UV PRINTER No brand...direct from China. Everything seems in working condition, all inks coming out well, UV light working well, belt good to go,practiced on a piece of wood to adjust colors.


Try putting paper in it, maybe paper jam is being confused with no paper at all. Something else besides paper could be jamming, or something could be wrong with the thing that feeds the paper to the ink.

Purge Counter Reset Instructions Please note that some of the terms used below to describe buttons may change from one printer to another. For example:
  • START may be down as MENU or SET on your printer or be a green button
  • STOP may be referred to as EXIT or a red button
Before you begin the reset procedure your Brother inkjet printer needs to be in maintenance mode, but depending upon the model of your printer the method of doing this will vary. For most modern Brother printers please try the following:
  1. With the printer turned on and ready to print remove the power cable from the printer (or turn the printer off if you have a fixed power cable).
  2. Hold down MENU/SET/START and re-insert the power cable/turn it back on.
  3. Keep the button held down until the screen reads MAINTENANCE.
If your screen does not now say MAINTENANCE it will need to be put into maintenance mode using one of the two methods below:
  • Printers with a built-in Fax: Hold down MENU/SET/START and quickly press * 2 8 6 4.
  • Printers WITHOUT a Fax: Hold down Menu/Set and the Black Start key before pressing the UP arrow four times.
Now your printer should say MAINTENANCE on the screen and you are ready to begin the process of actually resetting the purge counter.
  1. Type in 80 using the numerical keypad.
  2. Use the DOWN key to locate the purge counter. eg. PURGE0060025
  3. Use the number pad to enter 2783 (this should zero the numbers after PURGE).
  4. Press STOP/EXIT to return to the first stage of maintenance mode.
  5. Press 9 and 9 to exit maintenance mode.
Your purge counter is now reset and you can now resume printing as normal. If however this has not cleared the error message I advise going through this guide again following the instructions to the letter. If the error persists please let us know.

Why does my canon mg5420 say "printer not responding"


Whenever I hear of a "not responding" problem in the same sentence as "Wi-Fi" I question the wireless connection. I'm sure you've done the tests, but just to go over them; Is the printer working - can you get a test print out of it locally (setup)? Is the computer actually "talking" to the printer (Check network settings and local connections)? And, can you connect directly to the printer using a USB lead - and get a print? I would be tempted to tell the computer to find a new printer, in order to double check.

Printer doesn't respond via USB only WiFi


As my helper partner states, I quite agree but I would also use a different USB which the one you're using might be damaged, use another USB station cause maybe its also damaged. But if it states that the printer is offline...it will never print because its not selected as your active Printer. Actually you are sending the printing jobs to that printer wich is not active or recognized.

Ml 1666 reset


Could be a problem in the Print Spool, connection, or driver related. I would begin my ensuring that the intended printer is set to default and drivers have been updated. If the problem persists, you may need to reinstall the printer software to set defaults back due to corrupted files.

Office hero 6.1 will not turn off or respond.


I had same problem - just contacted Kodak live chat, they talked me through a couple of fixes which didn't work, so they ordered me a free replacement. The printer was 9 months old.
