Occurs when the paper sensor detects a paper longer than 20 inches. Occurs when the printer does not detect the BJ cartridge. (A bad printhead is possible.) Occurs when a color BJ cartridge is installed or when the black BJ cartridge is not recognized. Install or replace a BC-10. Occurs when the remaining capacity of the absorber is 1%. Press ON LINE to resume. F14 error may occur soon. Occurs when the input voltage is 11.1 to 11.8 VDC. Normal voltage is 13VDC +2.5VDC 1.5VDC. Occurs when the cartridge is in the replacement mode for 5 minutes or longer. Displayed when ink low warning function is enabled. Occurs when the calculated ink consumption exceeds the maximum value in EEPROM. The cartridge may be out of ink. Replace the ink cartridge and reset the ink low warning by pressing the MENU button once. Occurs when battery power is low. Occurs when the result of the ROM check during the initializing operation fails. Occurs when the result of the RAM check during the initializing operation fails. Occurs when data cannot be written into the EEPROM. Occurs when the home position cannot be detected. Occurs when the print position correction cannot be detected. (Irregularity in the carriage movement.) Occurs when the input voltage is incorrect. (The power adapter or battery may be bad.) Occurs when the temperature sensor's reading on the logic board is abnormal. (A bad printhead is possible.) Occurs when the temperature of the diode sensor in the BJ cartridge head exceeds the prescribed level. (A bad printhead is possible.) Occurs when the printer does not detect the cartridge in a position other than BJ cartridge removal position. (A bad printhead is possible.) Occurs when the "total waste ink amount" recorded by the EEPROM exceeds the prescribed limit. Waste ink absorber pad may need to be replaced and the counter needs to be reset.

Paper ejection doesn't occur. Feeding over 23 inches. One of the ink tanks is out of ink. The BJ cartridge is not installed. The scanner cartridge is incorrectly installed for printing or the BJ cartridge is installed for scanning. Heater resistance value (rank) of the BJ cartridge is wrong. The amount (stored in EEPROM) of waste ink absorbed has reached 95% of the defined capacity. Incorrect carriage position or speed. Purge sensor cannot detect the cam flag correctly. Auto-sheet Feeder cannot detect the pick-up roller flag correctly. The temperature inside the printer increases abnormally when the scanner cartridge is installed. The data (stored in EEPROM) representing the amount of the waste ink absorbed exceeds 100% of the defined capacity. The internal temperature of the BJ cartridge is too high (exceeding 90 C). EEPROM sum check value at soft power-on does not match the pre-fined value. ROM checking during initialization is no good. RAM checking during initialization is no good.

<Cause> When the CPU malfunctions due to an unknown cause, the CPU makes illegal access and runs aberrantly, resulting in a hardware error. In this case, as the printer cannot continue operations, the printer is powered off. When the printer is powered on the next time, the error is displayed. Eg. One cause on this error may be the head error.
