Hold the leading edge of the printer just under the LCD display in the front. Lift upward with a firm motion and the lid will swing up upwards. Allow the cartridge carrier a few seconds to stop after it makes its side-to-side motions. You are then free to push the release on the top, front part of the ink cartridge and change out any of the empty cartridges. If you take more than a few minutes to complete this change the printer will move the carrier back to the far right side and not be accessible. If that happens, simply close the lid and reopen to allow the carrier to reposition to the middle of the printer.

I dont know how to prtint


here are some steps to print document.(just make it sure that your printer is properly installed in your computer.including the printer driver.

1. 1

Open a program that allows you to insert text into a document or get on the internet.

If you were to open a program, you would need to type text into the document. If you were to get on the internet, you could skip to step 7.3.



After you have typed text into the document, you need to locate the menu bar, click on file, then point to print.4.



Click on print.5.



When the print dialog box appears, select the printer you want to use (if it is not already selected) and select the number of copies to print.6.



Click OK.

If you were to print a page or pages from the internet, follow steps 3, 4, 5, and 6, except you don't have to type text into a document to print.

L have an HP2420 with the usual line down the left side 1.5 inches from the edge. I cleaned whatever I could see and it is less but still a faint line. We don't have high volume, use only HP cartridges...


Run a "half test". Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1). Print anything. Watch the paper. When it gets about 1/2 way into the printer, open the top cover. Remove the toner. Look down at the paper. Do you see the "usual" line? If yes, replace the toner cartridge. If no the fuser is probably bad.

I can't show ink detail. So, i don't know what time can i change cartridge. I wanna to know how to solve this problem. thanks


1 Check the back of your computer to make sure that the printer is appropriately connected to the computer and is plugged in. If the printer is not plugged into the computer, find the printer jack on the back of the computer and plug it in before you move on to the next step.

2 Click on the "Start" menu button which is located on bottom left hand corner of your screen. Click on the "Settings" bar and notice that a list of functions pop up to the left of the settings button. Click on the control panel icon.

3 Look for the printer/fax icon in the control panel window. Double click on the printer icon.

4 Find the icon for your printer in the opened window and right click on the icon. Now click on the "Preferences" option.

5 Look for the menu box pop up with tabs near the top of the box. Click on the "Services" tab.

6 Click on "Service this device." You will find the button on the Services menu that you just activated.

7 Click on the estimated ink level tab and a graphic will appear indicating how much ink is left in the cartridge.

about 1/2 way into the printer, open the top cover, remove the toner.
Look down at the paper. If you don't see smudged text, the fuser is probably bad.

Canon LBP2900 printer but i don`t know how to print back to back


I take it you are using windows,
Open control panel, open printers and faxes, right click on your printer icon.

Left click on properties, left click on printer preferences, left click on page setup, down near the bottom there is a box called duplex printing, tick that and you are on the way.....

Thinking of buying this printer!


This printer will require 2 different cartridges. 1 Black Ink tank - Canon PG-37 and 1 Color Ink tank - Canon CL-38. It will come with those already in it but most people don't know that they aren't completely filled from the factory. You might get about 1/3 of it to get you started and you'll quickly need to buy a refill so you might as well get it while you're there. You should also keep the top of each box in your wallet for easy reference next time you have to repurchase the ink. Finally, a caveat- with inkjet (as opposed to laser toner) it's use it or lose it as they will dry out over a few months even if not used.
Please rate this solution accordingly! Thanks and keep Fixya.com in mind with any future questions.
