Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Replaced the black ink cartridge, which seemed to be ok but on closing the lid (in retrospect) found that the printer unit didn't go all way back to start position, and the lights on the front of printer now continually flash alternating orange and green. followed directions in manual; unplugged usb, switched off printer, pulled out mains plug and waited (about 1/2 hour) then plugged in, switched on and same thing. tried this several times, still no luck. even removed all cartridges and printer head then replaced them. still no luck....aaargh! the printer unit is kinda trying to fire up when i switch on, can hear all the whirring noises it usually makes but it doesn't move along the carriage anymore. never had a problem untill now...just when i desperalty need to print stuff off for weds morning :o( please help if you can, cheers, pat :o)
Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
