I have an HP Officejet 4500 g510 - how do you turn off the power save mode? Thanks,


Called Hp, they said it is a firmware problem and they would notify me when they solved it. All I do is unplug and then plug it back in. If that don't work, make sure you have a phone line plugged in you're printer and pretend to make a phone call, this will "wake up" the printer, it will say "phone off hook". Then on the keypad of the printer push the star and pound buttons at the same time, then enter 1, 2, and 4. Scroll thru until you see "system menu" then push the OK button and find "system mode timeout" push OK then enter 1800 and push OK. Push OK again to make sure. That is the dafault setting for this printer. After doing all that you're printer will go to power save mode after 30 minutes sitting idle but it should pop right back to normal by pushing the power button once or sending a print command from you're computer. At least that's what I did and now it seems to come out of power save mode when it's supposed to....gary

Printer cycles on/off and displays "improper shut down"


Got the same problem following a message "Printer ink failure" code 0xc19a0035. Instructions say to shut down using button on/off. But printer refused to shutdown. After 30 minutes, I disconnected power cable. Removed cartridges. Reloaded cartridges. Reconnected power cable and got "Improper shutdown" message with continuous cycle. Solution: 1. While the printer is still turned on, unplug all cables and cords at the back of the printer.
2. Unplug the power cord also from the wall outlet...
3. Wait for two minutes.
4. Reconnect power cord to the wall outlet first.
5. Press and hold the pound (#) and six (6) buttons.
6. While holding down the two buttons, reconnect the power cord to the back of the printer and after two seconds, release pound and six buttons.
7. Turn on the printer if it turns off... and it's fixed.

Cannon printer quit working suddenly.


Is it possible that the cord came unplugged from the transformer itself instead of the printer or wall plug?
A power outage shouldn't affect it, but a power surge can. Please use surge protection circuits on your computer equipment. It's so much cheaper than repairing or replacing them.
Take it from someone who learned the hard way....
You can try a printer reset. Turn the printer off, unplug the power and data cables from the machine. Wait at least ten minutes to allow the printer cache to be purged.(Canon's recommendation)
Then plug back in and turn on.
I hope this works for you! Good luck!

HL-1250 shuts down by itself


Sounds as if this is an overheat or a short circuit. you may require a new laser engine or power supply. Disconnect the laser motor from the power supply and them turn it on. If your led's stay on, it's the laser engine. If not, it's the power supply.

My Epson 777 error light continues to flash after replacing the indicated black ink. What should I do to eliminate this flashing?


Make sure you are using original cartridges or a good compatible. If all error lights blinks, the printer needs to be cleaned. Inside the printer there's a ink tank where all the ink extracted from the cartridges during the cleaning cycle goes. That tank needs to be replaced. A service center can do the work, if you want to do it by yourself check the "epsonianos" yahoo group for further advice.
