System Error 0a001000000001

Recently had plotter transported to new location. When installed and started-up, all appeared ok. When we tried to print a file the printer begins to prepare the print heads, than after a minute or so, the above error message is dispalyed on screen. It recommends switching on/off to see if this clears the problem.

Unfortunately, it doesn't!

I'd be very grateful for any assistance/advice.

Push OK, CANCEL, BLACK, & COLOR all at once while turning the printer off, turn it back on. I had to do this 2 times to get it to work and then it went through a long period of maintanence before I could print

SOURCE: Ink system failure

I had exactly the same problem with my HP 8230 and tried all the posted sugestions with negative results till I stumbled on this site site offering an update for a different problem but added " also clears many ink system failure messages " I downloaded and installed the update and the printer burst into life and now works perfectly, which proves mine was a software problem not a hardware one. give it a try you might get lucky.

SOURCE: HP j4680 all in one printer constant Paper jam message

Based on encouragement from olsnake above, I fixed it easily. It definitely WAS the encoder wheel (a thin clear plastic disk printed
with timing marks) on the left side of the paper-feed roller, as you look at it from the front. This wheel provides motion feedback to the paper feed control software. If the disk is detached/loose, the device thinks the paper feed roller is stuck or impeded, and thus gives the annoying error.

What I did:
1) Remove the scanner assembly (it comes off with a few screws, and is a totally separate unit; The printer works with it completely disconnected (after it complains that the scanner is malfunctioning). Beware that you don't break off the little control panel. Or you can be safe and remove the one screw holding it on, by prying off the 'HP OfficeJet...One" plastic cover.

2) Once you have removed the scanner assembly:
at the left side you will see three white plastic gears meshed together; the farthest one is covered in a circular black
plastic cover. With some care you CAN remove this cover without any additional screwdriver work.

3) in my case (and most others I bet) the thin disk was detached from the gear to which it should be attached. I just shoved it back on, so it was tightly mated to its white gear. You should also ensure that the clear disk goes through the optical sensor at the bottom (mine was).

4) I did not bother to replace that cover, if you can do it, good for you.

5) Test, and reassemble.

This is about the WORST product engineering imaginable. But I have a working printer again!

What is AppHangXProcB1 in my cutter plotter


What kind of plotter. Reading the error it appears that some process is freezing up. This can be caused by a corrupt print job, bad driver. First step you want to take is to update the firmware on the plotter.

Error 09B207 007A0F4F


Switch the Printer OFF and ON again and wait for the initialization. If the Error code continues to appear, switch the Printer OFF. Remove the EIO Card (if installed) and make sure that the Hard Disk Drive is installed correctly by pushing it firmly inwards and checking that the two installation screws are completely tightened. Switch the Printer ON again. If the error codes 09Axxx or 09Bxxx appear then replace the Hard Disk Drive. If the Error Code disappeared after removing the EIO Card, then switch the Printer OFF and reinstall the EIO Card, making sure that the two installation screws are completely tightened. Switch the Printer ON again. If the Error Code reappears, then the EIO Card could be faulty. Replace the EIO Card. If Error Code 09Cxxx appears after initialization, then replace the Electronics Module. Once the Error Code has been solved, print an Internal Demo Print to make sure that the Hard Disk Drive is functioning correctly. If the Error Code reappears, then use the above information to troubleshoot the problem.

Canon ipf605 paper error


Here is what I've found out by trial and error.
Paper Roll Won't Load:
    -Usually occurs when the roll is less than 50% full
    -Printer will give the error "paper loaded askew"
    To Correct This:
      - Press and hold Stop until Job Cancel comes up on the
      screen
      - Press Menu
      o Scroll Down until Adjust Printer menu comes up
      o Press right side arrow next to OK button
      o Scroll down to Manual Band Adjust and press right side
      arrow again (or select one of the other adjustments)
      - Select Yes and press OK
      - Load paper roll - make sure paper is straight
      - When asked (printer will beep) select Plain Paper and
      press OK
      - Let paper load
      - When printer starts to print press and hold Stop to cancel
      job
      - Paper should now be loaded
      When all else fails load a new roll.
      This would be a temporary solution until the sensor is fixed.

Hello, the plotter should be seen in your print and fax preferences (apple menu, system preferences, print and fax): In the print and fax preferences panel, you can click on "+" at the bottom left of the window, you should see your plotter appear in the window, and click on the "add" button Best regards
