Sorry to be a few days in getting back to you. We had a death in the family and settling all the affairs has occupied most of my time for most of this past month or so. All is settled now, except for the memories.

As to your question, there is some variance from one maker to another and from one model to another.

I believe in your case, excess ink is carried out a flow tube to a reservoir and after printing a fixed number of times the Epson software gives you a warning message that the ink tank is full and to empty it.

Is this the case in your model? You are not seeing absorber pads?

When the print head cartridge is at rest a platform rises to seal off the print heads and prevent them from drying out. It is this platform that has the excess ink overflow tube that runs to a reservoir.

So, let me know if I'm spot on or way off base and if the later, give me a hint as to what you are seeing and what the problem happens to be. I'll be glad to help you get through this and if need be I can bring another expert into this discussion.

Are you getting an error code or message when you try to print that the ink pads need to be cleaned again?

I just need this feedback to point you in the right direction and not just assume any thing. Thanks, and thanks for using FixYa. I'm here to help.

Sounds like you knocked the vacuum pipe off at the pump cap when you had it apart. Take it apart again and check the vacuum pipe for connection, blockages and being trapped between cases when you reassembled it.

This occurs if the CD/DVD tray is open. Check if the tray is in place and try again.

HOW DO I un-lock the scanner on a Brother MFC 7420?

Unfortunately, the MFC-7420 doesn't have a physical lock switch. You need to turn off the all-in-one and wait for the unit to clear its memory. If the error recurs after you press the power button again, wait 30 minutes and try again. (Note: you will lose any faxes that are in memory. See the User Guide page 11-5 to save this information.) You can find the manual on the Brother support page for the MFC-7420: . Click on the Manuals & Documents tab. Then click on the Manuals on our Online Solution Center for the English version of the manual. The direct link to the User Guide is currently: .

You can also try unplugging the all-in-one for several minutes to reset the error codes. If the error persists, contact Brother if the MFC-7420 is still under warranty (1 year). If it isn't under warranty, consider replacing the unit. The repair costs may be unreasonable.

I hope this helps.

I have a donated photocopier for the scout group and it has a code which no-one knows. Speaking to an IT Engineer we should be able to rest to factory settings. We have tried Admin as user name and admin...

Really depends on the model/maker.

Why is print quality poor after inserting new ink. Copies are faint and have lines

the cartridge is clogged with ink that has dried and reduced the slit. you need to replace the cartridge with a new one. it happens usually if you recharge the cartridge 3 or 4 times with compatible ink.

Hp laserjet m1522f error 5 turn off and on

Hi, Error 5 is a Scanner error. When turning the printer on, have the lid up so you can watch the scanner movement. Does it move smoothly? It should go through a warm up and you should be able to watch the scanner movement. If there is a problem with the scanner, there isn't a lot you could do except. The service manual says the scanner assembly should be replaced. If it was my printer, I would try to take a closer look at the scanner assembly and check to see if the scanner unit is bound up somewhere, or maybe a drop of 3 in 1 oil on the scanner rails. Let us know what happens.

HP printer psc 2210 all in one

Chances are that you didn't lock down the scanner when you moved the unit. You can attempt to open the unit and move the scanner bar manually to reset it. HPs are very difficult beasts when it comes to their power up check out. It must be fully functional...including all work in most cases. Good luck.
