Does your printer use a USB connection? Did you install the printer's driver before connecting the printer to your computer? Was your printer working before?

    I have no idea what a USB connection is.  My son set up the computer and printer for me.  I don't know what the driver is, either.

    I have had my Mac for about a year now and have only recently had problems with the printer.

    You may want to ask your son to uninstall the printer's software and reinstall it. It sounds like a file got corrupted somewhere or maybe a setting got changed.

    You can also try unplugging and then reattaching the cable that connects the printer to the computer. Sometimes this cord becomes a little loose. Is the printer on -- can you see any lights on or flashing?

    the printer worked for two pages, then i got messages that the ink cartridges were not in as well as they should be. pulled them out and put them back in.

    one more copy OK

    now i having the flashing yellow 7 again and the message about the printer not being hooked up correctly

    what's going on if the problem is intermittent?

  • rowleyruth Jul 05, 2010

    btw - my son who installed all this lives 300 miles away so he can't help

  • gggg Jul 05, 2010

    Does the message appear on your computer or on the printer's display? What exactly does it say?

    What do you mean by the "flashing 7"? The number 7 keeps flashing on the printer?

    An intermittent problem like that could be caused by the printer's power pack, but that's very rare. Are the cables that go from the outlet to the printer and from the computer to the printer all pushed in all the way? And are the ink cartridges you're using genuine Canon cartridges?

My HP 7780 always says phone off hook. When I disconnect the phone line for awhile and reinstall it faxes once properly then the phone off hook message reappears.

I use a VOIP line and get the same error msg. Here's what I do- I dial the fax number with the line unplugged (hence no off-hook message), press "start Fax", and as soon as I hear the fax machine "Click" to pickup the line, I put the line in the machine. Works every time!

Epson C88 will not print, is flashing both paper and ink lights

I think you need to reset the counter, you can either take it into a epson service centre & have them reset it, or download a programme online.

you just need to google it, just type in service reset C88 that should do the trick.

My printer won't print. It will only produce blank pages.

Usually that means that the labels are missing from the printer. Turn the printer off. Reload the label stock and restart the computer it is connected to. Then it should work properly.
