Question about Lexmark P4350 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Lexmark P4350 print catridge does not move.

When I press 'print', the catridge makes a strange loud noise, moves hesitatingly forward. It then slams back very loudly into the wall of the machine. I suspect the pulling cord is broken. Can you show me, preferably with a diagram, how to fix this problem?

The carrier slides back and forth on a bar that must slide smoothly. When you open the printer up, the heads come to the center for cartridge removal, so that part of the bar is oiled. Try lightly spraying a silicone or Teflon spray or a drop of high quality machine oil to the bar where the head will go through it, smearing it along the the bar. Another part is the plastic belt with teeth on it that moves the head from side to side. If the teeth have broken off, the head won't move properly. Some of these printers have an entire head assembly where the cartridges set that can be removed after the cartridges are out. If this print head assembly is damaged or worn out you will also get the error. The head damage is usually because some one yanked jammed paper vigorously out, pushing the head out of position, or the print head was moving when something stopped the head.

Carriage slams into left side

In this case unplug the power supply from the Printer........... 1. Open the Printer Cover.......... 2. Remove both the Catridges from the Printer............ 3. Move the Catridge Carrier which holds the catridge from right to left and from left to right for about 10 times............ 4. Try to make a copy without the catridges........If this works and it gives a Blank Page out............ 5. Insert both the catridges turn the printer off and turn it on again........... 6. Now it should work fine........ Good Luck......

I'm getting error 1203 on my Lexmark P4350. I do not have a manual, I lost it. Thanks.

It seems that it's caused by your catridges overflowing, even from brand new catridges after a several prints or right after you refilled the catridges. Check to see if ink are smeared on the holder where the contact panel with the catridge.

First of all check the quality of the paper used, is it of low thickness. if so change with a different type.
If the printing paper is good then the rollers can be moving over with different pressure on the paper making it touch unevenly and so pulling the paper differently.adjust the rollers and if possible tighten so that it touches evenly.
The roller will now move the paper without any side pulling and jamming.

Brother DPC-165C has 'Init Unable AF' error

Yup. I suspect the head has been removed from the unit. There are adjustments on some printers. It was assembled wrong. The grating noise is likely the auto cleaner. If it cannot go 'home' the unit will not initialize. Possibly the head detect sensor is broken or covered. If the head will not home (moves out and back more than once or slams home hard), 'Init Unable AF'. You may be able to order a service manual from Brother for this. A repair shop can order the manual as well. (I suspect you need a new print head as well. You might want to replace the printer) see tips on bubblejet printers.

Lexmark z22 printer won't work

This is due to catridge movement belt may loose or dust is accumulated on the movement rod of the catridge. Clean/Tighten the belt may solve your problem.

Revert back for more assistance.

When i press copy the carriage shoots across and

The slamming of the carrier past the forward stop cause a reported carrier jam.

You should have the printer serviced by an authorized Lexmark Servicer.

Lexmark P4350 print catridge does not move.

Sounds like the photo sensor for the "transducer" for the cartridge assy is not working (or there is a power supply related problem....)

Look for loose connections of any cable from the small blocks on either side thin strip that goes through (behind) the the cartridge assy.It has thousands of verticle lines on it.....

They could also be dirty (Incorrect speed sensing).
(Try to clean if printer is dirty...Be careful not to blow i the cartridge assy area as the ink may fly everywhere)

DO not touch the thin strip with verticle lines .Very Delicate...
