The epson Tm u200 & 220B both printer have the common issue is error LED 2 times blinks, Actually the error technical called HP ERROR(Home position error) ,

The Servicing first need to clean all gear and body parts , and check the belt tension , or any paper parts in inside or check the home position sensor and carriage motor (7.2 ohm or below) and finally apply lubricant , it will work proper....


Thks and regards..

8560 printer shut itself down and will not true back on


The following lists the chain of events that occur when you turn on a printer. You can follow this list as one means of determining if the printer is operating correctly. The exact chain of events depends upon the last power down condition and where the printer has last determined the printhead is positioned, this is stored in non-volatile RAM. The Checklist is the primary reference for troubleshooting power-up problems.

1. Power cord is plugged in and the power switch is turned on:

2. Power supply senses AC line voltage conditions (110 VAC or 220 VAC)

and enables DC voltages. If an overload occurs, the printer turns off the high voltage DC supplies, causing a "blink" effect on the Control Panel LEDs.

3. BIST test flashes the PE LED very briefly at a fast rate until the end of the

next test.

4. The Boot loader performs CPU initialization and RAM test. It then sends

the boot loader version to the serial port.

5. Power-On Self Test (POST) initializes the Control Panel. The Control

Panel LED turns red, green, orange, and then off. The Control Panel LCD then goes black and then clear. The POST version displays on the LCD

and waits two seconds. During this time the operator can press the Back

button to bypass the remaining POST test.

6. Low level Power-On Self Test (POST) diagnostics are performed. The

Control Panel displays status messages as each sub-test is performed.

This test takes about 8 seconds. All LEDs are off during the test.

If POST diagnostics pass, the Control Panel displays the Xerox logo and turns on the green LED.

If the test detects an error, the error message displays on the LCD and the printer flashes the LEDs with a repeating error code pattern.

7. The VxWorks operating system is initialized and engine code is started.

This takes about 15 seconds. The Xerox logo is displayed.

8. Print Engine Self Test (PEST) diagnostics are then performed. These test

the heaters, clutches, motors and solenoids. As each clutch is tested, you hear clicking with four high tones as each motor is tested. This test takes about 30 seconds.

9. The printer now runs the mechanical initialization. The exact sequence
depends on the initial position of the printhead and wiper assembly.

Canon IP5200R printer. Green & red led`s flash 20 times, pause & repeat. print head will not come out of park position on righthand side. Fault occurred while printing a photo error 6500 displayed


Hello!

Error 6500 or green and red flashes 20 times, mean hardware error. Particularly, the Logic Board Assembly

There are two possible fix: first is to reset the printer's waste ink counter and the second is to replace the Logic Board Assembly (part # QM2-2733)
alpug_67.jpg


Reset the Waste Ink Counter:
1) With the printer power turned off, while pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press and hold the
Power button. (DO NOT release the buttons. The Power LED lights in green to indicate that a
function is selectable.)
2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (DO NOT release the Power
button.)
3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button 2 times, and then release both the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and Power LEDs light alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm LED.)
4) When the Power LED lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button 4 times (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and Power LEDs light alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm LED.)

Red Alarm light (and all others) flashes, does not print. Closed properly. Seems to be a small amount of toner left in cartridge.


Go into Test Print Mode
The printer incorporates various test print modes.
Select the test mode you want to use following the steps below;
(1) Turn off the power switch of the printer and check that the front cover is closed.
(2) Turn on the power switch while holding down the control panel button. Press the button
until the Drum LED comes on.
The Drum LED illuminates to indicate that the printer enters into the test print mode.
(3) If you want to execute the test print, release and then press the button again when the
Drum LED comes on.
or
Push "alarm" button : The printer is restored to the factory setting and permanent fonts and macros are cleared.
The printer returns to the ready status after
printing.
If it does not reset, replace the main PCB.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response
Thanks, Joe

The orange lights are flashing, is there something wrong?


Try:



1 Resolution may vary based on printer driver setting. Color ink droplets can be placed with a horizontal pitch of 1/4800 inch at minimum.
2 PPM print speeds are based on the highest speed printer driver mode. Photo print speeds are based on the default mode driver setting using Canon Photo Paper Plus Glossy paper. Print speeds will vary depending on system configuration, interface, software, document complexity, print mode, types of paper used and page coverage. CPM copy speeds based on fast mode setting using plain paper. Copy speeds may vary based on document complexity, copy mode, page coverage and number of copies.
3 USB 2.0 Hi-Speed requires Windows XP, 2000 or Mac OS X operating systems. For Windows 98, Me and Mac OS X v.10.2 to 10.2.6 operating systems, the printer will operate at USB 1.1 specifications.

Epsom TM-U220 Error Codes


From the manual its probably one of this item.
-printer temp is too high

-cover is not properly closed
-print head is not in the correct position
-paper cutter is not in the correct position
-paper jam


Try turning off the printer, remove the power cable, turn it on again for 5 seconds to reset it. Connect back power cable, press the feed button and turn it back on. The printer should do a self test, turn it off and on again after the self test. It should make the red light go away.
