fatal error code 0x02
My Epson Stylus Photo 1400, after initializing(the usual print head movement when switched on) finally stops at home position then produces a "grinding " noise with the timing belt shaking, and the ink and paper lights blinking continously. Connected to the computer, WICRESET software says " Fatal error code 0x02 motor drive fatal error (CR)
Judging by this prior post on the forum http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/posts/77131 I would tell you to spare yourself some grief and expense and buy a new printer. Epson only sells parts to authorized service centers and by the time you get done dealing with one of them, you could have bought a newer model.
there's a white dial on bottom right of printer with an arrow stick a flat head in there screw driver and twist it you might have to take off the case .
