Carefully and I mean carefully spray some WD-40 into the elbows of the hinges. Carefully work the lid down and up until it is . Do not overspray into scanning area. Cover with a towel if necessary.

How do I replace color cartridge in HP 7410 all in one


Hi
open the printer lid (with power on) and wait for the cartridges to move into 'change position'. Then remove/replace cartridge(s) and close the lid.

The deck lid is in the up position and won't go flat. it was raised to add ink.


Look for a leg that's holding the lid in the open position. You'll have to press it to allow the leg to slide, and the lid come down.

Best regards,

Hp photosmart 3210 says carriage jam but there is none


Try turning the printer off, opening the lid and if you can either grab the carridge or it's drive belt, move it all the way to the far (right hand) end and close the lid. power it up. The action of the printer re-setting the carridge position should make it either free whatever debris may be jamming it or simply sort itself - out. If the carridge moves very freely, the drive belt/gearbox may be damaged.
If this doesn't help, it may be time to look for a new printer ?
hope this helps.

After installing re-filled ink cartridges, both color and back & white, the printer message that shows ink level still shows low level ink? How do we resolve?


Hello,

Try this procedure:
1. Open printer lid so cartridges move to center of carriage.
2. Lift clamp and remove black or color cartridge from the holder.
3. Place cartridge on table with copper contact strip facing you.
4. Carefully place a strip of clear plastic tape over the four contacts on the upper left corner of the cartridge.
5. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position.
6. Open lid and remove cartridge again. Remove tape from left side and place tape over four contacts at upper right corner of cartridge.
7. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position again.
8. Open lid again, remove cartridge, remove tape.
9. Reinstall cartridge and close lid.
Printer will now recalibrate. Once the process is complete the ink level meter should be reading full again.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Printer lid wont shut


Make sure you have successfully seated the cartridges you replaced. They may be preventing the lid from closing.

Top of printer is stuck in the open position showing cartridges


i had the same problem: the acess cover was locked in the open position. i disassembled the whole lot including hinges( not a good advice). try some silicone spray( no mineral oil, but maybe cooking oil) directly into the hinge and bring some movement into the lid. there are no gears or latches that can lock the hinges.

My printer keeps saying Cover Open and won't let me do anything else


Hi All printers have a protruding piece of plastic on the cover / lid, when out of place it tells the printer the cover is open

When you close lid it is inserted into main frame which tells the printer that the lid is closed.

Look for this it may be damaged. If so roll a small piece of paper and insert ito the recepticle hole.

It will trick printer that the lid is now closed.

You will need to remove it each time you need to change inks etc...

Good Luck!
