I bought an Epson 4750 printer a few months ago and have had nothing but problems with it. Ever since day one it has been incredibly slow. It’s now gives me a scanner error 100016 and displays a message asking me to contact support. I also have an Epson ET 2550 and was comparing speeds. The 2550 spit out 49 pages in the time the 4750 spit out 7.

I got the same thing on my 4740. I turned it off, opened the main compartment, took out an ink cartridge just for the heck of it, closed it, and turned it back on. Powered on fine ?‍♂️

Thank you Margaret! It worked for me too! changed a cartridge and it powered up!

How can I fix Epson ET-4750 with system error 202201?

Have the same problem with WF 4740-under 2 years old Scanner ERROR 100016- It seems to happen right after I print- Print cartridges are not moving- Turned ON the OFF- a few times- did not work until I heard the cartridges moving- then I knew the Scanner Error 10016 would not be there- Until the next Time!- Took out a the black ink cartridge and replaced it- worked after 2 tries and shut OFF/ON- There obviuosly is an issue which I don’t know the answer to- Wish someone from Epson tech support would help in this regard

I have the exact same problem as Margaret-Try everything- mine is 2 1/2 years old- removed paper trays-removed black cartridge and reinserted, must turn ON then OFF about 10-20 times- when I hear ink cartridge moving then I know it is OK- ANY other suggestions- Going to call Epson tomorrow- Will probably have no luck unless they can walk me through driver re-install- ANY SUGGESTIONS?

Took the new inks out reinserted, error code gone – I’d rand Epson previously ( what a waste of time) A loon in somewhere like the Philippines asked if I’d taken it out of the box. Thanks to all those who advised the 10 sec ink cartridge trick…best wishes Dave

I’m convinced, EPSON is not interested in helping. They should have posted an answer (solution) for this error and not try to sell another printer.

You need to check all plugins inside to printer. If you up to lead, this is shleif take off. You need to be take back.
