Printer stops when printing should begin with red light in status


There is a few reasons that cause the status light to turn red, paper jam, paper empty, toner cartridge empty, cover open and waste toner cartridge full. The PC Smart panel utility should give you an exact fault condition. Hope this helps.

NO PAPER FEED


This is a design flaw with this printer. Try stretching and/or replacing the two coiled compression springs under the output flap of the paper tray. This should work for a few weeks, then you'll have to repeat the process. I stocked up on a few pairs of springs at Ace Hardware.

It's a shame, because the print quality on this printer is superb, considering the price, but dealing with this issue is a real pain. I've replaced the springs 3 or 4 times, and I haven't even used up one toner cartridge yet. I'm on the lookout for a replacement low cost color printer. I would never buy a Samsung printer again.

Red light on steady


If the ink light is on steady red, that means the black or color ink cartridge is nearly empty. Obtain a replacement black or color ink cartridge. To know which cartridge is out of ink, check the ink levels using EPSON Status Monitor 3 (Windows) or EPSON Status Monitor (Macintosh). If you just replaced the cartridges before you got the error light, that means that the replacement cartridge is not recognized by your printer. Please reseat cartridges. Then turn the printer on and off. The cartridges maybe bad also.
If the paper light is on steady red, try to reload 10-20 sheets of regular paper into your printer. When printing on CD/DVD, CD/DVD tray is not inserted in the printer. Insert the CD/DVD tray in the printer and press the paper button.Could also be that the printer has loaded more than one sheet of paper at a time. Load paper in the sheet feeder, and then press the paper button to resume printing. If the CD/DVD guide is open, close the CD/DVD guide, load paper and then press the paper button.

Brother HL-5140 red status light on


RED status light means that there is a possibility that the internal circuit might have got damaged (cracked to be exact). This would require a professional to fix the problem. So, the best thing to do would be to call Borther techsupport because they will instruct you specifically on what to do and what needs to be replaced (also you may need to consult the device's warranty status)

hope this helps, good luck on this one.

Xerox Phaser 6110 - what does continuous red light mean ?


Lemmor, without being rude it sounds like you know nothing about this machine at all.
The printer version of this machine has 5 lights in total. 4 of them refer to the toner carts (flashing means toner low, on solid means run out) the other light (the status light) can mean many things. The most common problem people overlook with red status light is that the waste toner bottle is full and needs replacing. It can mean lots of other things depending what colour it is and whether it is flashing or not. These can all be found in the user manual, or if the status monitor has been installed (usb connection) it should show on the PC screen. With a network install, you can browse to the machine using it's IP address to see the error message.

Help please. can't print: paper light flashing even though there is paper in printer


To fix the NON EXISTANT paper jam:

Status light is on, paper light is on - you can hear the paper feed trying to "grab" the paper, but it can't,  and status light goes Red.

Take out paper tray

Reset the blue paper holders, move them tight against the paper so the paper is snug against all blue barriers. Cause: Somehow the blue paper holders got dislodged and the paper is not snug so the feeder is trying to grab paper that  is slightly out of reach.
