Despite the fact that Xerox Phaser 750 series printers have a small LCD screen, there are also a few indicator lights on the front panel that can provide a quick indication of errors even from across the room. Since there are a few different indications relayed by the lights, it is worth understanding what each state means. Listed below are the different indicators your Phaser will give off, what they mean and how to clear them.
Power Light is Off
If the power indicator light is off, it means your printer is powered off. It may also go off if the machine has detected an error or if the machine is malfunctioning. If this is the case, you should contact technical support for help.
Power Light is Flashing
If your power indicator is flashing, it means the printer is printing, processing or receiving a print job or that you have simply hit the menu option on the front panel. To clear it, all you need to do is wait until the print job is complete or close the menu operation by pressing the Cancel button.
Error Light is On
If the error light is on, there is something wrong with the machine that is causing the printer to be unable to operate. Look at the display screen for a more specific indication of the error. The most likely example is that your toner cartridge is low. You may wish to try removing the cartridge and shaking it to redistribute the toner, or replace it with a new one.
Error Light is Flashing
If the error indicator light is flashing, the printer has stopped printing due to a correctable error. Examples of correctable errors are paper jams or open doors. The front panel should tell you exactly what the issue is and what to do, but if it doesn’t, choose the “Info/More” option on the front panel. If the message includes an error number, consult the user manual or contact the manufacturer to figure out what the error may mean.
If an error message persists, try powering down the device and unplugging it for at least 15 minutes before restarting it. This can sometimes reset any errors and get you up and running again.
