I can not get my printer to work it has all lights blinking


It indicates Fuser Malfunction.When any of the following error is indicated, turn the printer Off, wait 5 seconds and then turn the printer On again.

If the alarm continues, perform a Factory Reset:
  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Hold in the circular button on the front panel of the printer.
  3. Turn the printer back on.
  4. When the DRUM light is lit by itself let go of the button.
  5. Hold in the circular button on the front panel again.
  6. Once the Alarm light comes on, let go of the button.
  7. This has performed a factory reset on the printer.

Hello, my Canon i1600 continues to flash on & off & won't re-set when I press Resume. I thought it was the waste absorber full problem & have tried to clear it by pressing the Start button then...

Clearing printer
Turn off your computer and completely shut down.
Turn off your printer.
Disconnect all cables and electrical cords from your printer.
Make sure the electrical cord is also removed from the wall.
Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the power cord to the printer.
Then connect the printer cable from the computer to the printer.
Turn on your printer
Now reboot your computer (cold boot)
Your printer should now clear itself.

All the lights are flashing including the blue power button light. What does it mean. I tired holding the blue power button down but that did not work. Please help.

This indicates a Service Call Error. Turn printer OFF, wait a few
seconds and then the printer ON. If the alarm continues, perform a
factory reset:
1. Turn the printer OFF.

2. Check that the front cover is closed.

3. Turn ON the power switch while holding down the GO button.

4. Check the Toner/Drum/Paper LED#s are lit.

5. Release the GO button and check that all LED#s are off.

6. Press the GO button eight times.

7. The printer settings will be reset to factory default.

8. The printer will then initialize and return to Ready status.

If the problem continues and the printer has a one year limited exchange
warranty. If the printer is in warranty, call Brother Customer Service at 1-877-Brother (1-877-276-8437) for warranty options.

If the printer is out of warranty, contact a Brother Authorized Service
Center for repair by clicking on the link below:
