Lexmark e260d printer 4th light orange is continuously flashing. New toner cartridge was installed. Not printing


If the blinking light is on Toner Low (4th light starting from left), press and release the Continue button (green button) to clear the light sequence and continue processing the print job. If the light is still blinking, the photoconductor is almost full and should be replaced.

For further assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support

Re my pixma mp13o printer. message"ink waste tank almost full" how do I rectify it. tried switching on and off and unplugging for 10 seconds.


Three choices. 1. Take it in for repair. 2.Take the top off and remove and clean the pad. 3. Use the following instructions to reset the printer and continue printing. I chose number 3 and haven't had any problems.
These are the instructions which worked for me on my Canon mp470 and has work on many other Canon models:

1) Close the print2_bing.gif head cover, and turn off the printer. While pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press the Power button. (Do not release the buttons. The LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (Do not release the Power button.)

3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button three times, and then release the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.) During initialization, the LED blinks in green.

4) When the LED stops blinking and lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the 4 times. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.)

5) Press the Power button. The LED lights in green, and the
selected function is performed. (When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.)

6) Power off then back on and test.

Hello there wondering if you can help me My power light on my Canon ip2000 keeps flashing green/orange and the print queue stops and nothing is happening. I've powered the printer on/off Also have...


Usually means theres a paper jam or your out of paper or some problem is occurring. While that blinking orange is blinking press and hold it for about 5 seconds the printer should stop blinking orange and continue with the print. Also open up your printer to see if there are any documents that are in the print queue. Probably can delete those. Thats my guess as to whats wrong with the printer. Used to have one of those. Nice little printer remember 12 blacks for 12 bucks.

Printer does not print at all


Did u remove the cellotape that covers the printhead of the new cartridge?
Other solution:
if using XP: use the HP toolbox to prepare the new catridges for firsttime printing.
If using Vista, go to start-controlpanel-printers and rightclick on hp940C icon, choose properties, select services and do a cleaning and prepare job.

Canon Pixma MP150 Error code E 42


Had exact same problem. Scanner light should come on at power up. Found ribbon cable connecting scanner unit to base had come unplugged from socket on circuit board. The ribbon cable is one of three found near back hinge of scanner and is hidden underneath the other two. It should drape over the edge of circuit board and then plug into small recepticle on inner side of board. I plugged it in and printer works again. Hope this helps.
