Question about Epson Aculaser C1100 Printer

Reinstalling previously used cartridge

As a studying mechanical engineer, I thougt I would be able to solve our companies printer problems. But I just took out the blue cartridge to check if it was correctly installed. Now I am trying to put it back but I cannot lock it. Is there a mechanism that needs to be resetted when you want to lock a previously unlocked cartridge? Or should I just push it very hard (I am actually afraid it will break)?

Thanks for your help.

Re: Reinstalling previously used cartridge

Make sure you are trying to insert it with the carousel in the correct position. Use the printers driver to rotate the carousel to the correct position. Slide the cart in level and push it well home.

If it will not lock properly, bin the cart and replace it. If you put a cart in that does not seat right you run the risk of spreading toner all over the inside of the machine and the clean up is a bigger job than buying a new cart.

Ensure the carousel is in the right position - the tram lines the cart slides down MUST line up perfectly.

Canon pc 941 copier cartridge issues

Just to clarify, you are stating INK? The Canon PC941 uses an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) Toner Cartridge. Canon toner cartridges for PC941 printer are supplies produced by the same manufacturer that makes given piece of equipment. Toner cartridges produced by Canon are called OEM. Remove the toner from the machine and then use cotton swabs and alcohol to clean around the roller wheels of all drawer areas. Be sure to unplug the equipment before attempting to clean the wheels.

My printer Brother DCP 165C cannot print in black ink.

Your black printhead is blocked.
The printhead is deep inside the printer and has to be taken out by the expert and cleaned with the help of 'steam' and hot water. This is because not using the printer for a long time. or using low grade refill inks.
Please select new cartridge only if you are inserting a new cartridge or fully refilled cartridge. Otherwise use old cartridge option. Brother printer has a mechanical sensor and not the electronic chip in the ink cartridges.
After inserting the old used cartridge if you choose 'new cart' option it will show the "Full" ink. You can still print from the exhausted ink cart after covering the sensor in the middle by a piece of paper in emergency.

Error 1203 Dell 926 All in One Printer. I have cleaned the printer heads with a damp cloth, and switched the printer off and on

Hi there,

Please try reinstalling your ink cartridge. If won't work go to properties on the printer, maintenance, and align the cartridges from there

Printing light and blurry. Changed in cartridges

try reinstalling the driver of the printer. if problem still persists, then you need to check the mechanical parts of the printer. also check if the power lines are good. try restarting the printer and take out the cartridges, if it prompts for an error, then turn off the printer again and install the cartridge. If problem still persists then you need someone to open it and check the mechanical parts or the main board of the printer.

Printer 4270 prints only a partial page and then stops

Thanks for the help. I followed your recommendation of uninstalling the Lexmark program and reinstalling it. Note that I had done this previously and still had the problem. However, following your advice, the third time must have been a charm. The problem has been solved.

Canon pixma ip4500 print head problem 5 lights flashing. Reinstalling print head does not solve problem.

Printhead can be washed under running hot tap to flush all the old ink away. I did mine and it didn't affect performance after drying it overnight in a warm area. Re-fitted it and away it went. Don't worry about getting connector board wet at the back.
