I have a Star TSP600 Thermal Printer which is displaying a red error light.


Are you sure the paper is correctly routed? It will pass a detector. Mis-aligned paper, or defective/damaged detector will present the error.

Receipt printer paper reduction isn't working


Power the printer on and press the Paper button to see if paper will load.
If the paper doesn't load, make sure the paper isn't curled or creased, isn't loaded above the arrow on the left edge guide, and that the paper isn't jammed in the printer.

Take the paper stack from the tray; fan it before attempting to print.

Make sure the paper stack is leaning against the paper tray and not standing straight up in the tray.

If the Paper Out light is on solid, reload the paper, making sure the paper edge guide is adjusted to fit the paper's width, and then press the Paper button again to see if the paper will now load.

If the Paper Out light is flashing, turn the printer off, reload the paper, turn the printer back on, and try pressing the Paper Feed button again to see if the printer will now successfully load the paper. If the problem persists, power the printer off, remove the printer cable, and make sure all of the packing materials are removed.

If the problem is not resolved, contact Epson's technical support for further assistance.

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 lexmark all in one printer x5470 keeps jamming the paper and it wont print?or the paper will go in partially and print but nothing will happen then it will tell me to reload the paper and press the...


Most probably a mechanism problem. Try to remove all sheets of paper. Take out the cartridges from the printer. Close the cover. Unplug the power supply from the printer. The power supply is the black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached. Check for any obstructions or foreign objects in the feeder. Wait at least 30 seconds before plugging the power supply back in the printer. Once printer is ready, reload the cartridges. Load about 10-15 sheets, don't load too much. Let it print the alignment page. If this doesn't help, then most probably it's a hardware issue. If this is the case, I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support to further investigate the problem.

Quits printing and screen says "need service"


A: Power the printer on and press the Load/Eject button to see if
paper will load. If no paper loads, make sure the paper isn't
curled or creased, isn't too old, isn't loaded above the arrow on
the left edge guide, and that the paper isn't jammed in the printer.
If the Paper Out light is on solid, reload the paper, making sure
the paper edge guide is adjusted to fit the paper's width, and then
press the Load/Eject button again to see if the paper will now load.
If the Paper Out light is flashing, turn the printer off, reload
the paper, turn the printer back on, and try pressing Load/Eject
again to see if the printer will now successfully load the paper.
If the printer still will not load paper, power the printer off,
remove the printer cable, and make sure all of the packing materials
are removed. If the problem persists, the printer may need to be
sent in for service and you should contact the EPSON Connection for
assistance.

Red light on steady


If the ink light is on steady red, that means the black or color ink cartridge is nearly empty. Obtain a replacement black or color ink cartridge. To know which cartridge is out of ink, check the ink levels using EPSON Status Monitor 3 (Windows) or EPSON Status Monitor (Macintosh). If you just replaced the cartridges before you got the error light, that means that the replacement cartridge is not recognized by your printer. Please reseat cartridges. Then turn the printer on and off. The cartridges maybe bad also.
If the paper light is on steady red, try to reload 10-20 sheets of regular paper into your printer. When printing on CD/DVD, CD/DVD tray is not inserted in the printer. Insert the CD/DVD tray in the printer and press the paper button.Could also be that the printer has loaded more than one sheet of paper at a time. Load paper in the sheet feeder, and then press the paper button to resume printing. If the CD/DVD guide is open, close the CD/DVD guide, load paper and then press the paper button.
