Printer Won't Switch On

Began when printer wouldn't print and red light flashing. Checked everything but nothing wrong.
Reinstalled software but still wouldn't work. Now it won't even switch on.

My last Epson printer stopped working with a message that it was time for maintenence. Is this what's happening? There's no message.

Help!

It looks like you did have the "replace waste ink pads" problem. If you still have this problem and want help in solving it, please post a new comment to this effect.

Red lite on printer-won't print


The red light on this printer would normally indicate paper jam, a cover open or the waste toner container is full. I would recommend double checking that no small bits of paper have got themselves lodged around rollers inside the printer. Failing this I would check the status of the waste toner bottle to see how full the printer thinks it is.
This can normally be done using the printers software on the PC, but sadly I am unfamiliar with doing it for your particular machine.

There is a light flashing on the one switch on my Hp Deskjet d2360 and it won't print. I think it might be a mechanical problem, but I can't see anything wrong..


In most cases the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.Sometimes the power supply unit must be checked as a poor SMPS unit can deliver low voltage and cause issues to the printer function. Check all the leads and connections of the mother board , the tags to the ink cartridge. Also check the mechanical settings of the ink cartridge , if jammed or tight remove motor and manually free the drive before it is set back.

Epson D88 will not print, both red lights flash, message remove obstruction switch off and on. No change still 2 redlights flashing


The Lights can flash on an error and also iff the INK levels are down. You must check the ink levels and try to do a reset with printer software reinstalled.
Remvoe pinter from the PC, unistall and then reinstall to see if the printer shows the INK level exactly. If not replace INK cartridges to confirm.

Printer won't print red light flashing


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Error light and no printing


What does the status monitor message say? The red light is the most general error. It's bit like taking a 747 back to Boeing and saying there is something wrong with it.

If you do not have the status monitor installed, download it from Konica Minolta and run it. Once the status monitor is running it will read the error from the printer.

Printer has red lights permanently on when powered up


if they were initially flashing fast there is a fatal error and a repair is needed, but always try a re install first. Go to printers and faxes folder and go to your Epson C88 printer icon, right click on it and select cancel all documents or prints, then select uninstall, to remove the printer. Uninstall driver from add/remove programmes, turn off and remove printer from usb port and restart pc. Install the drivers and software again from the cdrom and when prompted to connect printer, switch it on but connect to a different usb port if possible and allow windows to detect and install. If the lights are still steady red or flashing fast, then the printer is faulty.
