Internal parts out of date

When I tried to print a document I got an error message saying something like "internal parts out out of date, return printer to supplier". Both lights started, and continue, to flash. I tried reloading the driver software to no avail.

    The actual error message was "Parts inside your printer are at the end of their service life. See dealer for replacements" The red light is continuously flashing and the printer refuses to work.

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.

My HP 4100tn will not print and I am getting error message as follows: 82.0180 EIO 2 ERROR I printed a document and then when I tried to print another document I got the error message. How can I fix...


Thank you for contacting FixYa with your printer inquiry.

This is an error caused by the jet direct card in your printer, try one of two things.
  1. Move the Jet Direct card from port 1 to port 2 on the printer.
  2. Replace your jet direct card with one that you know is good.

Test to see if either of these resolves the issue.

The problem is usually a faulty card.

Spectralink PTB400 internal error


Correcting Spectralink Errors Below are instructions on performing a “soft test” which will correct any internal error 8 and 4444-444C messages on your Spectralink phone. To aid you in educating your staff you may view the following Word document showing the step-by-step instructions. Please feel free to print and post this document where the Spectralink phones are kept on your floor. Soft Test Instructions
  1. Power off the phone.
  2. Press and HOLD the volume key (VOL) and the power key at the same time (the phone will chirp and display the serial number.)
  3. Now…release ONLY the power key (phone will vibrate and make a long tone.)
  4. Now release the volume key (the display will have a lot of black boxes and ZZZZ’s – you will also see the bottom of the display showing “msg”, “bat”, etc.)
  5. Count to three and then power off the phone.
This “soft test” is to correct only certain internal error messages. When the phone is experiencing a correctable error the display will read “internal error 8” or “internal error 4444-444C”. For all other internal errors the phone will need to be taken to Teleservices, NE-165 to be replaced.

Computer restarts after trying to print. Internal error - false


Sounds like you have a virus on your computer.

Go to download.com and get Malwarebyte's Anti-malware program. (free)

Install it, update, and then run it.

Be sure your anti-virus and Windows updates are done, too.

I
have a HP Deskjet F4235. When I try to scan a paper it says \'an error
occurred while communicating with scanning device\'. I didn\'t put in the
ink cartilage for printing. Do you think that is the problem? How can I
solve this problem?
Best Answer: Try updating the driver for your Deskjet. driver updates seem to be needed/ otherwise sounds like a connection prob/ not software really.

Unable to clean ... Brother MFC 3240C


Machine Error 46, Purged Ink Box Full

The machine counts all purge (cleaning) operations in order to prevent the internal ink absorber box from overflowing with purged ink. An initial purge, for example, advances the purge counter by 187 420 = 607. When the purge counter approaches 6400, an internal "Machine Error 46" is generated. Further purge operations are prohibited, and therefore the printer becomes unusable.

When an internal Machine Error 46 is generated, the user will see an "Unable to Clean" external message and will be unable to use the printer. The "Unable to Clean" external message can relate to many different internal error codes however.

The user can establish the internal Machine Error Code as follows: unplug the unit, hold down the Menu/Set key, re-insert the power plug while holding down the Menu/Set key. The internal Machine Error Code will be displayed. Unplug and re-plug the unit again before continuing to the steps below.

If there is a Machine Error 46, it is necessary to dismantle the printer, replace the ink absorber box (or possibly break the ink absorber box open and clean its absorbent sponges under a tap), re-assemble the printer and reset the purge counter to zero.


Resetting purge counter:

1) Enter machine maintenance mode (on MFC210C all four photo/copy/fax/scan lights flash in maintenance mode). Care is needed in maintenance mode, otherwise critical settings may be inadvertently corrupted.

FAX models with numerical keypads: Press the Menu/Set, *, 2, 8, 6 and 4 keys within two seconds. (if you fail to complete the correct key sequence within two seconds, press the Stop key to try again).

Other (non-FAX) models: Press the Menu/Set and Black Start keys. Next press the up arrow key four times to enter the maintenance mode).

2) Press the 8 then 0 keys in the initial stage of the maintenance mode to call up the machine's log information list (function code 80).

3) Press the Black Start key several times to scroll through the log information list to reach the purge counter. The purge counter is the 25th item in the list.

4) Press the 2, 7, 8, and 3 keys in this order to reset the purge count to zero.

5) Press the Stop/Exit key to return to the initial stage of the maintenance mode.

6) Press the 9 key twice to return to the standby state.

INTERNAL ERROR--FALSE


My printer was able to print an "INTERNAL ERROR - FALSE, Position: 0x1227e (74366)" error message as well as a test page, but not documents sent to print.

However, the problem was fixed once I switched to another USB port as the person above mentioned. So for any other people with similar problems, try that! In addition to power cycling the printer (I did that first)

CX6600 error message


I suspect that a bit of gum may have traveled elsewhere into the printers internals. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful.

Just turning the printer off, pausing for 30 seconds, then turning it back on should reset it, but I'm sure you have already tried that.
