Delete the print job on your computer and then restart the printer. Try printing from a different application. If it prints fine from a different app then it is possible that the problem application has had an update that does not work, or if you have never printed from that application you may have a compatilbity issue.

If other applications cause a problem, try to print from another computer, if others are connected to the printer. If other printers can print then it is likely that the print driver is corrupted and you will need to uninstall and reinstall the printer drivers.

Our Data light keeps flashing and the printer won't print. How do we get the data light to stop flashing so we can use our copier again with our computers?


Sounds like a bad print job stuck in a print spooler.
Turn off copier. Go around to all computers that print to it and open the print queue. delete all print jobs. reboot each PC. Power up copier and see if it clears

The light on the right is flashing red.

d40a83b.jpgCancel button
0de392d.jpgPrint cartridge status light
84e6616.jpgResume button and light
e1e1095.jpgPower button and light

- If the power light is flashing it means that your printer may be receiving data.
- If the resume light is flashing you may be out of paper, or you may have a paper jam, you may be printing a two sided document by hand and the first side has finished printing.
- If the print cartridge status light is flashing that means the top cover may be open, of there may be a problem with one of the cartridges.
- If all of the lights are flashing the printer may need to be reset.

Hope this helps.

Not responding to PC instructions to print data


Hi,

You need to load the PRINTED ALIGNMENT PAGE on the scanner glass, then press on "OK" button. It should start scanning the alignment page. That way, you are completing the PROCESS of ALIGNMENT.

Thank you so much.

If you're using this printer on a print server then do the following

Turn Printer Off
Disconnect Data Cable
Press & Hold Feed button whilst switching on
Keep Holding Feed Button until test label is complete and light has gone red
Switch Printer off

Reset your Print Server
Plug Data Cable back into printer
Switch Printer on

This should start it printing (unless there are jobs inthe print queue, if there are then they will need to be deleted before printing will commence)
