Re: All lights are blinking, no printing

If all of the LEDs are flashing fast then a service error has occured. the only option is to contact Dell. If they are flashing slow then the printer is resetting. I wouldn't give up just yet, if you can supply some details we might be able to suggest something: - what lead to this error. - What have you already tried. - What operating system are you using.

Re: All lights are blinking, no printing

Mine was doing the same thing - actually several here at my place of business. Our solution was to get replacements. At less than 100.00 for new ones, it is not cost effective to have them repaired.

When i turn on the printer all the lights are blinking, i have reset the printer many times, restarted my computer and nothing has worked to help the problem. I just printed yesterday with this printer...

The Epson Stylus Color 880 has 4 LEDs. If all 4 are flashing or blinking then the printer has a maintenance request error. It means that the waste ink counter has reach its limit. The remedy is to replace the waste ink pads and reset the waste ink counter. You can use the SSC service utility to reset the protection counter. You can download the utility from here

You can also use the control paler to reset the counter. Timing is the key to success when you reset the counter using the control panel so keep that in mind. To reset the protection counter using the control panel (front panel):

Step 1.Turn the power on while holdint the following buttons doen. Paper feed, cleaning button. (thr paper out light will flash for 3 seconds)
Step 2.While the paper out light is still flashing press the cleaning button for 10 seconds. The following leds will flash in sequence Ink out lights black and color, Paper out light. Once the printer starts to initilize the counter should be reset. This will reset the protection counter.

My hp 2360 wont print, green light keeps on blinking, it says printer offline on the printer status bar

Make sure that cable to printer is attached and if printer still shows offline then in control panel for the printers make sure that you right click and choose Use Printer Online

What the flashing light means
The Power light can flash for several reasons:
? The printer cover is open.
? The printer is out of paper.
? A problem exists with the printer, such as a paper jam or a problem with a print

My lexmark blinks green but wont turn on everytime i try to turn it on it just spins for a second and goes right back to blink mode

The flashing green light probably means communication error, it is not normal.
These Dell/Lexmark comm. errors can be difficult.

Try this:
Start > Control Panel > Printers2_bing.gif and Faxes > RtClick Your Printer (default) > Properties > Advanced (on mine) > Check "Print Directly to Printer"
