Total ludite here so you'll have to bear with me.
I have an Epson 312-313-315 series printer. And whenever I turn it on after about 30 seconds (to a minute max, it varies) it turns itself off.
Now when it's on, the light is green on the printer, the LCD on the printer displays it normal stuff and the printer icon appears on my computer. When it turns itself off their is no light on and the printer, the LCD screen goes dark and the icon on my computer is faded.
The only change in the printer is it normally sits in my room but since I was nightshift last week it got moved through to the conservatory so I wouldn't get woken. The first time I've tried to use it since then was today. The only thing I can think is the conservatory is the coldest place in the house and it's been below freezing most nights the past week. But that shouldn't affect it surely?
Other than that I've checked all cables are secure, nothing inside is blocking the mechanical moving of the printer heads, ink is full, tried with a wired connection (printer is normally wireless) and made sure the paper feed tray is free of blocks.
Any help anyone could give would be brilliant, thank you in advance.
