HI, you got a mechanical error on your printer this is because it got a paper jam problem and that may result that your printhead slams. Try to look if there's something in your printer that preventing the gear inside to move. If so re install again the driver software of your printer.

The DFX-8500 uses a series of beeps to identify errors and error 6 relates to carriage load measurement. This error causes an auto power off after 12 seconds.

Parts that can effect this error are:

Hope this helps
