Product Manuals
Understanding Error Codes with the Epson DFX-9000
The Epson DFX-9000 uses a mixture of alerts to communicate to users what the particular problem with their printer currently is. Usually a beep code consisting of three beeps will accompany an error message and when it is not it will be indicated below:

ERROR: PAPER OUT – This message can appear when the paper is in fact out or when the paper is simply not loaded into the machine correctly. Either load paper or reload the current paper supply.

ERROR: NO PAPER LOADED – This message appears when the continuous feed method is being used but the paper is not fed to the standby position. Use the LF/FF LOAD button to feed paper to the standby position and tear off a page if needed.

ERROR: PAPER JAM – There is a jam in the printer that must be cleared by hand.

ERROR: SWITCHING NOT COMPLETE – The printer has not been able to change paper. Cut the paper and press the PAUSE or the FRONT/REAR button.

ERROR: RIBBON JAM – The ribbon has jammed and must be manually reinstalled.

ERROR: RIBBON OUT – This message only appears when the machine does not detect a ribbon. Install one or reinstall the current one.

ERROR: COVER OPEN – This printer will not print unless its cover is close. Close the cover to print.

PRINT HEAD HOT PLEASE WAIT – No beep code will accompany this message. Users simply have to wait for the print head to cool down when this is displayed.

ERROR: XX – The printer cannot determine the problem. It will freak out and blink all its lights at once and beep five times.
Replacing an Ink Ribbon in the Epson DFX-9000 Printer
The Epson DFX-9000 must be turned off to replace its ink ribbon. Even if the RIBBON OUT message is not displayed, a user may wish to replace his ink ribbon when the device begins to print too faintly for satisfaction.

Open the cover of the printer and simply pull out the old ink ribbon cartridge. There is a small triangle mark inside the printer indicating where the print head must be positioned to install a new cartridge. Slide the print head by hand under the indicator.

Remove a new ink ribbon from its packaging and remove the black piece of plastic that is attached to it before installation. The cartridge should be held vertically by both sides and lowered into the printer so that the notches and pegs line up, then the cartridge can be pivoted down into the printer. It will click into place.

Lift up on the plastic ribbon guide and slide it behind the print head, being careful not to twist the ribbon or damage it. The guide should snap into place on the print head. Be sure that the print head can move freely by sliding it to the left and right by hand. It should move along its rail smoothly (never do this with the device turned on or it could damage the printer).

Turn the ribbon tightening knob in the direction indicated to tighten up the ribbon and then close the printer and restore its power.

Epson DFX-9000 Printer Review


The Epson DFX-9000 will see you through thick and thin. It offers speeds of up to 1550cps and outstanding paper handling. The DFX-9000 works well on most network tracks. With this printer there is a slot for optional interface boards to connect with your Ethernet, Twinax and/or Coax network. It also features two standard paper paths; the DFX-9000 easily switches between multiple applications. The printer has a sensor that detects the paper width and thickness that you are using and adjusts automatically for optimum performance and high-quality results.


The Epson DFX-9000 was built to meet heavy workloads whether it is a commercial business or a government office. It is reliable and offers outstanding prints.
One advantage of the Epson DFX-9000 is that it is built to last. This printer will keep working even when it is used heavily. Its long-lasting ribbon prints up to 15 million characters.
Finally it will handle any job. It is built to allow you to change paper sizes without any hassle. The Epson DFX-9000 will make you life easier.


The only drawback of this printer is its lack of paper handling capacity. If it could handle 3,000 sheets it would be perfect.
