MY NEXT PRINTER WON'T BE AN EPSON!!!!!!!!
If your printer has a pause/continue or reset button, press and hold for about 10 seconds.

Worth a try.....
I have the cure,

pick it up, throw it out of the window,

may not fix the error, but you'll feel better

thanx for the help but alas this can't help
I would unplug it from wall and take the ink cartridge out. Plug it back i and see what happens with no cartridge and go from there. If it doesn't work try a sledge hammer it wont fix it but boy it will make you feel good
did you manage to solve this? I'm having the same issue with my epson xp-305

It was under guarantee and was replaced by a local epson dealer, the error cannot be fixed as the rom chip needs to replaced and as it is soldered to the board it isn't worth doing they said. ps if you get a new one don't update the firmware.
I just resolved this issue!!! My printer was stuck on recovery mode for a while now. I was thinking of throwing this printer and swore I would never buy an epson printer but gave it my ditch effort to call Epson and tech support talked me through resolving this problem. I have an epson xp-400 wireless, so I needed a usb 2.0 cable type AB to help me update my Firmware. Download the Firmware and that took care of the problem. Hope this helps some of you!
