Why i am getting printer port error 2147024830 and how to fix this?

I have an Epson wireless printer at home and I have been using it for over an year now. The printer had a few issues 3 months back and once I got it fixed everything was back on track. Last night when I gave a print command the printer screen and the app flashed a message which said, " port error 2147024830 ". I tried resetting the printer but the error message continued to flash, can anyone tell me what is this error and how can I fix it?
