    The condition I found the machine in, is that it had no cartridges fitted, the cartridge carriage is hard over to left hand side of the rail (under the handpiece). The said error message is displayed and the two lights on each side of the "On" button (green left, red right) continually flash. Hope this helps!

    Thanks Scott...I thought it might just be a simple problem but obviously the built-in redundancy period has kicked in. The machine has hardly had any use. It's going in the bin.

    This is my first experience with FixYa. I'm impressed. The advice has saved me the time and expense of taking it to a service centre. Thanks.

Well after reading your post, i see that you have already tried all the options which were possible to fix the issue on your own.

The issue you are facing is an hardware issue which would require you to hire a repairman, the repair cost would be close to the cost of a new machine.

I would suggest you got decide and go for the new machine without wasting your time on this.

You may also call HP, they might offer you some additional discounts as in exchange of this one.


Hope this helps

All the Best

Here is power cycle procedure do it a couple of times:

1. Verify that the printer is on. Unplug the unit from power and disconnect the USB port.
2. Wait two minutes.
3. Plug in the power cord only.
4. Disconnect power cord again.
5. Repeat steps 1 to 4 twice.
6. On third time, after plugging power, reconnect the connection to the computer.
7. Check if it works.

If it does not work do the following:

Press and hold buttons # and 6 on the front panel keypad, at the same time plug in the
power cable.

If it still does not work you can recall the service menu by pressing the Right Arrow until the option comes up.
Press ok and search the option for resetting the RAM

If it still does not work, then a part is faulty, call the number listed on the owner manual, or contact HP support.

    On some officejets, you have to press # and 9 instead of # and 6 on the front panel keypad, while you plug in the power cable.

    try both ways.

    That is the procedure to reset all printer settings.

Step 1
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=c00489814

Step 2:

Try to reset the printer:

- unplug the printer power cable without turning it off and press # & 9 button together. While holding that two buttons, plug the power cable in, once u see any message on the screen, release the button. Now some situation it may turn the printer off automatically however you press the on buttong and turn it back on.

Step 3: try to unplug it from any surge protector and then try to put into any different wall socket directly and see.

If all doesnot work then either call hp for upgrade or decide for a new one.

Hi There,

Thanks for you using FixYa.
The problem can be solved by repairing Motor/Roller.
It needs to have a shaft at both ends (dual shaft), and it takes some soldering and replacement of the black round plastic gizmo with tiny fingers around it back onto the shaft of the replacement motor as well as the tiny worm gear and the little green circuit board (has to be soldered onto the new motor).

You can order it cheaply at www.allelectronics.com and specify the above motor model but be sure to select the dual shaft one.

Regards
Ellin

Per HP, this error message indicates an "internal condition" and requires reset. In order to reset as they direct, please do the following:

  1. Disconnect the Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable from the back of the product, but leave the product turned on.
  2. Open the cover of the product and remove the print cartridges.
  3. Close the cover and wait for the Insert Ink Cartridges message to display.
  4. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product and wait for one minute.
  5. Reconnect the power cord. If the product does not automatically turn on, press the Power button.
  6. Open the cover and reinsert the print cartridges.
  7. Close the cover. If prompted, print a calibration page.
  8. Reconnect the USB cable, and try to print a print job from the computer.
However, it sounds from your description as though there may be more to this problem, as you have indicated "can't fit cartridges". As this seems to indicate that perhaps you have no cartridges in the machine at present, please post further details.
If this information assists you in resolving the problem, please take a moment to rate the solution at a "FixYa" level. If you do not feel that you can rate at a "FixYa", please post back with more information regarding what has occurred subsequently and/or more details regarding the situation, and I will gladly help you until we have reached a definitive solution. Thank you for using and rating FixYa!

    Yes, this information is quite helpful. I have spent quite a bit of time researching this issue, in addition to the fact that I have a great deal of experience with this equipment. The fact that the lights are flashing as they are is, I believe, due to the fact that the cartridges are not in place.



    As you know, the cartridge access door is on the right, while the home position of the cartridge carrier is on the left. With the machine turned on, raising the cartridge access door should cause the cartridge carrier to move to the right so that you can access the carrier to place cartridges. I will post a couple of links here for you, for the purpose of illustration, as the graphics are often easier to understand than endless strings of text.



    In regard to the placement of cartridges, and the typical movement of the cartridge carrier, please see: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/docum.... Additionally, if you use the HP Director software, it should assist you in determining the nature of potential issues with the printer. If it is not installed, it could prove very useful to you in this situation.



