Change the printer properties to direct to printer instead of spool in the advanced printer properties.
This worked for me... cleaning that ctd thing did not help at all.

Errors occur alot of times when printing .....So you want to keep a printing utility as well as a scanning utility.....To handle a printing/ scanning error .....So just go to the company's web page like dell.com...and look for keywords like support, drivers or driver and software.......

Once you've found the support section you would have to do a search for the product you have so that you can download either the drivers or softwares, but in your case you would want to download the print utility ......


Here's a link i placed for you to jump to ....to make it easier for you....But before you download anything......Where it says " Refine your results" on the dell web page ....you must choose the right windows you currently have on the pc so you can download the right compatible software that can function with the your windows....Now what software you're going to be looking for?.. is under the title system management ...donwload the latest version and see what happens...

When a paper jam occurs, the printer stops and the operator panel's Paper Jam light and Continue button lights come on. Press and release Continue twice quickly to display the specific secondary error paper jam light sequence.


How to clear Paper Jam

Press Continue button twice quickly to see the secondary error code.


To get the secondary error codes

When the Error light (!) and Continue button lights are both on, a secondary error has occurred.

When the Paper Jam light (4th light) and Continue button lights are both on, a paper jam secondary error has occurred.

Press and release Continue button twice quickly to display the secondary error code light sequence.


Press Continue button to resume printing once all the jammed pages are cleared from the paper path.

We recommend that you clear the entire paper path when a paper jam occurs.


To clear a paper jam:


1 If you are feeding paper from a tray, remove the tray, and then remove any jams.

2 Open the front cover and remove the print cartridge assembly.

NOTE: Do not leave the print cartridge assembly exposed to direct light for an Extended period of time. Extended light exposure can cause print quality problems.

3 Remove any jams in the area behind the print cartridge assembly.

4 Lift the flap at the front of the printer and remove any jams beneath the flap.

5 Open the rear exit and remove any jams.

6 After you have cleared the jams, reinstall the print cartridge assembly, make sure all printer covers and trays are closed, and then press Continue button to resume printing.

NOTE: The printer reprints the pages that caused the paper jam.

Printer will not print in black was the first problem and now after less than a minute after turning on it has the light for 'on' flashing green and amber constantly


Try this:
1- Pull the cartridges out, restart printer then reinstall the cartridges again
2- The blinking can mean any of these: paper out, paper jam, cover open, printing error. Please check that there is enough paper, no paper jam (sometimes even the smallest piece of paper will cause that error, then restart both (the printer and the computer)
Best of luck

My error light keeps blinking but I have no idea whats causing it - last time it was a paper jam, which I fixed easily enough, but now I've no idea what to do


turn on/off, unplug, plug in, should reset configs.

take all the paper out, put half as much back in.
check the rollers to make sure no paper or particles are stuck preventing from accepting paper.

go to applications folder for your computer, dbl click printer icon for make of printer. check settings. print 'test document and clean cartridge heads', this should ensure proper printing formats.

lastly, go to web site of printer model and check site for trouble shooting if this does not work above.
hope this helps and good luck

Deskjet 895Cx1 Green and Ornage lights flashing together Problem & solution, please


Please find below the section in the user manual for the printer that tells you what the lights mean. Hope this helps.


Sometimes the lights on the printer signal a problem:

Both lights are off

• The printer is turned off. Press the power button. If you still don’t see the glowing green light, make sure the printer is plugged into a power outlet and that the outlet has power.

Both lights blink
• Paper may be jammed in the printer. Open the front cover and remove any jammed paper. Close the front cover and turn the printer off, then on again. Go to “Clearing a Paper Jam” on page 67.

• The cartridge cradle may be jammed.
Close the front cover, turn the printer off, then on again.
The power light blinks, and the resume light is off
• This is normal behavior when the printer is receiving data, printing, or waiting for ink to dry.

The power light glows steadily, and the resume light blinks
One or both of the inkjet printer cartridges may not be seated properly, or you may have forgotten to remove
the tape from a new inkjet printer cartridge. Open the front cover. Remove both inkjet printer cartridges. Holding the black plastic sides of the inkjet printer cartridge, check to be sure the tape has been removed from the print head. Then replace the inkjet printer
cartridges in the cartridge cradle. Make sure each inkjet printer cartridge is pressed all the way into the cartridge
cradle. If an inkjet printer cartridge feels at all loose, it is not properly seated. For instructions, go to “Insert Print Cartridges” on page 5.

• The front cover may be open. Make sure it is closed.
• There may be no paper in the lower paper tray. Load paper.
• The printer may need to reset. Press and release the Resume button.
• Your computer may be low on memory. Try restarting it.
• Turn the printer off, then on again. (This resets the printer.)
• Repeat the printing process.
Sometimes problems disappear when you try to print your document again.
• Printing problems can often be caused by errors in your applications.

If you can print from the SimpleText or TeachText application but not from another application, it’s probably a problem with that application. Contact the publisher of that application for help.

• Restart your computer.
