You most to do internal check to power supply, electronic module and formatter. Download service manual. Entry to service menu and following the procedure. If any part failed then change it. When You change any part You have to run some adjust. 

If all part that You have to check pass troubleshoot then restart the printer and maybe the error disappear. If the error display again then You have to change the Formatter.


Best regard.
