Error contiually flashes

Hello,

I have a HP J5780 all in one that suddenly keeps flashing with the error

'turn power off then on'

when I do this on the machine, or power point, etc, the error just keeps re-appearing. As we are a business, we do rely on our fax a lot so it would be great if you could help

regards

HP J5780 printer is printing backwards


Hello,

You may have the Mirror image turned on.

Open a job to print. Select File>Print. When the Print window opens, select Preferences, then click on the Advanced tab.

Look for the Mirror Image option. If it says ON, click on it and change it to OFF. Then click OK.

Mirror Image is mainly for iron on transfers.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Flashing lights.. when i turn power off it just does same thing


All lights flashing indicates a "fatal error" condition, so the printer just needs to be reset:

1. Turn the HP c3180 off.
2. Unplug the power cord.
3. Wait a minute, then plug the power cord
back in.
4. Turn the HP c3180 back on.

This should clear the system error and restore the printer to its "out-of-the-box" default settings.
