Question about HP PSC 500 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Need carriage adjusment. Often, the platen pulls either two or more sheets or none.

When the carriage pulls in three or four sheets of paper the printer is likely to jam. After clearing it and trying to print again the printer is likely to make grindig noises in about 3 out of 4 attempts to continue printing.Apart from that, everything else is in very good condition.
Also, I would be obliged very much if someone could tell me PCL sequences wich turn on and off continuous paper printing.I am running Linux on my machine and they have only options for cut sheets of paper.

Thanks in advance:

How do u remove the roller bar that the paper feeds thru if something is stuck underneath it?


Step 1

(1) Pull off the platen knob 1.

(2) Open the access cover Assy 4 toward the front to remove.

(3) Lift up the sheet guide Assy 5 to remove.

(4) Turn the change lever 2 toward the bottom position.

(5) Insert a flat-blade screwdriver into grooves of frame (5 places for ML 321, 4 places for ML320) and twist to disengage claws of upper cover 3.

(6) Raise the front side of upper cover Assy 3 and shift toward the rear to disengage claws of frame (6 places for ML321, 5 places for ML320).

(7) Raise the upper cover Assy 3 to remove.

(8) To install, follow the removal steps in reverse order.

Note on installation:

Match the posts A at both sides of the sheet guide 5 with the arrow marks on the upper cover. Push the guide into the cover.

Step 2

(1) Open the access cover 1.

(2) Lift up the sheet guide Assy 4 to remove.

(3) Tilting the pull-up roller Assy 2 toward the front, remove it from the shaft of platen Assy 3.

(4) To install, follow the removal steps in reverse order.
Note: Remove the sheet guide Assy 4 before installing or removing the pull-up roller Assy 2.


shawn38_3.png
Step 3

(1) Open the access cover.

(2) Pull up and rotate the head clamp 1 to unclamp the printhead 2 as shown in fig. 3.3.1.

(3) Disconnect the printhead 2 from PC connector 3 and remove.

(4) To install, reverse the removal steps.

Notes on installation:

(1) Insert the printhead 2 into the PC connector 3 while pushing it against the carriage frame 4.

(2) The head clamp 1 must be securely sandwiched between printhead 2 and carriage frame 4 as

shown in fig. 3.3.2 below.

(3) Be sure to check the gap between platen and printhead (see 4).

(4) Be careful not to touch the print head while it is hot.

Important: There is a shim on the carriage frame 4, which hangs over the platen side of the frame. Be sure to replace it correctly. Improper positioning of this shim will severely affect the printhead gap.



shawn38_4.png

shawn38_5.png

shawn38_6.png

Step 4

(1) Remove the printhead (see 3.3.1 below).

(2) Open the pull-up roller cover 1.

(3) Remove the shim on the carriage frame.

(4) Loosen the screws holding the carriage assembly to the carriage frame--this allows more play between the printhead and the platen.

(5) Raise and remove the ribbon protector 2.

(6) To install, follow the removal steps in reverse order. Be sure to replace the shim in exactly the

same position as it was before disassembly.



shawn38_7.png

Step 5

(1) Remove the printhead (see 3.3.1 ).

(2) Remove the upper cover (see 3.3.1 ).

(3) Remove the pull-up roller Assy (see 3.3.3 ).

(4) Remove the ribbon protector (see 3.3.2 ).

(5) Turn the change lever 1 to the bottom position.

(6) Push in the lock levers 2 on both sides to unlock the Assy from the frame, then rotate them upward 90°.

(7) Remove the platen Assy 4 from the base frame.

(8) To install, follow the removal steps in reverse order.

Paper jammed


Hi Good day!!!
Here are some steps to remove paper jam

1. Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge to fade away before putting your hands on the metal tools inside the chassis.

2. Pin down the exact location of the jam. The three hot spots for a jam are before a sheet completely leaves the paper tray, between the feed tray and the print carriage or between the print carriage and the output tray.

3. Take off the front paper tray. If the sheet jammed around here, you should be able to see most of the paper.

4. Pull on the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Don't tug too quickly. You might rip the paper, leaving a chunk of it deeper in the machine.

5. Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed tray area and the print carriage of the all-in-one printer. Carefully remove the jammed paper from the machine.

6. Use the carriage access door to get at a jam further inside. You may need to move the print carriage out of your way to get at the jam.

7. Return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.

    I HAVE A THICK BLACK LINE THAT PRINTS ON THE BACK OF MY PAPER (VERTICALY) FOR THE FIRST THREE OR FOUR SHEETS OF PAPER THEN FADES AWAY.


    Chances are this is caused by leaking ink on the platen. As the paper passes over it each sheet mops up a bit more until it'\s all gone.
