Hello! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed printer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. What's the model of your printer?

Do you have windows xp, vista, or 7, or 8, or mac computer?

If this is an all-in-one printer, are you still able to make a copy on the printer (not print from the computer)?

When you are available, please reply back at the box below to continue. Thank you,

What happens when you put a document or photo facedown on the printer's glass, then press the Black button or Color button? Thank you.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Nothing

Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 2 years ago.
Can you turn off printer, then disconnect power cord from printer for a couple of minutes, then reconnect, then turn on, then see if you can make a copy again. Thank you.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Still nothing

Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 2 years ago.

Thank you.

I've already looked at that website before I contacted you.

the only light that is on is the C light

Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 2 years ago.
Sorry, it seems there may be issue with the Color ink. Can you take out both ink catridges for a minute, then reinstall then see if you can make a copy, thanks.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Still nothing.

Lots of positive noises as the printer sets itself up but ultimately nothing.

Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 2 years ago.
I'm sorry, I think it's hardware issue, but let me open the issue to other experts for any other suggestion. Thank you.
