Any reply regarding the matter would be highly appreciated.

This "plastic strip" is called the "carriage encoder strip". This strip dictates the timing of the carriage assembly. If the end slots aren't broken, you can re-attach it. Otherwise, you'll need to replace it. They are about $10.

SOURCE: hp psc 1315 paper jam

Hi,



. Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge inside the all-in-one printer to dissipate before putting your hands or any metal tools inside the chassis.

2.
Pin down the exact location of the jam. The 3 hot spots for a jam are before a sheet completely leaves the paper tray, anywhere between the feed tray and print carriage or between the print carriage and output tray.

3.
Take off the front paper tray if the sheet jammed while still in the front area of the printer. If here, you should be able to see most of the paper.

4.
Pull the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper, leaving a piece deeper inside the machine.

5.
Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed-tray area and print carriage. Carefully remove the jammed paper.

6.
Use the carriage access door to get at a jam further inside the printer. You may need to remove the print carriage to get to the jam.

7.
Replace all parts and return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.

SOURCE: How to Clear carriage jam

Dear it's the carriage jam error. so it mean that your carriage is jam not paper. so open the printer where you insert the cartridge. check whether it is jam or what . cartridge carrier is jam kindly turn off the printer and try to move the cartridge head by hand very gently and if seems to be stuck than check for anything which abort him to move freely so than might be anything like dust or else. when you get success in moving the head put some machine lubricant on the rod on which head moves and check it ok.

SOURCE: My HP 1610 thinks there's a paper jam - when there isnt one.

Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Why does it keep saying tray 1 is empty when its not?


Check the tray gears behind the try in question. With the tray removed from the printer and loaded with paper. Try to turn the rear lift drive gear. Does it lift the tray of paper?
if not check the gears closely. I suspect there broken, also look for fragments of plastic gear in the body of the printer.
if you have broken gears you might like to try shopping on the net for replacements.
Cheers,
Dave.

My handy cam (Hi8) has problem loading the tapes. As soon as you load the tape it will close and in about 5 seconds eject itself.



This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly or a defective clutch in the take-up spool and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

Paper Jam E2 error


On this model, the fuser assembley is mounted to the machine mounts, two of them inboard and outboard.
If the fuser gear is not cracked, this fuser is driven by the white small drive gear on the machine.
This rests close the drive gear. Sometimes you can hear a thumping noise which is coming from the gear skipping over the fuser gear.
This gear needs to be replaced a very involved service process.
Call Xerox for further repair if this is the case. Also behind this gear are many other gears that can cause this same problem. Very involved and time-extensive to repair even for a trained Xerox technition.

13 Paper Jam - but there is no paper inside!


I have a long solution (possibly) to your issue:

Error 13 Paper Jam
  • Paper jams can occur in 3 places: Entry, registration and exit.
  • If the paper isn't picking up out of the paper tray, visually inspect the pickup roller. If it looks shiny, replace it. You should also replace the separation pad as they work together. On the 4L/4P/5P/6P the pickup roller has a plastic shaft that breaks. You'll have to replace the whole pickup assembly. This requires major disassembly of the printer. Check our printer repair kits for your model printer. If you don't see it listed, email us.
  • If you have an HP 4/4+/5 with an optional 500 sheet feeder that's jamming, check the balance knob adjustment. Center it with a full **** of paper for proper operation.
  • If the paper is jamming at registration or anywhere between pickup and exit it could be a number of things. Check the paper path for torn bits of paper or label residue. On the II/III series, remove the metal registration guide plate (2 screws) and check underneath it. If the pickup rollers are moderately worn, the paper will stop just short of the registration roller. On the 4L/4P/5P/6P remove the screw holding the oblique roller assembly (Inside front of printer) and pull out and inspect the assembly and the area under it. On the HP 4/4+/5 pivot up the metal plate and check underneath it. Check the roller assembly on the left side for torn scraps of paper (a flashlight or torch is necessary).
  • Make sure paper cassettes are firmly seated, corner tabs aren't bent. Some trays have lifting springs that could pop out if tray has been dropped.
  • On HP IIP/IIP+/IIIP printers if the paper scrunches up at the toner cartridge you'll need our Inside Accordion Jam Repair Kit.
  • Check your software settings in the program you are attempting to print from. Do you have the correct paper size specified? If you have a different paper size than what is in the tray, you'll get a paper jam.
  • Exit jams are frequently caused by exit sensors. These sensors are typically mounted on the fuser assembly or adjacent to it. They are plastic arms that block and unblock an optical sensor. The arms can get stuck or knocked out of place when clearing paper jams. The optical sensors can also get dirt blocking the photo cell. Clean the sensor and check for free movement and proper installation of the sensor arms.
  • On HP II/III series exit jams are mostly caused by worn gears. The best way to troubleshoot this is to defeat the door interlock (see door interlock photo on troubleshooting page). Press down on the arm on the top right of the fuser. Initiate a test page. While holding down the arm, press one of the metal cartridge detect switches just below the door interlock. Watch the movement of the gears. You will get a 51 error because the door is open. Recycle power to get rid of error. There is an arm gear on the lower right of the fuser that can shed teeth. There is also a 14 tooth gear below the large gear on top of the fuser. You can also manually rotate the large gear and check for binding or crunching. If that happens, then replace the 14 tooth gear. On the door, there are some delivery coupler gears that mate with the fuser and drive the exit roller. Check the gears for excessive wear. Replace if necessary. If the paper gets almost all the way out and jams, replace the exit roller or the exit roller assembly. If the error occurs after fuser replacement, check and see if the connector on the left of the fuser is properly mated with the one in the printer.
  • On HP IIP/IIP+/IIIP printers if the paper has accordion folds on the bottom and jams on exit, order our Top Output Accordion Jam Repair Kit.
  • On HP 4/4+/5 printers the most common cause of exit jams is the exit assembly. Order our 4/4+/5 Exit Jam Repair Kit. Exit jams in the fuser can be caused by a broken fuser drive gear or a broken gear on the fuser. Remove the fuser and check the gear inside the printer for broken teeth. Manually turn the gears on the fuser and check for smooth operation. Check the paper exit sensor arm for proper mounting and free movement.
  • Check to make sure the rear door is closed on the printer. Open doors can cause 13 paper jam indications.
  • On the 5L/6L check the registration sensor arm below the pickup roller. Also check the exit sensor arm (bottom center of the fuser). These arms frequently get stuck or dislodged clearing paper jams. On these printers, if you are experiencing frequent paper jams, order our 5L/6L Multi-Sheet/No Feed Repair Kit

