I have a lasser printer CANON LBP-5200 can I to print on photografic paper?, how many gr.?

Are you saying photographic paper or do you mean photoprint paper?
Yes, laser printer print just fine on photoprint paper. I use 20 lb or 22 lb bond. 18lb is a little light and is not usually photoprint.
If you mean overhead transparency, you have to try it. On some units the overhead transparency will melt a bit and wrinkle. You may need to try different makes of transparency. Make sure it says OK for laser printers!

hi, the blinking is caused by a fault in the printer, means it needs to be serviced, its usually more expensive for them to fix it than buying a new one, but you can get there number off the canon website.

Happy New Year

Blinking green and orange lights!

That is the code for a bad printhead (the part that your cartridges go into. It operator replaceable and I beleive it comes with instructions. If not, they are listed on Canon's site. You should be able to get it at any office supply store. I beleive the number is BC-24. That should do it Ed

Hi taximom, Is the light alternating back and forth between green and orange (GR OR GR OR GR OR GR)? Or is there a pattern like (GR OR OR OR GR OR OR OR GR) or (GR OR OR OR OR OR OR OR OR GR OR OR OR OR OR OR OR OR GR) If it the first case (alternate back and forth) then I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it needs service. (and it's probably not worth fixing) If there is a pattern to the blinking let me know exactly how many times it goes orange and I can tell you what to do from there. The Dude
