    I have exactly the same problem. The printer has been fine for years. We have attached it to a new client on the network and despite trying the options suggested, it makes no difference. We only ever use tray 2 and I have even tried telling it to specifically print to that tray, but still no joy. The new client will be using the standard windows driver which came with the operating system on the client. We still use XPPro. Any ideas?

Sounds like its waiting for a manual feed. Check the paper you have in the tray and that the selectors on the tray are properly positioned. Once that os done, on the computer side hit the start ICON on your desktop, then control panel, then printers and faxes. Double click on your 2100 print driver to open it. Go into properties and make sure it says "automatic" for tray select. Hit the advanced key and check that it says letter or whatever paper size you have in the tray.

Verify the other settings and then save it.

That should solve your issue.

The red triangle light with the "!" in it keeps flashing. I've just printed some things off but now it's not printing. Need it to print obviously..


ATTENTION light(triangle): Indicates that the print-cartridge door is open, print cartridge is missing, and other errors.

If ATTENTION and READY light is blinking:

Printer initialization
The printer is initializing.
No action is necessary.

Cleaning mode
A cleaning page is printing.
Wait until the cleaning page has finished and the printer is in the Ready state.
This could take up to two minutes.

If ATTENTION and READY light is on:

Fatal error
Turn off the printer, and then unplug the printer power cord for 30 minutes.
Plug the printer power cord into the power outlet, and then turn the printer on.
If the error persists, replace the printer.

If ATTENTION light is blinking and READY light is off:

  1. Attention: door open, no print cartridge, or media jam
The printer is in an error state that requires operator intervention.
Check the following:
? The print cartridge door must be completely closed.
? The print cartridge is correctly installed.
? There is no media jam.

2. Out of memoryThe printer is out of memory.
The page you are printing might be too complex for the printer's memory capacity.
Try lowering the resolution.

C45 how to clean nozzels


You can print the print head using the Control Panel buttons;
1. Make sure that the fontp.gif power light is on and that the font28.gif error light is off. 2. Hold down the font28.gif maintenance button for three seconds. The printer starts cleaning the print head and the fontp.gif power light begins flashing. Important - Never turn off the printer while the fontp.gif power light is flashing. Doing so may damage the printer. 3. When the fontp.gif power light stops flashing, print a nozzle check pattern to confirm that the head is clean.

How do I replace the photoconductor where is the menu button to reset PC CNT appears after it is replaced?


Power the printer on and get it to the Ready state. With the printer on and in the Ready state, open the front cover.
Press and hold the Cancel button until all of the lights begin flashing up and down.
Release the Cancel button and close the door. The photoconductor count should now be reset.
To confirm that the photoconductor page count has been reset, it is recommended that you print a menu settings page and check the photoconductor level. Do the following:
With the printer at the Ready status, press the Continue button once. The Ready light will begin flashing and one or two pages will print out.
Look for a section labeled Cartridge Information and locate the word Photoconductor under this heading.
Confirm that the photoconductor level reading is either OK or close to 100%.
If the reading is low, try printing 10 - 20 pages. Print the menu settings page(s) again.
Confirm that the photoconductor level reading is OK or close to 100%.
Good luck, Gerrit Jan

What does the flashing orange light mean on my 7300 as it wont print at all


The flashing light indicates a warning state - such as low toner - but it will not stop the printer working, so there must be more than one issue if it is not printing at all. A flashing orange will be accompanied by a message on the screen to indicate which item(s) is/are in a low state.

BJC55 Printer not printing


There are some possibilities due to the above phenomena. Let's discuss about it:
1) If the POWER light is flashing green, then your printer is now warming up or performing maintenance procedure (replacing cartridge/tank) or cleaning print head, just wait a few seconds till the light stop flash. Also if the last page of a print job not done, this POWER light flashing green.
2) If the CHARGE/ERROR light is flashing orange with beep 3 times, it mean your cartridge need to be install (especially the 1st time turn on printer) or cartridge being replaced, just install the cartridge and press RESUME to continue.
3) If both POWER light is flashing green and CHARGE/ERROR light is flashing orange with beep 3 times, then your printer may facing a very serious error and maybe need a replacement.

Hope these help.

Here is a procedure I would like you to do to reset the light:

1-Power the printer on and get it to the Ready state (i.e. the light on the operator panel is on)
2-With the printer on and in the Ready state, open the front cover
3-Press and hold the Cancel button until all of the lights begin flashing up and down.
4-Release the Cancel button and close the door. The photoconductor count should now be reset

To confirm that the photoconductor page count has been reset, it is recommended that you print a
menu settings page and check the photoconductor level. Do the following:

1.With the printer at the Ready status, press the Continue button once. The Ready
light will begin flashing and one or two pages will print out.
2. Look for a section labeled Cartridge Information and locate the word Photoconductor
under this heading.
3. Confirm that the photoconductor level reading is either OK or close to 100%.
4. If the reading is low, try printing 10 - 20 pages.
5. Print the menu settings page(s) again.
6. Confirm that the photoconductor level reading is OK or close to 100%.
7. If the photoconductor reading is still low, there is a second, more detailed, procedure you
can perform to reset the count.
8. If the reading is still low after both procedures have been attempted, the printer may require service
