A chip where?
On the Main Board or some other board?
I need to know which board to order, and the Service Manual doesn't mention just a solid red Status led with no other led lit.

Printer is not working, I had a power outage, and since then it says error and the red light will not turn off? I unplugged it from the main switch, this happened one other time and it just started working...


Hi, it could be that the power outage has damage the board of the printer, why don't you get a technician to help you troubleshoot with another board to see if it will work, if doesn't am afraid you have to get another printer has said by Epson.

I wish you best of luck.

Printer doesn't work at all. Status light is red.


A voltage surge often accompanies a power cut and even when surge protection is used sensitive electronics can be damaged. Often the damage is such that the item doesn't fail immediately, or doesn't completely fail.

That happened to a friend a couple of years ago and he was fortunate enough to suffer immediate failure so the power company paid to replace his motherboard and hard drive.

You should have your printer checked by an engineer.

Power Outage & Now Wii Won't Power Up...


When this same thing happened to me, I unplugged the Wii power supply from the wall (not just from the back of the Wii) and let it sit unplugged for about 10 minutes. When I plugged it back in, everything was fine.

No power


I have two of these where I work and have seen this problem occur after power outages. I've been able to resolve it by unplugging the power and usb cable and letting it sit for 10-15 minutes . Plug everything back up and it works again (until the next power outage)

New HL-5240 printer red status light upon powering up


My HL-5240 did the same thing, Here is what I found:

Look at the back of the printer. Pull down the back cover. Look to the right and the left of the exposed internals of the printer and there should be another handle/knob you can pull down. Pull these both down simultaneously and check to make sure there isn't a piece of paper in there! This was a shock to me! My office printer was held up for days until I found this hidden door in the back! I felt like an idiot that it was from a stupid paper jam!

SAMSUNG ML-2510 LASER MONO PRINTER


no, I have paper....the red-light on the top keeps blinking.....

I have used akums-razor to determine the answer.....

sol: push and hold down the orange button for 3-4 secs and wait for a print-out. It will give you the staus of the toner cartdg. MINE REPORTS A LOWWWW LEVEL. ( the orig. cartridge gives the user only about 1000 sheets and mine is around 783. This is why I think the light came on to tell me to jump in my Lexus, get down to Best Buy, and get another ( more capacity) new cartridge....
cool, huh?:>))))

Flashing lights


jhoglen, If you haven't already done so turn the printer off, then back on then let sit with power on for 10 min. If nothing changes you'll have to take it in for repair. Good luck and please don't forget to rate this post.

You probably need to replace the the ignitor. Even though it glows red does not mean that it is working propery. If it does not draw at least 3.5 amps the gas valve will not open. This can be check with a amp meter.
