Question about Computers & Internet

After using the 'Copy' or 'Scan' function the printer will not revert to normal 'Print' mode. After switching off and on again it re-sets sometimes. Other times I have to re-set it 4 or 5 times. How can I turn off the copy and/or scan modes after using them?

Do you have anything inbetween the PC and ptr? (ie: Zip drive)
If you can swap cables and it still does it, boot to a DOS prompt and type "dir > LPT1" (without the quotes of course).. If it prints, you have a windows issue.. If not, most likely your printer is hosed.A radical "MEMORY RESET" was needed--not recommended except as last resort.
Turn off printer.
Disconnect data cable from PRINTER!-not comp.
While holding down 1)ALT & 2)RESET & 3)PRINT MODE & 4)LOAD simultaneously--Power Printer back on--Hold buttons for good 5 sec's.
May need to power off & on 1 more time.
PS: Cartridges should both be in ,paper in & loaded ,no ink out lites on.

Thanks for contacting

How do you get an Epson Stylus NX410 out of copy mode?

The NX400 will automatically go into Scan or Print mode from software. So if you want to scan, launching the Epson Scan software will control the scan functions. Similarly, printing from any application will cause the NX400 to go into Print mode. Copy Mode is the only mode you control from the printer device itself.

Hope this helps.

Chek printer ##343

This error indicates that the Waste Ink Tank is full. It needs to be replaced, i.e. the ink pads fitted where the cartridges rest when there is no print jobs in progress (means at the time when cartridges are not moving). You can remove the ink pads and replace them or wash them, reinstall them after they are dried. Sometimes, it's important to reset from the printer if in case cleaning or replacing doesn't help or clear the message. Follow the instructions below:
  • Printer "On"
  • Press "Additional Functions" button.
  • Press "Scan” button.
  • Press “Copy” button.
  • Press “Scan” button.
  • Now it says, “Service Mode/#1 SSSW".
  • Press (keep pressing and don't hold down)“+” i.e. right arrow > “Service
  • Report” > “Test Mode” > “Set”.
  • Now Press right arrow > (optional)Printer Test > “Set”> a message “Please Wait” will be displayed followed by “-8-2+” again press right arrow, wait for few seconds until you see “-8-3+” > “Set.”
  • You'll see “EEPROM Clear”, if you are asked to press “Set”, do so.
  • Now from the available Options, select "0" i.e. “select ink count” > “Set”
  • Again press the “Stop/Reset” button > "On/Off".
Printer will restart.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a Canon Pixma MX330 color printer. It gets used only occasionally, usually to print brochures and the like. I recently switched it to copy mode by pressing the "copy" button on the front; now it...

When you double click the Printer and Faxes icon in the Control Panel you will see the printer that your computer is currently using. See.... if the printer image is clear it is online and ready to use, if its blurred then its in offline mode and cannot be use.

To correct offline printer.. some possible reasons is on the usb cable.. check if there is no open wire along the cable...Inserting the USB connector on the other usb slot of the cpu sometimes work just wait first until it is read.

If the printer is still blurred and offline after checking the usb connection, the 2nd thing to do is check the properties of the printer if it is set to offline mode. how? Double click your printer icon. It will display the print jobs window. Click on the Printer tab and uncheck on the "Use printer Offline". Cancel all pending print jobs, close the printer window and try again to print.

I can't get my printer to print. When I select the mode it only has copy, fax and scan. How can I get this thing to print?

The modes are for standalone functions. When the unit is connected properly to the computer, the drivers installed in the system and this particular printer selected in the print dialog box, it should print regardless of the mode set.

Reset the device when it is not functioning properly. If the device is not functioning properly or to clear memory, reset it.
  1. On the operator panel, press the <ON> button. (The display will go blank.)

    Note: It may be necessary to unplug the power cord if pressing the ON button does not shut off the printer.

  2. Wait approximately ten seconds and then press the <ON> button again.

  3. Wait until the device has completed its cycling process before submitting another job request.

    Note: It may be necessary to unplug the power cord and retry if the above steps do not clear the error.
(This is for 2,113,0 error not 2,114,0 error which isn't listed.)

Brother MFC 665CW can no longer scan since networked

That's rather normal, if your printer doesn't have scan-to-email functionality, you won't be able to scan unless you connect it via USB to a selected machine.

I can't copy or scan but I can print.

I had the same problem on my Mac.  I downloaded two things off Canon's website and all is now working:-
1) Scanner driver (ScanGear for Mac OR MP Drivers for PC) 2) MP Navigator software
Visit:  and choose your drivers.
Restart your machine (with the MP40 switched off) after downloading Switch on, and press Scan... et voila!
NOTE: after putting my Mac in slep mode, the scan button didn't function, but all I had to do was switch the MP450 off then on again for my Mac to recognise it.
Hope this helps!

When I turn on the printer "Download Mode" appears on the lcd screen.

The machine might be trying to download the latest firmware wait a few minutes it may go if not it is it the user manual under on screen messages.
