L6 error on AR-M160 - Polygon motor problem.

I would suggest repairman service for this one as it requires stripping the unit down.

Try reseting the error first though.

Error message 222aO-reset power come on when I turn on printer. I have plugged and unplugged all cables and power sources.Any solutions to this?


the error message you encounter is new to me. however, you can try to partialy reset your printer.

1. while the unit is turn ON, unplug the power cord from the back of the printer
2. press and hold the # and 3 buttons together and dont release.
3. while holding the two buttons, plug-in back the power cord from the back of the printer.
4. wait for a couple of seconds, it will give you a message on the printer screen "PARTIAL NVM RESET".. when you see that message, you may release the two buttons.
5. in some cases, after you plug-in the power cord button frmo the back of the printer, the printer will become ONLINE.. and after 30 seconds it will automatically turn off. when that happens, just release the two buttons and press the power ON button to turn it ON.
6. after turning it ON, it will give you message "PARTIAL NVM reset".

note: after performing the steps, your printer will make some noise and it will eventually stops. then try to check if you still have that error message.
