This may not be the best way to fix this but in the past I've forcefully moved the carriage to a position where I can insert the cartridge.

SOURCE: Error 0F0100030C099F on hp5000

found this maybe can help i dont know
I tried the fix of :
This may be an error finding the mark encoder. The mark encoder is the
white plastic piece on the left end of the roller. Replace the lense cover
first. If the error remains, turn the printer off, and place a piece if black
tape over the hole at the left end of the drive roller, this will block the
mark encoder from the line sensor and should trigger a 010092 error during
power on. When the 010092 error comes up,
press enter to continue past the error. After the printer comes ready, remove
the tape, and run a scan axis calibration.
To run the Scan Axis Calibration:
1. Enter "Device Setup".
2. Enter "Utilities".
3. Press the UP arrow and ENTER keys simultaniously,
4. Select "Yes".
5. Enter "Service Calibrations".
6. Run the "Scan Axis Calibration".

Here's the solution for fixing a carriage jam on your PSC 2315xi printer. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00042632&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=90812 But, you said the encoder strip came off. I always understood that if the encoder strip came off, the printer was dead. I've never tried to take the encoder strip off and put it back on again to see what happens. The encoder strip is what tells the carriage where it is. Without the encoder strip, the carriage doesn't know where to go.

Kodak esp 7250 printhead carriage jam


This problem has plagued me for a very long time. The issue is that the printer head is "glued" in the resting position under the guard of the printer, so you can't remove the ink cartridges to clean it. Solution is to (I know this sounds stupid, but it works) turn the printer on the side where the printer cartridges are (if they are stuck on the left side, turn the printer on its side so the cartridges are on the bottom). Turn the printer on, and the cartridges magically start moving! I guess there are some sensors that get tricked out when you tip the printer on its side. If the cartridges are still stuck, click the "ok" button, and before it gets a chance to see if you actually fixed the problem, turn the printer off using the power button. It takes a long time, but you should see the ink trap lower (release the ink cartridges) and the ink cartridges start moving to prepare for shutdown! Grab the cartridges when they move out of their hiding place and don't let them go back until you clean the print head so it doesn't get stuck again. Remove the ink cartridges, then push the grey tab to release the print head. Wipe the bottom of the print head clean with rubbing alcohol (it will have a lot of gooey - sticky ink stuck on the bottom). I used nail polish remover since I didn't have rubbing alcohol available. You can also wipe down the ink pad which is where the ink cartridges were previously jammed to clean up more of the mess and prevent this sort of thing happening again too soon. Good luck!

Unplug the printer from computer, then Unplug the printer from wall when the carriage is all the way to the left, then manually slide it to the area where you can open the ink cartridges, pull all ink cartridges out, close cover and turn printer on. Printer should now be acting as it should.

How do i fix a cartridge jam?


Hi andmary,
While using the HP Photosmart C4180, the printer may display error messages. These messages alert you, as the printer's user, to any problems affecting the printer's performance. The printer can display the message "Carriage Blocked" on the printer's display screen, stopping any current print jobs and preventing you from printing anything until you resolve the problem. The error message can be caused by an actual obstruction, such as a stuck piece of paper, keeping the cartridge carriage from moving freely inside the printer. Sometimes the error is a result of a software error.

Instructions:
1. Turn off the printer, wait 15 seconds, then turn it back on. Press the "Setup" button on the control panel, then use the arrows to highlight "Print Report" and press the "Ok" button to print a self-test page.
2. Remove all the loose paper from the printer's input tray. Turn off the printer and open the back door by depressing the tab on the left side.
3. Pull out any stuck paper, being sure to turn the rollers to check for small pieces of paper. Close the back door and open the printer's front door.
4. Remove any stuck paper from the printer. Move the cartridge carriage from the left to the right side of the machine, removing anything that stops the carriage's movement.
5. Push down on each cartridge, then pull each one out of its slot. Replace the cartridges in their slots, then push forward on them until they each click into place.
6. Plug the printer back in and turn it on, then unplug the printer's power cord from the back of the machine and the electrical outlet. After at least 15 seconds, plug the power cord back in and turn the printer back on. If the problem persists, take the printer to a repair shop.

Hope this helps.
Thank you for using Fixya!

We keep getting left cartridge incorrect message?


Are you using Dell Series 5 ink cartridges?

If you unplug the printer from the wall and remove the power brick for 60 seconds, this will reset any error messages the printer has. I would then plug everything back in.

Power on the printer.

Open the printer(with the power on) and take out the Dell Series 5 black cartridge and then reseat it. I would then take out the color Dell Series 5 ink cartridge and reseat it. Now close the printer and it will print an alignment page.

Any error messages?

black cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)

photo cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges .

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

It's possible to get a Dell Series 5 ink cartridge with a bad sensor. I would that these back to the place of purchase for a replacement or a refund.

I am refilling the black ink of my canon printer using continuous ink container but the black color doesn't flow into the end of the hose and it didn't print at all, please help


  • Check the printer's power/alarm light. If it is flashing orange, count the number of flashes. Look up the flash code in your printer's user manual to diagnose the problem.
  • 2 Remove and reinstall the ink cartridges if the power/alarm light flashes 5, 7 or 15 times consecutively. This indicates that the issue is a cartridge error, an incorrectly installed cartridge, or an unrecognized cartridge. These errors can be fixed by reinstalling the ink cartridges. Make sure that you are using the correct ink cartridges for your Canon printer.

  • Turn on the printer and open the front cover. The ink cartridge holder should move to the replacement position.
  • 4 Verify that the colored ink cartridge is inserted in the slot on the right and the black ink cartridge is inserted in the slot on the left. Swap the cartridges and reinstall them in the correct slots if necessary.
  • 5 Check to see that both ink cartridges are level with one other and parallel to the top of the ink cartridge holder. If either cartridge is wedged at an angle, gently apply pressure to the cartridge until it clicks into the correct position.
  • 6 Close the front cover of your Canon printer and wait while the printer initializes the newly installed cartridges. This can take a minute or two.

    When i opened my lexmark 1200 printer to replace the ink cartridges, i noticed a long thin strip of plastic was loose. and now the cartridges dont move back and forth smoothly but clunk to either side and...


    If the encoder strip has become unseated: 1 Turn off the printer and disconnect the power cable from the back of the unit. 2 Open the printer's front cover. 3 Pinch the top of the carrier belt and gently move the cartridge carrier to the center of the printer. 4 On the back of the cartridge carrier, there is a small slot that the encoder strip fits into. Gently push the encoder strip down and back up to get it into the slot. NOTE: If the strip is completely out of the slot, it may be necessary to move it first forward and then back. 5 Move the cartridge carrier back to the left-hand side of the printer with the carrier belt. 6 Reconnect the power supply and turn the printer back on
    If you need some graphical reference, please refer to this article: Printer Cartridge Stalls or Is Blocked .

    I am getting a 50c error on my dell 960 all in one printer how can i fix this problem


    only Dell ink carts will fit or work in you printer. If the ink cartridge you got is a refilled used Dell ink cart. It should print ok but will never indicate true ink levels. If the ink cartridge carrier goes to the left when the clear plastic indexing strip which is attached to both sides of the printer, has slipped out of the slot on the back of the ink cart carrier or the strip has come off of one side. If it is off put it back on. In future use only new dell cartridges.
    If this helps please give me a good rating.
    Thank you and good luck

    I had the same problem. E J kept flashing. My black cartidge on the left side wasn't set correctly. It was a refill from a store an was smaller and looked different than the color . It was blocking the ink carraige from moving. I took out the black and pushed it back as far as possible. Now it works fine. Hope it works
