Hi,

Generic solution - Unplug the cord and plug in after some time. Reinstall the drivers and see, if that could fix the issue.

If not, let me know the make and model of the machine? Do you see any error message on the display? Is that intermittent or permanent? Let me know the sequence of blinks....like 3 green blinks then 2 orange and so on.

I would wait for the reply.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

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.

Hello. My Epson Stylus CX 4200 now flashes the letter E and all the lights flash, including "error." How do I get it working again?


here's what you can do:-disconnect the printer from the computer-turn off the printer-inspect for anything foreign inside like jammed paper-turn the power back on-remove the ink cartridge-check the chip connnector at ink tank and at head carriage. If its dirty clean it with soft moist cloth. -check the status monitor. which ink tank not recognized. -press ink light (1-4 times) depends on number ink tank not recognized, press 1 time again, carriage will move co replacement position, unplug and plug again all ink tank, press ink light 1 more.
if that doesn't work, replace ink cartridge ONLY if you have a spare. DO NOT BUY new ink as the printer is bound for repair.

Printer is running out of ink. To put new cartridge in I lift the lid and normally cartridge carrier moves over to left allowing replacement of cartridge. Today no movement---why? Green light is flashing...


Hi there.

It's probably jammed by dirt. Unplug the printer, move the carriage out of the way and clean thoroughly the metallic rails the carriage runs to using a cue tip.You might have to move the carriage multiple times to clean it totally. Finally spread a little fine grease over the metallic rail and again move the carriage from side to side. Now plug it in and try using it.

Let me know what happens.

The print head does not move correctly. Ink cartridges do not light red. Orange flashing light flashes 12 times


I don't know what type of printer you have, but you might try cleaning the thin plastic strip you'll see at the carriage. It has fine lines on it and it tells the printer where the carriage is. If ink or dirt get on it, you will get carriage jams. Try this: get a soft cloth moistened with water and gently (!) rub it on the strip back and forth, moving the ink carriage to clean the entire strip. Don't use anything other than water as the ink is water soluble. Also clean the rod that the carriage moves on with alcohol. Sometimes dust and other debris gets on it and causes it to move jerkily.

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.

Align cartriges message continuously displayed


Here's the deal with the cartridge alignment page....the machine will spit out a series of black lines mixed with yellow ink and at the beginning of each of these lines is a "Green" check mark. The carriage moves back and forth over these lines and green check marks and reads them by use of what is called a "spot sensor" that resides on the right side of the carriage assembly. This is usually noticed by the blue ray of light that shines out of it. So if you are getting an alignment failure one of two things is happening....1)You've have got a bad cartridge (usually the color) and it is not laying down the right colors, specifically the green check mark or 2)You've got a bad spot sensor...even though it may still be shining the blue light, the sensor board can't process the information. Its an easy fix either way.

Paper jam?


Check Paper light flashes but there isn't a paper related problem The check paper light may also flash if there are other problems. Verify the following conditions:
  • Verify that the print cartridge door is closed.
  • The print carriage may be jammed, follow these steps to correct the problem:
    1. Open the print cartridge access door. If the print carriage can move, it should move to center. If the print carriage stays all the way left, unplug the power cord and then plug it back in. This will reset the unit and may allow the print carriage to move from the left.
    2. Disconnect the power cord from the all-in-one.
    3. Remove both print cartridges.
    4. Move the print carriage left and right slightly to verify that the print carriage will move freely. If the print carriage will not move freely, check for obstructions.
    5. Close the print cartridge access door.
    6. Plug the power cord back in.
    7. After the all-in-one initializes, the print cartridge light will flash. Open the access door and install the print cartridges.
    8. Close the print cartridge access door. If the problem returns, remove the print cartridges and wipe the electrical contacts before reinstalling them.
  • Try to make a copy. If the all-in-one pulls in paper but cannot make a copy, there may be a problem with the scanner mechanism. Contact HP for assistance.
