Error light and no printing

My error light has always been flashing, but prints normally. Today it seems that the printer will not print at all.when i tried to troubleshoot a spooler message came up but i am unable to understand this. I have tried from both computer and laptop to print but still no joy. The printer seems to be trying to print but then nothing happens. Inks and paper checked and ok. usb checked and ok, no paper jams.....

What does the status monitor message say? The red light is the most general error. It's bit like taking a 747 back to Boeing and saying there is something wrong with it.

If you do not have the status monitor installed, download it from Konica Minolta and run it. Once the status monitor is running it will read the error from the printer.

Orange light flashing five times

With the printer on...

Open the lid
Remove the ink cartridges
Lift the print head lock lever on the left
Remove the print head
Gently clean out any ink
Gently clean the copper contacts on the back
Gently clean the print head nozzle(s) on the bottom
Make sure it's dry
Re-install the print head
Put the lock lever back in the down position
Reinstall your ink
Close the lid
Try printing again
The printer may detect that you removed/inserted ink so it may go through a print head cleaning of it's own that you need to wait to finish
If needed, power cycle the printer and then try printing again
You may need to replace the print head

My is not working & shows an error code B200.


Try counting the number of orange flashes.
* two flashes means you’re out of paper or the paper is not feeding correctly.
* three flashes means there is a paper Jam or the output tray is closed.
* four flashes means the ink tank is empty
* five flashes means the print head is not installed correctly or not installed or is defective (before buying a new print head always try the cleaning instructions at the end of this post first.)
* six flashes means the inner cover is open or not closed properly.
* seven flashes means you counted wrong.....
* eight flashes means the waste ink absorber is almost full or full.
* nine flashes mean that a digital camera or video that is connected is not compatible with the printer. If a specific amount of time lapses without getting a response from the digital camera or video camcorder this will happen.
* ten flashes means it can not print to both sides of the page
* eleven flashes means the automatic print head alignment failed. (this can be caused by low ink levels, ink tanks not being installed correctly, the print heads being clogged. It can also be caused by the paper output slot being exposed to a strong light source (Press the resume /cancel button and move the printer to a darker location and try to align the print head again.
* check to make sure the lock lever is correctly positioned (down)
If the above does not work, align the print head manually by opening the printer properties dialog box and clicking the maintenance tab and then select the print heal alignment button on the left side, second row down.

Flashing yellow light. paper does not load.

It's trying to say that the page you are trying to print is too complex.If you press the button to cintinue it may print out part of the page. Check the printer driver for print resolution settings. Change it to 300dpi and try again. Or, you could always add some extra memory to the printer. If you decide to add extra memeory, don't forget to tell the print driver it has more memory

Dear Bill,
Flashing 5 times in orange indicates that print head error occurs so it cannot be detected properly by the printer. To make it sure, install a good print head in the printer. Is the problem fixed?. If the problem still persist, carriage part may be faulty. Overall, the print head is the most faulty part in this case. So, you need to replace the print head with new one.

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.
