Question about Kodak 6800 Thermal Photo Printer
Tried to change the printer kit today and for some reason the printer gave me the error message which i have put on as my subject any idea's
Mecha error 07 and 08 are malfunctions of the paper feed pinch motor located in the right side of the paper compartment. The paper feed pinch is the first roller to grab the paper when it feeds into the machine. This error is tricky. I will walk you through a few fixes.
The first fix is to just power cycle the printer and try to reload the paper. Occasionally the pinch arm will end up in the wrong position due to the printer stopping because the ribbon was empty.
The second fix is to check and make sure that the sensor arm is reaching both sensors on the motor. Sometimes the arm binds on the metal plate inside the paper compartment causing it to not reach the sensor.
The third fix is to start replacing parts. The two things to start with would be the sensors and, although rare, the motor itself. After those are ruled out the only other options are the wiring harness running from the sensors to the junction board, the junction board itself, the power cable running from the junction board to the controller board, and then finally the controller board itself.

I found the above advise helpful! Upon inspection of the paper feed area, I found that the last person loaded the paper incorrectly. All I had to do was adjust the roller and "SHAZAAMM!", all better. Thanks! I would check this first before making calls into Kodak and having them start replacing parts that cost far too much.
