    My machine flashes "scanner failure" and I just found out that the power strip is the cause of this. HP says to plug it directly into an outlet to prevent this problem. I am trying it now.

You probably have a bad scanner unit. It's not economical to have it repaired.

Epson Stylus PHOTO R220 red lights keep flashing


I hope this will help you :)
* Green Power light flashes- The printer is receiving a print job, replacing an ink cartridge, charging ink, or cleaning the print head.

* RED paper light flashes- Paper is jammed in the printer. Press the paper button to eject the jammed paper. If the light is still flashing , open the cover and remove all paper, including any jammed or torn pieces. Then reload paper and press the paper button to continue printing.
* RED Ink Light Flashes - One or more cartridges are low on ink. Check the message that appears on your screen to determine which cartridge is low, or follow the instructions in " Checking the Ink Supply". Make sure you have a replacement cartridge.
* RED Ink Light is ON- One or more cartridges are out of ink or not installed. If you have just installed a new cartridge, it may be incomaptible with the printer or incorrectly installed. Reinstall it or replace it with the correct cartridge
* RED Ink and RED paper lights flash alternately- The CD/DVD tray guide was left open when you turned on the printer or when printing on paper. Just simply close it/

How to solving an Epson Printer "problem"


I thought the other day that a lot of people may be interested in having access to the vast pool of knowledge that myself and my staff dispense on a daily basis to my customers. As a nationwide supplier of printing consumables we often get asked by customers about related problems they are having with there printers, and obviously we gladly help out anyone we can as opposed to customers having to call expensive manufacturers help lines at premium rate call tariffs.

A favourite question we get asked is "I have just gone to print something off on my Epson Inkjet printer and it will not print", I then ask the customer how they have done this and have they changed any printer settings or installed new software recently. The answer is usually no I have not changed any settings or installed any thing. Our next question is "What are the lights /buttons on the front of the printer doing?" The common answer is, "they are all flashing at once, even if I switch the printer off at the socket and switch it on again".

We now know what the problem is! There is I believe a method built into an Epson printer that counts the amount of printing you have done, a bit like a car speedo measures the mileage you have done, but unlike a car where when you hit a certain mileage a light or warning will come up at worst and tell you the car needs a service. The Epson printer just stops dead and all the lights flash, if you dig a little deeper into your instruction manual/disc it tells you to call the Epson help line, who then tell you the printer needs a service at your local Epson dealers. I duly took my faithful C82 epson printer to my local Epson service centre; very help full and who charged me and gave me back a printer that worked.

This intrigued me so I asked a couple of my computer tech customers if they could shed any light on the matter, and they both confirmed my suspicions. You plug in the correct software and reset the counter. It is nothing to do with your computer, your printer, your brand of inkjet cartridges or your computer. It is simply Epson's way of getting you to their service centre.

So if you come to print with your Epson inkjet printer and it will not, and then proceeds to flash all of its lights at you. You now know what to do, unlike quite a few of my customers including my self, who spent hours reinstalling software, trying new sets of cartridges, both genuine Epson cartridge and the more popular compatible ones. I hope this saves some one some grief and frustration.

I need to clear the inkjet heads on my Epson Stylus R220.


Follow the steps below to clean the print head using the Head Cleaning utility.
Make sure that the printer is turned on and the ink out light is off. Access the printer software. Click the Maintenance tab, then click the Head Cleaning button. Follow the on-screen instructions. The power light flashes while the printer performs the cleaning cycle. Never turn off the printer while the power light is flashing. Doing so may damage the printer. When the power light stops flashing, load a few sheets of paper and click Print Nozzle Check Pattern in the Head Cleaning dialog box to confirm that the print head is clean.

When i turn my printer on the light flashes green once and then orange 5 times. cannot get past this stage - any ideas?


Here are all the flashing explanations:

Two flashes: Out of paper or paper feed error

Reload the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

Three flashes: Paper jam

If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, reload the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

See Paper Jams

Four flashes: Empty ink tank

If you press the RESUME/CANCEL button, it will continue printing with an empty ink tank. After printing is finished, replace the ink tank immediately. If you continue printing with an empty ink tank, it may cause damage to your printer.

Refer to your Quick Start Guide for instructions on how to replace an ink tank.

Five flashes: No print head installed/Defective print head

Install the print head. Also, ensure that the protective tape has been removed.

If reinstalling the print head does not solve the problem, replace it with a new one. Contact the Customer Care Center.

Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full

The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, contact the Customer Care Center.

HP 2550 will not print. Green light flashes. I'm


If the machine is making "working noises" while it flashes, it is most likely calibrating. A good way to find out if the problem is due to connectivity issues with your computer is to turn the machine off, unplug for 1 minute, plug back in and turn on. Wait until the light is solid, indicating its ready to go, and then press and hold the green button until the lights flash. It should produce a demo print for you. If it doesnt, the problem may be with the printer, not the computer. Also, check in the "Printers and Faxes" settings in the control panel (if you are running windows) to see that the 2550 is set as the default printer.

BJC55 Printer not printing


There are some possibilities due to the above phenomena. Let's discuss about it:
1) If the POWER light is flashing green, then your printer is now warming up or performing maintenance procedure (replacing cartridge/tank) or cleaning print head, just wait a few seconds till the light stop flash. Also if the last page of a print job not done, this POWER light flashing green.
2) If the CHARGE/ERROR light is flashing orange with beep 3 times, it mean your cartridge need to be install (especially the 1st time turn on printer) or cartridge being replaced, just install the cartridge and press RESUME to continue.
3) If both POWER light is flashing green and CHARGE/ERROR light is flashing orange with beep 3 times, then your printer may facing a very serious error and maybe need a replacement.

Hope these help.
