Goodness, not a lot to go on here...but hopefully I can still help.

General Trouble Shooting Practices for Printers and Cleaning Instructions:

  1. Isolate the issue: Are you getting power to the device, is it a feeding/paper issue or is it related to the software. To test this unhook the computer and reset the device. Try and print a configuration page using the printer menus.
  2. If still jamming it's Hardware related, try to replace or invert the paper in the feeder tray and post specific hardware concerns for me here if necessary. See cleaning instructions below.
  3. Other wise, diagnose the software: If no hardware issues appear after disconnecting the printer. Uninstall the printer before hooking it back up, remove any software associated with the printer, and then plug the printer into a different USB port on the PC. Reinstall the software using downloads from the vendor website instead of the CD whenever possible.
Cleaning the Printer:

Clean the glassy edge of the toner cartridge on laser printers while manually turning the gear to the side, on ink printers clean the base of the carriage and the copper contacts on the cartridge. Blow out around the access panels with compressed air and look to see if the rollers are getting really dirty or feel slick. If they do use a product like Rubber renew to make them tacky again or use a reconditioning kit to replace them.
  • When dealing with large bundled gear assemblies that are not close proximity to the paper I also like to spray a little WD-40 on the assembly, it reduces plastic dust from the gears and makes the printer run quieter.
Hopefully this will help you, if you can at least post the make and model of your printer and your computer operating system I can offer more model specific advice.

Error oki b6100 e2


This error often comes when there an paper jam or paper tray 1 or paper tray 2 or 3 is empty,make sure that you have enough paper in the trays and secondly make sure that you have there is no paper jam in paper roller, even an tiny particle of paper can cause this error.

Please open all the access of your printer pull out all the paper trays and clean it properly with air blower, this can fix this error.

Error messages and printing problems


Hi,
Paper mismatch errors occur because the printer scans the width of the envelope before printing. If the paper size setting in the printer driver does not match the paper actually loaded in the printer, the printer reports a 'Paper size error'.
Try to adjust the printer and envolopee settings..

The printer will not feed the paper into the machine


Hmm, this is too general symptom too troubleshoot. But never mind. Printer cannot feed the paper for several reasons:
Auto sheet feeder (paper feeding mechanisme) is faulty;usually generate error message on the monitor or/and error code on LCD display
Paper end did not reach paper sensor because the paper not set properly or another material block the paper path.
To find out more about this error,please check the following article exclusively for Canon printer.

Constantly getting error code E3 on my Pixma MP150 multi-function printer. Have checked inside repeatedly and can see no paper jam


What may have happened is that the Paper sensor is locked down and tells the printer that there is paper in the path (although there isn't any). The paper sensor is a toggle switch and there is a paddle that pushes it down as the paper goes in/out. Look on the right side of the unit ,under the roller assembly. Sorry, but I do not have a service manual for this unit.
Error list :

E2-2 = No paper (ASF)
E3-3 = Paper jam
E4 = No ink
E5-5 = The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed, or the ink cartridges are not installed properly
E8 = Waste ink absorber full, or platen waste ink absorber full
E9 = The connected digital camera / video camera does not support Camera Direct Printing
E14 = The Ink cartridges whose destination are wrong
E15 = Ink cartridge is not installed E16 - Ink remaining is unknown
E16 -E19 = Failed to scan head alignment sheet
E22 = Carriage error
E23 = Paper feed error
E24 = Purge unit error
E25 = ASF(cam) sensor error
E26 = Internal temperature rise error
E27 = Waste ink absorber full or platen waste ink absorber full
E28 = Ink cartridge temperature rise error -
E29 = EEPROM error
E33 = Paper feed position error
E35 15 = USB Host VBUD overcurrent error - USB
E37 17 = Abnormal motor driver error
E40 20 = Other hardware error
E42 22 = Scanner error


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

913 service motor error


If this is the first time you have seen this error, do the following:
  1. Power off the printer.
  2. Remove all installed paper trays.
  3. Make sure the paper is loaded correctly in each tray. If it is not, reload the paper into that tray.
  4. Look up into the printer where the paper tray slides in and out. Check the feed (autocompensator) assembly for any damage.
  5. If everything is fine, reinstall the tray and power on the printer.
  6. Try printing a few print jobs.
  7. If the error does not return, continue using the printer as before. Keep an eye on it for the next few days. If the error does not return, it may have been an isolated incident.
  8. If the error returns just as soon as you power on the printer or when you try to print again, you will need to find out which paper tray/paper source is causing the problem.
  • If the printer has only the one integrated paper tray, the problem will be with either the tray 1 pick arm/autocompensator assembly or the printer's engine/system board.
  • If the printer has more than one paper tray installed, try printing from each paper tray one at a time. The best way to do this is to have all of the paper trays empty and then proceed as follows:
    1. Put paper in tray 1 only.
    2. Print from tray 1.
    3. If tray 1 works fine, empty tray 1 and put paper in tray 2 and so on until you encounter the error message.
    4. If you receive the error when printing from one particular tray, power off the printer to clear the error.
    5. Power the printer back on.
    6. Skip the faulty paper feed slot and move on to the next one (if another one is present). If you can print from all but one of the paper trays, this is the source of the problem.

      If you have extra paper trays/drawer units installed and the error occurs from only one particular source, there are some things you can do as a temporary fix.
      • If the error is occurring from an OPTIONAL paper drawer/source, power off the printer and remove the defective drawer from the printer. You will then need to set up the printer to print from a different tray. For information on removing an optional drawer, click here.
      • If the error is occurring from the integrated paper tray (tray 1) AND you have optional paper trays installed, take all of the paper out of tray 1 but leave tray 1 installed. Set up the printer to print from one of the other paper tray sources (tray 2, tray 3, multi-purpose feeder, etc.).
    7. And if your getting the same error then you need to get it serviced...

Epson Photo RX600 error messages


Hi.
Check for a paper jam inside the paper feeder... There's something blocking the path that is why the 3-beep is activated. Also put lubricant to the head's round-bar, gears and levers.

Goodluck... Fixya me...
