Hi There,

It's difficult to diagnose 'Out of dye film' errors on the Rio 1 printers.
Does your serial number end with NP?

Can you hear the dye film motor running when the lid is closed?
Is the film actually moving? Try marking the rear (full) spool with a pen then closing the lid.
After the error, open the lid to see if it has moved.

While the lid is open, can you see a bright Red LED shining from just below the printhead?

Check that none of the dye film clips are broken.

Open the lid and remove the dye film spools.
Try to turn the small White cog just above the front-left dye film clip.
You should not be able to turn this (due to the gearbox on the motor).
If it turns then you will need to tighten the small grub screw which attaches the gog to the motor shaft.

I hope some of the above suggestions will be of help.

Regards,

MC.

I have a Canon W8200 and i get the error code"


Hello,
Try this:
1) As an error (E02802 or E02805 to E02809) is shown on the display, install the correct
combination of printhead and ink tanks according to the error.
2) Perform ink filling*3 following the installation sequence. After filling ink, when "Load Roll
Media" is shown on the display, turn off the power.
3) Turn on the printer while holding down the ONLINE button, ENTER button, CANCEL button,
and PAPER SOURCE button.
4) Check that "Canon W8200" is shown on the display, and then release the buttons. When
printer enters Reset mode for the dye/pigment model setting, all the LEDs on the operation
panel turn on.
5) "TYPE RESET" is shown on the display.
6) Select "YES", and then reset the dye/pigment model setting in the printer.
When reset is selected, the ink drain sequence is executed. It takes approximately 4
minutes for the process to be completed.
7) Check that "Turn Power Off!!" is shown on the display, and then turn off the power.
8) Unplug the power cord from the outlet.
9) Move the carriage, and then takeout the printhead.
10) Replace the following parts
• Ink tube unit : See "Part 5: 5.2.6 Ink tube unit".
• Purge unit : See "Part 5: 5.2.9 Purge unit".
• Ink tank unit : See "Part 5: 5.2.10 Ink tank unit".
11) Turn on the printer, and then continue with the installation operation (from installation of the
printhead). At this time, replace the printhead with a new one*4.

Hope that helps!

After converting our 60" HP


Have you tried to revert back to the dye inks?
If that solves the problem, then your UV ink tubes have a bad control board.
(you did change the ink tubes system, printheads and ink ?)
If the error code continues, replace the Main PCA.

Ink ribbon or paper roll error. the in ribbon is broken, or the paper roll is jammed. Clear the problem. I put new roll and ink cartridge in and still showing error


Happend twice to me. What sometimes happens is that the paper roll was not changed at the time the ink was. Therefore the paper roll was allowed to remain in the printer until the very last sheet. On the last sheet there is a sticker that says paper out. (stupid idea) This sticker makes the last sheet of paper too thick to fit through the last paper guide / feed. Because of this, the ink film breaks and that specific error message is displayed until that last piece of 4x6 is pulled from the paper feed. Clear that out, and all is good.. Change the paper every time u change the ink.

Ink ribbon was chewed up in my son snap lab and resulted in paper jam. I cleared the jam and repaired the ink ribbon and it still is reading that error. How can I fix this?

You must open up the front where the roll goes. Lay the printer back, and look up top where the paper ejects. you should see some of the paper in the feed. Pull that out with a tweezers.

Beware. I sent my printer to Sony and they tried to get me for a new cutter and thermal head. Close to $500. I then realized the problem because it happened on another unit I own. I told them to ship it back unrepaired and I fixed it myself.
Hope this helps

Large black ink tank is empty but I cannot activate the smaller


This "photo" printer has two separate BLACK inks -- one using vegetable dyes, and one using suspended carbon micro-dots, in order to get the "best-possible" BLACK colour.

Replace the empty cartridge.

System error E007


E007 is a error code for the fuser unit. It means that the fixing film is out of "HP" - most likely the film is torn and needs to be replaced. It will not clear until the problem is fixed.

The cards are sticking


Hi There,

Im_useless:
0.126 is not a Magicard error number. On a Rio 2 printer, the error number will be displayed on the LCD display. It should look like 02:?? or 04:??, etc.

Are the cards feeding out of the hopper?
How far into the printer have they gone before you get the error?
Are any of the dye film panels printed before the card gets stuck?
Are the cards ejected when you click on 'OK'?

Guest:
The most common reason for the dye film sticking to the cards are if they already have overcoat printed on them (you can not print over overcoat). Also, if you are printing very dense images, try selecting 'ColorSure' mode in the printing preferences, Try reducing the YMC printhead power in printing preferences.

Missing dot in all colors


jay,

 

close to the facts:

 

never(!!!!) clean a brother printhead by soaking it into a solution what so ever it contains!

The printhead is a piezo one and totally diffrent from hp or canon bubblejet which heats the ink to print while the brother (and epson) ones have a bi-metal insides which "fires" ink onto paper when needed. The outward cleaning solution will destroy the bimetal and the electric inside the built-in-one printhead.

 

Do use only dye ink for brother printers. In fact there is a filter inside the printhead in front of the nozzels. pigmented ink has particles (which give the color to the "water" where dye ink is already "colored water" without partikles!) which definitley cloggs the filter and therefor the nozzels! The filter cant be cleaned because its part of the printhead.

 

The machine has a counter built in which counts the cleaning cycles of the machine. There are small clying cycles which the machine does by start printing (some 0.5 ml will be waisted) and the manual cleaning cycle started by user which needs a 3ml amount of ink.

The machine has a built in waistinktank like all inkjet printers have. The engineers of brother have set the counter to an amount of taking up cleaning ink that will last for 2.5 - 3 years in normal use (and using original ink!). When the waistinktank has taken up the max of ink the machine will display error:cleaning and refuses to print anymore. The tank has to be replaced and the error (error 46/error:cleaning) has to be deleted within the eeprom.

 

Some solutions:

 

Run the cleaning cycle twice with original brother ink carts placed in the printer. 

 

If you are lucky the nozzels (or filter) will be trouble free again.

 

If you dont see any success the printhead (or partially the filter) is clogged and has to be replaced by a new one. 

 

Do use only (empty) original ink carts with a refill dye ink. Mix it up (:-)) with a trace of printhead cleaning solution by 1:10 for the C/Y/M colors only. You can refill an amount of 11 ml (1 ml cleaning solution + 10 ml ink) into the C/Y/M ones and an ink-only of 20 ml into the bk one.

 

In case the waistinktank is filled up and error sign appears search the forum here for error 46 and buy a new waistinktank as a spare part from a service dealer.
