Common Error Codes
00000101 The CR Motor reached it's end of life. 00010000 PF Encoder Check Error. 00010005 CR Motor is out of step. 00010014 Pressurising failure. 00010027 Pressure pump micro air-leak error. 00010040 Printing position error. 0001002D The cleaning unit reached it's end of life. 0001003F The Pressure Motor reached it's end of life.

Servicing Levels

Three levels of servicing are available and detailed below:
  1. Basic 0040 or 0001002D maintenance procedure: This will return your printer from either the 0040 or 0001002D error to a working state by replacing only the relevant maintenance items.
  2. Advanced 0040 / 0001002D maintenance procedure: As well as replacing the parts relating to the maintenance error additional adjustments such as bidirectional/unidirectional alignment, 980mm feed adjustment, firmware updating and a general clean will be performed.
  3. Overhaul: All maintenance items as well as the PF, CR motor and belt, cutter cap, pressure assembly and cutter solenoid will be replaced. A check for any design defects such as a defective cutter cap and a defective pressure lever will be performed and any parts will be replaced if necessary. All head and feed alignments will be performed as well as any required software updates and sensor verifications. A thorough clean will also be performed on the carriage area and the print head. When the procedures are complete a survey will be performed to better understand your requirements and any recommendations will be brought forward.
info.gifIt is recommended that if you have recently come into ownership of a second user Epson Stylus Pro 9800 then you should assume that the counter values or service life levels are incorrect and choose the most thorough procedure detailed above. The reason for this is an increasing number of printers being "reset" without the actual parts being replaced or inexperienced owners trying to repair or replace parts incorrectly. In one such case a part was removed and replaced incorrectly causing a serious ink leak which was luckily caught early due to the undertaking of an thorough maintenance procedure, but unfortunately extensive damage had already been caused to the chassis and maintenance tank area.

I copied the error code and put it in the search bar in a web browser and came up with the answer. In the future just google the codes and see what comes up. Also you can download a Field Repair Guide PDF and a Manual PDF from Epson's website too.

after cleaning print heads,which were causing poor print quality,i get an error message ...ink cartridges cannot be recognized. i am using after market cartridges,but have used them before with no issues. how can i get them to be recognized


Head cleaning procedure consumes a lot of ink. Ink level counter run too. So, after some head cleaning ink level counter reach zero level (ink out/empty level). Ink tank can not use again even there are ink at tank actually, because chip reach zero level. Reset chip using hardware resetter and you can refill ink tank.
