Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I have the printer model mentioned above. While attempting to print something, the paper jammed inside the printer. So I removed the paper that jammed and made sure the paper was aligned properly in the tray, but the printer wouldn't print (even after totally powering down and unplugging-then plugging back in and powering back up). Now when I turn the printer on, I see an intermittent green light followed by 7 orange light flashes. The manual says this means the printhead is defective. How can my printhead be defective all of a sudden after 1 peiece of paper got jammed? I also noticed (in the paper feed area) that there was a smooth oval-shaped piece of metal, maybe 1 1/2 by 3/4 inches in size, with a metal peg on the concave side of it. I have to believe this came from the printer, but I could be wrong-- Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
