Hi,

Down inside the paper chute there is a little arm orlatch. When you put paper into the printer, the paper pushes down on thisarm. This activates a sensor that tells there is paper in theprinter. The arm is very thin and made of cheap plastic. If you tryto use too thick of paper, or someone forces paper down into the printer, theycan bend the plastic arm off to the side. If it catches on the side andsticks, the printer will think there is paper inside of it all the time. It will then get a paper jam error, even though it is able to run a piecethrough during the initial turn on. If you look down in the paper chuteand the arm is stuck off to the side, try to get some tweezers or thin pliersand gently tweak the arm back into the middle of the opening.

4TH LIGHT FROM THE TOP KEEPS COMING ON LEXMARK E232


What this light sequence means that the printer has a paper jam.

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.

Paper jam removed but printer continues to show paper jam and thus does not work


is there an "OK" button on the printer, or a button with a flashing green or orange light? if so, that's probably all you need to hit. Also, if you have a printer utility program open, it should have a resume option or something of that nature.
Otherwise, the tried and true method of "turn everything off and turn it back on" may do the trick.

My HP 610C printer yellow light is blinking after the paper is taken in. The power light is steady. Therafter the yellow light blinks continuosly. Please help.


Follow each of these steps until the problem is resolved:

  • Remove the paper from both paper trays.
  • Press the power button once. Wait a moment for the paper jam to clear.
  • If printing labels, verify that a label did not become detached while passing through the printer. If the paper jam was not resolved, continue on to the next steps.
  • Remove the rear access door.
  • Remove the paper jam through the opening at the back of the printer.
  • Replace the rear access door.
  • Reload the paper into the paper In tray.
  • Print the document.

The red light is blinking and it doesn't print.


There are actually some certain meaning on the red light and green light showing different information to user. The summaries are:
1) Green On, Red Off = Printer Ready.
2) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Fast-Flashing = Printer warm up.
3) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Off = Printer off-line.
4) Green Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Processing Data.
5) Green Off, Red On = Cover Opened, Toner Empty or Developer Unit / Drum unit missing.
6) Green Off, Red Fast-Flashing = Paper Jam or waiting for jam reset.
7) Green Off, Red Slow-Flashing = Paper Empty or Paper tray is not inserted.
8) Green Off, Red Off = Printer power is off.
9) Green Very-Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Printer in sleep mode.
10) Green (any condition above), Red Slow-Flashing = Toner low or paper empty.

So what is your printer condition? Better know what is going on your printer so can solve the problem.

1st button light blink rapidly = the printer may be out of paper, so load more paper and press the 1st button itself to continue. Or may be paper jam is occur, so clear the paper jam and press the 1st button light itself to continue.

If 1st button light blink slowly = mean the cartridge carriers are stuck, so raise the scanner unit and remove any object blocking the path of the cartridge carrier, make sure the cartridge are closed and installed properly, then lift the scanner unit, gently push the scanner support towards the cartridge carriers, and carefully lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed. After that press the 1st button itself to continue.

If 2nd LED light blinking = the color cartridge need to be replaced soon.

If 2nd LED light is ON = the color cartridge need to be replaced immediately.

If 3rd LED light blinking = the black cartridge need to be replaced soon.

If 3rd LED light is ON = the black cartridge need to be replaced immediately.

Printer problem


Un plug it from the wall. During this time go to your printer spool directory. Normally in windows this is:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\Spool
or C:\WINDOWS\System\Spool

You can always do a search for a folder called 'Spool' if you cannot find it. It will be in a similar directory to the above examples. Select all the files in the Spool folder and delete them.

Now turn the printer back on and wait for any lights to stop flashing before retrying printing. If they continue to blink, its either got a hardware fault or the ink is low

Xante 1200, paper jam front. Red light is blinking without a paper jam.


PROBLEM: Paper Jam. XANTE 1200, Tabloid size, B&W, Printer —Red light blinking fast indicating paper jam upfront. If you checked everything, trays, ink cartridge etc., and see no paper jam anywhere, take the top cover off and look inside the (head) for the jammed paper! This printer is problem free. It has given us the best service for many years.
