Question about Lexmark P4350 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Carrier jam I get an error message to clear carrier jam - but it isn't jammed. When I try to print something the carrier zooms accross from the right, smashes into the left hand side hard enough to move the wole printer. then it zooms across to the right again crashing into the side with a loud bang. When I open the cover the cartiridge carrier does not come out into the middle - I have to pull it out to check the cartridges. I can't print anything.

Your encoder strip(a transprent strip behind the carriage) is either broken or loosed up and so it is not able to get self aligned.kindly fit the encoder properly or change the encoder if neccessary.encoders are usually very cheap.wish u luck!!

Error 6400 ink cartridges wont track accross


The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam. Some where in the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 code. As a Canon tech, I usually find the code, almost 90% of the time, is related to the purge unit being jammed with something and not being able to move. Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like. And yes I have found all those things in a purge unit. The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs replacement. A Pixma MP830 would still be under Canon warranty, get it into a shop and save yourself the hassel.
Incidently, the 6A00 error pertains to all Canon printers made in the last several years, its not just used in one model. And its always a paper path error or purge unit.
I forget myself so here goes, the purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, lexmark, and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing. That is why you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it. It also has a an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

Lexmark P6250 not working.


What seems to be happennig is the home position sensor has an error.
Look at the back of the cartridge folder and you should see a piece of mylar.It may be missing or it has ink or grease on it.
if it is grease take a isopropry pad and wipe it down very carefully.
If not look for a piece of clear mylar appr.11 inches long by 5/16 in. and re-attach

My Canon i 560 s will not print and this is the error message, I followed instructions, no change, won't print, yellow light flashes ,"Operator error. Press the printer's RESUME button. If this doesn't...


Turn off your PC, turn off the printer. Open the printer and check for paper jams, push/pull the ink cartridge carrier left to right to ensure it also isn't jammed.

Only use a small amount of paper (10 sheets). Too much paper can sometimes block the feeder

Turn everything back on, try again.

Carrier jam


From what you are saying you are getting 'clear carrier jam' because of a misalignment. The jam error message is a generic message that applies to a multitude of things. The carrier while is in right, might not be sitting right. A piece of plastic that holds the carrier might be broken or the printhead might be messed up. Anything that causes it to not sit the way it wants will cause that error message.

Error 1203 and carrier jam error


Error 1203 on a Lexmark is an issue that occurs either when a cartridge is bad or the printer cartridge Slot is bad... I would suggest you to try cleaning the copper contacts of the both carts and cart slot in the printer and try again..

If that doesn't work just call up their support number and check for replacement..

Dell 942 carrier jam


This morning I replaced the cartridges in the Dell 942 printer, they jammed to the left which made a loud grinding noise and the cartridge jam error came on.

I solved the problem by turning the printer on with the top up which moved the cartridges to the right a little so I could reach back, push one down a little manually which freed them to move over to the middle.

Carrier jam Lexmark 4300


I had this same problem, I found a long skinny thin plastic strip had fallen off & caused the problem for me. The plastic strip has slits at each side to attach to the inside back of printer, on the left side is a down ward facing arrow, the plastic strip feeds through the back middle of the cartridge carrier and then the slits are to be inserted to the metal tab like pieces on the back sides inside the printer on the right side (facing printer) it will look like a small rectangular hole with a longer metal tab like piece sticking out & on the left is a smaller squared like hole with a flat smaller metal like tab which will line up if the plastic strip is feed through the back of the cartridge carrier properly. This should allow the cartridge carrier to glide properly & work as it should, with no more banging! Sorry my tech. terminology isn't good, I am not Knowelegable with this sort of thing, just sharing my experience :) HTH!

Dell 944 All-in-One Printer - printhead carrier jam


I just found that one of the little feeder rollers (??) on the roller bar has jumped out and is sitting (still attached by its spring) on top of the roller bar. I reckon that's curtains for the printer. Am I right or is it repairable?
