I have an HP Photosmart 7260 printer that my cousin gave to me used so I have no manual. I've replaced both ink cartridges and am trying to print. When I send the print job, a red light begins to flash...


Can you see any symbol when the red light flashes? or any message pops up on your computer? Since your problem's description isn't very specific, I am unable to assume myself. If cartridges are replaced with new ones and the problem persists, it's possible that there's paper jam or carriage jam or contacts on the printer is bad/dirty. While the machine is On, lift up the front access door and try moving the carriage manually. Please follow this LINK to clean the contacts.
Please post back with more specific details so that I can help you better. Good Luck.

Have not used my Epson R1800 for almost 6 months. When I turn on the power the printer head, with the cartridges, stayed at the very right end, not moving. The paper and ink lights flash and the head just...


Your User's Guide is available here:

http://files.support.epson.com/pdf/r1800_/r1800_ug.pdf

After leaving the printer inactive for a extended period you should expect the ink cartridges to be dried up and the print head 'gummed' in place.

You will need to refer to page 82 of the pdf, Cleaning the Printer.

As part of cleaning remove the existing ink cartridges and while the cartridges are removed try and clean the print head of any ink residue. Note that if the red light is on or flashing above an ink cartridge the printer sees it as empty (dried up).

The print head will not move if ink cartridges need replacement; replace ink cartridges according to the red lights, likely all. Press the ink button to see if the printer will begin the charging cycle. If all is well the green power light will stay on and the red ink light will go out.

If you do not get this desired outcome try Cleaning the Print Head, page 73 of the User Guide. Hold down the ink button when the red light is off for 3 seconds. Run a nozzle check pattern; if nozzels are not printing a clean pattern, repeat this process up to 3 or 4 times.

Two red lights flashing on & off


This error means that some mechanical parts of your printer is in trouble. This could be some of the causes:

1. The print head is stuck somewhere or is unable to move because of some blockage in the printer's bay.
2. If you are using a Continuous Ink System, then the tubes might have blocked the print heads from moving.

To resolve, turn OFF your printer. Remove such blockage then turn the printer back ON.

Blinking red light, unable to turn off or print


From the looks of your printer. I'd say that one of your ink has a problem. The part where you put the cartridge in, is where your problem lies. YOu'll prob need to get it checked out by an HP dealer.

try changing the ink cartridge and see if that helps.

Error 30


I have the MFC 465CN - I was receiving two error codes:
Unable To Clean - Error 30
Unable to initialize

To fix, I first cleared the memory by unplugging the printer, then holding down the red stop/exit button, keep it held, power up the printer, and dont let up the button until it finishes the start up.

I then pressed the "ink" button and performed a cleaning, alignment, and quality check. After this, everything worked fine.

DO NOT try to print anything from your computer or have any pending print jobs while doing this - it appears that pending print jobs, or anything in the printers memory was interferring with the initilization and cleaning cycle it performs.

Hope this helps...
