    I have put in new color cartridges. Can not print anything at all. I always get the signal ERR and 1ERC. There are no jobs to print. Please help and also show me how to obtain a manual for the Epson 825. Thanks so much.

    Printer began printing multiple copies when only one was requested. Switched printer off to stop the printing. Now error light won't go off and the printer will not print anything.

    Same problem as the first post her... Blinking error light after stopping a print job in the middle, then clearing it, now error light won't stop blinking...

    I halted a print job and now the error light won't stop blinking. Restarted multiple times and nothing.

    First of all, I don't know why my problem was posted under Brother HL-2140, that is NOT where I posted it. The problem I'm having with the error light that won't stop blinking is with a Konica-Minolta Magicolor 2400w and coutomelissa's suggestion was no help at all; there is no paper stuck anywhere in the paper path at all. I'm still waiting for an intelligent solution to my problem! This printer has been useless for several months now!

Open the front flap and take out the drum unit there will be a paper stuck. Pull it out and problem solved. :)

I have error light on. Computer won't print. I just bought the printer and it printed just fine twice. Then I turned off the power when I did not use it. When I tried to print again. the error light is...

The error light that is blinking is actually blinking out a error code. In the back of your manual under troubleshooting there should be a list.

On a printer this new about the only error you should see is a paper jam. IF anything else is wrong I'd just put it in the box and take it back. Rarely do you see something fail this new these days. It happens but not that much.

Once you look up the error code you will know what the problem is. It could be a cable unplugged or a paper jam etc. I can;t see it being serious.

I've changed the ink cartidges but the black and color ink lights remain on and it won't print. I think the E2 error message is on.

This hapens when refilled cartridges are installed in the printer. To rectify the problem, look for the 'Resume button' normally black with a red circle around an arrow head pointing towards you. With the printer powered on, press and hold this button down for about 10 seconds. The error code will usually clear and the printer will print but the orange lights will still flash.

My samsung srp270 has an error light and won't work. I have cleaned in, powered off/on and unplugged both plus and replugged. Is there a reset ?


No there is no reset for this device. Make sure your paper is in properly and ink and that the fuse is good. There isn't even an indicator as to what the error light might mean, but if you would like, here is the service manual for it:

I have a "Lexmark" X6150 Scanner/Copier/Printer.It list a an error as being "Cartridge error 50c" I put in new cartridge & it still won`t print a "Alingment Page" The Cartridge before didn`t last very...

Unplug the printer/copier from the main source of electricity, make sure it is a full ink cartridge, wait 10-20 seconds, plug it back in. Sometimes it takes unplugging it from the computer and doing the same.
