Question about Dell 922 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Printer reads cover open

The printer display screen reads cover open. I tried to turn the printer off and turn it back on but it won't power off. I unplug it and then plug it back in and it stills reads cover open. I am not sure what cover it is referring to because the cover is not open. After Fixing form feed (by turning printer upside down&shaking untill all rattling stopped then removing a few alien objects) I had to replace dried out ink cartridges. Then I had cover open message. I then heard a new rattle and shook out a black plastic arm/switch thingy. It is 1-1/8" long by 1/4" wide by 3/8" high on deepest point. I released the cover at hinge side catches so it would open fully. I can see a small port on the upper cover with a spring exposed. The arm thingy is a good fit but I can't figure how to snap it back in. Part appears to have no broken edges. How/where can I reinstall this part?

Could you take a picture of this part and the place that it goes and post it on here so that we can better help you out, otherwise I would go to a printer repair shop that could probably pop it in within minutes. If you want an address/phone number of a repair shop, just give me your city and state or country and I can assist further but there is no diagram for this printer online and I don't own one so if you can put a couple of pictures online or wish to take it to a shop, please let me know, thank you

My Dell 3115cn printer will not connect to the network (it still works on USB cable), hard to believe it's broken, so can the printer system be reset?


Try turning off the printer and disconnecting power plug from wall. Hold power on button for about a minute. Then replug unit and turn power on - it should then attempt to hook up to your existing network.

If no go, try reinstalling the software that initially came with printer and was used to set up the network

How to clean ink absorber for canon mp237


First of all open the ink cartridge of your printer.
When the ink cartridge would move all the way over, then disconnect the power cord of your printer.
Now pull the frame of rubber from the printer and remove ink pads.
To clean ink pads you may place them in a bowl having warm water and start rubbing and squeezing them to clean it from ink.
After removal of ink, keep the pads separate for dry.
When the pads get dry completely, place them back in rubber frame.
Reinstall the rubber frame in your printer.

Hp laserjet m1522f error 5 turn off and on


Hi, Error 5 is a Scanner error. When turning the printer on, have the lid up so you can watch the scanner movement. Does it move smoothly? It should go through a warm up and you should be able to watch the scanner movement. If there is a problem with the scanner, there isn't a lot you could do except. The service manual says the scanner assembly should be replaced. If it was my printer, I would try to take a closer look at the scanner assembly and check to see if the scanner unit is bound up somewhere, or maybe a drop of 3 in 1 oil on the scanner rails. Let us know what happens.
thanks

Prinnter not printing but showing 'put custom in manual tray'


There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.


Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.

HP printer psc 2210 all in one


Chances are that you didn't lock down the scanner when you moved the unit. You can attempt to open the unit and move the scanner bar manually to reset it. HPs are very difficult beasts when it comes to their power up check out. It must be fully functional...including all cartridges...to work in most cases. Good luck.
