2430DL Will not finish calibration 17H

I removed and replaced all cartridges, each time closing the cover and letting the printer move to the next spot. Once all were in it tries to continue calibrating but once it "thumps" through a process a couple times, the 3rd time it makes a "buzzing" sound and returns to error 17h.
Any ideas? Printer (model 2550) won't print: sucks the paper in part way, makes that buzzing sound, stops printing, and displays error 17. Online manuals say rack problem, but my rack is spinning with no problem.
Happens 95% of the time. Had limited success printing b&w only.

Thank you! Worked great. In my case I only got it after reinstalling my black cartridge; I only needed to spin it and replace that one to get it to reset.

My hp d2360 is not working properly and i bought new cartridge but printer wasnt recognize the cartrige..


Please follow the steps below to install the Cartridge:

Install or replace the print cartridges
  1. Turn the printer on. The cartridge cradle will not move if the power is not on.
  2. Open the printer cover. Figure 1: Printer cover openc00658567.gif
  3. Wait until the print cartridge cradle moves to the center of the printer and is idle and quiet.
  4. If you are replacing a print cartridge, press down on the print cartridge to be replaced, and then slide it out of the print cartridge cradle. If you are installing print cartridges for the first time, go to the next step.
    NOTE: HP recommends using a print cartridge protector to store an opened print cartridge for later use. Figure 2: Print cartridge being inserted into a print cartridge protectorc00658568.gif
  5. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and carefully remove the plastic tape. Hold the print cartridge so that the copper strips are on the bottom and facing toward the printer. Figure 3: Removing the protective tapec00658569.gif
    CAUTION: Do not touch the print cartridge ink nozzles or copper contacts. Touching these parts will result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections. Do not remove the copper strips. They are required electrical contacts. Figure 4: Print cartridge facing upc00658570.gif 1 - Ink nozzles 2 - Copper contacts
  6. Slide the print cartridge at a slight upward angle into the cradle until the cartridge snaps into place. Figure 5: Installing the print cartridgec00658571.gif
  7. Repeat steps 3-4 for the remaining print cartridge.
  8. Close the printer cover. The printer automatically prints a calibration page.

Green light flashing wont print


Many possible issues:
1) the cover is open (close cover)
2) Out of paper (add paper)
3) printer can't pick up media (change media, change printer print mode setting or paper type selection)
4) Paper jam (remove all media from the paper trays, press the power button once, remove the back cover and pull the jammed paper from that point then close the cover, reload the paper and try to print)
5) Problem with the cartridge (remove the cartridges and then reinsert them, try a cleaning cycle. Alternatively manually clean the cartridges (remove them from the printer and power down and unplug the unit). Use distilled or bottled water and cotton swabs. Slightly moisten the swab and wipe the face, edges of the cartridges - do not touch the contacts or nozzles. Wipe down the underside of the print cartridge cradle walls. Reinsert the cartridges, close the cover and power up the unit. Calibrate the cartridges. If this doesn't help, replace the cartridges.)
6) Loss of electrical contact between the carriage connections (press and hold the power button and open and close the top cover 4 times. Look at the resulting self-test print out. Remove and reinsert the cartridges and try to print. Next clean the cartridges and cartridge cradle as above. Replace the cartridges.)

I hope one of these solutions work. Otherwise the printer needs service.

Since we replaced a colour cartridge, the printer runs calibration constantly and will not finish the cycle. Any ideas? I've tried various cartridges but the same thing always happens


This is an answer to most of the problems of "continuous calibration" in the HP 3600.
When the printer begins to constantly calibrate and falls in line so we have a problem, there are several causes for that problem and must be discarded from the simplest solution to the most complex.
Let's begin:

SOLUTION 1: The first thing to do is turn off the printer, and remove the cartridges, toner dirty or if the internal parts of the printer remove the excess, if there is dirt in the transfer belt clean.then close the front cover and turn on the printer without cartridges. then open the lid, place the magenta cartridge, and close the lid again, and so putting the four cartridges. If the problem persists try the next solution.

Solution 2: We must be alert to any strange noises in the printer, it is likely that one of the sticks is failing, if we are a strange noise came from, and replace the cartridge.

SOLUTION 3: There are times that it is software problem can be solved with a "COLD RESET" to do this we must turn the printer, and press the green button several times in the main menu until you see some options, navigate to the Down Arrow button until COLD RESET appears, press OK. the printer will restart and initialize. then restart and probably reached OK status.

