Looks like Epson made a dud batch, that happens with cheap consumer
rubbish^H^H^H^H^H^Happliances. I recently bought a pretty normal
telephone, and the first 2 died with the same fault within hours.
When you get it replaced, insist on the dealer giving you a new one from
a different batch. The dealer mightn't have any so you may have to wait.
