Epson 10000cf 00020000 error how to fix??

I have a epson 10000cf 44" archival printer..I transported the printer, later plugged it in and all the lights are flashing. Cannot get anything out of the printer besides flashing lights. I have the service manual, and it describes NVRAM fatal error. This RAM I'm guessing holds the printer bios. I wonder by removing and replacing the battery on the board would reset the NVRAM. If not how can I get past the flashing lights and reset the NVRAM. And by the schematic I can't determine if the the NVRAM is on the mainboard or the drive board. The mainboard is around $300 to replace, and the drive board is around $1000 to replace. Any ideas. Maybe does anyone know if there's a place I can send the board to be fixed?? I am a small printing business, and this is taking a big hit on me right now..Anyone have any logical ideas?? Also can't figure out how to load new firmware without the access ??? Help!!

    I have an epson stylus 7000 with the same error. From my point of view there is no way to fix it short of replacing the main board.

If you are getting that error try this

Check to make sure the locking bracket and screw have been removed from the print head.

Turn off the printer.

Open the lower cover on the front of the printer and remove the bracket and screw holding the print head in place.

Close the printer cover and turn on the printer.

The Pause light, begins flashing and the printer starts charging the ink delivery system.

If a different error then update me, thanks!!

If the error is fatal then there is NOTHING you can do at home to sort the problem out. If Epson are refusing to repair the unit because you have repeatedly used non genuine ink then you can try and take them to task on the legality of that decision (depending upon consumer law in your area) but the chances of you getting it sorted without costing a fortune are slim to none.

There is an error which shows up in the status monitor as MAINTENANCE error and this can fixed relatively easily. It's symptoms are similar. However, a fatal error is generally just that - Fatal - and there is nothing the home user can do as this generally requires parts fitting.

Your non genuine ink is almost certainly NOT to blame for the fatal error though. At worst the **** ink you use will clog nozzles and may even ruin the print head by clogging all the nozzles and causing only blank pages to be produced. BUT can you prove this to Epson in court?

My advice - bin the printer and replace it with one from a manufacturer who appears to give a damn about their products and customers as much as their fat pockets!!

Service required mean waste ink counter overflow. You need to reset it. SSC Service utility don't work with this type. The resetter is not for free, it's commercial. Only some distributor have it.

Please how can I solve the error code 0001001b when I turned on my EPSON STYLUS PRO 10000CF

I would go to menu and do a nozzle check, a power clean and head alignment, after you unplug the machine wait a few and then re-power.

If they do not perform try resetting the cartridges and if noting then it's due to a print head error. It needs to be replaced, send to repair.

Epson stylus pro 10000, Service Req. 000100006 what this means? When I turn on the printer, it stop in 2,30 second and show this message.

Check inkcartridges.
You can snap off the cover plate carefully, under it you will see a plastic film that is heat welded to the housing. look for damages.
If it seems okay, take a small rubbertube that fits the small nozzle next to the ink outlet. blow into it gently.
if theres air coming out somewhere or the plastic film is broken:
Fix it with some strong tape or replace the cartridge.

Epson Stylus Pro 10000CF As soon as we start printing, the head travels then returns to its starting point, stops printing and displays :"out of paper" ???? Thanks in advance for any help.

Take a look at the service manual, I think you'll find a solution there..

Is possible printing with eco solvent inks on epson stilys pro 10000cf, Thanks, Dragan

The 10000cf only takes Dye or Pigment type ink cartridges. Eco-solvent ink is a newer technology that is not compatible with this printer.

Just purchased an Epson Stylus Pro 10000 Archival Ink. Nosel check looks good with solid lines, however prints are very light. Ran clean multiple times. Printer came with existing ink and I don't know if...

Old ink loses some of its intensity after about 8 months.
heat/light seems to destroy some of the depth in the ink's shade. i would be completely replacing the cartridges with fresh ones. Constant cleaning uses up so much ink and the casettes will need replacing too often. This raises the cost of your prints.
