These are the symptoms for having the phone line plugged into the wrong jack on the machine. The line from the wall should go into the "L" jack. The jack with the image of a phone is use for an answering machine or additional phone.

I have HP 3700n color printer.


Your print driver is set to store the print job. Unless you have updated the amount of memory that your printer has, most 3700 series do not have enough memory to do this. Check your printer settings closely. Right click on the printer icon in the control panel and select properties. Click the advanced tab and then click on printing defaults and you will see a tab called Job Storage. Make it is turned off and then apply. This should solve your problem.

Printer fault


The Canon Pixma IP 4000 printer has a self-diagnosing print head error notification system. Generally the "Alarm/Power" light will flash and tell you what kind of problem you might be having with your print head.
You can also run tests yourself to identify problems.

Look at the "Alarm/Power" light and see how many times it's flashing.
If it flashes orange 11 times consecutively, that means there is a print head alignment issue. Perform deep cleaning, then move the printer away from any strong light sources.
To deep clean, click the Maintenance tab in the "Printers" folder.
Then click the "Deep Cleaning" icon. You can select all colors, black, or selected colors. Click on "Execute."
If it flashes orange five times consecutively, that means there is a print head error.
Reseat the print head, then reset the printer.
To reseat the print head, make sure the printer is on.
Open the paper output tray and top cover.
Make sure the print head holder is in the center and open the inner cover. remove all the ink tanks.
Raise the print head lock lever and remove the print head.
Reseat the print head and lock the lever.
Replace the ink tanks.


Check to see if the ink is ejecting normally from the print head nozzles by running a test.
Press and hold the "Resume/cancel" button.
When the Power lamp flashes twice, release the button.
Examine the printed output.
Use the references below to compare your output to what Canon suggest is correct.
If the output is incorrect, then perform deep cleaning, if necessary repeat twice.

Replace the ink tanks if you're unable to get a good result by following the previous steps. make sure the printer is on, lift the top cover.
The print head holder will move to the center.
Press on the tab to release the tank.
Unwrap a new tank.
Make sure you can see the air hole and insert the new tank until you hear a firm click.
Repeat for the other tanks if you suspect from your print test that they have failed.

The paper light is flashing. The tray has paper, there is no paper jam. I check everything, put tray back in, press go and after a few seconds, there is a click noise and it starts flashing. What do I do?


The light flashing may mean more things, not just a paper jam. Could mean any of the following:
- Front cover is open: Close the front cover of the printer.
- Back cover is open: Close the back cover of the printer.
- Paper jam: Clear the paper jam. To see paper jams and how to clear them, click here. If the printer does not start printing, press the Go button.
- No paper fed manual feed slot: Put the paper back in the manual feed slot.
- Memory full: The printer memory is full and the printer cannot print full pages of a document. To solve this problem, click here.
- Print overrun: A print overrun occurred and the printer cannot print full pages of a document. To solve this problem, go here.
- Drum Error: The corona wire needs to be cleaned. To see how to clean the corona wire, click here.

Printer makes clicking noise


Make sure the printer is not out if ink. When the light flashes this may be the case. Also check the print queue. If it contains pending print jobs and there is no paper the light will flash. Here is how to check print queue: Click Start > click priters and faxes > double click printer icon and see if there is something ... If you see any print jobs delete them right away. and restart your computer. This should solve your problem.
