System error "E000"

Reset the device when it does not respond. If the device does not respond, disconnect and then reconnect the power cord. At the device or at the electrical outlet, disconnect the power cord or adapter. Wait approximately ten seconds and then reconnect the power cord. Wait until the device has completed its cycling process before submitting another job request. If this doesn't work try reseting If all else fails I would suggest taking it to a qualified service center. Hope this helps:) Jason

Solution : Power OFF the Printer, Wait 45 Seconds, Then Power ON CAUTION: If the machine is powered OFF / powered ON, all information that is stored in the machine's memory may be erased.
NOTE: Before powering OFF, make sure that all copy or print jobs have completely finished. Never power OFF in the following instances:
  • While data is being received.
  • While jobs are being printed.
  • While jobs are being copied.
  • While a scan is being executed.
  1. Power OFF the machine. The power switch is located on the front right side of the machine under the Control Panel.

    NOTE: Before the machine is powered ON again make sure the Touch Screen is blank.

  2. Power ON the machine.

    NOTE: When the power is ON, a 'Please wait...' message will be displayed. This message indicates that the machine is warming up and cannot be used. After 45 seconds, the machine becomes ready for use.

    If the issue is not resolved repeat steps 1 and 2 a second time.
