12 Printer Open Error
hanger queen operational for my son. Machine was
inherited and I do not know prior history. I can
my main machine as source of parts to test
non-working printer. Did not find these symtoms
in your FAQ list.
When non-working printer
is turned on, machine goes thru warm up cycle,
and some motor whurls for short period, then
I get Printer Open message even though
case is firmly closed. If my recollection is
correct, at one time I did get it to print a test
page, but it never printed anything from computer.
Today, I turned on unit without a paper tray
installed. Machine alternatively flashed, paper out
and machine open. When I installed tray, machine
said "ready," then soon after said "machine open"
and then started odd off-on cycling like power
supply was failing. Liquid Crystal display seemed
to loose contrast.
Any suggestions welcome, particularly of a disgnostic nature.
