    ASF unit is top of the paper where the paper get in, it is possible to be skipped.First time try to change the top where you enter the paper.If the problem persist you need to replace the purge unit.

  • Frunza George Bogdan Mar 22, 2011

    http://thumbs2.ebaystatic.com/m/mmYfjWVa... this is the sheet feed unit,is almos the same with mp 540,i give you the link to see the asf unit how looks.You change the asf unit like that you need to unzip the printer,give the scanner down.The asf unit is under the scanner.



    If you replace that and the problem persist you need to replace the purge unit,the purge unit is in the rigth if you open the scanner.

once done just turn on and check the status

If your product has a removable printhead and uses 564, 364, 178, 862, or 920 cartridges, you have come to the right troubleshooting document.



Issue
An \'Ink System Failure\' or \'0x... \' error message displays on the printer control panel. The exact text of these error messages varies by printer, but they are usually preceded by the word \'Error .\'


The steps to resolve this issue depend on the error code that displays on the product control panel with the \'Ink System Failure\' message. Look for the section below that addresses your particular issue, and then review the solutions in that section.


Click the plus sign () for more information.

Follow these steps to resolve the issue of \'Ink System Failure\' with an accompanying error code \'0xC19A0003.\'



Solution one: Reset the printer


The error message might disappear after you turn off the printer and then turn it on again. After you make any adjustments to the cartridges or the printhead, reset the printer in order for the error message to clear completely. Follow these steps to reset the printer.






  1. Press the Power button ( ) to turn on the product.



  2. With the product turned on , disconnect the power cord from the rear of the product.


  3. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.


  4. Wait at least 15 seconds.


  5. Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.


  6. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the product.


  7. If the product does not turn on by itself, press the Power button ( ) to turn it on.






  • If the error message disappears, the issue is resolved and you do not need to troubleshoot further.




  • If the error message persists, continue to the next solution.




Solution two: Remove, clean, and reinstall the printhead


If the previous solutions did not resolve the problem, the printhead might be installed incorrectly, or there might be ink or debris on the printhead electrical contacts. Follow these steps to check and clean the printhead.



Step one: Remove the printhead



  1. Press the Power button ( ) to turn on the product.



  2. Open the cartridge access door.


  3. To remove each cartridge, press the tab on the front of the cartridge to release it and remove it from the slot.


    Figure 1: Remove the cartridge




    NOTE: Do not leave the cartridges outside the product longer than 30 minutes. Doing so can result in damage to both the product and the cartridges.



  4. Lift the latch handle on the carriage until it stops.


    Figure 2: Lift the latch handle



  5. Lift the printhead straight up to remove it.


    Figure 3: Remove the printhead



Step two: Clean the printhead
There are three areas of the printhead that need to be cleaned: the plastic ramps on both sides of the ink nozzles, the edge between the ink nozzles and the electrical contacts, and the electrical contacts. Follow these steps to clean the printhead.



Figure 4: Three areas to clean


1 - Plastic ramp on the side of the ink nozzles

2 - The edge between the ink nozzles and the electrical contacts

3 - The electrical contacts



CAUTION:Do not touch the ink nozzles. Do not touch the electrical contacts with your finger. Use only cleaning materials to touch the electrical contact areas.
Figure 5: Do not touch the electrical contacts





  1. Gather the following cleaning materials:





    • Several clean, lint-free cloths or papers. Coffee filters and glass-cleaning cloths work well.






  2. Distilled or bottled water. Do not use tap water, because it can contain contaminants that can damage the printhead.




  • Lightly dampen a clean, lint-free cloth.


  • Use the damp cloth to wipe the electrical contacts from the bottom to the top. Do not go past the edge between the electrical contacts and the ink nozzles. Repeat this motion until no ink remains on the electrical contacts.


    Figure 6: Clean the electrical contacts



  • Use a fresh, lightly dampened, lint-free cloth to wipe any accumulated ink and debris from the edge between the ink nozzles and the electrical contacts.


    Figure 7: Clean the edge between the ink nozzles and the electrical contacts



  • Use a fresh, lightly dampened, lint-free cloth to wipe the plastic ramps on both sides of the ink nozzles. Wipe away from the nozzles only.


    Figure 8: Clean the ramps



  • Dry the previously cleaned areas with a clean, dry, lint-free cloth before proceeding to the next step.


  • Lightly dampen a fresh, clean, lint-free cloth with bottled or distilled water.


  • Clean the electrical contacts inside the product by wiping them from top to bottom. Repeat this motion until no ink remains on the electrical contacts.


    Figure 9: Clean the electrical contacts inside the product



  • Dry the area with a clean, dry, lint-free cloth.



  • Step three: Reinstall the printhead



    1. Raise the latch handle, and then reinsert the printhead.



      Figure 10: Insert the printhead



    2. Carefully lower the latch handle before reinserting the cartridges.



      NOTE:Leaving the latch handle raised can result in incorrectly seated cartridges and printing issues. The latch must remain down to install the cartridges correctly.



