I tried to put new black ink into the stallin printer and this little metal thing which is on the right of the stall ()black ink socket) went out and I cannot fix it also I think there can be a need to replace (sorry for my English)
this white paper thing which is transfering black ink from cartridge into the paper. I was wondering if it is better and cheaper to fix it or buy new socket-stall for this printer?
Can you help me with that?
This is a known issue with this model HP printer -- they are extending the warranty and sending replacement refurbished printers. It takes a LOT of patience, but many folks have posted tips on how to talk with HP to get the problem resolved at this forum: http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/inkjet/50913#1
I suggest you read through those messages before contacting HP. Best wishes!
The ink cartridges sit inside this area made up of three (3) light grey plastic "walls". The middle "wall" has a spring on it that is held onto the wall by a little molded *** that is part of the plastic mold. This *** breaks and the color ink cartridge will not sit in there correctly.

I know this is years old, but just in case someone else has this problem....
I just had this problem and fixed it quite easily.
Like you, my ink cartridge flooded the ink bay and caused the printer to complain about a pump stall.
Mine was fixed by taking the cover off (u don't need to) and cleaning all the ink off the white strip.
Basically, there's a white piece of plastic with a metal rectangle on it. it sites to the left of the thing under the print heads (the part doesn't move. Under the big part with all the print heads) and to the right of the paper rollers.
It's also the thing that stops the print heads from moving when they're not to be moving.
Mine was covered in black ink. I cleaned it off and turned on the printer to find it working again and no more "pump stall" messages.
I don't know what the plastic piece is for, but cleaning it fixed my problem. Also there's no "pumps" in the printer (it uses gravity to feed the ink).
# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the
bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel. # Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the
cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead
horizontally in one direction only (left to right). # Continue doing this until it looks clean. # Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure
the ink is flowing. # Next, look inside the printer and locate the
carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not
installed at this point.
1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the
contacts at the back of the carrier. 2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and
wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than
# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap
them correctly into the printer.
You could try taking out the new ink and putting in the old. Then uninstall the program, delete all reference to Epson in Regedit, then reinstall the program. Change the cartridge when prompted. Of course, having messed about with the jet, it may not work now !
just solved this on my lemark - open the top so cartridges in middle
put cleaning fluid on the 'pads to the right( i userefill kit cleaning fluid)
on the 'far right pad' ( the ones that the cartriges sit on when lid closed - they're about under(ish) the on/off switch - i filled the little pads up until almost overflowed (aout 1ml)
shut lid so cartridges go back onto the pads, leave for 10 mins, then print out 10 pages of something then repeat the clean again - mine took 3 times then works perfect - hope this helps
Remove cartridge and remove the mains from the wall. Try cleaning the contacts with a cloth dampened WITH WATER, wipe it up with another cloth and let dry. If your old cartridge is not working again, try with a new one, generally is the cartridge which may become damaged, not the printer... hope !
Sounds like a bad cartridge, you may want to try an original, it may be worth the cost instead of a new printer. First clean contacts on printer w/alcohool and put the cartridge back in. Not fixed try a new one may be worth the $40
