    I have a Dell 3010cn color laser printer. When I print, the far right side, about 1 inch across, from top to bottom does not print. After opening front cover, then pulling blue lever (which opens right side, small rectangular-shaped door), I pulled the long blue cleaning rod back and forth about 10 times to clean head. This helped a little, but not enough. Blue and red ink copies on the right side, but it is discolored. When I use black or yellow ink, it does not show up at all. I called a service tech guy from Dell and he said I need a new printer head. (A certified tech guy would have to come out to install--$150 plus parts.) Any other ideas? Thank you very much.

    I have the HP Deskjet 1020 that just started printing a black line down the right side of the page. At the bottom of the page it has toner hanging off the edge. I have cleaned the inside and also done a couple of "cleanings" through the program and the line is still there. I have also replaced the toner. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Open the top of the printer and remove all of the ink catridges. Be careful to place them upright and on top of some newspaper. Lift the lever to the left of the print carriage all the way up until it stops. It should come to rest staight up. You may now remove the print head by rocking it forward first and lift it out. Place the print head in a small container that does not allow for much room on any of the sides. Pour rubbing alcohol into the container and submerse the print head until the intake screens are covered. Gently agitate the container for a few minutes and remove the print head...placing it onto newspaper or paper towels. You may use a cotton tip applicator (Q tip) and gently rub each of the intake screen for each color. Turn the print head over and clean off the applicator portions of the print head (Copper looking with slots). Be careful to not leave any debris on any of the surfaces. Tap the print head onto the paper towel softly to remove any excess alcohol. If you notice a lot of ink still oozing from the bottom of the print head you may repeat the soaking and blotting process several times. After you are satisfied that most of the ink is desolved and dislodged from the print head, wipe all the suface with a clean paper towell to insure the contacts, etc. are clean. Replace the print head into the printer and lower the lever to lock the print head into position. Replace each of the colors in the correct locations and choose the deep clean option either on the menu of the printer or on the maintenance options on your computer (Start, settings, printer, properties, maintenance). Try the deep cleaning option to insure the inks are flowed through the print head and then print a test alignment page. If you still continue to have problems with some of the colors or streaking you may need to replace the print head. There are several companies on-line that sell this item and it runs $50 or more. I have refilled my own print cartridges several times and sometimes incur problems from using them too many times...so they also may need to be replaced with new(er) cartridges.

I downloaded the manual from the web. It pointed to trying this while 1) Open print window.
I used notepad, opened a new document and typed in a short phrase> This is a test (you could use any printing application you want)
Click menu: File->Print (window opens |Print|)
2) In window |Print| - select your printer
- Click button [Preferences] (window opens |Printing Preferences|)
3) In window |Printing Preferences|
- Click tab [Utilities]
- Click button [Head Cleaning| (window opens |Head Cleaning|)
4) In window |Head Cleaning|
- Click button [Start] (message appears"Cleaning takes a few...")
- Click button [Print Nozzle Check Pattern]
(window opens |Nozzle Check|)
5) In window |Nozzle Check|
- Click button [Print] (compare print to picture)
- repeat cleaning if printing is not matching well

GOOD LUCK - Mine still doesn't Match - PG144

SOURCE: PRINTER CUTS OFF RIGHT SIDE OF PAPER

First, on your computer desktop. left click on START. Next, left click on CONTROL PANEL, and left click on PRINTERS. Find your printer on the PRINTERS window, and RIGHT CLICK on the icon. From the drop-down menu, left click on PRINTING PREFERENCES. Use the settings to set up the printer for the paper size and orientation you want to use.Click APPLY , then OK buttons to apply any changes you make. If that does not help,check the side paper guides in the paper source you are using. If they are not against the paper on both sides, the paper will not align properly with the image. Move the guides snug but not tight against the paper. If the guides are too tight, paper may not feed. If moving the guides does not solve the problem, try loosening the guides and reposition the paper until the image is properly aligned. Then see in your owners manual if there is an adjustment called SIDE-TO-SIDE REGISTRATION, and follow the proceedure to adjust the side-to side paper alignment.

SOURCE: No printing on right side, I replaced the imaging drum but that did not solve the problem.

There are two possible solutions to this common problem.

1) The Cyan cartridge may not be in 100% of the way. If the handle of the Cyan cartridge prutrudes even slightly, it can obstruct the printhead for the black developer. Remove and reinstall the Cyan cartridge and test.

2) The printhead is dirty, with some toner spillage on the printhead. All new imaging drums also include a new cleaning pad for the cleaning wand.

The cleaning wand is designed to clean toner off of the printhead. you can see this in your printer manual, but basically, just open the front cover, pull the the blue handle on the right side forward ( this opens the access cover for the cleaning wand on the right side of the printer ).

gently pull the cleaning wand out ALL THE WAY, then slide it back in ALL THE WAY. do this several times.

The cleaning wand is intended to travel across the print head in only one direction, which is why you should make sure that it is pulled all the way out.

One of these two solutions should fix your problem. If the problem is resolved, but then reappears after a short time, then you have a defective developer that is leaking toner on the print head. The color of the defective developer can be determined by the color of the cleaning pad after cleaning the printhead as discribed above.

Try shacking the toner or tap it on it side. Toner might not be even at cartridge. Then you can do a full calibration( You can find it at print quality), do this twice. First full calibration checks for errors, second calibration fix it. Also check if fuser isn't dirty at right side.

Hpc6280 paper caught internally


This information comes from the User Manual on pages 111-112:
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01150745.pdf

Internal paper jams on this machine tend to be in the two-sided printing accessory.

To clear a paper jam from the two-sided printing accessory:
1. Turn off the printer
2. Press in the tabs on the left and right side of the two-sided printing accessory, and remove it by pulling out from the center of the printer.
3. Gently pull the paper out of the rollers. If the paper has torn, check the rollers and wheels for small, torn pieces of paper
4. If it's still not clear, open the two-sided printing accessory by pulling up on the tabs, and remove any paper stuck inside it, then close the accessory by pressing down on the tabs until they lock into place
5. Replace the two-sided printing accessory by pushing it forward until it snaps back into place
6. Turn on the printer, and verify that it works by pushing OK to continue the job it jammed on.

Please help me print round custom stickers. I use paper stickers to print them at home but the ink isn't compatible with the paper. What should I do?


What ink do you use? The right sticker paper will depend on the type of ink you're using. But if you want to spare yourself from all these troubles, I suggest just ask any online printing company to print stickers for you. Believe it or not, it's way cheaper and more practical.
