SOURCE: New Printer will not go past "Please wait..."

what you need to do is to remove the inks and the printhead again and then install it. You just put the printhead improperly. Then once you have cleared the error connect it to your computer and upgrade the firmware by going to www.kodak.com/go/downloads

I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Contact Kodak. I think it's the batch of printers that were made around this time. I just contacted them (mine is the same age and I'm getting the same error), and they are sending me a new printer.

Hi

Try to clean the print head manually until ink flows. Rub the print head into a plain paper with rubbing alcohol until in flows. Then try to print again.

Clean also the contact point of the ink cartridge by a cotton swab to clean some dirty on it and try to plug back ink cartridge again.

Try this solution also,
Remove the USB cable into the printer and leave the printer on.
Remove all the cartridges.
Close the cartridge door and wait for the INSERT INK MESSAGE to appear.
Disconnect the power cable and from the power source supply.
Move the carriage using your hand from the original position to the other side of the printer and then move it back to original position. Wait for couple of minutes
Reconnect power cord and turn on the printer.
Return all the ink cartridges and close the door. Wait for the calibration process.
Print the test page to check if it working.
Reconnect the USB cable and try to print again.

If still not working, maybe the ink cartridge is defective. If under warranty, return it for free replacement.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

Error 5200


This error indicates that the Waste Ink tank is full. In some cases, resetting the counter will fix clear the error, but in some cases, it couldn't be fixed until you clear or clean the ink pads inside the waste ink tanks.
First try this:
  1. With the printer turned on, unplug it.
  2. Open the top and bring the ink cartridge holder to the middle.
  3. Raise the gray bar and remove the print head assembly with the cartridges in it.
  4. Lower the gray bar with the head missing and close the top with the head out.
  5. Restore the power,wait till The printer wakes up.
  6. It will tell you to install the cartridges, do so.
  7. Restore the print head, close the top and the printer should resume working.

If the above trick didn't help, watch this video and follow the instructions [the model is different, but the method is more or similar, you'll only need to know how to dismantle the machine]:


You can also follow this "How to" [Click Here].

Let me know if you need further help.

Will not print . machine tries to engage cartridges no succes checked that cartridges are installed correctly. model D2360.


Remove the ink, turn off the printer, turn on the printer after several seconds, wait for the printer to cycle and give you a "no ink" error light. Open the lid of the printer. Wait for the print head to position itself, then install your ink and close the lid.

Many people ram the ink in before the printer does that last cycle; it can lock the printer, cause an error, or in a worst case scenario it can strip the gears on the head permanently damaging the printer.

4. Then close the printer access door WITHOUT the printhead and the cartridges.
5. unplug the printer and wait for 30 seconds and plug it back
6. it will give you a missing printhead error
7. install the printhead first, close it and then it should give an error missing cartridges. install the cartridges and if you no longer have the error upgrade the firmware by going to www.kodak.com/go/downloads

HP L7580 Printer Head Problem??


I had the same problem plus had problems with message indicating "alignment failed" and to monitor the blakc/yellow print head.  The print quality was very bad in black.  It seemed to print about 1.5 lines and then skip a line. When I replaced black and yellow it seemed to get better print quality was just as bad.  Finally called HP support. These are the steps they told me to do.

 

1. disconnect power

2. remove all ink cartridges

3. remove and clean contacts of both print heads

4. perform simultaneously the following press 6 and # on the keypad while at the same time plug in the power.

5.  --- the printer came on (black squares on the screen) and then shut off.

6. --- was told to power up the printer

7. Printer began checking device(took a long time)

8. Printer began aligning printer (took a long time)

9. Finally finished = Message on screen "Alignment Failed"

10. Still not printing and hours later.

11. They will be replacing printer

12. Then they hit you with that you should buy a set of inkjet cartidges from them at $109.96 -  warranty 2yr, works better, etc.

13. Sent to somebody else to arrange shipping new printer.

14. Free shipping 5-7 days - big deal -  placed my work (home office) on hold.

16.  Service help - listen when it follows the script, otherwise like talking to a door  (In India).

17. Finally get transfered to somebody else and he informs me that he is not authorize to give me a new printer, need to talk to somebody else who is not there.  Advises to call during business hours.  He said that he could request that I be called back but that it could take a 1.5 days to get back to me.

18. I am going to call tomorrow morning during business hours - wish me luck.

 

I don't know what is awaiting but IN The Future I will not talk to anybody from INDIA - they do not have authority and do not listen (but maybe they don't listen because they can't do anything about it).

 

Good Luck!!

HP 3500 color printer


If you can see what is stopping the door from closing, and it appears to be on the right side of the printer near the top where the cartridge engaging pins are, and you remove all the cartridges and transfer belt and the door closes well, you may want to try this: There is a small silver screw at the top of the right corner of the case. When our front door would not close properly with the cartridges and transfer belt assembly installed, I took off the right side cover and took out that top corner screw. Then I slid the long white engaging rack that is on the lower right side of the printer toward the front door, which retracted those cartridge pins that are triangularly-shaped on their ends. Once the door would close properly with the cartridges and the transfer belt installed,and the pins engaged properly to open the cartridges as the door closed, I put the top corner screw back in and the side cover back on. I hope that helps you.
