The user can establish the internal Machine Error Code as follows: pull the mains cable out of the machine (power off), hold down the Menu/Set key, re-insert the mains cable into the machine (power on). The internal Machine Error Code will be displayed.
If that doesnt give you the code then try going into service mode by pressin menu key then *, 2 , 8, 6, 4 super quick!! Display goes blank or Maintenence mode is displayed, if not... not quick enough, do again to you get it, then press 77 start, error should display. press 99 to exit Maintence mode, dont play with other numbers!!
a couple of the most common errors are
Error 41 needs new print head costly
error 46 waste ink full, need new waste tank

If you are using new cartridges, the problem is in the sensors. The ink sensors get dirty and malfunction. Remove the ink cartridges and thoroughly clean all the surfaces, Allow to completely dry and replace the cartridges. This should cure your problem.
p.s. I usually use alcohol on a Q-Tip to clean
