In Use Memorykeeps flashing and clicking


Hi,

This is what usually happens " THE USB CORD IS IN THE PHONE JACK AND THE FAX THINKS THAT THE PRINTER IS "ON HOOK."

Follow the steps below to fix the issue.

The thing is, in the back of the printer you have a column of jacks, the one on top has an icon of a phone and the one on bottom has a picture of an "L" or laptop. TAKE YOUR USB CORD OUT OF EITHER ONE OF THOSE, NO MATTER WHICH ONE IT MAY BE. What you may not have figured out by now is that there is a THIRD jack that is not anywhere near those two. If you're facing the front of the printer to the far right of the backside of the machine, there is this deep cavity that has your third, miracle jack in it. It's even more to the right than the two jacks I described previously and its icon looks like a sideways, three-pronged cactus. Plug the square end of the USB cord into that jack, and the In Use/Memory light should stop blinking, and your printer can stop acting like car because the annoying, turn-signal clicking should stop as well. :)

You're problem was probably the same as mine, when you moved your printer, you neglected to find your instructions manual (because you probably neglected to put that in a safe placed too lol) and you forgot which jack the USB cord went into.



Regards,
Ron

    Printer offline flashing light will not delete job


    An offline condition can be caused by using third party ink or refilled cartridges.

    To delete a print job that does not release the spooler, look at the bottom right of your screen. You should see a small printer icon. Double click on that icon to open the print queue Highlight the failing print job and then delete it.

    Hl-4070cdw prints booklets with upside down pages


    I had the same problem and finally figured it out.

    When you select print and the print window comes up:
    select Printing Preferences or Properties (depends on program you are using),
    select the Advance tab,
    select the icon that has 'A' and 'B' on two pages (near the top left),
    select Booklet Printing. (then Okay and Okay/Print, depends on program)

    In all honesty, I'm can't remember if this is what I selected to fix the problem, but the choice is on this page. Try this with each choice of "Flip on Left Edge" and then "Flip on Right Edge".
    If neither works, unselect Booklet Printing and try "Flip on Top Edge" and if that doesn't work, try "Flip on Bottom Edge". Etc.

    I know the solution is on this screen so experiment until you find it.
    Good Luck!

    Printer not printing documents sent to it


    Your talking about the LED with a horseshoe Icon. This LED should be green and it means the printer is ready to print if this the only LED lit.
    If this LED is flashing, it means its processing some print job or is printing something.

    MY Epson Stylus C60 wont print


    This means that your printer is trying to print from the wrong serial port connection, as your printer should be connected via a USB cable. Go to start>control panel>printers and faxes. Double click the printer and faxes icon and your Epson printer icon should be there and set as default with a tick next to it; right click on the icon>properties and then at the top of the next window, click on the tab that says ports and a list of ports will be there and the one that should be ticked should be USB001, and not LPT1 as it will be show, press ok and close windows and restart the pc.
