when i trunn on and when i want print all ways stuck

if you see brown marks on the center top of your page then its your feed roller... hp feed rollers come out easy... Get some rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer solution and clean with a paper towel... Make sure to dry your feed rollers then put them back in... that should clear up your issue... if that still does not work you may need to replace feed rollers


If it feeds ok but gets stuck at the back then chances are your fuser is bad. The belt is most likely ripped.

We are getting a error message on my HP Office Jet 6310xi All in One printer saying: Cartridge error, Cartridfe on left must be repplaced. but we already replaced it...

pull the cartridge out and check the bottom, if it has a gob of ink it will do this. get a paper towel

and some alcohol, preferably denatured alcohol, put some of the alcohol on the paper towel.

get the cartridge and press down on the alcohol towel , press lightly several times until the bottom of

the cartridge is clean, don,t rub across it. the area is very delicate. once clean set the cartridge aside

and let it dry off for at least ten minutes. once dry, re-insert the cartridge, your printer will reset

itself and go back to normal. good luck!

Using Brother Printer HL-2040, not so many pages printed, but have some dot in pages about 3 black dots and some fade letters. what should i do to clean drum?

Remove the cartridge and look carefully at the rubber roller. You have debris stuck on the roller that needs to be removed. Get a cotton ball and dab some rubbing alcohol on it. Then run the cotton ball back and forth over the rubber roller making sure to use a clean section of the cotton ball each time. Now advance the rubber roller and repeat with a new alcohol cotton ball. Do this until you made it all the way around the rubber roller. Allow to dry for 10 minutes and then insert the cartridge back into the machine.

my track ball dont go down pls help me

Unless the ball can be removed for cleaning, the only option you have is to use pure alcohol (not 'rubbing' alcohol with water) and apply a DROP to the ball and then rotate it in all directions using a clean rag or lint-free paper towel. At first, it may cause the ball to slip further but if you repeat this several times and allow it to dry (rotate the ball a few times while drying), you should be able to remove whatever slippery contaminents are causing it to slip. If this doesn't work, there may be a dust build-up on the roller responsible for moving the cursor up and down and disassembly can't be avoided.

Hp 896 cse. The paper feed is not working.

Can you get to the pick up roller? is it putting out paper at all? Clean the roller with a cotton swab and rubbing or denatured alcohol. Sometimes paper dust will build up on the roller and it cant grab the paper. All check and see that the roller is trying to turn. RUle out mechanical failure.
