Blinking green light


Try disconnecting the computer from the printer and shutting it down by removing the power cord and then also shut down the computer for a minute or so and then reboot it and check in "Printers" and see if it has anything waiting to be printed and if so clear out the queue. Flashing green light indicates that the printer is receiving data from the computer and/or printing so you shut it all down and cold reboot to clear out the computer confusion in both the computer and the printer.

Unplug the power cord from the printer. Hold down the red "X" button. Plug the power cord back in while holding down this button. Release the button. Should see flashing red and green lights. Unplug the power cord again. Replug. Should be reset.

I need to know how to reset my printer, I 've cleaned the pads, but nothing... Thank you in advance...


Power down the Canon Pixma IP4300. Once it has shut down, leave it off for a few moments.
Hold down both the "Resume" button and the "Power Button." When the printer begins to restart, release the "Resume" button but continue pressing "Power."
Push in the "Resume" button twice, then let go of both the buttons. In a moment, a green light flashes a few times.
Press the "Resume" button four times once the green flashing has finished.
Push the "Power" button again until the printer shuts down. Wait a few seconds, then press the power button again to restart the device. The Canon Pixma IP4300 will now function properly. for more information http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/printer/67824 hope this helps you.

Won't switch off


Having taken the printer apart to check all connections, etc, I put it all back together but the problem persisted. I eventually solved it by holding down the On/Resume button and then plugging in the power lead. The printer started, I was able to shut it down normally, remove the power lead, then start it up again in the usual way ie. without having to hold down the On/Resume button before plugging in the power lead. I can only assume that some sort of "glitch" occurred when it was originally turned off.

Keeps blinking. I've shut it off, and cancelled all print jobs - even unplugged it. Keeps blinking. Says there is an operator error


Try this:

1. Turn off printer (use button, don't unplug)
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.

If this not help may the print head is defective.

I can't get my HP officejet 6310 All-in-One to turn off


This model takes an extremely long time to shut down.
I have had mine on for 2 years. because it takes way too long to start up and shut down. Still works fine.

If you really really want to power this unit down.
Purchase a strip plug with power buttons for Monitor, CPU, Printer and Device 1 and 2. Shut down the PC normally then hit the Printer button on the strip plug. Viola printer off no worries.

Good luck!

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.

Prints 1st page ok, down hill from there


I would try a cold reset. Turn the printer off; hold down the green "GO" button, continue to hold while you power the printer "ON". Hold the green "GO" button until the printer shows al " ********** " across the screen; now let go. It should soon say " Restoring Factory Settings ".

Printer is shutting down


does start when you hit a button after it has shut down?

If so, change the time setting within menue. (see manual).

If not, it might be that you have a short cirucit on the main board due to a defective part (quite often on machines older than 2.5 years).

Do contact brother hotline of your country.
