How to reseat the print head on Dell Photo P703w All-In-One Printer

1. Disconnect the AC power from the printer

2. Lift up on the print head from the lower left corner

3. Gently pull the ribbon cable to move the carrier to the center

Note if the carrier is stuck under the lid and will not move with gentle pressure, then you may need to plug the printer back in before gently pulling the cable.

You should now be able to see the carrier at the top opening of the printer

4. Next remove the ink cartridges


5. Now press down on the center of the print head. You will want to press firmly until you hear an audible click sound.

6. Next test the assembly by trying to lift up on the printhead. If it lifts up, repeat step 5.

If the printhead does not lift up try pushing the carrier to the right.

7. Close the top lid and plug back in AC power

8. Turn the printer on and check to see if the paper jam error is gone.

How to install ink catridge

Turn the printer on.
Lift the lid that covers the print-head mechanism.
Check for any instructions on the inside of the lid.
After a few seconds, the ink-cartridges will slide to a new position.
Unlock the cartridge from its socket, either by moving the lever,
or by pushing-down on the cartridge, and gently lift it out.

Insert the new cartridge. Lock it into the socket.
Run a "print-head" alignment cycle, for optimal colour-printing.

How do i get the ink cartridge out?

Turn the printer on.
Lift the lid.
Look inside the lid -- some printers have "instructions" printed there.
Or, just wait 10 seconds, and the print-head will slide into position.
Push down on the ink-cartridge to "unlock" it from its socket.
Gently remove the ink-cartridge.

Error message 6a80 mx700 printer canon what is this?


Ok, the error code you are getting refers to a paper jam, which the paper is usually torn from the big piece and stuck, you need to have a good lok to find it.
Most probably the paper was ripped inside, and one piece is stuck somewhere on a sensor. Usualy is the purge unit that clean up the print head, and it's located inside on the right side (printhead parking place).

Take a torch, lift up the scanner unit, with the unit ON, wait for the print head to come in the middle, move it to left to make more room, and check the right side, inside the unit.

Kind regards

Printing error

the problem is with the printer. try to examine if the printer head is on the right side. the default must be on the right side. if you can't move the printer head towards the right it means it got stuck up. if you will look inside it you will see a 'rail like' object on the bottom of the printer you can push it down with any pointed object for the pinter head to get back to its original position. if this doesn't solve the problem look for the nearest service center coz the printer needs an alignment.

Canon MP830 print head

If you purchased the printer new, you would have had to install the print head before youput the cartridges in. The print head id he bit the cartridges clip into. So to remove the print head:
Open the cover, take out all five print cartridges and then lift the lever on the left of the print head and remove print head.
Hope this helps!

This is definitely the print head. You will need to purchase a new print head and install this. It is very easy to install all that you need to do is lift the printer lid and extract the ink cartridges. The printhead is the black part under the ink cartridges and on either side of it is a lock and release bar. push these down and out wards to loosen them and then lift the print head out. replace the print head and then you will need to input the print head ID in maintenance mode on the printer. Turn the printer off and hold down the menu/set button and power on. You will here it beep and all the lights flash on the panel. The punch in 68 2580 I think from memory i could be wrong but just look it up if you can get hold of a service many and then enter the new printhead code and 99 to exit. Done Hope this answers your question.
