This error code is usally related to the printhead cartridge not running smoothly on the printhead shaft. Clean the shaft with a paper towel and some alcohol, let dry then take a clean paper towel with some WD-40 and apply to the printhead shaft. Move the printhead assembly from side to side. This should take care of all errors that are 50-59.

Hello,

You are getting a carriage error indication (055). This can be a few things. First, you will have to make sure that your carriage rail is cleaned and there are no obstructions to the print head. Then I would recommend changing out the carriage assembly felts. There are two and they are located on the right and left side of the carriage assembly. Two little yellow or black if dirty O ring felts. You will also have to check your print head gap. You want to make sure that it moves from right to left freely when the printer is off and unplugged. If not you might need to perform an afta adjustment. If all is good then you are looking at a bad main logic bd. and it will need to be replaced.

If you have any question on how to do any of the above, I can supply you with free technical support as long as parts that are requested are ordered from us.

I carry all parts necessary to fix your printer. We also offer in house repairs if the job seems too much. Please contact me back if you have any question.

Thanks

    What is error code 055 / 151 - can't erase It from my 1997 C230 benz - if I put new transmission fluid will it be fine ?


    1.. The fault codes will remain until the issue with the transmission is fixed. If there was no issue the fault codes would not normally be generated.

    2. Changing the transmission fluid will not fix the problem but there is no harm changing it,

    3. Often with these codes there will be a problem with the transmission shifting gears. You have not mentioned in your question what, if any, drive symptoms you are having with the auto transmission. If you are having shifting issues I would suspect the valve body in the transmission will need cleaning and servicing provided there is no issue found with the Electronic Transmission Control .

    While this is not for your specific printer, it is the same error code, and sounds like the printer is from the same series, so it may be of some use if figuring out this problem.

    Panafax UF-885 - Error Code 055


    Error 055 is a laser error. the laser is not spinning at the proper speed and may need replacement. There is another solution, where some ferrite cores are added around three cables to reduce electronic interference. Best call a local technician for further diagnosis.
