Re: Cannot print

There is either a paper jam or the printer thinks there is a paper jam, which could be a problem with the door interlock switch or the printer not recognizing the toner cartridge. It could also mean an issue with the formatter card. Open the toner door, remove the cartridge, and take a look inside at the paper-clip like springs which make contact with the metal contacts on the toner cartridge. Sometimes they can get bent on one side or bent down and not make contact with the cartridge. Straighten it out if it looks suspicious and reinsert the cartridge and see if the light goes away. Press in hard on the toner door to make sure the door interlock is working. If the motor turns when you first power on or when you open and close the toner door, the sensors and flags are probably in the right position, so it is probably not a jam issue. If the motor does not turn, then the sensor or flags might be an issue. The most common is the exit center in front of the fuser in the back.

We have the E260d. What does it mean when the light bulb flashes. We are unable to print. What can we do?

You can unplug the printer from the wall, then leave it off for about 30 seconds then plug it back in. That should reset the printer, if not read what the message says on the screen, or you may have to navigate through the settings to see the error message.

Flashing red "check ink" lights and nothing is wrong with ink

Is there a resume button on the printer? If so press this, often printers will allow you to bypass a low ink message and print for a while longer.

Problem printing from my acer aspire one

Can you provide a little more information. Is the printer green power light on but neither of the red lights. Does the printer just sit there doing nothing, or does it go through the motions of printing and produce a blank sheet. If it does nothing, can you check the print queue (double click the printer icon). If there are a mass of jobs waiting (all the times you've attempted to print something), right click and select cancel all jobs. When the print list is clear, right click the printer icon and select properties. Now click on test print. If nothing happens as before, cancel this job also. Then go to control panel and uninstall the Epson printer software (the "driver"). Reboot and reinstall the printer driver. Report back if it's still not behaving.

The led screen shows genera error

you need to reset your printer try doing this
  • Press and hold “Stop”, “Maintenance”, and “Power” buttons for about 10 seconds. A message will come on the screen saying counter is reset and to turn the printer off. The R200 and others don’t have a screen so just wait until the 10 seconds is up.
  • Turn the printer off, unplug the power cord. Wait about 1 minute and power the printer back up. The counter will be reset. That’s all there is to the reset procedure.

Xerox 8500 not printing

It sounds like you need to check your addressing. Sounds to me like your IP address reset back to default.
You need to go into the network settings and check your IP address and make sure it is set to manual and not auto.
I believe your printer did a reset and your address is wrong.

The printer apear to be dead!

Buttons and lights on the printer Two buttons and three lights are located on the front of an HP Deskjet printer.
  • The lights tell when the printer is working or when it needs attention.
  • The buttons help control the printer.
Buttons and lights Purpose c00123886.jpg POWER button and light Push the POWER button to turn the printer off and on. When lit, the light shows that the printer is turned on. c00123889.jpg RESUME button and light The light blinks when there is a problem with paper. When the problem is corrected, press the button. c00123892.jpg Print cartridge light The light blinks when there is a problem with a print cartridge. When the problem is corrected and the top cover is closed, the light will stop blinking. Troubleshooting blinking printer lights Blinking lights Reason c00123895.jpg

All lights are off. The printer is off (asleep).

Press the POWER buttonc00123886.jpg to turn the printer on.

The printer should turn on automatically when a print job is sent to it. c00123898.jpg

The POWER (top) light is on. The printer is idle.

The printer is ready to print a document. c00123900.jpg

The POWER (top) light is blinking. The printer is busy printing.

Allow enough time to print. When a document has many fonts or graphics or uses complex color such as a color photo, it takes longer to begin printing. c00123902.jpg

The PRINT CARTRIDGE (bottom) light is blinking. Possible causes:

  • The front cover is open. Make sure the front cover is completely closed.
  • The print cartridge is missing. Make sure the print cartridge has been installed correctly.
  • The print cartridge is broken or incompatible. Lift the front cover, and wait for the print-cartridge cradle to slide out. Check the part numbers on the print cartridge:

Black: 51645A

Color: C1823D,

If the print cartridges are compatible and correctly installed, they may be defective. Try replacing the print cartridges.

If none of the above suggestions fix the problem, and, if the error message still occurs, it may be a hardware failure. Call the HP Customer Support Center.

DELL AIO 922- All in one- Printer won't print

Remove the right ink cartridge (color). You will get an error saying the cartridge is empty, but ignore that. Hit cancel on your printer. Print your job...when your print screen comes up, under preferences check the box for print colors in black and white. Your printer should print just fine without the color cartridge. Ignore the flashing red light.
