Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.
Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.
Unfortunately this error indicates a hardware problem which is considered a "fatal error" and will almost certainly require service. There is no fix or patch that will cure this issue.
This specific error pertains to a scanner pcb fault and/or logic board failure.
The only thing you can try in this case is to reset the machine:
unplug power at the wall outletwait 5 minutespress and hold the power/on button for 60+ secondskeep holding while plugging back in, and for another 60 seconds after, then release
If still on change, it confirms an internal fault, which requires service. Service for these is not practical either, as repairs on your own would be $200-250, while you could buy a brand new machine for half that.
Let me know how the reset goes, and I'll advise on repair/replacement options if needed.
Best regards, ***** ***** for the news,
Yes, please do a test print.
Thank you for trying,. and I"m sorry that did not work for you.
Unfortunately, that would confirm a hardware fault, which would ultimately require repairs, and more realistically replacement. It will cost as much to fix as it would for a new one.
Note that these, like all consumer grade inkjet printers, are designed to be low cost and are essentially disposable after a few years, subsidized by the high cost of ink cartridges. If you wish to have a better quality and longer lasting printer, that comes with years worth of ink up front, consider the Epson ecotank models instead: http://amzn.to/1PpOj0C or http://amzn.to/29x1rin
Alternately, for a more business/commercial grade product that will be rated for a 5 year life, consider a laser printer. Lasers cost more up front also, but a toner cartridge can last for thousands of pages. A black only all in one laser is around $125: http://amzn.to/1JSHOlQ
while a color model is about twice that: http://amzn.to/1n4I7Q5
Do you need more help with this?
