Epson Stylus DX4800 All Lights Flashing Could it be an ink spill?

Hello, I turned on my old Epson Stylus today and all the lights were flashing. I've read this is a fatal error or a 'return for service' error. However I can't find anywhere online saying how I should troubleshoot this or what it could be.

I opened it up in case it was something obvious, and there was a layer of dry ink everywhere, I couldn't see anything broken and it didn't look like the ink was hindering anything. I removed the cartridges and they didn't seem to have any indication of spilling or breaking open or anything. There were two little slots/holes beside and underneath the cartridge bay which had gunks of ink in them which I cleaned out somewhat.

Can anyone point me in the right direction of how to troubleshoot this issue please?

Thank you
