According to Roland Service this is a scan motor deviation error. Roland recommends turning off the power, then clear any media jam that may have occurred, then turn the printer back on. You can also try to clean the encoder strip with an alcohol swab. If this does not help, it can mean that the printers carriage location needs to be re calibrated. If you have already tried this or if the error continues, Roland recommends that you contact your local Roland Service Center. Also, be sure to ask the Roland tech, and see if this is something they can talk you through over the phone to avoid the full service call...

How do I re calibrate?
Expert:  JHawk replied 7 years ago.
Roland recommends to have a Roland tech recalibrate the device, the 0010 code is showing that there is resistance in the carriage tracking and causing the printer to pull too far or possibly does not have enough room to make the movements needed.
