Try checking it with an external monitor. if nothing comes up evem the acer bios, it would be the fault of the video card and you need a replacement for it. you can also try to boot to the OS CD and if nothing comes up, it would really point to a faulty video card.

System error e225


Hello 3G,

To resolve the issue Error e225,

Turn the main power switch off and then back on-ICMF 4000 series/D400 Series

or

There is a risk that the MF4150 will not operate if power interruption occurs
during the firmware update. Please make sure MF4150 is connected to
reliable AC power source.

1. Save the downloaded file "MF4150_FirmwareUpdateTool_V0xx.exe on local drive. (i.e. desktop)

- Equipped with a USB port (either 1.1 or 2.0)
- Free disk space: 100 MB or more

If the light is lit or blinking, wait until all the jobs are finished (i.e., COPY, PRINT, and SCAN), and that the Processing/Data indicator is turned off.
3. Make sure that Error indicator (Red LED) on the operation panel is turned off. If Processing/Data indicator (Green LED) is lit and Error indicator (Red LED) is blinking at the same time, jobs are held in the printer memory due to an error, possible cause is out of toner or paper has run out, or toner cartridge is not installed. Check the LCD for and error message and refer to the documentation that came with the printer to resolve the error.
4. Disconnect Fax line cable from the MF4150 to prevent Fax reception interruption during firmware update.
5. Make sure the USB cable is directly connected to the MF4150 and your computer.
  • Do NOT use a USB hub to connect the cable, as it may lead to a connection error.
  • Make sure the machine is not in the Sleep mode (i.e., [Energy Saver] key on the operation panel is leit). To exit the Sleep mode, press [Energy Saver] and confirm that the Energy Saver light is off.
  • You need to log on as an administrator to perform this update.
  • Make sure that no other applications are running on your computer.
6. If [Found New Hardware Wizard] appears on your PC screen, click [Cancel] to exit the screen.
  • [Found New Hardware Wizard] screen may be displayed multiple times. Cancel anytime you encounter this screen while performing this update.
7. Double-click ?MF4150_FirmwareUpdateTool_V0xx.exe? that you downloaded and saved.
8. Double-click "MF4150_V0xx_FirmwareUST.exe" that is in the newly created folder as a result of uncompressed downloaded file.
9. Confirm that the machine is in the ready status, and then click [Transfer]

11. When [Firmware transfer is complete] appears, click [Exit].

Hp clj cm1312 mfp firmware corrupt ready 2 download, What to me to do? Help, please


You will need to apply the firmware to the machine. I've attached the link to hp site for you to download the firmware file as well. Below the link is the directions on how to accomplish this, as well you can see the same directions on via the link provided

Firmware Update Notes:
  1. The Firmware Update Utility uses the USB connection to the printer.
  2. The HP Color LaserJet CM1312 MFP print driver software must be installed prior to using this utility.
  3. The HP Color LaserJet CM1312 MFP printer must be on and in a READY state as shown by the LCD display on the control panel and remain powered on during the entire firmware update process.
  4. Depending on the processor speed of your PC, the firmware update process may complete on the printer before the update status progress bar in the flash firmware update utility on the PC screen completes, this is normal.
  5. Once the update process has started, do not use your PC for any other activity until the process is complete.
  6. Do not power cycle the product or the PC until the firmware update process is complete.
Process:
  1. Download the flash firmware updater file from HP.com to the PC desktop.

  3. Double click on the file CM1312_MFP_Series_FW_Update-20100616.exe flash firmware update utility file. An HP firmware update window will open.
  4. Select the appropriate CM1312 MFP driver in the dialog window. If you assigned a different name to the HP CM1312 MFP, choose the name that represents the correct printer.
  5. Click on "Send Firmware" when ready to proceed.
  6. The progress bar will begin to move to the right indicating information being transferred.
  7. DO NOT power cycle the product or the PC during this process or the product may become unstable and or unusable without further attention from HP. The flash firmware update can take up to 5 minutes to complete. Please be patient.
  8. During the product flash firmware update, the display on the product control panel will display "Printing Document - Erasing - Programming - Complete - Hewlett-Packard - Ready - Initializing - Ready". Once the download is finished the printer will be in the Ready state.

My laptop came on but my screen is black. I can hear my coputer on but my screen is staying black.


