I changed both ink cartridges before my A940 printer was warmed up. I tried to print an alignment page and then a message came up on my screen that a cartridge was missing. I reset the color cartridge and ...


Open the top and left and right cover of printer.
There is lock system for open cover just pull the cover after removing screws.
Then You can see printer assembely inside it.
For open ink cartridges turn on the printer then ink cartridges are in middle then just pull ink cart to your direction then check.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Dell A920 cartridge stall error.


Hi, I HAD the same problem, but not anymore!! I just opened the top to expose the "inside of the printeri" and checked the long clear band at the rear behind the print head. Make sure that the clear ribbon is NOT TWISTED. There is a small metal bar with a small extended part on the far left interior of the printer. Just make sure that the slot on the clear band is fitted on that extended part. This will put the print head back "on track" This worked for me!!

Epson sx 205, can't change the cartridge


With the power on and the lid up, click on the red stop (left panel). You will notice the cartridges move to the left and then they come back and stop halfway. Afterwards you should be able to slide the cartridges manually with your hand to the larger area on the right where you could do the cartridge change. Once you've moved it to that area just the lift the cover where the arrow is.

I have forgotten how to change ink cartridge


There is a door on the front of the printer on the right corner. There is a little tab thingy on the side of the printer that you use to pull the door open. This you can do from the front, you don't need to move the printer around to get access from the side.

Pull the door down and tada, there are the ink cartridges. What a pain in the ****, took me a good 1/2 hour to find the information on the internet.

Hope this helps everyone.

Carrier jam on printer


There could be 4 possibilities.

1. Ink cartridges lids are open which is not allowing cartridges to move freely.
2. Ink cartridges carriage will not move from its original position(left) when front cover is opened
3. Encoder strip is Dirty.
4. Encoder strip is Out of position.

Solution:
1. Open the front cover and check if ink cartridges lids are properly snapped in.

2. Turn the printer off and pull out the power cable from power socket, open the front cover and manually center the ink cartridges carriage.
Clean the metallic rod inside the printer using WD40 or Kleenex from Left corner to right corner properly.

3. Cleaning the encoder strip:
a. printer should be off and disconnected from power.
b. open the front cover.
c. Using a dry, lint free cloth, pinch the encoder strip on the right-hand side of the cartridge carriage and pull your fingers across it toward the right-hand side of the printer and you can move the cartridges carriage to clean the strip completely.
d. Note: The encoder strip is a narrow band of clear plastic and can be difficult to see without direct lighting running parallel to metallic rod.
e. Close the printer and try again to print.

4. Repositioning the Encoder strip.
a. Remove the power cord from the printer.
b. Open the front cover.
c. Gently slide the ink cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer.
d. Gently move the top part of the printer belt to the right.
e. Using an index finger, gently push encoder strip down and then back up, to get it back into the slot located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier.
f. Gently press the strip first to the rear, and then forward, to ensure that it is seated correctly.
g. Manually move the ink cartridge carrier to the left, then to the right, to check the positioning of the encoder strip.
h. Once the encoder strip has been re-seated, close the scanner lid.
i. Re-connect the power cord to the printer and try again to print.

My HP Photosmart D7360 will not print black, despite changing cartridge and performing print-head cleans


I have the same problem. I just re-installed all ink cartridges into my printer from the first actual cartridges given to me with the printer and the black ink doesn't work. I contacted HP and they told me that I needed to change my black ink, after I already told them that I have tried 2 new ink cartridges in the system. I went out and bought another one thinking that this would fix the problem, and it didn't. I contacted HP again and I was told that it was the printer that was broken. The actual black ink section was faulty. Since it was a year and a month since I bought the product it was not under warranty, so nothing could be done but to buy another faulty piece of merchandise from HP. I could also service it, but that was never given a price tag. If you want my opinion don't purchase anything from HP again, I know I won't.

HP Deskjet 5550 cartridge carriage stuck


I have had this same problem a few times, not due to changing the cartiges, but following one of my kids yanking on a peice of paper as it was printing. After I tried all the unplugging and clearing and re-starting, the arm was still stuck on the left. I read on some forum (can't remember where) while the printer is off, to gently push/pull on the cartiges until they un-jam or start to move. I flet like I was going to break it, but it has worked every time.

Hope this helps osmeone else!

Change ink cartridge


I just did it a few minutes ago and it's pretty simple. Just grab the thing right in the center, above the print tray (there's a little handle) and pull the top up. The ink carts will be right in there (towards you, on the right) just pull the one you need to replace out, directly towards you, and then pop the new one in. There are little notches on it so you can't put it in backwards/upside-down or anything, and there's no latch or anything physically holding the cartridges down
