SOURCE: Both ink and paper feed lights flash red. No paper is jammed.

Two possible causes..

1. If the ink and paper lights are flashing alternately with each other (ie: not together) then it's the old "Service required" problem and a quick visit to wasteink.co.uk will help with that.

2. The cleaning station/wiper (otherwise known as the parking pad) has managed to pull itself out of position and is currently doing an impression of a jack in the box instead of being hooked into the rest of the cleaning/parking system.

If it's the latter you need to move the printhead out of the way (to the left) and then push the white cleaning part down and then across to the right so that it couples up with the black part of the parking pad properly... It's very difficult to explain how this looks but if I get a chance tomorrow I'll put some pictures up on wasteink.co.uk with some troubleshooting info.

That said, you'll probably figure it out for yourself and it's just a bit of trial and error until you get the pad hooked up properly...

Oh and once it's happened once it'll happen again so in my case I put a small dab of hot melt glue on the connection point between the white and black part (once it was back in position) and this has resolved the problem for me.... Your mileage may vary however.

Hope the above helps anyway...

Martin

Red light is constantly blinking and when try to print, there is always a paper jam


Every time there is paper jam, the printer knows the job is not completed and hence tries to re-print after the paper is removed and cover is shut.

Clear the print job from computer.
Power off the printer and Clear the paper jam (if any)
I would try to use different tray. The paper pickup roller in one path may be worn out.
eg Sheet feeder or multipurpose tray.
Load paper in new tray
Set the application to use new tray

Ensure you sue the right thickness (gsm) of the paper. Quality of paper is crucial. Too thin; too thick can affect functioning.

How to stop printing once it has started


For Brother Laser Machines. Start by pulling the paper tray out a little. This allows the page that is currently feeding through the system the chance to get through without jamming causing a whole slew of other problems.

Once the printer has stopped trying to feed the pages through coming up with an error saying paper out then you can look at deleting all the print jobs in the print queue on your computer. All but the one currently being printed should disappear when you delete them. The one that is left will be errored.

Then turn your printer off for 30 seconds closing the paper tray and try to delete that last job from the queue.

If it will not go then turn your printer back on and let the last couple of pages print out. these are pages that are stuck in the system. If the print job did disappear then just turn on your printer as normal and it should be clear of any jammed printing and you don't end up with Paper Jams in the printer to clear.

* 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.

Hi there try to power off printer then power back on, this is usually a print job that is qued up but not printing, also if you have any print jobs in your windows printer que, delete them with the printer off. this will clear the printer. otherwise check for a paper jamb.


Also try
Hello there Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Flashing red lights and letter E on my hp printer


basically for this printer I have found that just restarting your computer will solve almost anything. make sure there is no paper left jammed in the printer and restart. sometimes you have to delete the print job in the printer que. there should be a printer icon down my your clock, right click, open active printers, and delete your file. restart your computer and try again
