This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly or a defective clutch in the take-up spool and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Seal tape from toner cartridge tore


prining invoices to letterhead, your laser printer is an integral part of your company's computer system. The device's ink is stored in one or more toner cartridges that are replaceable - a single black cartridge, if you have a laser printer that only prints black, or three color cartridges along with a black cartridge if the laser printer prints both color and black. The cartridges are available at office supply, retail and warehouse stores. Like inkjet cartridges, toner cartridges contain a strip of sealing tape that keeps the powder ink from spilling out until you are ready to install the cartridge.

1Remove the toner cartridge from its packaging, if the cartridge is still in its box, and shake the cartridge from side to side to evenly distribute its toner.

2Hold the cartridge away from your body so ink won't spill onto your clothes or shoes. Grab the cartridge's sealing tape on the side of the cartridge and pull the tape firmly away from the cartridge. The sealing tape contains a plastic end piece for grasping it, usually in a different color than the toner cartridge.

3Continue pulling the sealing tape until it is completely out of the cartridge. Place the cartridge close to your printer or on a surface nearby until you are ready to install it. Dispose of the sealing tape in a trashcan or bag; try not to get any toner present on the tape on your hands or clothing.

Printer (HP5650) has full ink cartridges.window sez almost empty


That is normal, the printer "sees" the cartridges by their serial number, so when you pop in a refilled cartridge, the printer thinks you have put in old cartridges and continue to show low ink level. When you pop in a new one, with a new serial code, the ink level will reset, showing that the cartridges are full again.
You can try this:
1. Open printer lid so cartridges move to center of carriage.
2. Lift clamp and remove black or color cartridge from the holder.
3. Place cartridge on table with copper contact strip facing you.
4. Carefully place a strip of clear plastic tape over the four contacts on the upper left corner of the cartridge.
5. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position.
6. Open lid and remove cartridge again. Remove tape from left side and place tape over four contacts at upper right corner of cartridge.
7. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position again.
8. Open lid again, remove cartridge, remove tape.
9. Reinstall cartridge and close lid.
Printer will now recalibrate. Once the process is complete the ink level meter should be reading full again.
Doesn't always work, but you can try.

Don't know how to move the cartridges to replace the ink.


Please follow the instructions below to ensure correct installation:
  1. Lower the printer's output tray and open the top cover.
  2. Connect the power cable to the printer.

And switch on the printer.

The print heads will now move to the replacement position. If they do not move to a change position press the Red ink button on the printer.

  • Lift up the ink cartridge clamps.

  • 41c16be.jpg
    090c659.jpg

    Before you open the new ink cartridge package, shake it four or five times. Then remove it from the package.

    6e11c23.jpg

    Do not touch the green chip
    on the side of the cartridge. This can damage the ink cartridge.

    157f94d.jpg
    Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the ink cartridge.

    3400723.jpg
    You must remove the yellow tape from the cartridge before installing it; otherwise, print quality may decline or you may not be able to print.

    If you have installed an ink cartridge without removing the yellow tape, take the cartridge out of the product remove the yellow tape, and then reinstall it.

    Do not remove the transparent seal from the bottom of the cartridge or the label on the cartridge; otherwise the cartridge may become unusable or ink will leak.

    bbca8a8.jpg
    Place the ink cartridge into the cartridge holder with the bottom down. Then push down the ink cartridge until it clicks into place.
    38585f1.jpg
    Repeat steps 4 to 6 for each ink cartridge.


  • Close the ink cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into place
  • 5ee2013.jpg
      If you find it difficult to close the cartridge cover, make sure all the cartridges are firmly seated. Press down on each cartridge until you hear it click into place. Do not attempt to force the cover closed.

    1. Close the printer cover and press the ink or start button to begin charging the system. Charging can take up to three minutes and is complete when the power light stops flashing.
    While the ink system is charging do not switch off the printer.
