Try placing a piece of Black Electricians tape over the stepped part of the cartridge make sure it covers the whole of the length this will fool the sensor into thinking that the ink is full. If you just cover a part of it on a near empty cartridge it will save not installed.

This check is done to make sure that the print head doesn't dry out but in my opinion these are set too high and you can waste about 8% of you total ink. If you do this before you install the cartridge you will be able to use all of the ink. Then just replace it with a new taped one...



unable to clean for dcp 340-cw brother - 6dbb0ac.gif

When you have purged , cleaned the print heads, your Brother Printer about 6,450 times it will be unable to print anymore. This is because they recommend that the printer is serviced this will cost you up to £120 (not bad for a printer that costs £60 NOT!!!)

The simple way is to spend £25 and buy your own replacement pads if you are up to taking the printer apart, see service manual this is hard to get hold of as are these instructions !!!!

In the mean time you can RESET this purge count back to zero using the MAINTENANCE 80 menu, to continue using the printer for a while until you get the new pads. But it on a tray as if they are full they may start to leak onto your desk....

1 . Press (MENU) (MONO START) then (^) OR <the up arrow> four times, the Photo Capture and Red Exclamation Lights will then flash.

2. Press (^) eight times until you see <8> then press (SET)
3. Press (^) twice until you see <0> then press (SET)

You will now be in MAINTENANCE 80.

4. Press the (MONO START) its a toggle until you see PURGE:6451 ( I guess this means you have cleaned the heads over 6,450 times their threshold level.) you will need to enter the code <2783> to RESET it.

5. Press (^) twice until you see < 2 > then press (SET)
5. Press (^) eight times until you see < 7 > then press (SET)
5. Press (^) nine times until you see < 8 > then press (SET)
5. Press (^) four times until you see < 3 > then press (SET)

The Printer will beep then reset counter will be at ZERO <0000000>

You can also RESET using the <2783> If you press the wrong key you will see MACHINE ERROR 46 on the LCD.


Almost forget to EXIT the Maintenance mode enter 9 twice by using the up arrow & set key's to exit from maintenance mode in the same way as entering the 2783 code, or power down the printer.

Brothers own solution is here

Canon Pixma MP160 stopped working, showing E 2 - paper is not jammed - Printer is NOT hooked up to a computer - only used for scan and print in farm shop (heated) - suggestions? It is an oldie but a...


First thing to try is pressing the "Stop/Reset" button. If that doesn't work, hold it down for more than 10 seconds and release. If that doesn't work try turning off the printer, unplug the power cord for more than 10 seconds then reconnect and turn the printer on again.
If the printer was connected to a computer, there might be more information provided about the source of the problem. Otherwise, a last resort would be to reset the printer. Follow this exactly:
  1. Turn off the printer (using "Power" button) but leave it plugged into the wall socket.
  2. Press and hold the "Stop/Reset" button (red circle in the triangle), and without releasing the "Stop/Reset" button, press and hold the "Power" button (indicator light shows green).
  3. While holding down the "Power" button, release the "Stop/Reset" button.
  4. Continue holding down the "Power" button, double click the "Reset" button and release the "Power" button.
  5. Click the "Stop/Reset" button four times
  6. Press the "Power" button to confirm and turn the printer off. Turn printer on again.

I am getting 'carriage Jam' message and being told to clear it. but i dont know how


Hi

1. Open the cartridge access door and try to move carriage manually back and forth.

If issue not resloved

2. Unplug the power cord from the back of the printer and while the printer is tuned On, Now press and hold OK and CANCEL, while holding them plug in the power cord once the printer is On release the buttons

This will RESET your printer to factory settings and it should fix your problem

Note : As I told you that it will Reset your printer to Factory Settings so if you have IP address saved in it then it will deleted.

"Improper Shutdown" - Printer keeps turning on and off.


Got the same problem following a message "Printer ink failure" code 0xc19a0035. Instructions say to shut down using button on/off. But printer refused to shutdown. After 30 minutes, I disconnected power cable. Removed cartridges. Reloaded cartridges. Reconnected power cable and got "Improper shutdown" message with continuous cycle. Solution: 1. While the printer is still turned on, unplug all cables and cords at the back of the printer.
2. Unplug the power cord also from the wall outlet...
3. Wait for two minutes.
4. Reconnect power cord to the wall outlet first.
5. Press and hold the pound (#) and six (6) buttons.
6. While holding down the two buttons, reconnect the power cord to the back of the printer and after two seconds, release pound and six buttons.
7. Turn on the printer if it turns off... and it's fixed.
8. Be patient to let printer run its tests.

Printer says it's jammed with each and every copy.


Hi,

It sounds like you printer does not know what size paper it has in the paper tray. Go into the menu and reset the paper size, If your printer is only 3 days old, Ihope the manuel is still around.

Good luck

I had a paper jam on my HPPhotosmart C4280. I cleared it but now I can't print at all. Paper either passes through without printing or jams again halfway through. I was just given a technical service...


If you are using that specific printer. After clearing the paper jam clean the rollers of the printer with a cotton ball that is moist with water or a lint free cloth that is moist with water.
Reset your printer by following this steps
1. Press and hold Cancel (X) then press the power button and release both simultaneously
2. “Enter Key Combo” will display on the LCD
3. Press and release in sequence BLUE, GREEN and GRAY
4. Press BLUE button twice “reset menu” displays on LCD
5. Press GREEN button
6. Press BLUE button once “PARTIAL RESET” displays on LCD
7. Press BLUE button twice “SEMI-FULL RESET” displays on LCD
8. Then press GREEN button
9. Then device turns OFF.
10. Turn ON device.
Try to print afterwards. If you will still have the same problem and if you think that you are still in warranty then call this number 1-800-474-6836 this is the number for hp technical support.
