Pick up the printer. Look at the back or underneath. Find serial
number. Write down serial number. It helps if someone else writes down
the serial number otherwise you'll drop the printer when you try to
write the number down. ...

Looking at the eeprom listing I can't see any locations for serial
number, so I guess that they aren't stored in the printers memory.
I doubt that they would produce individual chips with different
serial numbers for each printer, they probably just stick a label on
so they can identify the batch and date of production.

NOW has anyone the Epson service utilities listed in the
component level repair manuals, the manuals with the schematics,
waveforms, and component listings? These will talk to the eeproms
and allow full setup for things like head skew and so on after a rebuild.

Keep trying.
Personally, I'd do what he suggested and type in the number.
However if you are a civil servant with all the time in the world and all the
taxpayers' money, wait till a solution is found or until you retire, whichever
comes first.

Then you're going to be waiting for a long time. Hell freezes over
springs to mind...
