My canon MP258 show error code on screen E03, what should i do. help someone can help me. really appreciate it.


That is due to the clear plastic strips inside the printer, the one that run behind the cartridge holder, being dirty or damaged. This plastic strip with black marking on it, is used to tell the printer where the cartridges actually are. Unfortunately it could also be the sensor that reads this strip being damaged. Inspect the strip with a bright torch to see if any ink or dirt is on this strip, use a bright torch when doing so, it makes it much easier. Also check behind the cartridge holder for any torn bits of paper that could be jammed in it. Make sure the printer is unplugged from the power during this!!
I hope this helps
Regards GM

When printing all black areas have vertical lines going through ,have cleaned print heads and changed toner - no change in quality.


Clean the encoder strip, the clear plastic band that runs behind the print carriage. A Q-tip damp with alcohol will wipe off any grease or ink. You'll find a grease spot just above the area on your print that has the vertical line.

Look inside behind where the carriage is, the plastic strip behind the carriage probably has an ink or grease spot right where you see the blurred letters. Wipe that strip carefully with a Q-tip moist with alcohol, and the blurs should go away...

Where is the encoder strip on brother fax machines?


I am familiar wih some inkjet models. The encoder strip would usually be behind the ink cartridge carriage. It is a thin clear plastic strip across the length of the carriage. The ink cartridge housing glides back and forth along the encoder strip.

Dell A920 cartridge stall error.


Hi, I HAD the same problem, but not anymore!! I just opened the top to expose the "inside of the printeri" and checked the long clear band at the rear behind the print head. Make sure that the clear ribbon is NOT TWISTED. There is a small metal bar with a small extended part on the far left interior of the printer. Just make sure that the slot on the clear band is fitted on that extended part. This will put the print head back "on track" This worked for me!!

Nozzle Clogging & Black Cartridge Leaking


Hi e-margaret. There's a bit of confusion here. Horizontal banding is due to LACK of ink flow to the paper. "Splodging" is due to too much. The former can be due to blocked/faulty print head nozzles or a faulty/empty-ish cartridge, or some less common problem like the waste ink pipe blocked. The latter is usually due to a leaking cartridge.

The first job is to mop up ink slopping around under the print head. Cut some strips of kitchen towel and fold them into 3 layers so you have a strip about 2 cm wide. Place them on the print head track. Turn on the printer, and as soon as the print head moves, pull out the power cord from the back of the printer. Now you should be able to move the print head carefully by hand too and fro over the towels. Repeat this with clean towel strips until most of the surplus ink is cleaned up. Remove the towel strips, replug in the power chord and switch the printer back on. Do a head clean cycle and nozzle check 3 or 4 times. If the nozzle check output looks OK, try a test print of a text document

If things are still not OK, report back on what happens in a new comment. If my instructions are not clear enough, please post a new comment asking for clarification.

Dell 920 Printer is giving annoying horizontal white lines


We can try one more thing here...

Cleaning the encoder strip...

1. Turn the printer off.
2. Take the power cable out from printer.
3. Open the front cover .
4. Using a dry, lint free cloth, pinch the encoder strip on the right-hand side of the cartridge carriage and pull your fingers across it toward the right-hand side of the printer.
Note: The encoder strip is a narrow band of clear plastic and can be difficult to see without direct lighting running parallel to metallic rod.
5. You can move the ink cartridges manually to a side so that you can clean the strip completely.
6. Close the cover, connect the power and turn on the printer and try again,

It should work....let me know if it does

Dell all in one 926 printer


its a very important part of the printer .that band is called the bar encodder strip.if its broken from its ends it is to be replaced or if just moved out of the printer but looks proper then you have to open the printer and refit it.there is a space for thet strip behind the back of the cartridge carriage from where it should pass while you fit it again.

thanks.
