Try to pull out the cord to turn the unit OFF abruptly. Then after 3 minutes turn it back ON. The unit should initialize and start. try also to look at the inside part of the unit for debris preventing the movement of the head.

    Option 1
    Electrolytic capacitors may cause this problem (might be bulging).
    Replace them all in CPU boar.

    option 2

    You can get service manuals on EBAY. But, if all the lights are flashing and you get 6 beeps. The batteries need to be replaced.

HP Photosmart Premium C309 with all lights flashing. Won't do anything, even scan. No resets work. All I want to do is scan. Help.


Either the carriage is jammed or there is a major electronic board failure. With the power disconnected, try to move the carriage back and forth with your hand. If it seems sticky, clean off the carriage rod and put a drop of light oil on it. Then work the carriage back and forth until it moves freely. Plug in and all should be well.
If this does not help and you can't find any jammed paper or objects, you have a major failure and it will be cheapest to buy a new unit.

Red and green lights are flashing alternatively and colour ink cartridge has run out. How do i change the cartridge?


Flashing alternately mean waste pad full. Reset using SSC utility or Adjusment program/resetter. But, you must replace cartridge before. Turn off printer, unlock carriage lock (left side of carriage at parking position). Move carriage by hand to replacement position. Replace ink tank. Reset using the resetter.

How do you unlock a De Ville 410


Are you saying the carriage is locked, so it can't go back & forth? Sticking out of the right-hand side of the carriage are two tabs; I think they're light blue. Pressing down one one locks the carriage. Pressing down on the other unlocks it. When the carriage is unlocked and moves out of the way, you can see the ramps and notch molded into the bottom of the case to hold the carriage for shipping.

Scanner carriage jammed #3 and #6 does nothing.


Check if you haven't moved the scanner lock lever accidentally - find the lock lever (used to immobilize the carriage in transport) and move it to locked position, then to unlocked, and power up your unit. Chances are that the carriage was not dislocated when trying to move while locked, and will start to operate.
If it's not that, it may be a number of things, like broken belt, encoder strip (if any), carriage motor fault - things you won't be able to repair yourself.

Epson perfection 2400 photo scanner stuck with flashing red light


You may have accidently pushed the LOCK button - this button is used to LOCK the carriage into place when moving the scanner to another location or shipping it.

Check for a button and the picture of a LOCK, it is usually at the back of the scanner, you can push it left or right, and you have an open lock and a closed lock picture under it. Make sure you didn't accidently push it to the LOCK position when holding the scanner - that loud sound means your carriage is locked and cannot move - once you set the button to UNLOCK this should solve your problem.

HP deskjet 5550


If there is power to the machine then there is most likely something broken in your printer. If there is no power then the carriage is locked. Turn the machine on, when the carriage moves pull the power. The carriage will now be unlocked while the the power is off.
