Clicks and In Use/Memory Button is flashing

About once a second, it makes a clicking noise and the In Use/Memory button is flashing. It won't print but will photocopy from the back paper tray only.

    Actually, the fax part of it isn't hooked up and never has been, so we don't have it plugged into any telephone jack. Sorry, I should have said that earlier. We use only the print, copy, and scanner functions.

You have the phone line plugged into the wrong jack on the machine. The line from the wall should plug into the jack labeled "L". The other jack is for a telephone or answering machine.

    What port is the USB cable plugged into? If it is in either the "L" port or the one with the telephone icon, you could get the same symptoms, as those two ports are for phone lines only.

How to print a configuration page from an HP LaserJet P1102w


freginold_0.jpg

The HP LaserJet Professional P1102w is a compact wireless desktop printer. It is very easy to set up and use. Unlike larger HP printers, the P1102w does not even have a true operation panel; it only has a power button, a cancel button, and a wireless button.

However, like just about every other HP printer, the P1102w has the ability to print out a configuration page that displays many of the printer's settings and statistics. This page is called the self test / device configuration page, and on it you can find the printer's page count, number of paper jams (broken down by section), amount of available memory, network settings, and more.

To print the device configuration page, make sure the printer is on and ready. The green light on the top left side of the printer should be lit. If the red light is lit or flashing, then there is a problem with the printer -- such as no toner or a paper jam -- and you won't be able to print the configuration page until the problem is rectified. You'll also need to have at least one sheet of paper loaded into the paper tray. Make sure the two side fences and the rear fence are snug against the paper to prevent misfeeding.

Press and hold the cancel button (the button with the red X on it) for about four seconds. The printer will warm up and begin making noise, and the green light will start to flash -- when these two things happen, you can release the cancel button. The printer will print out the configuration page, face down, and once it has finished the green light will stop flashing and the printer will quiet down.

The paper light is flashing. The tray has paper, there is no paper jam. I check everything, put tray back in, press go and after a few seconds, there is a click noise and it starts flashing. What do I do?


The light flashing may mean more things, not just a paper jam. Could mean any of the following:
- Front cover is open: Close the front cover of the printer.
- Back cover is open: Close the back cover of the printer.
- Paper jam: Clear the paper jam. To see paper jams and how to clear them, click here. If the printer does not start printing, press the Go button.
- No paper fed manual feed slot: Put the paper back in the manual feed slot.
- Memory full: The printer memory is full and the printer cannot print full pages of a document. To solve this problem, click here.
- Print overrun: A print overrun occurred and the printer cannot print full pages of a document. To solve this problem, go here.
- Drum Error: The corona wire needs to be cleaned. To see how to clean the corona wire, click here.

Epsom cx3200 off brand ink refill


Make sure the print head nozzles are not clogged. You may need to clean the print head. This unclogs the nozzles so they can deliver ink properly. Print head cleaning uses ink, so clean it only if quality declines.

When you don't turn on your EPSON CX3200 for a long time, the print quality can decline. It's a good idea to turn on your EPSON CX3200 at least once a month to maintain good print quality.

1. Make sure the EPSON CX3200 is turned on but not printing, and the Error light is off.
If the Error light is flashing or on, you may need to replace an ink cartridge.
2. Press the left Menu button on the control panel several times until you see Cleaning and then press the Copy button.
Cleaning takes about 30 seconds, during which the EPSON CX3200 makes some noise and the Operate light flashes. Never turn off the EPSON CX3200 while the Operate light is flashing, unless the EPSON CX3200 hasn't moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes. setViewedFAQCookie(14082, 31605);
