Question about HP Printers & Copiers

The printer won't restart after replacing the ink cartridges. The screen says that the cartridge is jammed but I can't see anything in the way. It seems as if the alignment is messed up.

Bottom Two Lights Flashing


Was printing recently and paper tray ran empty. Then cartridges jammed to the right side and bottom two lights flashed continuously, in spite of disconnecting power, restart, etc. Finally, in attempt to change ink cartridges, pushed down on housing for ink cartridges and heard a click. They were jammed in the far right position. Restarted printer and all worked fine. Not very techy, but it worked!

Hi, I have the Canon Pixma MX310 and I tried to replace the ink cartridge but I messed i up and I still don't know how to replace it... I think it's error 5100 or something because it says it on...


Installing ink cartridges:
Make sure that the machine is turned on, lift the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover) with both hands, then pull the Scanning Unit Support (A) down into place.Take out a new cartridge from its casing and gently remove the orange protective tape in the direction of the arrow.Note: - Do not attempt to reattach the protective tape once you have removed it.do not touch the gold electrical contacts or the print head nozzles after removing the protective tape.Insert the ink cartridge into the ink cartridge holder.- Black: the left slot- Color: the right slot*
  1. *One black cartridge and one color cartridge must be installed in the machine in order for the printer to operate. It does not matter if the capacities (Standard or High) do not match.

  2. Push up on the front of the cartridge until it locks into place. (A click sound will be heard when the cartridge is locked in place.)Confirm that the ink cartridges are installed properly.OR

  3. <1> The ink cartridge is not installed properly.

    <2> The ink cartridge is installed properly.

  4. Fold the scanning unit support and close the scanning unit (printer cover).

  5. Wait until the preparatory operation is complete; it takes about one to two minutes.
Removing Ink Cartridges:
  1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the scanning unit (printer cover). The ink cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.

  2. Press down on the semi-circular tab to release the cartridge and then remove it.
  3. Remove and replace each cartridge individually. Or, remove the second cartridge after the first has been removed.

  4. Fold the scanning unit support and close the scanning unit (printer cover).

Well, here is the proper way of fixing or troubleshooting that paper jam error in your printer

Open the printer access door and remove both of the ink cartridge, then remove also the printhead, after that close the printer access door, without those parts. Then it will show a message in the printer screen, "Printhead is missing or has come loose" or "Printhead Not Detected" Install the printhead, just the printhead without the ink cartridges. After that close the printer access door. Then it will show you a message"Ink cartridges is not installed,install ink cartridges". then open again the printer access door, then install the black ink cartridge without the color ink cartridge. then close the printer access door, then message must be " Color ink cartridge is not installed, install color ink cartridge" then install the color ink cartridge." the message must be,"New printhead is detected calibration require, load paper and press start"

Thats the way of overiding the paper jam error message of your kodak all in one printer
hope this will help you guys

Red light flashing, And little cartridge symbol on printer screen,


Check the ink levels, and that there is not a paper jam.
if nothing of those two, try uninstalling and re-installing printer drivers. sometimes you can unplug the printer for 20-30 minutes. which may enable it to reset to it,s default settings. if this does,nt help. refer to the user manual.
good luck Mike @ Compurepair.
