SOURCE: not recognizing new ink cartridge

I had the same problem during setup. I tried the sharp rapping and four-letter words solution, but that didn't work for me. I called customer service and after a looooooong hold (apparently everyone in the universe is having problems), I talked to someone who transferred me to the "print head" part of tech support. During the conversation I had so much trouble understanding the guy that I said I wanted to take him off speaker phone so I could hear him better, and I accidentally cut off the call. Wouldn't it be nice if call center people were actually understandable in English.

Nevertheless, he did give me a couple of instructions before I lost the call, and after I did them things worked right. Here is what he said to do:

1. Remove the black and color cartridges.

2. Place finger in upper left hand corner of print head case and gently slide it down. That is when I lost the call, but as I did that the print head case easily slipped out.

I reinstalled it, put the cartridges back in, closed the printer and, voila, the calibration sequence started.

The tech guy took my number "in case we got disconnected," so he could call me back, but so far he didn't call back. Nevertheless, my printer's working. Next step is to hook it up to my computer.

Hope this helps someone.

SOURCE: flashing ink cartridge lights, soild paper light

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

TSP100 Thermal Printer work with a thermosensible paper, there is no ink to change, if the print quality is poor you have to
  • check the paper roller, it can be wrong installed.
  • Check the upper cover if not closed properly close it.
  • check the print head or the pressor roller.

My r230 is having this trouble: the two red lights are blinking.


If the Ink Out light flashes, the printer is getting low on ink; if it is on solid, the printer is completely out of ink and you need to replace the cartridge; if it is flashing rapidly, the printer detected a print head unit or ink cartridge installation error. If the Paper Out light is on solid, you need to install paper in the printer; if it is flashing, the printer detected a paper jam. When both the Ink Out and Paper Out lights are on solid, the printer thinks that there is a carriage error; if both lights are flashing, there is a fatal error and the printer will need to be sent in for service Source(s): http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/suppo...

Brother HL-2070N Laser Printer Will Not Print


First of all, I checked the answers given here, but nothing worked; everytime I turned on the unit, the red light flashed that the printer was out of paper.

From the Brother's HL-2070 manual, in the troubleshooting section: take out the toner cartridge from the front of the machine (be careful, any black toner powder that come off may be very difficult to clean up). I took the toner cartridge to the sink.

There is a blue slide along the top of the unit that will clean the corona wire if you slide it back and forth, from one end to the other (toner/dust can become caked on the wire over time; sliding the slider back and forth simply knocks the caked off 'stuff' off of the wire).

Replace the toner cartridge; it worked fine for me. I was immediately able to print.

When i turn the printer on the ink light and paper light are flashing back and fore and nothing works


You should check your cartridges. If one of them is empty, usually the printer won't print. Your cartridges have chips on them, and that chip determines how much you are going to print. Usually, when both lights are flashing, and nothing works, it has something to do with the cartridges.
If that is not the case though, please leave me a comment, as I would love to help!

My red lights are both flashing and printer will not responed


Both red lights flashing? One should be for paper jam and the other for low/insufficient ink. I presume this is a deskjet/injet printer. The combination of these two lights flashing usually indicates a more serious issue rather than just low ink or paper jam. It is indicative of incompatibility of ink cartridge. After a while some cartridges just could become incompatible with the machine. All things being equal (i.e. no paper jam issue) a replacement of your ink cartridge will resolve this issue. Just get brand new ink cartridge/cartridges. It is usually ok to replace only the one that has become incompatible. But the issue is you need to troubleshoot to determine. You may not have the resources to do this, so better to replace both or replace one-by-one.
