How to Solve Xhorse Dolphin XP005 “Error 56, Error code: 6”?


I have successfully cut 3 keys via Xhorse Dolphin XP005 + VVDI Key Tool Max until the 4th key, it prompted “Error:56. The cutter is short-circuited, please check the cutter conductivity. Please take photo and send to technical support.”


The error still exits even if I use other devices to control Dolphin XP005, it occasionally occurs cutter detected error code: 6 as below

“Please do following steps

  1. check the clamp is correct;
  2. Check height level adjustment finished;
  3. Check clamp calibration finished;
  4. Check the key insert properly, no chips.”


I can’t use Dolphin XP005 machine anymore, I can’ do calibration or anything else. Please help me.

  1. Just take apart the LED lamp cover to brush the scrap iron;
  2. Do an electrical conductivity measurement after cleaning, take a video to VVDIshop engineer for help.
Those probes and cutters are electrically charged it’s how the machine knows it’s touching the key. I would pull the cover off and see if you have any metal shavings up inside the cutter head floating around or if it’s happening when it touches the machine make sure it’s clean of shavings because those are electrically conductive and a pile of shavings the machine thinks is the clamp and will throw an error.
Also it’s recommended to not use air to clear the shavings. They get blown into the machine and cause problems.
