Print head parked at left, error code 3527


This problem has plagued me for a very long time. The issue is that the printer head is "glued" in the resting position under the guard of the printer, so you can't remove the ink cartridges to clean it. Solution is to (I know this sounds stupid, but it works) turn the printer on the side where the printer cartridges are (if they are stuck on the left side, turn the printer on its side so the cartridges are on the bottom). Turn the printer on, and the cartridges magically start moving! I guess there are some sensors that get tricked out when you tip the printer on its side. If the cartridges are still stuck, click the "ok" button, and before it gets a chance to see if you actually fixed the problem, turn the printer off using the power button. It takes a long time, but you should see the ink trap lower (release the ink cartridges) and the ink cartridges start moving to prepare for shutdown! Grab the cartridges when they move out of their hiding place and don't let them go back until you clean the print head so it doesn't get stuck again. Remove the ink cartridges, then push the grey tab to release the print head. Wipe the bottom of the print head clean with rubbing alcohol (it will have a lot of gooey - sticky ink stuck on the bottom). I used nail polish remover since I didn't have rubbing alcohol available. You can also wipe down the ink pad which is where the ink cartridges were previously jammed to clean up more of the mess and prevent this sort of thing happening again too soon. Good luck!

I just changed my ink cartridge on my F4280 hp printer, now my printing is blurry


Hello.
Try running the print head alignment feature through the computer. (Click Start - Control Panel - Printers and Faxes - RIGHT CLICK HPF4280 - select printing preferences - select maintenance - select cartridge alignment and follow the on screen instructions) This can also be caused by solid pieces of ink stuck inside the print head disrupting the flow. if it a genuine HP cartridge contact HP for a replacement. The link below shows how to clear blockages also http://www.fixya.com/support/r3986425-unblock_print_heads
I hope this helps Regards GM

How to change ink in HP Deskjet F480 printer???


  • Check the ink levels by opening the HP Solution Center. Click on "Settings." Click on "Toolbox." Click on "Services." Click on "Service this device." Click on "Estimated Ink Levels." A graphic will appear showing the estimated ink level in each cartridge.
  • 2 Verify that the unit is on. Open the print cartridge door allowing the print carriage to move to the far right side of the unit. Once the print carriage has stopped, lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it. Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot. To replace the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left. To replace the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right. Place the cartridge in a plastic bag as it may still contain some residual ink and may leak.
  • 3 Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging. Remove the plastic tape by using the pull tab, being careful to not touch the copper-colored contacts or the ink nozzles under tape.
  • 4 Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Gently push the upper part of the print cartridge until it clicks into place. The tri-color print cartridge fits into the left slot. The black or photo print cartridge fits into the right slot.
  • 5 Close the print cartridge door. If the print cartridge alignment sheet prints, load it on the left front corner of the scanner glass with the top of the page to the left. Verify that there is plain paper loaded in the input tray, and then press the "Scan" button to align the printer.

    Dell 922 printer alignment problem-


    try this...

    Aligning Ink Cartridges Your printer automatically aligns the ink cartridges when they are installed or replaced. To verify your ink cartridges are aligned, you can print an alignment page. After you close the printer unit, press the Menu button. The alignment page begins printing. During printing, the operator panel display reads Alignment Page Printing. When complete, the message reads Auto Alignment Complete. Your ink cartridges are now aligned for optimal print quality.
    You may also need to align ink cartridges when characters are not properly formed or are not aligned at the left margin, or when vertical or straight lines appear wavy.
    To align the ink cartridges:
    1. Load plain paper. For more information, see Loading Paper.

    2. Click Start® Programs or All Programs® Dell Printers® Dell Photo AIO Printer 922® Dell Printer Solution Center.

    Clear the carrier jam


    There could be 4 possibilities.

    1. Ink cartridges lids are open which is not allowing cartridges to move freely.
    2. Ink cartridges carriage will not move from its original position(left) when front cover is opened
    3. Encoder strip is Dirty.
    4. Encoder strip is Out of position.

    Solution:
    1. Open the front cover and check if ink cartridges lids are properly snapped in.

    2. Turn the printer off and pull out the power cable from power socket, open the front cover and manually center the ink cartridges carriage.
    Clean the metallic rod inside the printer using WD40 or Kleenex from Left corner to right corner properly.

    3. Cleaning the encoder strip:
    a. printer should be off and disconnected from power.
    b. open the front cover.
    c. Using a dry, lint free cloth, pinch the encoder strip on the right-hand side of the cartridge carriage and pull your fingers across it toward the right-hand side of the printer and you can move the cartridges carriage to clean the strip completely.
    d. Note: The encoder strip is a narrow band of clear plastic and can be difficult to see without direct lighting running parallel to metallic rod.
    e. Close the printer and try again to print.

    4. Repositioning the Encoder strip.
    a. Remove the power cord from the printer.
    b. Open the front cover.
    c. Gently slide the ink cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer.
    d. Gently move the top part of the printer belt to the right.
    e. Using an index finger, gently push encoder strip down and then back up, to get it back into the slot located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier.
    f. Gently press the strip first to the rear, and then forward, to ensure that it is seated correctly.
    g. Manually move the ink cartridge carrier to the left, then to the right, to check the positioning of the encoder strip.
    h. Once the encoder strip has been re-seated, close the scanner lid.
    i. Re-connect the power cord to the printer and try again to print.

    CHANGING INK CARTRIDGES


    For all printers I'm familiar with, it should be on. Some won't even move the carrier (the sliding thing the ink carts go in) over to where you can get to it if you open the cover with the power off. And you'll want to print an alignment page after replacing a cart too or your printout may be blurry (most printers will prompt you to do that after you close the lid).

    Print cartridge cradle is stuck ican't find where it is jammed


    This might help . . . Mine finished printing one doc & then made a terrible noise & sent a message to my screen that "print cartridge cradle is stuck." When i opened door, i could see it was stuck off to the left side so left cartridge was obscured. I could not get it to budge, although i kept turning it off, gently pushing & turning it back on. Finally, i got my hand inside & determined that the little door to the left-side cartridge had popped open & was causing it to remain stuck. After some struggles (turn off printer first!) i was able to maneuver it around & close it tight. Now, all is well . . .
