I am not sure what the light pattern indicates though but try to reset your printer. Unplug the power adapter(small black box where the power cord is attached) from the back of your printer.

Wait at least 10 seconds before plugging the power adapter back in the printer. Also, check and make there are no paper jams.

My epson tx700 printer dispaly ink pad at end of life and printer not start


A fix from a forum:

Procedure 1 We found this procedure to work for the Stylus Photo 1270 type printer, and understand that it also works for the 870 range and even earlier models like the Stylus Color 740. The error is indicated on these printers by all four lights on the printer flashing. Even if you press the power switch on the printer, the lights continue to flash, and the printer does not turn off!
  1. Turn off your printer, ensuring that the print head is at it's home location and locked in place as normal;
  2. Power off the printer at the wall or by removing the power cable, for at least 20 seconds;
  3. When you restore power to the printer at the wall socket or by reinserting the cable, if the lights come back on straight away, the printer's power switch was 'on' - switch it off and return to step 1;
  4. Hold down the paper-feed button and the button with the ink-drops next to it, and then turn on the printer, still holding the buttons down;
  5. When the paper-out LED flashes, release the buttons;
  6. Press and hold the Cleaning button, until several lights flash - this will take a few seconds (i.e. then release the button);
  7. The printer will now attempt to reset, including resetting the EEPROM memory and running a short (about 10 seconds) cleaning cycle.
Procedure 2
  1. Turn off your printer, ensuring that the print head is at it's home location and locked in place as normal;
  2. Hold down the paper feed button only;
  3. Turn on the printer;
  4. As the paper feed light starts flashing, release the button;
  5. Immediately hold down the ink-drops button for some 10-20 seconds or until the printer springs into life;
  6. Allow printer to complete it's processing, then turn off for a few seconds, and back on again for a newly working printer!
Procedure 3 - for 1290 and possibly 890 printers 1290 printer with green (power / data) and red (ink / paper feed) lights flashing alternately:
  1. Switch off printer with panel switch;
  2. Switch off printer at mains switch - leave off for 20+ seconds;
  3. Hold down roll feed and sheet feed buttons;
  4. Switch on at mains;
  5. Switch on at printer panel;
  6. Continue to hold down roll and sheet feed buttons until both green and red lights flash together in synchronisation, not alternately;
  7. Switch printer off and then, after a few seconds, on again at mains switch;
  8. When red and green lights are both flashing in synchronisation, release the roll and sheet feed buttons;
  9. Press and hold down the ROLL FEED button (the one at the extreme left) and keep it down until the machine finishes whirring, cleaning etc and the green light comes on steady;
  10. Release the roll feed button and all should be well.

When i switch on the canon ip4300 printer orange light flashing 5 times


5 flashes indicates a faulty printhead or possibly a problem with the p/head contacts. Try removing the head which is easier if you take the cartridges out first(no tools required) and re-seat it having checked the contacts for dirt.

If that doesn't work it may be that the waste ink tank is full. Try this ...


1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal.

My x1240 scans but does not copy or print. What do you suggest?


You will need to do the following diagnostic tests to determine the exact cause of the error:

· Remove the ink cartridges

· Perform the self test (test B below)

· Test the ink cartridges

A. To remove the ink cartridges:
Switch the printer on by pressing the green button.
Open the front cover of the printer. The cartridge carrier should move to the center of the opening.
Remove both cartridges.
If the carrier does not move to the center of the opening, you will need to remove the cartridges by hand.
Turn the printer off and remove the power supply cable (the small circular one) from the back of the printer.
Open the front cover of the printer.
Inside the printer, locate the silver metal carrier bar on which the print carriage slides.
Locate the black rubber carrier belt above the carrier bar. This belt has tracks on its inner portion.
Grab the top portion of the belt and move it toward the right. As you move this, the ink cartridge carrier will move to the left. Continue to move the belt until the carrier is in the center of the opening.
Now pull both cartridges out.


B. To perform the self-test:
Disconnect both the power cable and the USB or parallel cable.
After one minute has passed, plug the power supply cable (the small black circular one) back in. (This step is necessary to reset the printer.)
Turn the printer off by pressing the green power button.
Hold down the grey paper feed button.
Turn the printer on by pressing the green button.
After the printer begins to feed paper, release the grey button.
Once the paper exits the printer, press the green button to turn the printer off.

If the power light blinks twelve times while no cartridges are installed, there is a problem with the printer. Please contact our Technical Support Centre for your service options. If this is a new purchase, you can also exchange the printer at the point of purchase. If the paper went through the printer as if printing was occurring, you will need to do some more testing. Continue as instructed below.


C. To test the ink cartridges:
Open the front cover and insert only the black ink cartridge. Make sure that you push it back until it snaps into place.
Close the front cover. If the light flashes twelve times, there may be a defect in the black cartridge. If not, proceed to the next step.
Turn the printer off using the green power button.
Hold down the grey paper-feed button.
Turn the printer on using the green button.
After the printer begins to feed paper, release the grey button.
Once the paper exits the printer, press the green button to turn the printer off.
If the light flashes twelve times, there may be a defect in the black cartridge. If a page came through with a black line, your black cartridge is working properly.
Now you need to take the black cartridge out and perform the same steps with the color cartridge. If the light flashes twelve times, there may be a defect in the color cartridge. If a page came through with colored lines, your color cartridge is working properly.

If one of the cartridges is causing the problem, you will need to replace that cartridge. If it is a new cartridge, please exchange it at the point of purchase, or contact our Technical Support Centre.
