Remove the printer cartridge, take warm water in a plate, deep the nozzles of the cartridge in the warm water for 5-10 minutes (ensure only 2 to 3 mm of cartridge is deeped in water), dry the cartridge and try connecting it.

Why do my color pictures have purple bands running across them?


Hi

sounds like either yellow or cyan printhead is clogged. Try going to 'Printer properties' then 'Maintenance' and run 'Printhead deep clean' once or twice. If that doesn't work, your printhead is blocked. Remove the printhead and run some hot water through it. Make sure you dry it WELL before fitting back in printer.

good luck

Ireplaced the printhead on a Xerox phaser 8400. I am now getting an error message 04.024.46.40803. i put the pivot block in that came with the origonal head (not working correctly) and have tried it


This fault code indicates a problem with the process control system. The machine cannot successfully home the transfix mechanism.

Check for obstructions around the printhead. Look for ink shards in the gears of the tilt drive. Check the printhead wiring harness to make sure it is not blocking the printhead movement (left/right & front/back). Remove the waste ink tray and look for ink build-up.

Check the process drive gears for damage. Ensure the gears are correctly aligned and homed.

Check the nose cone alignment on the X-Axis motor. Is the nose cone aligned with the printhead shaft (left/right movement).

When you removed the square metal block from the printhead shaft on the Left side, did you reinstall it with the "dot" in the same orientation as the diagram above it shows with a check mark?

I have deep cleaned my MP190 twice as per instructions and still I get horizontal lines in my printing.


The printhead has a few blocked nozzels. If deep cleaning does not clear the blocked nozzels then the printhead needs to be changed.
A new printhead is an expensive item and costs nearly as much as a new printer. I suggest you put your money towards a new and better printer that may be a more cost effective solution.

Printer error 07,007.40:80035


Xerox 2424 or 8400 series 07,007.40/49 is a process motor sequence error often caused by the printhead leaking wax on to the pivot shaft and bearing block mounted on the left side of the printhead unit, this stops the printhead tilting. Check for leaking wax around the silver block on the side of the printhead or around the waste tray, if wax gets into the tilt gear at the back of the waste tray slot, this is the error it shows.

General Error Message


The "General error" message on the Epson R320 (as with most other Epson inkjets) can mean a whole host of things.

The most common ones are:

  • Printhead carriage blocked
    (something is blocking the printhead from moving left and/or right properly)
  • Cleaning/Parking pad area blocked
    (the printhead can't reach it's normal resting position)

  • Disconnected sensor
    (a ribbon cable has become disconnected or a sensor has failed so the printhead or paper location is not detectable)

  • Cartridge chip sensor issue
    (one or more of the cartridges has not been installed properly, has a "bad" chip or the sensor wires in the printhead carriage [where the cartridges sit] have been damaged)

If you can provide a bit more information on the error, possibly from the status monitor software that might give a bit more of a clue but hopefully the points above will give you a few places to look for possible causes.

HP L7680 Printer Head Problem


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Step two: Increase the print quality mode
If reprinting did not help, try increasing the print quality mode.
In the application you are printing from, click File, and then click Print. Make sure the printer is selected, and then click Properties.
Select the Paper/Quality tab. In the Print Quality area, choose the next higher quality setting. If the current setting is Draft, choose Normal. If the current setting is Normal, choose Best.
Step three: Print in grayscale (black area streaking only)
If the streaks are in a black area of a black and white printout, change to grayscale printing.
NOTE:- This step does not apply to color printouts.
In the application you are printing from, click File, and then click Print.
Make sure the printer is selected and click Properties.
Click the Color tab, and select Print Grayscale and High Quality.
Step four: Clean the printheads
If the print quality is still bad, clean the printheads.
Make sure the printer is loaded with unused white paper.
Open HP Solution Center.
Click Settings, Print Settings, and then select Printer Toolbox.
Click the Service Tab.
Click Clean Printhead, and then click Clean.
Step five: Align the printheads
If the print quality is still bad, align the printheads.
Make sure the printer is loaded with unused white paper.
Open the printer Toolbox, and select the Printer Services tab.
Click Align Printheads. The Align Printheads window opens. Click Align.
The printer prints an alignment page. The lines in the patterns should appear to be straight. Click OK when the page finishes printing.
Step six: Calibrate the linefeed
If the print quality is still bad, calibrate the linefeed:
Make sure the printer is loaded with unused white paper.
Open the printer Toolbox and select the Printer Services tab.
Click Calibrate Advanced Linefeed. The Advanced Linefeed Calibration window opens. Click OK .
Step seven: Replace one or both printheads
If the print quality is still bad after performing all the above steps, one or both of the printheads will have to be replaced. Print a PQ Diagnostic page to see which printhead should be replaced.
Make sure the printer is loaded with unused white paper.
Press the Setup button.
Press 1 and * simultaneously.
Look at the color blocks labeled Test Pattern 2. Some or all of them could show white horizontal streaks. If none of the blocks are streaked, the printheads are okay.
If the Black block has lines – replace the KY printhead.
If the Cyan block has lines – replace the MC Printhead.
If the Magenta block has lines – replace the MC Printhead.
If the Red block has lines – replace the KY printhead.
If the Green block has lines – replace the KY printhead.
