My canon pixma MX320 reads document in ADF how do I get rid of this to be able to use my printer?


Hello!

Please check on the ADF section if there is a jammed paper and remove it. ADF stands for Automatic Document Feeder, it is where you put the paper for faxing.

It is also better to check the paper sensor on the ADF section and see if it return back to its normal position. Open the cover of the ADF section, you will find a white plastic that click when your press down and lifted up back when release. This is the paper feed sensor. If this do not return to normal position, you will need to have it replaced by a certified printer technician.

Removing the power cord at the back and leaving it for at least 30 minutes will sometimes do the trick of removing the error on your printer.

I'm using this printer HP deskjet 1050 J410 series. I'm unable to print pages. Whenever i give the print command, it says that the output tray is not open. But the output tray is open. What could be the...


The fix is simple, don't waste time by reinstalling the software. The problem is the HARDWARE located underneath your printer.

Once you have unplugged everything, turn your printer upside-down with the bottom facing up. Locate a black box with 2 screws(as shown in picture attached), you may need a star screwdriver to unscrew it.

Once unscrew the two screws, remove the box slowly and carefully as it may be attached to a lever. once the box is removed completely, disassemble everything inside and locate the longest spring inside.

The problem is the longest spring is too weak to pull the lever attached(as said above).

Solution; either change to a stronger spring or simply make the original spring longer to make it stronger and harder. One way or another just make the spring stronger and harder. Yea

Once done, reassemble everything back, make sure the lever is hooked on before screwing the black box back to the printer. Plug everything back on, try it. It worked for me. Am a proud owner of a cheap but workable HP Deskjet 1050. 22c54afd-4dc4-49d3-85f9-7942497fcbe4.jpg

Dev. home error


Dev. Home error can be fixed by stretching out a solenoid spring on the power cord side of the printer. The solenoid acts as a clutch to stop the spinning developer actuator at the right spot.

The problem is that the spring gets weak over time / the cogs round out over time and the solenoid finger is overcome by the spinning cogs, and resulting in selecting the wrong developer.

Open up the right side (power cord side) of the printer (take off top cover, then take off side cover). Then, find a solenoid (little metal square) that touches the white plastic vertical spur gear. Take the spring off the solenoid. Now, put the spring back on - only this time you will attach one anchor point to the middle of the spring as to pre-stretch the spring for more tension.

Dell 966 all in one


i had this same problem and with some difficulty was able to fix it.(i have moderate experience with taking things apart but i am no expert.) i had to take the printer apart. just pretty much the outside case, nothing really much inside. on the right you will see this black thing connected by a metal rod. the white gear sits on top in that black thing with the band around the gear. on the bottom the black thing is connected by a spring. what happen to me is that black thing is very weak where the spring connects, and all the tension caused it to break. i was actually able to fix that black thing using paperclips. so far its been holding up and i think it should stay. if you want you can email me skradtim@hotmail.com and i might be able to sketch a picture of how it is connected. you may have to shake your printer upside down to recover any pieces. if you have trouble recovering the spring or any metal piece, check on the far right. their is a small speaker and as you probably know the backs are like magnets.

X73 found loose spring


I was having a similar problem. After finding the service manual (4402_X73.pdf) and taking the thing apart, an ink-covered broken spring fell from the inside. I checked around the 'Maintenance Station' and found the other half still hanging. Apparently -because I haven't got a replacement yet to confirm- the spring goes across the bottom of the 'Maintenance Station' to a lever on the other side. If someone can tell me where to post a picture of the thing, I'll gladly do it.

Replacement parts


I think you may have the skills to make it
get some plastic epoxy or , i get them from a auto parts store but you can also find them in home improvement stores, etc

make a small paper cylindrical mold that would engulf the old plastic piece, fill it with epoxy to the top, turn it upside down and place it on the plastic part where the old hook was. once solid you can cut this to size so it will hold the spring.

Ok I fixed this problem. It has to do with Tension on the rod inside the back cover. Open the back cover and remove it. Then emove the black plastic piece by un hooking it on the left side and pull it down then toward you. You will see a rod attached to it that runs to the right. The right end of the rod has a lever that travels in a slot on the right side of the printer. There is a small spring on the rod. Here lies your problem. There has to be enough tension on this spring to activate a switch in the slot on the right side of the printer. Make sure the spring is installed properly. This is a low tension spring so nothing will come flying out when you remoe it and re install it properly. A piece of paper can dislodge this spring. When you get it apart you can quickly see how it should be put back in. E-mail me if you need further help landis1471@comcast.net
