I am assuming this is for a printer. Try unplugging everything, then plug it all back in, put paper in tray and turn printer back on.

Error p1500


The printers first error code show all lights flashing:
Flashing Ready'Data
Flashing Toner Low
Flashing Load'Remove Paper
Flashing Paper Jam
Flashing Error
Flashing Press Continue
By pressing continue twice to get to second error codes the lights show:
Flashing Ready'Data
Off Toner Low
Flashing Load'Remove Paper
Flashing Paper Jam
Flashing Error
Flashing Press Continue
Pressing continue twice more shows:
Off Ready'Data
Flashing Toner Low
Off Load'Remove Paper
Off Paper Jam
Off Error
Off Press Continue
Pressing continue twice more brings back to all lights flashing
The computers ( I have tired more than one with diff USB and A parallel cables) do not see the printer as being attached. My toner is half full. I checked the internal power board in base of printer and the fuse is good. The error should not have anything to do with being connected to a computer or not because when it was working and not connect to a computer it would not blink all the indicator lights (If I remember correctly, just the Press Continue light would be lite).
Information I have found so far:
  1. http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/p1500/en/index.htm#online_documentation
o Under PDF Documents Owner's Manual(English) (.pdf) (1.33 MB) shows very little about the indicator lights.
o Under HTML Documents User's Guide shows more information about the indicator lights but mentions nothing about the secondary error codes.
  1. The Lexmark E321/E323/E220 are very close cousins to the P1500 and on Lexmark's website the manuals have more info on secondary codes but nothing that matches my error.
Information I am guessing could be the problem:
  1. The fuser has gone out (need to know how to check) Why else would they sell the fuser if it didn't go out regularly Part Number: 56P1053
  2. Clutch Assembly I'm not sure of the accuracy of the info on this page.

The paper light is flashing. The tray has paper, there is no paper jam. I check everything, put tray back in, press go and after a few seconds, there is a click noise and it starts flashing. What do I do?


The light flashing may mean more things, not just a paper jam. Could mean any of the following:
- Front cover is open: Close the front cover of the printer.
- Back cover is open: Close the back cover of the printer.
- Paper jam: Clear the paper jam. To see paper jams and how to clear them, click here. If the printer does not start printing, press the Go button.
- No paper fed manual feed slot: Put the paper back in the manual feed slot.
- Memory full: The printer memory is full and the printer cannot print full pages of a document. To solve this problem, click here.
- Print overrun: A print overrun occurred and the printer cannot print full pages of a document. To solve this problem, go here.
- Drum Error: The corona wire needs to be cleaned. To see how to clean the corona wire, click here.

When I try to print the triangle with an exclamation point flashes and doesn't print


This is the 'Attention' light. It indicates that the cartridge door is open, or that other errors exist.

Not great info, but you need to methodically eliminate the possible causes of the error....

1. Try putting some paper into the Manual feed tray / slot. It may be waiting for you to feed paper manually. Check your printer driver settings....

2. Press the 'Go' button. It will make it print from Tray2

3. Check your Printer driver settings, and 'Page set up' in the application

4. Switch the device off, and unplug the data cable.

5.Switch it back on.

6. Print a configuration page from the printer control panel by pressing the Go button (the green one) until the green Ready and Error light start blinking.

7. If it prints these pages successfully, then the problem may be elsewhere (PC software, application, corrupt data, etc) but check the settings on the Configuration page as well.
Make sure they match your system, paper size and type, feeding options etc....

The light is blinking on my maching (i believe it's the ink--or lack of it). i'd like to find out if that is so, but i can't seem to find the route to that on my machine, which is a mac. How do i get that...


I can't tell you how you could find out on you Mac as I've never used one with my C86 but I can tell you that you can translate the light flashing into a more meaningful "message" by observing the patterns.

  • Paper & Ink lights flashing alternately (power light off) = service required (ie: waste pads need replacing)
    .
  • Ink light flashing = ink cartridge is empty or printhead is in the exchange position. Try pressing the ink button once (don't hold it down) and see if it moves to the exchange position or moves back to park.
    .
  • paper light flashing = paper jam or no paper in feed.. Remove a jam or feed it with paper as required then press the paper button
    .
  • Power light flashing = printer is busy... If it's doing nothing trying pulling the power lead out of the back of the printer, wait 5 seconds and then plug it back in, turn it back on. This should clear any error.
    .
  • Both ink and paper lights flashing (together) = General error.. This could be anything from a serious paper jam, loose wire in the printer, parking station disconnect or similar..

Hopefully that will give you something to go on and get you working again... As far as software information goes, someone else may be able to help but chances are Epson's own support site will have some software called Status monitor or similar for your operating system which may help.

Cheers

Martin

I get a series of blinking orange lights and a green pause.


Hi Mike, the paper feed switch doesn't feed paper... it switches the paper source from the top feeder to the bottom tray. Do you have paper in both? How many times does the orange light flash in between the greens? That tells the error.

Phaser 8400 won't print.


pull out the paper drawer and look on the ceiling of the compartment. you will see a little orange rubber roller that should be clicked inplace. it feeds the paper up into the roller. also, the drawer itself contains two sensors. if you go to the xerox page you can download the pdf that lists all the parts and the errors and how to disassemble the whole thing. i have the same printer and got a print head error and a paper jam that required complete disassembly. feel free to email me for additional help.

Epsom TM-U220 Error Codes


From the manual its probably one of this item.
-printer temp is too high

-cover is not properly closed
-print head is not in the correct position
-paper cutter is not in the correct position
-paper jam


Try turning off the printer, remove the power cable, turn it on again for 5 seconds to reset it. Connect back power cable, press the feed button and turn it back on. The printer should do a self test, turn it off and on again after the self test. It should make the red light go away.

Brother HL 2070N red paper light blinks but won't print.


Just fixed my printer issue, had the same problem, Would load 1 sheet, then jam, sometimes it won't pull the paper out of the tray, sometimes it would pull the paper to the toner area, but never into the toner, opening and slamming the paper tray while it attempted to load would usually work, but who wants to slam the tray 50 times? I was using Walgreens generic paper, 20lb, took some higher-quality 24lb HP paper and VOILA! It works every time! EVERYONE WHO IS HAVING THIS PROBLEM, CHECK THAT YOU ARE USING 24LB PAPER!!! Brother says 20-24 is acceptible, but sneaking one sheet of 20lb paper about 15 sheets down in a 20 sheet print job and it will stop at it every time, You can feel the difference, less like toilet paper and more like real paper.

24 LB PAPER! USE IT NOW AND THANK ME LATER!
