This could be a bad or loose switch or interlock. This unit may use a photo type of switch and it can fail or become obstructed.

    One thing to remember about printers is that they are always on if they are plugged into the power. Unplug it from the wall, wait about 30 seconds and plug it back in to see if it resets.

I've got a samsung top loader washing machine, it's giving me a DE error code. The door is closed and the message only comes when it's about time to spin

DE = Door Error
• Check the Door-Lock SW terminal connections and contacts.
• Bring the probe of tester into contact with two terminals of Door-Lock SW.[dE Error]

What Samsung is attempting to say is: check the door lock assembly, your machine will not spin if it "thinks" the door is open...

Downloaded drivers for a new Samsung M2830DW and will not print. Computer does not recognize printer. Help???

Some times the front usb port arnot work. try to connect the /replace the usb cable to the usb port mounted on motherboard(back side panel of pc), It also may happen the usb port may disabled due to virus. Also you can unistall the driver during power OFF of the printer after uninstall successful power ON the printer, it will show NEW HARDWARE FOUND at the right right bottom of the pc screen ,If you OS is win 7 and connected to internet the driver automatically installed, otherwise you can load the driver cd and install the driver.

Also it can be checked at control panel-add hardware.

My Samsung colour xpression keep telling this message "The door is open" and doesn't let me to copy.

You have not mentioned the model. However you can download the SAMSUNG EASY PRINTER MANAGER which can show which door is opened. The door has a leaver which close the switch inside the printer to acknowledge the door is closed, either the lever broken or mis-aligned. You can check it with a insulated plastic knife pushing the sensor switch.
hope the above may get you some idea.

I have a 5 month old samsung steam front loader that gives an error message of d5 . What does it mean and how do I fix it

the door is not sensing that it is closed. open it and re close the door again, make sure it is closed all the way, if it is and it still gives you this error, unplugg the machine, close and open the door again, and plug it back in and try again. if this doesn't work, you'll need to have a repairman take a look at your washer.

Hi there remove the cartridge and clean the internal part. Then insert the ink cartridge and try. If you face same problem then reset the Printer and turn off for 5 minutes. Now again turn on and let me know the result.
