* RED paper light flashes- Paper is jammed in the printer. Press the paper button to eject the jammed paper. If the light is still flashing , open the cover and remove all paper, including any jammed or torn pieces. Then reload paper and press the paper button to continue printing.
* RED Ink Light Flashes - One or more cartridges are low on ink. Check the message that appears on your screen to determine which cartridge is low, or follow the instructions in " Checking the Ink Supply". Make sure you have a replacement cartridge.
* RED Ink Light is ON- One or more cartridges are out of ink or not installed. If you have just installed a new cartridge, it may be incomaptible with the printer or incorrectly installed. Reinstall it or replace it with the correct cartridge
* RED Ink and RED paper lights flash alternately- The CD/DVD tray guide was left open when you turned on the printer or when printing on paper. Just simply close it/
* Green Power Light is Off; RED paperand RED Ink Lights flashing- Paper may be blocking movement of the print head. Turn off the printer, then open the cover and remove any jammed paper or other foreign objects. Turn the printer back on again. Or it may have an internal error. Turn off the printer, wait a few seconds, then turn it on again.

Philips mf jet 500

I can post you a copy of the disk version 1.01.
It is for Windows 98/2000/ME/XP it supports German, English, Spanish, Dutch, Italian and French. I will include the 32 page manual in English pdf format as well.
Anyone interested email me at to check I am still alive, then Paypal me £3 including postage and it is yours.
It is very unlikely that Sagem (who have taken over support from Philips) will ever produce a Vista driver.
I have one of these beasties but the ink is so expensive I doubt I will ever use it again. But if anyone can suggest a cheap source of ink that would be great.
