SOURCE: hp officejet d145 carriage error & scanner failure

Re carriage error - suggest cleaning the encoder strip. this is the plastic strip running parallel to the drive belt but about 1 inch above it. They frequently become covered with ink spray and so are impossble to read by the carriage position detector.

Beware.

Only use cold water and be very gentle. also make sure you dry the strip thoroughly before switching the machine back on.

Re scanner problem 2 possibilities.
(1) make sure printer power cable is connected directly into wall socket not through an extension cable. This can reduce the voltage getting through to the scanner lamp.

(2) if that don,t work then I suggest you take the scanner apart and clean the reference strip. this is a white bar on the scanner glass which tells the machine what the light level is. This can be a bit tricky so if you've never done it before consult someone who has or get back in touch with me. HP don't want you to do this but it sometimes works.

SOURCE: my hp officejet d145 has

I had a similar problem on my d145. The error code on my printer told me to open the door, latch the carriage, close the door, press enter, which did not correct the problem. Follow the recommendation from klhanson in solution #1 and clean the ink off of the copper contact on the white slide bar located below the right hand side of the carriage where it hits a blockage as it is prevented from sliding all the way back to the right side of the slide bar. Unplug the power and gently move the carriage to the left hand side of the slide bar out of the way. If the white slide bar will not retract back out of the way of the carriage to let the carriage slide back all the way to the right side, look for a small black latch located below the right side of the white slide bar. The black latch is attached to a small metal strip that also gets gummed up with ink and if it can't move back and forth, the white slide bar won't retract and move out of the way of the carriage. Use a small amount of alcohol on a Q-Tip and clean the metal strip attached to the black latch. Try to gently move the black latch back and forth with a small screw driver to free it up as you clean the metal strip. Plug the printer back in and hopefully the black latch will move back and down and let the white slide bar retract to the back and out of the way when the carriage starts to move. This process worked well for me, and it also eliminated the terrible noise. Also make sure your slide bar is vey clean. I hope this information is helpful.

SOURCE: gear noise in Dell 3100cn printer

Hello mugs3,

You may have guessed this, but you may have some stripped gears. I would suggest that if you have a background in mechanical systems that you open up the unit and look for signs of gear damage (stripped and or worn gears). The toner cylinder may have been put in incorrectly, or you may have had some gears slipping which eventually lead to this problem. In any case it sounds like you will need to replace the toner carriage, and its associative mechanisms. In any event you have a lot of work ahead on this system. If you take your time and inspect the problem you will see that it's not hard but it will take time to look at and troubleshoot the problem and what may have lead up to the problem, my bet is that the toner was put in wrong and the system was activated and the person may have realized the mistake and put the cylinder in correctly but by that time the damage was done.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Please follow these step by step instructions to remove the carriage jam error:


1) With the Printer power on open the door so that print heads move to the center.
2) Unplug the printer, kindly make sure to unplug don't turn it off.
3) Open the back door.
4) Look inside the back left side for a small black gear (About the size of a quarter)
5) Spin the gear with a screw driver clockwise. Spin it and watch the inside of the printer where the print heads park. You should see a tray move out that has four rubber blue rectangles on it on the right side of the unit (this is where the print heads park when the unit is not printing).
6) Keep spinning the gear until the plate moves all the way forward.
7) Grab the plate and try moving it forward more.
8) Put the back on and close the top.
9) Turn the unit back on.
10) Open the top again
11) Unplug the unit again. (Don't turn off, just unplug!)
12) Grab the tray, from step 5, and slide it all the way forward and all the way back multiple times.
13) Make sure that the print heads slide left to right smoothly
14) Remove ink cart's and clean the contacts with bottled water and a q-tip. LET DRY BEFORE REINSTALLING!!!
15) Remove print heads and clean contacts with bottled water and q-tip. LET DRY BEFORE REINSTALLING!!!
16) Clean the inside of the printer with a soft dry cloth, use a slightly damp, with bottled water, lint free cloth (Glasses cleaning cloth works well) and wipe off the rollers in the front and back of the unit. See HP's cruddy support site for details on this step.
17) Hold down #7 (reprimes the printheads with ink) and plug in the unit

Pump motor stalls in my HP printer


When an inkjet printer is making "awful noises" it means that there is either a paper jam or the carriage can't move properly. Remove all paper and check for a paper jam - if this is not the problem, turn off the printer and see if you can move the print cartridge carrier by hand. If it is hard to move, clean the shiny carriage rod with a cloth and put just a drop of light oil on it. Move the carriage back and forth and clean it again - repeat until it moves easily and add a final drop of oil to the rod.

Empty carriage stuck in my HP 7500A printer


Hello,Lester Makang
Your carriage got stuck in service station,is there any noise coming from the right side of printer then there will be broken gear.
Power on your printer,after you got carriage jam error open cartridge access door and wait 5 second when you see that gears trying to move,use your hand to pull your carriage to left side.Don't use much force.If your carriage got free then install your print head and cartridges.If this will happen again then take it to service center they will change the service station or broken gear but the cost goes much high.

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)

Printer carriage not working properly in 5510 'all-in-one'


Does your carriage just move to the right side and get stuck? That's what mine does. I just fiddle with it and wiggle stuff until it's starts working and it'll work until I shut it down but when I turn it back on it starts all over again.
