on the General Hardware forum. This area (The Lounge) is for very general stuff. I'll ask for it to be moved.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Another possible.

Try a different USB port, make sure it is a rear one if a PC.

And if none of those suggestions work, delete the printer, go to Epson's website and download the newest drivers they have for that model, then install those.

And if you still have the problem maybe it's time for a new printer.
