I spent lots of time last night trying to get my printer to work - it did a couple times and now it won't print out again - trying to print from the computer to the printer.

IF THE PRINTER has any ALARM LIGHT. check for paper jam or BAD paper pick up roller not grabing the paper (clean or replace it).
If the printer doesn't blink ALARM. check if you have failed jobs in QUE; IF YES DELETE IT AND TRY TO PRINT AGAIN OR TRY UNINSTALL AND REINSTALL THE PRINTER DRIVER.

The orange alarm light in on. Nothing else is happening

This error means that some mechanical parts of your printer is in trouble. This could be some of the causes:

1. The print head is stuck somewhere or is unable to move because of some blockage in the printer's bay.
2. If you are using a Continuous Ink System, then the tubes might have blocked the print heads from moving.

To resolve, turn OFF your printer. Remove such blockage then turn the printer back ON.

Printer Won't Print

Follow the link below for what the lights on the machine mean. I know that if your alarm and data light are on it means the toner is empty, and you wont be able to print, you would need to replace the toner cartridge, please follow the link below.

Won't print

Turn the printer off.
Wait 20 seconds.
Turn the printer on.
Lift the cover -- hopefully, the print-head will move to the position where the cartridges can be accessed.
Remove one cartridge.
Re-insert that cartridge.
Close the lid.
If you still get the "blinking", re-open the lid, remove the other cartridge, and re-insert that cartridge.

Otherwise, see: and enter your model-number, and download the manual (PDF) and follow its directions, or read the online-help for your specific PIXMA.

Alarm light Microline 320 Turbo 9 pin printer - won't print

We swapped out the printer for another one we had in the office that was working. The new printer also got the alarm light. From that we concluded that it was a bad serial card. We swapped the serial card from another printer, and the original printer started working perfectly. Now we just need to find out where we can purchase another serial card, as we have no more 'spares' around here.

  3. Turn the printer back on.
  4. When the DRUM light is lit by itself let go of the button.
  5. Hold in the circular button on the front panel again.

let us know if this works.
