Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

The power / on-off button is flashing rapidly when I attempt to switch on my x1290, and it is not communicating with my laptop, despite USB cable being connected OK. The printer is unresponsive to pressing any of the buttons on the printer itself, and unplugging it from the mains and plugging it in again, and the same for the USB cable including a reboot of the laptop appear to have done nothing. Any thoughts?

Panic over!! I unplugged the printer from the mains, took out the USB cable etc, rebooted my Laptop, and plugged the printer back in again... this time, when the power button was pressed, everything worked as normal, and it seems to be staying that way.

Will not power up. power indicator lamp is dull and flashing rapidly


Try removing the battery, disconnect the power cord. Remove any other devices such as USB devices. Hold down the power button for about 1 min. Release the power button. Connect the power cord only, not the battery. See if the laptop will power up. If not please let me know the indicator light flash pattern.

How do I pair my headset to its USB adapter?


Procedure

Your headset and adapter are already factory pre-paired, and should automatically connect with each other. Should your headset and adapter become unpaired, you can initiate pairing manually. To Pair Your Headset and Adapter:
  1. Start with your headset powered off. Press and hold the power button for about 4 seconds, until the status light rapidly flashes blue. Release the button and set the headset aside.
  2. While the USB adapter is plugged into the computer, pinch the connect/pair button for about 4 seconds, until the status light rapidly flashes blue. Release the button.
  3. The headset and adapter will automatically attempt to pair. If the pairing is successful the status lights will glow solid blue; if unsuccessful, both headset and adapter will stay in pairing mode.
If the pairing was unsuccessful and you want to try to pair again, you must first take your headset and adapter out of pairing mode:
  1. Turn your headset off.
  2. Single press the connect/pair button on the adapter.
  3. Repeat the "To Pair Your Headset and Adapter" procedure, above.
If your headset and adapter are separated and lose their connection after being successfully paired, they will automatically reconnect when they come back into range of each other. If they remain out of range for more than 30 seconds, the headset will go into sleep mode, but will reconnect automatically with the adapter once it is back in range. If the headset is out of range for more than 15 minutes, it automatically shuts off.

When drive is switched on blue light on front flashes rapidly but the drive icon does not appear on the dektop.


Hello, the light blinking rapidly means that the drive is trying to establish communication with the computer but cannot.
First, check if the power brick is silent when plugged into the wall power outlet. If it is noisy, like hissing or high pitch noise, usually replacing it will solve the issue.
If the power supply seems healthy, it might be the port you are currently using, either on computer or drive side. Try using a different port on the computer, if no change, try using a different port on the drive. Using USB if connected firewire or using Firewire if connected USB.
If your drive is out of warranty, you can take out the internal hard drive and connect it directly to an internal port or put it in another enclosure to access your data, the internal hard drive should have no issue.

Metz 45CL-4 not firing consistently... Hi, Have a problem with a Metz 45CL-4 flashgun. I may have damaged the circuit by rapid charging from an external NiMh pack whilst trying to form the main capacitor....


Hi Guys!
I have had the same problem on CT-1 s and CT-5s.
In both cases the flash cable (called PC synch cable) was to blame. If flash fires correctly with the test button on the handle, then cleaning the cable contacts with contact cleaner spray seems to be the best first step.
Regards,
Gerard
