Make sure the printer is on. Open the cover. The cartridge carrier should automatically move to the center for the loading position. Replace the cartridges then close the cover.
In some cases, the ink cartridge carrier won't position itself in the middle even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Just unplug the printer from the power source. With the cover open, hold the white tape in the middle inside the printer. The other end of it is connected to the carrier. Gently slide the carrier to the center. Load the cartridges. Close the cover. Plug the printer back to power source. Thanks.

Hi Anonymous,
I suspect you should have this problem sorted by now.
Looking at the Xerox website says that a replacement printer is available for around £190 that could have worked out cheaper that trying to get this one repaired.

Good Luck.

My pinter's usb connection does not have a cartridge, how can i remove the cartirdge ?


You dont need to have USB or wireless connection to remove cartridge. Turn the printer off and on. Open the front access door. The Carriage ( that holds the cartridges ) will move to center and you can remove it.

If you are unable to remove the cartridge when the printer is on, Turn if off, Open the Carriage access door and move the carriage manually and remove it.

Regards,
Sean

Hi I have Brother dcp 350 printer. I have the error 46 unable to print/clean i cant get the printer back to normal functions. I have change the inks (all) and I am still get the same error message 46....


The messages unable to print, unable to clean, unable 36, error 46 and error 32 are all print head errors.

1. Remove all the ink cartridges from the machine
2. Clean the contacts on the cartridges as well as inside the machine itself with a small amount of warm water or alcohol on a cotton swab until no ink comes off on the swab.

Note: if any of the other cartridges are low, empty, leaking or bulging replace them

3. Then turn off the machine and unplug it for 70 seconds
4. Plug it back it and wait for the insert cartridges message
5. Insert the cartridges and check to see if the problem is still there. If it is it means the print head has failed and in order to fix this the print head inside the printer needs to be replaced. The print head is the part of the printer that puts ink from the cartridges onto the page

Unfortunately this can sometimes cost more to replace then the machine itself.

Insert left cartridge error message. Replaced. Still an issue. My printer makes a noise - like it is trying to clear itself. Both Cartridges have been replaced. I have even unplugged the unit and it...


On the control panel of the printer -

Press the Setup Button
Scroll till you find Tools Options - Press OK
Look for Printer Alignment - Press OK

IF the alignment goes thru well, your printer will be able to print/scan/copy.

If it still makes grinding noise or makes unusual noise, Turn off the printer and open the rear access door. Clean the rollers with lint free cloth. Close the door. Open the front access door and check if the carriage moves freely ( cartridge holder ) and check for any obstruction.

If you tried the above steps and still unable to make the printer work, it could be hardware failure.

Ron

I get the alert "no printer cartridge" when there is a cartridge


Hi,
  1. Open the printer top access door. The printer carriage will move to the center.
  2. Remove the USB cable from the back of the printer.
Remove the print cartridges from the printer.
  • Unplug the power cord. (Do not press the Power button to turn off the printer.)
  • Verify that the correct cartridge is being used for the printer. Cartridge reference can be found in the User Guide.
  • Verify that the protective plastic tape has been removed from the print cartridge
  • Locate the copper circuit strip on the back of the cartridge.
  • Clean the copper circuit strip with a dry foam-rubber swab or a lint-free cloth.
  • Reconnect the power cord to the printer.
  • Turn on the printer if it does not turn on automatically.
  • Insert the print cartridge into the cradle at a slight upward angle until a resistance is fallen. Firmly push the print cartridge into the cradle. A snapping sound will be heard when the print cartridge is correctly positioned. The print cartridge fits securely in its cradle.
  • Close the top access door. The printer carriage should move to the left.
  • If the printer light is on steady, perform a self test report as follows:
    1. Press and hold the Power button, and then open and close the top cover four times.
    2. Release the Power button.
  • If the printer light continues to blink, replace the print cartridge or cartridges one at a time
  • Print cartridge recognition error messages are displayed if the printer is unable to communicate with the cartridge(s). A faulty cartridge or dirty contacts on the cartridge may cause this.

    Unable to load new cartrige in my hp 5150 printer


    Open the unit to where you would normally access the printer cartridges. Unplug and after a minute replug the power cord. Printers are designed so that when the unit is open it stops at the middle so you can access the printer cartridges. Here is the manual for the 5150. There is a link on the left of the screen to give visual directions for replacing the cartridges.

