    Hi all,

    Can someone try to assist me here - I'm really desperate as I can't do any scans or copies - the only thing the AIO does while trying to scan is printing a black page...

    I have managed to take both parts apart - the top cover (that you lift in order to replace the ink) and the base and then I saw the 3 ribbons that are attached to the top cover.

    I had to disconnect them from the main card that is on the right side of the

    printer, but I couldn't find the "head (you see 4 nipples in there-- that is the top of the head assembly). on the bottom of the head is 2 screws, remove them. now the head will come into 4 parts. Nipples, Gasket, nozzle block, and a metal guard".

    If you have any images - that could help.



    I really appreciate your help!!!



    THANKS!!!

You are good at taking things apart and not destroying them, then the problem can usually be fixed easily.

Remove the ink carts.
on either side of the carrage there is a screw, remove both of them.

CAREFULLY slide out the silver bar those screws are holding. Be sure to note its orentation for putting the thing back in later.

also carefully remove the silver "fingers".

remove the black clip/cover on the right side of the carrage that covers the ribbon cables.

lift the head (you see 4 nipples in there-- that is the top of the head assembly)

gently pull out the ribbon cables.

on the bottom of the head is 2 screws, remove them

now the head will come into 4 parts. Nipples, Gasket, nozzle block, and a metal guard.

get some windex with amonia.

soak the parts for a day or 2.

blot dry, then let it set for atleast 2 days to be sure it is COMPLETELY dry.

reassemble, charge the ink, do the printers head cleaning, and boom. back in business.

this works 90% of the time

Did you repaired old drivers? if so first uninstall your products drivers and also its folders from program files, then uninstall "wrong update" and reinstall scanner. sometimes built in scanning modules comes wrong but everything works with original scanning software, use different software to scan and some of them may work perfectlly.

The black is printing dark redish brown


Dear friend, your Black Ink Cartridge is Empty thats why your printer is using the Colour Cartridge to produce the Black Colour. This is the reason you are having Dark Reddish Brown colour instead of Black.

Printer not printing properly


When you changed the cartridges, the printer automatically prits a test / calibration page. This page must be placed in the scanner, then you have to press the "scan" key (the green one). It will calibrate an align the system. Then you'll be able to print.
