LIST OF ERROR DISPLAY / TROUBLESHOOTING
Errors and warnings are displayed by the following ways:
- Operator call errors are indicated by the Alarm LED lit in orange, and the error and its solution
are displayed on the LCD.
- Messages during printing from a computer are displayed on the MP driver Status Monitor.
- Error codes are printed in the "operator call/service call error record" area in EEPROM
information print.
Buttons valid when an operator call error occurs:
- ON button: To turn the machine off and on again.
- OK button: To clear and recover from an error. In some operator call errors, the error will
automatically be cleared when the cause of the error is eliminated, and pressing
the OK button may not be necessary.
- Stop button: To cancel the job at error occurrence, and to clear the error.

Solution
Set the paper in the rear tray, and press the OK button.
Remove the jammed paper, and press the OK button.
There may be an obstacle in front of the machine. Remove
it, if any, and press the OK button.
Install the ink cartridge properly. If the error is not cleared,
the ink cartridge may be defective. Replace the ink
cartridge.
Re-set the ink cartridge. If the error is not cleared, the ink
cartridge may be defective. Replace the ink cartridge.
A non-supported ink cartridge is installed. Install the
supported ink cartridge. If the error is not cleared, the ink
cartridge may be defective. Replace the ink cartridge.
Install the ink cartridge in the correct position. If the error is
not cleared, the ink cartridge may be defective. Replace
the ink cartridge.
Confirm that each ink cartridge is installed in the correct
position. If the error is not cleared, the ink cartridge may be
defective. Replace the ink cartridge.
Re-set the ink cartridge. If the error is not cleared, the ink
cartridge may be defective. Replace the ink cartridge.
A non-supported ink cartridge is installed. Install the
supported ink cartridge.
Replace the ink cartridge. Printing with an empty ink tank
can damage the machine.
To continue printing without replacing the ink cartridge,
press the Stop/Reset button for 5 sec. or longer. (After the
operation, it is recorded in the machine EEPROM that the
function to detect the remaining ink amount was disabled.)
Re-set the ink cartridge. If the error is not cleared, the ink
cartridge may be defective. Replace the ink cartridge.

Solution
Replace the ink cartridge. Printing with an empty ink tank
can damage the machine.
To continue printing without replacing the ink cartridge,
press the Stop/Reset button for 5 sec. or longer. (After the
operation, it is recorded in the machine EEPROM that the
function to detect the remaining ink amount was disabled.)
Replace the ink absorber, and reset the ink absorber
counter. (See 2-1, "Service Mode.")
Pressing the Stop/Reset button will exit the error, and
enable printing without replacing the ink absorber.
However, when the ink absorber becomes full, no further
printing can be performed unless the applicable ink
absorber is replaced.
