On the C1100 Cover B is the top cover, however B open error could be the Top, Front or Fuser cover as the microswitches are all interconnected. First check each cover for broken or missing actuators (these look like "fins" and operate the microswitches when the cover is closed). Next check the microswitches havent been dislodged and operate using a piece of stiff card. As a last resort the switches can be shorted out to fool the printer into thinking that the cover is closed (not recommended).

Cover "B" should be on the back of the printer. when you open the main back door at the bottom there is a little flap that will fall down, this is a sliht design flaw as you have to make sure that this is in an upright position before closing the main back door. from past experience its usualy hit and miss at getting it to work unfortunatly

hope this hepls

Epson c1100 e door open


Just solved the same problem. It is a very slight misalignment of the two rollers behind door E. I closed door E holding the vertical bar below the handle and just 'jiggled' it slightly from side to side, and it latched closed. Paper jam fixed, yippee!!

Epson Acculaser c1100 ink blead


First rule out that it is a paper issue by trying a different type of paper

If that dosnt work
check if the gradation setting is too small when printing graphics. On the Basic Setting menu in the printer driver, click More Settings, adjust the gradation setting by sliding the Contrast slider bar

If that dosnt work
Clean the print head .
see steps at the bottom

If that dosnt work
It is starting to look like drum/photoconductor problem, this may need to be replaced (the most expensive solution)



Follow the steps below to clean the printer head.
r_1.gif Open the cleaner cover on the right side of the printer. Then, open cover A. d580095.gif
r_2.gif Pull the blue lever on the right inside of the printer. d580096.gif
r_3.gif Move the blue cleaner slowly in and out once. d580097.gif
r_space.gif r_note.gif Note: r_space.gif r_space.gif Move the cleaner completely in and out. Otherwise, the printer may not be cleaned effectively. r_4.gif Push back the blue lever on the right inside of the printer. d580098.gif
r_5.gif Close cover A, then the cleaner cover. d580099.gif

The red lite indicates one of the following needs to be looked at:

Cover open (Front cover) Close the front cover.

Cover open (Jam clear cover) Close the jam clear cover of the fuser unit.

Memory full - Press the go button.

Print overrun - Press the go button.

Clean drum unit - Clean the corona wire.

C1100 B Open error


Hi,

Often, this would just be the sensor falsely thinking that the cover B is still open. You could try checking if the cover is slightly misaligned hence the tab is not triggering the senor/switch. Or try opening and closing and making sure that you hear/feel the latching of the switch.

Better yet, perhaps the parts diagram may be of better help. You would probably be interested likewise in the service manual.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Xerox phaser 7400DN right side "A" door adjar


YOu will need to replace the cover. There is a small tab or a magnet that actuates a switch. If its a tab type cover, the tab snapped off, if a magnetic cover the magnet has fallen off.

Flashing light


Here is what HP has on the subject of the triangle light flashing:
c00028322.gif 1 - Attention Light 2 - Ready Light 3 - Go Light Figure 2: Printer light key c00028323.gif 1 - Symbol for light off 2 - Symbol for light on 3 - Symbol for light blinking
c00028328.gif Door open, media out, no print cartridge, or media jam

The printer is in an error state that requires operator intervention or help. Check the following:
  • The print cartridge door is completely closed.
  • Media is loaded.
  • The print cartridge is correctly installed in the printer.
  • There is no media jam.

Figure 8: Paper jam c00028328.gif 13.JJ.NT JAM IN TRAY 1

13.JJ.NT JAM IN TRAY X

The Attention LED is blinking. Check paper loading then open and close top cover.

When there is a jam in tray 1, verify the paper is loaded correctly, open and close the top cover. Pressing GO is ignored.

When there is a jam in tray X, verify the paper is loaded correctly, open and close the top cover. Pressing GO is ignored. These are the error explanations for just the flashing triangle light, there are many more, but none for just the flashing triangle.

If the light pattern is different let me know (other lights on as well)
-Hope this helps.

B door open


There are two switches, so if you changed the one that was working....

Possible parts affected could be
- cover top
- cover fuser
- cover front assembly
- the switch
1) check the condition of the cover - top, front assembly and cover fuser closed?
2) on the cover top there is an "actuator", a plastic bit, which presses down on the switch assembly top - is that plastic bit broken, bent or deformed?
3) on the cover front assembly there is also an "actuator", check this
4) and of course same for the fuser cover
5) top cover, check the switch, disconnect the switch (P116-1) and press/release it - does that make a difference. If not replace switch
6) same procedure with the switch (P115-1) for front cover.
