Epson printer error codes


The error code E-90 appears when the print head is not able to move back and forth freely.
If the ink cartridge cover is not completely closed, the print head may have trouble moving back and forth. Follow these steps to close the ink cartridge cover:
  1. Turn off the printer
  2. Lift up the scanner.
  3. Press down on the ink cartridge cover to make sure it is completely closed.
  4. Close the scanner and turn the printer back on.
- or, If the packing materials are not removed, the print head will be unable to move and the error code E-90 may appear on the control panel display. Follow these steps to remove the packing materials:
  1. Turn off the printer
  2. Lift up the scanner to access the printer area.
  3. Remove the tape from the ink cartridge holder.
  4. Close the scanner.
  5. Turn the printer back on

Getting error code 6A80 I have checked for any paper blockage and cannot find one. cleaned the print head. cleaned the excess ink pad and wiped in that area. powered off and pressed both buttons on right...


Hello Mark! Welcome to FixYa!

If you get error 6A80, It probably means that paper was ripped inside, and one piece is stucked somewhere on a sensor. Usualy is the purge unit that clean up the print head, and it's located inside on the right side (printhead parking place).


You have told that you have cleaned the print head but you have to check it again because mostly this error is surely be because of above cause, For it Take a torch, lift up the scanner unit, with the unit ON, wait for the print head to come in the middle, move it to left to make more room, and check the right side, inside the unit. If you find it on right side then remove it


Now if error is still there then move to next given solution to solve this error 6A80:-
Turned out to be the print head unit was not returning fully to the home position ie extreme right. When the scanning unit cover is raised the print head unit moves left for access, look in the vacated area to the right, in particular the small black sponge where the head normally parks. You may find a small spring jammed in beside the sponge, Just remove it

If problem is still there then it may be sometimes 6A80 error is an APP position error caused by the APP motor during the purging operation as the printer starts up. Basically there is an "App Sensor" which is reporting the issue in my case the problem was with the "Purge unit". Canon states that one of three components is likely to have failed, the sheet feed unit, purge unit or logic board. This problem may sometimes solved by EEPROM reset that can be done using the service manual or sometimes solved by following steps:-
  • Left up the cover to reveal the ink cartridges
  • Move the ink / print head to the left hand side
  • Look to the right under the flap where the ink would sit when printer is powered off
  • Underneath there is something in white that is flat - this is called a wiper.
  • Push this wiper with your fingers - pushing in the direction toward the front of the printer -you may need to do this a few times.
  • Power off and then power on (using button on the front and NOT by pulling the power out of the back)
After this if problem still exist then it may because of some hardware issue. If your printer is still in warranty then claim the warranty. If it is out of warranty then you have to contact authorized service center of Canon Printers to solve this problem

I hope this solution helps you and you have clear picture in your mind now
Let me know if you have any confusion in your mind.

Hello and Welcome to FixYa
There is an "App Sensor" which is reporting the issue in my case the problem was with the "Purge unit" resulting in 6A80.
Try following these steps;
  • Left up the cover to reveal the ink cartridges
  • Move the ink / print head to the left hand side
  • Look to the right under the flap where the ink would sit when printer is powered off
  • Underneath there is something in white that is flat - this is called a wiper.
  • Push this wiper with your fingers - pushing in the direction toward the front of the printer - you may need to do this a few times.
  • Power off and then power on (using button on the front and NOT by pulling the power out of the back)
Hopefully error should go after you attempt this a few times.

My MX700 canon printer is flashing the on ff green light and the gold alarm light and say error code 6A80. My book says to unplug all power and the plug back in but it is doing the same thing. Thanks for...


The printer head has locked itself and won't move.
I have found a solution for you on the Internet - here are the details :-

I was able to unlock the print head - just with a small piece of foil.
Cut a 3-5cm wide stripe from a sheet of overhead-foil (90um thickness), move it below the print head, and move it to the front and upwards, to the back and upwards. Remove the foil. After switching the printer on - it will work as before and be able to move the head. No need to disassemble the whole MX700!

Error message 6a80 mx700 printer canon what is this?


Hello

Ok, the error code you are getting refers to a paper jam, which the paper is usually torn from the big piece and stuck, you need to have a good lok to find it.
Most probably the paper was ripped inside, and one piece is stuck somewhere on a sensor. Usualy is the purge unit that clean up the print head, and it's located inside on the right side (printhead parking place).

Take a torch, lift up the scanner unit, with the unit ON, wait for the print head to come in the middle, move it to left to make more room, and check the right side, inside the unit.

Kind regards
Andrea

Canon S520 printer stopped printing has 7 orange lights before the green light on printer has an error code


Hi ...

light flashing 7 times means that there is an issue with printer head. Try and perform the below steps to reset the printer head whcih might resolve the problem. If this doen not, I would suggest you get your printer checked by a technician.

Reseat the print head
  1. Confirm that the printer is powered on.

  2. Check that the printer is powered on, and open the front cover. Wait until the print head moves to the center.

  3. Hold and slowly move the print head lock lever up and down several times.

  4. Lower the print head lock lever to secure the print head.

    Note: Holding the print head may cause it to not be seated properly. Perform this step using only the print head lock lever.

  5. Close the front cover.

Hi there,

I opened the printer, and pushed gently on the lever that holds/releases the print head, and this seemed to release whatever was stuck. After this the print head moved freely on turning on the printer/copier.

Error 6a80


Error 6A80

I had this error and a Canon engineer showed me how to deal with this.

Basically there is an "App Sensor" which is reporting the issue in my case the problem was with the "Purge unit".

(a) Left up the cover to reveal the ink cartridges
(b) Move the ink / print head to the left hand side
(c) Look to the right under the flap where the ink would sit when printer is powered off
(d) underneath there is something in white that is flat - this is called a wiper.
(e) push this wiper with your fingers - pushing in the direction toward the front of the printer - you may need to do this a few times.
(f) power off and then power on (using button on the front and NOT by pulling the power out of the back)

Hopefully error should go after you attempt this a few times!
