    Thanks--as a matter of fact the light blinking is the one for the ink. I only changed the coloured ink, maybe I need to replace the black ink as well for it to work? Dang, I have to go get another ink cartridge! But I suppose that must be the problem.....thank you very much! :)

    Thanks, well I did try shaking the colour cartridge, and even got ink on my finger so I know the ink is flowing, it's brand new anyway--but the black ink cartridge is empty. Still it SHOULD work with just the one. Will NOT work, though. I would go buy another blank ink cartridge, but people on this site have said they tried that and it did not work, so why waste the money. Am thinking this is such a common glitch, probably why they discontinued the model no doubt. So whether to spend $30 more bucks or so for a black ink cartridge that most likely won't even work, or just call it a day and ditch this one and go buy a new printer....it will NOT be a HP though, I know that much......thanks very much for trying to help though, I appreciate it! :)

    Yeah, probably...I guess I'll just go buy the darn black ink cartridge, sigh...if that doesn't work, it's a new printer I guess, well they're not made to last forever for a REASON ($$$)....that's okay I'll just save money by changing my cat's litter box less frequently or something, LOL ...thanks again!... :)

Are you out of ink? when you open the lid to the printer while it is turned on look at were your ink cartridge stops and that will tell you if you are out of colour or black ink. Which light is blinking the one on top of the paper symbol or the one on top of the ink symbol. It may be that your cartridge either black or white just need to be taken out and put back in I found that if I wiped the bottom of the ink cartridge where sometimes you get build up that it would work again or give it a shake but make sure you cover up the bottom were the ink comes out before you shake it. Hope this helps!

    Still try to wipe the bottom of the cartridge and give it a shake sometimes this will give you a bit more ink to play with before you are totally out, funny thing while I was writing this my printer started doing the same thing lol!

    I don't think it will work with just one cartridge I'm sure HP programed it this way so you would have to spend more money and get another cartridge, its a pain isn't it!

Is there an inexpensive manual avail for TDC Vivid Mainliner 300 slide proj.?


I see manuals on eBay for around $14 but nothing cheap or free. It's unfortunately one of those that is just rare enough that nobody wants to cut anything lose. Sorry... You might try a Google search if you are having a specific problem - sometimes you can find a support or community forum that has a thread about the issue.

Good luck

Prinnter not printing but showing 'put custom in manual tray'


There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.


Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle


When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.

How does the bulb look? Is it bright or kind of dim. The bulb warming error is designed to halt use of the machine until the scanner bulb reaches the correct output level. As these are basically a flourescent tube, they will dim over time and at a certain point they will not generate enough light to enable proper scanning. If the bulb is dim, it will require replacement.

Samsung kicked out hp 3in 1 printer already installed


Don't have your HP designated as the default printer (if possible)when you hook up the Samsung. When the Samsung is hooked up it sees the HP is the default printer. Well it can't have that, they discard the HP drivers. What does Samsung care about HP drivers theres only one printer port setup and thats the USB port you have them sharing. So yes you need to get a second cable. Tim
