Question about Dell 1600n All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Clock problems The clock on the printer converts back to 05-04-2004 for some unknown reason with turned off...back on. All the other settings remain intact. Everything, for the most part, works other than this clock issue. Does the printer have an internal battery? Easy to access/change? Any suggestions???

Hmmm..maybe it's a left over from Y2K, or Y20004?..Just kidding..The RTC(Real Time Clock) settings on most printers, are preset with a drop down date, which can be managed in the CMOS. Menu has that option, under settings. However, why it's not holding the time after turn off, is most likely a function of the CMOS battery, as you've figured out.

However, that battery is on the controller board, and is usually swapped out as part of the board replacement. I'm sure, if you open up the unit(takes a few steps), you can find a part number on that battery(should be on extreme lower left of the board). Finding an exact replacement, form, fit, and function, is another thing.

Cd/dvd tray failurer in Epson Artisan Allinone injet printer

If you are experiencing this problem, continue as normal to print your clock then choose preferences and ensure your printer settings are ok and that it is set to print to the dvd/cd tray, then proceed to print your clock.
If you are still experiencing problems Try Solution 2..
Instead of changing your printer settings through Clock Designer, change your default printer settings. Go to the control panel in windows and open the printers section. Find the printer you are using (Actual screen shots will vary depending on your version of windows and printer)

I just had a representative from the Geek Squad set up my Epson WorkForce 633 Fax/Printer/Copier. The time that we set up is not what I wanted. I want a 12 hour set up, and I need to reset the clock on...

Below you will find the instructions straight out of the manual. I have also put a link to the whole searchable HTML manual at the bottom of this post Enter the Date and Time Before setting the date and time, you should select the appropriate Daylight Saving Time setting for your region. This setting lets you easily set the clock one hour ahead or one hour back when the time change takes place. 1. Press the fax.6.7.1.jpg Setup button. 2. Select Printer Setup. You see this screen: fax.6.7.2.jpg 3. Select Daylight Saving Time. 4. Select Summer if your region uses Daylight Saving Time and it's currently in effect. (DST is effective from spring through summer.) Otherwise select Winter to turn off the setting. Note:
When you change the setting from Winter to Summer, the clock is automatically set ahead by one hour. When you change it from Summer to Winter, the clock is set back. The setting is not automatic; you need to change it each season. 5. Select Date/Time. You see this screen: fax.6.7.3.jpg 6. Select the date format. You see this screen: fax.6.7.4.jpg 7. Use the numeric keypad to change the date, then press OK. fax.6.7.5.jpg 8. Select the time format. fax.6.7.6.jpg 9. Use the numeric keypad to change the time, then press OK. 10. Press fax.6.7.7.jpg Back until you return to the home screen. Epson Work Force 633 Manual Hope this helps. Zeppelinx12

Problem code 6E1 canonpx250 printer

Error code E16 indicates that remaining ink is unknown.
It is common problem in refilling the cartridge. To fix this problem you need to deactivate ink level detection function. Follow this procedure: press and hold STOP/RESET button for about 9 seconds or more then release it. Now E16 has disappeared and the printer should work properly. As consequence, ink volume in panel become UNKNOWN. No problem. It will be back to normal condition when you replace the cartridge with new one. good luck !

The same thing happens to me

If the machine is cleaning in the middle of then night, then the clock on the machine is set incorrectly. When the clock is correct, it should clean sometime in the morning/early day (about 9-11 am). You can change the clock setting in (something along the lines of) Menu -> General Settings (the choice at the far bottom in the menu) -> Clock.

Cannot resize task and system tray toolbar

Resizing the task bar and quick launch bar can be frustrating.

- Move your mouse over the top edge of the taskbar until the cursor changes to arrows (vertical).
- While the cursor is an arrow, left-click and drag the top of the taskbar up.

You might also try to turn the clock off and on again.
- Right-click the task bar, then chose properties
- Uncheck "Show clock" (or check to turn it back on)

Hey, it's only the clock. Be glad you don't have BIG problems, right? :)))

Prints continuously

sounds like when it wasn't printing properly, you tried to print several times, not realising that prints which were not printed at the time were being stored to print when the printer was available.


you need to check the print queue, by clicking on the printer icon in the bottom right hand corner of the screen(by the clock)


you should be presented with a list of pending documents, which you can delete or suspend as required.


if the printer icon cannot be found next to the clock you can find it under START>settings>Printers
