Hi
The carriage belt is broken or stuck. The replacement is cheap but I've replaced a few of these and it's a difficult tedious job. If you do buy the belt buy the ink collection pads. Good luck

    How much would a replacement cost and where could I buy one from? I have the same trouble with my cx5900.

Hp 7410: Error msg: Remove and check color cartridge. Is this a deathnell for this machine? I cannot seem to get past it even after removing and replacing.


There are several possible issues causing the problem. The color cartridge could be faulty. The contacts on the cartridge and the associated contacts inside the printer may be dirty. Finally, the cartridge chute may be damaged or printer may need service.

You can try a new HP cartridge. Next try cleaning the contacts with distilled (or bottled water) and Q-tips or lint free cloth. With the printer on, open the lid and remove the cartridges when they stop moving. Disconnect the power cord from the printer to stop the machine in the open state. Clean the cartridge contacts and the matching contacts in the machine. Dry the contacts with a new Q-tip or wait 10 minutes before replacing the cartridges. See http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01423559&tmp_task=solveCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&lc=en&product=391194 for pictures. Then close the cover and reconnect power cord. You can repeat the cleaning step if it doesn't solve the problem.

If this doesn't work, look at the cartridge chute area to see if the spring is dislodged or the tab is broken. Again see the link above. In that case, the unit needs service. If it is under warranty, contact HP. Otherwise, decide if it is worth the repair cost.

I hope this helps.

Hi,

The steps below should help you override the error and make the printer accept the cartridges and allow you to print.

Instructions
    • 1

      Remove and replace the print cartridge. If that doesn't solve the error, move on to Step 2.

    • 2

      Remove the print cartridge from the machine.


      • 3

        Wet the end of a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol.

      • 4

        Wipe the copper colored contacts on the print cartridge with the cotton swab to clean.

      • 5

        Wipe the contacts in the printer where the cartridge sits.

      • 6

        Replace the cartridge and try a test print. If removing residue for a clean connection didn't solve the error, move on to step 7.

      • 7

        Turn off the printer.

      • 8

        Unplug the printer from the power source and leave it unplugged for 15 to 30 minutes. This will reset the printer.

      • 9

        Plug the printer back into the power source and turn it on.

      • 10

        Print a test page.

    Alignment problem error message.


    It could be due to cartridges in the printer. Try the steps below to identify and fix the problem:
    1. Make sure the printer is on.
    2. Open the printer cover. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-In-One is busy. Note: If the carrier does not automatically move to the center, turn off the printer or unplug the printer from the power source and then carefully slide the carrier to the center.
    3. Remove both cartridges from the carrier.
    4. Close the printer cover.
    5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in to, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
    6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.
    7. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.
    8. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
    If that doesn't help, try this approach:

    Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


    If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues with your model:

    1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
    2. Go to Programs.
    3. Go to Lexmark 4200 Series folder.
    4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.

    From the Maintenance tab, select Align to fix blurry edges. Your printer will then print a page that will help align the cartridges.

    My printer display says cartridges appear to be missing or damaged


    Either the cartridge is malfunctioning, if you used refilled cartridges this common, or they came unseated. Check to make sure they are seated correctly by removing them and putting them back. If that doesn't work try replacing them with new, not refilled, cartridges and see if that resolves the issue. If it doesn't the problem is a circuit problem that will need to be repaired by a technician.

    Epson C60When I press the ink replacement button, the print head doesn't move to the center. Previously, I had purchased a ink cartridge that turned out to be too large, so I took the ink cartridge...


    Unplug the printer from computer, then Unplug the printer from wall when the carriage is all the way to the left, then manually slide it to the area where you can open the ink cartridges, pull all ink cartridges out, close cover and turn printer on. Printer should now be acting as it should.

    Color cartridge is not printing in color


    Hi, According to your problem first check and make sure that the color cartridges are not blank and also make sure that the cartridges are moving properly. First clean the cartridge head and align them. Check the printer settings also. some time it may happens after two or three times refilling. in that case you have to replace the cartridges. IF the before job doesn't solve your problem then replace the cartridges.

    Will not print. Moved computer from one room to another. Was printing fine before moving. Says that the ink cartridge is in the wrong place. Almost new cartridges. I have removed them replaced them....


    Try to wipe the cartridge nozzles with a slightly moistened soft cloth to clean it from dirt and possible clogs. If that doesn't help, try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.
