Re: my copier flashes H then 4

Try this, it should reset your machine.
Performing a Fault Reset 14 will reset your WorkCentre and will help to clear error codes.

  1. Find the pink Clear button on the Control Panel of the WorkCentre.
  2. Find the button below the word Auto.
  3. Press these buttons in the following sequence: [Clear], [Auto], [Clear], [Auto] NOTE: All of the lights on the Control Panel should go out and the LED Display should go blank. If the lights do not go out, then repeat step 3 until they do. It may be necessary to increase or decrease the pace of the [Clear], [Auto], [Clear], [Auto] sequence.
  4. Press the [10's] key one time and the [1's] key four times to enter '14' in the LED Display, as if you were to make 14 copies.
  5. Press the green [Start] button.
  6. Press the pink [Clear] button two times.
  7. The WorkCentre should now warm up and come to ready.
  8. If the above steps do not clear the error code, repeat steps 3 to 6 a second time

Cartridge Error on printer

If your machine is displaying the message "cartridge error" then it is a problem with the cartridge. if you recently purchased them, you shouldn't have a problem returning them, especially if they are generic.

I've seen it often on Xerox's and HP's because they have chips on their cartridges that the machine has to read in order for it to work. sometimes the manufactured cartridges don't get a proper flash of those chips.

A friend gave me her HP psc 2210 AIO. She did not have the owner's manual. I have it hooked up. It turns on, but won't print. I need the operating instructions to get it going. I have a newsletter...

Hi Peggy,

Have you already installed the printer driver to your computer? This is one of the first things you should do when installing the printer aside from hooking it up to your PC. If you don't have the driver don't worry because you may download it by clicking on this link. Then follow the steps below:

1. Select your operating system (ex. Windows XP) then hit on Next.

2. Afterwards select Driver Product Installation Software.

3. Then hit on Download.

4. Once driver is downloaded, install it .

5. Lastly, restart your computer.

For your instruction manual download it from here.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Very old sharp z55 copier won't copy

It is most like a fuser error code. Do you see the heating lamp turn "On", If yes, it could be the thirmister. If dose not turn "On" it could be the thermal fuse or the fuser heating lamp.. The code will not reset till the problem is repaired.

Fuser is not heating up. Normally a broken bulb.

Unless you can get hold of spares, call the engineer.
