Re: 2 blinking red lights

First make sure you replaced with the exact same and that it is inserted all the way down and you took off all the plastic from the cartilage.

How do I replace a cartridge for the samsung clx-3175FN?

1. Open front door of printer
2. Each cartridge is colored coded to correspond to the toner color shown on the small dislay screen which displays empty or low toner for each color.
3. Remove that cartridge and replace with a new one. Make sure cartridge is seated in printer then close door and make sure it closes flush with the printer gbody otherwise the sensors will think door is open and not allow printer to operate.

If you are not using a samsung manufactured cartridge there is an additionl procedure o turn off the flshing red light on the front nel. Post another question if that is the case.

The green light is blinking constantly and the printer won't print

When the green lamp constantly blinking this mean one or both print head are defective.Here we can find which cartridge is defective.Open cover put out color cartridge then close cover.If blinking stops replace color cartridge.If blinking continues put out black cartridge and put in color.If blinking stops replace black cartridge, if not stop replace both cartridges.
This printer can work with only one cartridge.If you don't use color printing just remove the color cartridge.

Won't print, orange triangle with exclamation point

This triangle light blinking indicates that a door is open. Open the front access door completely. Close the front access door completely. Open the rear door and close it.

If this didn't fix it refer to this guide for all errors you get with this printer from HP website.

The red light on left is blinking. What does that indicate? I have a deskjet 904C. There are three light The left one is blinking, the middle is okay and the right is the green one, that shows me the...

If you open the door on the top of the printer, while it is powered on, the ink cartridges will move to a spot that shows you the status of your ink.. There are little cartoon pictures of the cartridges with smiles or frowns to tell you if you have an empty color or black cartridge.

I can't switch my hp1560 printer on. A green light keeps blinking

it can be a problem with the cartridge

Just do one thing take out both the cart
Insert black one only and then close the door if it blinks then just take out the black cart and insert the color one and close the door and check if its fine or not

If its not blinking then its a cart issue
if its still blinking and cartriges are new its a definate problem with the printer

It will not print.

Hi Greenhorn, Your info is slightly conflicting - I think. As I remember the C60 has just 2 LED's: 1 - Green for Power 2 - Red for Error The third button - Cartridge exchange - has no LED Now it is a while since I looked at a C60 and my brain leaks like a sieve, but that's the way I remember it and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. The error codes I remember are: Printer status - Indicators - Priority Power - Error Power ON condition On - Ink sequence Blink - Ink Cartridge change mode Blink - Data processing Blink - Paper Out *1 - On Paper jam condition *1 - On Ink end (Black) *1 - On -> Blink Ink level low (Black) - Blink-> Blink Ink end (Color) *1 - On -> Blink2 Ink level low (Color) - Blink-> Blink2 Ink end (Black and Color) - On -> On No Ink Cartridge (Black or Color) *1 - On Maintenance request (Ink Overflow Countererror) *1 Alt Blink Alt Blink Fatal error *1 Off On Special setting Blink2 Blink2
