Re: Blinking lights

I believe that you are talking about the photoconductor kit this needs replacing when it has reached end of like if you don't replace it you will get poor print quality and risk damaging the printer as well. Below find the lexmark web site with their quick reference guide.

My Dell 1320c printer toner light won't stop blinking

this will sound dumb, make sure you remove all the shipping materials from the cartridge including anything that may be over the electronic components to let the printer identify the new cartridge.

The printer toner light is continuously flashing even after putting in a new cartridge

After installing a new cartridge and the blinking light is on Toner Low, it means that the photoconductor is almost full and should be replaced soon. Press and release the Continue button (green button) to clear the light sequence and continue processing the print job. If the light is still blinking, replace the photoconductor kit.

The orange light is blinking. Above the light is a triange with an exclamation point in it. I have tried deleting and reloading the printer and that doesnt work.

Do you have a new toner cartridge loaded? The red/orange light will blink when toner is low, even if everything else is working fine. Try printing out a test sheet and see what that tells you about your toner level. (Test sheep prints by holding the orange button down a second or two and releasing.)

Since I'm mainly printing drafts for my own use, I've just let the light blink while I eke out whatever I can from the remaining toner (occassionally removing the cartridge and shaking it -- being careful of clothes and surroundings -- to re-distribute the toner on the inside.

Replaced toner and maintenance kit -keep getting yellow lights on exclamation and toner

If the toner and the exclamation lights are blinking yellow after replacing the toner and maintenance kit, then you will need to reset the photoconductor counter. But if the exclamation and the toner lights are steady on yellow, then that means there is something wrong with the toner.

Toner light keeps blinking

The inkjet uses ink, not toner. When the light is blinking it indicates something is wrong with one of the cartridges, such as can't find it, not installed, out of ink, improperly installed, printer has died. First thing to try is to disconnect the power (not just power off) for 5 - 10 minutes and reconnect. If that does not resolve it, inspect the cartridges and reinstall them. If you have another printer that uses the same cartridges, try the cartridge in it. if not, get another set of cartridges and install them. If none of these steps resolve the problem, chances are that the printer is the problem and is probably not worth spending additional time on it.

ML-2510 Laser Printer : persistent blinking red light


This problem you will be noticed when toner is 90% empty.
Does the printer is functioning or No. If yes the problem is 90% toner is finished.[10% toner remaining alert]
If printer is not functioning Please change the toner from Genuine dealer. Else your printer fails due to non genuine and refilled toner.

My Dell AIO printer keeps blinking right ink cartridge incorrect.Exclamation light keeps blinking too.

Try going to the Dell site and searching for that printer model. Then see if you need to have both ink cartridges populated and filled with ink, to make it work.

You might also clean the contacts on the ink cartridges, to make sure the printer knows you have both cartridges in the printer, even though they're not both filled with ink.

It just might require both to be filled, before it will print for you.

See what Dell says.

Good luck.

Maybe the toner is low... According to the manual, a blinking red light:

• A minor error is occurring and
the printer is waiting for the error
to be cleared. When the problem
is cleared, the printer resumes
• The toner cartridge is low. Order
a new toner cartridge. You can
temporarily improve print quality
by redistributing the toner. See
page 8.3.
• The toner is totally exhausted.
Remove the old toner cartridge
and install a new one. See page
• The toner cartridge reached the
end of its life.

Hi I have just reconnected my Konica Minolta Page Pro 1400 and installed the new cartridge - when I switch it on I can hear it start running and then it stops and the fan keeps going but the error light is...

In the user guide, a blinking error and ready light may indicate a communication failure and to make sure the printer cable is seated properly. Otherwise a blinking error light only indicates a media jam or no toner cartridge installed. For the media issue, make sure no paper is caught anywhere inside the printer. If the toner is the problem, try another cartridge. One of those should solve your problem.
