I had this problem. I thought it was out of black ink because it was spitting out blank pages. I replaced that cartridge and then the flashing, yellow water drop started and it wouldn't print. I replaced the color cartridge and that fixed the problem.

That indicator just means there is some problem. It's impossible to tell which exact problem it is without the help of an HP representative.

My Star TSP600 Thermal Printer is displaying a flashing Error light. Power light on, new roll of paper loaded correctly, self-test was ineffective - nothing printed. What's my next step?

i know you stated you put the paper in correctlyin the printer but if the thermal reactive side of the paper is not facing the print head the thermal paper won't print on the wrong side of the paper. it will load into the printer and seem ok but the heat on the wrong side of the paper will not react and show any writing. Can you try turning the paper over in the printer feed holder so the other side of the paper faces the print head and give it another test .

Power but not printing

Hi Linda,
Did you check if the printer is able to scan or does it makes photocopy? if the printer doesn't respond to any input follow below steps.
  • Power Drain:
  1. Turn the printer OFF using the power button.
  2. Disconnect the power and USB cable from the back side of the printer.
  3. Press and hold the Power button for 30 seconds and release the button.
  4. Connect the power cable and try printing.
  5. If the above steps didn't work try below.
  • Partial Reset: Unplug the printer power cable while its ON, press and hold # and 3 button and connect the Power cord while holding.Wait untill the ON light flashes, then release the button. If you still see the issue try next level of reset.
  • Semi Full Reset:- Remove the ink cartridges; Unplug the printer power cable while its ON, press and hold # and 6 button and connect the Power cord while holding.Wait untill the ON light flashes, then release the button.

My zebra prints blanks. Tried resetting the mode. Turned it off. Held the feed button, turned it on, and when it flashed red I let off. It stays green and doesn't flash again. What am I doing wrong?

My work has the same label printer and when installed had the same problem. be sure that your settings are correct. underr the start buttton on the task bar click on "printer and faxes" find the "zebra 2844 " and right click on the bottom of this sub menu click on "properties" there should be two rows of tabs to choose from click on "printer settings" then select "printer default" on all available ie: fonts, spoolong format, line sub. click "apply" then "ok".

The printer will not work. The green bottom

The Print Cartridge Status light flashes when one or both of the print cartridges is improperly installed or malfunctioning.

1. Open the printer's top cover.
2. Remove and re insert both the black and colour print cartridges and try printing again.

If the problem persists then you need to replace either the black or the colour print cartridge.

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.

"Wrong Cartridge"

There really aren?t but three options per Canon: -Reseating the print head -Replacing the print head -Press the ON/OFF switch to reset the device. Cleaning the pins as mentioned and trying new genuine Canon cartridges) are good to try as well; however, the next thing to check is if this printer is still covered by the warranty. If it?s less than one year old or if you?re not sure call Canon and see what they will do, it doesn?t cost anything except time. Everyone wants to save money on labor but the relatively small amount of money you?ll save you could easily loose by experimenting. I?m hoping you don?t flame me for this (I post to help, not make money) but a new print head is going to cost around $50 and might not even fix your problem. Unless you have access to a printer you can use for parts my suggestion is to not invest any money on buying parts unless you are absolutely sure the part will fix the problem. Instead I would suggest you have a local authorized shop take a look at it. Most will change a modest evaluation fee ($30-$40 that typically is applied to the repair cost) and they can tell you what it will cost to fix. Add to that the typical 90 day warranty as well.

Wrong cartridge error message.

You need to replace the printhead (QY6-0064-000). It costs me around $50 in the U.S. But now, it works just fine. indogirl
