SOURCE: MY EPSON D88 PRINTER HAS 2 FLASHING LIGHTS

This is usually caused by a problem with the chip(s) on the new cartridge.

Check that the chips are clean, and are correctly installed on the cartridge(s) (some can be knocked out of alignment and thus not connect properly).

Also check for any damage to the tiny wires in the printhead where the cartridge sits.. These can also become soiled with fluff, etc... Be VERY careful if you try to clean these as they are very delicate and if broken off you will have a broken printer.

Last thing is of course to check you have the correct cartridges... A common one with the D88 is to have C86 cartridges which are not compatible at all (different' chips!).

Hope that helps.

SOURCE: I cancelled a print job from the Vista Printers

hi,

you need to delete the jobs and print the stuffs...

you need to give the following commands in the command promt which can be accessed from the start menu or by clicking "windows key+r"

net stop "print spooler"
to stop the print spooler

after you have stoped the print spooler
Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder

You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print – delete these files.

SOURCE: MF8180C Check paper size error

for god's sake don't ring canon customer service as they are useless and just keep directing me to their **** driver which is causing the problem. i could not convince them that my "printer properties" "paper available" was locked on "letter" and won't allow me to change it. even when i go to the "printer preferences" page and set everything to a4 and press "apply" it still is locked on "letter" in the "printer properties" page. Iv'e probably wasted about 20 hours on this and my office has nearly ground to a halt. If i knew it was going to be this much bother i could have just bought another brand printer.

Any old print jobs still in queue? Click on printer icon in task bar or through control panel printers, cancel all print jobs if any pending. Make sure no paper jam in the paper feed of printer. Reinstall drivers. Make sure there is ink in the cartridges.

Print queue stops document and will not resume


Hi,

Clearing the Print Queue in Windows:

Open the Print Queue
  • Windows 98 - click Start, Settings, Printers
  • Windows XP - click Start, Printers and Faxes
    or click Start, Control Panel, Printers and Faxes
  • Windows Vista - Start, Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, Printers
Double-click to open the appropriate printer's queue. The Print dialog box will open. Here you will see a list of all of the jobs waiting to print, along with the status of each job. The first print job is at the top of the list.
To cancel a document in the list, right-click it and select Cancel Printing. Most often, it is better to cancel all of the jobs and then resend the documents to the printer.
Cancel All Documents
  • Windows 98 - click Printer on the menu, select “Purge Print Documents”
  • Windows XP - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
  • Windows Vista - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
Please note that you must have Administrative rights in Windows XP and Vista to cancel print jobs. If you are the only user, you automatically have administrative rights. If you are on a multi-user computer, you must be an administrator. If are on a network and get a message saying that you do not have Administrative rights, find someone who does.
Under normal circumstances, printing documents are cancelled and will disappear from the queue. If one or more do not disappear, shutdown the computer and restart. When shutting down, you may get a message warning you that your print jobs will be lost if you continue. Tell Windows to shutdown anyway. When you restart, Windows may tell you that you have print jobs waiting. Tell Windows to delete them.
Before you resume work, open the Print Queue from the Start menu. You should find the queue empty. If you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista and the queue is not empty, you will be unable to print. Before trashing your computer, you can try to clear the queue using a secret Windows command.
Click Start, Run, and type “Net Stop Spooler” (without the quotes). Then press Enter. Shutdown the computer and restart. The print jobs should be removed. If they are not, shut down the computer again, take a deep breath, and then go for a long walk. The queue should be clear when you return. Note that you must restart the computer for your printers to resume normal operation.


Goodluck,

Troubleshooting

  1. Clear all print jobs waiting to be printed from the computer before turning off the printer. To fully clear all print jobs you will need to restart the computer. See the following Related Articles if you require help with this step:
  2. Once you have cancelled the print queue and restarted the computer, hold down the button-paper_trash.gif Paper/Bin/Cancel button or dx4400stopbutton.jpg Stop / Clear button for 3-5 seconds.
  3. Power off the printer/All-In-One. After it has powered off, also turn it off at the power point or disconnect its power cable, if possible.
  4. Open the printer lid/scanner unit to make sure any tape securing the ink cartridge holder/print head has been removed. Some printers have a plastic block which helps prevent the ink cartridge holder from moving during transit - make sure that this has been removed/is not in place.
  5. Check for any foreign objects inside the printer that may be causing an obstruction to the print head. Check for torn pieces of paper around the front of the printer and the ink cartridge holder/print head. Carefully remove any paper or other obstructions from the paper path and inside the printer by hand.
  6. Check that the ink cartridge holder/print head is positioned on the right side of the printer (as you look at it from the front). If it is positioned on the left, see the following Related Article: How can I resolve the issue where the print head positions itself on the left / does not return to its home position?
  7. Close the printer cover/scanner unit. Press the On button to power on the product. If the error message still appears, contact your dealer or EPSON.

Warning lights blink upon startup, printer freezes


If the lights flash alternately then it is probably your waste ink pads that need cleaning
If the lights flash continuously check your printer for any outstanding documents in the print queue and cancel them then try again

Epson stylus sx205 won't print on my macbook pro


Def sounds like a driver error, do you get a yellow mark next to your printer driver or is it ok?

You could try & see if there is a more recent driver from epsons website

Similar problem


Oh, apart from the interesting non-standard lights, you may well be able to solve the problem by emptying the print queue to get rid of the gibberish document. Double click your printer icon (start-control panel -printers and faxes) to bring up the print queue. Right click the queue and select cancel all. Once they are cancelled, turn the printer off and on - have the error lights gone? If so, print a test page, if not, report back.

I have (4) documents to print, but it won't print. It says: 4 document(s) pending owner


To cancel a print job in Windows you can use one of the following two methods:

CANCELLING A PRINT JOB WITH THE PROGRESS METER:
When you send a print job to the printer, the Status Monitor will appear in the bottom right corner of your screen. Another printer icon for the PROGRESS METER will also appear in the taskbar while printing is taking place. This PROGRESS METER is there so you can manage print priorities or cancel print jobs.

1. Highlight the print job in the PROGRESS METER box.
2. Click on DOCUMENT and CANCEL, or, right click on the job name and left click CANCEL or DELETE.
3. Confirm cancelling the print job.

CANCELLING A PRINT JOB FROM THE PRINTERS WINDOW:
If no PROGRESS METER appears, you can access the document queue in this fashion:

1. Open START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS (START, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS and FAXES in Windows XP).
2. Right click on your Epson printer name, left click PURGE PRINT JOBS (98,ME), or CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS (2000,XP). (Or, double-click on the printer name to see and modify the status of documents in queue.)
3. Confirm cancelling all documents.

Keep in mind that once information has been sent to the printer it resides in the spooling folders within Windows. It may a while for printing to stop as this data clears the system.

If the printer continues to print (ie multiple copies of a cancelled job, or garbled print) remove the rest of the paper from the printer and allow it to run out. Once an "out of paper" type error appears on your screen, cancel the documents. Once all print job information has deleted, reload the paper and press the paper feed button once to clear the red light and return the printer to a ready state.
