Printer Error Messages

Printer Error messages show that a hardware, microcode, or host interface problem has been detected in a printer or in the control unit. An operator can sometimes, but not always, recover from these types of problems.

Follow the procedure given in the Directions field of the Printer Error window to perform error recovery. Table 13 lists the printer error messages for which there is additional information contained in this manual to aid in your error recovery procedures.
