Try resetting the printer.
How to reset the printer. Turn off the printer, (in the back) then turn on the printer while holding down the Reset button on the top. Release the reset button when the light turns green then wait for the printing to stop. IMPORTANT: Next press the reset button for 1/2 second. If you hold it too long it will not reset the printer properly.

Installed gigabit MB new power supply, all new parts and only get flashing lights on the optical drive on boot up any ideas what i could be doing wrong ?


1. Check whether two power connectors are connected (one is 20 pin and the other 4 pin)
2. Remove all FRONT USB, Audio, HDD, CDRom and other connections on motherboard, except the power button connection now turn on.
3. If still does not, instead of Power button use reset button connection for Power button and try.
4. Check whether proper memory supporting type is installed in proper direction, try putting in another slot.
5. Change the SMPS eventhough it may be powering on.
6. Check the Motherboard by keeping it externally taking precautions.

Printer not working


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