Here are some discrete steps you shall also take besides fixing your Windows 7 registry which is inevitable for safer and stable computing:
* Conduct an antivirus and antimalware scan. Fixing for malwares after a registry scan gives an extra protection to the PC and saves PCs from lots of dangerous infections.
* Start Windows 7 in safe mode and restore your PC/system to the previous date after which you received the Windows 7 updates. It is believed that some updates may be behind these screen issues in Windows 7.
* Adjust your display settings since the wrong settings may also cause the Windows 7 black screen also called the blank screen. You can do this by starting Windows in safe mode.
Follow all the guidelines and start from registry repairing scan for Windows 7 to fix Windows 7 black screen.use registry cleaner reg in out to solve the issue

E manchine e17tg turn on power you get just a


mrmadgbull, How long will e17tg display the WIN-desktop before it goes to BLACK screen? Is it 1, 2 ...4, 5.....20 seconds? How old is unit? Does unit have internal ac to dc SMPS or external (lay on floor) SMPS? Did problem occur suddenly? What do you see on screen after "it" goes black and you shine a bright flashlight 1 inch from screen? Can you still see some icons being faintly displayed?? Is unit out of it's warranty period? If lcd panel is both black and blank, "switch-mode-power-supply" could be in full shutdown mode. If you see desktop, SMPS is in partial shutdown mode. You or electronics technician will need to evaluate and repair unit. Read my FIXYA profile for more options you may have open to you. Your monitor no different than any other "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp" backlit LCD monitor. There is a lot of DIY videos on YOUTUBE that deal with this type of monitor problem. Lots of tech types pick-up "black screen" lcd monitors at resale shops and refurbish them for less than $20 total cost, and they will work for another 2 -4 years. Do your research before making hasty decisions. If pocket is deep with disposable income, then just use e17tg as trade-in for new wide screen. Hope this was of some help. 12fixlouie

Never ever touch the printer while upgrading the firmware.

  • DO NOT power cycle the printer or the PC during this process or the printer may become unstable and or unusable without further attention from HP . The firmware update can take up to 5 minutes to complete. Please be patient.
  • During the printer firmware update, the liquid crystal display (LCD) on the printer control panel will display "Printing Document" and will change to "Erasing". After a short while, the LCD display will change to "Programming". After a short while, the LCD will display "complete : )" and the "Ready" LED on the printer will be flashing. The printer will automatically power cycle to reboot and will make noises similar to power on.

jcriley, If your SAMSUNG is not to old, try to get them to replace it or do a cash+old unit for a same model refurbished unit! You may have a monitor that has a "switch-mode-power-supply" that is in partial or full shutdown mode. When very strange and weird things start to occur with a LCD fluorescent lamp backlit monitor or for that matter LCD tv/monitor I would always suspect the culprit to be the SMPS!!! Get back to me lmistyrel@ aim or 12fixlouie on fixya after you perform SMPS evaluation test using the flashlight trick to see if the screen data is still being displayed even though the screen appears to be blank. It may only be BLACK, but not blank!! Read some of my other posts here on fixya and also visit a website www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm FYI !! It is run by another tech on fixya nickname "buddymc". If you do a second post, give us a little history of unit in question such as age and screen appearance just prior to BLACK SCREENof DEATH setting in! 12fixlouie

No signal from computer to monitor 8/13/08!


I had the exact same problem!! Drove me crazy for days. Couldn't find any answers online, contacted Gateway tech support and they told me my warranty was expired but they'd be happy to discuss my issue for $2 per minute. Gateway can **** it!!

At first I thought the problem might be a malfunctioning NVIDIA card, a problem with my DVI cable, or the monitor itself. But, after turning off the computer, unplugging the DVI cable, replugging the DVI cable and restarting the computer, I noticed I could get the firmware flash screen to show, including the BIOS menu boot and the Gateway system reinstall screen to show. As soon as the Windows flash logo would display, however, the monitor would drop out and display the dreaded "No Signal" error.
This indicated the problem was a software one and not hardware! The cable, monitor and video card were all working fine. Then I remembered that Windows installed its automatic update a few days prior. In fact...

THE PROBLEM TURNED OUT TO BE A WINDOWS UPDATE INSTALLED A FEW DAYS PRIOR.

After succesfully booting into safe mode (F8 during the flash/bootup screens), I went to Add or Remove programs in the control panel, clicked on the "Show Updates" box on the top, and uninstalled the Windows update from a few days prior to the occurance of the error. After a reboot the problem was solved.

I hope this will help anybody else struggling with this error!
