HI there,

There could be a paper jam problem on your unit, check for any stuck object or paper inside the printer. This could be preventing the rollers and gears of the printer not move freely and as a result of a mechanical failure and gets that error blinking with your printer.

Also try to power off the unit for at a minute, this will reset the unit error fault.

Hope this initial info helps.

    check the unit if the ink carriage can move freely on the same direction. as I mentioned you have to clear the paper inside the printer, if you don't see any object or paper stuck inside, this can be a misaligned parts and it will need a professional attention.,

Replaced all three color cartridges (they were low), now the yellow doesn't work at all. Ran deep cleaning several times and tried a different yellow cartridge. No luck!


It insists there is a Cartridge problem on the Printer............ In this Case take out the Paper from the Paper Feed Tray........ Unplug the Power Supply from the Printer.......... Remove both the Cartridges from the Printer.......... Now take a size 10 Envelope fold it so that it should become like a thin long strip........ Now Insert that Envelope on the left side corner of the Printer and move it from right to left and left to right as fast as u can for about 10 times.......... Now Insert the Ordinary Papers onto the Printer and insert both the catridges and Turn on the Printer...... Blinking Stopped...........Issue Resolved.......

Past service life message on Epson C88+ message appears and will not accept new cartridges or try to feed paper at all. Since this printer is just for home printing and it doesn't need to print...


Check if there are any objects blocking the way of the printhead or if there are objects down the paper feed area.
Is your printer placed on a stable, flat surface?
Does it happen to all the papers that you are using? Are the papers in good condition?
Try loading only 10 to 20 sheets of regular paper.
do a printer check to isolate the issue. Turn the printer off. Unplug the usb cable from the printer. Hold down the paper button while you turn the printer on. Keep on holding down the paper button only. Let go of the paper button when the power light starts blinking. If it does the same, there is an issue already on the gear of your printer.
If your unit is out of warranty, log on to support.epson.com. Click on help me find a service center to the left of the page to contact the epson local servicers near your area. If your unit is under warranty, call epson.

Paper feed problem


Hi


This is happening due to paper jam on the gear or roller of the paper feed mechanism. Check for any small bits of paper or sheet stuck. To check lift up the top plastic lid of the Canon printer. Check to see if a jammed sheet of paper is visible inside the printer. Remove the cartridges and check for any small paper bits stuck under the print head. Pull the paper out gently through the bottom end of the printer(if any). Close the top plastic lid. Power On the printer and check.

If it doesn't work then power off the printer, wait 10 seconds and power it back on. try once again to print. If it doesn't work then Open the Canon printer software. Click "Options" and then select the "Clean Print Heads" button.

Yellow light blinking after clearing a paper jam


hi 

If this if a office printer its bound to have stuff fall into it like staples or paperclips. these things fall under the tray and get stuck underneath the paperout flag so firstly take the printer turn it upside down nb remember to remove the toner cartridge then shake it to get anything loose thats stuck in it.if you have done this and the problem persists then you have to strip the front section of the printer and clean out all unecassary things stuck in there. 
The other problem could be that the toner does not connect properly. when you close the front door there is a pin that comes out and connects with the cartridge of the printer. this pin could be jammed or even dirty as toner get stuck on it. this pin earths the drum on the cartridge and if it does not connect then the jam light flashes
I have found alot of things like money, dust and lots of foreign objects stuck under the tray. If you can do it yourself then it is best to get a qualified service technician todo so for you

Paper jam


There could be a tiny piece of paper blocking the paper path or sensor. See if you can find any.

Canon ip90 printer wont grab paper


The most likely culprit is that the rollers that pull the paper are dirty. Use the steps below to clean the rollers.

If paper does not feed correctly, perform the following to clean the paper feed rollers:
1) Confirm that the printer is powered on.
2) Remove any paper from the printer.
3) Press and hold the <Resume/Cancel> button.
4) Release the <Resume/Cancel> button after the Power lamp blinks three times.

Note: The Power lamp will blink and the paper feed roller starts cleaning itself by revolving.
5) When the Power lamp lights in green, repeat Steps 3 and 4 up to two additional times. (Please wait approx. 30 seconds for paper feed roller cleaning to complete.)
6) To confirm whether cleaning has been performed properly, set a blank sheet of plain paper (8 1/2 x 11 Letter size) in the sheet feeder or cassette.
7) Press and hold the <Resume/Cancel> button and release it when the Power lamp blinks three times. (The paper set in the printer is picked up and fed.)
8) Repeat the process as necessary
