    I changed the cartridges and now the cartridge carrier is stuck and the power light and resume light are flashing, the only thing that I can see that may be causing this is the the black square box bits in front of the cartridges are lifted up, this has made removing the re-inserting the cartridges very difficult, can you help me

I just ran into this problem myself and whats happening is your ink cartridges are stuck on the black thing below them (i think its called a service station).

what u have to do is either take it apart which i did and to bottom right of the service station is a white gear with a pretty small gear below it leading into the service box so what u wanna do is turn the large gear clockwise, it might be a bit hard to push because it is obviously jammed and once it turn you will see a black rod moving towards the back of the printer keep on turning it until the black box thing (service station) drops down and frees your ink cartridges. once u turn it on i had troubles getting it to work because it was all messed up so u might have to reset the printer after this.

alternatively you might be able to reach the spindle u have to turn without taking the printer apart i haven't tried it because i just finished running my wires and restarting my printer to be bothered. anyways theres a little opening at the bottom right of the printer and u might be able to get a small flat head screwdriver in there to turn it. i wouldn't advise it because theres a lot of small boards u can scratch and damage in the process.

best of luck

U will have to get that lid shut before the carriage will move...try a screwdriver and push it down...otherwise the machine will have to be taken apart.

    These problems sound like the service station is not moving for some reason or another. Could be a failed motor or it could just need to be cleaned. Excessive ink buildup that drys and hardens can hinder free flowing service station movement which will give you a carriage jam error etc. Disassemble machine and clean service station. We do this repair for $45

Lights are flashing on printer and it will not print . the voice says there is a problem with the printer. I did the alignment process but the voice keeps saying there is a problem. I took both cartridges...


There 3 light on the printer that able to indicate to user when problem occur. Which is the light u mean here?
37d307a.jpg
1st button light blink rapidly = the printer may be out of paper, so load more paper and press the 1st button itself to continue. Or may be paper jam is occur, so clear the paper jam and press the 1st button light itself to continue.

If 1st button light blink slowly = mean the cartridge carriers are stuck, so raise the scanner unit and remove any object blocking the path of the cartridge carrier, make sure the cartridge are closed and installed properly, then lift the scanner unit, gently push the scanner support towards the cartridge carriers, and carefully lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed. After that press the 1st button itself to continue.

If 2nd LED light blinking = the color cartridge need to be replaced soon.

If 2nd LED light is ON = the color cartridge need to be replaced immediately.

If 3rd LED light blinking = the black cartridge need to be replaced soon.

If 3rd LED light is ON = the black cartridge need to be replaced immediately.

I get a clicking noise when I print on a Dell 3115


The print cartridge carrier could be stuck and clicking agains the wall or gears might be clicking.

If your machine doesn't work at all, open the cartridge cover, take the cartridges out, close the cover, wait for it to call the carriage carrier to the side, then turn it off, unplug wait 2 minutes, plug it back in, turn it on, open the cover, install the cartridges back, close the cover and try printing again.

If that doesn't solve the problem follow these steps

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
If the problem still remains
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

After you have done all the suggestions, whats the status of your printer, are you still unable to print? is the printer still just clicking? are you able to remove the cartridges from the machine or is it just clicking?


If your not able to do the suggestions or the cartridges won't come to the center, your printer has a mechanical hardware problem that will require service.

HP LaserJet 1320 folds over top left corner of every page printed


I see this problem alot after a paper jam occurs and someone has pulled the stuck paper out. There is probably a piece of paper stuck in the printer somwhere. If you open the front toner door and take the cartridge out, you will see a roller at the bottom front. DON"T touch the roller but take it out. You may find the paper there!
