Re: printer will not talk to printer

So now the pc and printer both work again ?

If your using a Usb try

-Restarting and unplugging everything then connect it again
-Plugging it in a different Usb port.

Well, that's all I got for now, respond with mroe details if you can.

Re: printer will not talk to printer


what you can do is first check if your printer will work on other computers. if so, then you may say that the problem is not with the printer and its on the pc. but if printer still wont work on other computers, then its time for your printer to check with the service center.

hope this helps

Error code ccf01

One of the rarest machines in the Konica Minolta line up!!!!!
A printer without a control panel. the code deal with one control board not talking to another, recommend a tech look at it he might be able to re-flash the firmware the copiers operating system worse case one or both boards are bad. Is the machine on a good surge protector not an Ace hardware 9.99 special? Nothing against Ace. But a thousand dollar machine should be protected with a good minimum 100 dollar surge protector.

Following a power cut, my HL2142 has all lights flashing. Can't fix it. Help.

A power surge most likely damaged your printer. Printers are a cheap item and getting it repaired would most likely not a cost effective solution.
To prevent power surge problem you need to connect all your computer equipment and printer to a power board with a built-in surge protection then plug this power board into the mains outlet.

Hi I have a Ricoh 1515MF and I recently had a power surge that fried my power strip, desktop and my Ricoh. The Ricoh will not turn on anymore. I have tried switching outlets, new power strips and nothing...

The power supply unit within the printer also would have damaged while the surge took place . The SMPS - the power supply - is quite sensitive to the power surge and so could have damaged the driver or the front end . you need to take a look at the SMPS unit to confirm. remove the power supply and check for fuse, if the fuse blows again then you have a problem in hand.

I have a Brother DCP 7040. I changed the ink toner cartridge. I followed instructions exactly. I got a message to clean the wire. I had already done that, but I did it again several times. I still got...

this sounds like a fun problem, have you tried plugging the power for brother into a different wall socket, and not a surge surpressor, maybe even move it to another room. it is possible that the machine may not be getting enough power.

After sitting in power save mode for a long period of time the printer might not function properly. This happens when the printer is plugged into a surge protector. Unplug from the surge protector and plug directly into the wall power socket.

Step 1:

Please try to print Self test Print from the Printer (without PC ie. remove the USB cable from the PC)

Step 2:
If the Self test Print is Ok, try to connect your printer to PC
and Print Test Page
Go to Start >> Printers and Faxes >> Select your Printer F380
then Right click Properties and Click on "Print Test Page"
If this prints Ok then all the connections you have made are correct
In case, it does not print then please check your USB cable try to change it

Step 3:
You can uninstall your Driver
and install the new driver, to download the driver for F380 All in One Printer Please click the below link
Choose appropriate Operating System
HP F380 All in One Printer Driver

I hope this will resolve your problem
all the best

Have you checked the fuse[s]? You don't mention your location so I cannot comment of what protection devices that may be involved. UK has fused 13amp wall plugs for example.

Printer won't turn on

Same thing happen to me. There was a lightning storm on Saturday night so, even though I have a surge protector, I assume my MP830 took a surge. HERE IS THE SOLUTION! If you unplug the printer (pull the plug!) for at least 20 minutes (which lets the system discharge) then plug it back in, the system is allowed to reset and will fire back up when you press the power button. I know the above post is an old one, but I'm hoping this will help other searchers like me.
