"F1" code clearly indicates that main control board has failed. The possible fix for this kind of problem is you have to replace the faulty circuit board. This is the only solution and you cant repair anything else in this unit when F1 flashes.
Thank you !!
When our Sub-Zero Model 650 quit making ice, and the SERVICE ICE lights started flashing, we called our technician who said, "You can pay me $178 for a service call or have another option - you have 2 seconds to decide. Oops, your time is up, I will decide for you!"
"Open the door and push the REFRIGERATOR UNIT ON / OFF message button; wait 30 seconds and push it again. About 95% of the time, the unit creates the glitch, and you are simply rebooting the computer. If that doesn't work, call me. I hate to take your money to come out to push a button."
IT WORKED! The warning message turned off and the freezer started cranking out ice.
You need to be able to clear the counters in the printer that tell the printer to stop working.
In order to do that you must
1. Turn printer off
2. you must hold down the "Paper Source, Paper Feed, Select Feed, Cut/Eject" buttons all at the sime time while you turn the printer back on.
3. From there navigate through the menues to clear the counter that pertains to you or all.
(Error 00000101 is pertains to the print head motor)
Word of warning -
Those counters can be a pain as they cause the printer to stop working however you do need to get your printer serviced by a tech as soon as you can because the error is a warning, reset the counters lets you finsih a job, but if it goes unserviced too long it will actually break down all togther.
So even after you rest the counters you absolutly must get your printer serviced soon.
Hi Minolta man.
This is a very common message on ALL Epson ink jets. The printer has a "protection" counter inside which monitors the amount of ink pumped into the waste pads in the base of the machine. After a while the counter will hit it's pre-determined limit and light up like a christmas tree and stop you from printing any more.
MANY repair centres will tell you (and I believe even Epson have said) this error is not worth fixing.
Well it is and it's SOOOOooooooo easy.
What you need is a piece of software to reset the counter, some instruction on how to dismantle the printer to get to the waste pads, and more instructions on how to clean the pads.
You can get a rescue kit that offers all this from http://www.TheServiceManualShop.com If you don't see thje one you need listed for your model, drop them an email and they will create one for you. The file is delivered by instant download too, so you can crack right on with the job.
I don't have the solution, mine did the same thing a couple weeks ago, just after buying a lot(15) of cartridges.
I called Epson support, who wanted 10 dollars to talk to me, I talked em out of it. That kind of message means internal error. There is no fix they say, and they offered me discounts on a new printer, but the C42ux is out of production. I'm still trying to learn more to fix it myself.
