For the first problem you need to check the control panel board connector and make sure it making proper contact. Had a similar problem with my printer and after trouble shooting
i realized that the connector ws not make full contact. after soldering it, it worked properly.

Hi, when I power up my MP630, there is a loud clacking sound and then I get an error code of 5100 of 5C20. There is no paper jamed - can you help?


Error Code 5100
It can have a lot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from factory. If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100 (or E-2-2 on the LCD display) Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corresponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on)

Error 5200:


Start with printer powered off
1. Open cover of printer and verify that the ink cartridge carriage is not in the center of the printer. Leave cover open.
2. Unplug the electrical cord from the printer and wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug electrical cord back in, when ink cartridge carriage moves to the center of the printer quickly unplug the electrical cord again. This should leave the ink cartridge carriage in the center of the printer so you can get to it.
4. Lift up the gray arm that surrounds the ink cartridges.
5. Remove the entire ink cartridge holder (not just the ink cartridges). It will lift out easily as a unit. Lower the gray arm that you lifted to remove the cartridge holder.
6. Close printer cover. Plug electricity back in.
7. There should be a message about checking the ink cartridge on the display (I can't remember exactly what it said but it was something like that).
8. Open printer, lift the gray arm that surrounds the ink cartridge area and reinsert the ink cartridge holder (with the ink cartridges in it). Lower the gray arm.
9. Close printer cover.
10. The display should appear normal now, and you should be able to print again.

Wait 15 seconds.
The print-head will slide to an accessible position.
Press down on the ink-cartridge, to "unlock" it from its holder.
Gently slide it out.
Gently slide in the replacement ink-cartridge.
Press up-and-in on the ink-cartridge, to "lock" it into its holder.

Where is the toner cartridge and how do I find it?


Plug the Lexmark 2600 into an electrical outlet and press the power button. Allow the unit to power up. The power button will turn green when ready.


Turn on the Printer and Open the top cover of the Lexmark 2600 by lifting the cover upward. you will find all cartridges down there.



Now you see how to replace them


Remove the black ink cartridge from it's packaging. Remove the tape from the black ink cartridge first and place the cartridge into the left ink cartridge holder. Press the cartridge down into until you hear it lock into place. Close the ink cartridge holder lid by pressing it down firmly. This secures the ink cartridge in place.


Remove the colored ink cartridge from the packaging and remove the tape from the cartridge. Place the cartridge into the right cartridge holder and press down until it clicks into place. Push down the cartridge holder lid.


Close the lid of the Lexmark 2600 and allow the print cartridges to align. The power light will be blinking while the cartridges are being aligned; once the power light turns solid, the printer is ready for use.

Have a pixma 145 . alarm icon orange and printer not doing anyhting . how do i remove cartridges?


Follow these steps:
step 1. Make sure your Canon printer is turned on.
Step 2. Lift up on the front edge of the scanning unit. It will swing up and back. Make sure the scanning unit support, a plastic bar, swings down and into the obvious notch in the base of the unit. This will hold the scanning unit open while you work.
Step 3. Apply gentle downward pressure on the leading edge of the ink cartridge you intend to replace until you can slide it carefully toward you, out of the cartridge holder. Take care not to touch anything inside the printer--you may damage sensitive parts--and handle the spent cartridge carefully to keep from getting ink on yourself.
Step 4. Remove a new ink cartridge from its plastic packaging and gently pull the thin protruding slip of protective tape away from its terminals and nozzles. Make sure not to touch any terminals or nozzles protected by the tape.
Step 5. Slide the new ink cartridge into place. Black ink usually goes into the left-hand cartridge holder, and colored ink will typically go into the right-hand cartridge holder. Lift the leading edge of the cartridge gently until you hear it snap into place.
Step 6. Lift the scanning unit enough to remove the scanning unit support from its notch, then fold the support flat against the scanning unit again. Lower the scanning unit back into place.
Good luck

The printer doesn't recognize the new original HP color cartridge


There is a small spring that holds the ink cartridge in the ink holder. You will see it stick out from the right hand side of the ink holder where the ink cartridge slides in. If that spring isn't being held to the ink holder by two plastic tabs, (I.E. the plastic tabs are broken) the printer will never recognize the cartridge. If the printer is still under warranty I would contact HP or an authorized repair center for HP. Both the black and color ink holder has this spring. I know of no way to repair this kind of breakage.

Ink catridge installation


I had the exact same problem, the printer needs to be PLUGGED IN AND TURNED ON. Its only when you turn the printer on that the cartridge holders move into place.
