Question about HP Inkjet 2600 Printer

1 Answer

HP 2600 BIJ will not initialize

When I plug in the printer it just repeatedly has two rows of astericks ''*'' being typed on the display.

It first types the upper row, then the lower row, then the display clears and then the two rows repeat.

I can only stop this by un-pluging the printer.  The power button has no effect.

Regards

Usually when my printer (HP 2250 Business InkJet) does that, it also has the word, "initializing" printing on the lcd screen. Sometimes it ends with an error message now. This printer is getting old, so I'm beginning to expect that it will fail me sooner or later.
Check the people at HP and see if they can help you. Most of the time, they're very good and helpful, too.

Turn the printer on and verify it goes to ready. Turn off and reseat the card and see if the printer comes to ready.

If yes - upgrade the jetdirect firmware and by weDownload Manager Pro" style="background-color: transparent !important; border: none !important; display: inline-block !important; float: none !important; font-style: normal !important; font-variant: normal !important; font-weight: normal !important; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Verdana, Tahoma, sans-serif !important; height: auto !important; margin: 0px !important; min-height: 0px !important; min-width: 0px !important; padding: 0px !important; vertical-align: baseline !important; width: auto !important; text-decoration: underline !important; background-position: initial initial !important; background-repeat: initial initial !important;">the printerarrow-10x10.png firmware

If no, try the other EIO by weDownload Manager Pro" style="background-color: transparent !important; border: none !important; display: inline-block !important; float: none !important; font-style: normal !important; font-variant: normal !important; font-weight: normal !important; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Verdana, Tahoma, sans-serif !important; height: auto !important; margin: 0px !important; min-height: 0px !important; min-width: 0px !important; padding: 0px !important; vertical-align: baseline !important; width: auto !important; text-decoration: underline !important; background-position: initial initial !important; background-repeat: initial initial !important;">slotarrow-10x10.png.

If that still doesn't work, try a cold reset with the card installed (hold down the green button as you power on, in 5-10 seconds the display will flash cold reset and you can let go and see if the printer comes to ready) Good luck! :)

My 2600 laser printer have 55.1 error message its not working.


DC Controller error.
Turn printer off for 60 seconds. If it's plugged into a surge protector, plug the printer into a wall outlet. Power it on. If it works - good. If not check the firmware version and upgrade it if needed. Other wise replace the DC Controller.

Hello,

With regards to your problem with the Rowe Ami 100 cd jukebox.
Do you have a manual, if not I suggest you buy a printer manual or one on CD and refer to the Programming and Installation section.

In order for the jukebox to know about the cd's that are installed in the jukebox it has to initialize all or the changed cd's that have been replaced within the jukebox.

Put the jukebox into the Service Mode (the service mode should appear on the display)
Type 3 to select the Initialize sub menu
Type 0 and full initialize will appear on the display
Press Popular to start the initialization
Place the jukebox service switch into the normal mode

Initiazation will take around 30 minutes to complete.

Regards

Power-on "initializing" power-off, repeat same cycle(process)


The all-in-one product display always reads "Initializing" This may occur in a low power situation. Follow these steps in order to determine the cause:
  1. Verify that the computer and the all-in-one product have a three-prong power plug.
  2. Unplug the product cable from any power strips or surge suppressors, and plug it directly into a grounded (three-prong) wall outlet.
  3. If the all-in-one has an ADF with an external cable plugging into the back of the product:
    1. Turn off the unit.
    2. Unplug the power cable from the wall outlet.
    3. Unplug the ADF cable from the back of the product.
    4. Plug the ADF cable to the back of the product.
    5. Plug in the power cable, and turn on the power.
      • If no change, the problem is not the ADF.
      • If the problem clears, turn off the all-in-one, unplug the power cable, and plug in the ADF.
      • If the error returns, the ADF is defective. Contact HP Customer Care to get the ADF replaced.
  4. Unplug the USB or parallel communication cable from the back of the all-in-one and try to power up the all-in-one. The computer may be grounding out through the communications cable. If this corrects the issue, check the grounding of the computer and outlet. If the above steps did not resolve your issue, contact HP for additional issue verification or the servicing of your product.
