  1. Turn the printer off and open the cover.
  2. Lift the right black rectangular paper sensor (located in the middle of the printer just below cartridge slides) clean it up, try with vacum cleaner first if it does not help use coton swabs and clean it.
Good luck

    There are 3 options


    1. if you hear noise like something is rolling than the rubber roller is broken or is loose of the plastic (if it is loose you can glue it to its base) if broken that have to be replaced.

    2. the gears on the end of rod that that move it are broken (in this case you can find similar gear and replace it.

    3. the motor that moves gear and rod is broken (in this case it is better for you to buy a new printer because you will end up spending a lot for its repair.

I've just put in all new inks and now ther is no comunication from my lap top to the printer. ive turned it off.. and the green light keeps flashing along with the orange intermittently,, Its driving to...


Hi,

I suspect that the reason that there is no communication between your laptop and printer is because the printer will not switch online. This is further confirmed by one of the flashing lights. This is a standard feature if the built-in diagnostics of most current printers tells it that something is wrong.

Since as you posted/described "I've just put in all new inks and now..." was when the problem started, pls verify:
1. the ink cartridges are seated properly at their assigned slots;
2. most ink cartridges when new have a sticker cover of some sort to protect the electronic/contact pins. Pls verify that they were removed;
3. the cover/panel doors are securely lock in place;
4. verify that the USB cable/connectors are attached;
5. you have installed the correct model of ink cartridges, they are original and not generic/replacements/refills;
6. all others are where they should be, paper in tray, slides extended and nothing out of the ordinary;

If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, pls post back with the brand and model of your printer. it might be of further help if you can post your laptop's brand & model as well as the operating system.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Waste tank near full


Hi
The waste ink take is actually just a felt pad that sits under the printer mechanism inside the case and absorbs the ink from your cleanings

Try this:
1 Power off printer
2 Hold RESUME button then press and hold POWER. (The beeper MAY sound once, or may not depending on your model.)
3 Hold POWER and Release RESUME.
4 Press RESUME twice then release both POWER and RESUME buttons.
5 When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME 4 times (for the S900, 3 times for the 8200 apparently).
6 Press power to set data.
7 Print away!

Let me know if that didnt solve your problem

Printer-squeel


The squeeling I think has to do with a small build up of ink on the carriage.

What I do is I open up the printer top so you can see the carriage as if you were putting in a printhead and then you unplug the power to the printer when teh carriage is in the unlocked position. Now you can freely move the carriage back and forth. If you notice there is a clearish long strip going from one side of the printer to the other that is placed flat ontop of the entire metal inside casing of the printer. Clean that entire strip with a cloth or something. Now take a piece of paper and fold it a few times so that it ends up looking like a ruler you can say. Put the paper flat on that clear strip and then take the carriage and move it over the paper. Basically your cleaning the underpart of the carriage that touches that clear strip that is attached to the metal body of the printer. Move it back and forth and you will see ink being put onto the paper thus cleaning it.

Just close the case up, plug in your printer and the squeaking should be solved till next time. As for that light problem, don't know what those lights mean. If there is a problem with teh printhead or ink though it will always tell you on the digital read out, or at least should.
