Re: wont work at all

May be the ink is low or nothing is left at all.

Just replacing the ink cartridge will solve your problem.

Hello. My Epson Stylus CX 4200 now flashes the letter E and all the lights flash, including "error." How do I get it working again?

here's what you can do:-disconnect the printer from the computer-turn off the printer-inspect for anything foreign inside like jammed paper-turn the power back on-remove the ink cartridge-check the chip connnector at ink tank and at head carriage. If its dirty clean it with soft moist cloth. -check the status monitor. which ink tank not recognized. -press ink light (1-4 times) depends on number ink tank not recognized, press 1 time again, carriage will move co replacement position, unplug and plug again all ink tank, press ink light 1 more.
if that doesn't work, replace ink cartridge ONLY if you have a spare. DO NOT BUY new ink as the printer is bound for repair.

I suggest you set up your printer to a different website if your in power point or excel or anything else or maybe you don't have a full connection from word to your printer if this is on your phone email to your work computer if you have one or a friend and print it off your email.

I have a Cannon i560 printer and the light on printer flashes five times orange then flashes green, what is the problem and how can I fix it.

5 flashes indicates a faulty printhead or possibly a problem with the p/head contacts. Try removing the head which is easier if you take the cartridges out first(no tools required) and re-seat it having checked the contacts for dirt.

If that doesn't work it may be that the waste ink tank is full. Try this ...

Canon S9000, S300, S400, i550, i560, i850, i860, i865, i9100, i9950, PIXMA iP3000 above,
1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal.

Hi ludovicungur,

If your device is blinking fast then it means the problem could be that your are using an incorrect mode of connection for e.g. a USB extension cord , or a USB hub to connect your external HDD.

I would suggests you to remove any external cable or USB hub and then connect the hdd directly to the port on *********** board ,if possible try changing ports and it should work.

Hope this helps ..:)

Paper light is on but not blinking, wont print

Sounds like a communication error somewhere between the printer and your hardware. You might need to update the driver. Go to the manufacture's website and put the model number of your printer in to get the latest driver. There might also be a driver specifically for your Mac there.
