    I'll get the limit Initialize and then I get UREVOVERABLE LIMIT ERROR (sounds serious)

    You most likely did not do the procedure correctly. The video outlines the process perfectly. I would suggest you try it again. It is very important that the printhead is locked in place for the "Move to Cap Pos" step , as shown at the 55 sec - 1 min point. If you can move it to the left at all, then it will give you the error you received. Keep trying to lock the head in place before pressing Enter.

    Is there a battery on the main board to keep settings? I think there is. Perhaps your battery is dead.

    Did you recently turn off the power?

    Yes, top left that looks like a battery holder.

  8. The purpose of the battery is actually a common misconception. The battery does not keep any settings.

    The battery only powers the clock... It will simply keep date and time when the power switch is turned off.

    If you ever switched off your printer and then when you power it on it says "press power to clean" that is a sure indicator that your battery is dead. That's because the printer has no idea when it was last cleaned because it does not know the date... or more likely the current date is earlier than the last clean date.

    I had the same problem the other day, Jim’s advice is spot on.
