Error ##334., its my problem

The error code ##334 represents a EEPROM check error. The manual says this means the Printed Circuit Board may need replacing, however, try this procedure.
Insert paper into machine.
1)To enter service mode press Menu, copy, #
2) Select Test Mode with the + or - keys
3) Press OK
4) Press 8, lcd shows 'Please Wait', after wait, press 3, the lcd then alternates between 3-0 (EEPROM clear), and 3-1 (Purge flag)
5) When EEPROM clear (3-0) shows in lcd, press 0, then OK, then Stop then press the OFF button.

Repeat the above from Step1 to step3
in step 4 this time reset the Purge flag by pressing 0 when 3-1 shows in the lcd, OK, Stop, Off.
If the red fault light is still blinking press Resume.

hope this helps

Welcome to Fixya.
On your printer set-up of copies is set as 2 copies.
To change the number of copies here are some steps to follow.
1. Go to the document that you want to print.
2. Click "File"
3. Choose "Print"
4. On the page you will the "Copies" below is the "Number of copies"
5. Change the "Number of copies", click the arrow up or down, or you can simply type the number.
6. Then click "OK".
Hope this information can help.
Thank you for using Fixya.

My MFC 8860DN does not scan or copy but instead says please wait

Turn the machine off and hold menu while turning it on and keep holding it while the machine starts up. This should go into maint mode.

When it gets into maint mode you can try 99 to exit. This is like a soft reset. Hard reset is hitting 01 in maint mode and then 99 to exit.

Let me know if this is helpful.

It automatically print a page everytime I start my hp psc 1315

Hi Siddarth

In HP PSC 1315 printer after replacing new Ink Cartridges the printer always prints Alignment test page every time you turn it ON.To resolve this problem you must complete the alignment process.


1.Turn the printer ON.
2.Once its ON, it will print the Alignment page. Place the page in the scanner bed correctly.
3.Then Press START SCAN button.
4.The power light will start blinking, wait until the power lights turns solid.
5.Now Alignment process is over.Discard the paper from scanner.
6.Turn the printer OFF and then ON, it will not print that page again.

Note:Please follow this steps every time when you replace the Cartridges.

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.
