Printer blinking red and showing letter E


Error description:

The Attention (red) light is blinking. There are six possible causes that will display the Attention light pattern:

-Paper out
-Door open
-Print cartridge missing
-Paper jam
-Paper sensor jammed
-Duplexer error

Solution :
After the cause of the problem has been addressed, pressing GO will cause the printer to attempt to recover from the cause of the error. If the printer is unsuccessful, it will continue to display the Attention message until the cause is remedied.

Pressing JOB CANCEL will cancel the print job and the printer will return to the Ready state (Ready light on) unless there is a paper jam still in the printer or the print cartridge is not in the printer.

Amber light just keeps flashing on HP2200 printer


This can be a number of problems but mostly caused by a worn paper pickup roller. If you turn the printer off and then back on, does the light come on before any job is sent to it?
If this is the case it could be caused by a dislodged paper sensor, possibly in the fuser area ( rear of printer ) or even the one under the printer at the front near the paper pickup roller.

My printer is not printing..page comes out blank. inside, all the lights are flashing on the ink cartridges...any ideas what's wrong? thanks


this message means that the cartdriges are empty...
if you have bought new cardridges and lights still flash then the printer just dont recognize them right.
possible cause 1:
dirty cartdrige (or printhead) chip contacts > clean them with alcohol and cotton (switch printer off first).
see the chips in this photo:
https://secure.datatekusa.com/images/canon%20PGI5.CLI8%20refillable%20cartridge.jpg

possible cause 2:
bad printer controller: the chip in the printer that communicates with the cartdriges is gone mad... take the printer to service...

all the above are valid assuming you bought original cartdriges if not then do so...

The sections below describe the most common combinations of blinking lights, how to fix the issue, and how the issue is caused. NOTE: The light patterns included in this document are described as blinking or flashing lights. For the purpose of this document, "flashing" means the same as "blinking." Blinking lights Printer lights can can blink for more than one reason, so the solution can vary. These solutions need not be performed in a specific order, but solutions for the most common issues are presented first. Blinking lights are often accompanied by an error message on the computer screen, which might help determine the solution. Issue: Power light is blinking

c00374282.gif Solution

Close the cover.

Cause

Printer cover is open. Solution

Insert appropriate media in the In tray.

Cause

The printer is out of paper. Solution

  • Change the printer's print mode setting.
  • Change the printer's paper type selection.
  • Use a different brand of label media.


Cause

The printer has difficulty picking up label media. Solution

Follow each of these steps until the problem is resolved:

  1. Remove the paper from both paper trays.
  2. Press the power button once. Wait a moment for the paper jam to clear.
  3. If printing labels, verify that a label did not become detached while passing through the printer. If the paper jam was not resolved, continue on to the next steps.
  4. Remove the rear access door.
  5. Remove the paper jam through the opening at the back of the printer.
  6. Replace the rear access door.
  7. Reload the paper into the paper In tray.
  8. Print the document.


Cause

There is a paper jam. Solution

Follow each of these steps until the problem is resolved:

  1. Remove and then reinsert the print cartridge(s) into the printer.
  2. Clean the print cartridges automatically using the Clean Cartridges option in the Printer Assistant.
  3. Manually clean the print cartridges and print cartridge cradles:
    • Open the printer cover and wait until the carriage moves to the center.
    • Press the Power button to turn off the printer.
    • Disconnect power cord from the back of the printer.
    • Remove the print cartridges and place them on a piece of paper with the nozzle plate facing up.
    • Lightly moisten a cotton swab with distilled water.
    • Clean the face and edges of the print cartridges with the swab. Do not touch the print cartridge ink nozzles or copper contacts.
    • Wipe the underside of the print cartridge cradle walls using a clean, moistened swab.
    • Reinsert the print cartridges.
    • Close the printer cover.
    • Connect the power cord to the back of the printer.
    • Press the Power button to turn on the printer.
  4. Calibrate the print cartridges.
  5. If the light is still flashing, replace the print cartridges.


Cause

There is a problem with a print cartridge. Solution

  1. Print a printer self-test by holding the power button down with a pencil and opening and closing the top cover four times.
  2. Check the nozzle self-test pattern in the self-test print out. If one or more of the solid rectangular areas are missing, an electrical contact problem may be present.
  3. Remove and then reinsert the print cartridge(s) into the printer.
  4. Print the document.
  5. If the problem persists, follow the steps listed above for cleaning the print cartridges and print cartridge cradle.
  6. Try printing again. If the problem continues, replace the print cartridges.


Cause

The print cartridge has partial loss of electrical interface with the carriage connections.

Not printing


Yes, this would cause it to not work - try taking out your toner cartridge, shake it lightly a couple of times, and then put it back in. This should work for a short while, until you get a new cartridge

Blinking red error button


Blinking light can be caused by a multitude of problems, but in most cases it is caused by the little white switch that you see when you open the printer lid to install paper. Has to be replaced by a printer technician who can get the part from star micronics. Another cause is bad cutter or paper out switch located under lid at the back of printer in which the paper pushes the switch into the side of the printer. None of these problems can be solved by an end user.
