    Everything is on track. I tightened the belt because it was skipping. the copier tries to cycle, the scanner moves slightly then strains. It then stops and flashes L1. In order to try it again, you have to turn power off then back on. I have 2 of these copiers with the same problem.

L1 is a code that occurs when the mirror/lens assembly has a problem. Most times the problem can be found when the glass is removed and while unplugged, checking that the lens is on track under that black tin cover. This generally happens when the copier is moved and the scanner jumps track, a ratt a tatt tatt noise is usually the clue heard prior to the L1 code.

Orange ink light blinks. printer will not print.

turn on/off, unplug, plug in, should reset configs.

go to applications folder for your computer, dbl click printer icon for make of printer. check settings. print 'test document and clean cartridge heads', this should ensure proper printing formats.

lastly, go to web site of printer model and check site for trouble shooting if this does not work above. HP has an awesome trouble shooting site
hope this helps and good luck

There is a transparent plastic knob underneath the scanner unit that holds it in place while in its box. After installing you must turn clockwise this plastic to release the scanner mechanism. otherwise a L1 Error will appear on screen.

L 1 blinking

L1-00 is a mirror base feed trouble. Make sure the scanner mirrors move freely. Check for a scanner lock usually underneath the scanner frame to make sure the mirrors aren't "locked". otherwise check the cables and belts in the optics section but do NOT didassemble them without experience doing so. Lubricate scanner rails. Usually caused by accidental scanner lock engagement.

Your driver is either not correct or corrupted so first uninstall and then reinstall your printer driver. Your problem will be fixed up.
