The manual may talk about a button (or combination) to press to get the cartridge to the centre. Some CANON printers do this.

Sometimes the ink cartridge carrier won't automatically move to its loading position even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Follow the steps below:


1. Unplug the printer from the power source.

2. With the cover open, hold the solid white strip that connects from the carrier assembly to the ink cartridge carrier and gently slide the cartridge carrier to the center of the printer.

3. Remove the used cartridges.

4. Load the new cartridges. Close the cover.

5. Plug the printer back to the power source.

MFC-665CW "unable to print" 30 error what can I do to resolve this problem? I think I had a papaer jam and my sister pulled the paper out and still had an issue. help!!


Several conditions may cause the error message Machine Error 30 to be displayed on the LCD. This error may be the result of one of the following:
  • The print head carriage is failing to return to its home position to the far right of the unit.
  • Both of the springs located on each side of the carriage is out of place.
  • The cartridge covers may not be locked securely in place.

Please follow the instructions listed below to correct this problem:

  1. Press the INK button on the Control Panel.

  2. Using the dial pad, press 2 (Replace Ink). The display will prompt you PLS OPEN COVER.

  3. Pull the Scanner Cover release lever located under the Control Panel and lift the Scanner cover. The carriage should move to the left in order to replace the ink. If the carriage does not move to the left, your machine will require service.

  4. After the carriage moves to the left, press down each cartridge cover and remove all ink cartridges from the machine. There are 2 springs located on each side of the carriage that hold the print head against the carriage assembly. They are thin silver springs approximately 64mm or 2 1/2 inches, set at an angle.

  5. If the spring is out of place, press the spring back into place. You can use the spring on the opposite side of the carriage as a guide as to the correct position.

  6. If the spring is not out of place, reinstall each ink cartridge.

  7. After installing the ink cartridges, close the covers and verify they are securely locked into place. Your machine then prepares for a head cleaning and goes online. The LCD screen prompts you to verify if a new ink cartridge was inserted for each color you removed. For example, DID YOU CHANGE BLCK 1. YES 2. NO.

  8. Press 2 (No).
Note
    If you decided to place a new ink cartridge in for any of the colors when uninstalling and reinstalling the cartridges in the above process, press 1 (Yes). The machine will automatically go through a cleaning cycle.

The unit should then return to date and time. If Machine Error 30 continues to appear on the display, your unit will require service.

Hp printer will not detect new ink cartridge has been installed. Thought it was the cartridge, bought a new one and it still says it needs replaced.


I have had similar problem with my HP C6180. Over several months I have replaced Lt. Magenta at least 6 times. Finally I got a "Cannot Print" message after the 6th full cartridge. I tried removing/replacing cartridges, doing a hard reset, and clearing the hardware failure status (press # and *, enter code 1,2,3, scroll to 'System Configuration' press OK then scroll to 'Hardware Confifuration) - all to no avail.
I decided to remove the BIOS battery. Only do this if you're ready trash your C6180 and able to buy a new printer immediately! Remove 2 the black screws holding the left side panel in place and remove it to reveal the circuit board. Remove 5 silver screws securing the circuit board, and carefully tilt it up. On the back side, center front, is a silver 3 Volt Lithium battery; remove it. Cover the printer and let stand overnight. I did this, and when I put the battery back in and powered up the printer, error messages were gone, and it printed normally. I was lucky, but if you're prepared to take a total loss on your C6180, this might just work. My theory is that the hardware "forgot" it' error message.
