That is natural because you still have ink on your printer. the work around for it is to use your printers driver which is installed on your computer. note that if you are using windows, you can access it using the maintenance option.

How to remove & clean the Print Head

1.Turn on the printer. Open the cover to expose the printer carriage. Wait for 3 seconds and unplug the printer from the electrical outlet. The print cartridge will stay in place by unplugging the power.

2.Remove the ink cartridge from the carriage by lifting up on the tab holding each cartridge in place. Remove the ink cartridge by pulling it out and up.

3.Use a lint-free cloth to gently wipe the copper contacts on the bottom of the ink cartridges. If the residue is stubborn and won't wipe off, use a cotton swab dipped in bottled water to remove the residue by rubbing gently. Do not wipe the nozzle on the ink cartridge; wipe only the flat contacts. Lay the cleaned ink cartridge on it side on newspaper. Do not stand it upright with the copper contacts touching the newspaper or the ink will drain out.

4.Use the lint-free cloth to wipe the contact points in the print carriage. If the residue won't come off, use a cotton swab wet with bottled water to remove the residue. Wait 5 minutes after you have cleaned the printer contacts before replacing the ink cartridge.

5.Place the ink cartridges back in the printer cartridge. Snap down the top to secure the cartridges. Plug the power cord in the wall outlet. Close the cover. The printer is ready to use after running through the initialization.

Can't get cartidge holder to stop in right place to insert new cartridge

If yours is an Epson printer, push the cartridge change button on the front panel twice. The ink carriage will retreat to the extreme right hand side. When you have loaded the new cartridge (s) push the same button twice. After a while the carriage will prime the new cartridge, the green light will come on and you may print. Other printers: For HP, open the lid with the power on. If all else fails,m I pull the plug. manually move the carriage, change the cartridge and re-power. Always try pushing the cartridge change button on the front panel first, however.

How do I change the cartridge

  • Turn on your printer and lift the access door. The print carriage will move to the center.

  • Once the print carriage has stopped moving, remove the empty cartridge by pushing down on it and pulling it towards you.
  • Remove the replacement cartridge from its packaging. Peel the pink tape away from the bottom while holding the cartridge by the sides.
  • Hold the replacement cartridge with the label on the top. Slide cartridge into the appropriate slot. Insert cartridge at a slight angle, then apply pressure until it snaps into place.
    • Close the print carriage access door.
    • Align the printer if it prompts you and if not just align it manually

    Ink cartridges cannot be recognized

    The printer must detect unique 'chips' on the ink cartridges before it will print. Non-Epson ink cartridges may not have the right chips. Or there may be a bad electrical connection between the carriage assembly and the chips when cartridges are in place. Anything preventing the chips from being electrically connected, (including dirty contacts), can cause the error.
    In my case the chips were not staying in place on the ink cartridges. Since I am using a CIS (Continuous Ink System), the chips had been replaced, but were not staying in alignment with the contacts on the carriage. I used a very small amount of hot melt glue to secure the loose end of each chip to each cartridge. I have not received the error message again.

    I am getting the following error message: "0x07d54dd6 2005: lib_barracu". How do I fix it?

    Can you turn the machine on and lift the print-carriage access door, this should (hopefully bring the cartridges to the right side where you can remove them) If this is possible, remove the cartridges and then turn the unit off, if the cartridges stay in the same location where you can access them then place the cartridges back into slots and turn the printer back on.

    If the cartridges are not accessable then turn the printer on and open the print-carriage door, and insert cartridges.

    Please let me know! Thanks!

    MFC-665CW "unable to print" 30 error what can I do to resolve this problem? I think I had a papaer jam and my sister pulled the paper out and still had an issue. help!!

    Several conditions may cause the error message Machine Error 30 to be displayed on the LCD. This error may be the result of one of the following:
    • The print head carriage is failing to return to its home position to the far right of the unit.
    • Both of the springs located on each side of the carriage is out of place.
    • The cartridge covers may not be locked securely in place.

    Please follow the instructions listed below to correct this problem:

    1. Press the INK button on the Control Panel.

    2. Using the dial pad, press 2 (Replace Ink). The display will prompt you PLS OPEN COVER.

    3. Pull the Scanner Cover release lever located under the Control Panel and lift the Scanner cover. The carriage should move to the left in order to replace the ink. If the carriage does not move to the left, your machine will require service.

    4. After the carriage moves to the left, press down each cartridge cover and remove all ink cartridges from the machine. There are 2 springs located on each side of the carriage that hold the print head against the carriage assembly. They are thin silver springs approximately 64mm or 2 1/2 inches, set at an angle.

    5. If the spring is out of place, press the spring back into place. You can use the spring on the opposite side of the carriage as a guide as to the correct position.

    6. If the spring is not out of place, reinstall each ink cartridge.

    7. After installing the ink cartridges, close the covers and verify they are securely locked into place. Your machine then prepares for a head cleaning and goes online. The LCD screen prompts you to verify if a new ink cartridge was inserted for each color you removed. For example, DID YOU CHANGE BLCK 1. YES 2. NO.

    8. Press 2 (No).
      If you decided to place a new ink cartridge in for any of the colors when uninstalling and reinstalling the cartridges in the above process, press 1 (Yes). The machine will automatically go through a cleaning cycle.

    The unit should then return to date and time. If Machine Error 30 continues to appear on the display, your unit will require service.

    I can't get the ink cartridge carriage to stop in the right place

    It would help if you told us the printer make & model, however the easy way (for most inkjets) is to turn on the printer, when the carriage moves across simply pull out power cable or switch off at the wall socket. You can now push the carriage into the right position. Ensure it is pushed back the the park position before turning back on.

    Please take a moment to rate this solution, thanks.
