If there is no jam it is generally a mechanical issue such as...

1. The planetary arm assembly not engaged correctly
2. Ink cartridge/purge switch harness not connected correctly
3. Purge cam switch broken
4. Gear(s) on maintenance unit broken
5. Paper feed motor broken
6. Main PCB defective

I find that if there was a paper jam, and the user pulled the paper out, option 4 is most likely. It is the smallest of cracks but ruins everything!

You will need to contact your local ASC for repair, find it here.

The machine has a mechanical problem.
-OR-
A foreign obstacle such as a clip or ripped

from the power source for several
minutes then reconnect it.

The mechanical error is something literally wrong with the mechanics, usually this error occurs after a paper jam and when the paper is pulled out it cracks the maintenance unit.

Other issues include the switching arm, the ink cartridge/purge switch harness, purge cam switch, paper feed motor, and the main pcb.

Unable to initialized


"Unable to Init" indicates a mechanical error, unless you're able to find a stuck paper or parts of a stuck paper or similar, you'll have to send the unit to service to have it fixed.
