If this happens often and then eventually you are able to get back to work. I'll explain how these printers work.

When you send a print task to the printer, the data that is the construct for your document it resides on the printer in a temporary storage location called RAM. Once the instructions and the data are in RAM hitting the Cancel button will not have an effect until there is a break in the program execution to print. Sometimes nearly all the document will print before it cancels and this may take some time. The Cancel command must intercept a line of prgram execution. So just be patient.

If you need to immediately stop printing for some reason, the best thing is to pull the plug on the printer. Leave it unplugged for some time. As you put the power plug back in, press and Hold Cancel until the printer finishes the startup self check test, otherwise it may just pickup where it left off.

If this is a problem where no matter what you do, and the unplug replug while holding down the Cancel button doesn't clear your problem, unplug the printer again and look next to the digital clock at the bottom right of the PC screen. You may see an icon for your printer there. Double click that and you should see all the printer tasks listed in the printer que. Select all of those and then drop the file menu down and select cancel all or delete all.

Any question I didn't cover, please use the Text Box Comment area below to ask me another question.

SOURCE: officejet d135 - "Supply Expired" error message

HP, in order to sell more ink, monitors the expiration date of the cartridges installed. Solution is either to buy a new unexpired cartridge from HP or to disable the date monitoring built in to the printer. This latter is done by removing the button cell located inside the D135 printer on the left hand side or by simply slipping a thin piece of plastic between button cell and metal contact. You will no longer have date function on printer, but it won't object to expired cartridges either.

SOURCE: Operator error. Press printer's RESUME button.

Start by totally shutting down your computer system, NO lights should be visible or blinking.Now completely disconnect all cables and cords from your printer. Remove the electric cord from the wall socket. This should totally clear your printer. Wait 5 minutes and plug the power cord into the printer first, then attach the printer cable that comes from your computer, then plug your printer power cord into the wall socket. Now cold boot your computer. It should recognize your printer and you should be good to go.

When i turn my printer on the light flashes green once and then orange 5 times. cannot get past this stage - any ideas?


Here are all the flashing explanations:

Two flashes: Out of paper or paper feed error

Reload the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

Three flashes: Paper jam

If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, reload the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

See Paper Jams

Four flashes: Empty ink tank

If you press the RESUME/CANCEL button, it will continue printing with an empty ink tank. After printing is finished, replace the ink tank immediately. If you continue printing with an empty ink tank, it may cause damage to your printer.

Refer to your Quick Start Guide for instructions on how to replace an ink tank.

Five flashes: No print head installed/Defective print head

Install the print head. Also, ensure that the protective tape has been removed.

If reinstalling the print head does not solve the problem, replace it with a new one. Contact the Customer Care Center.

Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full

The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, contact the Customer Care Center.

I have just bought a new photoconducter unit and put it in the printer. Instructions talk about select, return buttons, menu buttons and exit buttons. My printer does not seem to have this. It only has the...


  1. Enter the printer's Configuration Menu. To do this:
  2. Turn off the printer.
  3. Open the front cover, as shown below.


    pattlnk_1122005_2111-enus20330_openfrontcover_e230_en_us.gif

  4. Press and hold the Continue (pattlnk_1122005_1857-enus20682_continuebuttonicon_e230_en_us.gif) button.
  5. With the front cover open and the Continue button pressed down, power on the printer.
  6. Hold the Continue button until all the lights cycle.
  7. When just the Error light (!) is displayed, close the front cover. The top four lights of the operator panel should come on, indicating that the printer is in configuration mode.
  8. Print the Configuration Settings page. To do this:
    • Press and hold the Continue (pattlnk_1122005_1857-enus20682_continuebuttonicon_e230_en_us.gif) button until all of the lights flash. This page lists the functions within the Configuration Menu. The functions are the non·indented items listed along the left edge of the page (along the bottom as printed from printer). They are also unshaded.

      Save this page for possible later use.
  9. Reset the photoconductor page count as follows:
  10. Press and release the Cancel button (pattlnk_1122005_1917-enus20682_cancelbuttonicon_e230_en_us.gif) to move sequentially from one menu item to another. NOTE: If you get lost, you can press and hold the Cancel button to jump to home state (top four lights on).
  11. Press and release the Cancel button until the Toner Low (pattlnk_1122005_215-enus20682_tonerlowbuttonicon_e230_en_us.gif) light is the only light left on.
  12. Press and hold the Continue button until all of the lights flash.
  13. Then release the button. When the Toner Low light is once again the only light left on, the photoconductor page count should be reset to zero.
  14. Return the printer to normal mode. To do this:
    • Power it off for five seconds and then turn it back on.
  15. Print a menu settings page. To do this:
    • When the Ready (pattlnk_1122005_218-enus20682_readylighticon_e230_en_us.gif) light is on, press the Continue button once. The Ready light will begin flashing and one or two pages will print out.
  16. Check the photoconductor reading on the menu settings page. To do this:
  17. Look for a section labeled Cartridge Information and locate the word Photoconductor under that heading.
  18. Confirm that the photoconductor level reading is OK or close to 100%.
  19. If the photoconductor reading is low, try printing 10 - 20 pages.
  20. Print the menu settings page(s) again. Confirm that the photoconductor level reading is OK or close to 100%.
  21. If the photoconductor reading is still low, refer to the Configuration Settings page you printed in Step 2.
  22. Confirm that Reset Photoconductor Counter is listed on the page.
    Also confirm that the light sequence for the photoconductor counter is the Toner Low light.
    • If the light sequence is correct, try repeating this entire procedure again from the beginning to reset the counter once more.
    • If a different light sequence is listed for the photoconductor counter, repeat the procedure but this time, instead of stopping at the Toner Low light (Step 3.2), press the Cancel button until the operator panel shows the light sequence that corresponds to the one listed on the Configuration Settings page. Continue with the remainder of the procedure as before to reset the counter again.
  23. If the photoconductor reading is still low after the page reset procedure has been performed twice, the printer may require service.
