Kyocera-Mita Kyocera-Mita printers and copiers are reliable machines, and they work well with our compatible ink and toner cartridges. Kyocera-Mita has installed a self-diagnostic system in most of their printers and copiers to help users and technicians determine what is wrong. When an error is detected, the diagnostic tool automatically runs and generates an error code. While different models use different error code schemes, the following codes are some of the most common.

Errors that begin with the letter C denote mechanical failures. Most of these errors require professional servicing to be corrected, but some may be fixed by users with intermediate mechanical skills. Error codes that begin with the letters E, OP or U are usually operator errors that can be easily solved.

Error Code Error Description

Solution: This error code usually means the printer has a serious hardware problem, and parts need to be replaced.
C0420 The paper deck or feed deck motor is not functioning.
Solution: See if the paper tray is fully closed. If so, pull out the tray and replace it.
