This is your pre-heat or energy save mode light. It means that the machine is in the energy save mode. This light goes off when you press the print button which will "wake up" the copier and bring it to a ready to copy state. It will remain ready for a minute or 2 after making your last copy then it will return to sleep mode. Sharp had to do this in order for the machine to qualify for the Energy Star rating.
Thank You for using Fixya.

On printer error cod 6A00 displayed, on computer screen icon says service error 5C10. Have cleaned ink wells and wiped off excess ink. After cleaning far right side a long skinny black piece came out,...


Error 5C10 means a paper jam or the printer has encountered an internal error. And error 6A00 is caused due a paper jam in the sheet feed unit or near the print head. You can also reset the printer to resolve this issue. On the printer press and hold the ON/OFF button or unplug the power cord. Wait for 10 seconds, press power button ON/OFF button again. If this doesn't resolve the error code then unplug the printer for 10 minutes. Also, inspect the back panel of the printer for any paper jams. To clear the paper jams---

Turn off the printer and disconnect the power cord and USB cable. Remove the jammed paper slowly using the following procedure. Open the rear cover to check if the paper is jammed. Pull out the cassette and check if the paper is jammed inside the cassette area. Stand the printer with the rear side down, holding the document cover. Press the tabs together and pull the green cover toward you. Check if the paper is jammed. (If you were not doing Duplex printing, you do not have to follow this procedure.) Close the green cover and place the printer back to a normal position. Reconnect the power cord and power on the printer. Confirm the Alarm light is off. Load paper back into the ASF or cassette. Press to clear the message and continue printing. If you are printing from application software, follow the instructions displayed on your computer. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Flashing lights on printer

The iP4300 manual says this for 10 flashes "
The size of paper may not be compatible with automatic duplex printing. The sizes of media suitable for auto duplex printing are A4, Letter, A5, and 5" x 7". Make sure that the size of the paper loaded in the printer is correct. Pressing the RESUME/CANCEL button will eject the paper and restart printing from the front side of the next paper. The reverse side of the ejected sheet will not be printed." Hope this helps

I would seem the quality is set to high instead of normal or draft (even faster). Right-click on the printer in the Printers and Faxes folder and select Properties. Under Printing Preferences you can set the default quality. When printing photos you can override this setting.

Says Photo print but want normal print

On the MP750 (and MP780...) there are 3 small "buttons" on each side of the screen. On the right side, the lowest button controls the movement from plain to glossy to high resolution to photoprint. So, if you are on one of these settings and want to switch, you press this button. Pressing it only once will affect only the paper size, but pressing the button twice will control the resolution. To move among the options use the arrow buttons (left and right) under the menu...then just push the ok button. It worked for me.
