I have been given a printer by my employer but had no operating instructions and I cannot get it to print out.A green light keeps flashing.Where can I download instructions and trouble shooting tips.


Gonna depend on the brand of the printer. Usually you can go to the manufacturer's website and do a search for the model name and the word "drivers" to find the correct drivers for that particular printer. Since it will print a test copy it sounds like the printer is fine and its just a question of communication with the printer. More information would be needed to help you. Is it connected Via USB or wireless? If its USB when you plug the printer in, your computer should discover it and take care of the rest, though that's not always the case. At the very least it should discover that you've connected something.

Based on some assumptions, if you're on a Windows based PC, and its connected via USB, right click "computer" or "my computer" under "Start" and click properties. In the window that opens you're looking for an option called "Device manager". If you click that, it'll list all of the hardware in use on your computer. Look for anything with a red x, exclamation point, or warning sign (looks like a yellow traffic sign). If you see any of those, its definitely a driver problem. Unfortunately, even if you don't see any of those it might still be a driver problem (gotta love Windows). So going forward we need more info. Are you on a Windows PC, Mac, or a Linux box? What brand and model is the printer? How are you connecting to the printer?

With that info we should be able to get you squared away.

I just replaced both ink cartridges in my esp3 printer. But when I print, the page comes out blank


You need a new Print Head:
Clean the printhead, then print a test page.
  1. On the control panel, press and hold Cancel + Copy/Resume simultaneously until the On/Off light flashes. The On/Off light continues to flash during the cleaning procedure.
  2. When the On/Off light glows steady, press and hold Quantity + Cancel simultaneously until the On/Off light flashes, then wait for the test page to print.
  3. Review the printed test page and verify that:
    • the left color blocks are gray, cyan, and black.
    • the right color blocks are magenta, yellow, and black.
    • each block is completely filled with color.
    • Is the test page blank?
  4. 1-800-421-6699,Call Kodak to Report Code BP03

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

My orange light next to the yellow dot blinking and the printer will not print


When the orange light is solid it means the cartridge is low and you can still print. But when the orange light is flashing it means the cartridge is empty and the printer stops printing. To continue printing you will need to replace the yellow toner cartridge. The part numbers are Q3972 regular yield or Q3962A high yield.

No yellow color no test printing


take the cartridge out and look at the area that the sensor checks, and see if you see a lot of ink. it will be clear tube and you should see the ink, if it looks full, then your nozzles that go to the printhead either have air in it or the printhead is clogged up.

try doing up to 5 cleanings, and do a test print, check the nozzle test print everytime, if you do not see an improvement, then most likely the printhead will need to get replaced.

Hp lj 2500 flashing yellow light


The yellow-print-cartridge
light is blinking, and the
printer stops printing.
 The print cartridge is
empty or missing.
 The printer cannot
detect the print
cartridge correctly.
1. Reinsert or replace the print cartridge.
2. If the print-cartridge light is still blinking but the
Attention light is not on, turn the printer off and
then back on.
3. If the problem persists, repeat the above steps
with yellow print cartridges until the error is
resolved.
4. If the problem persists, replace the printcartridge
E-label reader, which is located on the
pressure assembly of the print-cartridge
carousel.

Printer paused-unable to read


HI there,

1. First, clean your printer. Get some spray-n-wipe cleaner and a clean cloth and clean the entire inside of the printer. Also ensure your paper isn't dirty. Now print a test page. Does the symptom persist?
2. Remove all jammed paper. Check the paper tray first. Look closely at the paper rollers nearest where the paper exits the printer; this is a common source of jams. If you’re trying to print labels, they will often jam just before exiting the printer.
3. Try to print a test page. Does the printer still jam? If you can find no source of the jamming, check the printer's message display window and refer to your user’s manual to look up the printer error code.

Flashing Lights


From the User Guide:

Black, Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow Supplies Status lights
These lights indicate when a print cartridge is low (the light is on), or empty or missing (the
light blinks). The lights also indicate when a non-HP print cartridge is installed (the light
blinks and the Attention light is on).

If you don't have a User Guide click on the link below and save it for future reference.

Colors not print well


This could be because of a defective valve.

DO NOT CLEAN THE PIEZO PH WITH ANY SOLUTION EXCEPT ORINIGNAL BROTHER INK!!!! OTHERWISE YOU WILL DEFENETLY DESTROY THE PH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Try this:

Place new carts into machine and make sure thy are secured.

Press menu then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode and lights will flash. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink within tubes and ph and do some cleaning. when done press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy. machine will do a power purge.
Leave maintenance afterwards by pressing 9 then 9. Do run a test print by pressing ink etc.
If you still cant see any yellow and/or magenta the ph is defective and needs replacement.
