Hi there

Thank you for your reply.

I have solved the problem with lots of patience, perseverance and prayer. Unfortunately, the method I used is quite unorthodox and I would not recommend anybody to try this at home. Rather take your printer to a reputable technician.

But, the "docking station" is back in its place and my printer is working like a dream again.

Kind regards
A

    Blank ink not printing


    Please remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a dry lint free paper towel and gently wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge (not the bottom from where ink is present). Wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier). Please try to print the self test page.

    A technique to improve print quality is to try and clean the cartridge nozzles. You can clean the cartridge using the following steps given below:
    Click on "Start," go to "All Programs," and down to the Lexmark. Click on the "Solution Center." Next, click on the "Maintenance" tab. Select "Clean to fix horizontal strips." This will produce a printed page.
    The colors that you should see here are black, yellow, magenta (a reddish purple) and cyan (a dark sky blue). You should notice the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. These diagonal lines should be solid from left to right with no gaps.
    If there are gaps in the lines or the print diminishes across the page, you should run the "Clean to fix horizontal strips" page a couple more times to try and clear it up. If you still have gaps at the top and bottom, you should "wick" the cartridges by following the steps given below:
    1. Please open the "Solution Center" again and go to the "Maintenance" Tab.
    2. Select "Install color/black cartridge" and remove the cartridge (or cartridges) from the printer.
    3. Get a damp paper towel.
    4. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.
    5. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean.
    6. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
    7. Snap the cartridges back into the printer.
    8. On your computer, select "Old Cartridge install."
    9. Repeat the "Clean to fix horizontal strips" one more time. If this fails to address the problem, the entire procedure may need repeating.
    If you have replaced your ink cartridge with a new one and are continuing to experience difficulties with print quality, please try cleaning and wicking the ink cartridge. If this fails to resolve the issue, the maintenance station may have an excess build-up of ink.
    The maintenance station is located inside the printer on the right hand side. This is the same area where the cartridges sit when in the "idle" position. To access the maintenance station: Unplug everything from the back of your printer, open the front cover and look above the steel rod. You should see a conveyor belt with rubber teeth on it, like a fanbelt. On some models, the cartridge access will be very small, but the belt should still be visible. Take the top part of the belt and move it gently to the right.
    ***Note*** please do not pull outwards on the belt. The cartridges should come over towards the left side of the printer. The maintenance station will be on the right side on the bottom of the printer behind the fixed cover. Clean the area with several damp cotton swabs or damp papertowels until the build up of ink is removed.
    Once the maintenance station has been cleaned you should "wick" the cartridges. Remove the cartridge from the printer. Get a clean damp paper towel and lay it on a flat surface. Set the ink cartridge right side up, with the ink nozzles touching the towel and hold in this position for about 15 seconds. Then wipe the nozzles across in one direction only (left to right). Repeat this process, each time using a clean spot on the paper towel, until it looks clean. Dab the cartridge on a dry towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
    After you have wicked the cartridges place them back into the printer, securing them into place. Plug the power back into the printer. Close the cover and click on "Old Cartridge Installed" on the "Control Program" screen. Once the printer has reset, run the "Clean Print Nozzles" page twice. This should resolve the issue.

    PRINTER CARRIAGE


    Hi,
    I have just solved a loud juddering noise on a C44 printer whenever the cartridge carriage moved to the far right "rest" position.

    I removed the cover by pushing in the 3 spring clips at the back. Below the cartridge holder there is a unit for collecting ink when the unit self cleans- see diagram on http://www.compassmicro.com/files/S%20C43SX%20(LA)%20exploded%20diag.pdf
    page 4 and spare part drawing ref 512.
    The piece of plastic containing the hook seen on the right of the unit had become dislodge and the unit no longer sat square in the holder. I removed the unit, replaced the dislodged plastic piece and hey presto problem solved. Hope this helps anyone with the same problem.

    the code strip is the plastic strip that runs across the printer and through the head
    carriage, it is supported at each end (one end under spring tension).
    If it has become dislodged it will cause this problem. carefully try to place it back into place
