The printer`s default name is listed on the Configuration Page (see The printer`s Configuration Page). If the name does not appear, check the cable connection between your printer and the network. Note: It is possible for the name on the configuration page to be blank.
Check there is paper in the tray (and it`s the right type of paper). Turn the printer off, wait 20 seconds and turn it back on again. Both USB and Wi-Fi connected printers require the correct and current printer driver is installed on the computer you`re printing from.
Just above the circuit board on most printer cartridges, you`ll find a small button. You`ve seen these tiny buttons before on cell phones, phone chargers, etc. This is your reset button, and the only way to get in there is either with a paper clip or the tip of a pen (which will leave a tiny ink smudge on the button).
Make sure the paper tray is configured with the correct settings for the type and size of paper you are using. If necessary, refer toModify the Paper Tray Settings. Power the Printer Off, Wait 10 Seconds, Power the Printer On. If the problem persists, contact Support for additional assistance.
To view the IP address of the printer on the control panel: At the printer control panel, press the Home button. Touch Device > About. The IP address appears in the Network section of the About screen for Wired IPv4 Address or Wired IPv6 Address.
Begin by restarting your software application. If that doesn`t work, reboot your computer. Lastly, turn off your printer for a few minutes before switching it back on.
At your computer, open the Control Panel, then select Devices and Printers > Add a Printer.
Do a hard reset on your printer. To do this you just need to turn off your printer, unplug for a few minutes and then plug the printer again. If that still doesn`t work, try turning the printer and your computer off, and then start it back up again. Try uninstalling and then reinstalling your printer driver.
Check Paper Tray and Printer Connection

Verify your printer`s ink levels, clean the printhead, fill the paper tray, and avoid using substandard paper. Low-quality paper can cause “Ghost Paper Jams” and other issues that stop your printer from printing documents.

Verify the ink cartridge(s) is inserted properly. Some cartridges snap in place, and if they are not inserted fully, the printer won`t print anything. If a lever is moved from its original position to allow for installation of ink cartridges, ensure it is returned to its original position.
First, remove and reinstall the designated cartridge 2-3 times until it securely sits in the slot to overcome an HP printer cartridge error. Next, turn off the printer and take out all the cartridges. Gently wipe the cartridge and carriage contacts with a dry, lint-free cloth and reinstall again.

Printhead Tilt Fault Error, Xerox 8870 Colorqube
ANSWER : The 8870 I had which had a 97,721.00 error ended up being a split\cracked gear on the shaft that engages the maintenance kit, the :9875 is the printer page count. You can try to rehome the process drive but I would check and see if there is a split gear (where it mounts on shaft) first because the shaft will spin but the gear won’t engage if it’s cracked or split so it throws an error.
