SOURCE: hp 3820 not printing

Ink buildup in the internal service station causes the small poorly designed pusher cogs on two drive gears to snap off and the printer is instantly converted to junk.
HP was giving new printers out for this problem till Jan 06 or so as they realized it was a poor design.
I fixed one with parts from an electronically damaged unit, but usually the blinking lights and "won't print no matter what" problem are sheared gears. Parts are not available. Some people made metal gears (the only answer) on a very short run basis in Europe several years ago because people LOVE this printer.
Once you know the problem, it's simple to keep it from happening with some maintenance, but once they shear, it's over.
There was some kind of paper-clip fix that was solving the problem even with sheared gears, but I was never able to understand exactly how it was done. Needed a pic or two.
Otherwise a great printer, huge cartridges last a long time, great quality on photos too.
I have to keep mine running to have a happy wife.

I'm printing labels on my printer. After each run, the printer prints out an hp advertisement page for buying supplies, etc. Almost like a test page. How can I delete this annoying and wasteful...


Try this:
But first print a configuration report.(contain IP address)
Configuration Report
Release GO after LED begins blinking.
Now:
Reset the factory default settings (cold reset)
Turning on the printer while pressing the GO and CANCEL JOB buttons restores the factory default settings.
1 Turn off the printer.
2 Press and hold the GO and CANCEL JOB buttons.
3 Turn the printer on and continue to press and hold the buttons until all three LEDs are blinking.
4 Release the buttons.

I just change the ink cartage and now see the power button and stop button light blinking


If the power button LED blinks - you must understand it is not ready. You must power off the printer - restart the computer. Clear the pending printings from printer buffer (Start - Settings - Printers and Faxes - Choose the printer concerned - delete the pending printings). Now reset the cartridge well and perfectly. Now switch on the computer and printer. The LED will be steady. Take print out now.

My Brother HL-2140 Went out in a storm. All three lights just keep blinking no matter what I do. Held down on the blue light button a number of time, restarted computer, turned off printer, reloaded ink...


You can find the usre's manual here:

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/doc/manual_index.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=hl2140_all&dlid=&flang=English&type2=-1
1) If the LARGE BLUE BUTTON is blinking:
Data remaining in memory
There is remaining print data in the printer memory. If the Ready LED is blinking for
a long time and nothing has printed, press the Go button to print the remaining data
in the memory.
2) If the TONER LED is blinking:
Toner low
Indicates that the toner cartridge is nearly empty. Buy a new toner cartridge and have
it ready for when Toner life end is indicated.
The Toner LED will turn on for 2 seconds and off for 3 seconds.
3) If the DRUM LED is blinking:
Drum life end soon
The drum unit is near the end of its life. We recommend that you get a new drum unit
to replace the current one. See Replacing the drum unit on page 69.
The Drum LED will turn on for 2 seconds and off for 3 seconds.
4) If the RED ERROR LED is blinking:
Front cover is open
Close the front cover of the printer.
Fuser cover is open
Close the fuser cover located behind the back cover of the printer.
Paper jam
Clear the paper jam. See Paper jams and how to clear them on page 85. If the printer
does not start printing, press the Go button.
Memory full
The printer memory is full and the printer cannot print full pages of a document.
Print overrun
A print overrun occurred and the printer cannot print full pages of a document.

The power led of my printer in keeping on blinking.


This problem sounds like it has a print job waiting to print. make sure the paper is inserted properly and press the power button quickly and release. If something prints, it should stop blinking.

Printer will not print


This worked perfectly for my printer:

Waste Ink Counter Reset

Power off printer and covers closed
Hold down the Resume button then press and hold POWER, the Green Indicator will light. While holding down POWER , release RESUME
Double click (2 clicks) RESUME then release BOTH POWER and RESUME and wait still the printer stops blinking.
When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME three(3) times. The indicator should be ORANGE.
Press Power to set data

PROBLEM COPYING WITH MY ALL- IN- ONE


This message is inbuilt into most Canon printers, there is spongy thing in the printer which when fills up fires the message (it's mostly a counter in the printer, which can be reset more later...), per Canon this can only be dealt with in a lab but some of the more adventurous have tried cleaning it by themselves. Note that in a lab they won't clean it, it's a part that needs replacing and it might cost around $60. In most Canon printers there is a reset procedure that can reset the error and allow you to print some more before handling it again. Following are the reset procedures for some of the Printers: (not that F60 isn't listed here) Canon GENERIC "S" SERIES RESET CODE Waste Ink Counter Reset. (1) Turn off the printer. (2) Press and hold the RESUME button, then press and hold the POWER button. (3) Release the RESUME button, Next press and release the RESUME button two(2) more times in succession. Note: you are still holding the POWER button). The printer's carriage will "reset" or move momentarily. If the above was properly performed the printer will enter the "Service Mode". (4) Press the RESUME button 4 times, this will select the clear waste ink counter function. The lamp will alternate (change) color with each key press. 1. Service/Factory test printout, including ink sensor check. 2. EEPROM - Info printout. 3. EEPROM - Initialization. 4. Reset the Waste ink counter. 5. Printer model setting. (More selections beyond this point - However it is best leave them unaltered - You have been warned!)
