Message from printer is "unable to clean" and will do nothing else. I've done the recommended maintenance service and get the same message.

- Machine off
- Switch on the machine while holding down the “menu”button until all the leds are flashing on/off. Now you are in “maintenance” mode.
- press 80
- press the “mono start” button several times until you see “purge: xxxx”
- press “2783” in order to reset the purge counter. You will see: “purge:0000”
- press the "stop" button.

Yay, the real answer. Be careful to have clean hands when touching the decoder strip or you may damage it and then you will need to replace it.
