Sounds like the printer still has some ink in it, it'll stop printing when the ink is empty. If it's still printing but in poor wuality, give it a head clean

    If the printer has stopped altogether, try the head clean, when the print head has moved from home, remove the mains plug at the wall. you should be able to manually move the head to replace the cartridge.

How to change ink cartiridges


  • 1

    Turn on the Canon iP2000 if the device is not on. Allow it to power up for about 30 seconds.

  • 2

    Gently lift the cover of the unit with your hands. Lift only the top cover of the printer.

  • 3

    Wait until the print head moves to the center of the unit. It automatically moves to this position, allowing you access to all the cartridges. Do not try to move the print head manually, or remove a cartridge before this part stops and the light turns green.

  • 4

    Remove the section of orange film on the side of the new ink cartridge. Twist off the small plastic guard on the bottom of the ink cartridge.

  • 5

    Remove the old ink cartridge from the ink cartridge holder with your fingers. Press the tab on the cartridge forward and then pull it up and out of the holder. Slide the new cartridge into its place. Push down on the top of the cartridge to snap it into the unit. Close the cover when finished.

Hi, I have a Lexmark X7170 Multi-function printer/copier/scanner and it is showing an error message "left cartridge incorrect". I have not charged the cartridges and I have tried to re-align it. Any ideas?


it means your left cartiridge got some problem, might be it got short and you have to replace that.

try this remove your left cartiridge and then try to print if it work then its clear that your aother cartiridge is gone and you need to change it.

Photo 926 cartridges got stuck and now won't move


Power down printer. Lift cover and manually slide cartiridges left to right a few times. close cover, power on and see if when you open the cover again the cartiridges align. To double check your system is working, try to make a copy of a document.

Carriage Jam HP Officejet 7410 All-in-One


Don't know if this will help everyone...but worked for me after trying everything I could think of (including calling a repair service who had no solution). Open the carriage door. Turn printer on and off a couple of times. The carriage on mine would still go back and forth during this process. Noticed a cover moving from front to back behind and then underneath where the cartiridges sit when idle on far right side. When it stopped before the cover moved forward I moved the cartridge holder to the left and could see a "clump" of partially dried ink about the size of a lima bean back there. I carefully removed it with a pair of tweezers. Now it's working again!

Error 6A00 on MP500


I think the 6A00 is a mechanism jam code.

Regarding Error code 6A00. I have a Canon Pixma iP5000. I got that code. No easy answers on the net so I took it apart myself. The covers are all snap locked on. It was a bit painful but I got the side and top covers off to reveal the print head. There is a device that slides back n forth and acts like a window cleaners squeegie on the printhead. This mechanism seemed to be stuck at its full extention rather than being back at home base. Every time I turned it on and off I could see it tried to move but seemed to be stuck. I gave it a little assistance and that released it. I think it had become blocked up with drying ink and that had acted like a glue holding it out at full extension. The mechanism that drives the sliding squeegie relies on a spring
for it to return. The spring wasn't strong enough to over come the gluey ink and so the whole thing jammed up which is probably what the code means - jammed mechanism. If you are going to try it. Do not force any part of the covers. There are little arrows in the plastic indicating where the snap locks are, stick a flat head screw driver in to release. Trial and error will release the right ones first. You'll release one part only to find it hooked up at the next snap lock. Some are hidden under or on opening covers so keep looking. The base seems to be securly attached to the workings so don't try and get it off. Just top and sides. Ink is water based so a damp rag is all you need to clean.

Printer cartridge cradle is stuck-hp photosmart 7350


I just had the same problem...and this is what I did to get it working...

Turn off your printer. Open the top. Push the cartridge thingie off to the side (if possible) and then take QTips and cleaned the silver bar the cartridge moves on. Got a lot of ink off of it.
Should run after that.
