No.ERROR CODEREASONHOW TO FIX
first02 – Warming UpCable error or driver error.Turn off the device and unplug the cable (USB or I / O cable), then turn it on again. If the printer says “Ready”, update the driver first, if not improved, it may be due to the printing cable. But if there is still no change, the reason is hardware.
210 – Supplies Memory ErrorBecause of faulty ink chip, the device cannot be read.First off and on again. If there is no improvement, remove and reinstall the cartridge or replace the cartridge at the same time. If it still does not work, it is a hardware error.
311 – Paper OutIf the printer does not run out of paper, there may be a problem with the paper tray and paper sensor.Make sure the printer is on a flat surface. Check the paper tray for damage and clean the toner. If that doesn’t work, check the paper sensor or clean the optical sensor.
412 – Open or No EPIf the printer’s cartridge is not installed properly, this means that the cover will be opened or the cooling fan is faulty or the PS5 sensor is defective.Check that the cartridges are installed correctly and the covers are closed. If the problem is not fixed, it may be due to a hardware error.
513 – Paper JamThe machine may jam in the following 4 locations: Take paper, print, dry and output. Later HP printers will show the location of the paper jam. If you use thick paper, read the printer manual for the machine again.In addition to following the instructions on the screen, you should check the order of the potential locations for possible paper jams. Do not use a hard object to remove jammed paper, as this may damage the device. But after taking out the jam paper but the error still occurs, you have a hardware error.
