Question about Barebone Systems

2 Answers

I have a Canon PIXMA MP530 all in on copier/printer. I inadvertently inserted a magenta ink cartridge into the yellow cartridge slot. I immediately corrected the problem but, now when I try to print I get an error message telling me that more than one magenta cartridge has been installed. Use only one. Well, there is only one now but, it won't let go of that concept. Thanx in advance for you assistance.

Hi,

Did you try disconnecting the printer a few hours to reset it?

Try to reset your printer it might fixed your problems:
To reset your device do the following steps.

While the printer is on, remove the power cord from the back of the printer, wait 30 seconds, and then plug the power cord into the back of the printer.
If the printer is not already on, turn it on by pushing the power button.
Try printing again. I think it will help you.


Thanks
Iqbal

Try opening the printer properties and cleaning the print heads (should probably be done each time a cartridge is changed), it uses some ink up but should clean the build up from running the previous cartridge dry and hopefully solve your printing problem.

Good luck.

Hello Landscapeman ,

You need to specify the paper type when the print dialog box appears. Heavy glossy paper needs to spend more time in the fuser so that the toner is fixed.

Pls chk thoroughly the inner parts are clear of any shreds of paper. Blow air thro vacuum cleaner. A small piece of paper sitting on a sensor can create this sort of problem. (For eg, the cartridge stops at both the ends after 'sensing' the end. If paper sticks here, it cant sense and will lead to a crash)

Hi,
take out all of the cartridges, and carefully inspect the mating ( chip surfaces ) for dirt-dust-debris.
This could be a sensor related issue, look carefully at the printer itself to see if theres any switches or relays, that the actual cartridge mates up with when installed.
sometimes, the cartridge just needs taking out, and simply reinserting, push firmly into it,s slot.
if non of this works, turn off the printer, and check the cabling for suspected damage wear, or connecting. i.e bent pins et,c.

I have a Canon Pixma IP 5000 inkjet printer and am using Mac OS 10.3.9. It has 5 ink cartridges: 2 black (3e and 6) and one each yellow, magenta and cyan. I use it all day every day. After printing...


Thanks for getting back to me.
Sorry this ain't a solution but it seems to be the only cash-free way to contact you. No problem not solved - though I have tried everything. Dismantled the printer; washed, dried and replaced the waste ink pads; washed the print head; blew compressed air through the print-head sponge; replaced the cartridge 3 times; printed hundreds of test prints. I can't think of anything else to do and so I think the only solution is to replace the printhead (probably not even available) or replace the printer. The latter is looking most likely.

Recheck that the ink is correctly inserted & protective tap has been removed. ( may sound lame but it is the most common problem). It would not be uncommon for the new cartridge right out of the box is also defective. Return & replace.

When the printer runs out of ink, the head moves accross as normal to let me change the ink, but while I am trying to change the ink cartridge, the head starts moving spontaneouly and jams with the ink...


Printers can do strange things, they are none the less mechanical in some respects. Whilst in operational mode, they can start up and resume a print job that has been spooling for hours ( usually due to network issues or overloads ) but getting back to your problem, i would suggest turning the unit off when the head is in the correct spot and insert the cartridge.


Additional info ( not required reading )
I have one theory is that most manufacturers are re-using older software drivers and updating where needed, and aren't getting away from the step by step type program enough. If a printer misses a step for whatever reason, it will continue to behave strangely until the unit has been put back in sync. Please someone tell me why is this so ? and if i am wrong, why does my printer fire up in the middle of the night, spit out 10 blank pages for no apparent reason ?
