Re: failure

EMT, sounds like the printer is having a seizure. You need to unplug the printer from the machine and unplug the electric. Turn off the computer. Plug in the printer electrically(if the printer still blinks furiously the printer is fried) in it turns on normal, plug the printer into the computer and turn on the computer. If the computer boots up the the printer starts spazzing again its the printer drivers(most likley). In that case again unhook and unplug the printer go the the HP site and download the latest and great est drivers and go through the installation process . Tim

The top light of the two is flashing green/red back and forth very fast and the light on the bottom is a solid red. how do I fix this so that way it will work normally

The steady lower light indicates the unit needs a new toner cartridge, MLT-D108S. Did you previously see this light blinking or blinking rapidly? (Those indicate the toner being low.) Replace the cartridge and check for any other error lights. Turn off the machine and let it cool. Then open the front cover and pull the old toner cartridge. Open the package with the new cartridge, remove the packing tape and paper that protects the cartridge and gently shake it (avoid touching the blue or green parts of the OPC drum). Press the cartridge into the slot until it is fully seated. Close the front cover.

The green/red blinking power light is not one I'm seen before. The printer indicates a non-toner failure (open cover, no paper, LSU failure, etc.) with a steady red light.

Both ink and rubbish light is flashing and wont go off

Rubbish light?? Do you mean the paper light is flashing?

When both the ink and paper lights are flashing together and the power light is off, the printer has an internal failure. Turn the printer off, wait a little while and turn it back on. If the error persists, decide if the printer is worth servicing. Since it is no longer sold by Epson, I assume it is out of warranty.

If the ink and paper lights are flashing in an alternating pattern, something may be blocking the print head from moving. Check for jams and clear them. If the error persists, it's service time (if you want to spend a minimum of ~$50 for diagnosis).

I wish that I could be of more help.

Green and yellow is a service error, but it flashes a longer green, and then the green yellow flashes, and a longer green again. You need to count the number of yellow-greens in between the longer green flashes, to know the error code.

Scanner failure-no longer prints

Hi, I'll give your situation a "stab in the dark" solution. It sounds like you are in the final stages of "scanner system failure". The beginning stages usually limits the all-n-1 to print only i.e., no scan and no fax but you may have such a severe scanner bulb situation that is preventing the print function and may be causing hazardous conditions within your printer and it will do nothing to prevent further harm or damage. Can you describe your situation a bit more detailed?

D125xi problem

Hi if you open the left part of the front cover, after you released the the top (scanner) to lift off, you will be able to find a batterie. Remove the batterie and try again. All should be done when the unit is powered off and disconnected from USB. BR Karlh.
