    Have you checked the fuse on the power supply board? Also try plugging it into a different wall socket and changing the power cord.

    Thanks J

My black ink button on my pixma mp495 printer is blinking. Why?


A B LED light denotes that the black ink cartridge is running low.
A C LED light denotes that the colour ink cartridge is running low.
If the alarm light is on (lightning bolt in a triangle) it should be accompanied by an error code.
Canon MP495 - Error Codes If the printer displays an error message, the following information should help to diagnose the problem.
The led screen on the printer will flash a letter E and will then be followed by two numbers:

Error 0xc18a0101 persists. Have tried solution given earlier for 0xc18a0001 without success. Ink system failure not resetting; all cartridges are full.


Its tricky mechanism, once printer detects ink system failed it cannot be resetted. Do this take out cartridges from printer., open right cover., find out logic card., remove cmos battery., wait for 5 minutes., refix batyery., power on the printer., follow the screen messges ... I hope it will solve the issue..

My printer always shows E22..wht the meaning that! how to solution...


The E 22 error code is a carriage error, which means there is something wrong in the cartridge area. To fix this error, turn off the printer and unplug it. Remove all of the ink cartridges and check for signs of leaking or damage. Now look closely inside the cartridge slots for dried up ink and use a tiny bit of alcohol on a QTIP to clean the ink off the slot. Reinsert the cartridges and plug the printer back in and turn it on. The error code will disappear

WHAT DOES THE SC 38 MEAN ?? WHAT FAULT DOES THIS SERVICE CODE REFER TO?? I HAVE A LANIER 2138 COLOUR LASER PRINTER, (SAME AS RICOF AP3800 SERIES)


SC is for "Service Call". The error may be caused by a defect or an irritation of internal sensors.
Ricoh recommends to physically switch off the printer, wait for a few minutes and power on again. (Irritation by change in surrounding temperature)
If you recently replaced any movable parts inside, remove it again and reseat, many parts inside are checked by sensors for proper seating.
If this does not help, you need to call Ricoh customer service.

Ricoh error code sc291


There's a list of Ricoh error codes right here: http://www.tecnodigitale.com/riparazioni/pdf/Codici_errore_Ricoh.pdf but it doesn't indicate an sc291 for the 3800 or for any other model for that matter.

There are usually contacts on the cartridge that interface with a reader in the printer to detect the chip in the cartridge. Examine a cartridge and look for any electrical contacts, make sure they don't look damaged or dirty clean them with 98% isopropyl alcohol. With the printer powered off and upplugged, try to find the corresponding contacts inside the printer for each of the contacts on the cartridge, clean those too.

If that doesn't change, try a different cyan cartridge, if that still doesn't work you will probably have to get the machine serviced.
