Three levels of servicing are available and detailed
- 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
- Advanced 0040 / 0001002D maintenance
procedure: As well as replacing the parts relating to the
maintenance error additional adjustments such as bidirectional/unidirectional
alignment, 1000mm feed adjustment, firmware updating and
a general clean will be performed.
- Overhaul: All maintenance items as well as the PF, CR motor
and belt, pressure assembly and cutter solenoid will be replaced.
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.
It is recommended that if you have recently come into ownership
of a second user Epson Stylus Pro 4880 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.
