Printer show E 2 7.
The E27 code means that the waste ink absorber is full. You'll need to clean the absorber pads and reset the error code. Here's how:
The absorber pads are on the right side of the printer, under the ink cartridges.
With the printer on, lift the top to expose the cartridges. They will
automatically move out of the way (you can move them to the left by hand if the printer is off). You might need a flashlight
to see the pads - each is positioned in a rubber retainer.Take the pads out of the retainers
with tweezers and clean them with warm water. If there is ink in the rubber retainer, wipe it out with a paper towel. Finally, put the clean pads back into the
If the printer does not realize that the absorbers are clean, it may still give you the error code - here's how you reset it:
1)With the printer powered off but connected to a power source, hold down the Stop/Reset button and press Power (the power light should light up).
2) When the Power is lit, hold down the power button, and press the Stop/Reset button two times (then release both - the printer should enter service mode.
(Waiting for menu selection)
3) Press the Stop/Reset button 4
times to reset the waste ink counter.
4) Turn off the printer, and turn it on normally. That should do it.
