I suspect that the reason that there is no communication between your laptop and printer is because the printer will not switch online. This is further confirmed by one of the flashing lights. This is a standard feature if the built-in diagnostics of most current printers tells it that something is wrong.
Since as you posted/described "I've just put in all new inks and now..." was when the problem started, pls verify: 1. the ink cartridges are seated properly at their assigned slots; 2. most ink cartridges when new have a sticker cover of some sort to protect the electronic/contact pins. Pls verify that they were removed; 3. the cover/panel doors are securely lock in place; 4. verify that the USB cable/connectors are attached; 5. you have installed the correct model of ink cartridges, they are original and not generic/replacements/refills; 6. all others are where they should be, paper in tray, slides extended and nothing out of the ordinary;
If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, pls post back with the brand and model of your printer. it might be of further help if you can post your laptop's brand & model as well as the operating system.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Norma930, Try cleaning the Print Head (a function you should find within your printers properties). Don't do it if you have already done so since replacing the cartridge as the process uses quite a bit of ink. Good luck.
Hi The waste ink take is actually just a felt pad that sits under the printer mechanism inside the case and absorbs the ink from your cleanings
Try this: 1 Power off printer 2 Hold RESUME button then press and hold POWER. (The beeper MAY sound once, or may not depending on your model.) 3 Hold POWER and Release RESUME. 4 Press RESUME twice then release both POWER and RESUME buttons. 5 When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME 4 times (for the S900, 3 times for the 8200 apparently). 6 Press power to set data. 7 Print away!
may be "waste pad full" error
4 step to Reset waste ink tank counter CANON PIXMA iP 1500 STEP 1:- Disconnect printer from AC power STEP 2:- Press and HOLD the POWER button, and connect printer to AC power STEP 3:- release the the POWER button STEP 4:- Press the POWER button again
Just to confirm pls: 1. the new print cartridges are original HP inks; 2. you have remove the bright pink tape from the ink cartridges; 3. the black is on the right side and the color is on the left side.
You can try removing both cartridges and clean the gold colored contacts where the pink tape was. Pls do the same to the mate pins in the cartridge holder in the printer.
Try again. If this does not be corrective, you may need to change inks again.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Lift the right black rectangular paper sensor (located in the middle of the printer just below cartridge slides) clean it up, try with vacum cleaner first if it does not help use coton swabs and clean it.
