    Everything looks in order on the HL 1440; however, after printing several sheets, I ran out of paper. When I put in more paper, the red alarm light came on & will not go off! What is wrong with this printer?

    Pull toner cartridge out, and check for a piece of paper stuck in it. Thats what I found with my problem. Cleared paper jam from printer body, did not catch small piece of paper stuck in cartridge. Removed piece of paper from cartridge and lights went out.

    Fantastic solution. I had opened my computer and looked at the cartridge for a jam at least 5 times. After I read the post that said there was a small piece of paper sure enough I looked and there it was. Immediately the printer red alarm light went off. THANK YOU

Dell1110 Laser Printer. Changed Cartridge - New Fuse - Checked twice Simpson 260 No blown fuses on circuit board. (1) Fuse, (2) wire. No burn spots Red & Green lights blink after 10 sec of OR/GR...


Hello,
If you have flashing RED and GREEN LEDs on your Dell 1110 your printer will need servicing by the Dell service department. It is hard to say what is wrong without looking at the printer in person but those two lights together spell trouble not easily fixed. It could be a damaged circuit board or component. This typically has nothing to do with ink, paper jams, etc.

Epson Stylus PHOTO R220 red lights keep flashing


I hope this will help you :)
* Green Power light flashes- The printer is receiving a print job, replacing an ink cartridge, charging ink, or cleaning the print head.
* RED paper light is On- If the CD/DVD try guide is open, close the CD/DVD tray guide, load paper, then press the paper button. Your paper ran out or multiple sheets loaded at the same time . Load paper and press the paper butoon to resume printing.
* RED paper light flashes- Paper is jammed in the printer. Press the paper button to eject the jammed paper. If the light is still flashing , open the cover and remove all paper, including any jammed or torn pieces. Then reload paper and press the paper button to continue printing.
* RED Ink Light Flashes - One or more cartridges are low on ink. Check the message that appears on your screen to determine which cartridge is low, or follow the instructions in " Checking the Ink Supply". Make sure you have a replacement cartridge.
* RED Ink Light is ON- One or more cartridges are out of ink or not installed. If you have just installed a new cartridge, it may be incomaptible with the printer or incorrectly installed. Reinstall it or replace it with the correct cartridge
* RED Ink and RED paper lights flash alternately- The CD/DVD tray guide was left open when you turned on the printer or when printing on paper. Just simply close it/
* Green Power Light is Off; RED paperand RED Ink Lights flashing- Paper may be blocking movement of the print head. Turn off the printer, then open the cover and remove any jammed paper or other foreign objects. Turn the printer back on again. Or it may have an internal error. Turn off the printer, wait a few seconds, then turn it on again.

The red and green lights are flashing continously and it won print


The lights continually flashing indicate a paper jam or the printer being out of ink. Check/clear any paper jam and verify the ink cartidge is set correctly.

My red and green light wont stop flasing. i have put new cartridges in.


If the pair is the green power light and the red paper light that are flashing, then you have a paper jam. You need to check the paper path (it's possible that a small piece of paper tore and is causing the jam).

I hope this helps.

The red light is blinking and it doesn't print.


There are actually some certain meaning on the red light and green light showing different information to user. The summaries are:
1) Green On, Red Off = Printer Ready.
2) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Fast-Flashing = Printer warm up.
3) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Off = Printer off-line.
4) Green Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Processing Data.
5) Green Off, Red On = Cover Opened, Toner Empty or Developer Unit / Drum unit missing.
6) Green Off, Red Fast-Flashing = Paper Jam or waiting for jam reset.
7) Green Off, Red Slow-Flashing = Paper Empty or Paper tray is not inserted.
8) Green Off, Red Off = Printer power is off.
9) Green Very-Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Printer in sleep mode.
10) Green (any condition above), Red Slow-Flashing = Toner low or paper empty.

So what is your printer condition? Better know what is going on your printer so can solve the problem.

Kyocera FS-920 RED LIGGHT IS BLINKING AND GREEN LIGHT IS OFF


There are 2 possibility to cause your printer acting like this:
1) Green Off, Red Fast-Flashing = Paper Jam or waiting for jam reset.
2) Green Off, Red Slow-Flashing = Paper Empty or Paper tray is not inserted.

If it is condition 1) then just remove the jam paper then open and close the Top Cover to clear the error.
If it is condition 2) then insert some paper in the paper tray.

Flashing red light - no paper jam


I had this problem and couldn't figure out until I opened the front, pulled out the toner cartridge and found a paper jam.  Removed it and now I have the green light.

Light keeps flashing red,amber, green


If you turn off the printer and turn it back on, do you get any noises, ie motor noises, or does it instantly go to all lights flashing?
If you get no noises this usually indicates a board fault and you should look for a new printer.
