Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

Please note, a rating is only needed when we are finished.

Can you please remove the power to the printer (so unplug it from the power socket).

Then wait 10 minutes, connect the power again to the printer, turn it on and tell me please if it is now operating correctly.

Let me know the results please

ok, can you try this please

Turn off the printer

Open the cover

Turn on the printer

Wait for print carriage to start moving to the left and let it go past half way

Before print carriage reaches left hand side (but after going halfway across) shut the cover.

Leave the Printer turned on.

does this remove the error?

No, error still there
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.


Unplug the power cable.
Open the printer
Push the whole print head mechanic to the center
While the printer still open, plug the power and turn it ON.
When the printhead still moving and is going to the very LEFT, close the cover.
Wait until its boot up.

Still errors?

Thanks, ***** ***** to take over and don't want you spending more for no reason

It is the internal mainboard that has faulted.

We have ruled out all other causes for this

I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the printer to have this replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.

I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the page, then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
