Question about HP Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

The power button keeps blinking and I can't shut the printer off . I was printing directions from mapquestand only one page and part of another page printed. I tried several times to print again but nothing. I pulled up the deskjet and it says it's still printing and is active but it has been 5 hours now and all I wanted printed was two pages

I fixed the problem. I guess I hit the hold button on my printer without realizing what I had done. That's why the printer would not shut off and it was kept in the active state. I just started hitting buttons and once I hit the resume button the printer started working again.
Thanks anyway.

Zebra TLP 2844 printing landscape instead of portrait.


To change from "page mode" (protrait) to "line mode" (landscape) you need to complete the following steps.
1. turn the power off
2. hold the feed button down
3. turn power on, the feed button should blink, release the button.
4. when the feed button blinks green, press and hold until it turns red or amber. release the button.
5. turn the power off.
6. hold down the feed button and turn power on, the button should blink and release. it will now print a calibration page. 4 blanks followerd by 2 text pages, the last saying "Now in DUMP" press feed to exit. on the first print, the 4th line down will say either page mode or line mode.

Blinking light--won't print


give a try to dis one..

Remove all the cartridges and the paper from the printer...Power off the printer...unplugg the power cable from the back of the printer...while printer is unplugged from the power..press n hold the power button for atleast 60 seconds then release it..open the back door of the printer and look for any paper jam...remove paper from behind (if any) and roll the rollers in upward direction from behind..close the back door and connect the power cable to the printer and power on the printer..Look for the cartridge slots and clean it wid a lynt free cloth and the copper contacts of the cartridges as well...then insert only one cartridge (black or color) and close the cartridge door and check for any blinking lights on the printer...similarily repeat it with the other cartridge..by this u wud get to know if any cartridge is faulty? If u get blinking lights on the printer ...that means there is some problem,,,
Once you see the steady green light on the power..it means the printer is ready..You can also print a test page..."Press n Hold the power button down...while holding the power button down...either press "Down Arrow button" 4 Times OR "Red X button once"...then release the Power button to print the test print..
If it prints ..u r the master !!!
Best of luck

Remember if there is any blinking light,,the printer wont prin..
if the light blinks around the drops..it means there is cartridge issue and you may even replace the cartridges..make sure u remove the pink tape carefully before inserting the cartridges.

ALL THE BEST

If the "Resume" & "Power" buttons & lights are the ones you refer to, then here is a page explaining how to resolve this issue:
