Can't remove the old cartridge to replace with new one. The black front gate (with the two triangle icons on either end and the spray can in the middle) Is in the way and won't allow the cartrigde to slide out! Green tab has been pressed.

My printer as a message cartridges not engaged. open and close front cover. i have done this but the message keeps appearing and i cannot print. please help.


This printer has a "cartridge interlock" system. When you close the front door there is a plastic linkage that engages the cartridges. If you look on the toners, you see a triangle shaped gear on the right side. That slides into a triangle shaped gear in the printer. If that linkage is broken or not working properly, it will need professional service. You can try to fiddle with that linkage system on the right. Pop the linkage off the front cover and push it in so you can watch to make sure those triangle gears push outwards into the engaged position. Then, you can defeat the front cover switch and watch to see if the 4 toners are moving. Defeat the switch by putting a pencil or something into the flag towards the top right hand side of the front cover. Leave the black transfer belt down. If the 4 toners are turning when the printer tries to initialize, that means your cartridge interlock is working and there is a problem with a sensor on the main drive assembly.

If it needs professional service, you probably should just buy a new printer. The 3600 and 3800 toners are compatible with each other. You could save your old printer for parts. In the future, be very careful when adding or removing toners. The cartridge interlock system is weak and can break if slightly abused. Good luck.
