Question about HP J3680 Officejet All In One Printer

6 Answers

Hi, Please help me. My 14 year old son undertook to set up my new fax machine this morning. In his haste he accidently palced the wrong ink cartridge in the right side cartridge holder. Then he persevered and forced the cartridge intended for the right side into the left cartridge holder. I am unable to get them out. Can anyone tell me what to do? Much appreciated, Markus

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Suggestion:

  • power on the printer;
  • soon as the carriage moves out of rest/lock position, unplug from the mains;
  • the carriage should have moved to an almost center position ;
  • insert a flat bladed screwdriver in between the far end of the ink cartridge and the casing/cartridge holder;
  • the screwdriver should not be inserted that deep, there are electrodes in that area (lower) that could get damaged;
  • gently twist the screwdriver;
  • the idea is to dislodged the top portion from the rear;
  • the cartridge installs-and removed from an angled/inclined position.
A friendly reminder, the possibility of further damage is always there, care and caution should be exercised.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

The cartridges are are very firmly got stuck internaasly in the socket just tap the cartridges slowly to make them loose.if you find id risky then do not try because if by chance the socket where the cartridges are installed breaks down.it will cost you near to $ 25 for only jusr replacement socket.taking it to the local repair center will not cost you more then $5 for removing this.as its just a job of 1 minute not more then that.but if you feel it will crack do not force.

Hey,

just follow the instructions pointed out on the user manual that came with the printer to first get the cartridges to come to the center so you can get them out, as they where forced in to the wrong slots, it will have to be 'forced' out from them aswell, hopefully this wont break the printer.

you may attempt to help the cartridges with a flat screwdriver.

ones they are out inspect them for any damage and insert them in to the right slots and see if it functions.

How can i install the ink film?


Hello :

If you mean change then :


1: Turn the power off on your fax machine.

2: Open the front or top control panel Make sure not to force the door open.

3:Locate the ink cartridge. Gently pull the cartridge out. Set the cartridge aside.

4:Take the new cartridge out of the package and reserve the packaging. Remove the protective covers over the copper connectors.

5:Insert the new cartridge into the fax machine with the brand label toward you. Now place the old cartridge into the plastic wrapping and box that you reserved from the new cartridge. Recycle the old cartridge or dispose of it in the garbage.

6:Close the fax machine's access panel. Turn the fax machine's power back on.

Warning:
1:Touching the copper connectors on the ink cartridge could damage the cartridge. 2:Make sure that you purchase the correct cartridge for your fax machine. Purchasing the wrong one could damage the cartridge or your fax machine. good luck . please don't forget to rate !

I hav installaed new cartridges but the is offline and i cant


I have a Printer problem - "Ink System Failure" - Ink System has failed. Unable to copy, receive faxes, or print. Refer to printer documentation. Error: 0xc18a001". This is what the glass on the left side says. I don't use faxes, so don't care of that. My Son installed an ink system, which of course is a lot cheaper to use, quite some time ago which has been working super. Yesterday the "Ink System Failure" sign came on and my Son was here this morning, but couldn't figure out what is wrong with the printer. I am in Heidelberg, Germany and buy my equipment in the AAFES PX. There is no HP technical service available to us Military people. The Germans won't work on American goods. Is there any hope for me? Thank you.
Phil Gatchell
P.S. I am the Adjutant/Finance Officer of an American Legion Post in Heidelberg and use my color printer extensively. So I am in a bind.

Hi there. This message on a Canon fax means that the ink is low. CRT stands for cartridge. Replace the FINE cartridge, as ink is low.

If you need further assistance, please post back. Otherwise, thank you for using and rating FixYa!
