    When I release the paper, and push the restart button on the printer, the pages shoot out with a symbol on it, usually 1 -3 per page for 30-40 pages until I cut the printer off and shut down the computer. I do believe it is a sensor as it acts like it has aproblem picking the sheet up, but where is it?

There is a paper sensor in the paper tray , it will detect where paper is present or tray is empty. may dust cover the sensor, clean the dust on sensor and check where the sensor is working or not

Machine stopped - alarm light flashing


just saw this yesterday. remove the top rear paper guide. on the left side between the tractor feed and the input slot for the paper, there is a sensor flag that pivots. check for paper scrap caught under the flag. it prevents the flag movement, causes a paper out alarm.

My HP LaserJet 4L printer just makes a grinding sound when I attempt to get it to print. It makes the sound for several seconds and then the Paper light starts to flash without printing


Common issue with these older 4L printers. The problem is a small plastic gear on the main drive motor has cracked. This is what causes the noise and since the machine is not "running" there is no paper feed and thus the paper jam light. Basically there is no drive to any of the printers components. May be hard to find a replacement motor these days but that is what you would need to fix the printer.

The light is blinking on my maching (i believe it's the ink--or lack of it). i'd like to find out if that is so, but i can't seem to find the route to that on my machine, which is a mac. How do i get that...


I can't tell you how you could find out on you Mac as I've never used one with my C86 but I can tell you that you can translate the light flashing into a more meaningful "message" by observing the patterns.

  • Paper & Ink lights flashing alternately (power light off) = service required (ie: waste pads need replacing)
    .
  • Ink light flashing = ink cartridge is empty or printhead is in the exchange position. Try pressing the ink button once (don't hold it down) and see if it moves to the exchange position or moves back to park.
    .
  • paper light flashing = paper jam or no paper in feed.. Remove a jam or feed it with paper as required then press the paper button
    .
  • Power light flashing = printer is busy... If it's doing nothing trying pulling the power lead out of the back of the printer, wait 5 seconds and then plug it back in, turn it back on. This should clear any error.
    .
  • Both ink and paper lights flashing (together) = General error.. This could be anything from a serious paper jam, loose wire in the printer, parking station disconnect or similar..

Hopefully that will give you something to go on and get you working again... As far as software information goes, someone else may be able to help but chances are Epson's own support site will have some software called Status monitor or similar for your operating system which may help.

There will still be some scrap of paper in the machine. Get a torch and get in there. It's the only way, unless you call tech guy

MISFED INDICATOR LIGHT FLASHING


There is no code to run.
Did the paper come out as an entire sheet? Or was it torn? There is either a small piece of paper that remains in the machine, or you dislodged a paper switch in removing the jam.

Paper tray is full and the paper light keeps flashing.


First check the machine for paper jams. If not, remove the paper from the paper tray and reinstall it. Then try to print from the MP tray.If this works, check paper size settings on the printer driver, or the small black arm which hangs down next to the paper pick up roller, and is the paper sensor.

Problem with HP PSC 1350 All-In-One InkJet Printer


All of the lights flash and it wont print or do anything else. The ink cartriges are new I replaced them right before it happened can you please help?

The red attention indicator light and the toner indicator light are both flashing together


ON your driver check that the paper size is correct and this most commonly occurs when the incorrect paper size is selected. For example if you are printing to A4 and you have letter size installed in the machine then the system will cause an error or jam when there is nothing there.

Also within word or which ever program you are using on the document goto file and then down to page setup once in there check the paper size make sure it's correct for the paper in your machine also check the paper source. Once you have done this check the paper tray guides are correctly against the paper turn on and try printing and hopefully this will work.

Thanks J
