Canon i960 carraige stuck all the way to the right

Opening/closing the cover normally makes the carraige position change. now opening or closing the cover does nothing. unplugged USB and power, no change.

    reset codes not working for canon i960 or canon s900

    i960: as soon as printer is plugged in power light comes on. reset codes requires you to press resume before pressing power button, but power comes on immediately so this doesnt work. print head is stuck to the right (over waste pad?) and never moves. green light stays on for 4 seconds, blinks, then repeats. pressing and holding power button = blinking green light. playing with resume button while holding power button doesnt seem to do anything

    s900: following reset directions gets me to serivce mode where you get 7 orange flashes follwed by a steady green light in a repeating pattern. following the reset code for the waste tank (pressing resume 4 times after entering service mode)

    the tip on making the print head move doesnt help.

    there are no paper jams or obstructions.

Hello mkingrei,

It seem the cartidges are stuck.

Try to open the printer and look for something blocking them, also try to gently manually push the cartidges from the side where they are to the middle of the printer.

Good luck,
Dahaka

This is a mechanical problem already with your printer and may require some part replacement, so it will be better if you can take it to a service center.........

Hi,

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. (http://canonresetter.fortunebisnis.com/))
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
6) Press power to set data.
7) Print away!
For other codes for other printers and more info go here to this big forum (but try the above first) Fix Your Own Printer Generally many of Canon's models use exactly this same code, the i models use the same code, all the s models use the same code.

First disconnect the printer from the computer to isolate it.
Turn off printer and leave it for at least 5 minutes.
Check for any obstructions inside then power on the printer still disconnected from computer.
Reseat the ink cratridges.

I just replaced the black and cyan ink in my i960 printer -- now nothing prints at all -- blank pages. I checked to make sure all of the packaging was off the cartridges


Run the Canon printer-software to launch a "print-head-cleaning" task,
because you may have "clogged" ink-jets, so that no ink can be sprayed onto the paper.



















Test to see if FIXYA "censors" some words:

Start with the word CALM ( calm ) and swap the middle letters: **** ( **** ),
as in the ****-shell model of Apple portable computer,
or a cell-phone that opens like a ****-shell.

Do you see <star><star><star><star> instead of the word?
How about STUCK ( stuck ) and omit the 'T' to become: **** ( **** ),
as in "the printer sucks ink from the ink-tanks and jets the ink onto the paper".

Every time I send a document to print, I get the message, "Paper Mismatch. Paper detected does not match paper size of type selected. Change paper and press OK on the hp officejet to continue...


When you print the document then select the size of the paper you want that to be print in. It will ask you when you print the document. It might be the case the default A4 size is set to other.
Try it might it can help you out.If not leave a comment will provide another solution.

How do I open my canon printer to change the ink cartige?


Step 1
  1. Select the ink cartridge specific to your printer. Canon inks are versatile, so your selection may be as simple as choosing between black, color or a multi-pack with black and color cartridges.
  2. Step 2 Turn on your Canon printer. The switch is generally located on the top right hand side of the printer. Open the printer's lid.
  3. Step 3 Wait a moment. The cartridge carrier will automatically disengage.
  4. Step 4 Put your hand behind the existing ink cartridge and pull the cartridge towards you until it pops out. Dispose of or recycle the used cartridge.
  5. Step 5 Carefully pull the tape off the new cartridge.
  6. Step 6 Position the new cartridge into the cartridge carrier. Make sure it is facing the correct position.
  7. Step 7 Press the cartridge carrier gently until it clicks into place. Some cartridges have indicators to demonstrate that they are properly positioned.
  8. Step 8 Close the printer's lid. Print a test page to ensure everything is working properly. ....plz give feedback..

Canon i960 qill not put ink on paper


I called Canon. I also had green 1 flash and amber 1flash everytime I turned on the printer. That right there indicates an elecrical problem. The flashes mean it needs serviced and with it not printing now means it's not wirth fixing, out of warranty. Canon did offer a code for reduced price new or referbished print from them.

Printer top stuck in open position


Don't know if I can, BUT here's try ... jiggle the cover and see if you can slip things back. It's possible you got it too far out of alignment and it won't go back. Try something of that nature. Maybe you were too enthusiastic when you opened it. Also check to make sure there's nothing in the way, or something wrong someplace else. What does your computer say? Any message.

I have a Canon, but it's fairly new and if yours has a hinge on it that slips back, make sure your cover is high enough with your left hand so that the hinge inside the printer swings freely and slip your right hand back against the hinge and gently push. Try that. I have a PixmaM320 or something similar to that number.

I'm trying to get an old HPDeskjet1120c to print. So far, no suggestions on line or manufacturer's suggestions have worked. Steady print light, reset light off, and cartridge (bottom light) light blinks. Oh well Hope the above suggestions work for you.

Will not find home position after switching on makes clicking noise screen 's got egg timmer showing after afew minutes it stops clicking but remains with egg timmer showing help?


The carraige is moved by a toothed rubber belt and plastic gears. Unplug the machine, open the front cover, and manually relocate the print carraige to the far right. Close the cover and plug machine back in. Hope this helps.

WRONG CARTRIDGE and Printhead does not move MP780


your printer ink cartridge can not access (move to middle) when you open up the cover, you may try
1) try to open right side cover you move the cartridge by hand (power off) to middle position, then take out the cartridge and reinstall it then power on, the cartridge moving right, you may open up the cover again if the cartridge go back the middle position which means your printer works normal. still stop moving go next
2) check the cartridge initcial sensor at righe side, the cartridge moving to the end of right should be touch this sensor, find out it and check there is good touch (click) by the cartridge body. adjust the sensor position maybe needed.
3) cartridge is stucked sometime also check the cartridge moving rail hard moving, need to drop oil to lubricate.
