Canon ip2600 won't feed paper

I fixed mine!! I cut a letter size paper in half lengthwise (so it was skinny and long). Held the printer on my lap with both top and bottom trays open. I noticed the white pegs and skinny black roller inside were turning when I turned it on, so I waited til they were spinning and slid the paper between them along the right side. (Kind of a reverse feed). Had to do it between the crazy ink returns. Yes, the paper crumpled a little, and I did it a couple of times with a couple of papers. Something gave, because after that it started feeding properly again!

Accidently tried to change one of the ink cartridges while the printer was off. Now the printer won't turn on. It's a HP Photosmart C5280 all in one.Thanks

Removing/loading the cartridge are not related to powering section, check adapter voltage if its ok observe any spark generating while inserting the adapter pin in the printer socket if yes there is short in logic card, replace the logic(formatter) card..* very very rare cases if cartridge got short it will damage the logic card,result printer goes in dead condition.

Epson DX4450 error notice "Parts inside yr printer

Not seen THAT particular message before..
Given that Epson and a lot of other printer manufacturers produce their printers and sell them at a loss in the hope that customers will buy the inks (which are the real earners), and have their printers serviced by their service centre (usually at a cost higher than the actual value of the printer), I would seriously consider getting another printer, but only after this one has expired. There is a lot of difference between a warning message and a dead printer.. I'd advise running it into the ground then recycling it responsibly

Looks like dead. when powering on, control panel shows "self test" and then nothing shows up on the panel and printer is dead.


Try to reset the memory on your HP Officejet. Do the following:

  • Turn off the power to the HP Officejet and unplug the power cord.
  • Hold down the "# + 9" button.
  • Reconnect the power cord and continue holding the button for another five seconds.
  • Turn the HP Officejet on, and the memory should be reset.
If this won't work, you can try to upgrade the firmware but you can only do this if the printer is still detected by the Computer. You can check control panel and see if the printer is listed as "online" or "ready".

If the above steps won't work. Your printer is deem defective and needs to be replaced. You can try calling HP support for more info. Here's their US number: 1-800-474-6836

Hope this helps.

My printer simply wont print, I just get blank pages even when printing the test page. I have tried cleaning, deep cleaning nozzle alignment, everything!

HI there,
It sounds like you've done everything right, and it still won't print. Your printer is dead - and you need a new one.

I turned on the printer and it won' go. no lights dead.

Is this new? Was it working before in the same place with same pc?
Check power supply. Plugged in?, Local breaker at socket? Test meter the power plug that goes to printer. Still dead? Use as door stop. If new purchase, and still dead, take back for exchange or refund.
