    I have the same problem with my printer screen reading "Shutting Down..." I have not had any paper jams; none of my ink cartridges are low and I have tried unplugging it. Any suggestions?

What is the printer model? also, check where you removed the jam from, and make sure any jam sensor flags are not out of place...

Epson stylus photo px660 with a paper jam error after dismantling it displays a printer error with all lights flashing


Paper jam problems can occur due to strayed, stuck bits of papers in pathway of paper tray, outlet, roller etc. I would recommend cleaning the paper inlet, outlet, and other possible areas to avoid a paper jam situation. I have observed that most people fan the paper pile to keep them dry or non-sticky. It's a wrong method because fanning the pile of papers make them go haywire and often lead to paper jam.

The flashing lights are a "Maintenance request error" or a "Fatal error". Most of the time it is a "Maintenance request error" which means the waste ink pads need to be serviced. You can reset the waste ink counter but the ink pads will need to be serviced at some point.

you can try following points.......

1.turn off the machine for at least 5 minutes and disconnect the interface cable to the computer.

2. push and hold down the "ink" button and the "paper" button and turn the printer on.

3. When the "paper" light flashes quickly release both the buttons and then immediately press and hold down the "ink" button only for at least 10 seconds.

**You will need to try this several times to get the sequence correctly.

Was printing labels and the feeder pulled the page through crooked so it jammed. I pulled the paper out, it ripped, I opened the printer and got the remaining peices out and shut off the printer. When I...


ALthough you didnt give the model of the printer this has helped reset it on other epson printers.
unplug the printer from both USB and Power.
Hold down power button and then plug in the printer while the power is held down.
if this doesn't do it try holding down the paper button and the power, while plugging in. since this can be tricky, plug it into a power strip so you can power off and on easily. This is a help at the bottom for a R220 that mentions somthing similar.

Flashing orange arrow . cant get anything to print


Try taking out the print cartridges and then putting them back in and make sure they are really well inserted when you replace them. Then slam the lid down to really make sure its shut and it should resolve the problem.

Problem on a canon 3100


The Power Light Flashes Orange - Error Codes When an error occurs, the power light flashes orange. The number of orange flashes followed by a long green flash indicates the cause of the problem.
Two orange flashes: Out of paper, paper jam, or paper feed error
If no paper is loaded in the auto sheet feeder, or if the paper is not loaded correctly, set the paper correctly and press the Resume button on the printer to continue printing.
Three orange flashes: Paper jam
If paper has jammed in the printer, carefully remove the jam and press the Resume button to continue printing.
Four orange flashes: A tank inside the BJ cartridge (print head) is out of ink
Replace the empty BJ tank and press the Resume button to continue printing.
Five orange flashes: BJ cartridge is not installed properly
Remove and reseat the cartridge correctly. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed. Make sure the blue locking lever is locked down securely.
Six orange flashes: BJ cartridge (printhead) is not installed
Remove and reseat the cartridge correctly. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed. Make sure the blue locking lever is locked down securely.
Seven orange flashes: BJ cartridge (printhead) is defective
Remove the BJ cartridge and check that the contacts on the cartridge and cartridge holder are clean. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed and reinstall the cartridge. If the error occurs again after you resume operation, you may need to replace the BJ cartridge.
Eight orange flashes: Waste ink absorber almost full
The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber to hold the ink that is consumed during print head cleaning. This error indicates that the waste ink absorber is nearly full. Press the Resume button to skip the error so you can continue printing.
The POWER light flashes orange and green alternately: Service error
A service error means the printer requires the attention of a qualified technician. Count the number of flashes. (You may be asked this information.)

My Epson cx 4200 won't print because each attempt the paper jam light flashes and the printer stops trying to print. The paper is being pulled into the machine un-evenly.


It's highly likely that you either have a foreign object down the paper feed tray or the guides are incorrectly set...

Hopefully one of these will solve this:

1. Remove any paper, tape down the scanner lid and
gently tip your printer upside down and give it a GENTLE shake to see if anything drops out. This is really only something I'd recommend for someone strong and careful so take your time.

2. Check for any jammed foreign objects such as pens, paper clips, etc...that have fallen down into the printer. The place to look is wherever the paper seems to be bunching up most as it goes through

3. Make sure you're inserting the paper, with the guides set to the correct width and not loose. The guides help correct any issues with skew as the paper is pulled in, so this may correct any other issues.


Hope one of these helps..

The BJC 3000 will flash two different colored lights in a pattern to signal several different errors. From the documentation I have the two colors are orange and green, could those be the colors you see? At any rate here is the code: Two orange flashes: Out of paper, paper jam, or paper feed error. If no paper is loaded in the auto sheet feeder, or if the paper is not loaded correctly, set the paper correctly and press the Resume button on the printer to continue printing. Three orange flashes: Paper jam. If paper has jammed in the printer, carefully remove the jam and press the Resume button to continue printing. Four orange flashes: A tank inside the BJ cartridge (print head) is out of ink. Replace the empty BJ tank and press the Resume button to continue printing. Five orange flashes: BJ cartridge is not installed properly. Remove and reseat the cartridge correctly. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed. Make sure the blue locking lever is locked down securely. Six orange flashes: BJ cartridge (printhead) is not installed. Remove and reseat the cartridge correctly. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed. Make sure the blue locking lever is locked down securely. Seven orange flashes: BJ cartridge (printhead) is defective. Remove the BJ cartridge and check that the contacts on the cartridge and cartridge holder are clean. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed and reinstall the cartridge. If the error occurs again after you resume operation, you may need to replace the BJ cartridge. Eight orange flashes: Waste ink absorber almost full. The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber to hold the ink that is consumed during print head cleaning. This error indicates that the waste ink absorber is nearly full. Press the Resume button to skip the error so you can continue printing. The POWER light flashes orange and green alternately: Service error.

Canon s520


The number of orange flashes between green flashes indicates the type of error, as outlined below. Check the cause and take the appropriate action. Two flashes: Out of paper, paper jam or paper feed error Replace the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button. If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam and press the RESUME/CANCEL button. Three flashes: Paper jam If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, replace the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button. Four flashes: Empty ink tank One of the ink tanks is empty. Replace it. If all of the above won't help, unplug the printer from the power cable, wait a while, and plug in. If that didn't fix you, I guess it's time to get in touch with canon, or a repair lab you trust. Good luck
