Says ready, error light blinking, vertical non-print line
The green Ready light indicates the printer is ready to print, but the orange Error light is blinking (slow blink). When I print a document, there is a vertical line, 2 mm thick, about 1.5 inches in from the left-hand side where the printout is lighter, as if there wasn't enough toner along that line. Toner levels are fine. All colors are affected equally.

To fix this error is much easier than it looks. Unplug the printer power. Move the ink cartridge cradle to the left. Over to the right you will see a small pad about 1cm square. This pad and the area around should be covered with ink. Get a cloth and press down on this pad - it's not fixed so should come away with the cloth, otherwise use tweezers gently. Squeeze the pad several times between your thumb and forefinger while inside the microfibre cloth to remove ink build up. Then when not much ink comes out on the cloth, clean the area in the printer around the pad so that looks free from ink too. Then position the pad back in place, move the cradle back into position, plug in and switch on - should work fine now.
This problem is mainly happens to all inkjet printers. If your printer print blank pages then please at least once go to official site of Canon and check whether there is any printer/scanner drivers update is available or not. If yes then download it. Also check your ink cartridges. Because if there is no print on paper that means your ink might be dry.Sometimes it clog the print head. If your ink cartridges get dry change it. Or you should clean your printer's print nozzle by using printer's control panel. I hope all these suggestions helps you. If doesn't then watch Canon MX922 Manual English
Make sure you should remove shipping tape from the ink cartridge. These taps are used to protect printer during shipping but you have to remove it before starting printing. Beacuse these taps prevent the ink to entering in print head. If you will not found shipping tape in your printer then there is terr off strip, remove it. The tear off strip seals the the vent holes on the top of the cartridge to prevent it from drying out on the shelf or during shipping.
After ensuring that the shipping tape has been removed, run the printer's "Head Cleaning" utility to prime the cartridge, then print a test page.

When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.
How does the bulb look? Is it bright or kind of dim. The bulb warming error is designed to halt use of the machine until the scanner bulb reaches the correct output level. As these are basically a flourescent tube, they will dim over time and at a certain point they will not generate enough light to enable proper scanning. If the bulb is dim, it will require replacement.
Excuse me--but I would like hp to have a look at this series and come out with a statement.
I did call someone in computer repair i think he said they cannot fix it (I don't remember that part)--but (this I do recall) that it probably needed a sensor to be replaced.
I have another bone to pick with hp--revealing: I did use the quick set up format and did not watch any dvd s on it if they gave them--
one thing I've guessed from all of this--there are several colors that get used up awfully fast, and yellow is one of them--even when we have our default set for black. double check yourselves: I believe that their nice black is created with yellow and other colors as well as the black cartridge.
Since I cannot say whether this was revealed in any of the handouts or an instructional video, if there was one--I don't know that they didn't tell this outright.
To be truly user friendly--I don't think that sort of information should be so buried that a casual user wouldn't know that.
(Sure it makes what they more impressive if you don't know how they do it, but I'd like to think they want us to choose easily what colors we are using, especially when printing 'black' ink!)
