Please follow the steps given below:

1. Unplug all cables from the back of the printer.
2. Open the front cover and look above the steel rod. You should see a black belt with rubber teeth on it. (On some models, the cartridge access is very small, but the belt should still be visible.)
3. Take the top part of the belt and move it gently to the right. The cartridges should come towards the center.
4. If the cartridges will not move, tilt the printer on its back and try moving the belt again.
5. If it still will not move, try putting your finger inside the area where the cartridges are stuck (with the printer still on its back), and push them firmly against the cartridge carrier holder while you move the belt with your other hand.
6. Once the cartridge carrier is in the middle, please make sure that the cartridges are snapped firmly into the cartridge carrier. Note: Make sure that these cartridges are the correct models for your printer. Once the cartridges are seated properly, they should not become loose inside the carrier.
7. Plug all the connections back in and power the printer up.
8. Open the front cover again to see if the cartridges slide to the center.

You helped me CLEAN the HP PSC 1610
it had MASIVE amounts of waisted ink
in the area that it WANTS to waste ink
to keep the cartridges FLOWING...
BUT... NOW ... HERE IS A SOLUTION TO
THE CLICKING NOISE
THE RATCHIT NOISE
HP PSC 1610 NOISE
It seems that HP (as with most all manufacturers)
has DESIGNED-IN A PART THAT WILL BREAK ! ! !
PICTURE ATTACHED
explanation...
opened the mid section of the printer
moved the ink holder module to the far left
pushed the cleaning tray
(it moves to you and away from you)
away towards the rear of the machine
used masive amounts of isopropyl alcohol
and an old toothbrush
to clean most of the gunk ink buld-up
(started with q-tips but it was not enough)
After cleaning ... the machine worked again...
BUT
that noise was still there
after carefull inspection
I saw the problem
there was a hairline crack in a small plastic part
above a rotating gear
when the carriage came to the right
it was suposed to move that part
off or away from the gear
but because it was cracked
it did not move properly
SOLUTION
crazy glue or super glue
and shim to hold in place while drying
(maby heat with a light bulb while drying)

A child moved the head in my Epson Stylus Printer


Turn the printer off -- listen for noise as the head should move to its "parking" position.

Turn the printer on, and listen for noise.

If none, then the mechanics that move the head are broken.

Is the printer still under manufacturer's warranty -- although the warranty may _not_ cover child-inflicted breakage.

Please help!!! My ink came out through my printer with the picture... how do i get the ink cassette out? it is jamed..


Hello,

Kindly open the cover of your printer or the cover at the back of your printer then make sure that the printer is on. Then wait the ink holder will stop moving and automatically stop in the center of the printer (if inkjet printer) then remove the ink cassette or if it is laser or toner then just remove the ink cassette automatically after you open the cover of the printer. Also to have more information kindly referto your printer manual to have more step by step instructions in removing and installing new ink cassette.

Thanks

So you cant get the ink tanks in place properly?

Have you tried this method to ensure they're properly seated? Is the printer on or off when you try to seat the tanks?

Refer to the following steps to verify the ink tanks are seated correctly:
  1. Confirm that the printer is powered on and press the Open button. (The paper output tray will open.)

    mp800_openbutton.gif

  2. Lift the scanning unit (printer cover) completely. (The print head will move to the replacement position.)

    mp500_scanningunit_open.gif

  3. Open the inner cover.

    CAUTION:
    a. Do not try to manually move or stop the Print Head Holder.
    b. Do not touch any metal parts.


  4. Press down on the ink tank until a click is heard, thereby making sure the ink tank is seated properly.

    Note:
    Make sure that the ink tank is inserted in the slot that corresponds to the ink tank's color.



  5. Ensure that all the ink tanks are installed properly and the ink tank lamps light red.

    Note:
    Ink Tank Lamp
    You can check the status of each ink tank according to the way its lamp flashes.
    • - On: The printer is ready to print.
    • - Slow flashing (at about three second interval): Ink is low. Prepare a new ink tank.
    • - Fast flashing (at about one second interval): Ink tank is empty, or the printer is not ready due to an error.
    • - Off: An error has occurred and the printer is not ready to print.
  6. Close the inner cover and the scanning unit (printer cover).

    Note:
    1. When closing the scanning unit (printer cover), be careful not to jam your finger.
    2. When starting printing next time, the print head cleaning launches automatically.

Added new ink cartridge. Still wont work


It needs ink in both the color and the black in order to work properly. It is just something HP does to make sure that the printer will work properly.

Erropr code #1200 Lexmark X4270


Tried what blkghost suggested above but had to tweak his advice slightly.

Turn off power to the printer and unplug it from the back of the printer.

Insert the power cord back into the printer. You will hear some clicks and motors moving. Pull out the cord again when this happens.

Open the cartridge bay by pulling the face forward and lifting the bay door up. The cartridge carousel most likely will not come to the center.

trying physically pulling the carousel to the middle. (NOT BY THE RIBBON CABLE) If you can not pull it to the middle push it far right as possible. Listen for a click.

After pushing to the right and hearing a click you should then be able to pull the carousel towards the middle easily. Remove the ink cartridges and power up the printer again.

You will receive an error along the lines of black cartridge missing. Open the bay, insert the cartridges, close the bay.

YAY problem fixed.

I had the same problem too. Brand new unit and 5100 error comes on after power up. There is nothing jaming the ink cartiage, and it only moves a little bit to the left then jams back to the right. I can't even load in new ink cartiages. It's going back to the shop today.
