Epson printer not responding
The printer not responding error in Epson printer mostly appears due to connection issue. If the printer is connected with a USB cable then try to inspect the cable. Eject the cable from your printer and connect your phone device. If your phone gets connected then your cable is working. But, if your phone is unable to connect then your cable is faulty. Get a working USB cable for connecting the printer. Now check whether your printer is responding or not. If the error is appearing while using wireless printers then you should check your connection point. You can get the error when the router is not working properly. Go to your router and restart the WPS button. The printer will take some to make a connection. Once the lamp light gets steady then you can easily take the printouts.
Paper Jamming
You will merely get paper jamming issues with this Epson printer. Paper jam issues mostly appear on DMP but you can get this error on your MX printer when the paper sheets are not aligned properly. While taking the printouts, if the paper is not fully aligned then it will get stuck inside the printer. You have to remove the paper from the printer to fix the error. Open the access door and take out the paper chunk. Now align all the sheets in the input tray. Again try to give a print command and check whether the error gets resolved or not.
Epson error code 0x97

The Epson driver update process may take some time. Restart your PC after updating the printer driver. Now check for the Epson Printer Error Code 0x97.

Download and install the driver and your error will get resolved.
The printer is showing low ink level
Some people reported that they are getting low ink warning messages but they are able to take the printouts. The low ink level message appears when the ink on your cartridge is about to get empty. But you can take the printouts until the cartridge gets empty. Whenever you get the warning message you should purchase a new cartridge as the low ink level will get you faded printouts. Open the access door and take out the empty cartridge. Now install the new cartridge carefully in your printer. After replacing the cartridge, you won’t get the low ink level warning message.
