Common Error Codes

0040 Pump motor operation count reaches the limit.
00000101 The CR 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, 1000mm 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, 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.
