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

Error code e00003-00001


This is an error code for the fixing assembly not getting hot enough in a specific amount of time. It will most likely have to be replaced and these fixing assemblies are not cheap. You will have to get a price quote and after installation there will have to be a fixing assembly adjustment initialized through the service mode. Good Luck.

Ibm 4232 printer 055 machine check msg ?????


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.
