    I have this problem with my ij1200 printer. The cartridges slam to left and stay there. Also green power light keeps flashing and i can not turn printer off by the power button! it won't go off

    Yes, I have the same problem on power up with the print cartridge slamming right and left, shaking the whole printer. I've taken it apart and don't see any problems with detached striped ribbon, don't know what the clear encoder strip is that's referred to -- that needs cleaning. I've looked at it close and there is no thin clear strip. Just the white ribbon with stripes under the print head, that is perfectly fine. I notice it seems to be trying to do something on the right side, where the cleaning area is, that's where it's confused. There was a big pile of gooey black ink in the docking bay? which I took out. There is a clip that fell out, stainless steel, flat, with two hooks on the top of it, very small piece. Can sort of see where it goes, but putting that in place made no difference. Also a stainless steel rod was loose, about 1/4" long, don't see where that goes. My intuition tells me it's part of a sensor as there is one like it on the left, where the print head rises up. Perhaps I just need more details on what is this encoder strip, what does it look like, any photos of this printer to show it? Thanks -- Beetsy

Using the same terminology would be helpful:
ribbon cable
encoder strip
locator strip
clear thin tape-like ribbon
timing belt - narrow strip
are these all the same thing?

Check the encoder strip if its on the right groove of the encoder strip sensor. and try also to replace the encoder strip sensor damaged sensor results with this kind of violent error.

This is caused by a dirty locator strip these are located as a clear ( nearly clear strip) passing thru the print head. wipe it off with 409 on a soft cloth. careful do not dislodge it it is delecate

Normally what I've found that happens is this: a clear thin tape like ribbon has detached from the printhead carriage. Check for that. If it has simply detached, all you have to do is re hook it to the side it detached from. If it is broken, it would be less hassle for you to just go buy new

The usual cause for a carrier slaming to one side is the timing belt is either out of place or is dirty. The timing belt is a narrow strip running from one side of the printer to the other side. This strip runs through a sensor on the carrier. open the lid to find the strip clean with isoproply alchohol check to make sure it is not twisted or out of place.

Sounds like you have a problem with the ribbon cable or the circuitry on the print head assmbly. The ribbon is usually a suspect if the cartridge lights are on. If that doesn't solve the problem check the circuitry.

SOURCE: troubleshooting on hp printer/scanner/copier

Hi,

This looks like either there is an paper jam or carriage jam on the unit,

Check the rare access door weather there is a paper jam.

Remove the cartridges and try moving the carriage( the cartridge hold) left to right and right to left and check if its moving freely.

After these try disconnecting the power cable without turning off the unit and hold the On button for 15 secs and then plug in the power cable while your hold the on button.

This should probably fix the issue.

Please do let me know if there is still an issue.

Print head slams side to side against little black movable posts.


Sounds like your printer needs to be serviced. Would seem to me like the rollers are dirty and needs cleaning. There's also a possibility of dust and paper bits being in other areas of the paper path blocking it.

Hp psc 1315 paper jam


Hi,



. Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge inside the all-in-one printer to dissipate before putting your hands or any metal tools inside the chassis.

2.
Pin down the exact location of the jam. The 3 hot spots for a jam are before a sheet completely leaves the paper tray, anywhere between the feed tray and print carriage or between the print carriage and output tray.

3.
Take off the front paper tray if the sheet jammed while still in the front area of the printer. If here, you should be able to see most of the paper.

4.
Pull the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper, leaving a piece deeper inside the machine.

5.
Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed-tray area and print carriage. Carefully remove the jammed paper.

6.
Use the carriage access door to get at a jam further inside the printer. You may need to remove the print carriage to get to the jam.

7.
Replace all parts and return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.

C4180 printer


Hi ,
This product clearly needs a servicing as far as my experience goes . Still we shall go ahead and try to reach the solution or else this definitely needs servicing. I shall explain why -
1. check cartridge on right : if you have replaced the black cartridge and have been using the original cartridges then its an issue with the print heads. The black print head needs to be replaced by the local service centre . There is a blockage in the nozzles of the print cartridge that passes out the ink.
2. slam to the right : if i am not wrong this is the carriage you are referring to. Do the following steps (though i presume you might have done it if you have reset the printer)-
a. pull out the power cable
b. open the cartridge door and hold the carriage with your hand and move it manually 4-5 times left to right with as much speed as possible....there should be no obstruction on the way it moves.....if there is a pin / peice of paper / any obstruction - remove it if you can. The carriage could also slam if the pin of its movement has gone loose and it keeps on slamming uncontrolably. This seriously needs a servicing from the local service centre.

One possibility is. look toward the back of the printer, there is a strip of clear plastic, about a quarter inch wide and clear. It runs the length of the print head area. That contains the stop strip. That strip or the sensor on the print head itself may be dirty and not sensing the strip, therefor not knowing when to stop.

MY test page always prints


Hi,

I belive that after replacing the INk cartridges, you are experiancing this problem. The Alignment test sheet always prints everytime you turn on the printer, if u haven't completed the Alignment process.

To complete the Alignment process,
>>Once the printer finished printing the Alignmnet test sheet.
>> Place the Test sheet staright on the scanner glass facing down towards right hand corner.
>>Press the scan button(color), the Power ON light will start flashing, wait until it stops flashing.
>>Alignmnet process completed.


Thank You
