Printer error has occurred.

What to Do

If you are printing, press the printer's Stop button to cancel printing, then turn off the printer.

Check the following:

  • Make sure the print head holder motion is not impeded by protective materials for securing the print head holder, jammed paper, etc.

    Remove any impediment.

     When clearing an impediment to print head holder motion, be careful not to touch clear film (A) or white belt (B).

    Don't touch the film (A) or belt (B)

    If you soil or scratch this part by touching it with paper or your hand, it could damage the printer.
  • Make sure the ink tanks are properly installed.

    Press the ink tanks until they click into place.

Turn the printer back on.

If this does not solve the problem, the printer will require servicing.
