Why does my printer beep 5 times when I turn it on?
If the printer beeps 5 times when it is turned on, try the following to see if it solves the problem.

1) Shut printer power off
2) Slide printhead from left to right about 10 times (ensuring the printhead touches each side of the carriage)
3) Center the printhead and power it back on

This may clear the error, which is most likely due to a faulty or dirty contact in the home position sensor. If not, then the unit may be in need of service by an authorized EPSON service center.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
