Ice build up in the dispenser chute


That means the ice door is not closing or its broken. When you look down the chute with the door open can you see the ice door closed? It can be a couple things that break in there to cause the door not to close. The only way to figure out what broke is to take it apart! You can put a small towel in the chute from the top to stop the frosting untill your ready to take it apart.
If this helps please rate me.. thank you..

REPLACING HP PRINTER, PRINTHEADS


Follow these steps to replace the printheads in your printer.
  1. Press the Power button (c00636182.gif ) to turn on the printer.
  2. Open the top cover.
  3. Press and hold the Resume button (c01219285.bmp ) until the carriage moves to the left. CAUTION: Be careful not to proceed until the carriage is on the left side of the printer. If the carriage does not move to the left automatically, turn the printer off and back on and then try holding down the Resume button (c01219285.bmp ) again. The printhead can be damaged if the carriage is not all the way to the left for installation.
  4. Lift the printhead latch. Figure 3: Lifting the printhead latchc01290070.gif
  5. Lift the handle of a printhead and use it to pull the printhead out of its slot. Figure 4: Removing the old printheadc01295543.gif
  6. Shake the new printhead at least six times while the printhead is still in its packaging. Figure 5: Shaking the new printheadc01134519.gif
  7. Remove the new printhead from its package, and then remove its orange protective caps. Figure 6: Removing the protective capsc01134520.gif CAUTION: Do not shake the printheads after removing the orange protective caps.
  8. Insert the printhead into its color-coded slot (the label on the printhead must match the label on the printhead latch). Press down firmly on the printhead until it snaps into place. Figure 7: Inserting the new printheadc01290071.gif
  9. Pull the printhead latch all the way forward, and then press down until the latch engages. Figure 8: Closing the printhead latchc01290072.gif
  10. Close the cover. Figure 9: Closing the coverc01290073.gif
  11. The printer should align the printheads automatically in a few minutes, printing an alignment page. If it does not, go to the next section to align manually.
Align the printheadsIf you installed the HP software, use the instructions in the left column below. If you installed a Plug and Play driver or other driver, use the instructions in the right column.

Won't print after replacing cartridges


The following text copied from HP website to tackle this problem. minimtop.gif Follow the instructions below to install the print cartridges. NOTE: If you are installing ink cartridges in the unit for the first time, be sure to use only the print cartridges that came with the unit. The ink in these cartridges is specially formulated to mix with the ink in the print head assembly at first-time setup. s.gif Installing the print cartridges minimtop.gif
  1. Verify that the unit is on.
  2. Open the ink cartridge door. Figure 1: Opening the ink cartridge door c00718797.gif
  3. Squeeze the gray tab below an ink cartridge slot to release the gray latch and then lift the latch. Figure 2: Lifting the latch c00721793.gif 1 - Ink cartridge latch for the black ink cartridge 2 - Ink cartridge latches for the color ink cartridges NOTE: The ink cartridge areas are color-coded for easy reference. From left to right, the ink cartridges are black, yellow, light cyan, cyan, light magenta, and magenta.
  4. Remove the new ink cartridge from its packaging.
  5. Hold the ink cartridge by the handle and then slide the ink cartridge into the empty slot. NOTE: Make sure that the ink cartridge is inserted into the slot that has the same shaped icon and color as the ink cartridge. The copper-colored contacts should be facing the printer as the ink cartridge is inserted. Figure 3: Inserting an ink cartridge c00721795.gif
  6. Press down on the gray latch until it clicks into place. Figure 4: Closing the gray latch c00721796.gif
  7. Repeat steps 3 through 6 for each ink cartridge that needs to be replaced. NOTE: All six cartridges must be installed. The printer will not work if an ink cartridge is missing.
  8. Close the ink cartridge door. Figure 5: Closing the ink cartridge door c00718798.gif

So embarassing, and a nightmare...


Most certainly you did miss something. That stuff can be a real mess as I'm sure you already know. Since you used the dryer and saturated the detergent, its probably in places you can't even see..and expanded where you can't see. The most important thing to do is strip the dryer and totally clean off any residue you see.

You could probably could get away with missing certain places..but anywhere wires and connections are could short out....and any surface that gets hot during use will cook off that detergent and smell.
Strip it and clean it...there's not a whole bunch to a Dryer...but pay attention to detail if you do it yourself.

IDS failure, call HP message comes up


Hope this helps you. This error is caused by either a correct or incorrect detection of air in the manifold. The steps below will clear the error condition, which should solve the problem if it is caused by an incorrect detection of air. If there really is air in the manifold, however, this procedure will not solve the problem and the printer will have to be serviced. Step 1 - Remove all printheads CAUTION: Do not touch the printhead tower. Do not remove the printhead handle. Keep printheads out of the reach of children. Figure 1: HP 14 printhead c00042423.jpg 1 - Handle 2 - Tower
  1. Make sure the unit is plugged in and the power is turned on.
  2. Open the print carriage access door by lifting the handle until the door locks in place. The print carriage moves to the center.
  3. Wait two or three seconds, then unplug the power cord.
  4. Open the printhead latch. See the illustration below. Figure 2: Open the printhead latch c00042424.jpg
  5. Remove each problem printhead by lifting the printhead handle and pulling up. See the illustration below. Figure 3: Remove the printhead c00042425.jpg
Step 2 - Reset the internal error state NOTE: This step must be performed before the printheads are re-installed.
  1. Close the printhead chute.
  2. Close the access door.
  3. Plug the power cord back in.
  4. Turn on the power. The front panel should read No Printhead. Will damage Product. Insert [color name] [icon] printhead now . NOTE: The carriage may make a grinding noise when you turn the power on. This noise is normal.
  5. Open the print carriage access door by lifting the handle until the door locks in place. The print carriage moves to the center.
  6. Wait two or three seconds, then unplug the power cord.
  7. Open the printhead latch.
Before re-inserting the printheads, make sure all the electrical contacts have had at least five minutes to dry. Step 3 - Insert the printheads
  1. Place each printhead in its slot in the printhead carriage. The colored shape on the top of the printhead should match the colored shape on the proper slot on the printhead carriage.
  2. Press down firmly and evenly on both the front and back of the printhead, as shown in the illustration below. Proper seating is essential to making good electrical contact.
Figure 4: Seat the printhead c00042431.jpg Step 4 - Close and check the printer
  1. Close the printhead carriage latch and make sure the loops catch the hooks. See the illustration below. Figure 5: Loops catch hooks c00042432.jpg
  2. Snap the latch into place.
  3. Plug in the power cord.
  4. Close the print carriage access door.
  5. Turn on the power.
  6. If the error clears, a message to align the printheads may appear on the HP Officejet D and HP Officejet 7100. Press Enter to align. If the error persists contact HP. Printhead replacement will not resolve this problem - the printer will have to be serviced.

Printhead problem (black/yellow) on HP L7780


When you removed the paper it's possible your damaged it and that's why the message is not going away. Did you try to put the cartridge back in to make sure it had not come out of position and just remove the power cord for a minute then plugging it back it.

  4. Close the ink cartridge cover.
