Question about HP DeskJet 882c InkJet Printer
I was taking out my color cartridge and accidently left the holder in the up position. As the carriage repositioned itself, it banged against the side and caused a grinding noise. When I placed the holder down the carriage went all the way to the right side and all three lights blink. I have unplugged it and reset it but nothing works. It just grinds and stays to the right. Any help will be great. Thanks!
Hi first of all you need to make sure that everything is in good shape on the carriage and the cartridge holder,
also check if you have any broken plastic pieces in the printer.
you mentioned the reset a well
was it a partial or a semi full reset
another thing which we can try is
1>take out both the cartridges
2> unplug the power cable while the printer is on
3>press the power button for 30 sec to remove the static
3>replug the power
now let the printer lights blink prompting you to put the cartridges
4>put the black cartridge first
some Hp printers work on single cartridges as well.
5>see if you hear the same grinding noise again
6>try cleaning the rollers with a little damp lint free cloth
7>try putting the color cartridge
make sure that the cartridges snap inside properly.
8>see if the problem persists
