The print cartridge cradle cannot move - hp 5652 after slight service


This error means that some mechanical parts of your printer is in trouble. This could be some of the causes:

1. The print head is stuck somewhere or is unable to move because of some blockage in the printer's bay.
2. If you are using a Continuous Ink System, then the tubes might have blocked the print heads from moving.

To resolve, turn OFF your printer. Remove such blockage then turn the printer back ON.

JR

I get the alert "no printer cartridge" when there is a cartridge


Hi,
  1. Open the printer top access door. The printer carriage will move to the center.
  2. Remove the USB cable from the back of the printer.
Remove the print cartridges from the printer.
  • Unplug the power cord. (Do not press the Power button to turn off the printer.)
  • Verify that the correct cartridge is being used for the printer. Cartridge reference can be found in the User Guide.
  • Verify that the protective plastic tape has been removed from the print cartridge
  • Locate the copper circuit strip on the back of the cartridge.
  • Clean the copper circuit strip with a dry foam-rubber swab or a lint-free cloth.
  • Reconnect the power cord to the printer.
  • Turn on the printer if it does not turn on automatically.
  • Insert the print cartridge into the cradle at a slight upward angle until a resistance is fallen. Firmly push the print cartridge into the cradle. A snapping sound will be heard when the print cartridge is correctly positioned. The print cartridge fits securely in its cradle.
  • Close the top access door. The printer carriage should move to the left.
  • If the printer light is on steady, perform a self test report as follows:
    1. Press and hold the Power button, and then open and close the top cover four times.
    2. Release the Power button.
  • If the printer light continues to blink, replace the print cartridge or cartridges one at a time
  • Print cartridge recognition error messages are displayed if the printer is unable to communicate with the cartridge(s). A faulty cartridge or dirty contacts on the cartridge may cause this.

    Even thought there is NO paper jam, I still get an error message:


    Please try this solution :

    1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
    2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
    3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
    4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
    5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

    If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
    If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
    6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
    7. Turn the printer off.
    8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
    9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

    Print cartridge cradle is stuck ican't find where it is jammed


    This might help . . . Mine finished printing one doc & then made a terrible noise & sent a message to my screen that "print cartridge cradle is stuck." When i opened door, i could see it was stuck off to the left side so left cartridge was obscured. I could not get it to budge, although i kept turning it off, gently pushing & turning it back on. Finally, i got my hand inside & determined that the little door to the left-side cartridge had popped open & was causing it to remain stuck. After some struggles (turn off printer first!) i was able to maneuver it around & close it tight. Now, all is well . . .
