SOURCE: how to change ink cartridge in canon mp390

With the machine powered on. Just lift up on the entire top portion on the platen unit, lower the front verticle cover and the printhead should come to the correct position to change out the ink tanks, just tilt tanks towards the front of the unit and lift out.

SOURCE: The alarm light keeps flashing

Oh dear, that means the motorized mechanism inside the printer that moves the print head has failed. I have seen it numerous times with these MultiPass printers... About the only thing you can try is simply unplugging the printer for a good 2 minutes, then replugging it in and hoping it "kick-starts" the motor. At best this is a temporary fix and it will happen again sooner than later. Many times this does not fix it either, that means the motor has already completely failed.

It can be repaired but it is very cost prohibitive... It is much less expensive to just replace the printer unfortunately. If you happened to buy this printer within 5 years (you probably did) AND used a major credit card (not a debit card) then it may be covered under your credit cards automatic electronics warranty. Many credit cards do this. Hopefully this scenario is the one you are in... and can call the card company to file a claim on the printer and get a refund.

Regardless though you will want to get a new printer... An equivalent, well better one really, can be had for $79 with free shipping and no tax. Check this one out:

We don't make any money off you buying a printer so please don't think I'm just saying that to try and get you to buy a new one, I assure you it is hardware failure you have on your printer.

Thanks

Replacing cartdiges in sx 200 epaon


Press the ink button on the control panel repeatedly. This will work if at least one cartridge is completely out. With the scanner unit open, then the first press of the ink button will move the cartridge carrier to line up the empty cartridge with an "empty cartridge" mark on the printer. Each subsequent press will cause the next empty cartridge to line up with the mark. Once all of the empty cartridges have been indicated, the next press of the ink button will bring the cartridges into the replacement position.

If you want to change a cartridge when none are empty, you need to enter the Epson Toolbox (with the printer in a Ready state - scanner unit closed, etc). Then use the software to set the printer to change the ink cartridges. When prompted by the software, open the scanner unit and follow the directions for changing the ink cartridges.

If the cartridge carrier isn't moving when you press the ink button, look for anything blocking the path of the carrier. Even small pieces of paper could stop the mechanism. Use a flashlight to check the corners. (You may want to unplug the printer and try moving the cartridge carrier by hand to check below it.) Some models have the cartridge carrier run on a plastic strip that can come out of the guide on the back. Move the strip back and up and down until it is repositioned.

I hope this helps.

Received an error code 50c on my Dell printer


Regarding the Dell A940 "Error 50c"....the user guide doesn't seem to mention "Error 50c". They do, however, mention a "Cartridge Error" on page 52 of the manual. They claim this means that the printer has detected a short circuit (fuse/resister) in the cartridge. As you may or may not have noticed in the manual, this is what they recommend doing about it:

1) Press Power to turn the printer off.

2) Lift the printer cover/lid (scanner unit) until the scanner support holds it open.

3) Turn the printer on.
The ink cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position unless the printer is busy.

4) Remove the color ink cartridge.

5) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.
If the error message displays again, replace the black cartridge with a new black cartridge.

If the error message does not display, repeat steps 1–3 and then go to step 6.

6) Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black ink cartridge.

7) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.

If the error message displays again, replace the color cartridge with a new
color cartridge.
If there is no error message (indicated by flashing lights), repeat steps 1–3 and then reinstall both ink cartridges.
8) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.

If you get the error message again, while both cartridges are installed, replace both of the cartridges.

Basically, what they want you to determine is,....if the short circuit is with the "black ink" cartridge or the "color ink" cartridge and then replace the cartridge that has the problem.

Thanks for all the ideas and help ; )

I have a Canon PIXMA MX860 and have error 6a80. i have shut off and on twice no paper jam. totally stuck


6A80 is a purge unit error, the purge unit is the cleaning assembly on the right where the printhead parks when shut down. If you can move the carriage out of the corner, use a flashlight and see if there are paper scraps or the like keeping the purge assembly from moving freely.
