FAQ: "P," "0," and "2" are alternately displayed on LED

Details:


When "P," "0," and "2" are alternately displayed on LED while the power lamp and the error lamp of the main unit alternately blink, the behavior of the FINE cartridge holder may be interrupted.
Do you see a jammed paper or foreign material? Did you install the FINE cartridge holder properly?
Please see the following for detail.
If the problem persists, contact the service center for repair.

Helpful Information:

Solution:


1. Is there a jammed paper or foreign material inside the printer?

Stop printing, then push the power button of the printer to turn OFF the printer.
Open the paper output cover of the printer, and if you find a jammed paper or foreign material is inside the printer, remove it.

After checking the above items, push the power button to turn ON the printer again.


ATTENTION
When removing the jammed paper or foreign material, take extra care so that you do not touch the inner parts. Or, it may cause another printing problem.


2. Check the encoder film conditions, and clean it if it is smeared

The printer detects the position of the FINE cartridge holder by the encoder film. If the film is smeared, the holder position cannot be detected properly, resulting in faulty printing.
Check the encoder film condition and clean it if it is smeared, while following the procedures below.

If the problem persists, contact the service center.
