Re: Won't print

The printer might still be in manual feed mode. I just had the same problem and forgot that I had set it up to print on manual feed for a project. Try inserting a page in the feed slot and see if that helps.

Re: Won't print

I have the same printer and the red light for the printer would not go off. Well we took out the paper carraige and took it outside to a air compressor we have and blew it all out. Cleaned everything we could and plugged it back in and printed like new. It had alot of small particles of paper inside it. I am not sure where the problem was but she was dirty. I think I can wait a while longer before buying a different printer

Brother 540cn Printer won't print and displays unable to print 50. The photo capture button also flashes

The error code 50 indicates a paper jam condition. Whether there's actually still paper jammed or not, it's sensors are still indicating a jam. Check again for a bit of paper, or there may be a faulty sensor.

Epson Stylus PHOTO R220 red lights keep flashing

I hope this will help you :)
* Green Power light flashes- The printer is receiving a print job, replacing an ink cartridge, charging ink, or cleaning the print head.
* RED paper light is On- If the CD/DVD try guide is open, close the CD/DVD tray guide, load paper, then press the paper button. Your paper ran out or multiple sheets loaded at the same time . Load paper and press the paper butoon to resume printing.
* RED paper light flashes- Paper is jammed in the printer. Press the paper button to eject the jammed paper. If the light is still flashing , open the cover and remove all paper, including any jammed or torn pieces. Then reload paper and press the paper button to continue printing.
* RED Ink Light Flashes - One or more cartridges are low on ink. Check the message that appears on your screen to determine which cartridge is low, or follow the instructions in " Checking the Ink Supply". Make sure you have a replacement cartridge.
* RED Ink Light is ON- One or more cartridges are out of ink or not installed. If you have just installed a new cartridge, it may be incomaptible with the printer or incorrectly installed. Reinstall it or replace it with the correct cartridge
* RED Ink and RED paper lights flash alternately- The CD/DVD tray guide was left open when you turned on the printer or when printing on paper. Just simply close it/
* Green Power Light is Off; RED paperand RED Ink Lights flashing- Paper may be blocking movement of the print head. Turn off the printer, then open the cover and remove any jammed paper or other foreign objects. Turn the printer back on again. Or it may have an internal error. Turn off the printer, wait a few seconds, then turn it on again.

My printer says it has a paper jam, even though the paper jam has been cleared. It won't print. Any ideas?

Hi, Try pulling out the plug for 1 hour and then try again. Pulling the plug may reset the printer.
Good luck.

Put in new cartridges but won't print calibration page.|Keeps giving paper jam message

You likely have a small piece of paper jammed in somewhere. Get a good light and start exploring. Look for levers and sensors that have been covered, or dislodged.

The red and green lights are flashing continously and it won print

The lights continually flashing indicate a paper jam or the printer being out of ink. Check/clear any paper jam and verify the ink cartidge is set correctly.

Lexmark x2600 printer

Pull the tray out at the bottom of the printer. This is causing the printer to think it has a paper jam. It is simply the paper feed button.

Any other issues email me at

Copier won;t work

the sensors are little plastic peices that hang down along the paper trail its how the printer determines where the paper is. There would be one along the trays.

The red attention indicator light and the toner indicator light are both flashing together

ON your driver check that the paper size is correct and this most commonly occurs when the incorrect paper size is selected. For example if you are printing to A4 and you have letter size installed in the machine then the system will cause an error or jam when there is nothing there.

Also within word or which ever program you are using on the document goto file and then down to page setup once in there check the paper size make sure it's correct for the paper in your machine also check the paper source. Once you have done this check the paper tray guides are correctly against the paper turn on and try printing and hopefully this will work.

Thanks J
