If you think the printer is still functional, go to the Control Panel, then Printers and Faxes. Check to see if that printer is designated as the default printer; if not, reset it to default. If it is set properly, highlight and delete the printer.
With the printer on and connected, reboot your PC. Windows should 'find' 'new' hardware and reinstall a fresh copy of the driver for it.
MicroSoft loves having Windows corrupt the drivers now and then so we have something to do . . .

I have a dell optiplex 330 that is showing blinking amber light when put the system on.kindly advice on what to do to resolve this?


The pattern of the blinking can tell you a lot. if you can get the pattern and then reference the following site it can tell you the cause and some steps to remedy the situation.

Support Article This is a Dell Article that explains the various Blink Codes it covers the entire OptiPlex line, including all the changes that were made through the years.

Another option would be to print out the relevant portion of that page and keep it for future reference as well.

My printer is offline. I have an HP deskjet 3930. I have tried unplugging, disconnecting, turning both printer & comp. off. The green light just keeps blinking. I've cleared all printing.


The green lights blink during the starting phase of the printer. If it doesn't stops blinking then the starting process never finishes, which means that the processor of the printer or the firmware circuit have failed. The only way to replace those is to replace the entire mainboard, and that would cost more than a new printer altogether.
This printer is dead, time for a new one.

HP4550 - 49.00FF service error


Turn off the RAM disk on the printer.

Follow these steps:

Troubleshooting steps

1.
Verify that the formatter light is blinking or steady. If the formatter is blinking, it is functioning properly and probably does not need to be replaced. If the formatter light is not blinking, proceed to Step 2.
2.
Turn off the printer and unplug the power cord.
3.
Remove the HP Jetdirect card, third-party device, hard disk, parallel cable, or IFR cable from the formatter if one is installed.
4.
If the error continues with accessories removed from the formatter, perform a cold reset on the printer. Ensure the HP Jetdirect card is not in the printer during a cold reset or the card settings will be changed back to default settings. To perform a cold reset, do the following:
1.
Turn on the printer.
2.
Watch the control panel.
3.
When the memory starts counting, press and hold the green (Select ) button.
4.
Continue holding the green check button until the Ready, Data, and Attention lights flash once, and then stay on steady.
5.
Release the check button when the Ready, Data, and Attention light are on steady.
The control panel will display SELECT LANGUAGE .
6.
Press (Down Arrow ) button once. The control panel will display COLD RESET
7.
Press (Select ). The printer will perform a cold reset and then continue its power-on sequence.
5.
If the printer comes up to ready, print a Configuration page. If a 49 error occurs from printing internal pages, continue on to the next step.
6.
Turn the printer off and unplug the power cord.
7.
Remove the eight screws around the formatter.
8.
Remove the formatter. See Figure 1.
9.
Reseat the firmware and memory modules on the formatter. Check for any DIMMs that are non-HP and remove them. Non-HP DIMMs are not supported by HP and may cause this error. Replace with HP DIMMs, if necessary.
10.
Reseat the daughter (interconnect) board. The daughter board is connected to the formatter behind EIO slot #1. To release the daughter board, push in the black retaining tab underneath the formatter then lift up the one side of the daughter board.
11.
Reseat the daughter board.

12.
Install the formatter.
13.
Turn the printer on again.
14.
If it comes up to READY , print a configuration page. If a 49 error does not appear from printing internal pages, or at power up, continue to the next step.

15
Install the HP Jetdirect card and hard disk before installing the formatter. Verify that each device is properly seated.
16
Test any EIO devices, by turning off the printer, installing each device separately, and printing a Configuration page. Repeat for each EIO device.
17
If the 49 error occurs with any EIO device installed, replace that EIO device.

"Manually feed" Prints only first page and the orange lights keeps on blinking. If press the green button will print again.


Your pickup wheel doesn't seem to function good enough. Just have a look if something is obstructing the normal functioning of the rubber wheel.

Black light & print cartridge light is blinking. I changed the black cartridge but did not change the color cartridge cause I never use color. Both are in the printer. Black Light is blinking and...


Unfortuantely , to solve the issue , sadly, yes you will have to replace the empty cartridge to continue to use the printer in a normal fashion. Its a sneaky and dirty trick many printer manufactuers do to make more money off of the customer through the purchase of printer ink.

Same proble (getting unwanted alignment form when not needed


ok i need you to follow these steps.

1.unplug the USB cable from the printer.

2.take one of the alignment pages and put it face down on the glass of the scanner and press the scan button.

3.when it is doing this the on light will blink. wait until the on light stops blinking.

4.turn thr printer off and than turn it back on. it should not print another alignment page.

If it does you will need to buy new HP cartiges.
If they have been refilled multipyle time sometime the printer will not register that the printer has been aligned already.
let me know what happens.
