    Following are some reasons and steps on how to fix communication error on Epson Printer:

    Faulty power cable
    Fault in the power socket
    Loose cable connection
    Wrong interface cable
    Network issue, if using a wireless printer
    Printer Hardware problem
    Outdated printer firmware
    Compatibility issues
    Before we go ahead with technical ‘do-it-yourself’ troubleshooting, check the power outlet and the connections of all the cables connecting printer with other devices:

    Uninstall and Reinstall the Printer Drivers
    Go to start menu and click on Control Panel. Go to Devices and Printer. Look out for your Epson printer. Right click on it and select uninstall to remove the old drivers from your computer. Now, open Epson website, search for printer drivers under download section and download the drivers on your desktop. Click on driver downloadable file and install the drivers. Follow the instructions and once the installation process completes, restart the system.

    Check Cable Connections
    Turn off the printer and computer. Check if the cable of your multi-function Epson printer is properly connected to the power slot and your PC. Turn on both the devices.

    Check Network Connections
    If the printer is on the network, check for the printer’s TCP/IP address. Then, try printing the Configuration page from the printer’s control panel to check whether it is displaying a duplicate IP message. If a duplicate IP message exists, then update the IP address for the printer. Now, run the Network Diagnostics Test to check the network settings for your printer and PC. On printer’s display, go to control panel, select Troubleshooting. Go to Network Problems and then Network Diagnostics to successfully perform the network test. The results of the test will display on your printer’s display. If it asks to contact network administrator, then contact your Internet Service Provider.

    I hope this information guide will be helpful to resolve Communication error on Epson printer.
