Hello, First of all, let's start with some simple questions. 1 Was the cartridge ever refilled or is it in the original state? 2 How exactly did this occured? I'm asking this because most printers have a limited space inside them for the cartridge to move around when printing. If they don't fit exactly as they should, they will most likely hit something in their movement when printing. If your cartridge was refilled maybe the person who did that didn't attached the cartridge top part properly and now it moved out of position and hits the inner top of the cartridge housing. Please provide me first with these informations so I can better assist you.

  • HP Photosmart 1215, 1215vm, 1218, and 1218xi printers
  • HP Photosmart 1315 Printer
SOLUTION: Hard reset of the printer A hard reset of the printer may clear the error. Here is how to perform the hard reset:

SOURCE: My hp 1012 printer stopped printing.

You've probably slipped a gear or something is lodged inside. Unplug all the cables, take out the paper, lift it up, turn it upside down and shake it. This is good for getting out staples and paper clips. Hopefully no gears are damaged. If problem continues, probably a gear is slipped. If the shaking doesn't dislodge anything then either call a technician or just replace it.

We are in the middle of printing our Tax Return and an orange light keeps blinking on the top of the printer - and it has stopped printing.


Hi and thank you for using fixya:
On this specific printer model this light means that your paper has jammed, you need paper, or your ink is low. Please re-start your computer and printer and try again. If problem persists check ink levels on the printer settings (computer)
Good luck

HP DeskJet 812C Hardware Problem! with Printer cartridge carriage. Printer Cartridge retracted into right side of case will not come out. There is No paper jam in machine to prevent it from doing so. ...


Disconnect the "data" cable (parallel or USB).
Disconnect the "power" cable.
Reconnect the "power" cable.
Turn the printer on.
Lift the printer's lid -- the print-carriage should slide the printer-heads to the "middle" position.

If all else fails, take the printer to a qualified technician, for more trouble-shooting.

Failure to print


Here's what we did: Lifted the lid and turned off printer. Then turned on again. Unplugged power cable from back of printer, moved the carriage toward the middle of the printer. Took out cartridges and closed the lid. Plugged the power cord back in. Reinstalled the cartridges. After the alignment page it worked fine. These instructions are paraphrased from HP website troubleshooting. I don't have any idea why any of it worked, but it did and I'm grateful.

Uncompleted printing job


My Lexmark Z715 printer has always worked fine until this morning. I turned it on and the light blinked so I turned it off and then on again and the cartridge slamed one side of the pinter and then slamed the other side. I tried it several times and always the same. It would not stop in the middle so I could check it out. Does it need replacing?

hi!

Try to cancel your document in the printers menu even if you restart the pc or the printers memory stores the previous command.

1.The idea is that printers has its own memory unless you cancel the document that you print.

e-mail me at wendel_tenebroso@yahoo.com if the problem persist
