Why doesn't my HP OfficeJet 7500A carriage move? It is jammed

Try to turn it off, open cover and move carriage a little bit by hand; don't push too hard. For some time it'll get back to life.

Okidata B4600 error message #132 on two printers. What does this error mean. The printers will not go to off line.

Error 132:
LED Head Missing, Color:Magenta

When magenta LED head connection cannot be detected

You should first try to restart the printer.
If that doesn't resolve the problem, the ribbon cable is probably disconnected from the print head.

The led print heads are four assemblies that hang down from the lid of the machine when you open it. Make sure they are properly connected.

I turn on the Pixma mp130. Print head slams to the right side. Display says "CHECK INK TANK" and alarm light blinks. I open the lid. Print head remains on far right. I depress teh closed lid...

It sound like the indicator strip has moved or is damaged.
  1. turn the printer on,
  2. get the cartridges to the middle,
  3. pull the power out.
  4. remove the head from the track and move it manually to its correct position.
  5. Be careful not to damage the plastic indicator strip that runs behind the print head. this strip is used to reference the heads position in the printer.
I hope this Helps Regards GM

There are 2 possible solutions to this problem.

1. Th first is really simple; replace the color ink cartridge.

2. a. The second is that you may lift the lid. Leave the on/off button in the "on" position.
b. Then unplug your machine while it is still in the "on" state.
c. While it is unplugged, lift the gray bar and move the print head to the middle position.
d. Remove the print cartridge head with the cartridges in it, and close the lid.
e. Now plug in your printer.
f. While printer is on, it will tell you that the cartridges are missing.
g. Go ahead and put the cartridges back into the machine and close the lid.

I hope this helps. Good Luck!

Says the cyan ink cartraige is empy but it is new, replaced it with another new one and still says its empty

remove all cartridges and close the lid. Wait for "ink cartridges missing..." error to appear then install all cartridges and close the lid. If the error persists, remove all cartridges then clean the cyan chip and corresponding contacts in the printer with damp cotton bud. Dry well (with dry c/bud) then fit cartridges back in. If still no good, contact HP.

hope this helps

When i turn my printer on error message occurs E-01 printer is a epson sx215

Power off the printer, unplug the power cable.
Lift the scanner lid, check for obstructions that might be blocking the print head.
Close the lid, reconnect the power cable and power on the printer.
If it still says E-01, please contact your local service center or the store where you purchased the printer for your warranty options.

Hello. I have an HP 2610xi. I opened to replace

There is no lock open postion, therefore no release button is provided.
Take the toner out that you just put in, then try to close door gently.
If the door closes ok the problem is with the toner. Check you have removed shipping pull tabs (Usually Orange) on new toner. Next, on one end of the drum shutter there should be a small point which the machine uses to open the shutter when you close the door. If the shutter won't open or the point is missing (Broken off) the printer door witll not close.

Why is this tekronix 860 printer kept flashing error message saying missing upper tray. However, all trays are intact. It looks like a sensor issue

Tektronix printer paper trays, I seem to recall that there's a plastic key that fits on the right side of the paper tray. It's a little plastic piece that just clips in on the right side of the paper tray. Sounds like it's missing
