Re: copy problem

I think that u have pending work out there!

look in ur task bar n u'll c the icon - right click on it n u'll c all ur pending work!

u hv 2 cancel or restart ur pending jobs!

HOPE it'll work n blinking will stop!

Originally the black ink would not print. replaced, primed, cleaned. nothing, the same problem, no black ink. Now I can't get the cartridge light to quite blinking. It is not steady orange, but a...

First off, if you touched the metal contacts on the printer or cartridge, you could damage or leave a film on the contact surface. Take it out of the printer, with a qtip dip in rubbing alcohol, squeeze out access, rub surfaces, air dry, and reinsert again. If still no ink, turn the print end up under the very hot water tap and run for 2 minutes. Dry and replace. It may do the trick.

An error occured we cannot print a document which the orange light was blink semoustanousely

Damage canon printers, can be identified from the number of lights blinking in orange. So, you calculate, how many times the orange light is blinking. Example E2, E3, E4, E5, E8, E9, E13, E14, E15, etc.


the error code E13 = The following ink may have run out black/color

Press and hold the Reset button about 10 second. E13 error on canon pixma, occurs twice. E13 for black cartridges, and E13 for the color cartridges

the moving ink frame is probably pointing to a symbol such as replace color ink( three dots on ink cartridge picture). Replace color ink. You are probably printing your black and white documents with colored ink--always select black or greyscale.

HP Deskjet 950C I have a flashing orange light

I think I may have another solution. I remember some time ago going to HP to get an update for my 950c printer. I think I read something that said, "If you do not really need to download this update, don't do it." I downloaded it anyway. I think then I begin to get notices saying when my ink was getting low, usually long before it actually did. I am thinking also, the same software that gave me those readings, also may have read the color cartridge (and possibly also black) may have caused the printer to turn on the blinking resume (orange light). I then deleted the updated software and reinstalled the original software that came with my computer or old application for the printer. I restarted my computer and tried it again. The blinking light did come on at first; then I realized I had not set the printing format to black only. I also disconnected my printer both and module and power for about five minutes. Still not sure since I just did this, but the orange light is not coming on and the printer prints. LOL, I am low on black ink though.

Inserted new light still on

Try re-seating the ink cartridges. A lot of times, the electrical contacts on HP's ink cartridges do not make a solid connection.

Both have to be in the printer,even if one is empty.
