The green power light keeps blinking and it won't print, it says it is not getting a connection


Thank you for using fixya.com.

The computer is not detecting your printer. Here's what you need to do:

1. Check all the connections or Reset the connection between your computer and your printer.
2. Press and hold the power button of your printer for 5 seconds to do a power cycle. The printer will turn off.
3. Turn it back on.
4. Print something.

If no go,

1. Uninstall and reinstall the driver of your printer. You can access the driver in Control Panel>Add and Remove Programs. After un installing the driver, put the disc of your printer into your computer's DVD player. Follow the onscreen instructions.

2. Print Something.

If no go, let me know by posting in this thread.

Thank you,

Cannot print. Triangle light blinks, I push the green button and it starts turning but almost sounds like it cannot grab the paper. Tray is not too empty or too full.


If the "attention" light is the only light on (in your case blinking) that means that the print cartridge door is open. Pull out the cartridge and make sure that the door closes. Install the cartridge and close the door.

Service error 5100?


This error means that there is something obstructing the printing process. Check inside your printer through the gears that you can see under the lid. There should be something obstructing the gears such as dirt or in my case popcorn. There was even some paper caught underneath the rollers that I had to jiggle around to even see. Check VERY thoroughly.

5100 is a carriage error, check the timing strip for contamination(plastic strip about 1/4" in width)
The unit is not homing, check for obstructions.
1. clean **** strip film
2. clean **** strip film sensor (back of head carriage)(use contact cleaner)
Also, try this reset procedure:

1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not,
press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal..
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I need to know what the error codes 5100, and 5700 mean, and what causes those errors to come up on the screen. Thank you


Try resetting the printer:

1) Close the print head cover, and turn off the printer. While pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press the Power button. (Do not release the buttons. The LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (Do not release the Power button.)

3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button three times, and then release the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.) During initialization, the LED blinks in green.

4) When the LED stops blinking and lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the 4 times. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.)

5) Press the Power button. The LED lights in green, and the selected function is performed. (When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.)

6) Power off then back on and test.

Flashing Green Light/ Computer can't communicate with printer......


Hi. The flashing code signifies that there is a fault with the connection between the ink cartridge and the printer - usually because either the tape is still on the cartridge or maybe some glue from the tape still on the contacts. In my case, I think the cartridge was simply knackered, so I threw it away and opened yet another ink cartridge. It now works fine.

If you want to test yours, simply take out both ink cartridges, and re-insert them one at a time. If you've put a working cartridge in the flashing will stop; if you've put the dodgy one in it'll still flash. Just replace the dodgy one.

Hope this helps.
