Unplug the device from power cord, then press and hold the menu button.Plug back the device.On the LCD you'll see the "machine error" code.If this code is "machine error 40, 41 or 4f" the print head is defective.If the machine error is 46, this is the waste ink tank full.Then follow this procedure:

1. Pres 'menu', 'mono start' then'menu' one by one...
2. Press the arrow up or down to go to'maintenance 80'.
3. Press 'mono start' several times to go to'Purge'. Finding the PURGE will show some numeric value which is Iassume the number of times the printer had cleaned.
4. Press'arrow up' key and scroll for number "2" then press "set".Do the same for numbers 7, 8 and 3. After you have entered thiscombination, the purge numeric value will be reseted to 00000.

Init Unable 48, See troubleshooting and routine maintenance chapter in User's guide


Hi,

What is the condition of your print cartridges? They could have dried out during the 2 month period that you didn't use the printer. Try, cleaning the contacts of the cartridges and the printer. If you have new cartridges to try....even better.

Paper misfeeding on one side but printer keeps printing with no paper


Look for any foriegn objects or old torn paper from an earlier jam. Something is either obstructing or mis-guiding the paper. If nothing is found, use a can of compressed air to blow thr paper intake area out, then test print again.

If still not solved, use a cottom swan soaked in alcohol to scrub clean the rubber paper pickup roller. Over time it gets slick from paper dust and the paper will notget grabbed evenly, causing it to skew as it's pulled in.

Clean unable 46


Hi, check to see if there is any foreign object jamming the print mechanism, check all drive belts. If this doesn't show nup any problems, I'm afraid that you have a failure that will require dis-assembly and repair by a company who deals in these printers.

The user can establish the internal Machine Error Code as follows: pull the mains cable out of the machine (power off), hold down the Menu/Set key, re-insert the mains cable into the machine (power on). The internal Machine Error Code will be displayed.
If that doesnt give you the code then try going into service mode by pressin menu key then *, 2 , 8, 6, 4  super quick!! Display goes blank or Maintenence mode is displayed, if not... not quick enough, do again to you get it, then press 77 start, error should display. press 99 to exit Maintence mode, dont play with other numbers!!

a couple of the most common errors are

Error 41 needs new print head costly

error 46 waste ink full, need new waste tank

Whats yours?
