Introduction
are hexa-decimal based numbers generally
caused by internal system errors. The following pages contain a list
of and their respective descriptions and
recommended corrective actions. Only try one recommended action
at a time and check if the error code has disappeared.
Continuable and Non-Continuable Error Codes
Some of the Error Codes are continuable, which means you can
press Enter on the front-panel and continue working with the
Printer. Non-Continuable Error Codes do not allow you to continue
working with the Printer, in this case power the Printer OFF and ON
again and see if the System Error disappears. If the Error Code
reappears, then the Printer requires an on-site visit in order to
resolve the problem.
NOTE
Even though the customer can continue working with a
Continuable Error Code, an on-site visit should still be planned
to troubleshoot the problem.

Determine whether the previous problems are causing the current
failure in the printer.

Determine whether there are additional symptoms to the current
system error code.
The information that is stored for each error code is:

The reported System error code.

The code line in the Firmware where the error was triggered.

The date when the error code was triggered.
