    Thanks for your help. What ended up fixing the problem was holding dow the on button until all the lights started flashing then I hint the on button 10 or more times really fast. It took a few trys at this but it finally printed a test page and worked.



    Now a new problem....it jams on the first sheet of paper then after clearing that it works. Any suggestions for this glich?

Normal 0 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

    I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy
    paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print
    button
    applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it
    will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I
    have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there
    over time
    .


    Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this
    way, saving costly repairs.


    Hope this helps.
    Bud

My Xerox Phaser 6128MFP printer flashes a red light with a "Load paper in Tray" message, when the specific paper size and type are already same in the tray.


If the paper size is correct in the printer and the printer and it's possible to print off a test print in both the printer control screen or directly from the print driver utilities if that works then the only thing I can suggest is the item you want to print is defaulted to a different size. i.e. Check that the word processor your using is set to the size you have in the printer. Imperial size pages will look very similar on screen as does the A4. Printers don't automatically fix paper print sizes you just have to check and recheck for differences. Removing the tray only reafirms to the printer that the size might be incorrect and your going to fit the correct size.
As for the red light all printers behave differently in certain error conditions. Have you also tried to print out something you printed at a time the printer was working correctly. In other words try printing out a different file. Maybe, trying to print off a test print of one line of the alphabet, and then go from there.
Good luck,

Hi, I am using HP Laserjet 1020. In this printer red light not working. So printer is not working. How can i rectify this problem. When I give print out all document in queue with no error messages...........


If red light not working nothing will happen, printer has to print but in your case we can suspect power supply board or formatter.Step 1:Check printer initializing or not, are you find out any difference while initializing? Step 2:Check whether system recognizing the printer or not. If not replace with another formatter then confirm, even its same replace power supply board..

The black ink on my Brother DCP-130C won't print and it's a brand new ink cartridge. I thought it was a defected cartridge so I bought another one, same thing. The other 3 colours print ok though....


I have the same problem. Everything on the printer is working just fine. It'll do a test page just fine, so everything's working right. The %$^ thing just won't print. It makes noise like it's printing when you give it a print job, but it spits out blank pages.

Hi I am not getting any Red from my printer


It's possible magenta ink to be finished, or the print head is dirty and it has dry ink on it. You must clean it with hot water. You must use the printer from time to time to avoid to dry the ink cartridge or print head.

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.

Flashing red "check ink" lights and nothing is wrong with ink


Is there a resume button on the printer? If so press this, often printers will allow you to bypass a low ink message and print for a while longer.

C43 stylus does'nt print while red and green lights stay on


If the light are flashing, it mean waste ink full. You must clean waste ink pad, and reset the counter. You can use SSC, find at indoreset.blogspot.com. But,.. you said the light are on. try to resinstall driver. after printer recognised by comp, check status monitor. Green light on is power on, and red on mean chip error/ink out error/cartridge error.
