It says i have a automatic alignment problem it shows i have ink i have'nt changed the ink since i brought the printer.

It could be that the cartridges are not seated properly in the cartridge carrier or the encoder strip got unseated from its position. Please follow steps below to fix the problem:
  1. Open the printer cover.
  2. Remove both cartridges from the printer.
  3. While the printer cover is open, check the cartridge area for a loose encoder strip (transparent strip).
  4. Close the printer cover.
  5. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it.
  6. When the printer turns on, re-insert one cartridge first.
  7. Close printer and check for any errors.
  8. If no error appears, reinsert your other cartridge.
  9. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new cartridge.

I get a service error 5100. What is this and how do i fix it? i changed ink cartridges and then got this error. it seem the cartridges only fit one way because i tried to reverse how i put them in.

Hello !

Service error 5100 is a carriage error. Be certain that the strip is remove from the cartridges. Check the timing strip for contamination (plastic strip about 1/4" in width)
Check for obstructions. Check inside your printer through the gears that you can see under the lid. There should be something obstructing the gears such as dirt. There could be paper caught underneath the rollers. Check VERY thoroughly.

Hope this helps.

I open the case to change the print cartiridge, but the cartiridge holders remain on the left hand side, and will not come to the middle for me to change. and the green on switch keeps blinking while it is...

Please follow the instructions given below:
1. Disconnect the USB cable and the printer power cable.
2. Please disconnect the power supply from the back of the printer.
3. Then remove the cartridges from the printer.
4. Please reconnect the power supply back and turn on the printer.
5. If lights are blinking then printer encoder strip is most likely the problem. Unplug the power from the printer. Open the front cover and move the cartridge carrier to the center. You should see a white ribbon cable, a thin plastic strip and a black belt with teeth.
6. The thin plastic strip is the encoder strip. It rides in a sensor on the back of the cartridge carrier that you will not be able to see. Reach in with the first finger of either hand and carefully strum the strip as if playing a guitar.
7. The strip will need to be lowered slightly and brought towards you slightly. Please be careful not to break the strip or your printer will not function. Once you believe the strip is set correctly, plug the power back and let us know if the lights are still blinking.
8. If you cannot repair the strip, please let us know so that we can assist you further.
Please Note: Fixing the encoder strip is a delicate procedure. During the troubleshooting, if the strip breaks, you will not be able to use the printer.

9. However, if lights are not blinking then try inserting one cartridge at a time and check if you can see any lights blinking. If light blinks with one cartridge then that cartridge is defective.

Printer labels do not advance when print is hit

CAUSE: my guess would be a stripped gear or a lack of prssure on the "pinch wheel" which would cause a loss of traction on the paper feeder.

SOLUTION: 1- change the stripped gear (if it's stripped)
2- add a layer of adhesive tape on the loose pinch wheel (if it's loose)

both solutions require to open case (to access loose wheel or stripped gear). To determin what the probleme is, try to run a print and try to move or pull gently on the lable ribon while in function. Two possible outcomes are that the gear will only "hook" in some areas if it's stripped. If it's loose the paper will only move while pulling on it.

there could be three reasons for this problem
1)the printer cover is not properly closed.
2)either any of the cartridge is faulty.
3)or there is literally the paper jam in the at the back of the printer there is a assess door just remove that door and you can see inside any paper jam.also look for any minute tiny pieces of paper blocking the gears to forward and it shows paper jam.
