Printer Repair Questions? Ask IT Technicians for Answers ASAP
Before we begin, I want to clarify a issue, as this is a online site, I can only suggest what you can do to fix the problem, but it is not possible for us to repair your printer or replace any parts, if needed.
Yes, that is what I mean. Can you tell me, if you are getting the error message on the printer screen or computer ?
Sorry, I do not understand your reply.
Is it showing for a long time ?
OK try the following and let me know, if you have not tried it yet.
Remove the power cord from the printer
Wait for 10 mins.
Reconnect the power cord and let me know, what happens.
OK, we will try other steps, if this step fail.
Can you tell me, which red light is flashing ?
OK, now press the power button to turn off the printer and then turn it on after few secs.
Press the copy button and let me know, what do you see on the printer screen ?
Please try to make a copy of any document or photo and let me know.
I asked you to make a copy of a document, why did you try to print from the PC ?
Thanks, ***** ***** what I wanted to know. Now, as you are facing the problem while copying, it means the problem is related with the printer parts and most probably the new cartridge is damaged to low temerature, replace the cartridge should solve the problem. This is not rare problem, this can happen due to low temp. in winter, while it was stored in the store or home. As this is a manufacturing fault, you should get a free replacement from the store.
You can, but I don;t think it will solve the problem. Try one thing, get new black cartridge and replace the color cartridge from the store, just tell them, the new color cartridge is not working, they should replace it free of cost, as most of the cartridges have a 7 days warranty.
Do you get the same message ?
Can you try to make a copy.
Are you getting that message, again ?
I got some more information about this problem, can you check the scanner lamp and let me know, if it is lit or not ?
Thanks, ***** ***** done a littl reserch on this problem and found out another aspect. This problem can be caused due to problem is scanner mechanism also. As this is a all in one printer, fault in one part will cause problem in performing other operations. You can try the last soution, which you can try at home, if the problem persist then, you have to repair the printrer.
Follow these steps to perform a partial reset:
Disconnect the power cord from the rear of the product.
Press and hold the # ***** 3 keys while you simultaneously reconnect the power cord to the rear of the product.
Make a color copy of any document by pressing the Start Copy Color button on the control panel.
This is the last solution, which you can try at home, as the problem do not get solved, I will recommend you to repair the printer. But, honestly speaking, it will be better to get a new printer, as this printer model is out of date and the repairing cost of this printer will be more than the price of a new printer.
This is a hardware fault, if you want to repair the printer at home then, let me know. I will try to help. I told you to repair the printer, because that is solution for this problem and without any experience, it will be difficult for you the repair the printer at home. If you still want to repair the printer at home then, I will definately help you, but remember I can only give you the steps and you have do the job.
All our conversation is already in your email, OK let me check the for the service manual, because without that you will not able to dismatle the printer completely and without doing that, you will not able to repair the printer.
Yes, let me check, if it is still available online or not and I will let you know in few mins.
I am extremely sorry, I will not be able to help you, because I have found a link to download the service manual, but they are charging $60 for the manaul, I don't think buying the manual for the repair will be economical idea, as you will get a refurbished printer in that price. First, you have to get that manual and then you have to buy parts to repair the printer.
Thanks and Happy New Year in advance.
