Question about HP Photosmart 2575 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Error messages on display...

I keep getting an error message on the printers display. "Error:0xc1ab0003 730:lib_micci2_tango.c" What does it mean, and how can I fix whatever is wrong with it? The printer is less than 2 yrs old, and hasn't been used that much. I can't afford to replace it, and would rather fix this one. Thanks for the guidance!

    I tried that, but it didn't cure the problem. Thanks for the info though...

  • Brian Klein Jul 27, 2007

    They told me it was caused by a power surge during a recent thunderstorm. They offered to sell me an upgrade for a discount, and send this one back to them. Unfortunately, I can't afford that right now. I tried to convince them to just send me another unit identical to this one, but they wouldn't do it.

    If I'm not getting that blue error window, then I'm getting another error message saying that the ink cartridges are improper, or there is something wrong with them. But they are brand new, and still well within their expiration dates.

    Any suggestions short of a big f*cking hammer and one good overhead swing? I really would rather fix this one than replace it...

    Yes, same problem, same error message. Went through the steps to try to fix it but the Insert Ink Cartridges prompt never happens. Continued through but ewrror message persistently reappears.

    I have exactly the same problem and doing a power cycle has no effect.  The printer will produce one third of self-test report, then I get the same stupid error.  Printer less than one year old!

Please review the excerpt from HP technical support website Use the instructions below to resolve the issue by restarting the product. 1. Disconnect the Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable from the back of the product, but leave the product turned on. 2. Open the cover of the product and remove the print cartridges. 3. Close the cover and wait for the Insert Ink Cartridges message to display. 4. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product and wait for one minute. 5. Reconnect the power cord. If the product does not automatically turn on, press the Power button. 6. Open the cover and reinsert the print cartridges. 7. Close the cover. If prompted, print a calibration page. 8.

    I do a maintenance and after that, it display me that message. The solution, was to clip on the cable for the print heads. After that, the message dissapear and continue the normal opperation.


    Two thinks happens :

    Or the cable/print heads are off, or
    You have open the cover and have forget to clip on the print heads cable.

    Hope that will help.

Hp 2355 all in one error message

reset to factory defaults, also check the whole printer for paper jams. A paper jam can often casue smaller pieces to get stuck in gears or rollers. The message about opening and closing the lid is how the printer knows you went in to check it and closeing it triggers it to try again. If thers still a jam it will keep giving the message. The fist jam was caused by something, check and make sure there isnt any pieces of plastic broken off inside. If it has a rear access panel, check there also.

SONY LIB-81 Error on LCD screen - Drive Information 51

I think this sounds like the drive is having a issue loading and moving the tape in slot 1.
AIT units are known for having this kind of problem.
Try a cleaning tape and then a new tape fresh out the wrapper for a test backup.

if it fails with a known good tape then its time to send it out for repair

Its a Fimware Error.
Try a Hardware Reset.
-Switch the Printer on
-unplug the powerkable
-press "#" and "6" and plug in the Powerkable.
when the Display shows Initialising or Semi-Full-Reset. release the "#" and the"6".

sometime this is working
