Re: 55 error service

The 55 error doesn't boil down to one specific problem and most information will tell you the following: 55 ERROR (Internal Communication Problem) 1. Replace DC Controller PCA. 2. Replace Formatter PCA. 3. Replace both at same time. So sounds alot like the main board is starting into a nose dive, but seeing as that particular printer is on the older side, you might be able to find the part on the cheaper side, check out e-bay, they have some HPIII part around. Good luck.

I changed the Label Roll in my Zebra QL 220 Plus. After I turn on the printer it prints labels continuously and on the screen it shows "Extended Two Key". How do I get rid of this problem?

Extended two key means one of the buttons by the LCD are sticking and not releasing, you use the two key sequence to print a device configuration but if you hold in the buttons for too long r they are sticking that's when you get the extended two key error.

Loading roll paper printhead path type 1

Switch on & observe the carriage behavior for hitting right ot left frames. Clean encoder with dry cloth to avoid ink marks on it & also check for damages.. if found replace it, check..
Enter in to service mode, scroll to carriage test, enter. Check for the result, if its failed, replace it..
Entering in service mode: Power off the printer by using through front panel power switch. Hold the color key switch on the printer using power switch mounted on front panel.Wait till "initializing" appears release the button, you can observe "service test" on panel scroll to carriage test> enter.
I hope you can solve the issue..

Ink ribbon or paper roll error. the in ribbon is broken, or the paper roll is jammed. Clear the problem. I put new roll and ink cartridge in and still showing error

Happend twice to me. What sometimes happens is that the paper roll was not changed at the time the ink was. Therefore the paper roll was allowed to remain in the printer until the very last sheet. On the last sheet there is a sticker that says paper out. (stupid idea) This sticker makes the last sheet of paper too thick to fit through the last paper guide / feed. Because of this, the ink film breaks and that specific error message is displayed until that last piece of 4x6 is pulled from the paper feed. Clear that out, and all is good.. Change the paper every time u change the ink.

My hp photosmart 8250 keep showing paper jam but there's no paper jam anywhere. How can I get it to function properly?

Make sure there is no paper stuck inside in the paper. may be there is small piece of paper stuck inside
Just unplug the power and open the cover and remove the toner or cartridges from the printer and manually try to roll the roller and remove the paper.
Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Have a good day.

Make sure you inserting the paper not deep inside just insert and stop it when you feel any resistance .and try to print something. If it is print then well otherwise you have to show it service center.

Reload Paper constantly shows up

This printer is very finicky about paper loading. I see this error most commonly when using auto-cut roll paper. If the paper edge is not cut perfectly straight, and it is not inserted into the printer perfectly strait, it will give you an error. When it does this, you can simply load the paper and press "cut" instead of "pause" when it says "press pause" and it will cut the paper straight. You can also set it to "Roll Paper Manual Cut" and load the paper, then set it back to "Roll Paper Auto Cut."

Make sure to clean all the rollers you can see and make sure to check the paper sensor, and clean all rollers and paper paths with some Isopropyl Alcohol (AKA rubbing alcohol)

2410 Malunction

This problem always hits after a power interruption. On another site I read the solution is to open the back and roll or move the paper wheels back and forth a few times. This worked for me.
