Question: My printer MFP 1136 is showing error E8 i cant understand.
Answer: As already described in the above given answer, the problem is in the scanner, it could be a hardware issue. Please tap the printer from the side faces and then on the top to fix it or there will be a hardware issue. You may try to power drain your printer. To diagnose software issues, unplug the USB cable from the computer and try to copy a sample document from the printer. If it works in this situation it means the problem in the software, or if it doesn't work then it seems like a hardware issue. If a hardware issue is diagnosed then the scanner unit will be replaced manually.
