I have a officehet printer 7520 that is saying General Printer error 0x61011bed.how will i fix that issue


If unit is under warranty HP will help you for about a year. After one year they have a get bent attitude and you will have to "google" the error code and see what you come up. Trust me you will find links re the situation. Think you are the only one going through the same sh**?

The sgreen says general error, see your printer documentation for information about clearing the error.......of course I can't find the manual


Everything you need; manuals, drivers and interactive guide can be found here:

Below are two possible soultions for a General Error:

1. When a General error message appears in the display on your printer's control panel, the print head may not be able to move because of some obstruction. Follow these steps:

  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Open the printer's cover.
  3. Gently remove any jammed paper or other obstructions from the paper path.
  4. Close the cover and turn the printer back on.
alert_note.gif Note: If you can't remove the paper or foreign object yourself, do not use force and do not disassemble the printer.

2. When a General error message appears in the display on your printer's control panel, the print head may not be able to move back and forth freely.

If your printer's ink cartridge cover is not completely closed, the print head may have trouble moving back and forth. Follow these steps:

Turn off the printer.
  1. Open the printer's cover.
  2. Press the ink cartridge cover to make sure it is completely closed.
  3. Close the cover and turn the printer back on.
Before considering other options you might to try unplugging the printer from the power supply; give it 5 - 10 minutes before plugging back in and restarting.

Hopefully this will help resolve the problem. :)

Epson rx560 general error


Hi,

Unfortunately a "general error" is different from the commonly assumed "service required" error.

Usually a general error comes about because of something a bit more serious than a paper jam which stops the printhead from moving around as it should, cartridge chips not reading properly, etc...

It's worth trying the following and seeing if any of them help
  • Open the printer lid and using a flashlight/torch, carefully examine the area that the printhead travels along to see if there's any foreign objects, ink soiled paper, etc.. that might be getting in the way.
  • Try getting the printhead off the parking area and check this for any parts of the cleaning station that may have dislodged or other foreign objects that do not belong
  • Remove all the cartridges, clean the chip contacts carefully with a cotton bud and check the contact wires inside the cartridge holder area for any damage.
Beyond that it's a case of looking for clues that might indicate where the problem lies.. ie: if the printhead stops in a particular place, screeching noises, etc...

Hope some of that helps narrow it down some.

Hi i have turned my printer on and on the control panel it says general error see your printers documentation on clearing the error but it dosent say how to clear a general error


First see if their is a newer driver available, then  Reinstall your printer and software. This is the printer model I am presently using. If this doesn't cure the problem write back, ok?
