Re: check print cartridge light

Hate to admit it 'cause like most I'd rather rant and rave, HA!, but cleaning both printer and cartridge contacts as directed fixed the problem. Thanks, -DBunnies

I put in new ink cartridges and now there is an E and 2 red blinking lights

Which lights are blinking red? What is the rate of the flashes? I'll assume that one of the blinking lights is the power light (just means error).

If the either of the ink cartridge lights is blinking rapidly, the cartridge may not be seated correctly. Try reseating the cartridges and then press OK to clear the error. If it is a less rapid flash it could be that the print head isn't reading the cartridge ink level correctly. Please note: refilled or non-Epson cartridges may not be read correctly due to information stored in a chip on the cartridge or in the printer.

In this case the problem may be in the print head and Epson doesn't recommend cleaning this yourself. You can replace it. (On other inkjets, pop out the cartridges, remove the print head and wipe with soft, lint-free cloths or q-tips dampened with bottled or distilled water (wring out excess water). On each section, you wipe away from the nozzles. Then wipe off the inside of the print head carriage (contacts) as well. Dry everything with a dry cloth and reassemble the printer.)

If the Check paper light is blinking check for a paper jam or the printer looking for a different paper size.

I hope this helps.

I was printing several pages & it just stopped working. the ink button & on button flash. Changed the ink cartridges but still get the same blinking with no printing. Turned both the computer...

Press the Ink Cartridge Replacement button and check the flash pattern of the control panel lights:
ERROR and POWER lights flash at the same speed = replace black cartridge
ERROR light flashes twice as fast as the POWER light = replace color cartridge

My printer stoped printing

Maybe your printer are out of ink or have an error just like LED (Light Emiting Diode) blinking on the resset button. If that was the error like blinking of the resset button try to press the resset button if they could not resolved the problem and it is still blinking. You need to turned off your printer and check the ink on the cartridge or check the ink lever of you printer. Then turned it On again and try to print if you have check and change the cartridge for a new ink.

..."Open the ink supply andgently move the ink cartridges to the left. Then reach in to the rightside and you'll find a small (1/2 x 1 inch) sponge. Push it down andoff/on the machine. try it now. or ...go to where I found out more than I should know about Canon's and where I got my quote... good luck.

My printer will not accept a new black cartridge.

ITS NOT THE BLACK CARTRIDGE!!! Try changing the colour cartridge and see what happens. When a 9600 checks ink levels it does the black ink first, then the colour, if the colour is low it goes back and checks the black again but will constantly give an error message for the black cartridge. Sounds bizarre but try just the black cartridge in with no colour. print a test page in black only, if that does not print then it is a fault. Also make sure the driver is updated!!!

Canon pixma ip3000 won't print

Check usb cable if they are installed firmly and correctly. Check proper voltage input though designed as Autovolt system.
Try plugging the usb cable on another free usb port or you may try another computer to check if your printer works.
See if there are blinking lights and error codes. You can google for its error codes.
Check flex cable continuity, maybe some rodents have eaten it.
Remove ink cartridge, turn the power off and clean cartridge contacts including the holder contacts, turn it on and return cartridges. You may try borrowing a working ink cartridge of the same type from a friend.

All lights are blinking, printer doesn't work. What does this mean?

This problem occurs for two reasons: the front panel cover was not installed or the ink cartridge access door was not closed before plugging in the all-in-one.
The front panel overlay must be correctly installed before the power cord is plugged in. Follow the steps below to correct the problem:
Disconnect the power cord.
Lift the scanner4.gif lid and carefully line up and install the front panel overlay.
Plug the power cord in.

let me know if this solves your problem wendy.

Blinking Light

uaually the LED blinnks when there is no ink or when it runs low on ink. But since the LED is kept there to indicate any error happens to the printer.... 1. So I suggest that you should take out the printer cartridges and check all of them....shake well before you put it back. Now open Control panel - printers and fexes - right click HP 5550 - Properties There should an option to see the ink levels. If you can see the ink means that printer can detect the cartridges. Now the printer LED should be turned off. If the above doesn't work, try this; Check the printer que .. if there are print jobs pending, the LED will blink. Delete the print jobs, and restart the machine. This should solve your problem.
