So without further ado, let’s begin.

How to Manually Reset Epson Printers


STEP 1: Make sure that your printer is turned on.

STEP 2: Press the power button (this will turn off your printer)

STEP 3: Once turned off, wait for five (5) seconds.

STEP 4: Press and hold the pink button. While holding on to the pink button, press the power button at the same time. This will turn on your printer & the green light (power indicator) will also start blinking. Once the green button stops blinking, release the pink button. You’ll now see the steady or blinking LED light on the pink button.

STEP 5: Press the pink button for about 10 seconds. After counting to ten, quickly release the pink button and then press it again for about two (2) seconds and release it again.

That’s it, you’re done! Notice that the LED light on the pink button has now stopped from blinking or from having a steady light.

If you’re having trouble following the steps above, just kindly watch the video below and follow the steps correctly. You may skip the first couple of seconds and proceed on 00:25 part.

Just in case you still failed to manually reset your printer using the method above, try this work around.


STEP 1: Press the power button (this will turn off your printer)

STEP 2: Wait for 10 seconds

STEP 3: Press the power button (this will turn on your printer and the green light will also start blinking)

STEP 4: Now as green light goes steady, press the pink button for about 10 seconds

STEP 5: Release the pink button and press it again for about 2 seconds.

That’s it. You’re done.

Please take note that the methods above are ALMOST the same. I just omitted the part from Method No. 1 where you have to press the pink button while powering on your printer.
