First - disconnect it from the computer
turn it off, check for any obstructions then turn it back on (while still disconnected from the computer)
observe :

Power Light SOLID + paper / ink light flashes - check CD/DVD tray if open. (must be close on power up)

ALL Lights Flashes - Unknown Printer error (internal hardware problem)

Sounds like a paper jamb try running a sheet through and check if you can grab the stuck paper out other wise you may try a hard reset unplug wait 5 minutes plug back in restart the computer before retrying the print

You need to do some cleaning on this printer, because that causes it not to work , you can take the parts off from the printer and use alcohol to clean the dirty parts of the printer..

Hope that helps.............

The print head does not move correctly. Ink cartridges do not light red. Orange flashing light flashes 12 times


I don't know what type of printer you have, but you might try cleaning the thin plastic strip you'll see at the carriage. It has fine lines on it and it tells the printer where the carriage is. If ink or dirt get on it, you will get carriage jams. Try this: get a soft cloth moistened with water and gently (!) rub it on the strip back and forth, moving the ink carriage to clean the entire strip. Don't use anything other than water as the ink is water soluble. Also clean the rod that the carriage moves on with alcohol. Sometimes dust and other debris gets on it and causes it to move jerkily.

The feed indicator light and ink light flash alternately (back and forth). the R800 won't print, allow cartridge tray to move, or feed paper.


Lights flashing alternately means that your printer's waste ink pad is saturated. It needs to be replaced and reset the counter. To reset the waste ink pad counter you will need a resetting program. You may download it by going to this link:

I keep getting a service error B200, and the lights flash green and orange alternately. How can I fix this?


Try keeping the paper only in the bottom tray (there's a tray in the bottom) Try pulling any paper out of the top and just close that top tray. Open up the head so that u can see the ink cartridges and turn the printer on and off and maybe it will center itself again. If it's still not working (even if lights aren't red and print head wont align in the center) try manually moving the head back and forth like 18 times so you can lubricate that rail in the back that's holding it. After that, re-turn it off and on again.

L1 SHOWING ON SHARP COPYER SF756


An L1 generally means the lamp carage is not moving. Remove the glass and see if that lamp assembly moves back and forth freely or if it is hitting something in it's path.

Turn the printer off. Open the cover and check for any foreign objects that can cause your print head not to move. Check if you have put the ink cartridges correctly and make sure that the cover for the ink tray is closed. Turn the printer on, if your going to see the same status of the lights, it will be a hardware issue.

HP C3180 all in one printer won't realign


Hi,

We've encountered several problem like this. Hope this gives an idea; I understand the cartridge will not moved back to park tray or flash ink tray back and forth because the return pick-up guide were not properly placed into each original position. It will block the ink tray moving back and forth. You can roll back the roller into the original place by removing the back cover if it has, then turn the pick-up roller slowly allowing the roller to turn and backed to its original position. Removed also remains of jammed paper pieces.

Best regards,
Rosener Guyano
