Question about Itochu C.itoh CI 5000 Matrix Printer

1 Answer

Home Error Hi, I have a C.Itoh 5000 Printer, am receiving Home Error. Carridge is not returning to home position. This printer was monunted in a vehicle with a power converter There was a problem with the converter before the error occured. I swapped the printer chassie with a known good chassie and still received the error. There is a very good chance the main board took a 'hit' but I can find no burnt componants. All other systems seem to be working from control panel (I can change settings...) Is there a way to check/change out the home sensor? The manual I have, from C.Itoh, is no help. Thanks in advance, GTW

A21 Home Error refers to the printhead not moving. Most cases, it is due to the fuse being blown on the main logic board. You have to remove the top cover. Open the clear cover, pop out the plastic pins, remove, then pull off the tractor knob on the right, remove the two screws at the top back of the printer, lift up the cover from the back towards the front. You will have to unplug an electrical connect ribbon from behind the control panel. Check the fuse and replace if necessary.

Printer ar168D Error L1-00


The L1-00\r\n error indicates the scanner didn't return to it's home position or is locked and can't leave the home position. There is a lock switch (designed to lock scanner into place for safe transport) located to the left of the copier and just under the scanner. It's a plastic dial that needs to be turned to the "unlock" position. Once done, your problem should be fixed.

How do you perform a self test printout on the Citoh 5000


Turn the printer on, press the ONLINE button to take it offline. Press and hold the RESET button and press the QUIET/SETUP button. This puts the machine in configuration mode. Now press the FWD LN FEED button once or twice, then press the ONLINE button. This will cause the printer to print the current settings

Check flatcable connection to main circuit board:

Open cover and release the "Z" cover (right side) which hides the flatcable. Simply stick the cable to mainboard.

Xerox printer error code (04,025.46)


This is a print head position issue.

TRY FIRST (Solutions without parts):
1. Check that the wipe mechanism has homed. 2. Check the printhead position and verify that it has initialized properly / manually home the printhead and power cycle the printers power and check for the error to return. If not then the error was most likely due to non-process function (something out of sequence).
Part likely to be the cause:
GEARBOX AND MOTOR,PROCESS DRIVE - PL 4.0, Item 14.

Did you check the lines per page setting on the printer? For normal 11" length forms, the setting should be 66lpp.
