What your seeing in the youtube video is someone who has a Tjet 2 with a bad mother board. The way the printer is starting up going into a head cleaning then error is a common symptom of a bad mother board. How T2 users get this problem is when they change the print head and have the power cord plugged in at the same time. Did you leave you power cord plugged in when changing the head? What happens is when the cord is plugged in you still have electric current being introduced to the printer. Same as any electrical item in your home. Once you unplug the head your breaking the current which then causes a short. This can cause the ribbon cables and print head to fry and in most cases your mother board. Check your fuse located in back of your printer before doing anything to cheaply and quickly rule this out. If its fried replace it. That fuse may take the impact of the short. Still doesn't work then replace your print head. If that doesn't work then replace or repair the mother board.

If you found another solution please share to help others that may have this same issue.

No. The T-Jet main board has special firmware that was specially burnt for it by Epson. You cannot just replace it with a standard main board.

Where you connect your USB. That's the main board locate at the base of the printer. You'll have to take out the bed to get to it.

May be a tough one to locate. Inventory for these parts getting lower and lower since these printers haven't been built in years and parts are now obsolete. Try American Screen Supply in Phoenix, Arizona.

But isnt there the possibility to copy the eprom from the motherboard via ssc-utility and write it to an Epson Stylus 2100 Motherboard via parallel printer cord? There is a Thread about it, but does it work?
