Flashing power button on X1270

I have seen similar problem and tried out all the solutions.

The power button on my printer is flashing in a pattern 1 flash, 2 flashes, and it will not respond when I send things to print anymore. It used to send me a message to take out and put back in the ink cartridges but now I don't have any response at all.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the driver a couple of times but it does not seem to make a difference.

It was not a paper jam or cartridge change which caused this unusual behaviour, instead it happened spontaneously. I was prinitng something one day and then half way through it stopped and broke.

Please please help me!

Hi im having some problems my aunt just gave me her lexmark 1250 and the paper keeps jamming i think i have that fixed but now i go to print a test page to see if its working and all i get is a flashing...


The flashing power light could be to a faulty cartridge or the cartridge carrier has stalled. Follow the steps below to fix the problem:
  1. Open the printer cover.
  2. Ensure there is no jammed paper in the cartridge area and the cartridge carrier is free from any obstructions (any foreign objects or debris)
  3. Remove both cartridges from the printer.
  4. Close the printer cover.
  5. Unplug and replug the printer into the power source to reset it.
  6. When the printer turns on, re-insert 1 cartridge first. Close the printer cover.
  7. Check the light pattern on the power. If not blinking, open the printer cover and re-insert the other cartridge.
  8. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the power light to blink.
Hope this information has been helpful.

When I switch on my 1270 the motor runs for some time and then the green light on the power button flashes. If I open the printer the cartridges do not move to the center but they move when I switch off.


I am not sure what the light pattern indicates though but try to reset your printer. Unplug the power adapter(small black box where the power cord is attached) from the back of your printer.

Wait at least 10 seconds before plugging the power adapter back in the printer. Also, check and make there are no paper jams.

How to fix blinking lights Printer lights blink in certain patterns to tell you about specific problems. Read this document until you see the pattern that your lights are making. The solution is below each pattern. NOTE: There may be more than one reason why the printer lights are blinking, so you may see several solutions.

The printer will not turn on.

Solutions

1. Check the power cord or power module connections at both the printer and the power source (power outlet, power strip or surge protector).

2. Try disconnecting and reconnecting the power cord or power module to the printer.

3. Try reconnecting the power cord or power module to the power source or try a different power source.

4. Verify that the printer is connected to a power outlet that works.

5. Make sure there are no additional switches turned off, such as those on a power strip or surge protector.

6. Check the power breaker to make sure the power source is working.

If these solutions did not fix the problem, have the printer serviced. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bud09170&tmp_task=solveCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=59129

Hi, My Canon Multipass F50 is flashing the "Wrong Cartridge" error message. I have read a proposed solution to get into the test mode, clear the eeprom and input (0) for the ink code. It doesn't have any...


One fellow on fixyourownprinter.com fixed his this way:

85.gif Re: MultiPass F50 by Anonymous (11/4/05 5:35 AM) reply + / - I tried this and it worked great. My F50 kept showing "wrong cartrige." I don't take credit for this I foud it on another sight
for another model of canon printers, but it worked on my used F50.
Here it is:



1: Remove Cartridge
2: Unplug the AC Power Cord
3: Hold down the RESUME button
4: Release RESUME after plugging in the AC Power cord.
5: Press the RESUME once within 5 seconds and release the RESUME .
6: Press and HOLD RESUME for two seconds or more and release it.
7: Press and HOLD RESUME for two seconds or more and release it.
8: Unplug AC Power Cord to set data.

I hope this info helps.

Connected r1800 to mac, print browser page, blinking power light, no printing


Run a nozzle check to see if all inks are printing out. Turn printer off, then hold down the paper button ( top ), while holding it down, press and hold the power button. When you see the power light flashing green, release both buttons. It should print a nozzle check pattern. You should see 7 columns of different colored lines and one checkered board pattern. There should be no gaps and breaks on the lines. If pattern is no good, you need to do head cleaning.Press the ink button for 3 seconds. Power light will flash and print head will move. This will take one to two minutes. After it is complete ( power light turns solid green ) you need to do a nozzle check pattern to verify if there is improvement or If head cleaning needs to be repeated.

Power light keeps flashing


Sound like residue from the protective tape that was on the cartridge. Take the cartridge out and clean the copper contacts with a Q-Tip dipped in alcohol. VERY lite-ly... I have seen a lite glaze from the tape stopping proper contact if the were on the store shelf very long....
Please rate this solution if it helps.... Thank You...

Lexmark x1270 printer power button blinking won't print


I had the same issue with my Lexmark X1290, I solved it by opening up the device, so the ink cartridges should pop, they didn't so I pressed the power button to switch it off, and then switched it back on (with the device open!) and all the paper flowed out, the flashing stopped and it could print again. Good Luck!

Can`t get my Lexmark X1270 to download on my pc.


When the power button is flashing, try unplugging and replugging the printer. If it still keeps flashing try removing and reinstalling the cartridges. Make sure nothing is obstructing movement of the cartridges inside the printer.

If nothing helps you may need to buy a new printer. Be sure to check first if Windows 98 is supported, because lots of new printers don't support old versions of Windows.
