Question about Canon BJC S800 InkJet Printer

Open Question

It is stuck!!

I was performing a routine cleaning when it suddenly stoped followed by a "grinding" noise, almost like a car's start engine. The indicator light is blinking 4 oranges between 2 long green ones (replace empty ink), but the cart doesn't move to the center, neither make a noise. Every time it is powered on it makes the noise. I try to reset: 1) Power off printer 2) Hold RESUME button then press and hold POWER. (The beeper MAY sound once, or may not depending on your model.) 3) Hold POWER and Release RESUME. 4) Press RESUME twice then release both POWER and RESUME buttons. 5) When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME 4 times (for the S900, 3 times for the 8200 apparently). 6) Press power to set data. It still refuse to move. Is there hope for it? It has been the best printer we ever owned.

The waste ink is in the inside of your printer you need to get at it to clean out,
It may be all screwed down so you need to open all up or get a shop to do it for you.
It not an easy job but maybe you are handy with a screwdriver, it can be messy job.
But after this, you will have to reset the waist ink counter or it will still not work,

My Dell 2135cn printer all the sudden started making crazy loud grinding noises. Then I got a paper jam. I fixed the paper jam and tried to print again, but got the loud grinding noises and paper jam...

Refer to the service manual in disassembling the device.. Clean it thoroughly then try it again.. If, you have no experience in doing so, hire a qualified tech to do so.

Canon MX7600 error 5100, 5C20

Yes, 5100 means the carriage is not moving back and forth properly or there is grease on the encoder strip behind the carriage assembly. Grease spots make it lose count and slam into the side and grind gears. You need to clean the strip with a Q-tip moist with alcohol, but very carefully, not too much pressure on the strip.

I have a color MFC 5 in 1 printer

If you did not get ALL the jammed sheet out, there is still a small piece of paper in there somewhere, probably covering a sensor or micro switch. Get a torch and look carefully. If youu don't find anything you may need to disassemble the printer to find it. Sounds like something is jamming.

HP 1720 I making a noise when printing.

    NOTE: Refer to the Testing section in this document for instructions on performing the tests.
  1. Turn the printer off, and then turn the printer on. The grinding or squeaking noise should not occur while the printer is initializing.
  2. Perform a paper path test. The grinding or squeaking noise should not occur because the carriage should not be moving.
  3. Perform a self-test to localize the noise.
  4. Check the printer for obstructions by lifting the top cover and making sure nothing is blocking the carriage movement.
  5. Check the paper path by following the instructions below:
    1. Remove all media from Trays 1, 2, and 3.
    2. Pull out any visible stuck paper.
    3. Lift the top cover, and pull out any jammed paper.
    4. If you are unable to free the jammed paper, pull out the handle of the paper knob, pull the knob away from the printer, and rotate it to remove the paper.
    5. Lower the rear access door by lifting up on the two rear door latches.
    6. Remove the back panel by pushing the two catches inward.
    7. Pull out any paper that may be stuck inside.
  6. Wipe down the milky white strip (see Figure 1) that the front of the carriage glides on with a clean, soft, dry, lint-free cloth.

bpp90119-1.gif Replace the whole unitgtabtop.gifIf the printer is still making a grinding or squeaking noise after following the steps above, replace the whole unit. See Whole Unit Replacement instructions, which are included with the whole unit replacement.

    Performing a paper path test

    2. Press ITEM until Perform Tray x Paper Path Test is selected.
    3. Press SELECT to perform the test.
    NOTE: The paper path test will terminate only when the paper in the tray being tested runs out or the printer is turned off.
    Performing the stand-alone self-test
    1. Press the MENU button on the printer control panel until Self Test Menu is selected.
    2. Press ITEM until Print Menu Map is selected.
    3. Press SELECT to perform the stand-alone self-test.

Printer makes noise while cleaning heads

Grinding noise is most likely caused by the carriage lock getting stuck and holding the print head at the home position. The noise is caused by the toothed belt that pulls the head back and forth, skipping over the splines on the motor drive wheel. If you have been able to print since the problem occurred, chances are that it has freed itself up and will be fine. Regarding the loss of cyan & magenta output, follow the solution given in my previous posts to complete a manual under-head cleaning cycle. This should get you going. Check this previous post for cleaning info:
