Re: error code 86

If this error code appeared but was NOT caused by a paper jam, then
try the following:
 Too much friction in the Slider Rod. Enter the Printer Information
utility (⇒ Page 4-27) and check the Scan-Axis usage. If the
percentage is close to 100%, then lubricate the Slider Rod.
 The Carriage is bumping into the Service Station. If the carriage
is stuck at the right hand side of the Printer and cannot be moved
out to the center of the Print Platen it is because the Service
Station cannot uncap the Printheads. In this case replace the
Service Station/Aerosol Fan Assembly

When I try & call someone it says error in connection what does it mean

It means that the signal from your phone to the phone you are calling is not being transmitted properly between to or more of the stations between you and the other phone. There are probably multiple links between you and them and any one of those links could have problems sending and/or receiving a signal. One or more of them are experiencing signal problems.

Code 28 driver is not installed in my laptop, please tell me how i can install code 28 dricer and i have nothing any cd.

The Code 28 driver means that there is a piece of hardware installed on your computer, but the driver wasn't installed correctly. If you have recently installed a piece of hardware, then you may need to find the correct driver for it. These are often found on the manufacturers websites.

If this doesn't work, then remove any hardware you have recently added, and reboot the machine. If the code 28 error goes, then at least you know exactly what's causing it, and can re-troubleshoot from there.
