How do you clean the copper parts of the cartridge

Turn the printer on and then fill the paper tray with paper.

If this is an HP printer, press the "Setup" key until "Tools" is shown on the control panel display screen. Follow equivalent steps for other printers by reading the user manual.

Press "OK." If your printouts continue to be faint, show white line streaks or smudges, go to the next step to clean the contacts on the print cartridge.

Open the print cartridge access door. Wait until the print cartridge moves all the way to the right side and completely stops.

Remove the power cord from the electrical outlet.

Press down on the top of the cartridge and lift it up toward you holding it by its sides. Avoid touching the copper area when you lift it out of its slot. Sit it down on a flat surface, such as a table.

Wet a lint-free cloth with water and squeeze out any excess.

Pick up the cartridge by its sides and avoid touching the copper area.

Gently wipe the copper contacts of the print cartridge with the dampened, lint-free cloth. Be careful not to wipe the copper nozzle part on the bottom of the copper cartridge.

Let the print cartridge dry for 10 minutes and then plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

Reinstall the print cartridge. If your printouts continue to be faint, show white line streaks or smudges, go to the next step to clean the nozzle area (copper bottom part of the print cartridge.).

Repeat steps 4 through 7 and then gently wipe the nozzle area with a clean, dampened lint-free cloth.

Let the print cartridge dry for 10 minutes and then plug in the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

Reinstall the print cartridge. If the ink is faint, or streaks or lines show on your printed pages, the old print cartridge may be defective and cannot be cleaned. Replace the old print cartridge with a new one.

My HP Laserjet 2840 is showing "replace supplies" in the display. There are 5 box/cylendar's that appear in the display and the last one has a solid black box box in it. I was able to go thru...

Thank you for contacting FixYa with your printer inquiry.
The low ink could definitely be the problem thats prompting the error. To begin troubleshooting print the supply status page and confirm the state of the various supplies. Follow the steps below:
Supplies Status page The Supplies Status page lists the remaining life of the HP print cartridges and the HP imaging drums. It also lists the estimated pages remaining, number of pages printed, and other supplies information. You can print a Supplies Status page from the device or the HP Toolbox. To print from the device, complete the following steps. 1. On the control panel menu, press MENU. 2. Use the button to select Reports, and then press ENTER 3. Use the button to select Supplies Status, and then press ENTER. Note Supplies information is also available through the HP Toolbox.
This page illustrates conditions of consumables for Toner Cartridges, Image Drums, Image Transfer Kits, and Fuser Kits. It also provides ordering information and methods for disposing of or recycling used supplies.
Supplies information is also available through the HP Toolbox.
Areas of Supply Status Page: 1. Print-cartridge area. This area contains a section for each of the print cartridges and provides information about HP print cartridges. This information includes the part number for each print cartridge, whether each print cartridge is low, and the life remaining for each print cartridge expressed as a percentage, as a graphic, and as the estimated number of pages remaining. This information might not be provided for non- HP supplies. In some cases, if a non-HP supply is installed, an alert message appears instead. 2. Imaging-drum area. This area contains the same information for the imaging drum that the print-cartridge area provides for the print cartridges. 3. Warranty Note. This section contains information about how the device warranty is affected when you use non-HP supplies. It also requests that you call the HP fraud hotline if a supply that is being detected as a non-HP supply was sold to you as a genuine HP supply. (See HP fraud hotline.) 4. Ordering Information. This section contains basic information about how to order new HP supplies. See Checking status and ordering supplies. 5. Recycling Information. This section contains a link to the website that you can visit for information about recycling. See Replacing and recycling supplies.

Kyocera Mita FS-1000+ paper slip single page? 5 pages print ok

This is a known problem.
Kyocera pretends to produce very silent printers. Therefore certain sheet metal parts inside the printer have a small piece of sponge rubber at their endings.
Unfortunately over the years this sponge rubber gets sticky. The corresponding lever, that is covered at its end with sponge rubber, sticks too long to its initial position. This is the reason why a certain lever is moved too late by the electromagnet into the position where a certain pulley is released.

As a result printing and paper movement are no longer coordinated and the printout is too low on the sheet.

Solution: Get rid of the sponge rubber, clean the lever very well in order to avoid it from sticking in its initial position. As a result you will here a much harder metallic noise when the lever moves, but the printout should be o.k.

Unable to configure the HP C6380 for double-sided printing


Here is the step by step right from the user manual. also here is a direct link to the manual.

Let me know how it works out for you.

Print on both sides of the page
You can print two-sided pages with the HP All-in-One manually. When printing two-sided
pages, make sure to use paper that is thick enough so that images do not show through
to the other side.
To print on both sides of the page
Load paper into the input tray.
2. On the File menu in your software application, click Print.
3. Make sure the product is the selected printer.
4. Click the button that opens the Properties dialog box.
Depending on your software application, this button might be called Properties,
Options, Printer Setup, Printer, or Preferences.
5. Click the Features tab.
6. In the Paper saving options area, select Manual from the Two-sided printing dropdown
Perform special print jobs 83
For binding, do one of the following:
• For binding on the top like a notebook or calendar, select the Flip Pages Up check
This causes the odd and even pages of your document to print opposite of each
other top-to-bottom. This ensures that the top of the page is always at the top of
the sheet when you flip the pages up in your bound document.
• For binding on the side like a book or magazine, click to clear the Flip Pages
check box.
This causes the odd and even pages of your document to print opposite of each
other left-to-right. This ensures that the top of the page is always at the top of the
sheet when you turn the pages in your bound document.
3 5 1
8. Click OK, and then click Print or OK in the Print dialog box.
The product begins printing. Wait until all the odd-numbered pages are printed before
removing any of the printed pages from the output tray.
A dialog box displays instructions on the screen when it is time to process the second
side of your job.
9. Click Continue when done.

How to print envelopes on my printer

Use The Recommended Print Area For the best printing results, adjust the top and bottom margins of your document to within the recommended printing area shown below. Click on the paper size listed for the recommended print area settings: A4 / B5 / A5 / 4 x 6 / 4 x 8 / 5 x 7 / Credit Card, Letter and Legal, Envelopes (DL / COM#10)
Caution: When printing is performed outside the recommended printing area, the top and bottom edges of the paper may curl, the print quality may deteriorate, or the printed side may be smudged.
The printer has both the recommended print area and the printable area, according to the paper size.
05sj00144_01.jpg Recommended print area: This indicates the recommended print area.
05sj00144_02.jpg Printable area: Although this indicates the printable area, degradation of print quality may occur.
  • Set Borderless Printing to print without margins.
  • In Duplex Printing, the printable area of the paper's header is approximately 2 mm narrower than usual.
