Re: not printing

I just had a similar problem with my C900. Basically the tray never lifted, and I was worried that the "tray lifting assembly" was faulty. But then I saw a fix for the Minolta MagiColor 2300 (basically the same machine?) which involved pushing down the tray to the bottom. This will supposedly trigger some reset of a solenoid connected to the paper lifting mechanism. I did this trick with my machine running - and it worked!

Now my C900 is picking up paper from the tray. I have seen similar solutions on the net, that you should fill the tray with as much paper you can, to get similar results. I think this (partly at least) is the same solution - filling the tray with paper will undoubtedly push the tray down. ;)

We have the E260d. What does it mean when the light bulb flashes. We are unable to print. What can we do?

You can unplug the printer from the wall, then leave it off for about 30 seconds then plug it back in. That should reset the printer, if not read what the message says on the screen, or you may have to navigate through the settings to see the error message.

Canon pixma 3000 won't print red

If you have lots of flashing error lights or electrical problems then it is likely to be electrical.

However, if like most... and your printer has just been left unused for some time? You probably have an ink clog on the magenta *red.

But provided it worked OK before a period of non-use? Then you just need to use a PRINT HEAD CLEANING KIT to unclog the tiny jets.
Magic Inkjet Flush usually works a treat on those!

Magic is ideal for unclogging the tiny jets on any Canon, Epson HP andremoving those horrible white lines which usually appear in prints whendried ink clogs several jets...

So if yours appears to be a clog? all you should need to do is to usethe Magic Inkjet Flush kit to soak the print head and you should beprinting again like new.

Zebra 2824 red light

Hold the feed button while turning on the printer. After a config label prints, turn the printer off and then on again, and try printing again.

Also, make sure the lid is closed far enough to engage the lid sensor. If the red light comes on again, press down a bit on the lid, hit the feed button and try to print again.

Lexmark c530dn wont print

disconnect this printer from your gigabit switch and try running it by itself. this printer should have its own on board memory. you may have uncompatible memories.

If you're using this printer on a print server then do the following

Turn Printer Off
Disconnect Data Cable
Press & Hold Feed button whilst switching on
Keep Holding Feed Button until test label is complete and light has gone red
Switch Printer off

Reset your Print Server
Plug Data Cable back into printer
Switch Printer on

This should start it printing (unless there are jobs inthe print queue, if there are then they will need to be deleted before printing will commence)