    HP DESKJET 1180C


    HP Deskjet 1180c and1220c Professional Series Printer and HP Deskjet 9300 and 1280 Printer - Troubleshooting a Blinking Print Cartridge Light Introduction The Print Cartridge light continues to blink with both cartridges properly installed and the Access Cover (also known as the top cover or lid) closed. Instructions The blinking Print Cartridge light may be caused by a faulty cartridge, the plastic case of the printer being dislodged or slightly out of position (which prevents the Access Cover from seating properly), the Access Cover sensor (also known as the top cover sensor or lid sensor), or by the actuator on the Access Cover. Follow the steps below to resolve the issue.
    1. With the printer turned on, open the Access Cover. The carriage will move out of the capping station and stop at one of the cartridge status icons located inside the printer under the Access Cover. The yellow arrow on top of the carriage will point to one of the cartridge status icons to indicate a good, empty, or faulty cartridge. See Figure 1 below.
      1. If the carriage stops in the cartridge’s OK position, indicated by the happy face in Figure 1, continue with Step 2.
      2. If a problem is indicated with one of the cartridges, remove the cartridge and verify that the cartridge part number is correct. The black cartridge part number is 51645A and the color cartridge part number is C6578A or C6578D.
      3. If the cartridge part number is correct, clean the electrical contacts on the cartridge with a soft, lint-free cloth. Do not touch or wipe the nozzle plate.
      4. If a faulty cartridge is still indicated after verifying the cartridge part number and cleaning the contacts on the cartridge, replace the cartridge.
      5. After replacing the cartridge, turn off and then turn on the printer to clear the cartridge error from the printer's memory. If the cartridge error cannot be cleared, the printer will require repair. If the carriage stops in the cartridge’s OK position, indicated by the happy-face in Figure 1, continue with Step 2. NOTE: The printer checks the status of both print cartridges before printing. Both the black and color cartridge must be functional and installed in the printer in order to print.
      Figure 1: Cartridge status icons c00001225.jpg Icon/Drawing Problem identified by the symbol Solution c00001226.jpg The color cartridge is missing, improperly installed, defective, or the wrong print cartridge is installed. 1. If there is no color cartridge in the cartridge cradle, insert a color cartridge.

      2. If there is a color cartridge in the cradle, remove the color cartridge and firmly reinsert it.

      3. Check to make sure the color cartridge is appropriate for the printer.

      4. If the problem persists, replace the color cartridge. c00001227.jpg The black cartridge is missing, improperly installed, the wrong print cartridge, or is defective. 1. If there is no black cartridge in the cartridge cradle, insert a black cartridge.

      2. If there is a black cartridge in the cradle, remove the black cartridge and firmly reinsert it.

      3. Check to make sure the black cartridge is appropriate for the printer.

      4. If the problem persists, replace the black cartridge. c00001228.jpg The color print cartridge is running low on ink. Replace the color print cartridge with a new color print cartridge. c00001229.jpg The black print cartridge is running low on ink. Replace the black print cartridge with a new black print cartridge. c00001230.jpg None. The print cartridges are working correctly. None. The print cartridges are working correctly.
    2. Close the Access Cover and wait for the printer to initialize. If the Print Cartridge light is still blinking, remove the Access Cover by following the steps below:
      1. Open the Access Cover and hold it open.
      2. Dislodge the Access Cover from the hinges with a sharp blow to the hinge area of the Access Cover and then remove the Access Cover.
    3. Install the Access Cover by following the steps below:
      1. Align the hinges on the Access Cover with the hinge pins on the printer.
      2. Push down firmly on the Access Cover until the hinges snap into position.
    4. Close the top cover and wait for the printer to initialize. If the Print Cartridge light is still blinking, the printer case may be dislodged or slightly out of position. To restore the printer case to the proper position, squeeze the printer by applying pressure to the front and back pressure points shown in Figure 2. Figure 2: Pressure points c00006497.jpg Firmly squeeze the pressure points on the printer case as shown in Figure 3. If the Print Cartridge light continues to blink, continue with step 5. Figure 3: Squeezing the pressure points c00006498.jpg
    5. If the Print Cartridge light is still blinking, push down firmly on the center of the Access Cover (the extra pressure may engage the sensor). If the Print Cartridge light quits blinking, remove the pressure from the Access Cover to see if the Print Cartridge light starts blinking again. Re-apply the pressure to the center of the Access Cover to see if the Print Cartridge light stops blinking again.
      1. If the Print Cartridge light quits blinking with pressure applied, the Access Cover is faulty and should be replaced.
      2. If the Print Cartridge light continues to blink even with pressure applied, the Access Cover sensor may be faulty and the printer will require repair.
