Lexmark 5400 cartridge carrier slams up against back???? Won't stop!! It's a new printer, put in a high cap black and low cap color cartridge. Any ideas how to fix this?


Cartridges may not be seated properly. Remove all the cartridges from the printer. Close the cover. Unplug the printer from the power source. Wait for about 10-15 seconds. Plug printer back to power source. If printer ink cartridge carrier still slams on the sides, encoder strip of the printer might be damaged. If it's still within warranty from where you bought it, have it replaced at that store. If ink cartridge carrier is not slamming to the sides, re-insert the cartridges. Make sure there are no obstructions along the carrier's path. Close the cover. Let the printer print the alignment page. If it's still going to slam the carrier, have it replaced.

Carriage swings from one side to other


Remove the cartridges from the printer. Close the cover. Unplug the printer from the power source. Wait for about 10-15 seconds before plugging it back in. Once the printer's ready, re-insert the cartridges. Close the cover. It should try to print an alignment page. Let it print the page all the way through without cancelling it. If carrier is not slamming to the sides anymore, problem's resolved. But, when after re-inserting the cartridges and the printer tries to print the alignment and still slamming the carrier to the sides, that sounds more like a mechanical problem and needs to be replaced. If your printer is still within warranty, you can call Lexmark. They might send you a replacement. Good luck!

The print cartridge is slamming from one side to the other. And then it display that obstruction and error 1200


Hi
Ok you can try this.
Error code: 1200
This error code is commonly associated with the Dell 922 printer. Usually you might see the cartridge moving front and back and slamming itself against the printer. You need to tighten the strings located on the back of the printer and then it should work fine

Clean the carriage rail. This is the round chrome piece that the carriage assy that holds the cartridges rides on. Use a paper towel that is slightly moist.
Be sure to not force anything. Unplug the printer after you get the carts in the middle. Move them to one side and clean and then move them to the other and repeat.


Lift up the scanner to reveal the cartridge compartment; under the chrome rod on which the cartridges run there are two small gaps about 8cm apart. In the right one should sit the paper sensor which is a small black rod that hooks downwards; the problem I had was my sensor had bent up and out of the gap so all I had to do was bend it gently back into position using a small screwdriver.

Hope you get it to go.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Unlock scanner message and ink cartriges slam left


if the cartridges are slamming, it means either the encoder strip is dirty or damaged, or the sensor reading it is damaged.
average repair on something like that will be at least $95.00

thanks

I have an hp deskjet 3940 printer and the power light keeps flashing; moreover; the moment I turn on my pc, the inkcartridges slam from left to right.


There is a plastic strip that the cartridges move along with small positioning markings on it. When this strip gets coated with ink the sensors cannot read the position causing the cartridges to go beyond the end mark and slam. Unplug the printer power and open it to access the cartridges, use a cloth damp with water and clean this strip - BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO DAMAGE OR DISCONNECT IT!

C4180 printer


Hi ,
This product clearly needs a servicing as far as my experience goes . Still we shall go ahead and try to reach the solution or else this definitely needs servicing. I shall explain why -
1. check cartridge on right : if you have replaced the black cartridge and have been using the original cartridges then its an issue with the print heads. The black print head needs to be replaced by the local service centre . There is a blockage in the nozzles of the print cartridge that passes out the ink.
2. slam to the right : if i am not wrong this is the carriage you are referring to. Do the following steps (though i presume you might have done it if you have reset the printer)-
a. pull out the power cable
b. open the cartridge door and hold the carriage with your hand and move it manually 4-5 times left to right with as much speed as possible....there should be no obstruction on the way it moves.....if there is a pin / peice of paper / any obstruction - remove it if you can. The carriage could also slam if the pin of its movement has gone loose and it keeps on slamming uncontrolably. This seriously needs a servicing from the local service centre.
