service call error 00010040

Common Error Codes
00000101 The CR Motor reached it's end of life. 00010000 PF Encoder Check Error. 00010005 CR Motor is out of step. 00010014 Pressurising failure. 00010027 Pressure pump micro air-leak error. 00010040 Printing position error. 0001002D The cleaning unit reached it's end of life. 0001003F The Pressure Motor reached it's end of life.

Servicing Levels

Three levels of servicing are available and detailed below:
  1. Basic 0040 or 0001002D maintenance procedure: This will return your printer from either the 0040 or 0001002D error to a working state by replacing only the relevant maintenance items.
  2. Advanced 0040 / 0001002D maintenance procedure: As well as replacing the parts relating to the maintenance error additional adjustments such as bidirectional/unidirectional alignment, 980mm feed adjustment, firmware updating and a general clean will be performed.
  3. Overhaul: All maintenance items as well as the PF, CR motor and belt, cutter cap, pressure assembly and cutter solenoid will be replaced. A check for any design defects such as a defective cutter cap and a defective pressure lever will be performed and any parts will be replaced if necessary. All head and feed alignments will be performed as well as any required software updates and sensor verifications. A thorough clean will also be performed on the carriage area and the print head. When the procedures are complete a survey will be performed to better understand your requirements and any recommendations will be brought forward.
info.gifIt is recommended that if you have recently come into ownership of a second user Epson Stylus Pro 9800 then you should assume that the counter values or service life levels are incorrect and choose the most thorough procedure detailed above. The reason for this is an increasing number of printers being "reset" without the actual parts being replaced or inexperienced owners trying to repair or replace parts incorrectly. In one such case a part was removed and replaced incorrectly causing a serious ink leak which was luckily caught early due to the undertaking of an thorough maintenance procedure, but unfortunately extensive damage had already been caused to the chassis and maintenance tank area.

I copied the error code and put it in the search bar in a web browser and came up with the answer. In the future just google the codes and see what comes up. Also you can download a Field Repair Guide PDF and a Manual PDF from Epson's website too.

Ls. \r\nHow to repaire or empty or remove the problem of my printer "Canon Pixma MP130" The waste ink absober is allmost full", Thanks in advance. **** van Zetten. cockvanzetten@orange.nl

Press OK to clear the error until the counter reaches its limit. (Then the printer will not work at all.)

This is a messy problem to fix and may not be worth doing. The waste ink absorbers are sets of pads, one below the print head cleaning area and the other down at the bottom of the printer. They absorb ink during the printhead cleaning cycle.

First have lots of newspaper or other absorbent material nearby. Then disassemble the printer from the top. You will need to remove some screws to get to the bottom set of pads. Blot off the excess ink and blot ink out of the areas where the pads sit. Put the pads under running water until the water stays clear. Then dry the pads. You can use a blow dryer to speed the process. Then reassemble the printer.

Next reset the waste ink counter:
1) Enter SERVICE MODE By pressing Menu-Scan-Copy-Scan (press each key in order)
2) Enter NVRAM by presing then OK
5) Set press STOP to EXIT
6) OK

Do not do this reset without replacing or cleaning and drying the pads. Waste ink will spill everywhere after a short time.

Please note that the limit for the waste ink counter is set so that it is normally reached at the expected end of life for the printer. If your printer is under warranty, let Canon repair it. If it is out of warranty, additional failures may occur soon.

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(on some Canon printers, you need to press and hold Menu while turning on the printer and then press Menu 4 times to get to the correct setting to reset. It depends on the buttons on the panel of the unit.)
