My granddaughter put a toy in printer & a part broke off - thin, translucent piece about 1/4 inch wide by 7 inches long. How do I open up the printer in order to try to put this part back?


Hello,
The plastic piece you are talking about it just prevents the paper from bending forward when is inserted in the printer. That plastic piece should not cause any paper jams or printing problems. If you do happen to have paper jams maybe a piece of plastic fell inside where the paper goes. Simply turn off the printer, remove the paper and flip the printer upside down and shake it a little that should remove any debris inside the printer.

Printer says to change the ink cartriges


Make sure that the ink cartridges don't have the plastic tabs or a little piece of plastic still on the contacts.

Try calibrating the ink cartridge too.

HP office jet feeder won't work when trying to fax


the little pieces of plastic are the sensor flags which is why it will not feed, those are required to let the machine know that the paper is present in the feeder. No flag no feed. Look at the plastic thing try to figure out where it goes in the feeder if you look close, you will see a spot where they go.

Printer rollers came off in paper jam and i cant get them back on


After a week of frustration trying to get the blasted thing back in--I could get the roller piece back in but not with the wire and could get the wire back on the little knob that holds it but that would prevent the roller piece from going in, I cut a notch in the white plastic above the spring hole so that I could, with very small needle nose pliers, hold the straight part of the sprint up while I put the roller piece in place. I then let the spring down through the notch I cut. It took a couple of tries but it all was pretty easy once the notch was cut.

My printer keeps running a cleaning cycle every time i try to print and then it beeps and the display says "open cover"


Here's what I'd do: Uninstall the printer and reinstall it. Another thing to check is cover. There is a little plastic thing that pushes on a switch to tell the printer the cover is closed. Sorry I can't tell you just where on the printer this is, 'cause I don't know. It could be this little piece broke off.
What can you do? Well, what I'm thinking is that the logic board on the printer is going bad. These days, most consumer printers can't be fixed--they are basically throw-away devices. You wouldn't want to pay the price to have it fixed anyway--they cost less to just buy a new one!

Thats an interlock switch, you can fold a piece of paper into a one inch long piece and then stick it in th "plug" this will over ride the switch, you probably have broken the plastic piece that is located on the cover that tells the printer that the cover is closed.

Calibration strip location


I got my answer from a very helpful scanner expert from a posting on the newsgroup comp.periphs.scanners. The plastic piece went near the end of the bezel that holds the glass above the starting position for the scanning run. Once I knew the idea, locating where it went was easy because of small indentations in the bezel the shape and size of the plastic piece. Thanks.

Epson C 44 ink jet printer loose white L shape plastic part.


ONE OF THE ARTICLES IN, www.fixya.com/support/t262916-printer_carriage ,GAVE US SOME GOOD INFORMATION. IT REFERS TO A PAGE IN A PARTS MANUAL THAT WAS IN PDF FORM, WHICH WE HAD TROUBLE DOWN LOADING. WITH THE DOWN LOADING OF AN UP DATED ADOBE, WE MANAGED TO VIEW IT. THE ASSEMBLY THAT THE WHITE PLASTIC L SHAPED PIECE WAS MOUNTED TO WAS HANGING DOWN, AND HAD COME LOOSE. THE PLASTIC L PART GOES ON ONE OF THE SHAFTS ON THE LITTLE WHITE PLASTIC CARRIER, THAT MOUNTS INTO THE SLOTS. NOTE THEIR IS A SMALL SPRING THAT IS ON ONE SIDE AND IT ATTACHS TO ONE OF THE SHAFTS ON THAT SIDE OF THE WHITE PLASTIC CARRIER. PUT IT BACK TO GETHER IF THE PARTS AREN'T BROKEN AND THE PRINTER SHOULD WORK. I FEEL IT WAS THE SPRING COMING OFF OF THAT SHAFT THAT ALLOWED IT TO COME LOOSE, AND SHUT THINGS DOWN. GOOD LUCK

I think you may have the skills to make it
get some plastic epoxy or , i get them from a auto parts store but you can also find them in home improvement stores, etc

make a small paper cylindrical mold that would engulf the old plastic piece, fill it with epoxy to the top, turn it upside down and place it on the plastic part where the old hook was. once solid you can cut this to size so it will hold the spring.

Cat jumped on top of printer and 2 pieces popped out


Hi there you will have to remove the top cover and you will be able to see where it goes as the roller in question is the paper eject roller. there are usually four screws under the top cover and also at the rear of the machine. The picture where the roller is resting on the top of the printer the roller is situated right under that also that white bushing holds the roller in at one end usually the left as you look at the machine from the front.

Thanks J
