Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I have a old but servicable Sony printer. Sony up-dr150 photo printer ver 1.22. I am getting a DOOR OPEN ERROR that will not clear. Below is what I done and condition of the unit. I want to test test the door sensor but can not locate it. Any ideas of suggestion will greatly appreciated. I have straightened the locking pins so they engage better. Installed a new roll of paper and film. I can still push the door a little further closed (less than a 16th inch) but pushing the door all the way in and powering on does not clear the error. Part of the small black arms the go under each side of the top film roll have broken off. I have tried powering on with them in the up position and taped in a down position. I am missing the plastic print holder from the front of the unit. Error log: #1 feed pos error, #2 feed pos error, #3 feed pos error, #4 cap pass error, #5 cap pass error, #6 cap pass error, #7 cap pass error, #8 cap pass error, #9 cap pass error, #10 cap pass error, #11 cap pass error, #12 cap pass error, #13 cap pass error, #14 cap pass error, #15 cap pass error, #16 cap pass error, #17 tkup mtr error, #18 tkup mtr error, #19 tkup mtr error, #20 cap pass error Current Prints: 0 Head Prints: 353 Takeup Prints: 353 Supply Prints: 353 Total Prints: 353 Ribbon Info: #1 UPC-R154H, #2 R154H 2.10, #3 00550, #4 28XET571, #5 000, #6 2011.02.25, #7 000 0000, #8 2012.08.06, #9 DNP, #10 Normal
The door closes onto a micro switch. I suspect there will be your fault.

This "plastic strip" is called the "carriage encoder strip". This strip dictates the timing of the carriage assembly. If the end slots aren't broken, you can re-attach it. Otherwise, you'll need to replace it. They are about $10.

I just figured out my issue. It had to do with DEP − Data Execution
Prevention. I had remembered that I was fooling around with this a couple
weeks ago and had changed it to "Turn on DEP for all programs and services
except those I select" in which I had Windows Explorer checked. I just got
done selecting the original which states "Turn on DEP for essential Windows
programs and services only", rebooted, and now I can print again to my hp
The DEP can be found under control panel−>system−>Advanced Tab−>Performance
Settings−>Data Execution Prevention Tab
Hope this helps.

“Orange Light blinking and printer not responding” is indicative of no paper or serious ink cartridge issue. Once the no paper is eliminated the scenarios below should be examined. I am saying this from experience.
i. Ink cartridge has developed incompatibility or is incompatible
The Solution is to try an older/another cartridge (doesn’t matter if ink is finished. You must replace cartridge one at a time). If lights stop blinking it confirms that your cartridge has become incompatible or developed incompatibility. Also if your printer is the type that can work with only one cartridge, remove one after the other (closing back the lid/cover) to determine which in the set (black or color) has become incompatible. At the instance the incompatible one is removed and you close the lid, the blinking will stop (for printers that can print with one ink cartridge only). Just replace the incompatible one and start printing again. In most cases the issue is always with one cartridge. But if both are affected, you have to replace both. Because of this type of problem, always keep used cartridges somewhere safe; they come in handy for this type of troubleshooting.
ii. The Cartridge electronic panel is dirty
The electronic panel on the cartridge that makes contact with the cartridge carrier inside the printer is dirty and needs cleaning. This electronic panel is front part of the cartridge with copper “dots”.
The Solution is to try to clean this panel with a piece of folded tissue paper soaked in a bit of methylated spirit. Also try to clean the area in the cartridge carrier/holder that makes contact with the cartridge’s electronic panel (Usually this is more difficult). If you cannot reach it with your fingers, use a stick or something with tissue wrapped around it. Allow to dry well and return the cartridges, close the cover. The blinking should stop if the electronic panel is the issue. Once the blinking stops the printer will print.
