I have a replacemetn cartridge. I picked off the small peg on the side of the printer andproceeded to pull what appears to the "film" out teh cartridge... was this a mistake? Do I continue to pull the film completely out of the cartridge? Is the entire cartridge now ruined? If not, what do I do with the pulled out film? (HP LaserJet 92A)

All printers are different but there is either a button on the side or front or you just lift cover. The printer cartridges will appear. You may have a lid over the ink jet cartridges. Unlatch it and replace cartridge. Laser cartridges you usually just pull evenly and they will come out.
Try lifting the main cover as if to access the ink cartridges. Make sure that a) the printer is switched on, and b) the ink cartridge carrier is out of the way. Right in the middle of the bay looking down onto it, you'll see a small black plastic peg not much bigger than the end of a ballpoint pen situated over a silver coloured roller. Use a small implement to push the black peg downwards. No force is necessary to do this, so if it won't push easily don't force it. Once pressed down, the printer should operate normally. I believe the small peg is a mechanical device to inform the printer that there is paper in the tray, when of course there isn't. Try it out. Let me know if it works. As I spent ages trying to fix mine and it worked for me.
Check the two electrical contacts on the ink cartridge for small marks, which should appear if the ink cartridge was installed correctly.
If the electrical contacts do not have small marks:
1. Re-install the ink cartridge, making sure you press down on it until it clicks into position.
2. Remove the black ink cartridge, then check the two electrical contacts on the cartridge again for small marks. Repeat if necessary.
3. Re-install the ink cartridge.
Look at the Epson printer's LCD screen to see the ink levels for each cartridge. If your cartridge is completely empty, simply press the "Color" button. If your cartridge has a low ink level, press "Setup". Hold down the button on the upper left side of your LCD screen until the words "Replace Ink" appears, then press the "Color" button.
Wait until you see the words "Open the scanner" on the LCD screen. Then lift open the printer top by pulling up on the side grips next to the scanner unit. Make sure that the scanner lid remains closed. The ink cartridge holder should move to the far right of the printer.
After the cartridges have completely stopped moving, pull the cover of the ink cartridge holder up and toward you. Press in the tab of the cartridge you need to replace. Lift the cartridge straight up to pull it out of the holder.
Unwrap the replacement cartridge and insert it securely into the holder. Press straight down until the cartridge snaps into place.
Close the cartridge holder cover and make sure it clicks into place. Close the scanner unit and wait while the printer charges the new replacement cartridge. Wait until the word "Charging" disappears from the LCD screen before using your printer.
Do not turn off your Epson printer while the "Charging" message is
still on the LCD screen because this may cause your inks to not fully
charge. Turn off your printer only if there has been no response for
over five minutes.
Clean up any ink spills with soap and warm water.
Replacement ink cartridge: Black (T048120); Cyan (T048220); Magenta
(T048320); Yellow (T048420); Light Cyan (T048520); or Light Magenta
Removal and replacement is pretty straightforward but I know how some instructions and pictures are not clear. So this is what you need to do. Power off the printer and lift the lid up so that you can see the ink cartridges. You can put your fingers on them and move the ink cartridge carrier to the center so that you can reach them easily. If you will look at your new ink cartridge you can see how they have to set in the carriage. There is a small tab that you click up to release and bring the old ink cartridge up enough where you just pick up out of there. By looking at your old one you will see how the new one just falls into place and clicks in. Some printers do not have a small tab that you click up and for those you just grab the ink cartridge from both sides with your fingers and pull up. It will come right out and the new one will click into place as well. Be sure to take off any stickers that protect the ink cartridge before you place them in.
try this, its probably a small part of jammed paper or then theres a problem with the pickup, try cleaning it.
Turn off the printer.
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by
holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the
paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling
out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do
this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any
obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or
ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the
printer back on.
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
see alternative if the problem is still not solved.
a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume
button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the
printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.
The ultimate permanent fix for the x6170 printer would be to purchase
new cartridge snap-down levers (the levers that snap down inside the
dell printer to hold the cartridges, blue for color and black for
black). If you purchase snap down levers for a Lexmark printer series
X5100 or X6100 or Z55 or Z65, the little guide peg inside the snap
lever would work with an unmodified 83 and 82 Lexmark cartridge. All
Lexmark did for Dell to make the Dell unique, was to put special Dell
snap levers on the printer. I considered breaking off the little guide
peg on the snap lever, but decided against it as it appears to help
hold the cartridge in alignment
1) Pull out your old black ink cartridge, py pressing the button on top of the old cartridge and pulling it down.It will be released, then just get it out.
2) Look at the back of your new ink cartridge, there should be a small panel with some small squares and kinda orange panel, this is the side that should not face you, it should face the ink cartridge holder on the printer.
Just put it in like that. Tell me if you have any problems.
