Press menu then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow-up button (tel.index) quick after another.

machine will be in maintenance mode and lights will flash.

press start bk copy in case machine wont directly display the error code.

Error starting with 4 means defective print head.
Error starting with 5 menas defective purge station or cycle problems.

both error series means: you need a new printer...
