Question about Lionel 6457 Lionel Lines Illuminated Caboose Post War

1 Answer

The lights inside the caboose are not working and I have checked the under carriage contact roller and wire and all seem to be in contact. What else should I check?

It has "BUILT 9-47" on the brown color housing with black smokestack. It has "C-40-1" printed on the side.

I really am confused by your question, the starwheel you talk about is most likly on the end of the platen (rubber Roller) the star that you talk about is held in a set position by deten roller or wire that falls between the teeth. Usually a lever to release that roller so you can align the paper properly. May the roller or detent is missing, also make sure when you turn the "star" the rubber platen will move also. On the end of the knob there is usually a pin or knob you push in or pull out to allow you to turn the platen freely with no detent.

Once I turn my printer psc 2410 photosmart on it makes an annoying sound like if something is stucked and freezes staying on the clock sand mode . What should i do?


During printing, the HP product makes unusual or loud noises. You might describe the noise as grinding, squeaking, or screeching.
    Step one: Clean the rollers in the back of the product
    1. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product.
    2. On the back of the product, find the rear door.
    3. Squeeze the tab or tabs on the rear door, and then pull the rear door toward you to remove it.
    4. Open the rear door on newer Photosmart, Officejet, or PSC productsInside the back of the product, rotate the paper rollers with your fingers to make sure that they can turn freely.
    5. Rotate the rollers located on the inside of the rear door to make sure that they can turn freely.
    6. Remove any torn pieces or scraps of paper that you can see.
    7. Dampen a clean, lint-free cloth or swab with distilled water, and then wipe the paper rollers inside the product and on the inside of the rear door clean. Rotate the paper rollers with your fingers to clean all the way around them.
    8. Reattach the rear door. Make sure that it snaps into place.
    Step two: Clean the rollers in the front of the product
    1. Lift the cartridge access door to access the front paper rollers in the product.
      NOTE: On some Officejet models, you might need to close the document catcher. Then, look in through the front of the product to access the front paper rollers.
    2. Inside the front of the product, rotate the paper rollers with your fingers to make sure that they can turn freely.
    3. Remove any torn pieces or scraps of paper that you can see.
    4. Dampen a clean, lint-free cloth or swab with distilled water, and then wipe the paper rollers clean. Rotate the paper rollers with your fingers to clean all the way around them.
    Step three: Clean the small rollers Dampen a clean, lint-free cloth or swab with distilled water, and then wipe the small rollers, also called the pinch rollers, clean. The pinch rollers are the small metal rollers directly above the paper rollers. Rotate the pinch rollers with your fingers to clean all the way around them.
    NOTE: Do not clean the carriage rod. Removing or damaging the lubrication on the carriage rod can cause the product to make more noise. Figure 9: Carriage rodc02203348.jpg Step four: Clean the cartridges
    1. Connect the power cord to the back of the product, and then press the Power button (c01602202.gif ) to turn on the product.

    6. Dampen a clean, lint-free cloth or swab with distilled water, and then wipe any ink or debris from the copper-colored electrical contacts on the cartridge.
      CAUTION: Do not touch the ink nozzles or the electrical contacts with your fingers. This can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections. Figure 13: Clean the copper-colored electrical contactsc00617184.gif 1 - Electrical contacts 2 - Ink nozzles Figure 14: Do not touch the copper-colored electrical contacts or the ink nozzles Place the cartridges on a clean sheet of paper, with the nozzles facing up.
    Step five: Clean the electrical contacts inside the product
    1. Dampen a clean, lint-free cloth or swab with distilled water, and then wipe any ink or debris from the electrical contacts inside the carriage
    2. Let the cartridges and carriage sit for 10 minutes to allow them to dry, or use a clean, dry swab to dry the contacts.
    3. Slide each cartridge into its slot at a slight upward angle, and then press firmly until you hear the cartridge click into place.
      • Install the tri-color cartridge in the slot on the left.
      • Install the black cartridge in the slot on the right.
      I hope this helps you!

How do I re-set after a paper jam hp psc 1200?


Verify that the print cartridge door is closed.
The print carriage may be jammed, follow these steps to correct the problem:
1.
Open the print cartridge access door. If the print carriage can move, it should move to center. If the print carriage stays all the way left, unplug the power cord and then plug it back in. This will reset the unit and may allow the print carriage to move from the left.
2.
Disconnect the power cord from the all-in-one.
3.
Remove both print cartridges.
4.
Move the print carriage left and right slightly to verify that the print carriage will move freely. If the print carriage will not move freely, check for obstructions.
5.
Close the print cartridge access door.
6.
Plug the power cord back in.
7.
After the all-in-one initializes, the print cartridge light will flash. Open the access door and install the print cartridges.
8.
Close the print cartridge access door. If the problem returns, remove the print cartridges and wipe the electrical contacts before reinstalling them.
*
Try to make a copy. If the all-in-one pulls in paper but cannot make a copy, there may be a problem with the scanner mechanism. Contact HP for assistance.

