Epson Stylus Color 850 Ne power light flashes

Got an Epson Stylus Color 850 Ne. Been a good printer so far and worked three days ago. I went to use it last night and the green power light is flashing (once per second). I have reset it, I have pulled the network card (was using it as a serial anyways), I have restarted the Mac connected to it, I have verified that it is properly chosen in Chooser, it had ample ink to last for a few more weeks of mild use, I have gone through the Epson support site looking at doc...

Please help.

TIA

P.S.

...it also sat completely unplugged all night last night.

solved...

...seems that *somehow* goblins broke into my home and sabotaged my Mac by setting the AppleTalk option to "Printer Port" vice "Ethernet". As such, the printer did not like it and was blinking at me to let me know.

All this time I though it was trying to tell me something about Toby falling down the well - silly me.

Anyways, I got it working.
