How to remove the ink cartridges?


r_1.gif Make sure that the printer is on. The fontp.gif power light should be on, but not flashing. r_2.gif Open the printer cover. r_3.gif Press the fontb1.gif maintenance button. The print head moves to the black or color ink cartridge replacement position, the fontp.gif power light begins to flash, and the fontb1.gif error light begins to flash or remains on. When both cartridges are out of ink, the print head moves to the black ink cartridge replacement position first. After replacing the black cartridge, press the fontb1.gif maintenance button again to switch to the color cartridge replacement position. 98a04.gif r_4.gif Lift up the ink cartridge clamp as far as it will go. The cartridge rises partly out of the cartridge holder. Lift the cartridge out of the printer and dispose of it properly. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it. 98a05.gif r_5.gif Remove the new ink cartridge from its protective bag. Next, remove only the yellow tape seal from the cartridge. Do not touch the green IC chip on the side of the cartridge. 98a06.gif r_6.gif Place the ink cartridge into the ink cartridge holder, and then close the ink cartridge clamps. Do not apply excessive force to the cartridge. 98a07.gif r_7.gif Close the printer cover. r_8.gif Press the fontb1.gif maintenance button. The printer moves the print head and begins charging the ink delivery system. This process takes about thirty seconds to complete. When the ink charging process is finished, the printer returns the print head to its home position, the fontp.gif power light stops flashing and remains on, and the fontb1.gif error light goes out. 98a08.gif If you feel that my answer helped you then please give a vote for my answer.

1.The light is flashing which aprantly means that its 'processing' 2.I try to print then half way though it stops and says error printing 3.the printer says its offline


hello


when it is flashing means its reading or communicating the printer with the computer, no problem with the computer or printer, check the cable of your printer it might be loose or the the data sent by the computer to the printer is not suffiecient.

The exclamation sign flashes and then the green light but no printing


The service Manual says that if both the ready (Bulb) light and the exclamation light are both on it is a invalid engine
code /Invalid network code. But to clarify that you say they are both on and solid and not blinking. If they are you have a bad main board.
If they are blinking then the error is a Flushing /Resolution reduced error.
The cause is:
Printer is processing data or printing pages,but the resolution of a page in the current print job is reduced from 600 dots per inch (dpi) to 300 dpi to prevent a memory full error.
Solution is:
Wait until the ready light is displayed to print other jobs.
• Press and release the triangle button to cancel print job. It is the lower of the two buttons.
• Press and hold the traiangle button again to reset printer.
Hope this helps

There are actually some certain meaning on the red light and green light showing different information to user. The summaries are:
1) Green On, Red Off = Printer Ready.
2) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Fast-Flashing = Printer warm up.
3) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Off = Printer off-line.
4) Green Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Processing Data.
5) Green Off, Red On = Cover Opened, Toner Empty or Developer Unit / Drum unit missing.
6) Green Off, Red Fast-Flashing = Paper Jam or waiting for jam reset.
7) Green Off, Red Slow-Flashing = Paper Empty or Paper tray is not inserted.
8) Green Off, Red Off = Printer power is off.
9) Green Very-Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Printer in sleep mode.
10) Green (any condition above), Red Slow-Flashing = Toner low or paper empty.

So what is your printer condition? Better know what is going on your printer so can solve the problem.
