Question about Epson STYLUS CX3900 All-In-One InkJet Printer
When I turn my printer on, there's a white lever looking thing that drops down next to the ink cartridges and stops any printing from happening. Every single light starts flashing and I can't do anything except turn it off. Is there a way to fix this?

Ink carts being not recognized and you say its a brand new printer?
Heres what you may want to try.
1. Turn off the printer and disconnect the usb cable from the printer
2. Press and release the ink button once you see a solid green light and solid red ink light
3. Open up the printer cover and check out where is the ink cart holder positioned
4. It should stop in the middle part of the printer, you should see an arrow or a ink out marker (ink icon with a / with it( indicating which ink cart is out or not recognized or expended. (This is a usual process on all the epson stylus photo series I had)
5. Press and release the ink button again, it should stop to the next ink cart which you are having a problem and if it doesnt then your ready to reclamp the ink carts.
Just follow your manual usually theres an on screen instructions how to manually replace or reseat the ink cartridges. If the issue persist, you may want to contact epson, ask for a warranty procedure or what you can do next for this. (Either a bad set of ink cart or a bad print head) Good luck!

This is usually caused by a problem with the chip(s) on the new cartridge.
Check that the chips are clean, and are correctly installed on the cartridge(s) (some can be knocked out of alignment and thus not connect properly).
Also check for any damage to the tiny wires in the printhead where the cartridge sits.. These can also become soiled with fluff, etc... Be VERY careful if you try to clean these as they are very delicate and if broken off you will have a broken printer.
Last thing is of course to check you have the correct cartridges... A common one with the D88 is to have C86 cartridges which are not compatible at all (different' chips!).
Hope that helps.

the waste ink tank beneath the printer is full. it will cost more to fix this than a new printer. take a look at the Epson NX and Workforce series and get yourself a good printer with a year fedex replacement warranty.

You are suggested to Claim the warranty of your Printer if vaild till now. If not then it would need bit of a service. And sir let me inform you that With new printers the cartridges you get are just Sample and have 1/3 ink then new cartridges.

CANON MP780 DOES NOT PRINT
This is what works for me. Try at your own risk. You may need to clean both areas.
Perform a nozzle check using the Canon software under "maintenance." If the nozzle check prints successfully, the problem is most likely not with the printhead. Otherwise, 1) Lift up the lever above the ink cartridges. Take the ink cartridges out. Put them in a plastic zip lock bag. 2) The container in which the ink cartridges sit is removable. The container is inside the moving mechanism. The container is the printhead. Tilt it slightly and pull up. This should come out easily. 3) There are round pads under which the ink cartridges sit in the printhead you removed. The large one is black. On the underside of the printhead are small slits. The one separated from the others is black. Fill a syringe with Windex. a. Run warm water over the printhead until no more ink comes out. b. Fill the areas where the round pads are with Windex. c. Set the printhead on some paper towels. The liquid will soak through and come out the underside along with the ink. Repeat steps a-c until no more ink comes out, but at least 10 times. 4) Let the print head sit and dry for two hours. Put everything back in the printer. Unplug the printer. Plug in the printer. Turn the printer off. Turn the printer on. Do a clean cycle.
CLEAN PURGE MECHANISM:
You will need a light. 1) Unplug the printer and move the printhead all the way to the left. On the far right are two rectangular basins. The smaller one is black. Take your fingernail or a tweezers and lift out the sponge pad (do not drop it). Soak the sponge pad in Windex until it turns white. Plug in the printer. 2) Fill a syringe with Windex. a. Fill the basin with liquid. b. Let it soak for 5 minutes. c. Turn the printer off. d. Turn the printer on. Repeat steps a-d until you see a small hole in the basin. e. Put the syringe over the hole and fill the basin, pushing the liquid into the hole. f. Let it soak for 5 minutes. g. Turn the printer off. h. Turn the printer on. Repeat steps e-h 5 to 10 times. 3) Unplug the printer. Put the sponge pad back in using your fingers (do not drop it). Plug in the printer. Turn the printer off. Turn the printer on. Do a clean cycle.
