To morganjonesp
the big light that on it own by the red button is the power/ status
green- is on and ready to print
flashing green- printing
amber - fault
the other 4 in a line with a coloured label around them are the toner information
no lights toner- OK
light on- toner is low this will work along side the on screen display you get.

when the printer starts up it run a test and these light are check to see if they are working- watch next time you switch it on.

to myersk
does the printer run though its check and finish and then is ready?
if so then the problem is with what you are sending to the printer to be printed
if not then the problem could be a stuck printer part, a open cover, a bit of paper in the rollers or a major problem!
does the on screen control panel not tel you what is wrong?

I've got the answer
When i changed the cyan and the yellow toner, the same thing happened to me. The problem is that clp 300 has got a litle button on the superior part of the toners door, it's black and very little, just it can be seen when toner's door is open under CLP-300 label. You just have to push that zone when you close the toner's door, because if you don't do that, the printer thinks that the door is already openned.

I whish this helps

Relinment problem with my new colour cartridge

Wil Lexmark printers this usually means one of more colours is absent from the alignment page (usually cyan). I recommend standing the cartridge on a hot, damp folded tissue for 30-60 seconds. This will dissolve any dried ink in its printhead and hopefully help pull through the colour.

If it is available before alignment I would also recommend doing a couple of cleaning cycles from the printer.

Red light on

which light is red?
there are 4 lights in a row with colours beside them - if it's one of those, that means there is low ink for that colour.
if it's the larger button below it that's red, you might need the printer management software to be running on the computer it's connected to to tell you what's wrong.

Says to check color cartridge

The cartridge could be faulty. Try replacing it with a new colour cartridge. Are you using generics?

Bought a canon super g3 laser printer approx 8 months ago which prints in black and white. can i put a colour cartridge into this printer?? thank you

Super G3 is not the model. It is Canon's fax technology. It is classified as a laser fax/printer. This is a monochrome printer which means you can print only one colour at a time. You can print all black or all yellow, all red or whatever colour cartridge is available.It has no capability to mix colours. Not any colour (including black) toner will work as the composition is different to suit the printer model. Hope this helps.

Light blue lines keep printing behind my black printing areas on word documents

this means the black ink is running low and the printer is tryin to resolve this issue with bringing colour to take half of the black ink cartidges process, this just saves on ink, its usually called ecconomical mode, you can turn off this feature. or alternatively this may be cause by low ink in general, try replacing the ink cartridge.

hope this helps.
