INK CARTRIDGES GO BACK AND FORTH, SOUND REALLY ROUGH

PRINTER KEEPS SAYING "PAPER JAM", THEN THE INK CARTRIDGES SOUND REALLY REALLY ROUGH...

Hi, I have a Lexmark X1150. When I turn on the printer, the cartridge-holder keeps slamming forth and back. From the left side back to the right side. It makes an incredible hard noise and I am not even able to print! Then it goes to the "stand-by"-modus. I have searched my entire printer. I have not found any obstacles.


I've unplugged it from my computer, took out the cartridges and turned it on. The problem still stood, so there could be nothing wrong with my computer/software/USB-cable connection.

 

Sometimes it successfully turns on, but then when I hit "Print", the same problem repeats again.:S

 

The installed software suggests me to look inside the printer, checking the cartridges, connections etc. etc. I have done everything they asked but it still won't work! Could somebody help me out or give me some advice?

Thanks in advance.

"Carrier stall" Error and the Carrier Slams in the Printer ID:ENUS12078 null.gif null.gif null.gif
If the printer carrier is slamming into the side of the printer, please try the following:

  1. Disconnect the power supply from the back of the printer.
  2. Open the front cover of the printer where the cartridges are located.
  3. Look for two black bands that span from left to right (they should have one serrated side and one smooth side). Just above the black bands there is a transparent strip; this strip is called the Encoder strip.
  4. Flick this strip lightly with your finger to make sure that it is running smoothly from left to right. You may need to do this two or three times. CAUTION: Do not pull the strip!
  5. Close the front cover of the printer and reconnect the power supply.
  6. If the problem persists, you may need to contact Lexmark Technical Support.

SOURCE: ink cartridges make a slamming sound from left to right and wont print

The 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.
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.
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 try printing the self test. If it slams to the left again, the strip is not yet set correctly.
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.

How to remove paper jammed in epson workforce 500 printer. i dont see the paper in scanner, back feeder and ink cartridge. what shall i do?


Unplug it and open it up until you see the paper. Don't be rough, but use the rollers to help you roll it back out carefully, If any piece is broken off, fish it out... you can't leave any bits in there.

OK, it sounds like a defective printer that needs to be reset.
Unplug the power to it and replug the power back in to see if it stops doing this.

Read over the following paper jam link from hp.com. It might help you get the paper jam indicator to not light up:

Message says; Paper jam. There is no paper in it. Tried turning off and back on, resetting. Nothing, same message. Any ideas? Thanks, Niki


Hi,
Open the back door and look in the middle of the back cover, there's a black plastic sensor lever that must move up and down freely as the paper passes. That lever gets sticky and needs to be cleaned with alcohol so it can move freely again. You may need to remove the back cover with 2 phillips screws to gain access.
Please rate my response!!

Canon mp830, when turn on error code 6A00. When lift lid, no lights on ink cartridges, ink cartridges do not slide into middle for access. When turn machine on, hear funny noises as heads try to clean...


Hi
Error 6A00
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Canon MP140 paper jam error with no paper jam


try this

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

PAPER JAM THAT REALLY DOESN'T EXIST


make sure the back cover (black panel) is fully closed. If it is, remove the panel and shake gently to make sure nothing has fallen inside.

HP C3180 all in one printer won't realign


Hi,

We've encountered several problem like this. Hope this gives an idea; I understand the cartridge will not moved back to park tray or flash ink tray back and forth because the return pick-up guide were not properly placed into each original position. It will block the ink tray moving back and forth. You can roll back the roller into the original place by removing the back cover if it has, then turn the pick-up roller slowly allowing the roller to turn and backed to its original position. Removed also remains of jammed paper pieces.

Best regards,
Rosener Guyano
