Does any one know what the error codes are on a BJC-80 printer?
When you plug it in, the head moves back and forth and sit back in its resting location.(no lights on) You press the power button and the head starts to move again back and forth no grinding noise, seems fine. Then it settles back to its resting area and beeps 5 times then error and power light flash at the same time. It won’t move again until you power off and then back on. (Even when you press the cartridge button it will not move.)
