Clean a KX-P7100 printer


The paper jam in theKX-P7100 is usually due to the paper tray.

If you pull the paper tray out you'll notice a black piece of plastic (located at the most front) with a cork like material in the middle. Try pushing down on this piece of plastic a few times. If it does not pop up immediately the grease that Panasonic used has become "sticky". The piece of plastic is removed by turning the tray upside down and pushing on the small plastic tabs that hold the black piece of plastic in. Be careful to not loose the spring that is located under the black piece of plastic or break the plastic tabs that hold it in place. Once you get the black piece of plastic out, clean it with que tips and clean the area it slides up and down in. Make sure to remove all the "sticky" grease. Once you get it clean, don't forget to stretch the spring to one more inch. the spring quality is awful at tensile strength. Then place the spring back in its place and push the black piece of plastic back in its place. You can add some light oil to the black plastic to make it slide better. After it is reassembled try pushing down on the black piece of plastic a few times. It should spring up almost immediately. This should take care of the jams that you are experiencing.

In addition, you may have to stretch the 2 big springs under the metal plate in the paper tray to one more inch. To access them, you'll have to unscrew the 3 philips screws under the tray (take a picture before :-)), take away the 2 blue pieces and take out the metal plate.

Now I'm able to print from the media tray without any problem :-).

Hope this helps!

There is a loose ribbed black/brown thin band inside the printer where the cartridges are changed-where does it belong please


Sounds like the carriage belt, it goes around a motor pulley on the far right side, and around a spring loaded idler pulley on the far left. It should also be connected to the carriage assembly to move the carriage back and forth.

I keep getting a carriage stall message and the carriage slams hard to the left each time. Can I solve this problem myself?


If you can re-install the encoder strip. The encoder strip is a clear plastic strip with black lines on it that the carriage uses for position. It has a spring on the left and a hook on the right and runs thru a sensor at the back of the carriage unit. If it is missing or dirty you won't be able to print.

Long 20 inch plastic was taken out of a HP 1220 C Printer.


This plastic strip is probably the so called "encoder strip", it has many fine black lines that the carriage sensor counts to find out where the carriage is located on the paper.

This encoder strip is attached directly to the printer's frame on the right, and to a leaf spring on the left side. It also runs through a slot on the back side of the carriage.

It can be treaded back and reattached if you're nimble-fingered, but in many cases it's broken and needs to be replaced. As far as I remember HP doesn't sell these parts separately (correct me if I'm wrong!) so if it's broken the printer most probably has to be turned in for service.

But if the encoder strip is intact, there's no right or left side - or up/down - of it, so it can be attached any way you want - as long as you get it back properly. Usually it's best to first hook it up on the leaf spring, then attach it on to the small hook on the right side. Being able to slide the carriage back and forth eases the operation. You can get it back without disassembling the printer; it's fiddly but it's possible.

Good luck! :)

Lights flashing no paper jam



I am had problem with LEX Z33. Won't print although file is getting through to the printer. (You can check this by going to settings/printer/right click on OPEN). You have 2 lights on top of printer. Left is paper feed light right one is printer on/off light.

How I solved problem was to take top plastic cover off the printer. Check small roller at back of machine and main rollers do not have any obstruction.

I found that the printer carriage was sticking (may be wear or congealed ink) . I removed a small plastic component from front of machine just below the print carriage when it is in docking position.
This component about 2 inches long attached to machine by a small spring. It can be removed by sliding carriage to left and easing lower trolley mechanism. My printer is working fine now.
However, I will be taking time off to clean all ink deposits before reinserting plastic part.

Epson C 44 ink jet printer loose white L shape plastic part.


ONE OF THE ARTICLES IN, www.fixya.com/support/t262916-printer_carriage ,GAVE US SOME GOOD INFORMATION. IT REFERS TO A PAGE IN A PARTS MANUAL THAT WAS IN PDF FORM, WHICH WE HAD TROUBLE DOWN LOADING. WITH THE DOWN LOADING OF AN UP DATED ADOBE, WE MANAGED TO VIEW IT. THE ASSEMBLY THAT THE WHITE PLASTIC L SHAPED PIECE WAS MOUNTED TO WAS HANGING DOWN, AND HAD COME LOOSE. THE PLASTIC L PART GOES ON ONE OF THE SHAFTS ON THE LITTLE WHITE PLASTIC CARRIER, THAT MOUNTS INTO THE SLOTS. NOTE THEIR IS A SMALL SPRING THAT IS ON ONE SIDE AND IT ATTACHS TO ONE OF THE SHAFTS ON THAT SIDE OF THE WHITE PLASTIC CARRIER. PUT IT BACK TO GETHER IF THE PARTS AREN'T BROKEN AND THE PRINTER SHOULD WORK. I FEEL IT WAS THE SPRING COMING OFF OF THAT SHAFT THAT ALLOWED IT TO COME LOOSE, AND SHUT THINGS DOWN. GOOD LUCK

Loose Parts??


Sounds like the Encoder Strip, but without the Brand Printer and model number, I cant be 100% sure.
If it is the encoder strip, this is what the printer uses to tell where the carrriage is located at. Without it, the printer won't work.
You can try to repair but it will take a little time. 1st make sure that the encoder strip isn't torn at either ends where the spring goes in.
The encoder strip goes from 1 end to the other end, and it also goes through a small opening in the back of the carriage unit.
If you have a make and model, I could be a little more specific.

Good luck.
