Re: Flashing 4-H error message

Try this reset procedure. Most likely this will work.

Performing a Fault Reset 14 will reset your WorkCentre and will help to clear error codes.

  1. Find the pink Clear button on the Control Panel of the WorkCentre.
  2. Find the button below the word Auto.
  3. Press these buttons in the following sequence: [Clear], [Auto], [Clear], [Auto] NOTE: All of the lights on the Control Panel should go out and the LED Display should go blank. If the lights do not go out, then repeat step 3 until they do. It may be necessary to increase or decrease the pace of the [Clear], [Auto], [Clear], [Auto] sequence.
  4. Press the [10's] key one time and the [1's] key four times to enter '14' in the LED Display, as if you were to make 14 copies.
  5. Press the green [Start] button.
  6. Press the pink [Clear] button two times.
  7. The WorkCentre should now warm up and come to ready.
  8. If the above steps do not clear the error code, repeat steps 3 to 6 a second time.

My canon copier D420 had a paper jam. can't get the copier to work now.

Try checking the paper path, there might be a broken or loose gear in there, a bent wire or stuck debris. If you done this and all seems ok but the error message keeps flashing, try to do a hard reset. That usually clears off error messages. If nothing happens, you might need to call a technician.

Flashing message "service needed" code

That is a jet stack heat error.
Most likely problems
Bad Ink Loader
Bad Print Head
Bad Pre heater.

The Left Jetstack is drawing less power than expected. My guess would be a bad printhead.

H 4 code flashing

The H4 code indicates the fuser may have blown the thermistor. It also could be a false error code. Try this series to clear the error and if it returns, then you'll know for sure the fuser is the culprit. To reset press the following buttons:
  1. Press this sequence: CLR-Exposure-CLR-Exposure
  2. The display will go blank
  3. enter "14", press "PRNT"
  4. Press "CLR" several times to exit.
Give that a try and good luck.

My Sharp AL-1217 keeps flashing H4 and does not respond

This is a typical fuser lamp issue. This is usually caused by a fluctuation in current supplied to the fuser assembly when the copier is warming up.

This cannot be solved by powering off the unit nor by unplugging it!

Follow the simple steps below to correct the issue:

  1. Power on the unit.
  2. When the LED display starts flashing "H" and "4", Press C and Auto button(this is the leftmost button with the copier console facing you)
  3. Repress the C and Auto Buttons again
  4. Press the copies button until 14 appears on the LED.
  5. Then Press the BIG Blue COPY button(the rightmost button with the copier console facing you)
Hurray, that's all folks

Toner error message on copy machine

Is "CH" steady or flashing? If it's steady, the door is not shut properly.
If it's flashing, the machine doesn't detect the presence of the toner cartridge (defective toner cartridge). Try another toner cartridge (an empty cartridge will do).

To get the blue handle to stay locked sometimes takes fiddling with it when the cartridge is in.
