Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, 0080 error is a scan motor fault; "...This is a scan motor over current error where a light load is put on the motor movement over a long period of time. Turn the power off, clear any media jam that may have occurred and turn the printer back on..."

Proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • check/clean the encoder strip;
  • • check/tighten the head carriage.

All others would require working inside the Service Menu.

Thanks Louie, are instructions on checking/tightening the head carriage readily able to be found on the internet?
Expert:  Louie replied 1 year ago.

Not sure if readily available but should be relatively easy as it needs an Allen key/wrench. To my recollection, a 3mm or 4mm.

All others would require the use of a Service Manual as guide for checks in the Service Menu.
