Its really a serious issue my friend... nothing can be done without opening the external cover.... the belt will never move out of the cogs, if it went off then it says that something has broken inside...
i once tried to fix my dot matrix printer by myself, but when i opened i saw 100s of small components...i got messed up with them but any how i manged to fix it back...
as yours is an all-in-one, i dont recommend you to service it by yourself... because i am very sure you will not get the printer spares any where in stores....as this model is one of the costliest product of canon its better to take it to an authorized service center of canon and fix the issue....

Gaggia titanium inside cog won't line up with brew units cog, the brew units is in the correct possision. Machine comes on some one said I need a new ct board


If you've had the back off it may be this.....there are two grey plastic prongs sticking out of the back of the casing, when you've put it back on they haven't gone into the two lugs that are on the back of the cog, this affects the two cogs lining up.you may have to pull the cog up a little to line them up when you put the back on, the cogs should line up again as long as the prongs have gone into the lugs. Hope this this helps.

Not printing


Lift the Flat Bed Scanner up so that you can find the Cartridges Inside.
Remove the Cartridges from the Printer.
Move the Cartridge Carrier Back and Forth as fast as you can!
Replace the Cartridges back to the Printer!

Good Luck!!!!

Dell 1720DN is jamming every other page. Tried to clean the printer; however, issue still occurring.


Is there a clicking noise accompanying this problem? We had this problem and solved it by opening the panel on the left hand side and removing the cover on the cogs. The issue was a screw that had become lose and fallen out of the cog which regulates paper feed. it is the only cog with a screw so should be easy to find.

Printer is not printing text


If the printer was unused for a week or 2 the print heads are clogged with dried up ink. You can use the maintainance tab for the printer for cleaning and nozzle check or the program below. I have been using it for several years.

This is a utility to manage your ink. Gives an accurate count of how many ink shot are left in each cartridge. The printer just told me I need a new magenta but this program says I have 13% left. It also has sepparate routines for cleaning the black and color (unfortunately not individual cartridges) and a powerful clean cycle when they are really cogged.

Brother MFC-620CN print head clogged


Open up amd release blue stay at bottom by pressing edges inward and pulling slightly forward. Remove the 4 screws, 2 small plastic covers and the earth screw. Pull out the ribbon connector near the USB plug. Unplug the 2 white and one red connectors, noting how the cables fit in. Fully open the lid and pop the scanner part off. Remove all the ink cartridges. Now using a flat screwdriver unclip the top of the base all the way round and lift off. The print head is now accessible. Rotate the white paper feed cogs to release the print head. Slide it all the way to the right and remove it by tilting the back edge upwards. You mow have access to the print head!!!!

Blinking lights on Lexmark Z12 printer


Unfortunately, the Lexmark website is set up so I can't provide you with direct links to the workaround for these problems....
Go here: http://support.lexmark.com/perl/support/support.cgi
Do a search on "blinking flashing lights + Z12"
and try to follow the steps outlined in the troubleshooting guides that calls up.
This is the most likely candidate, but there are others that could cause this symptom:

Lights Flashing on the Printer ID: 241
Test the cartridges one by one and do the printer hardware test (refer to the relevant document for your printer) to establish which one is defective. The defective cartridge needs to be changed.

If the power light on the printer is blinking, you may have a carrier stall. To check this:
First unplug the printer.
Move the cartridges to the left by hand. In order to do this, you need to grip the top of the carrier belt (a black/grey belt with cog-like teeth) and pull it towards the right-hand side of the printer.
Once the cartridges have been moved across, you can clip them out.
Try to print without the cartridges in the carrier.
If you no longer have a carrier stall, put the cartridges back into the carrier and clip them into place.
I hope one of these options will provide you with the solution to your problem. If not, please write back with a report of what you tried and we will try to help you further.


If I have managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this posting....thanks!

puchase a new ribbon cassette (widely available on the internet)when it arrives, lift the printer cover,remove the old cassette (just lifts out ) pay particular attention to where the little piece of exposed ribbon slots into. locate the small exposed piece of ribbon on the new cassette into the slot carefully then click the cassette over the drive cogs (just like playing an old topload video cassette)

Toner Light


Hi.
Its nearly what the last post states,
I have had brother help desk on the phone recently due to this problem. If you get a toner cartridge that has no numbers on it, ( brother orginal parts have huge numbers stamped on the case) then the cartridge needs resetting, this is done by simply pushing the white lever on left handside about 40 degrees forwards, its stiff so give it a proper hard shove. No srews etc to undo.
Hey presto your light will go out.

Cheers

AEG LAVAMAT 74620 Update Gears on the fill tray have jumped. The primary and idler have to be installed correctly and are fool proof but the third, half gear, needs setting. Can you please supply pic or...


Found this on another site (fixed4free.com) posted by Dave in Jan 2009:

This is one of those things where a picture would be worth a thousand words, but as I can't put pictures on this site, the words will have to do!
- Turn the orange cog anti-clockwise as far as it will go, (putting the nozzle to direct the water to the conditioner drawer)
- Look closely at the orange cog and you'll see that the last-but-one tooth at each end of the row is shorter than the rest. Looking from above and standing at the front of the machine, I call the rightmost tooth on this cog number 1, the short tooth number 2 etc. (my cog has 17 teeth)
- Position the white cog so that (looking from above) the leftmost tooth on the top (incomplete) row of this cog is between teeth 2 and 3 of the orange cog. This should be such that if the white cog rotates anti-clockwise it will turn the orange cog.
Now the difficult bit:
- The shaft that the yellow cog fits on has four vertical 'webs' running down it. Look closely and you'll see that one of these is bigger than the other three. As you would expect, if you look carefully at the centre of the yellow cog it has three small slots and one bigger one spaced around the hole.
- This shaft can be VERY CAREFULLY rotated if you pull it gently upwards against it's spring and wiggle it while twisting it. NEVER force it, the cogs underneath are VERY fragile. If it won't turn, just let go, and try again.
- Look again at the white cog, and you'll see that two of the teeth on the lower (complete) set of teeth have no slot between them, they make a tooth that is 'double width'.
- Look at the yellow cog and you'll see that it has a 'double width' slot on it's lower row.
- The challenge is to rotate the yellow cog's shaft so that you can fit the yellow cog on it, aligning the double-width slot on the yellow cog with the big tooth on the white cog. This is just a case of trial and error, but is the key to getting everything back together.

COMPLICATED BIT OF EXPLANATION!!
The yellow cog only ever turns clockwise and the white cog is a clever bit of engineering allowing AEG to move the nozzle (orange cog) backwards and forwards across the five positions.
The yellow cog turns the orange cog anti-clockwise until it runs out of teeth, then the white cog turns the orange cog the other way.
After a full rotation of the yellow cog, the orange one has moved clockwise to the stain-treatment position and the by-pass beyond, then anti-clockwise back to the conditioner position.

Noise


If its the same as mine its a problem with one of your toner cartridges, if you pull them out you will see that on the back of the "barrels" there is a cog. When inserted this cog is turned by another inside the machine. The plastic on the cog on the toner is very weak so sometimes the teeth will get chewed up a bit. it has never caused me a problem with print quality (just really annoying)and i imagine this is your problem. if you are worried about damaging your printer then pull out all of the cartridges to find the offender with the chewed up cog and replace it as i imagine having it isn't healthy but as i say, its never caused any problems other than the noise.
