Hi,

Try this solution.

* Turn your printer off.
* Hold in the circular button on the front panel of your printer.
* Turn your printer back on.
* When the drum light is lit by itself let go of the button.
* Hold in the circular button on the front panel again.
*
Once the Alarm light comes on, let go of the button.
Your printer should now be reset.

Hope this help you.

Stops drains and bleeps with only spin light illuminated


It sounds like you need to re programme the
machine.
With the machine plugged into the wall and
turned on and the headset turned off this is what
you do.
Push and hold down the start button, while doing that you need to then push and hold down the power button.
Hold them down for about 5 seconds, during
which time you may a series of up to 3 beeps.
Then release the buttons.
Turn the machine off and then on again followed by the start button. Allow the machine to then run the complete cycle.
This should correct your problem, if this doesn't then you may need to then look at replacing the computer panels.

RCA RT2250 consistant shutting off in Satalite mode.


Mine will always just turn off every minute or so after a hard shut down(ex: power outtage). I have to turn it back on and then hold the set button for a few seconds, then it stays on, until i turn it off manually, since the remote won't turn it off.
