Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

My Samsung 1740 printer makes a big noise when I try to print a page and goes to "error" mode automatically. If I open the cartridge cover (without taking out the cartridge), the noise stops. Please h

The cartridge is pretty new and the printer was working fine till last week. I just move to a different corner in the same room and the strange noise started.

SOURCE: Auto cutter does not cut automatically

TM 220a and TM 220b should come with auto cutters
You have to unscrew the metal tab under the printer, you will find two sets of DIP switches. upper one is DWS 1 and the lower one is DWS 2. On DWS 2 you need to have jumper #2 ON. this enables or activates the auto cutter on printers. Good luck...

SOURCE: Brother DPC-165C has 'Init Unable AF' error

Yup. I suspect the head has been removed from the unit. There are adjustments on some printers. It was assembled wrong. The grating noise is likely the auto cleaner. If it cannot go 'home' the unit will not initialize. Possibly the head detect sensor is broken or covered. If the head will not home (moves out and back more than once or slams home hard), 'Init Unable AF'. You may be able to order a service manual from Brother for this. A repair shop can order the manual as well. (I suspect you need a new print head as well. You might want to replace the printer) see tips on bubblejet printers.

On the control panel of the printer -

Press the Setup Button
Scroll till you find Tools Options - Press OK
Look for Printer Alignment - Press OK

IF the alignment goes thru well, your printer will be able to print/scan/copy.

If it still makes grinding noise or makes unusual noise, Turn off the printer and open the rear access door. Clean the rollers with lint free cloth. Close the door. Open the front access door and check if the carriage moves freely ( cartridge holder ) and check for any obstruction.

If you tried the above steps and still unable to make the printer work, it could be hardware failure.

Regards,
Ron

My lexmark x5630 has been showing paper jam but there is nothing inside the printer thats stoping it please help.


Hello. Try removing all sheets of paper from the printer. Make sure to check in the feeder by peeking inside it. Clear any foreign objects. Open the printer cover, and remove the cartridges. Clear any foreign objects around the cartridge carrier. Close the printer cover without the cartridges. Unplug the printer from the power outlet. Plug the power back after 10-15 seconds. It should power on automatically. When printer asks for the cartridges, load them back in. Close the cover down. Printer will print an alignment page. Just let it finish print the page. When there's no more error, try to make a copy or print from the computer to check. Hope this helps.

Top cover open error when printing


I had the same problem and fixed it by sticking the end of a pen (the writing part) in the hole on the right side when you open the top cover.

In other words if you open the top cover and look on the top cover you will see a tab that goes into a hole(the hole is next to the picture of the print cartridges). There is a hole with switch/tab(I don't know the proper terminology) on it that is activated when you close the top cover. If you stick the end of a pen in that hole it should activate something and the print cartridges will start to make noise and move around. You can then close the cover and it should close all the way.

You can then try to print a test page.

Good Luck

Stalled printer cartridges


Sounds like an issue with the print carriage. When it's out of alignment and tries to print, it can make awful noises. HP.com has a web page that describes a number of troubleshooting steps when you have print carriage issues:

Carriage Jam Errors

There's also a related web page having to do with the noise coming from the printer:

Noisy Print Carriage

Hope this helps. Good luck.

Samsung ML 1740 Printing Very Light


If the entire page is light, the print resolution setting is too light or Toner Save Mode is on. Adjust the print resolution and Toner Save Mode in the printer properties.


Make sure TONER SAVE MODE is NOT ENABLED!

Error Code problem


My mother's printer had a similar problem, I was able to find this solution on the HP site.

Disconnect the USB cable from the back of the printer, but leave the printer turned on.

Open the cover of the printer and remove the print cartridges.

Close the cover and wait for the Insert Ink Cartridges message to display.

Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer and wait for one minute.

Reconnect the power cord. If the printer does not automatically turn on, press the Power button.

Open the cover and reinsert the print cartridges.

Close the cover. If prompted, print a calibration page.

Reconnect the USB cable, and try to print a print job from the computer.

I hope this helps you too...
