I may be a bit late with this but it worked for me. Uninstall your antivirus, remove any parental controls and disable your firewall. Then, reinstall the printer and download a 2008 version of your anti virus and re-enable your firewall. I haven't reactivated the parental controls just in case it all goes pear shaped.

You need to carefully clean the encoder strip. It's the clear strip behind the carriage that runs all the way from right to left. A damp Q-tip should remove any grease or fingerprints.

SOURCE: Printer status -- Printer power off Communication error/printer mismatch

Had this exact problem after motherboard smoked and transferred hard disks to a new system. The printer installed fine on a different machine which was comforting, and would be a good test to run.

Turns out deleting the printer isn't enough. Wound up reinstalling the driver. That's a pretty obvious next step but the 1350W driver installer apparently does things its own way so if the windows add new hardware wizard comes up you MUST cancel it. Not sure which of these steps are required and which are not, but here's what I did to the best of my recollection ;-)

0) Turn off the printer.
1) Delete the printer (all instances of 1350W) in printers and faxes.
2) In add/remove programs delete the Konica Minolta application.
3) Reboot (this was always a key step in Win98 reality, not sure if XP requires but it can't hurt.)
4) Turn on the printer. If at any time the add new hardware wizard comes up, just say no.
5) Run setup from the driver CD. If you don't have the CD you can get it from KonicaMinolta or CNET (download.com).
6) For me it defaulted to LPT1 but I chose USB001 from the list.
7) If it throws an "error adding service" message don't panic. That may be why there was a problem to begin with (the error, not necessarily the panic.) This happened to me but clicked OK and after several seconds the installer resumed. Next thing I knew was prompting me to add paper.

The error message (for Googling purposes) was:

Error Adding Service
Name: MLPTDR_Q
File: MLPTDR_Q.SYS
Dependencies: +Parallel arbitrator
Load Order Group: Extended base
dwServiceType: 1
dwStartType: 2



Hope this makes someone's day.

E733-0000
Error code : Printer communication error Communication error between the Engine Controller PCB and the Main Controller PCB occurred.
Try turning off the device, unplug power cable and turn on to flush the memory. Change the power cable as well. If this doesn't resolve the issue, probably something is loose in the board. Contact your support.

Command error on epson 9600


Are you sure it is a 'command error' and not a 'communication error'. I could not find anything on a 'command error' but did find this on a 'communication error'.


Q: Why am I getting a communication error when I try to print?

A: Check the following if you are getting a communication error when printing:

Make sure the type of driver you installed matches the ink type in the printer. Verify the ink type by checking the part number on the ink cartridges.

Make sure the printer interface setting matches the connection type you're using. By default, the printer interface should be set to Auto, which supports all connection types.

Check the physical cable connection and make sure the cable is not be longer than 10 ft. You may want to replace the cable.

You may also get communication errors if the printer name is not set correctly. Contact EPSON at (888) 377-6611 or (562) 276-1305 to get instructions on how to verify this.


You might want to check to see if you have the current drivers for your printer and operating system; a new driver can be downloaded here.

Trust this is helpful.

Keep getting the error message "Printer not responding".


How are you connecting the printer to the computer? (USB, parallel, ethernet) Make sure there are no error messages/lights blinking and that the unit is on.

If you are using an USB cable, try a new cable. Also try a direct connection if you have a USB hub or print server in use. Make sure the USB ports are active (not disabled for power saving or security). Test the port with a known working device.

If you are using the parallel cable, make sure it is properly secured. Also try a new cable. Again try a direct connection instead of a print server.

If you are using an ethernet connection, again try a new cable. Check if your firewall is blocking communication with the printer. (Test this by temporarily turning off the firewall. If it starts working, make the printer a trusted part of the network. With some firewalls, you may need to unblock communication for both incoming and outgoing communication with the printer.)

I hope this helps.

Ink is out and communication error has occured?


Sounds suspiciously like a Windows problem to me. It may be worth trying to reinstall the printer. Delete the old one in 'Printers', and then reload from XP or Vista, or shove the printer CD-ROM in and reinstall.

Epson r230 general error


Blink alternately or not? If alternately, the message is not "general error". but "service required" It's true to reset waste ink counter. But, i think it's not service required. when trun on printer ready? But when start to print red lights blink at same time? Problem with chip at ink tank. Check connector at chip and at head carriage. It's may be dirty, and not good connection. try to use another chip.

Do the following:

Try a different usb cable.

Plug the cable into a different USB port.

Try disconnecting printer power cable for ten minutes.

Unplug computer power cord for ten minutes and restart.

Reinstall printer drivers.

If that all did not work, test the printer on a different computer, to find out if it is faulty or not.
