Re: 1520 printer

I just spent a couple of hours and finding a parts schematic to determine how to get the cover off. There are two screws visible inside the printer once the top cover is removed. These need to be removed. Also (and most important, there are two square openings immediately above the control panel in the lip where the top cover rests. Carefully using a screw driver you insert it into the opening to press a tab which will release the top of the control panel, this then tips out and you can remove the ribbon cable attachment. In the area where the control panel sits there is one screw you need to remove. On the bottom of the printer there are two rectangular openings near the front edge of the printer. These contain tabs that you need to release with a screw driver, when the tabs are released the front edge of top cover should come off and the whole cover tips to the back and unhooks from the back of the printer. Of course, remove all paper trays and the rear tractor feed (if you have it). I really hope this helps!

Please call service h4-00

H4-00 indicates that the fuser unit (right hand side where the hot rollers are) is not heating up. It could be a blown heater lamp or a blown thermal limiter. You can try resetting the code by pressing: #,*,C,*, 1,4, then choose yes or 1. this will reboot the machine. The h4-00 code may return but this is worth a try. Good luck.

HP 500ps showing error is System error 86:01

System Error: 86:01
Problem Description: Carriage-Axis shutdown.
If this error code appeared but was NOT caused by a paper jam, then try the following:
* Too much friction in the Slider Rod. lubricate the Slider Rod.
* The Carriage is bumping into the Service Station. If the carriage
is stuck at the right hand side of the Printer and cannot be moved
out to the center of the Print Platen it is because the Service
Station cannot uncap the Printheads. In this case replace the
Service Station/Aerosol Fan Assembly

Fault/error 6A00 for my canon MP830 flash light and no paper (fault) roller defect can I fix this ? John

6A00 is AP position error.Possible problems in:
- Sheet feed unit (QM2-1220)
- Logic board assembly (QM2-1520)
First, make sure there is no paper jam anywhere in the machine.. look inside, rear, where the paper tray (output) is, etc to see if you find any shreds or torn paper that may have gotten stuck and you didn't see.Look carefully in the zone of Purge unit, using flashlight in the right side on printer.If this not help your printer need service.
