Question about Printers & Copiers

3 Answers

In March 2008, I bought a CANON printer "PIXMA MP210" series. But, only last week I was abled to errected and connected the printer to my Fujitsu Life Book # A6110 (lap top). When switching on the printer, the green light (on/off switch) and yellow light (alarm light) alternatively flashes with a short and then a long phase [--.--.--) The light flashing continues until switch offed and the printer is not working at all.

    Sorry, the solution was not helpful. According Canon printers manual, the book suggested to do the same. Twice, I triesed the (possible) solution but not successful. Is there a place in Dallas,Texes where I can take the printer for checking and rectification.
    Thanks

Hello,

Try following:

Disconnect the USB cable from the machine, turn the machine off & then unplug the machine from the power supply. Plug the machine back in & turn the machine back on after leaving it for a while.

If the problem is not resolved/ ur printer is in warranty, contact Canon Service

Check for the error code displayed on the seven segement LED display. You can get the remedial action corresponding to error code in the troubleshooting section of user manual, you must have got with the printer. Alternatively, you can download the manual from the following link

    1. Check connectivity
    -Check to see if the printer is plugged into an electrical source. It could be that power is not being supplied to the printer at all. The problem may also be the printer cable connected to the printer and computer ports, so make sure all your connections are secured tightly.

    2. Check your applications.
    -If you can, then the problem lies with the original application, not the printer. Make sure that the application in question knows which printer it should be connected to. You can usually check this under the application's File menu. Under File, choose Print or Print Setup and then pick the desired printer from the selection presented in the printers list.

    3. Is the printer online?
    -If the light is off or blinking, press the Offline/Online (or equivalent) button once to bring the printer back online. If the light is on, try printing a test page. Some printers have a Test Page button located right on the printer.

    Let us know again here..

    Thank you

    Try this one also disconnect the power cable, removing the paper cassette, turning the printer upside down and PRESSed hard at the paper cassette's 2 side guides at the far end of the cassette rails(these guides are held down by big springs) into the printer body until they cliked into place. I then turned the printer right side-up, connected the power and pressed the Power button and waited till the Green power light stopped flashing (all these while, some clickig and knocking sound emitted from the printer) and presto! -- the orange light no longer illuminated. Insert the paper casette and start printing.



    Inform me if it work....

Not printing or scanning


Are the cables connected properly and is the printer switched on? and are you selecting the right printer when you attempt to print?
