Operation was a success but the patient died!!!
Followed the power off - move to left - power on/off etc instructions several times. Finally Success, the normal display screen came on and I was ready to go.
Went to copy a document. Document fed in properly, machine made normal noises and mothins and then, the power totally died. Nothing! Nada! Rien! Kaput!
Power went off and screen (obviously) went blank. Print head unit is all the way to the right and lodged in place; I can't pull it out. Tried disconnecting power cord (from both ends) and tried re-starting but no power to the machine.
I may have to take it in somewhere, or start looking for another Forum thread.
Like I said,: Operation was a success but the patient died!!!
@ manishishah: Thanks for the info. I have a feeling that I'll end up having to order a new printer head and/or print carriage.
Would you mind posting the details (and/or a link, if it's allowed) for specifically which item you ordered from Amazon? Sometimes it's hard to be sure an item is really compatible with the machines that the seller claims it is. It would be nice to know which one you ordered, since it sounds like it worked with your printer.
@manishisha: Thanks for the info. Actually I forgot to specify that I'm using an MP560 although most people here are commenting on their MP860. I assume that you're using an MP860? (The MP560 has the same issues with this error message, and most suggestions for the MP560 are the same as for MP860).
Anyway, I'll look at who the seller is for the item you ordered and see if they've got something for the MP560. At least I'd be starting out with a seller that gave you the right thing, thus increasing my chance of receiving the right thing (hopefully). 🙂
