    This is a 3 month old printer. It's been back to the repair shop twice when it would not switch on. They couldn't fix it so they gave me another one. This one does not print. The documents line up in the print queue but nothing happens. I've spent hours trying to get it going. Have uninstalled and reinstalled and downloaded new drivers and tried all the USB ports. The colour ink tank is low. Will it fail to print even in black if this is low? Should I try kicking it? Help would be appreciated but I feel this model is a lemon.

After paper jaming, its better if u could remove the papers without openint the back key. If you opened the back key and return it after removing the papers, there is a big chance to have this (power on) problem. Thanks moiyasser, I tried your method, and succeded but with several attempts.

Monitor comes on and then immediately goes dark goes off


Your monitor's power supply is probably bad. If your inclined, you can pry apart the monitor shell and replace any bulged capacitors you see on the power supply. Replacement capacitors are available from mouser.com.

My monitor comes on and then goes off


Time for a new monitor. I have the same problem. Tried the monitor on three different PCs and it turns on for 2 seconds then goes blank, power stays on (green LED on power switch).
Temporary solution that worked for 1 day was to turn the brightness to 0 if you can manage to keep it on long enough to use the menu.

PPOwer Light comes on anfd goes off


It depends on what is wrong and you can narrow it down with the self check your set has.

If set has been unplugged--plug it in and turn it on--when green power light comes on and shortly after goes out----on the front of the set press and hold both the menu and input (device) buttons at same time for at least 5 seconds and release both.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it for a total of five times.

2,2 is most common and most easy to fix.

Let me know what error code you find.

This set has a self check feature--if set has been unplugged it clears the error buffer--plug in and try to turn on set.

When green light comes on and then goes off ON THE FRONT OF THE SET press and hold BOTH the menu and input(device) buttons at same time for at least 5 seconds and release both buttons.

Power light will blink a 2 digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat the code for a total of five times.

When the tv plugged up the power led blinks 3 times. When the power button is pressed the tv comes on for three seconds and turns back off. What could be the problem? Could this be a convergence problem?


Do the self check when power light goes out:

ON front of set (not remote) press and hold both the Menu and Input (Device) buttons at same time for 5 seconds or longer and release both buttons.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it several times.

Let me know code.

Won't boot. Power light on, No Video Signal message


It's also possible that your operating system has become corrupted. See if there is enough time to boot into safe mode, or choose a boot option to go into the recovery partition.

Have you made any recent hardware or software modifications?
