Printer won't turn off


Check the power supply cords; make sure they are attached properly. If you are using a power strip, surge protector or any other device where the power supply cord is not plugged directly into a wall outlet, bypass them and plug the printer into a wall outlet; see if that changes anything.
If that doesn't work, remove the printer's power cord from the outlet and all the other cables that the printer connects to the computer to.
Wait 5 or 10 minutes for the printer's CMOS and RAM chips to power off completely.
After enough time has elapsed, plug only the printer's power cord into the wall outlet (do not hook up any of the communication cables in e.g. USB, or serial cables, or network cables.)
Then press the power "on" button.

If the error message is gone, power off the printer.
Uninstall the printer and all its programs from the computer.
Do a clean install and follow the procedures of hooking up the printer as though you are installing it for the very 1st time.

You may have to obtain firmware and/or software updates from HP on your specific printer.

You may also have to check with your OS vendor to make sure you have all the updates/service packs on your PC or laptop

Fax says phone off hook


  1. Unplug the power cord from the back of the printer and from the wall outlet. Reconnect the power cord to the wall outlet, but don't connect the power to the printer just yet.
  2. Perform a partial reset by disconnecting the power cord from the wall. Then, hold the # and 3 while reconnecting the power cord. Release the buttons once the cord is plugged in. When you release both buttons, the issue should be resolved.
  3. Perform a semi-full reset if the partial reset did not work by pressing and holding # and 6 while reconnecting the power cord to the printer and hold for 1 min after plugging in the power cord. When you release both buttons, the issue should be resolved.
  4. Verify that the phone cables are properly inserted into the wall jack and the back of the printer if you are receiving a "Phone off the hook" error message.

Bought non kodak cartridges and it won't work???


Kodak specifically recommends using genuine Kodak cartridges in their printers in their literature.
Please don't use generics in Kodak printers, is essentially what they say to do if malfunctions occur.

Good luck on this repair.

How do I hook my computer up to my mfc-5840cn printer. I have a usb cord but dont know were to hook it up to the printer


There is a spot under the scanner cover of the unit (under the glass). On the right side of the machine you will see a place for youre hand to lift open the scanner cover. One plugin is for USB cable and the other for Ethernet cable.

Also there is a spot for the wire to go through on the right side, a small grove to place the wire so that the cover closes properly.
(still under scanner cover) so it goes out the back.

My scanner isn't working


I suspect you didn't install the full software for the all-in-one on your laptop. Thus you got a generic driver from the OS. If you have the generic driver, uninstall that one, unplug the USB cable and install the software from http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=2610&modelid=12764#DownloadDetailAct and pick your OS. When the program prompts you to connect the USB cable to the computer, do so.
Another issue may be that you haven't programmed the MP Navigator with destinations for the buttons on the scanner or you don't have the monitor running to identify when the scanner buttons are pressed.

If you can start a scan from the computer, it is probably one of the later two issues.

I hope this helps.

(the generic driver from the OS usually only runs the print functions on an all-in-one.)
