MECH SS Failure

The problem is with the service station. This is the unit that the carrier "Parks itself" over when it is not printing. It cleans the print heads and collects excess ink. It also fills up with ink. and the ink dries in a big blob.
If the motor is good, if it was working it likely is, The SS probrably got jammed in the move.
Try this:
If you can move the carrier to the left with power off do so.
If not turn machine on and while carrier is to the left unplug the machine.
You need the carrier to the left to expose the SS.
Open the cover as if you were changing printheads.
Look straight down. your looking at the service station.
A shaft with wipers and a gear at one end should turn. A little resistance but jam if alot of ink is caked in the bottom of the unit.
You can clean some of this in from the top and see if the SS frees up as a test at least.
The service station can be removed if required. You need to remove the right cover from the machine.
There are three screws that you should see looking down at the SS from the top They have numbers next to them I beleive, holding the SS in. Everything that moves should move freely.
Hope this Helps Good Luck

Office jet pro 8500 alignment failed error message -black ink intermittently fails.


The following may work: remove all the ink supplies. Remove the printhead and soak it for about 5 minutes in 0.5" of very hot water. Gently blot the printhead on a soft damp paper towel to remove the excess water, then replace in the printer and then reinstall the ink supplies.

Toshiba eStudio 2500c - CA00


This is a pretty complicated issue/problem. there are 5 pages devoted to this issue in the service manual. This issue would be best handled by a technician. but you could try the following....
[CA00] Color registration abnormality
<Color toner low density>
Turn on the copier holding down 0 and 8 and wait till it boots up into its service mode..then enter code 2692 “Prevention of color toner low density / change the zero to 1.
Then change code 2693 “Prevention of color toner low density / Judged number of sheets setting” value to 40 (default 20).
Make sure you have cleaned the main charge units by fully extending the rods with the green handles for each color.(open the front door) and use the plastic wand attached to the front door to clean the laser glass for each color..there is a small **** under each color unit to slid the wand into..felt side down on the wand.

Like I said there are several other complicated ways of fixing this.

my hp office jet pro l7500 indicates the ink has expired in all cartages but the cartgages are new because they were just put in . Before the same error code came up and so bought new cartages. Also the door to the cartages will not stay closed without tape.
