The printer/scanner and copier were working fine for about 2 months then this happened one day during a print job.
I am sorry to hear you are having problems with your printer.
You error code seems to indicate that your encorder strip is twisted or has some debris on spot on it which will make the unit will malfunction. You may need to take it to a service center if you do not have any experience in dissasembling your unit as this will bee needed to reeat your strip.
If you wish to do it your self...
1) Lift cover. Remove the two plastic panels covering wires. Mark down position of cables then remove them, and remove the now-freed top scanner section entirely.
2) Remove screws from top plastic shell. There's two in the back and four in the front. There's also two plastic tabs in the front that must be bent aside before you can remove the top shell. Dont break tabs!
3) Gently put the encoder strip back in its plastic guide.
reassemble and power it up. You should be good now.
I hope this helps. If you need any further information, or more help please let me know.

I am not sure what an encoder strip is. I have the printer open
Check back in about 15 minutes and i will post some pic for you.
I am sorry, I can not get the pics to work correctly. The encoder..You will probably see a plastic guide the has a strip hanging out of it. It happens sometimes after major paper jam. The piece is under the plastic shell, which is under the scanning assembly.
