GET BLINKING GREEN LIGHT TO STOP AND PAPER TO FEED?


The green light should be blinking it is an indicator of power to the terminal.
if you have a printing problem let's first check how you are loading the paper. if you scratch the paper with your fingernail you should get a faint black line. the side of the paper that has the line should be placed in the palm of your hand. (facing down) if you take your hand to the opening of the terminal. and let the paper roll off your fingers into the terminal the side with the line should be down and you should be able to grab the beginning of the paper and pull about 2 inches past the opening of the paper load tray. then close the lid. making sure the roller on the lid is lightly touching the paper. do not feed the paper through anything it sits in paper load tray. there should be 1 roller- black in color that is the length of the paper and it should have a sprog (spindle) type wheel that has grooves that will push or pull another sprog to move the paper.

if you don't have one sprog and roller on the door you need to get a replacement door.
if you do have those close the door and press the 2nd purple key to your right. this is a reprint button, see if something prints.
if it is still not printing. make sure the paper is the correct size.

Wps light blinking


CALL YOUR ISP FIRST.
wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is a standard for easy and secure wireless network set up and connections. Some of NETGEAR's products use the name Push 'n' Connect for WPS. To use WPS, your product must support WPS and be compatible with WPA security. WPS can automatically set up a random network name (SSID) and strong WPA wireless security for wireless routers, access points, computers, adapters, Wi-Fi phones, and other electronic devices. WPS lets you use a push button or enter a personal identification number (PIN) instead of manually entering a network name (SSID) and password:
  • Push button. The WPS button is either on the product or a clickable button on a wizard or utility screen.

My at&t Motorola 3360 has every light blinking but is still working. The Power and DSL are continuously blinking red and the ethernet, internet and activity are all blinking green.


Hi,

Here's the thing...if the modem is unplugged, and you press the "Reset" button, or any button, nothing will happen because the modem is UNPLUGGED.

When you plug it in again, there is usually a few minutes or so during which time the lights will blink. Eventually, when the DSL connection is established, the blinking should decrease. But, there will always be some blinking going on to indicate that data is being transmitted.

If the "Ethernet" light is blinking, then a computer that is plugged into the router is transmitting/receiving data. If the "Wireless" light is blinking, then a computer that using a wireless connection to the router is transmitting/receiving data.

If a red light blinks, then that usually means the DSL connection has been broken. When that happens, for whatever reason, the modem will automatically begin its initialization routine and will continue to do so until connection has been established. During that time, LEAVE IT ALONE.

If you uplug the device, or if you press ANY button while the device is attempting to correct itself, you can cause permanent damage.

So, you are correct. It's not a problem. I'm sure you've heard the phrase "If it's not broken, then don't fix it." There's a lot of truth to that.

I hope this helps.
Randy

When I first started using this modem, it worked great and easily worked well with my Belkin router. One day when I came home, the modem was only flashing the "power" light was flashing and I had...


Flashing power light on Router is sign of hardware failure As mentioned, you have already reset the router
You can try to hard reset the router one more time
Follow this procedure
1. Press the reset button with some paper clip 2. Wait for 10 Secs 3. Turn of Power to the router (While Reset button is still pressed) 4. Wait for 10 secs 5. Power on router 6. Wait for 10 secs and then release the Reset button
While doing this make sure reset button is pressed continuously start from Step 1 - 6
Check if Power light still blinks
If No - you can setup router like before and it will work If yes - Buy a new router or get it replaced if under warranty
