After typing first line, hit the return key. The carriage would not return to the far left margin...it only moved 12 or so spaces to the left.


The carrier slides on a silver shaft that is about 1/2" thick spray some WD40 on the shaft, if that doesn't do it you have to get some on the carrier motor bearings located under the case in the R. rear corner.

I get the 5100 error code. I have done the reset procedure to no avail. The cartridges seem to move normally and there is no obstruction apparent. Any suggestions on how to fix? Thanks, Terry


Hi
Error 5100 on canon is a Carriage Home Position Error. Try reseating the printer cartridges. If that doesn't help make sure there is no paper stopping the carriage from moving right to left. Try cleaning the plastic strip (encoder strip, behind the carriage) that runs the length of the carriage, it may be contaminated. Use alcohol and a swab (Q-tip) to clean. Before cleaning unplug it from the power supply. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

ERROR 86:01


General causes are media or other obstructions in the carriage path, the trailing cable, worn carriage bushings, lack of lubrication in the carriage path, a dirty encoder strip, the scan-axis motor, or the service station. Follow the steps listed below to accurately troubleshoot the issue, and replace the appropriate parts.
1. Visually check for jammed media or other obstructions in the carriage path and remove any obstructions found (remove any loaded media as well).
2. Determine if the noise is normal. Some noise is normal. Specifically, it is normal to hear a slight clicking noise when the carriage moves under the left or the right-hand covers.
3. If an 86:01 error occurs during initialization and the carriage does not move out of the Service Station continue Step 4, otherwise go to Step 5.
4. Remove the right cover and check the cable connection between the Interconnect PCA and the Service Station motor. If connections appear normal, replace the Service Station
5. Attempt to verify functionality, if problems persist, continue with the remaining steps.
6. Unlock the carriage as instructed below:
a. Highlight the Set-Up menu and press the Enter key.
b. Press the Up Arrow and Enter keys simultaneously and then press Enter.
c. Scroll to Service Utilities and then press Enter.
d. Scroll to Unlock Carriage and press Enter.
e. Unplug the printer from the power source.
7. Move the carriage manually through the entire movement path to see if it encounters any obstructions or has more resistance in any particular spot. Remove any such obstructions if possible.
8. Clean and lubricate the carriage rail.
9. Slide the carriage manually back and forth several times to evenly spread the lubrication across the entire carriage rail.
10. Turn the printer on and attempt to verify functionality.

This may be caused by:
  • Faulty carriage part so thatit cannot read film encoder properly. As a result, carriagepart move on uncontrolled.
  • Dirty film timing **** strip (Horizontal film encoder;available only ini series and above) so carriage part cannot read film encoder properly.
  • Another material (such as broken paper, etc) present in carriage path, blocking carriage part from moving.
To fix this problem you may try the following tips:
  • Check if any material present in carriage path; remove (clear) it
  • Check if film encoder is dirty; wipe slightly with moistened clothe.
  • At last, if carriage part is faulty you need to replace it.
Hope this will be helpful for you. Please don't forget to rate me.

Cartridge error


Step one:Clear any paper or carriage path obstructions
Right-click the link below to open a new browser window with specific instructions about how to clear paper jams. When you have completed the instructions for removing a paper jam, return to this point in these instructions to continue resolving a carriage stall. Click here for information on resolving paper jams.
Moving the carriage
With the all-in-one turned on, open the print cartridge access door. The print carriage might try to come to move into the access area. Allow it to move to that position if it does.
Without turning off the all-in-one, disconnect the power cord from the back of the all-in-one. The power cord must be disconnected to allow the parts to be moved by hand and to reset the paper feed mechanism.
Looking in through either the print cartridge access door or the output paper tray, verify that the print cartridges are locked into the carriage and have not come loose. Also verify that there are no obstructions under or around the carriage to block it from moving.
Verify that the print carriage can move freely across the width of the all-in-one by gently pushing the carriage to the left and then to the right. Clear any obstructions found.
You may have to reach through the output paper tray to access the print carriage.
Close the print cartridge access door and reconnect the power cord.
Press the On button to turn on the all-in-one.
Print the self test from the menu to check the functionality of the product by following these steps:
*Press Setup , press 2 , and then press 6 in sequence. (The printer should be in ready mode.)
If the self test printed in the step above, then try to print from the computer to see if the issue is resolved.
* If the issue is resolved , you do not need to continue with the rest of the instructions on this page.
* If the issue is not resolved , continue to the next step.
Step two: Plug the product directly into a wall outlet
Verify that the product is properly connected to a suitable power source by following the instructions below.
Verify that the computer and the all-in-one product have a three-prong power plug.
Remove the product cable from any power strips or surge suppressors, and plug it directly into a grounded (three-prong) wall outlet.
Try the print job again to see if this step resolved the issue.
If the issue is resolved , you do not need to continue with the rest of the instructions on this page.
NOTE:If the product prints when plugged directly into a wall outlet while disconnected from any power strips or surge suppressors, the power strip or surge suppressor may not be allowing sufficient voltage to reach the product.
If the issue is not resolved , continue to the next step.
Step three: Ensure that the control panel faceplate is installed correctly
If the control panel faceplate, or bezel, is incorrectly installed, the product may indicate a false carriage stall or carriage jam error condition. If the product has not been set up before, make sure the control panel faceplate is installed correctly by following the instructions below.
If the control panel faceplate is already installed, and your printer has been working for some time, do not attempt to re-install the faceplate. Press firmly on the faceplate to ensure proper installation of the faceplate adhesive or pins.
NOTE:If the control panel faceplate is already installed, proceed to the next step.
Attach the front panel covers.
Align the faceplate over the buttons on the top of the HP All-in-One.
Figure 1: Aligning the faceplate
Snap the faceplate firmly into place.

With the unit turned on, unplug the power cord from the unit.
NOTE:Do not do a partial reset when the printer is turned off.
Press and hold # and 3 while plugging in the power cord.
When Part.NVM Reset displays, release both buttons. The unit gets reset and comes online.

Just copy and paste the entire link into the Internet browser's address bar and press enter

If the issue persists, try resetting the All-in-one to factory defaults by following the below given instructions:

Note:
A semi-full reset will do the following:
