Unable to Init AF - New printer!

Hi

I just bought this printer new - at the startup, the scanning bar would move appr. 5 inches to the right, then back to the left and, get stuck there and makes a loud noise, like it is blocked in this position.

Then the message "Unable to Init AF" shows up in the display. Th eproblem is, that I took the device with me to the Bahamas, so I can´t just carry it back easily for warranty or exchange.

Something you could suggest?

    Hi!

    First I want to thank you for taking the time to look into it and provide me with your well documented answer :-)

    The greetings to The Bahamas have already been delivered ( I am on Eleuthera), unfortunately the problem did not get solved yet...

    I tried your advice, but the cable seems to be well in place and connected. To be absolutely sure, I even unplugged it and put it back into place carefully.

    Unfortunately the problem is still persisiting...hmmm.

    Maybe there is any other approach to this?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Johnny

Sure (this advice costs you some greetings from me to the beloved bahamas ;-))

you have to open the scanner as you have done to connect the usb cable. When opened you can see a "z" like small cover going from panel to the right rear side.
Open this cover which hides the flat cable of the scanner. The cable needs reconnecting to the main board. Simply stick it carefully into the right positon.

(will post a picture later)

HP Photosmart C3180 carriage permanently stuck on right. How to fix this?


Hi,

If the carriage totally stuck on the right side of the printer, Unplug the printer from Power outlet.

Open the front access door. You will see the cartridges. Remove the cartridges. Check for any paper stuck in the Carriage Rod. Try to manually move the carriage 5-6 times left to right and it should move without any trouble. Put the cartridges back into the Cartridge slot and power on the printer

If the Carriage does not move manually, there could be chances the printer needs mechanical repair as its broken.

Regards,
Sean

Loud ratchet noise


Have you been using ink cartridges other than store bought? Reason I'm asking is that i used a refill kit, and tried those half price refill places, only to find ink was leaking out when not in use & clogged up the ends where the cartridge moves across. take a flashlight & look at the ends of the track that the cartridges slide across on, you may see a build up of ink, that won't allow the cartridge to travel as far as it needs to go to run properly.

Lexmark x7350 Still under warranty does not fax, scan or copy anymore


Definitely sounds like the scan bar or some related hardware is bad. I would call Lexmark tech support at 1-800-332-4120 and ask them if it is still under warranty and if it's covered by warranty. Hope you registered the product when you first bought it.

Clicking nosie from scanner bed on epson cx5800f


I had a similar problem, the scanner bar was stuck to the far left side. Here's how I fixed it:

1)Unplug the printer, disconnect any cables/phone lines to it.
2)Lift up the entire scanner bed housing(you will see the printer ink cartridges).
3)Locate the access patch (approx 1 cm x 1 cm square) along the left edge of the scanner bed housing(this is the side that closes in, next to the keypad buttons).
4)Using a small knife blade, peel off the patch from the corners and edges(it's sticky. Save it, you can stick it back over the hole when you're done).
5)Stick a pen through the access hole, and push the scanner bar to the right, approximately 2-3 inches.
6)Now, close the scanner housing, plug in the printer, and power it on.

It should reset and re-calibrate the scanner bar. If it doesn't, repeat steps 5) and 6) a couple times, until the printer correctly performs calibration. Then, you can put the sticky patch back over the hole, and you're ready to go. Hope this helps!

Are you saying that when physically looking at the scanner light bar, that the light bar is cocked at an angle? Where exactly is it stuck? left side, middle, right side of the glass (when facing the unit)? ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