If that doesn't work, maybe try this too:


Clearing paper jams
Paper jams can occur for a variety of reasons but are usually paper related. Follow the steps below to clear the paper jam:

1.
Turn off the all-in-one and unplug the power cord. With the power off, the paper feed rollers will turn.
2.
Open the rear access door of the all-in-one by pressing in on the left side of the access door and then pulling it toward you.
NOTE: All paper jams must be removed by pulling the paper out the back of the all-in-one using the rear access door. Pulling the paper out the front of the all-in-one rotates the paper feed rollers in the wrong direction and can lead to additional problems.

Inspect the pressure rollers on the rear access door and verify that they are clean and turn freely. Clean the rollers if needed with a soft towel lightly moistened with water. If the rollers do not turn freely, replace the rear access door.
*
If under warranty, contact HP to obtain a replacement part.
*
Click How to buy on this page to order replacement parts.
3.
From the rear access door opening, gently pull the jammed paper free.
4.
Remove the remaining paper from the paper supply tray. Discard any paper that is damaged or crumpled and then re-stack and reload the paper into the paper supply tray.
Do not continue to push the paper in after some resistance is felt. If the paper is pushed in too far, more than one page will feed into the all-in-one at a time.
5.
Reattach the rear access door by inserting the two pins on the right of the door into the holes for them and then pressing in gently but firmly on the left side.

6.
Reconnect the power cord to the unit and turn the unit on. Source(s): http://www.castleink.com

My canon i850 is blinking 3 orange lights at me and refusing to print. any ideas. tried turning on and off. removing print driver and re-installing thanks!


3 blinks is a line feed error, something stopping the platen roller from turning, look inside where the paper goes and see if something fell in like an ink pen, paper clip, just something that doesn't belong. The platen roller is the gray roller behind the carriage and sometimes you can see thru under the white plastic guides something jammed.

Message 5100 check printer - what's the problem?


A 5100 error is a carriage jam error.that means some thing is jammed in the printer at some point,you need to search for piece of paper or item jammed in the assembly.the 5100 is the carriage error and can be caused by 4 different sensors. First off the "Timing Strip" that passes through the back of the Carriage Assembly can be contaminated with ink spots and this needs to be cleaned. Open the cover and use your flashlight to examine the timing strip as much as you can see. You really don't have much access to this strip unless you remove the covers,..and doing that is considerable work. The other items that can cause this error are the sensor inside the carriage unit, the drive motor for the carriage arm, and of course the main logic card. However, 99.6% of the time it is the Timing strip which is easily contaminated with splattered ink.
if the problem still persist then you can use a power blower to blow the carriage assembly and the rollers

Service error 5100?


This error means that there is something obstructing the printing process. Check inside your printer through the gears that you can see under the lid. There should be something obstructing the gears such as dirt or in my case popcorn. There was even some paper caught underneath the rollers that I had to jiggle around to even see. Check VERY thoroughly.

5100 is a carriage error, check the timing strip for contamination(plastic strip about 1/4" in width)
The unit is not homing, check for obstructions.
1. clean **** strip film
2. clean **** strip film sensor (back of head carriage)(use contact cleaner)
Also, try this reset procedure:

1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not,
press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal..
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

PAPER JAM


SUGGESTION #1 The print carriage might be jammed. Follow these steps to correct the problem:
  1. With the power on, lift the print cartridge access door. The print carriage should move to the access area located on the right. If the print carriage stays all the way left, reset the unit by unplugging the then plugging in the power cord. If the carriage still does not move to the right, continue with the steps below.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the all-in-one.
  3. Remove both print cartridges.
  4. Push the print carriage slightly to the left and then to the right to verify that the print carriage is not jammed. If the print carriage will not move, check for obstructions under and around the carriage.
  5. Close the print cartridge access door.
  6. Plug in the power cord.
  7. When the " Insert Print Cartridges " message displays, open the print cartridge access door and insert the print cartridges. Verify that both cartridges are seated correctly and lock into position.
SEGGUSTION #2 cleaning rollers Over time dust and paper fibers will accumulate on the paper feed rollers. This can cause paper feed problems. Follow the steps below to clean the rollers: Figure 3: Paper feed rollers c00212278.jpg
  1. Turn off the all-in-one and unplug the power cord.
  2. Remove the rear access door (as describe above in this document).
  3. Clean each roller using a clean lint-free cloth lightly moistened with water (distilled water preferred). Rotate the rollers to clean the entire surface.
  4. Verify that the paper feed rollers on the rear access door are clean and rotate easily.
  5. Re-seat the rear access door.
  6. Plug in the power cord and turn on the all-in-one.
If these suggestions don't fix the problem feel free to write back to me. Try to be a little more specific i.e does paper feed properly, error message shows with paper/without paper or both, do any of the lights flash when this happens, have you tried diiferent paper sizes ot types. Have you taken it apart to check for any obstructions?
