    Exact same issue here. Everytime we turn it on it just says to restart it again. No printy = no happy.

    After hooking up and installing printer to a new computer it shows error message 004-321. I have removed the drum and all print cartridges, wiped down all the toner from any surfaces, cleaned sensors where indicated to me by Dell and still I am getting the same error. Dell suggested I buy a new printer. Any other ideas???

YES! It Worked. Man I love it when things like this work out! Thanks Gnolgnol!

Let me just elaborate however:

The "belt" is the 8 1/2" wide black rubber piece wrapped around the drums located at the back top section just near the 4 black arrows and "no hands" warning picture. I was too lazy to unscrew it to fix it so I simply used much force with the palm of my hand and rolled and pushed up and over in the direction it needed to be adjusted several times. The belt will overlap on both sides about 1/8" on both sides so make sure you go past the drum a bit to even it out on both sides.

Do you have a CD to install this printer? if you do go into MY COMPUTER where you can erase things and erase the printer and its system then shut computer off and restart then reinstall the printer using your CD to reinstall it. Some times you have to delete things and reinstall them to work.

How to clean ink absorber for canon mp237


First of all open the ink cartridge of your printer.
When the ink cartridge would move all the way over, then disconnect the power cord of your printer.
Now pull the frame of rubber from the printer and remove ink pads.
To clean ink pads you may place them in a bowl having warm water and start rubbing and squeezing them to clean it from ink.
After removal of ink, keep the pads separate for dry.
When the pads get dry completely, place them back in rubber frame.
Reinstall the rubber frame in your printer.

Hp laserjet m1522f error 5 turn off and on


Hi, Error 5 is a Scanner error. When turning the printer on, have the lid up so you can watch the scanner movement. Does it move smoothly? It should go through a warm up and you should be able to watch the scanner movement. If there is a problem with the scanner, there isn't a lot you could do except. The service manual says the scanner assembly should be replaced. If it was my printer, I would try to take a closer look at the scanner assembly and check to see if the scanner unit is bound up somewhere, or maybe a drop of 3 in 1 oil on the scanner rails. Let us know what happens.
thanks
