"Epson error code 031008 generally occurs due to improper insertion of the printhead or ink cartridges. Accumulation of dust on these two printercomponents can cause this error code to appear. It occurs suddenly in between an ongoing printing session without giving any prior intimation.


Contact points

Make sure the cartridge chip is clean, free of ink smear and debris.Make sure the printer's contact pin is clean, free of ink smear and debrisVerify that the cartridge is seated in the printer securely.  Push it down hard until you hear a click.  Once it is inside, wiggle it with your finger back and forth.  If the cartridge seems to be loose, insert folded paper to the back and thus push the cartridge forward to have good contact with the printer.


Possible Causes:

If you installed cartridge with power off, then printer won't know you changed the cartridge.  It will confuse the printer and thus cause cartridge error.Sometimes Epson printer won't erase previous error code.  When it has a depleted OEM cartridge error, and a non-OEM cartridge warning come together, it causes the printer to display ""cartridge not recognized"".

Things to try:

Install non-OEM cartridge early.  Do not wait till OEM cartridges empty.Put the OEM cartridge back and use on-screen prompt to change cartridges.Power off the printer and leave it about 1 hour then power it onRemove all cartridges.  Let the printer run without any cartridge.  It will create a ""no cartridge installed"" error and thus erase the ""ink cartridge empty"" error.  After the printer settles down, use on-screen prompt to change cartridges.

hi what mean error code 031006 epson 7720
bert [Entry]

The 031006 is referring to a bad fuse on the main board. This is typically caused by a short across the print head ribbon connection due to ink/moisture intrusion. The fuse is labeled F301 on the board and is not user serviceable; it will require the main board be replaced.

"Here is the correect answer.

When moist, such as ink, creates a short circuit between two contact points in the printhead of the ribbon cable that connects it to the main board, then a small fuse on the mainboard blows. The error code the printer gives is 031006. The fuse on the mainboard is marked with F1 or F301 or something similiar. It is small!! I can’t tell you where it’s located as that is different for every different mainboard version.

Are you confident with a screwdriver and a soldering iron? Then you can do this and save yourself a $100 new mainboard. Take the covers off your printer, disconnect all cables off the mainboard, take the mainboard out, spot fuse F301 or similar and measure its continuity with a multimeter. If the meter does not beep: bingo. Replace the fuse, assemble everything, your printer works again.

If you found the fuse to be properly working, then don’t touch it and check all ribbon cable connections and clean all contact points between printhead and mainboard instead. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoxwMqZN..."
