Please check if the print cartridge are installed properly or not. Please try take out the cartridges and then put then in again in the printer. Also check if the cartridge is not dry.

Print is very light even after replacing ribbon.


My first thought is that the numbers being "hammered" against the paper are not reaching far enough. Test this theory by putting two layers of paper into the paper feed, (Fold the end of the roll over onto itself) and try printing again. It could be designed for a thicker paper.
Alternatively the new ribbon may also have dried out. Rub the ink ribbon with a paper, or pencil eraser and see if the ink readily comes off, perhaps use a pencil eraser to press it against the paper being fed through the machine.

These are diagnostics to find the error. Further investigation might be to see if there is any particles in the machine preventing it from hammering the numbers against the paper. Something might be in the way of the moving parts, something about the size of a paper hole punch paper, or pencil shaving. Shaking it vigorously upside down might solve this problem.

Good luck ;)

HP LaserJet 4L quit working It's connected to my PC and it's on. All 4 lights are on; 2 green and 2 orange. When I try to print, the paper goes through but nothing is printed on the paper.


Empty cartridge maybe?
Otherwise it's simple: selt-test page(by printer button) printed ok - it's outer problem. Self-page is blank - it's inner problem. And so on... use Golden Section method

RX700 not printing anything


After two years of no use the ink is most likely dried up and plugging the print head, try this first before you replace the cartridges, soak the print head of all cart's. in hot water for 10 minutes and wipe dry, then try again, if that doesn't work you will need to try need cart's, buy reman ones they are cheap and if the printer is defective you won't be out so much money. I advise you based on my experiences that buying a used printer is risky, a new one is so cheap it is just not worth the risk of getting a DOA used printer. The last printer I bought came with a rebate for the entire price of the printer, and it is a Canon not a no name.

Red light stays on, but nothing moving after clearing paper jam


About the last post, I must also add that the main clue that led me to that conclusion, was the fact that, when I first turned the printer on, THE FAN BEGAN to rotate. Hence, I thought, all the other aspects were right, but somewhere there might be a mechanical "jamming" that stops either the fan or other part to move and obstacles the cylinders or gears from moving, hence sending the printer a signal of jamming. I had looked for the "messages" from the printer, and the diagnosis for our problem (red light in the online error, and green light in Toner Save) was that either there was no ink or no cartridge, no paper, or paper jamming (please post if there was other cause for this diagnosis). I discarded the other grounds, so the unique left was that the printer thought was that there was a paper jamming. This lead to the fix I described in my previous post.

Canon ir2200: data light comes on, nothing prints We have a Canon ir2200 installed as a local printer; no test page will print nor will a page sent from a program print, although the data light comes on,...


I would first try to see that your paper trays are set correctly. Meanning that the paper size are set to the same paper size in the tray. The knobs that input the paper size Magicly they move. Also, make sure that you clear out all the print jobs in the print "Q". Some body may have a odd paper size tring to print. Also, has anyone chaged anything on your network or the setting in the copier?

Messy prints


not a solution but i have the same problem, found that buying bottles of fuser oil and adding it regularly to orange foam rollers found under fuser oil unit helps although 1st page printed will be covered in oil. also i have cut holes in top of fuser oil unit so can keep a high level of oil. i have 5 of these printers all with the same problem.in my search for a solution came across this, rings true to me. http://www.dec.com/sbso/expert/competitive_ricoh_reliability.html

R1800 printer problem


I fixed the problem, the PW and Ink Mark sensors needed cleaning. I was able to access and remove both sensors after removing the printer housing, and moving the print head to the far left. There's enough space to unscrew the cover for the sensors, and unplug them with needle nose pliers and a couple fingers, clean them both, dry them, re-install, etc.. all is well now after some re-alignment procedures with the epson factory service program.

Nothing prints on the paper for incoming faxes or copying a document.


i suspect you are correct in cleaning the unit.inkjets if not used often enough the ink will clog the print head. usually the easiest solution is to keep cleaning unit it works again. other wise to clean the print head manually requires the unit to be completely dissambled. it takes a long time to fix it this way. or if replacement costs are acceptable you can replace it. i would just give it a dozen or so more cleanings.
