Warning lights blink upon startup, printer freezes


If the lights flash alternately then it is probably your waste ink pads that need cleaning
If the lights flash continuously check your printer for any outstanding documents in the print queue and cancel them then try again

Hp 460 desk top printer will not print and two orange lights are flashing


Hi there,

It would be helpful if you still have the users manual and are able to positively identify the lights.

If the lights that are flashing are the power light and the "resume" light this would indicate you have a paper jam or or the print cartridges are not seated properly.

The resume button is the one that resembles a piece of paper with an arrow pointing down in the middle of it.

Turn off the power, and look to see if there is a piece of paper jammed inside the printer anywhere. Even a small torn piece of paper can cause an error condition.

Remove the print cartridges and turn them around so you can see what resembles a circuit board. Check to make sure the protective cover has been removed from the print cartridges. Once you've done this, install the print cartridges again and turn the power back on to see if the problem has been resolved.


In nearly all cases, flashing lights on a printer indicate a problem with the hardware itself which has nothing to do with the printer driver.

The printer prints a test page everytime i turn the printer on


I had the same problem and it was driving me crazy until I did this. Please follow exactly and IN ORDER.

1. Turn off the printer and wait 10 seconds. Turn it on again

2. Let the printer print the test page.

3. After the test page is printed, disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer to your computer. DO NOT turn off the printer while disconnecting the USB cable.

4. Place the test page on the scanner glass and press the SCAN button on the printer. The ON light will flash as the page is being scanned.

5. Remove the test page when the ON light is steady.

6. Finally, turn off the printer and wait another 10 seconds. Then turn it on again. No more printing test pages!

(You may now reconnect the printer to your computer via the USB cable.)

Warning light flashes every 3-4 prints


hi
the reason why its doing that is your fuser needs to be refurbed. the teflon film of the fuser in your printer heats up alot and under the film is a silicon heat resistant compound that turns powdery or drieds out after a while. if the film is ok then your fuser only needs to be cleaned and regreased with new compound and then your printer is as good as new again

Won't print - just flashes it's lights at me!


I tried what phrek said (" Pressing the flashing buttons simultaneously, evokes the printer to spit out an internal diagnostic page ..."), but after the diagnostic page printed out the printer worked fine again.

Thanks for the help, and hopefully things work out for the rest of you as well.

Epson Pro 7600 Service required error


You need to be able to clear the counters in the printer that tell the printer to stop working.
In order to do that you must

1. Turn printer off
2. you must hold down the "Paper Source, Paper Feed, Select Feed, Cut/Eject" buttons all at the sime time while you turn the printer back on.
3. From there navigate through the menues to clear the counter that pertains to you or all.
(Error 00000101 is pertains to the print head motor)

Word of warning -
Those counters can be a pain as they cause the printer to stop working however you do need to get your printer serviced by a tech as soon as you can because the error is a warning, reset the counters lets you finsih a job, but if it goes unserviced too long it will actually break down all togther.

So even after you rest the counters you absolutly must get your printer serviced soon.
