Just refilling the cartridge may not resolve the low toner message. Many cartridges have a sensor chip that must be reset to clear the message. Due to this, many people opt to buy replacements or refurbished cartridges that have had the sensor chip reset.

What does a blinking hard drive light mean?


A blinking hard drive light indicates hard drive activity. It means that the hard drive is performing certain operations. There are many programs running in the background that need to access the hard drive to read and write data. Whenever this happens, the hard drive indicator light blinks.
Although, if it's blinking continuously and causing the system to slow down, it could also indicate that the system is low on resources such as RAM or hard disk space or it is infected with Malware. In that case, you'll need to check your system configuration. You should run a full antivirus/antispyware scan to make sure the system is clean.

Error 10.1000 supply error


Hi there,

The HP LaserJet toner cartridge has a smart chip on the top left side. This chip tells the printer when the toner is low.

Recycled toners do not or can not reset the chip, therefore when you use a recycled toner you may get toner low messages although the toner is good.

Also, you may get the 10.10.00 error. We have devised a work around to fool the printer into not displaying the message.

Place a stip of opaqe tape or paper or the chip. When the printer detects a non-standard cartridge press the green (go) button. It will then reset the LCD to Ready.

Found this info on a recycled manufacturer site. http://www.infinityimaging.com/cgi-local/SoftCart.exe/online-store/scstore/p-2300.html?E+scstore


Post back if it is not working we will be happy to help you.
Thank you.
cheers!!

The red light is the indicator for the HDD activity , since it stop it's clear that the corrupted files were essential ones, that should have been loaded during the Windows boot process.
Your only thing left to do is to reinstall. If you're lucky you can get away with a Repair install, try it first.

My GE instajack is not working. It had a greeen signal, now it has a red signal.


Most likely, the extension unit cannot communicate with the
indicator light is solid base unit for one of the following reasons:
red • Base unit has yet to be installed. Install base unit. (Refer to
the Set Up section.)
• Extension is too far from the base unit. Relocate either the
base or extension unit to another electrical outlet. If
indicator light on extension
unit remains solid red, reprogram the link code on extension
unit


Follow these steps:
• Press and hold the button on the right side of the base
unit until the indicator light changes to solid red.
(Approximately five seconds.)
• Release the button, then the indicator light will blink orange.
This creates a new link code and places the base unit into
program mode.
• Follow steps (2) and (3) in the Additional Extension Units
section for all extension units.
• Press and release the button on the base unit to take it out of
program mode. The indicator light will change from flashing
orange to solid green.

HP Compaq d530


it all depends on the number of flashes , pause, repeat.
Since the problem did not indicate any beeps her is the following info


Power LED blinks RED 2 times, one every second, followed by a
2-second pause. = Processor Thermal Protection Activated


3 blinks 1 second apart = Processor not installed (not an indicator for a bad processor).

4 blinks 1 second apart .= Power Failure (power supply is overloaded)

Other possibilities are:
5 blinks 1 second apart No memory
6 blinks 1 second apart No graphics
7 blinks 1 second apart System board failure (detected prior to video)
8 blinks 1 second apart Invalid ROM
