Question about HP Printers & Copiers

I have a HP photosmart C3150 all-in-one copier/scanner/printer. I changed both ink cartridges on Sunday and when I closed the door the cartridges moved to the left and are stuck there. How can I fix the problem? Barbara Johnson/ jeanbabs57@cox.net

    I am unable to get to the cartridges because they are STUCK way to the left side of the printer. I tried to reach back there but am unable to budge them. and they are way back. Any more suggestions?

    I cannot accept your solution because I am unable to get to the cartridges to remove them because they are STUCK to the left of the printer. When printer is turned on tere is a clicking noise which sounds like the cartridges are trying to move dbut are STUCK. This is my second response to your first solution. Please e-mail me: jeanbabs57@cox.net

You had probably checked inside the printer for any obstructions. A hardware reset won't help because of the mechanical failure.

Manually moving the print head will further damage the unit. It needs service from a QUALIFIED technician.

But you can try it if you want to and take the risk of rendering your printer completely useless.

    One more thing, having your printer repaired costs more than buying a new one. Ask for quotation and compare the price.

To avoid further damages - the printer now suffering a mechanical problem & its better to bring the printer on service instead of getting the luck for you to fix it, if you have no idea how to repair such one.

    when you open the door of the printer you will see a steel colour  rod in the printer on which the cartridge carriage holder moves.if that steel colour rod becomes rusty at the ends the carriage is unable to move properly and it gets stuck in the corner.so OFF the printer.pull the cartridge holder with your hans it will easily get moved.apply any soft greese material on that steel rod and with your hand move the carrisge holder on that rod.if will become fluent and then never give u such types of problem again.for a longer period of time.


    feel free for further assistance.

    If the cartridge is stuck the next thing you need to do here is to take the printer apart so you can remove the stuck cartridge and also check for any mechanical failure of the printer...

    turn off the printer by unpluging the printer and plug back and check if the cartridge comes back to the center.
    if not manually pull the cartridge to the center and power cycle. then reinstall the cartridge.

    If that does not work try pressing the on button for ten seconds.

    Try also removing the cartridge.
    Then unplug power.
    Put back cartridges in place.

    If it stays stuck try gently playing with the ink carriage, if it does not unlock, then there is a fault in the mechanic, the motor or the traction belt are broken.

Hp photosmart c3150 keeps color light and check cartridge light keeps bliking after replacing with a new one.


It sounds like you ink cartridge is electrically bad; you can run the diagnostic 'tap 41' test to confirm. The HP 31xx printer 'access procedure' will be very similar to this HP Fxxx series access procedure:

My hp photosmart c3150 just prints blank pages what do i do


Hi,
Turn the printer on and off. Disconnect the usb connections and restart your PC.
Turn the printer on and try printing.
Check the cartridges.They maybe low on ink or even dry.
If the cartridges are fine,remove the black cartridge from its slot on the right and check its nozzles for damages.Make sure the plastic tape usually on it when new has been fully removed.Slide the cartridge back into the slot and push it forward till it clicks.Please do the same with the other cartridge.
Remember to replace any used cartridges.


Hope this helps.Thanks!
