SOURCE: Error / Ribbon Jam/Broken

When you open and close the lid on this printer, it tries to realign the ribbon. If you are getting this error, I suggestion you Calibrate the print ribbon through the print driver printing preferences on the Calibrate tab.

SOURCE: ink ribbon or paper roll error. the in ribbon is

Happend twice to me. What sometimes happens is that the paper roll was not changed at the time the ink was. Therefore the paper roll was allowed to remain in the printer until the very last sheet. On the last sheet there is a sticker that says paper out. (stupid idea) This sticker makes the last sheet of paper too thick to fit through the last paper guide / feed. Because of this, the ink film breaks and that specific error message is displayed until that last piece of 4x6 is pulled from the paper feed. Clear that out, and all is good.. Change the paper every time u change the ink.

How to reseat the print head on Dell Photo P703w All-In-One Printer

1. Disconnect the AC power from the printer

2. Lift up on the print head from the lower left corner

3. Gently pull the ribbon cable to move the carrier to the center

Note if the carrier is stuck under the lid and will not move with gentle pressure, then you may need to plug the printer back in before gently pulling the cable.

You should now be able to see the carrier at the top opening of the printer

4. Next remove the ink cartridges

5. Now press down on the center of the print head. You will want to press firmly until you hear an audible click sound.

6. Next test the assembly by trying to lift up on the printhead. If it lifts up, repeat step 5.

If the printhead does not lift up try pushing the carrier to the right.

7. Close the top lid and plug back in AC power

8. Turn the printer on and check to see if the paper jam error is gone.

Epson 800 Artisan printer was bought 2 years ago and I just opened the box set up the printer and it displays the following message. "An error has occured. Turn off all power. Check for and clear the...


I cant take credit for this fix, but it worked on my Artisan 800 with the same error. My error occurred right after a paper jam where i had a tough time removing the paper.

"Open the printer. See a 1/4" grey plastic band that is attached to the
print head. This is the CR (carriage return) guide that tells the print
head exactly where it is. During a paper jam it is sometimes pulled out
of the slit on the head carrier that it has to be in to tell the print
head where it is on the carriage. Pull the print head out about half
way, and with a flashlight look behind the head carrier. You will see a
small plastic u-shaped piece. Make sure the CR ribbon is INSIDE the
slit, or u-shaped device. When this happens you will usually hear the
print head hitting the side of the printer twice while it tries to
determine its position. Be very careful not to damage the ribbon. It
will slip back into the slot quite easily"

My print head didnt want to pull out, so i took a small inspection mirror and had a look behind the print head. Sure enough the ribbon was outside of the sensor. I easily pushed down on the ribbon gently with my finger and pulled it towards me just a little bit and it popped back up into the slot. Closed the printer up and no more message.

Hope this helps some other poor soul.

T2265 check ribbon +0000 35---- 114002+ 32 32 4049


This error is indicating a problem with print head movement.
This error can be indicated if there is any thing which may be preventing print head movement, things you can check include;

That the he printer ribbon is not jammed and is located correctly in the printer,
Check to ensure there is no paper jam of loose paper which may prevent print head movement
Check the carriage shaft to ensure it is free from paper dust or any other obstructions.

With the printer powered off, the print head should slide freely across the width of the printer, you can then see if there is any obstruction to the print head.
You may then need to check the following for faults;
Ribbon Driver
Carriage Motor
Carriage Belt
Timing Strip
Logic Board
Interconnect Board.

The printer just says initializing and doesn't do


There is a ribbon that should be securely-attached to the back of the print-head -- if it has broken-loose, then the print-head will not move, even when the ribbon is moving.

Take the printer to a qualified technician to confirm this diagnosis,
and to evaluate whether the printer is "fatally" broken.

No Paper Error


You could have two problems. One the paper sensor in the cassette could be jammed or broken, The clicking could be the sensor jammed next to the feed roller. If not it could be the fuser gear is broken.
