The E-701 error indicates the controller and printer are not communicating. Usually, this is due to a problem with the controller. The controller issue could be one of several different causes: Hard drive failure, mother board failure, Interface Card (P-193) failure, LVPS failure, or a corrupt hard drive.

As I mentioned in the earlier post, you will need a number of items, both hardware and software to reformat the hard drive. You will also need the manual. I can offer you a package of these items. Email me at
