Hi

Hope you already know that Error 3 is a carriage return horizontal position error and flashes when the printer turns on & the SP Motor Brake signal is not switched on within 3 seconds of it turning on. To solve this issue you should check the SP motor connection, if that is fine then the unit should be serviced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

If the issue returns then the motor control can be replaced.