      Figure 11: Lower the latch handle



    3. Using the colored shaped icons for help, slide the cartridges into their appropriate slots until they snap firmly into place in the slot.







      Figure 12: Slide the cartridge into the slot



      Figure 13: Snap the cartridge into place


  • Close the cartridge access door.







    • If the error message disappears, the issue is resolved and you do not need to troubleshoot further.




    • If the error message persists, continue to the next solution.





    Solution three: Reset the product








    1. Press the Power button ( ) to turn on the product.



    2. With the product turned on , disconnect the power cord from the rear of the product.


    3. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.


    4. Wait at least 15 seconds.


    5. Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.


    6. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the product.


    7. If the product does not turn on by itself, press the Power button ( ) to turn it on.







    • If the error message disappears, the issue is resolved and you do not need to troubleshoot further.




    • If the error message persists, continue to the next solution.






    Solution four: Replace the printhead


    If the previous solutions did not resolve the issue, replace the printhead. Contact HP support to obtain a replacement printhead.



    Click Contact HP ( ) on this page for more support options.



    If HP replaces your printhead assembly under warranty, you will receive a new printhead assembly, cleaning materials, and a full set of new cartridges.


    If your printhead assembly is no longer under warranty, you can purchase a new one online.

      • If your printer uses 4 ink cartridges, type CN643A

    My Canon MP630 has been showing error code C000 for months now. I tried turning it on and off, exchanged all the catridges, looked for jammed paper, removed the print head. Any solutions or should I just...


    Hello there,
    The C000 error is cause by the ink cartridge not being seated properly. Here are some instructions from Canon on how to resolve it. If this doesnt work, try to replace your ink cartridge. If still you are having issues, it might be that the ink cartridge cradle in the printer is faulty. I hope this helps! Thumbs up are much appreciated.

    I am getting ink error message Oxc19a0013


    Is the phrase "Ink System Failure" in the message?

    First check the cartridges. Remove all of the cartridges. Replace any that are low or empty. Check for damage or a blocked vent. Clear the blockage with a pin. If it is clogged with tape or the orange tab (that was in place during shipping), then remove the tape. Replace any that are damaged. Reinsert the cartridges and make sure that they are fully seated (clicked into place). Check if the error persists when you close the cartridge access door.

    Try running the printhead cleaning utility from your computer. (HP Solutions Center under Setting, Print Settings, Printer Toolbox and follow the on-screen directions).

    Remove the printhead and clean it. Then reinsert it and make sure it is fully seated. Remove the cartridges, lift the latch handle on the right and lift the print head straight up. This is done with cotton swabs or lint free clothes (coffee filters will work) and distilled or bottled water. During the cleaning do not touch the nozzles; also do not touch the contacts with your fingers. Wet the swab or cloth and wring out the excess water. Wipe the contacts on the printhead with the damp cloth first by wiping up towards the nozzles. Then with another damp cloth wipe the edge between the contacts and the nozzles (work in a right to left motion). Finally wipe down the ramps going away from the nozzles with another cloth. (Wipe each part until there is no ink left.) Dry each area with a fresh cloth.

    Next take another damp cloth and wipe the contacts inside the printer. (work from top to bottom.) Dry the area.

    Reinstall the printhead and lower the latch handle. Then reinsert the ink cartridges until they snap in. Close the cartridge access cover and check for the error message.

    If the error persists, reset the printer. With the printer on, disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer. Disconnect the other end of the cord from the wall outlet. Wait at least 15 seconds and then plug in the cord (first to the wall outlet and then the printer). Turn on the unit.

    If the error persists, then either the printhead needs to be replaced or the unit needs service. Unfortunately a new printhead is not returnable if you put it in and find the error persists.

    For details and pictures: see http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01458034&tmp_task=solveCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3737195#N65 .

    I hope this helps.

    Epson rx560 general error


    Hi,

    Unfortunately a "general error" is different from the commonly assumed "service required" error.

    Usually a general error comes about because of something a bit more serious than a paper jam which stops the printhead from moving around as it should, cartridge chips not reading properly, etc...

    It's worth trying the following and seeing if any of them help
    • Open the printer lid and using a flashlight/torch, carefully examine the area that the printhead travels along to see if there's any foreign objects, ink soiled paper, etc.. that might be getting in the way.
    • Try getting the printhead off the parking area and check this for any parts of the cleaning station that may have dislodged or other foreign objects that do not belong
    • Remove all the cartridges, clean the chip contacts carefully with a cotton bud and check the contact wires inside the cartridge holder area for any damage.
    Beyond that it's a case of looking for clues that might indicate where the problem lies.. ie: if the printhead stops in a particular place, screeching noises, etc...

    Hope some of that helps narrow it down some.
