You can try this method to reset the error..
First close the print head cover, and turn off the printer. While pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press the Power button. (Do not release the buttons. The LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.), then while holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button but do not release the Power button.
While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button three times, and then release the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange. During initialization, the LED blinks in green. When the LED stops blinking and lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the 4 times. Pls note each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.
Then press the Power button, the LED lights in green, and the
selected function is performed. When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically. Last just power off then back on and test.
