I am asking this question for my son. His power went out and now his printer when you turn it on blinks blue and will do nothing else. Is there something we can do?


It seems there is a possibility of a problem with the printer itself, or perhaps the cartridges. You should first self-test the printer, using the instructions below. (Since we are unsure where the problem exists, we must do eliminative troubleshooting to rule out parts of the printing system. The self-test allows us to rule out software and the cable by testing the hardware by itself. Please note that this is not a "fix," but rather a diagnostic test to determine if your hardware is at fault.)
First, please disconnect and then reconnect the power supply on the printer and make sure it makes a setup noise when the cable is reattached. Will the printer perform a form feed with paper loaded when the gray button is pressed? If not, you can stop here and write back to let us know and we can give you further instructions. It's most likely, however, that the power-on and form-feed will work fine.
Next, try this printer self-test by following the steps given below:
1. Press the "Menu" button to escape "Photo Mode."
2. Press the "Down Arrow" until the screen shows "Print Test Page."
3. Press the "Select" button to print the Test Page.
4. The test is not continuous.
The self-test should at least print out a set of either black or color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously).
Should this test fail, remove both cartridges and try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, you may have a paper jam, or the printer may require service.
Remove the paper from the printer and check for any obstacles (pens, thumbtacks, paper clips, etc.) or other obstructions. If you don't see any, disconnect the cables from the printer, turn it upside down and gently shake it to see if anything falls out. (Be careful to hold the cover shut during this procedure, and don't look up into the printer while you're shaking it.) In the event nothing comes out of the printer, you may require service to the printer. Stop here and let us know if this is the case, and we can provide you with further instructions.
If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with the color cartridge installed. (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed.) If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let us know.
If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, please let us know. This includes any print quality issues, we need to know if the problems you have with your black or color are based in the printer, or communications with your computer, or the computer's software.
If the self-test prints your test bar(s) clearly, the printer hardware is not at fault.

However, you may have to clear the NVRAM to resolve this issue. Please follow the steps given below:
1. Press the "Menu" button to escape "Photo Mode."
2. Press the "Down Arrow" until the screen shows "Print Test Page."
3. Press the "Up-Arrow" and "Menu" Buttons at the same time.
4. Press the down arrow until the LCD displays "Clean NVRAM."
5. Press "Select" The LCD should display "Success" or "Failed"

My X8350 stopped working this week. I have power


HI,
Please follow the instructions given below to know exactly when the light is blinking:
1. Disconnect the USB cable and the printer power cable.
2. Please disconnect the power supply from the back of the printer.
3. Then remove the cartridges from the printer.
4. Please reconnect the power supply back and turn on the printer.
5. If lights are blinking then printer encoder strip is most likely the problem. Unplug the
power from the printer. Open the front cover and move the cartridge carrier to the center.
You should see a white ribbon cable, a thin plastic strip and a black belt with teeth.
6. The thin plastic strip is the encoder strip. It rides in a sensor on the back of the
cartridge carrier that you will not be able to see. Reach in with the first finger of
either hand and carefully strum the strip as if playing a guitar.
7. The strip will need to be lowered slightly and brought towards you slightly. Please be
careful not to break the strip or your printer will not function. Once you believe the
strip is set correctly, plug the power back and let us know if the lights are still
blinking.
8. If you cannot repair the strip, please let us know so that we can assist you further.
Please Note: Fixing the encoder strip is a delicate procedure. During the troubleshooting,
if the strip breaks, you will not be able to use the printer. We will replace the printer,
only if it is under warranty.
9. However, if lights are not blinking then try inserting one cartridge at a time and check
if you can see any lights blinking. If light blinks with one cartridge then that cartridge
is defective.
Next, lets try to print the self test.
Begin by disconnecting the power supply from the wall (not the back of the printer) for at
least "30 seconds." This is essential. Then plug the printer back in and follow these
steps:
1. Press the "Copy" button.
2. Press the "Menu" button.
3. Press the down arrow button once or until the screen displays "Maintenance."
4. Press the check mark button to select the "Maintenance" menu.
5. Press the down arrow button three times until the screen displays "Print Test Page."
6. Press the check mark button to select this. The Self-Test will start printing.
The self-test should at least print out a set of either black or color bars, if not both
(if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously.) Should this
test fail, try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take
paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware
issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any
cartridges installed, run the self-test again with the color cartridge installed. (If you
have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the
black cartridge installed.) If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail,
please let me know.

Printer will not print from file


The spooled files are not getting to the printer, do the following in sequence:

Start checking usb cable, test it by using a different one.

Check that no device close to usb can create an electromagnetic disturbance, a power adapter can do this.

Disconnect printer from power, Computer from power (unplug cables form power outlet) and printer from computer for 10 minutes (this will reset printer and get rid of electrostatic charges on PC usb).
Connect everything back and try.

If none of the above worked disconnect printer from usb,
remove printer from 'installed printers' in Windows (or whatever OS you are using)
Reinstall driver from printer disk (printer must remain unplugged).
Plug back printer only when required from printer software or after driver setup.

If it still does not work it may be a problem with heads, Alps are quite peculiar printers, in this case you will need to find a servicemen in your area.

2610 won't print


By self-test, I assume you are doing that manually on the printer. drivers downloaded/installed? right click on my computer, left click on properties, click on hardware, and then click on device manager. is there a yellow question mark by print drivers? If so, then need to load them from the internet or from your installation disk.

Alps MD 1000 self tests okay, but printing gives "nonvolatile error" (fast blink)


This is a symptom of the following:

You are running XP, and have installed SP3 and, you are using the microsoft driver bundled with XP.

The solution:

The m$ driver will have created a printer with "(MS)" as a suffix. Leave this intact, as it will cause major trouble on every reboot if you delete it.
Download the appropriate driver from the Files section in the Alps YahooGroup found at http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/Alps/
With your printer unplugged, install the downloaded driver
Shut down your computer and hook up the printer
Reboot
XP will detect the printer, and create a new printer in Control Panel without the "(MS)" suffix
Make the new printer your default printer.

The reason why you do not delete the printer with the "(MS)" suffix, is because every time you reboot, XP will ignore the fact that you have the correct Alps driver loaded, and will create a new printer using the m$ drivers, and set it to default. Of course, the m$ Alps driver is fundamentally broken