    If the carrier does not move to the right when the cartridge access door is raised, with the unit powered on, it may be necessary to do what is termed a "partial reset". This is documented at: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/docum.... Basically, for the 4255, you would remove the power from the back of the machine; hold down the # and 3 keys while plugging it back in; then release the keys after the machine powers back up. Hopefully we will be able to troubleshoot this matter before resets are required.



    Do you know how long the machine was in the state you described, and were any of the doors, covers, or panels left open, or are they open now? Thank you, and please know that I will continue to work with you until we have narrowed down the reason for your issue if we haven't located it yet!

    NOTE:If Removal and Installation instructions are needed for reference during any repairs performed, refer to the HP Designjet 500 and 800 Series Service Manual available on the Computer Care Web site for review or download. Troubleshooting steps If any of the troubleshooting steps listed below solve the problem, attempt to verify printer functionality (instructions listed below). If functionality is verified, no additional parts should be replaced.
      NOTE: The printer's current firmware revision must be A.02.04 or higher for a new Service Station to work properly. If firmware is lower than A.02.04, download the newest available firmware before continuing with the remainder of this document.
      1. Turn the printer off, then on to verify error. If no error attempt to verify functionality.
      2. If the error appears or problems persist, continue with the remaining steps.
      3. Follow the steps directly below to unlock the Carriage from the Service Station:
        1. Highlight the Set-Up menu and press the ENTER button.
        2. Press the UP arrow and ENTER buttons simultaneously and press the ENTER button.
        3. Highlight Service Utilities and press the ENTER button.
        4. Highlight Unlock Carriage and press the ENTER button.
        5. Unplug the power cord from the printer.
      4. Manually move the Carriage assembly out from the Service Station area and check for obstructions (remove as needed).
        NOTE: If you are unable to release the Carriage by the previous process, remove the right end-cover and locate the main Service station gear (as pictured below in Figure 1) and rotate it counter clockwise approximately four revolutions. The Carriage assembly should now be free from the Service station. Figure 1: Service Station Gear

        3. Disconnect the power cord from the printer.
        4. Remove the right end-cover from the printer.
        5. Open the top cover and manually move the Carriage to the left so that it is not over the Service Station (refer to Step 3 for instructions).
        6. The Service Station flag should be at about a 45-degree angle as pictured below in Figure 2.
        Figure 2: Service Station flag correctly positioned
        bpp90134-2.gif

        2. If the flag is not at a 45-degree angle, press in gently on the bottom of the gray and rotate the bottom of the flag to the right (toward the back of the printer) until the top of the flag clips into the tab on the Service Station. The flag should stay at about a 45-degree angle.
        3. Plug in the power cord and turn the printer on.
        4. If no error appears, attempt to verify functionality.
        5. If the error reappears continue with the remaining steps.
        6. Turn the printer off and disconnect the power cord.
        7. Replace the Service Station assembly (refer to pg. 8-52 of the HP Designjet 500 and 800 Series Service Manual).
          NOTE: The printer firmware must be upgraded to A.02.04 or higher for the new Service Station to work. The new Service Station does not have an Aerosol fan and older firmware will check for the Aerosol fan, thus causing another system error.
          1. Following replacement, turn the printer on and verify functionality as instructed below.

Error 1200


Error code: 1200
But it is the same as the Lexmark.

This error code is commonly associated with the Dell 922 printer. Usually you might see the cartridge moving front and back and slamming itself against the printer. You need to tighten the strings located on the back of the printer and then it should work fine

Clean the carriage rail. This is the round chrome piece that the carriage assy that holds the cartridges rides on. Use a paper towel that is slightly moist.
Be sure to not force anything. Unplug the printer after you get the carts in the middle. Move them to one side and clean and then move them to the other and repeat.


Lift up the scanner to reveal the cartridge compartment; under the chrome rod on which the cartridges run there are two small gaps about 8cm apart. In the right one should sit the paper sensor which is a small black rod that hooks downwards; the problem I had was my sensor had bent up and out of the gap so all I had to do was bend it gently back into position using a small screwdriver.

Hope you get it to go.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

I have an HP officejet 4200 series, all-in-one. I have an error reading of "remove and check right cartridge". I have tried this and even loading a new cartridge. I have tried turning off and...


Here is a list of steps you can take to clear this "Remove and check cartridge" error on HP printers. They generally involve cleaning the contacts between the cartridge and the carriage in the printer.

Some people think this error is related to hard-coded expiration dates that are encoded on the cartridges themselves. HP will not confirm or deny this (I personally find it unlikely, but you never know...) In this case, performing a partial reset of the printer may clear the error.

Good luck!
