SOURCE: printer won't print

I've had this 6110xi all-in-one for a few years now. Everytime I have the "no-printing" issue I need to unplug the printer, and leave it unplugged overnight. The problem magically goes away in the morning.

I've installed the printer on a separate computer while it was having a "no-printing" episode and still couldn't print there either. So it sounds like there's something funky with the printer internal cache requiring a long power-down.

SOURCE: GReen light keeps flashing and my printer wont print

two options
1)either any of the printer cartridge is faulty.remove the cartridge and clean it with tissue paper.
2)or the printouts are pending in printque.delete all the printouts and then try .
any one of the above options will solve the problem.
if cleaning the cartridge does not solve that means it faulty so replacement of cartridge is necessary.

SOURCE: lights flashing, printer won't print as a result of a paper jam

Hi Girlemom. Just had the same problem here. Lift up the lid and slide the ink cartridges to the left. If they are stuck in the middle, this will prevent the printer from starting properly. Then, unplug it, plug back in, and turn on. It should restart normally.

SOURCE: Red light flashes but the printer wont print

This error occurs when the chips on the cartridges are not recognised. Re-seat all cartridges and ensure they are pushed down firmly. Sliding a business card down the rear of the cartridges will help push the chips into the sensors for recognition. If this fails the chips may be faulty OR have been short circuited - note that even one faulty chip is highly unlikely, get it services to get the problem fixed.

Kyocera fS-920KX. Not printing


There are actually some certain meaning on the red light and green light showing different information to user. The summaries are:
1) Green On, Red Off = Printer Ready.
2) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Fast-Flashing = Printer warm up.
3) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Off = Printer off-line.
4) Green Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Processing Data.
5) Green Off, Red On = Cover Opened, Toner Empty or Developer Unit / Drum unit missing.
6) Green Off, Red Fast-Flashing = Paper Jam or waiting for jam reset.
7) Green Off, Red Slow-Flashing = Paper Empty or Paper tray is not inserted.
8) Green Off, Red Off = Printer power is off.
9) Green Very-Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Printer in sleep mode.
10) Green (any condition above), Red Slow-Flashing = Toner low or paper empty.

So what is your printer condition? Better know what is going on your printer so can solve the problem

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
