Re: System Error 04C300 00260000
System Error 04CXX Try the following Steps to resolved an eror:
1.)Press ENTER and switch the printer OFF. Remove the Hard Disk Drive (if installed) and make sure that the EIO card is installed correctly by pushing it firmly inwards and checking that the two installation screws are completely tightened. Switch the printer ON again. If this error code continues to appear then replace the EIO card.
2.)If this Error Code disappeared after removing the Hard Disk Drive, then switch the Printer OFF and reinstall the Hard Disk Drive, making sure that the two installation screws are completely tightened. Switch the Printer ON again. If this Error Code reappears, then the Hard Disk Drive could be faulty. Replace the Hard Disk Drive.
3.)If this system error continues to appear after replacing the EIO card or the Hard Disk Drive, then replace the Electronics Module...

As soon as I started using recycled ink cartridges, I started getting a paper jam error on my printer. The control panel message instructs me to remove the back panel and clear paper jam. I've done this several times but there is no paper to clear and the message keeps coming back. I've tried turning of the printer and unplugging it to clear the memory, but that doesn't help. Could it be that the chip on the ink cartridge is messing with the printer's operating system?
I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".
This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.
OK....try removing the carts, close the printer, turn off, then disconnect...alot of the problems with the newer HP printers has to do with their ROM memory....if that doesn't work, then there is defintely something in the paper path, no matter how small. Try to eliminate the copy function....does the error happen as soon as the printer is finished powering up??
Empty cartridges may cause this error. Here is the error code list for your printer
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
Did you perhaps not mean to post under the 1315? I am not sure if you have this printer or another model. The 1315 normally takes a different number ink cartridge.
Meanwhile - gotta tell you that the 1315 is the buggiest printer I ever had. If you purchased it recently and can find your receipt, I'd take it back! Since they've pretty much done away with the 1315, if it was a recent purchase, it was likely a clearance item from some place.
Try taking all the ink cartridges out, uninstall the printer entirely, and reinstall it (the entire printer, not just the cartridges). Blow your printer out with canned air as well - dust, pet hair, people hair, fuzz and general paper fibers can build up more than we think, and cause error messages and other printing problems.
That should help, if it was the 1315 model.
That being said, note that if it still doesn't work, and you have the 1315, save yourself a lot of grief and toss it in the trash and buy another cheap printer! 1315 is Bug City!
clean the cartridges and the printer contacts (cartridge contact on the printer) using a lint free cloth.
unplug the power chord from the back of the printer while the printer is on.... press and hold the # and 6 button on the printer and while holding them insert the power chord, wait for few seconds and release them.
check whether it is working fine or not, if not try with a different set of ink cartridges.
Did you or one of your users have a paper jam recently and force the jam out of the printer? Because we've had a few 5650's do this after a jam. About 66% of the time this fixed it...
Removing the ink, unplugging the printer, moving the print head to the half way point, and starting the printer. If it resets at that point and lets you put the ink in, your usually gold. If it just stops and blinks again your not.
That said, I'm actually taking one apart that wasn't fixable this way right now. I think the problem may be something related to not recognizing if the cover is up/down, but still can't see why it happens or how that it is effected by the jam.
