Open lid and check for paper jams.  Otherwise, turn the thing off and reboot.

Printer Carrier Stall


You may have had a foriegn object fall inside the printer such as a pen or paper clip.You may also have a broken sensor which enables the carraige to move to the centre when the lid is open. You can try and carefully move the carraige over manually when the printer is turned off to see if there is something blocking its path. If the sensor is broken you can replace the cartridges by moving the carraige over when turned off.

Lid at printing end does not seem to fit rite....must press down on right side to restore printing. As long as you retain the pressure, it continues printing.


Do you mean that you need to retain the pressure to have good print quality on the right side or you need the pressure to keep the amber status light from showing ?

There is a small optic sensor that functions to indicate if the lid is open or not. The printer will not print as long as it thinks the lid is open. If the lid won't snap down tight enough you can fool the printer by placing a small piece of label or something opaque over the sensor to make it think the lid is closed. The sensor is located on the right side just behind the green adjusting wheel used to adjust the label width guides.

Hope that helps...

1.open the lid from back of your printer, you may see astiff film .,give a print command and check the film rolling visually , if itsbroken then it might give you annoying sound like something's broken , but itcan only be visualized giving a print command ,
if its really broken from edges it may give you this problem, it can be fixedby local service center , 2.(clean your printer ) >Open printer >remove the toner > check for any piece of stapler pins or any paper or anyother waste that's stuck in between drums. > if you have a wind blower machine blower it . > must keep in mind to blower it in open area, causeblack particalls will make you cough, or would get dusty, 3. your toner must have ink dust at one side, shake thetoner and then insert in printer , this will help you . I hope it helps you

Hp deskjet printer 6840 wont print .keeps on saying top cover is open when it is actually closed.


Pop off the right side cover - it is just held with clips. At the hinge, you will see that the cover switch arm that is supposed to move up and down as the cover opens & closes (in the slot in the geared hinge) is probably broken off. It is in the up position when the lid is closed, and down when the lid is open. I cut the shaft of a Q-tip to length and wedged it into the space to keep the cover switch up all of the time and still allow free movement of the lid.

Print Access Door?


Dis you put any packaging in the printer to protect it? Just make sure that there is nothing unusual under the lid.

Canon pixma 530


unplug it from power and plug it back in. 
if that doesnt work try unplugging it and GENTLY try moving the ink carrage to make sure it isnt in some odd position that the porinter cannot detect. 
IF the carrage is properly seated on the one side of the printer it is normal for it to be locked and seated on pads that keep the ink from drying out.

Oki c5150 wont print black


First, clean the LED heads with a lint free cloth and isopropyl alcohol (the LED heads are the attachments on the underside of the lid when you open your printer; four of them for each color). Try printing something after doing that. If it's still an issue just with black, try switching the black and magenta drums/toner (keeping them locked together). The drum w/ toner cartridge simply pulls straight up and out, no switches or locks to flip. Then print a page of text; which will output from the printer in magenta. If that looks okay, then it may be an issue with your black drum and needs to be replaced.
