    The orange button is flashing and when I try and print an error box pops up

  • Angela 1 Jan 11, 2008

    The alarm light is flashing and i can't seem to find my user guide. There is no paper jammed and the ink cartridges are full. On the display panel it appears to be japanese writing. I have took no action as i don't have a user guide. Do you know if there is a reset button? What sort of action do you suggest? how much would it cost to get this sorted. Please help. Many Thanks Ange

Alarm light wont stop flashing

How old is your printer? Maybe a part in your printer has reached its service life and has to be replaced. Please indicate error messages if there are any.

Head stops in the middle and light flashes

That's the behavior of a printer that is missing its ink cartridge. It is possible there's a fault with your ink cartridge. Try replacing it and see if it works.
