SOURCE: error code printer check ** 343
the error is "Waste Ink Tank Full" error
This error occurs after a set number of nozzle activations, and it's to protect you from having ink start leaking out of your printer.
The waste ink tank is actually a large cotton pad in the bottom of the machine which absorbs the waste ink, and if this pad becomes full, the ink will pool and, like water, seek the path of least resistance, which could be where the case parts connect, and then leaking out onto your desk or carpet...
Resetting the Waste Ink Volume Counter
1) Enter SERVICE MODE.---
By pressing Menu Copy Copy Copy Scan
2) Select TEST MODE.
3) Select  PRINTER TEST in TEST MODE.
4) Select 3. [EEPROM CLEAR].
5) Select 0. [INK COUNT].
6) Press the [Set] key.
7) Press the [Stop/Reset] key (returning to the state of 3)), and then press the [ON/OFF] key.
hope it works for your model
Hope it helps.

It seems the home position sensor is out of whack or the mylar band behind the print cartridge carriage is missing or broken.
To find the mylar piece look for a clear 6mm x 460mm clear piece of plastic with black markings (like a gradient) on both sides.If you find it you can try and place it back by looking for an extended eyelet on both sides of the stell print carrier.
Most people in haste to change ink have the hand slip and it becomes dislodged.

SOURCE: What does ##343 mean?
##345 is jammed cartridge error. Reasons could include:
-Foreign material or dried ink in head cleaning unit (also known as "purge unit") , or waste ink pump jammed up. Make sure waste ink pump rotates freely, after cleaning. Clean the waste pump-hose too! Waste ink pump is located under head cleaning system.
-Grinding noise (very loud)
-Flashes error code ##345
1.Take apart and wash the ink clogged mechanical parts. Use hot water.
2. Reset waste ink counter
The following operation takes several hours / days to complete.
-Take apart the whole printer, so there is only a metal frame left, with couple of paper-rollers, and motors, and the "Print-head cleaning" -system. Wash this cleaning-system.
-Mark all wires that look the same (especially white flat ones), take photographs when disassembling.
In detail, remove at least following items:
-Main Power lead!
-Casing (Use bright flashlight to see TWO front cover-screws under the dark plastic!)
-Scanner (BEWARE of fragile flat-wires)
-Main electronic controller board
-Metal plate, plastic cover, and some others.
-Plastic base plate
-All materials that might absorb water. (two sponges, and one rubber foam part)
The two sponges are between metal frame and base plate, they absorb excess ink. Wash these separately, and dry, or change for new. (I left the shorter one out, when assembling)
There is also one long rubber foam part that is near where paper comes out, (visible from outside the printer, when cover is opened).
To get rid of the excess ink: Wash dirty parts heavily for 10 to 15 minutes with hot water. When out-coming water is clear, then it is clean.
-Let it to dry for couple of days, but you can use your imagination - compressed air could help it dry faster.
-Assemble it back together
How to reset waste ink counter (you should clean the printer also):
*AF-Key = Additional Functions key = the black button with the star in a head above it.
1) Enter SERVICE MODE. (Press AF-Key, followed by "scan", "copy", "scan" -Keys)
2) Select TEST MODE (press right arrow button 13 times).
3) Hit -OK-
4) Select  PRINTER TEST
5) Hit -OK-
6) It'll now say "- 8-2 +" press the right arrow key once to get "- 8-3 +"
7) Hit -OK-
8) Select 0. [INK COUNT].
9) Hit -OK-
10) It should return to showing the "8: Printer Test - 8-3 +"
11) Press the [Stop/Reset]key - (black key with triangle and circle on it) - (returning to the state of 4), and then press the [ON/OFF] key.
Cleaning the print head:
At any time, DO NOT wipe the actual print head with your fingers. Use ONLY water.
-Remove print head assembly from printer.
-Remove ink tanks.
-Use running warm water, wash away the excess ink that is dried around the print head.
-Take one disposable mug, fill with hot water, drop the print head assembly in there, and let it soak for an hour, or so.
(-IF you have massaging shower head, with spray jet -function, use this to deep clean the actual print head.)
-Dry it up carefully, do not wipe actual print head, just tap gently with soft paper.
-Install ink tanks, install assembly to printer, let it settle for some time (5-30 minutes)
-Run Nozzle check, cleaning, print head alignment.
This should do the trick.