SOLUTION 4: Sometimes by changes in temperature and environment where the printer is out of calibration sensor, to do a need to upgrade the firmware of the printer, usually ends the problem here. To download the firmware of the printer with the improvement due to "Countermeasure for multiple Successive Causing Environmental Sensor Calibrations." is in the following link:

SOLUTION 5: If any of these options serves, it is likely that the mirrors of laser printer are dirty, this requires us to print a sheet to observe defects in print (moved, blurred, misplaced shadows), if any of these defects appear we disassemble the printer for cleaning the laser ... in this link are instructions

How do I change the print head on a Xerox 8500?


Hi there,

How to remove a printhead
  1. Press the on-line / off-line key on the printer operator panel to set the printer off-line.
  2. Use the upper softkeys to scroll to the 'Replace printhead' card
  3. Press the softkey below the 'Replace printhead' card to enter the wizard.
    An introduction screen displays the message 'Use this wizard to replace printheads. A roll is needed for calibration.'
  4. Press the key for 'Next'.
    The screen displays the message 'Select roll to use'.
    The system does a calibration at the end of the wizard. You can only calibrate on the defined media types. When calibration is not possible with the media available on the printer, the system asks you to load the correct media. When calibration is possible with one of the rolls, the system automatically uses the correct media roll. When calibration is possible with both rolls, use the lower softkeys to select the roll to use.
  5. Press the key for 'Next'.
    The screen displays the message 'Carriage moving to centre position...' while the carriage moves to the centre.
    The screen displays 'Open top cover.'
  6. Open the top cover. The screen displays the message 'Replace printheads' and the printheads that you must replace. Find the correct printhead number on the printhead carriage.
  7. Press the front of the printhead cover to unlock the cover.
  8. Open the printhead cover.
  9. Pull out the printhead and remove it.
How to place a printhead
  1. Remove the protective tape from the new printhead.
    Do not touch the contact and nozzle areas of the printhead after you remove the protective tape.
  2. Place the new printhead in the printhead holder.
    The printhead only fits in one way.
  3. Close the printhead cover.
  4. After you replaced the defective printhead, press the softkey for 'Next'
  5. The screen displays the message 'Make sure that all head covers are properly positioned.'
    Press the key for 'Done'.
    The screen displays the message 'Close top cover.'
  6. Close the top cover.
    The screen displays the message 'Carriage moving to home position...'
  7. The screen displays 'Calibrating...'.
    The calibration process takes several minutes.
    You can stop the calibration process at any time. Press the key for 'Cancel' to stop the calibration process.

Most likely you received this message after a toner was replaced. Reseat the cartridge and restart the printer. If that doesn't work remove all of the toner cartridges manually and reinstall.

Turn off the printer and open the top cover. Follow the toner cartridge all the way to the right side of the printer (on the white part). You should see a hole that looks like a cross. Take a pen or key and push down on the black button in that hole. While you are holding it down rotate the toner cartridge towards you. You want to get the colored roller on the cartridge about 1/2in away from the metal bar that says "consumable reorder". You should be in a position to take out the toner. Let go of the hole and remove the cartridge. Repeat the steps until all of the cartridges have been removed.

Turn the printer back on at this point. You are going to get toner not installed messages on the printer. Open the top cover and the cyan tray will be in place. Shake the toner and install. Close the cover and let it cycle to the next color (black). Repeat the process until all cartridges are installed.

If you are still getting the error you either have a bad cartridge or the carousel that the toners sit in is damaged.

Minolta Magicolor Fatal Error


Remove each of your cartridges one at a time and see if you can spin the toner rollers by pushing on the little white plastic gears with your finger. They will be tight but you should be able to spin the roller by moving the little gears around.

My printer started giving the Fatal Error Code 17H and I did all the removal of the four color cartridges and re-seating each of them to no avail. After removing each cartridge and checking to see if I could rotate the toner roller I found that the yellow cartridge was extremely tight. I took the cartridge outside and used a can of compressed air to blow all the toner off the roller and tapped the cartridge on all corners and shook it back and forth several time. Finally I was able to get the toner roller so that it would rotate when pushing the little white gears like the other three cartridges.

After replacing the cartridge in the printer it worked with no more error codes. Hopefully this will fix the problem until I can order a new yellow cartridge.
