The hardware alarm indicated 00002 is indicating a problem with print head movement. More specifically the error is indicating an error when the Carriage Motor has accelerated.
This error can be indicated if there is any thing which may be preventing print head movement, things you can check include;
The printer ribbon is not jammed and is located correctly in the printer,
You can also check to ensure there is no paper jam of loose paper which may prevent print head movement,
You can also check the carriage shaft to ensure it is free from paper dust or any other obstructions.
With the printer powered off, the print head should slide freely across the width of the printer, you can then see if there is any obstruction to the print head.
Clean the carriage shaft, and ensure it is free from any form of lubricant.
Clean the timing strip and ensure it is correctly in place.

Hardware alarm 0253-131-000002-3790-1500 After warmup this flashes on the screen.


The hardware alarm you are seeing on the 2265+ indicates the printer is experiencing a "horizontal task error" ie the printer is not able to move the print head or is not able to detect the print head is moving, things you can check to resolve this problem are;

  • Remove the ribbon from the printer, ensure this is not jammed or damaged
  • Power the printer OFF and try manually sliding the print head from side to side, look out for any objects which may obstruct the movement of the print head (pen lids etc!)
  • Ensure the print head gap is not set to close to the paper, thus jamming the print head
  • Remove the paper to ensure the paper is not restricting print head movement.
  • Clean the Optical Timing Strip that runs under the print head, ensure this is not damaged also.
  • Clean the carriage shaft, this should be FREE from any lubricants WD40 etc and dry running. Remove build up of paper dust etc.

If the problem persists it is likely the printer has developed a fault, check the following

  • Worn or damaged timing strip
  • Worn or damaged carriage shaft
  • Fault timing sensor
  • Faulty carriage motor
  • Damaged print head cable
  • Incorrectly connected print head cable
  • Faulty interconnect board
  • Faulty Main Board

Unfortunatly not enough of the Hardware Alarm Task Number is included in the description to identify the most likely cause of the problem but some things you can check are;

  • Remove the ribbon from the printer, ensure this is not jammed or damaged
  • Power the printer OFF and try manually sliding the print head from side to side, look out for any objects which may obstruct the movement of the print head (pen lids etc!)
  • Ensure the print head gap is not set to close to the paper, thus jamming the print head
  • Remove the paper to ensure the paper is not restricting print head movement.
  • Clean the Optical Timing Strip that runs under the print head, ensure this is not damaged also.
  • Clean the carriage shaft, this should be FREE from any lubricants WD40 etc and dry running. Remove build up of paper dust etc.

    It keeps coming up with an error hardware alarm +0664 +131-- 000003+0381+0673 then you have to turn it off and back on again then it starts printing and then just stops in the middle and comes up...


    The hardware alarm being indicated on the 2280+ indicates the pritner is detecting problems with moving the print head. I would recomend trying the follwoing;

    1. Remove the ribbon from the printer, check this for damage or jamming. A jammed or damaged ribbon may prevent the print head moving. Perhaps try subsituting the ribbon for an alternative.
    2. Check for any paper jams, or other items with may heve been droped into the pritner which may obstruct the print head movement.
    3. With the printer powered OFF slide the print head backwards and forwards it should be free to move with the printer powered off.
    4. Clean the carriage shaft, this is the shaft which the print head moves along. This shaft should be clean of dust and dirt. It should NOT have any oil or other lubricant on it.
    5. Clean the timing strip, there is a thin transparent strip which runs accross the wodth on the pritner next to the carriage shaft, this is the timing strip. Take care not to dislodge this thin strip, clean any dust off this strip.
    6. Check the print head gap to ensure that the print head is not catching on the paper.
    Finaly power the pritner off and back on, the error will not clear untill the pritner has been powered off and back on again.

    Depeninding on your findings after trying the above, if the problem persists, I would recomend checking or perhaps replacing the following;
    • Timing strip
    • Timing station
    • Carriage motor
    • Carriage shaft
    • Ribbon Drive
    all these items can affect the free movement of the print head.

    My cannon BJC-2100 series gives me error 5C00 when trying to print


    The error you are getting refers to the cartridge movement. You need to open the printer so you can see the cartrige and the track it rides on. Make sure that the cartriges can move freely with no obstructions. If the cartridges can move freely and there is nothing blocking the path this will require a pro. If nothing is stopping the movement than another component went out that controls the movement of the heads.

    When I looked up the error online it says this is a cleanig error and just to Make sure no obstructions are blocking the cartridge movement, if not needs service.
