It sounds like the timing is out, or one component on your optical section has gone out of its timing sequence. However i have had some units on the main drive section that has given the same symptoms. Its best to inspect all drive gears at the same time

Make sure that there's nothing blocking the path of the printhead. Check inside the printer for any foreign objects.

If there's none, please contact our technical support team to have the printer replaced.

Also, try to unplug the power of the printer for about 30 seconds then plug it back in.

Hello, sounds like your drivers are messed up, reload them to the computer or the connection cable maybe bad. If neither of these fix then the printer is bad.

Installed new ink on ip4200. Black will not print on test page "horizontal box", other colors print. Any suggestion on why the black won't print? Thanks.

The ink tank requires air to flow through it so ink can move from the reservoir to the print heads.
  1. Confirm there is no orange tape across the top of the ink tank

  2. If the orange tape is as shown in Figure (A), it is properly removed.

  3. If the orange tape is as shown in Figure (B), remove the remaining tape to the level shown in Figure (A).

  4. Make sure each ink tank is snapped into the printer.

Cartridge banging on the right & left walls

There is a thin plastic strip that has small lines on it that stretches across the inside of the printer and fits trough the back of the print head. It is not in the slot of the print head or missing. I fixed my banging Dell 810 printer by putting it back in. I had no idea what it was at first. That's all I can tell ya.

A loud banging noise from inside - as it adjusts post printing

I'd check that there's nothing that's fallen into the rear paper feed that is now causing the rollers to jam and release with the bang you mention.

If you're feeling brave I'd try holding the printer upside down (get a friend to help you and watch out for the scanner sliding out!) and give it a bit of a shake to see if anything drops out.
