No paper light stays on and printer won't print (paper is full)

The paper empty light stays on, we filled the paper and the printer still won't print. tried shuttin it down and restarting it, removed and replaced the drum and toner. Any ideas would be appreciated

I have a Dell 1600n printer.
The "no paper" display reads.
There is plenty of paper.
I've tried to disconnect then reconnect but to no avail.
I've looked to see if something is jammed but there is nothing.

There is a black, curved-shape piece that hangs down (protrudes) from within the paper bay (visible with cartridge removed) that is spring-loaded. That piece might be jammed or broken.

1. Check your printer to be sure your printer is listed as installed

2. If the print queue is full it can become confused and just hang up so turn off the printer to empty the queue

3. Power up the printer and send one document to print as a test

4. If the printer works, you should be back in business

Red light stays on... wont print wont pick up paper... cleaned as much as I could...


There are a lot of conditions that cause the red light to come on. These include toner cartridge empty, paper jam, waste toner tank full, etc. The only good way of determining the printer fault is to check the smart panel software on your computer. It will tell you what the printer is experiencing.

If the printer can't pick up the paper, check the condition of the paper pickup roller. It is located in the back, and above the paper tray. Often it get dirty and cleaning it with a damp cloth helps it to pick up paper better. Hope this helps you.

When i turn my printer on the light flashes green once and then orange 5 times. cannot get past this stage - any ideas?


Here are all the flashing explanations:

Two flashes: Out of paper or paper feed error

Reload the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

Three flashes: Paper jam

If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, reload the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

See Paper Jams

Four flashes: Empty ink tank

If you press the RESUME/CANCEL button, it will continue printing with an empty ink tank. After printing is finished, replace the ink tank immediately. If you continue printing with an empty ink tank, it may cause damage to your printer.

Refer to your Quick Start Guide for instructions on how to replace an ink tank.

Five flashes: No print head installed/Defective print head

Install the print head. Also, ensure that the protective tape has been removed.

If reinstalling the print head does not solve the problem, replace it with a new one. Contact the Customer Care Center.

Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full

The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, contact the Customer Care Center.

hmmm...that sounds like you need to reset to defaults in the menu/settings area. Or you may need new drivers.

Printer "prints" but when it's done, no ink shows on the page.


When you filled your cartridges were they empty? If so there is a good possibility that the nozzles are gummed and dried up. If you are going to fill them yourself watch the indicator that comes up on the screen it will tell you when you are getting low. If you get a low indication fill it asap. This will keep your nozzles wet and free flowing. Waiting until its empty can cause them to gum up and altimately dry out. My solution is to go to the store buy brand new cartridges. Go through the the full set up that your manufacture recomends. This means using the install new ink cartridge utility that came with your printer. Print a test page and print a nozzle aligment page. Just remember never let your ink completely run out before filling. If you follow this you will never run into this problem again.
