Hello there
You may not see a paper jam Or some thing is stoping it.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.

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.

I cannot get the cartridge carrier to move to the centre to remove the cartridge. I get alternating J and E error messages

The error indicates that the print carrier stalled. Try to unplug the printer from the power source. Open the scanner unit to access the cartridge area. Check and remove any foreign objects blocking the cartridge carrier path. Hold the solid white strip and gently slide the cartridge carrier to the center of the printer. Remove the cartridges then close the cover.
Replug the printer to the power source. If error still appears, please contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance. If no error appears, reinsert your cartridges. If error reappears after installing your old cartridges, replace the cartridges with different known working cartridges or better with new set of cartridges.
I hope this information has been helpful. Thanks.

When trying to print a document I keep getting an error message stating, "Cartridge Error consult user guide

It seems simple enough, but this is one of the most effective ways of fixing printer cartridge error. Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached.

To reattach the cartridge check the following steps :

turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head.

Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report.

Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

Printer says cartridge error: error 1203

Remove both ink cartridges and check the bottoms to be sure all of the tap is removed. Small pieces of tape frequently are stuck to the cartridge bottom causing errors. Confirm you have the correct cartridges (# 34 for Black(HIGHYIELD) and #33 for color). Reseat the cartridges and try again.

Print cartridge error

It's very common to get this error, some times the cartridges are not insterted properly in it's slot.
Try re-inserting the cartridges by pushing it more force. You can try to wipe the cartrige contact points(shiny silver/copper color metal points) with a dry tissue before fitting it back.

Cartridge Error, Error 50C

Hi there Error 50c

Dell gets this lots so have a try.

Regarding the Dell A940 "Error 50c"....the user guide doesn't seem to mention "Error 50c". They do, however, mention a "Cartridge Error" on page 52 of the manual. They claim this means that the printer has detected a short circuit (fuse/resister) in the cartridge. As you may or may not have noticed in the manual, this is what they recommend doing about it:

1) Press Power to turn the printer off.

2) Lift the printer cover/lid (scanner unit) until the scanner support holds it open.

3) Turn the printer on.
The ink cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position unless the printer is busy.

4) Remove the color ink cartridge.

5) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.
If the error message displays again, replace the black cartridge with a new black cartridge.

If the error message does not display, repeat steps 1–3 and then go to step 6.

6) Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black ink cartridge.

7) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.

If the error message displays again, replace the color cartridge with a new
color cartridge.
If there is no error message (indicated by flashing lights), repeat steps 1–3 and then reinstall both ink cartridges.
8) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.

If you get the error message again, while both cartridges are installed, replace both of the cartridges.

Basically, what they want you to determine is,....if the short circuit is with the "black ink" cartridge or the "color ink" cartridge and then replace the cartridge that has the problem.

You may have to buy a new cartrige.
Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Cartridge error: 50C and Hardward Error: 502

The "clear tape" that you are playing with is called the "encoder strip." A barcode is etched on it that tells the printer carriage where it is. If you clean this carefully (google encoder strip for best methods) you may be able to get rid of 502 error for a while.

Not sure about 50c.

Lexmark T62 Error 32- Unsupported print cartridge

Hi Sue,
Firstly, switch on the printer without a cartridge inside. Put in the old cartridge and if you get the Error 32, it could be poor contact. Clean the contacts in the printer (contact with the chip on the cartridge). If you don't get Error 32, there could be a problem with the chip contacts on the new OEM Lexmark cartridge or a faulty chip. As for other brands or remanufactured cartridges, it could be compatible parts they used. The chip and toner wheel have to be compatible.
Good luck.

Merroy error 100.10.10

There isn't a known error of 100.10.10 on an HP2600n. The is an extremely rare 101.000 which is color plane registration but I'm guessing your not getting that.

I'm assuming your actually having one of the following:
10.0000, 10.0001, 10.0002, or 10.0003
10.1000, 10.1001, 10.1002, or 10.1003

These are supply errors (toner cartridge). The toner cartridges have a smart chip on them and if it's not reading correctly you can get one of the errors I mentioned above in the "10" errors. In that case look at the last number in the string to isolate it. "0"=Black, "1"'Cyan, "2" =Magenta, "3" = Yellow. Simply replace the identified cartridge.

We have seen a lot of refilled or self refilled cartridges that the supplier or user didn't put a new smart replacement chip on the cartridge, pulled the chip without replacing or actually put the wrong one on the cartridge. This would cause the "10" errors. In some rare cases a surge in power can knock out a chip on the cartridge.

Here's a photo of the chip on the black cartridge to help you locate it.

If you are getting a "10" error identify the last number to identify the color and replace the cartridge.

If you are ACTUALLY GETTING AN ERROR 100.10.10, contact HP as it is an undocumented error and likely only HP may be able to resolve it. I have even researched the error through Canon (they make they base machine for HP) and Canon has no record of this error either.

I hope this helps you. If so hit it with a FIXYA. Thanks.