Good luck with it, I love the HP LaserJet 4 series of printers. I used to warm my coffee on the top of the fuser when I was doing large print jobs :-)

If this information helps, please give me a rating, thanks!

Computer disc drive door will not close and the computer is on


Try this: Computer is off and feed tray is open.

Try to play the feed tray, pull it out gently fully and observed if it is smooth. You should feel the gear. Then push it back gently but not close it to its bezel. Then repeat process four times. Then push it fully to close. This method tries to reseat it gear and locks inside. Then power on. It should closed upon powering the unit.

If you don't feel the gears it could be the motor belt connecting the driving motor and the gear is detached or been broken.

It could be also the loading mechanism is stuck.

When this happens replace or disassemble the unit and realigned it gears or loading mechanism. The second I don't recommend it coz of the laser part inside.

What are the troubleshooting in ecg?


Those are some examples of ECG malfunctions and troubleshooting however there are to many more problems that you can find in ECG equipment. If the problem is not on this short list you can contact us. Or another Medical Repair Organization (MROs).
  • Symptom: Machine runs, but the thermal tip stylus does not write or writes very lightly.
  • Possible cause: (1) Too little heat on the stylus tip, (2) insuficient stylus pressureon the paper.
  • Troubleshooting: (1) Using a insulated probe, such as a srewdriver, gently press the stylus onto the paper. (2) Is a dark line appears on the paper, the problem is too little pressure, but if no dark line appears, the problem is not enough heat.
  • Symptom: Smeared trace
  • Possible causes: Worn stylus or incorrectly loaded paper.
  • Trobleshooting: Check paper loading and if proper, check stylus, for wear, pitting, or another irregularities.

Lexmarkx73 Won't feed paper through while printing


1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

Hp 2355 all in one error message


reset to factory defaults, also check the whole printer for paper jams. A paper jam can often casue smaller pieces to get stuck in gears or rollers. The message about opening and closing the lid is how the printer knows you went in to check it and closeing it triggers it to try again. If thers still a jam it will keep giving the message. The fist jam was caused by something, check and make sure there isnt any pieces of plastic broken off inside. If it has a rear access panel, check there also.

Receipt printer TM-U220 not working


After looking at the description of this printer, the following suggestions: 1. This uses an external power supply- is the printer power indicator lit? If not, then perhaps the external power supply is dead, or the connection where it plugs into the printer is broken. Sometimes the connector can itself be broken, or where it solders onto the circuit board, causing a dead condition. A break in the wire also. 2. If printer is getting power- check the paper path for something foreign lodged- a torn piece of paper etc. 3. There should be a paper present sensor somewhere also, which checks if the unit is out of paper. There is possibly a lever which contacts the paper- check if this lever is broken or stuck. 4. You could try printer on a different computer, to narrow the problem to either the printer or to the computer/cash register. 5. Have you checked the software? Is printer properly setup (drivers), and set as the default printer? Does a printjob appear in the queue? Lastly, there could be a problem with the electronics, which would require technical repair, or replacement of the unit.
