Tips for a great answer:
1. After the error message is displayed on the LCD or display, open the scanner cover, so the print head is visible.
2. Press and hold the Stop/Exit key for 5 seconds. The print head will move to the middle.
3. Unplug the power cord from the power outlet.
4. Use a clean lint free cloth dampend with a bit of alchohol and clean both sides of the encoder strip thoroughly. Move the print head from side to side to allow access for cleaning of the entire encoder strip.
