  • I take it you are refilling the toner cartridge...
  • Switch the printer off.
  • Press and hold the green button on your printer and turn the printer on. You will see that the lights flash for a moment and then turn off. After a few seconds, the attention light will turn on followed by ready light and the green light. Keep pressing the green button. In a few seconds, the attention light and the ready light will turn off.
  • Push the toner rotate button while you continue pressing the green button. As you briefly push the toner button, you will see the light flashing. Release both the toner button and the green button.
  • Repeatedly push the red button (cancel button). Now all the working lights on the printer will turn off.
  • Open and close the lid of HP printer once. The light will start blinking.
  • Press the green button. Your HP toner cartridge chip will be reset.

    My epson tx700 printer dispaly ink pad at end of life and printer not start


    A fix from a forum:

    Procedure 1 We found this procedure to work for the Stylus Photo 1270 type printer, and understand that it also works for the 870 range and even earlier models like the Stylus Color 740. The error is indicated on these printers by all four lights on the printer flashing. Even if you press the power switch on the printer, the lights continue to flash, and the printer does not turn off!
    1. Turn off your printer, ensuring that the print head is at it's 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. When 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 (i.e. then release the button);
    7. The printer will now attempt to reset, including resetting the EEPROM memory and running a short (about 10 seconds) cleaning cycle.
    Procedure 2
    1. Turn off your printer, ensuring 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 it's processing, then turn off for a few seconds, and back on again for a newly working printer!
    Procedure 3 - for 1290 and possibly 890 printers 1290 printer with green (power / data) and red (ink / paper feed) lights flashing alternately:
    1. Switch off printer with panel switch;
    2. Switch off printer at mains switch - leave off for 20+ seconds;
    3. Hold down roll feed and sheet feed buttons;
    4. Switch on at mains;
    5. Switch on at printer panel;
    6. Continue to hold down roll and sheet feed buttons until both green and red lights flash together in synchronisation, not alternately;
    7. Switch printer off and then, after a few seconds, on again at mains switch;
    8. When red and green lights are both flashing in synchronisation, release the roll and sheet feed buttons;
    9. Press and hold down the ROLL FEED button (the one at the extreme left) and keep it down until the machine finishes whirring, cleaning etc and the green light comes on steady;
    10. Release the roll feed button and all should be well.

    Our lexmark e234 printer has all lights flashing. Last job was 30 page document which printed out fine, then all lights started flashing. We have not been able to print since. Thank you:)


    Hi,
    Try resetting the printer to factory Defaults. First turn off the printer, then open the front cover like if you were to take the toner cartridge out. Once the front cover is open then push and hold the two buttons on the panel of the printer and turn the printer on. Make sure the front cover is open and that you are pushing the two buttons all the lights will flash and they will stop at the very bottom light and stay solid once that happens let go of the buttons and close the cover and that should reset the printer.
