The Datamax I4308 returns a position fault error if it cannot sense the label gap where its supposed to be, or if the sensor returns a value outside the permitted range. Re-calibrate to correct the error.

  1. Cycle the printer's power.
  2. If the problem persists follow the procedure below.
Check the following for evidence of fault or damage: Home Position Sensor Adjuster. Home Position Sensor. SNS Harness: is there any damage or misalignment? The rest of my steps can only be done in Technician's Service Mode and should only be done if you are qualified to service this machine.

head cleaning fault, you need to remove the option for head cleaning.

purging operation.
The fault part may be:
- Sheet feed unit (QM2-2916)

you better contact a tech because it is not that simple to fix if you have no tech expirience.

Fault/error 6A00 for my canon MP830 flash light and no paper (fault) roller defect can I fix this ? John

6A00 is AP position error.Possible problems in:
- Sheet feed unit (QM2-1220)
- Logic board assembly (QM2-1520)
First, make sure there is no paper jam anywhere in the machine.. look inside, rear, where the paper tray (output) is, etc to see if you find any shreds or torn paper that may have gotten stuck and you didn't see.Look carefully in the zone of Purge unit, using flashlight in the right side on printer.If this not help your printer need service.

Error : e051

This error occured when -

The home position cannot be detected after the horizontal registration signal has been sent.

because -

1.The horizontal registration sensor (PS10) has a fault
2. The Horizontal registration motor (M9) has a fault.
3. The DC controller pcb has a fault.

To solve first check sensor & motor

try this
The following functions will generate a Tech Rep Fault:
  • Error: 30: Belt Home Too long
  • Errors: 12, 13, 14, 15: ATC-YMCK Sensor Fail
  • Errors: 40, 44: Fuser Main/Sub Lamp Temp Too High
  • Enter Service Diagnostics
  • Highlight NVRAM Access and press OK
  • Highlight Clear Tech Rep Faults and press OK
  • Highlight the Tech Rep fault to be cleared and press OK

If you have had the error 3 consecutive times , you do need to send the snippet to the printer to clear the error. The instructions how to do it are in the download.
Other things. You may need to replace the accumulator belt.
You may have toner backed up in the waste auger, you can clean that out and replace the waste bottle.
The plastic tab attached to the cleaning blade assembly was broken, this tab opens the cleaning blade waste assembly when the belt is lowered .
Solution: thumbsup.gif Fixed! thumbsdn.gif Did not fix. The waste toner from accumulator belt cleaner could not reach the waste bin and jammed the augur. This caused the grinding noise by stalling the accumulator belt motor. This causes an error 30 code to be displayed.
The belt cleaner does come as a separate part 016-1889-00 and is very easy to fit and much cheaper than a new belt assembly.
Error 30 is a Tech Rep fault. After three Error 30's, the NVRAM Clear Tech Rep Faults will need to be reset to be able clear the Error 30 message.
