Be sure to leave the printer ON if you will change the Ink cartridge. If the printer is OFF the printer head will not move.

There is a small lock in the chasis of the head. Move the head to right you can see a plastic on the head moving path. push it to backwards. Now you can move the head to left.

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.

DCP 7030 printer says toner life end, replace toner cartridge. After replacing the toner printer still gives the same message and will not print.


What worked for me was to follow the instructions in this video: Resetting lever on cartridge There is a lever on the left hand side of the toner cartridge (left hand side - with you holding the cartridge as if you were going to insert it into the printer). It seems that lever has to be at the '12 o'clock' position to tell the printer that you have a new cartridge. The video showed the person removing 3 screws and then ensuring the lever was at the '12 o'clock' position. On my cartridge I had to do some wiggling to get the lever to move as it's gear assembly seemed to want it to only move down to the '4 o'clock position' and then stay there. Eventually I got it moved to 12 o'clock - and when I stuck the toner back into the printer - the 'toner end of life' message went away. I then removed the toner cartridge - as I wanted to try another cartridge that I had also reset the lever on. I found that lever had again moved to the 3 or 4 o'clock position - after printing just one test page so I am guessing it being at the 12 o'clock position tells the printer you have a new cartridge - and then it moves over to the regular position at 3 or 4 o'clock..

Changing Dell 3000cn printer cartridge


The instructions always come with the new cartridges and also are printed on the new cartridges. You move the right hand (colored) side up to unlock. Carefully pull the cartridge up and out (you can screw up the gears if you don't put the cartridges in and out straight. Make sure you've followed the instructions that come with the new toner cartridge (removing tape, shaking), put it in the same way and move the right hand side down to lock.

Will not print text only images


OK - here is all the help I can give to someone who won't respond to questions.

Are you confident the new cartridge is full and in-date? Can you confirm that the old cartridge was not removed until immediately before the new cartridge was installed. Did you remove the yellow tape from the new cartridge before you installed it? Was the black cartridge change properly completed such that an ink charging cycle occurred.

If you have already done lots of head cleans with no result, and you're sure you have a good ink cartridge properly installed, then you can try soaking the print heads for 24 hours (or more), as follows. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then try a head clean again. If still nothing, report back

Is there a way of manually cleaning a printhead?


Are you confident you have a good Cyan cartridge from which the ink is flowing properly. For example, are you sure you removed the yellow tape from the cartridge before you installed it? Is it low on ink? Even though the Status Monitor says the cartridge has plenty of ink, it may not. This is because the Status Monitor only estimates how much an ink cartridge contains based on how much printing & head cleaning has been carried out since new. There are a number of reasons for it to get it badly wrong, or it may simply be faulty (e.g. an out-of-date cartridge that has dried-up). If in doubt change it for a new one.

Apart from a dud cartridge, air trapped in the nozzles can inhibit ink flowing. This is usually caused by unsatisfactory cartridge replacement e.g. taking out the old cartridge too long before installing the new. Tackle this with head cleaning cycles. But, do not carry out more than 2 or 3 cleaning cycles in a row; once ink starts to flow, as shown by a nozzle check print, leave it to stand for 24 hours before trying 2 or 3 cycles again. Patience is the key.

If these steps produce no improvement, then you can try the following head-soak process. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves, pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then try a head clean or two again. If still nothing, report back.

INK CATRIDGE CARRIER


Turn the printer on and as soon as the print head moves, pull out the power cord, or switch the printer off at the mains. You should now be able to move the print head (gently) by hand over to the left side.

Seem unable to get my ink cartridge holder in middle position to insert new cartridge. have tried 2 TR27 copy cartridges from ABITECH Nottingham but both made the error light flash ! Printer id EPSON...


I cannot remember if the Status Monitor (SM) of the 810 has a "change cartridge" facility, but it's easy to check. Right click the printer icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen and select printer settings. Then click the maintenance tab - is "change cartridge" one of the options? If so, use it. If it isn't you can download the SSC utility from

http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml

and use this to move the cartridge to the cartridge change position - don't forget to use it to do an ink charge cycle after you have replaced the cartridge.

There is also the "generic" approach. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head starts to move, pull the power lead out of the printer, or turn it off at the mains. The print head should now be free to move (gently!) by hand to the cartridge change position. The snag here is there is no inherent means of running an ink charge cycle - do a couple of head clean cycles instead.
