Press the go button 3 times and check the last errors, sometimes you need to run the blue tab on the drum back and forth about 20 times and blow out the area below the opening for that tab with a can of air. Usually solves that problem.

My dell printer goes through the motions of printing but keeps coming up with a blank page. I have reinstalled the printer, unplugged it to reset any codes, cleaned the cartridges with warm paper towel,...


Hi

Please try to add or set up the printer again and set it as default printer. and then try to print the test page.

If not, remove the cartridge and rub the print head into a plain paper with alcohol until inks flows on the paper. Return the cartridges and run the print nozzle for 2-3 times. Then try to print again.

Please let me know if you need more help. Please rate my solution if it helps you or might help others.

Hp printer power light keeps blinking -- wont print any document


Turn both your printer and computer off then after a few minutes turn back on. This should cancel the print job.

6A00 Error code? I reset, checked for jams, etc, but no results? Any clues? It is a MP830 Canon, with a bit of printing time, probably several thousand total documents by now. The error code just came on...


OK this is old but you may look back
Error 6A00
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Lanier 5645 cannot reset printer red button just keeps coming on


when you press the 'red' button, it probably says 'paper mismatch, or load "XXX" paper, and you can override it by selecting one of your paper trays manually? It is likely a "legal size document' and you don't have legal size paper loaded, or something along those lines. Try printing the document after manually selecting the paper size/tray (turning off auto paper select) in your printer preferences dialog box on your PC first.

ALL THE LIGHTS ARE KEEP FLASHING ON AND OFF


Unplug the printer from the power strip or wallk outlet for a few minutes.
Disconnect the printer from the computer see it it powers up normally, if so connect it to the computer.
If the lights are still lit, and the printer is brand new, and none of the suggestions helped, call the manufacturer as it is in warranty.
Good Luck

Paper feed and printing problem


Don't know if it's the same problem i had but its maybe worth a try. My paper went in a little, the wheels were turning but it didn't take the rest of the paper or print.
Someone replied to my problem, i tried it and it fixed 1st time. Also seems to of worked for others, it seems to reset the sensors or something.
Solution:- Use a piece of thin card, a magazine cover is what i used, make sure its A4 size then try to print something, as the paper starts moving push it through!! and hey presto it worked for me, everything printing fine now.
hope it works, let me know, Garty

Printing Dillema


Flashing resume light also can mean:

1. cartridge is missing or an incorrect print cartridge is installed
2. cartridge is out of ink
3. dirty cartridge contacts
4. paper jammed

Check are cartridges firmly snapped into place and not empty. Use water to wash copper on cartridges if contacts are dirty.
