Fax wont send or receive? I can here it ringing though wont send???


Try changing the cable from the phone wall outlet to the fax, when a incoming RING signal comes, with a bad phone cable (it is 90 volts AC) so the power to ring the fax can go through but not DATA, try pluging a standard phone in the wall outlet to see if it work's.... if the standard phone don't work than call the phone company's service desk, if the standard phone work's (initiating a call) than concentrate on the printer's trouble shooting guide...

Good luck!

Is it still under warranty?
If yes call HP.
If no...you could have a bad formatter or DC Controller.
What step does it get stuck at in the init process?

Will not do anything stuck on initializing!


Try a NVRAM initialization. Turn the printer off and before turning it back on hold down the right arrow and cancel buttons together while the device is powered back on.

Epson Stylus 1200 lights indicate carriage jam


This means that your Epson printer has come to its end of life. In short, Epson wants you to retire your printer and buy a new one. Your Epson printer may be in good shape which is often the case. But Epson has this build-in "feature" which they want you to buy a new one.

Unable to initialized


"Unable to Init" indicates a mechanical error, unless you're able to find a stuck paper or parts of a stuck paper or similar, you'll have to send the unit to service to have it fixed.

I have an Epson 2200 and the Light black ink light is on even thought I have a new cartridge in there. This is the second cartridge I've tried. Same thing. Any suggestions?


this means that your printer wast pad is full this is how you can reset your printer
  1. Turn off the printer power and unplug the power cord from the wall. Disconnect the computer interface cable at the back of the printer.
  2. After one minute reattach the power plug to the wall, but don’t reattach the computer cable.
  3. Hold down the ROLL and the PAPER ADVANCE buttons simultaneously.
  4. Turn the printer on. after 2 blinks, all the ink lights come on, then release the buttons being held down.
  5. Press and hold the ROLL button for 10 seconds.
  6. Release the ROLL button and the printer will initialize, which resets the Waste Ink Pad Counter.
  7. Once initialization is complete, turn the printer power off.
  8. Reconnect the interface cable.
  9. Turn the printer on and print a document.
  10. make sure you have got new wast pads in
