Hi there,

My name is Mike. A couple times a day I go looking around to give some pointers to our clients (you).

Look at it your question from our point of view, this is filed under a printer problem, which printer? who knows? It seems to be a case of rerunning what ever procedure needs to be repeated. Again, no idea which what, why, etc.

We need a little more info.

More is better:

If you are serious about getting an answer, include Make, Model of the product that's misbehaving and what type of product it is.

Describe your problem clearly, concisely and with as much detail as possible.

For future reference:
Often, a problem can be the result of a seemingly unrelated event. It is always a good idea to include a recent history.

Additional information such as what steps have already been taken, has the product ever worked, is it new, etc. can have a bearing on providing the best solution for your particular circumstances.

Remember, you are a key participant in this process. We are not there, you are. We depend on you to be our eyes and ears. We can only respond to what you provide us. Without you, all our talent is worthless. How's that for an ego build?

What you get out of the experience depends on what you put in to it. So help us help you.

It would be also be advantageous in your case to repost your problem so that it is correctly categorized and starts over at the top of the queue. This way it can be directed to someone with expertise in the area you need. They may have the manual memorized. Who knows?

Best regards

Mike

I just put a new cartridge in my Lexmark Z730. It wants to align the cartridge, then says theres a paper jam (when there is not). I turn it off and back on. The paper jam error is gone but now its having...


These problems could be due to the new cartridge in the printer. Try to insert a different known working cartridge, like your previous cartridge, to check if the new one is faulty. Also, make sure the USB cable is properly connected into the printer and to your computer.

I HAVE A CANON PIXMA MP830 INK JET PRINTER WHICH HAS A PAPER JAM CAN YOU HELP


Hi,

Here are the basic steps that can resolve your issue.

- Paper jam in the Paper feeder or in the output slot
pull out the paper slowly, if the paper tears open the printer cover(scanning unit) and remove the paper (careful not to touch any printer components) after removing the paper restart the printer, then redo the printing process.

-Paper jam inside the machine
Open the rear cover, if you seen the paper remove it, then close the back cover then restart the printer and redo the printing process, if your unable to get the paper from the rear cover, open the casette infront of the printer and slowly pull out the paper, return the casette and restart the machine..

If your still unable to get the paper,
remove the casette, stand the machine with the left side on the buttom (make sure its not the right side) pull out the paper while pulling the green cover toward you, return the casette, restart the machine and redo the printing.

If your having difficulties or still unable to remove the paper contact the canon support center in your area.

Here is a link where you can see visual step by step procedures.

I hope this will help you a lot.

Thank you for choosing fixya.

Hp 5150 only prints e-mail. When I try to print from Word, a sheet of paper goes into the printer, stops and then I get an message that the printer is out of paper. I have powered down many, many times,...


I had installed a new black print cartridge just before these problems happened. On this HP, when a new cartridge is installed, the printer must go through an alignment procedure and produce a printout in the process. For some reason I did not let the printer do this and that scrambled it's little electronic brains. The troubleshooting section of the printer's documentation recommends not only turning off the printer but unplugging it from its power source as well. Once that was done, the printer went through its alignment function, printed out the obligatory sheet and we were back to normal operations.

Lesson learned - when powering down, always unplug the printer as well as turning it off.

HP 5510: "Press OK to print Align Page" appears permanently, even after performing the alignment. Fixya advised removing power to reset the printer, but that doesn't help. I removed and reinserted ink...


Hi,

To simply bypass alignment, do the following:
Press and hold the Setup button.
Press the Up Arrow button. The printer should be ready to print.
If print quality is unacceptable after bypassing alignment, troubleshoot the problem as follows:
Make sure the printer is loaded with clean, unused, white paper. If the paper is not feeding properly, check the paper path. Click here to see how.
Remove and inspect the cartridges. Click here for instructions. If the cartridges are new, make sure the protective tape covering the nozzles has been removed.
Reinsert the cartridges into the printer. Press Enter to align the cartridges again if prompted.
If the problem continues, check the cartridge ink levels. Click here to see how. Both cartridges must have ink in them for successful alignment, so replace empty cartridges.
Watch the area inside the front of the printer as the alignment procedure runs. You should see a blue light below the cartridges as they move back and forth. If you do not see the blue light, click the link at the top of this page to contact HP. The printer needs to be serviced.
Compare the alignment page produced by the printer to the illustration below. If any of the colors are missing, run the Clean Print Cartridges utility. Click here for instructions.
Abbildung 1: Alignment page

If the problem continues, clean the contacts. Click here to see how.
If none of the steps above solve the problem, replace the cartridges or have the printer serviced. Click here to see how to decide whether to replace the cartridges or service the printer.

Let us know if that was helpful,

Thanks

Shiv.

New cartridges - printer not printing


Align your cartridges to solve print quality problems such as: • Characters are not properly formed or are not aligned at the left margin. • Vertical, straight lines are wavy. 1 Load paper in the paper support. 2 On the control panel, press Copy. 3 Press Options until Maintenance appears. 4 Press the right arrow until Align Cartridges appears, and then press Select. An alignment page prints. Once this page prints, your automatic alignment is complete.
Please rate this solution.thanks and good luck.

HP Business Inkjet 1200 printer always prints the Alignment Page


Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Need 2 calibrate my hp 1210 printer


Hi *s*

(bottom left corner windows START)
got to;
start/settings/printers/ and click

right click your printer and select printing preferences
click on the tab that says SERVICES
then click on the services icon button (picture)

you will see three choices;
align,
clean
print a test page.

Aligning is what you want.(calibration is just a different word)

You can also remove the ink cartridges as you usually do and then put them back in, this triggers and automatic printed page and then walks you through scanning and the alignment.*s*

if by chance you still have blurry printing and know your machine should be ok, try cleaning.( same procedure, different last choice- you clean the heads)

You can also check to see if the proper paper is selected. For instance, if you are trying to print heavy greeting card paper it must be set to that or it will not print properly. *s*

If you have thrown up your hands and tried all this, and nothing works. Go through your printer preferences and select SET DEFAULT SETTINGS buttons.
It will knock everything back to the way it left the factory *S*

Thank you and good luck. Please remember to give my answer a rating *S*
