Does start when you hit a button after it has shut down?

If so, change the time setting within menue. (see manual).

If not, it might be that you have a short cirucit on the main board due to a defective part (quite often on machines older than 2.5 years).

Do contact brother hotline of your country.

Tried upgrading Canon iPF710 firmware from 1.35 to 1.40 on 2 separate plotters and received a !Error E196-4040 Call for service message. Plotter will not come to a Online status.


Power off and unplug the printer for several minutes. On power on the printer had the same "ERROR E196-4040 Call For Service" after Initialization. Next start the printer in Service Mode, turn on the printer while holding down the [Paper Source/Feeder Selection] button and [Information] button until Initializing appeared in the display. An "S" will appear in the upper right of the version display. Power down and do a normal Power On and the printer should do a normal initialization and came On Line.

HP Photosmart PremiumC 309g-m started a day ago will not print anything even test page. Message says load paper into photo tray. Nothing obvious seems to work, shutting down printer and restarting,...


Unplug the power from the printer.
Press the # key and the 6 at the same time and hold them down
connect the power while continuing to hold down these keys
wait for a message about a semi-nvm reset or something like that to appear on the screen, and then release the buttons. If the unit shuts down while you are pressing the buttons, release them, and press power just long enough to turn the unit on.

If the printer does not react normally after this, post a reply here.

I can't get my HP officejet 6310 All-in-One to turn off


This model takes an extremely long time to shut down.
I have had mine on for 2 years. because it takes way too long to start up and shut down. Still works fine.

If you really really want to power this unit down.
Purchase a strip plug with power buttons for Monitor, CPU, Printer and Device 1 and 2. Shut down the PC normally then hit the Printer button on the strip plug. Viola printer off no worries.

Good luck!

Power light flashing and red light on button 2 will not print


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. There are two step-by-step procedures to resolve the issue—

Procedure 1

  1. Turn off the printer and ensure that the print head is at its home location and locked in place as normal;
  2. Power off the printer at the wall or by removing the power cable for at least 20 seconds;
  3. While you restore power to the printer at the wall socket or by reinserting the cable, if the lights come back on straight away, the printer’s power switch was ‘on’ - switch it off and return to step 1;
  4. Hold down the paper-feed button and the button with the ink-drops next to it, and then turn on the printer, still holding the buttons down;
  5. When the paper-out LED flashes, release the buttons;
  6. Press and hold the Cleaning button, until several lights flash - this will take a few seconds then release the button;
  7. The printer will now attempt to reset, including resetting the EPROM memory and running a short (about 10 seconds) cleaning cycle.

Procedure 2

  1. Turn off the printer and ensure that the print head is at it’s home location and locked in place as normal;
  2. Hold down the paper feed button only;
  3. Turn on the printer;
  4. As the paper feed light starts flashing, release the button;
  5. Immediately hold down the ink-drops button for some 10-20 seconds or until the printer springs into life;
  6. Allow printer to complete its processing then turn it off for a few seconds and turn it again on.

By following the above any one of the step-by-step procedure, the printer will start printing normally.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Printer cycles on/off and displays "improper shut down"


Got the same problem following a message "Printer ink failure" code 0xc19a0035. Instructions say to shut down using button on/off. But printer refused to shutdown. After 30 minutes, I disconnected power cable. Removed cartridges. Reloaded cartridges. Reconnected power cable and got "Improper shutdown" message with continuous cycle. Solution: 1. While the printer is still turned on, unplug all cables and cords at the back of the printer.
2. Unplug the power cord also from the wall outlet...
3. Wait for two minutes.
4. Reconnect power cord to the wall outlet first.
5. Press and hold the pound (#) and six (6) buttons.
6. While holding down the two buttons, reconnect the power cord to the back of the printer and after two seconds, release pound and six buttons.
7. Turn on the printer if it turns off... and it's fixed.

The printer Board B1: you must shut it down by hitting the Options button and then selecting Function >Shut down > Shut down sytem>OK. Then power the machine off with the main switch. If the Customer has not been shutting off the machine properly and you get the please wait message you might try reloading system software first before replacing the hard drive.
Or = remove and reseat the printer board, if that doesn't work then you'll have to reformat the HDD unit and reload system software from a laptop. If the problem remains, the printer board may need to be replaced.

The Color Network Printer Board -B1 has a shut down function. It is for preventing corruption of the HDD. Be sure to turn off the main power switch after performing shutdown.
To properly shut down the Color Network Printer Board -B1:
1. Press the Option key on the control panel if the copier is in copier mode.
2. Make sure that the LCD reads Idle.
3. Select Functions on the LCD.
4. Select Shut Down from the Functions screen.

6. The message 'It is now safe to power off the system' appears on the screen.
7. Power off the main power switch located on the lower right side of the copier.
* Note- After powering off the copier, wait at least five seconds before powering the copier back on.

My dell printer wont turn back


Power down the computer and the printer. Disconnect the printer cable from the computer. Disconnect the power cable on the printer for 30 seconds or so. Without connecting the printer back up to the computer, turn the computer back on as you normally would. It may come back to the screen that asks you if you want to start windows normally or in safe mode. Start windows normally if you do not know how it got to that point. Once windows is started then go back and go through your shutdown procedure and let the computer power down completely. Now reconnect the power to the printer, but not the cable to the computer. The printer should come back on. If it does not come back on standing alone not hooked to your computer then you have a power problem. If it does come back on (powers up). Then turn it back off and reconnect your printer cable back to the computer. Turn the printer back on first, then power your computer back on like before and let it cycle on until you get to your desktop. By this point everything should be on. Let me know how it goes ,but I believe by going through the cycling on and off of both units you'll get back to normal operation. From your posted problem this is the best solution I can give you. God bless.
