I think the encoder strip needs to be cleaned with a lint free cloth. If the encoder strip gets dirty, many different problems can occur.

If the machine still errors, the encoder strip needs to be replaced - Part Number LS4467001
If the machine still errors, replace the carriage PCB assembly - Part Number LS6543001
If the machine still errors, replace the Printhead - Part Number LK3211001
If the machine still errors, replace the Main PCB assembly - Part Number LT0284011

3. Using MONO START, just press it until the word "PURGE XXXXX" comes out.
4. Using arrow up button look for the following:
a. 2 then press SET
b. 7 then press SET
