This happens when I try to boot it up.

Epson ET-15000. Used ~780 prints flawlessly, then suddenly this issue starts. Any ideas? No paper is stuck that I can see.

That looks a lot like the C84 when the sensor board that reads the horizontal position of the printhead has disconnected or gotten a short at the connection point where the ribbon cable connects in.

I don't have an ET-15000 to check nor a service manual but the behaviour of the printhead and that speed left + screech was classic "blind printhead" of old.

Having a total brain fart trying to remember the correct part name for the strip and sensor but hopefully that's of some help.

Did you ever figure out what was wrong with your printer? Mine has started doing this and I have no clue how to fix it.
