    Clean the encoder strip again with regular alcohol. Clean the encoder eye sensor also if you can get to it. You can flip the encoder strip also if it is too far gone, but then you have to go to service mode and re-calibrate.

    I tried and did not answer. When I turn on the device after a few hours,with the first nozzle check is no problem, but the second time the message is received.Also, the 2 carriage Were not separated

    Carriages do not have to actually be disconnected to receive this message. The carriage just has to read that it is at an incorrect location along the encoder strip for it to think it is disconnected. Hence, the strip needs replaced or cleaned. I believe that you can get the replacement (non-oem) strips from a vendor on here for under $50?
