My printer is printing but i cant scan my documents - no compatible printer installed


Make sure the Lexmark OCR scan software (used to scan documents, convert into PDF file or create multiple pages into 1 file). The software is available on the installation disc that came with the printer.

A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to scan a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

My hp jeskjet 1560 is not working because the green light is blinking when i am on my printer it is continue blinking.pls.... some one help me


Your printer is keeps on blinking maybe because theirs a lot of pending documents pending in queue. Please follow these instructions on how to clear it.
Please check the following before you go and proceed to the troubleshooting:
  • Make sure that the computer is on.
  • Make sure that the USB cable is connected to both device (your printer & computer)
  • Close any open applications on your computer. (Microsoft word, power point excel & etc.,)
Solution #1 Clear the print jobs
  1. Download the "HP print diagnostic utility" click here to download.
  2. After downloading the tool, (print diagnostic utility) save it to your computer.
  3. Run the tool, then select the printer that your using, then start scanning the problems on the printer.
  4. It will tells you if theirs a problem with the connectivity, ports, print jobs stuck in queue and etc.,
  5. If the problem appears, theirs should be a "Fix" button available or "uninstall the driver".
  6. If theirs a fix button, clink on it to fix the issue, now if its telling you to uninstall the driver.
  7. Restart the computer, then if you have to computer boot up and running again. Install the driver for the printer. To get the latest driver that suites to your computer click here.
  8. It will ask you to select your operating system, (win xp, vista or 7) then click on next. Now it will ask you what software do you wish to download, click on "Drivers" then look for "HP Deskjet full feature software and drivers" click on it.
  9. Download the software and save it.
  10. Run the software and install it.

If you have the printer working, you don't need to troubleshoot further. If you are still having problem, continue to the next solution. Solution #2 Power cycle both devices (printer and computer)
  1. Turn off the printer by pressing the power button
  2. Unplug or disconnect the power chord at the back of the printer.
  3. Completely shut down your computer.
  4. Wait for 1min.
  5. Plug the power cable back in to the printer, then turn it on.
  6. Try to print something on your computer. It should be working fine now.

If your still having same issue, you now need to service the printer. contact HP's printer support department to have your printer trade in @ 1-800-474-6836.
Good Luck :)

When did this start happening?
After a long time not being used, the ink dryes and clogs the heads. Try cleaning the heads and install a new ink cartridge. Run any fresh install that is issued with the printer.

My printer is canon pixma ip 1980, its orange light is blinking 7 times, it says the cartridge is not installed properly (but i did not even touch the cartridge), how can fix the problem? pls help, i need...


Remove the cartridges, clean the contact points and heads using a soft brush (you can clean them using the brush dipped in alcohol or acetone or spirit). Reinstall them and switch on the printer. If the problem persists, try with another cartridge/s, it's also possible that one of the cartridge/s is/are bad and no longer usable. In that case, you'll need to replace it/them.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Flashing on/off light on hp deskjet 3520 printer


Introduction The printer lights indicate the printer status. These lights can be on, off, or blinking (flashing), depending on the status of the printer. The sections below describe the most common combinations of blinking lights, how to fix the issue, and how the issue is caused. NOTE: The light patterns included in this document are described as blinking or flashing lights. For the purpose of this document, "flashing" means the same as "blinking." Blinking lights Printer lights can can blink for more than one reason, so the solution can vary. These solutions need not be performed in a specific order, but solutions for the most common issues are presented first. Blinking lights are often accompanied by an error message on the computer screen, which might help determine the solution. Issue: Power light is blinking

c00374282.gif Solution

Close the cover.

Cause

Printer cover is open. Solution

Insert appropriate media in the In tray.

Cause

The printer is out of paper. Solution

  • Change the printer's print mode setting.
  • Change the printer's paper type selection.
  • Use a different brand of label media.


Cause

The printer has difficulty picking up label media. Solution

Follow each of these steps until the problem is resolved:

  1. Remove the paper from both paper trays.
  2. Press the power button once. Wait a moment for the paper jam to clear.
  3. If printing labels, verify that a label did not become detached while passing through the printer. If the paper jam was not resolved, continue on to the next steps.
  4. Remove the rear access door.
  5. Remove the paper jam through the opening at the back of the printer.
  6. Replace the rear access door.
  7. Reload the paper into the paper In tray.
  8. Print the document.


Cause

There is a paper jam. Solution

Follow each of these steps until the problem is resolved:

  1. Remove and then reinsert the print cartridge(s) into the printer.

The printer apear to be dead!


Buttons and lights on the printer Two buttons and three lights are located on the front of an HP Deskjet printer.
  • The lights tell when the printer is working or when it needs attention.
  • The buttons help control the printer.
Buttons and lights Purpose c00123886.jpg POWER button and light Push the POWER button to turn the printer off and on. When lit, the light shows that the printer is turned on. c00123889.jpg RESUME button and light The light blinks when there is a problem with paper. When the problem is corrected, press the button. c00123892.jpg Print cartridge light The light blinks when there is a problem with a print cartridge. When the problem is corrected and the top cover is closed, the light will stop blinking. Troubleshooting blinking printer lights Blinking lights Reason c00123895.jpg

All lights are off. The printer is off (asleep).

Press the POWER buttonc00123886.jpg to turn the printer on.

The printer should turn on automatically when a print job is sent to it. c00123898.jpg

The POWER (top) light is on. The printer is idle.

The printer is ready to print a document. c00123900.jpg

The POWER (top) light is blinking. The printer is busy printing.

Allow enough time to print. When a document has many fonts or graphics or uses complex color such as a color photo, it takes longer to begin printing. c00123902.jpg

The PRINT CARTRIDGE (bottom) light is blinking. Possible causes:

  • The front cover is open. Make sure the front cover is completely closed.
  • The print cartridge is missing. Make sure the print cartridge has been installed correctly.
  • The print cartridge is broken or incompatible. Lift the front cover, and wait for the print-cartridge cradle to slide out. Check the part numbers on the print cartridge:


Black: 51645A

Color: C1823D,

If the print cartridges are compatible and correctly installed, they may be defective. Try replacing the print cartridges.

If none of the above suggestions fix the problem, and, if the error message still occurs, it may be a hardware failure. Call the HP Customer Support Center.
