Re: canon i250 printer

I need more details.  Does it act like it's printing and the paper comes out blank?  Does the paper come out at all?  Or does do nothing?

Charging light flashes quickly between green and yellow. Normal?

No. Most UPS's should have a Solid Green Led on if the unit is running good. This might be indication that UPS has batteries that are not charging completely which mean they are depleting. How old is this UPS and the batteries? Have you changed the batteries yet? Need more info. Do you still have the manual. Always keep UPS manual handy. I have a ton of manuals but not for these little UPS. Mine are for 10kVA to 1000kVA 480v to 208v. Anyways hope I helped.

Power light flashing green to red

Assuming the "squiggle line" is the Utility LED the unit has proper power. The light is steady green and not flashing, correct?

Have you reset the unit?

Try removing all but one attached device to verify it's not an overload condition.

A photo of the control panel would help.

Overload Red button is on even after pressing reset button @ back

Try unplugging some equipment from the UPS. The total load should be less than 865 W. Printers and scanners often are culprits.Some gaming desktop computers can have a power supply that will be too much for this UPS. (I've found that even having the printer on the surge only part of the UPS can be a problem. I have the printer on a separate surge protector.)

Since the overload is new, did you add any equipment to the UPS recently or upgrade components?

If you reduce the load, and the problem continues, the UPS may have a fault in the circuitry. If it is under warranty, contact APC.

I hope this helps.

(I have replaced APC units after 3+ years when they can't properly recharge the battery - with a new battery. The symptoms are 1) getting a overload when a small load is on the UPS. Small load - desk lamp, 13" TV or 2) not keeping the item on when the power goes off.)

My APC back-ups es500 is keep on flashing in orange and green having the beep sound, whe it is on. It has been used for nearly 3 years. What would be the problem...?


Probably the battery is drained. You should charge it first. And if the problem still persist, it could be that the UPS battery needs replacement.

Smart UPS 1500 - battery level green lights blink on and off

You need to run recalibration on the unit.  The supplied PowerChute software & cable will allow you to do this if you hook the UPS up to a PC (I know it works with the serial cable, not sure about USB).  If you only have a MAC then I cannot offer a solution other than to buy the standalone PowerView device from APC.  It will cost a bit more than a battery, but may save you from buying needless batteries in the future.  I finally broke down an bought one, but note that I was still having the problem after the 1st recalibration.  By trial and error (and maybe a vague memory) I put my MAC in sleep mode, that dropped the load to stop the lights from flashing.  Then I recalibrated with a 22% load and now it finally seems better (lights no longer flashing).  This was with a Smart-UPS 1000.
Let me know if that helps.

try this one i think it can help your problem.

at Start menu you can see printers and faxes icon or you can also see in setting drop down menu, and click it.

if theres a list of many printers, see the one you're using, and double click it. and cancel all pending document to be print.

Tip: please don't click the printer icon several times it will only multiple the printing process.

hope this can help

God Bless.

Cannon S330 printer

You guess seems to be right. The user manual says that 7 orange flashes is "Defective print head Contact a Canon service representative". So, the is not much more we will be able to suggest you on, unless there is a Canon technical rep who is also an Expert here!

Sometimes, all is not lost, they may have a special (undocumented) procedure they will ask you to try. Then, if it turns out that your printer is really dead, you may still be able to resell the ink in the classified ads or on eBay. Good luck!
