Epson Epson Artisan 1430

New Epson Artisan 1430 not working

Hi, I just bought an epson artisan 1430 and once I turn it on, the paper feed and ink lights keep flashing and the printer just makes a loud grinding noise. I checked and nothing is blocking the printhead. I would have returned it but I am in Nigeria and shipping it back to the US will cost more than the printer itself. What could be the problem?
