Hi Keith,

Based on your follow up comment it seems likely that something is blocking the printhead from getting back to the resting/cleaning pad and could actually be the resting pad holder itself.

I'd recommend shifting the printhead over to the left out of the way and then shine a strong light down into the area over to the right to see if there's any foreign objects stuck down there or anything similar that's getting in the way.

If the resting/cleaning pad has popped out of its holder, you should be able to push it down and back into place with a little care (and a pair of gloves).

I don't have specifics on the RX650 but some models have a sort of train carriage style connection with a shuttle that moves the pad holder. If that's the case here, you can usually push the pad holder down and under the connector to bring it back up into position...

Hope that's of some help.

Check the voltage and frequency range on the power module.
If the module is meant for 240V at 50Hz, it will not work right at 120V at 60Hz for example.
It may state a range such as 90 - 250VAC 50-60Hz. Be sure that your power falls into that range.

The problem may simply be something that happened in transport though, such as the carriage belt or calibration strip falling off or an ink cartridge is jamming the heads because it fell partially out etc.

Is it JUST reading error, or is it giving an error code as well?
if it's giving an error code, try looking up the code for a better explanation as to what the problem might be.

Do a cleaning several times. If that doesn't do it, then it is time to get a new printer. They are cheap enough and will be cheaper than bringing it to the repair shop.
