I have seen this problem with this series of printer. (all the ones shaped like this ie. 5150) The lid will not close all the way on the right side (this is where the lid triggers the door open/close sensor flag). Somehow the sensor flag gets out of alignment over time where the top can't close properly to trigger it. The simplest solution is take something and wedge it where the tab from the lid would come down and make contact with this sensor flag. Print with the lid open or set the lid down on whatever you use to trigger the sensor flag. Hint: when testing and problem solving in house, I use a small piece of paper folded up several times to trigger door open/closed sensors that way I can watch the printing process and diagnose problems.

HELP PLEASE


Remove one cartridge and close the access door. If the cartridge light goes off, the bad cartridge has been removed. If the light continues to blink, remove the other cartridge and reinstall the first one. If the light goes off, the cartridge in the printer is the good one.

HP 5600 series Lid won't close properly so can't get anything to print. when I start to try to print the power button and the ink low button both flash but its not short of ink. If I press the resume...


On the HP5650 there is a switch on the right hand side at the top. The switch is flush with the inside surface under the cover. A tab on the right hand side of the cover is supposed to depress this switch telling the printer the cover is closed. If the cover is warped (mine was) or if the tab has broken off, you can manually depress the switch with a pen-point (or just hold the cover at that point) to get the printer to activate.

After installing re-filled ink cartridges, both color and back & white, the printer message that shows ink level still shows low level ink? How do we resolve?


Hello,

Try this procedure:
1. Open printer lid so cartridges move to center of carriage.
2. Lift clamp and remove black or color cartridge from the holder.
3. Place cartridge on table with copper contact strip facing you.
4. Carefully place a strip of clear plastic tape over the four contacts on the upper left corner of the cartridge.
5. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position.
6. Open lid and remove cartridge again. Remove tape from left side and place tape over four contacts at upper right corner of cartridge.
7. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position again.
8. Open lid again, remove cartridge, remove tape.
9. Reinstall cartridge and close lid.
Printer will now recalibrate. Once the process is complete the ink level meter should be reading full again.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

The cover will not close completely and I cannot print.


Lift the printer cover. There is a slot on the right side by the ink cartridges. push the end of your little finger into the slot. Close the lid. This has helped me many times. It seems the latch will stick and this usually unsticks it.

Ink cartridge replaced on laserjet 1018 and nothing will pring, worked prior to cartridge was replaced


THERE IS A PLASTIC PIN ON THE FRONT DOOR THAT PUSHES THE LOCK TO OPEN THE SCANNER LID WHEN YOU CLOSE THE DOOR (IS BROKEN) OPEN THE FRONT DOOR AND CHECK CAREFULLY.
TO FIX IT YOU MUST PUSH THAT WHITE LITTLE LATCH WITH A SCREWDRIVER UNTIL YOU BREAK IT OR DISAPPAR FROM YOUR SIGHT.

Hp inkjet 5650 cover will not close and I can't print anything.


I own several 5650's. There are two ways to solve it. Open then let the lid slam shut several times, and eventually it will close all the way. Second is to slap the right side of the printer and the vibration will let the lid close. Use gentle but firm force, I have done this alot and no damage.

When closing the cover very slowly do you feel at the very bottom before it "closes" a slight resistance?You should have to push it down to finish the movement. Simply let the lid rest on your fingers and lower it into place, if there's no resistance just at dead bottom then the physical tab attached to the pegs of the cover may have broken off. The swich to "close lid" is probably internal by the lid joint.


Check to make sure the print carriage isn't snagged either. any little piece of anything can cause problems.
Good luck.
