100.01 Services ITU Error, Lexmark C782

From the Lemark Service manual

A 100.01 ITU error indicates that the printer did not detect the ITU belt home sensor. Before proceeding with this

service check, make sure that the Second Transfer Roll is correctly installed. After you reinstall the Second

Transfer Roll, check to see if a 100.01 ITU error is still displayed. If a 100.01 ITU error is still being displayed,

continue with this check.

The ITU has an optical sensor that watches for a piece of reflective tape on the inside of the image belt. This

tape is read every revolution of the belt. If a signal is not received from the belt sensor within a certain time

period, the printer posts an error due to the loss of signal. There are several causes for the loss of signal. First,

the belt has tracked too far to the front or rear of the printer. In this case, the belt is still turning, but the reflective

tape is no longer passing within view of the belt sensor. This is considered a belt tracking error and is initially

posted as a 100.02 ITU Error. The other causes of a signal loss could be a belt stall, meaning the belt is not

turning, or a true signal loss, which would be due to a bad sensor, broken cable, loose connection, or bad

system board. These other causes post as a 100.01 ITU Error.

To assist the printer in determining the cause of a signal loss, there is a buffer that records the belt position for

the last 50 revolutions. If the printer loses the belt signal, it refers to the buffer. If the buffer shows significant

mistracking before signal loss, it will post a 100.02 ITU Error. If the buffer shows that the belt has been tracking

in the center before signal loss, it posts a 100.01 ITU Error. Due to memory restrictions, the buffer is not saved

during POR. This means if a printer posts a 100.02 ITU Error, so the belt is tracked off, and the customer or

servicer turns off the printer to clear the error, when the printer starts up, it will still not see the belt signal and will

now post a 100.01 ITU Error because the buffer is empty. When servicing a printer for a 100.01 ITU Error, it is

important to view the error log. See "Display Log" on page 3-29. The error log can only be displayed at this
point. Do not try to print the log. Look for past occurrences of 100.01 ITU Errors preceded by a 100.02 ITU Error.

I would like to manually clean the black print head of MRC-845CW but do not know how to get it out. I tried cleaning more than 10 times but did not help. I also put new black ink cartridge.

i assume that this one is multifunction brother mFc-845cw? if so, then please follow this procedure:

1. remove cartridge from craddle
2. check what is ink solvent, water, isopropyl alcohol or methylated spirit, solvent will be that which did not cause precipitation or curdling of the ink
3. touch bottom of the ink cartridge with lint free absorbent paper, if it leave print, this meant there is no problem with ink cartridge.
4. put one drop of solvent on gold button in the craddle adn allow to sink for about minute, touch with absorbent paper
5put a drop of solvent again on the nozzle in craddle, re-insert cartride and print test page. beginnig of the page will be rather faint but it should improve as page go to the bottom.

if this did not solved your problem, some office supply stores sell absorbent pads, weight is about 120 to 160, do not go for haevier than that as brother do not handle very well papers above 160 weight, try to print test page on that, whis will work as sort of cleaning tissue over the heads, do bear in mind that this cannot be run to often as it will wear heads very fast.

on all inkjet printers you need to print at least one page per week to prevent all nozzle from cogging and ink from drying.

hope this solve your problem, if not, please return but with more details on your printer.

I have a Epson Photo Stylus R1800 printer. All of a sudden the ink cartridges won't move over to print. I used the troubleshooting and epson said it was a repair issue. I no longer have warranty and it...

There is a "belt" that has a pulley at each end, and the belt is connected to the print-head.

If you open the lid, you should hear the motor spinning the pulleys, and pulling the belt.
If not, then the motor is not functioning.

Check that the belt is still connected to the print-head -- if it has broken-away, it's time to replace the printer, because it's impossible to purchase a replacement part to replace the broken part.

The print cartridge will not move

There is a "belt" (with pulleys at each end, and the carrridge in the middle) that pulls the carriage from edge-to-edge.

If that belt is broken, or the clamp that connects the belt to the carriage is broken, the carriage will not move.

It's cheaper to replace the printer, and responsibly recycle the old printer, than it would be to try to repair the printer.

First remove the flip up lid and the paper support tray then remove two small phillips screws one infront of the black ink cartridge the other on the far right. Then use two regular screwdrivers to pry off the cover start at the backside underneath you will see two tab slots walk the screwdrivers about 1" apart until the top is free (you will think that it is going to crack but the plastic is flexable and strong)
There are two metal tabs on both sides they are held in place by the tension from the plastic strip. Check strip ends make sure they are not broken and the strip is not frayed slide back in place adjust tension by bending tabs out slightly reassemble and print a test sheet. I had to run the test 2-3 times to reset the printer. If this does not work you need a new printer.

HP lasrjet 4240n it won't print

The printer is unable to read the electronic information (e-label) on the print cartridge so that the printer can keep track of the page count for the print cartridge.
Open the top cover, remove
the print cartridge, and
reinstall it.
2. Install a new HP print
3. Check the connection
between the
DC controller PCA
(location J97) and the
memory chip on the print
cartridge (location J600).
4. Replace the memory chip
cable and contact assembly.
5. Replace the
DC controller PCA.

HP PSC 2175 Cartridge Belt

Ok, I will try to explain how I fixed mine as best as I can. I took it all apart and realizing that the belt moved the cartridge carriage I thought 'hmmmm' and took the belt, cleaned it and the cartridge carriage and in the channel on the carriage where the belt sits (sort of W shaped) I put some 'Gorilla glue' and put the broken ends down into the glue. I let it set up for about 6 hours and my printer has been back up and running ever since. That fixed the broken cartridge carriage belt for me. Now if the other belt breaks then I guess I will have to break down and buy another printer but after 6 years of service I can't complain. And yes I have been refilling now for over 4 years. I hope this helps.

Cartridge slides too far left

Keep your printer on, lift the lid should be right in the center.
