Another Alignment Question

I now have read your answers to three previous alignment issues and am interested in your "easy fix" of the sensor.  In my case, the alignment process does not even begin to print, as far as I can tell.  Then it fails with a "Paper too narrow" error.  Of course, the paper is correct, so this makes me suspicious of the sensor rather than the cartridges.  Is there a specific test I can do to check the sensor?

    It seem to bee something like a sensor problem. The 6110 does not accept any kind of paper when trying to copy. (when you print, it's OK).

"paper too narrow" error is usually the spot sensor.

Cartridges wont align


Could be one of two things....

1 - as the person has already posted, you may have bad cartridges...when the machine does an alignment it looks for specific marks on the paper...ie..green check marks before each line etc...if the correct marks are not there you will get an alignment failure...if the green check marks are there etc then you have a different problem...

2- spot sensor on the side of carriage is not working...this is the little blue/green light that comes on during alignment. Its what reads the markings on paper so if the markings are correctly there and you still get this error then the spot sensor needs to be replaced. Simple fix that u can do. We sell the spot sensor for $15

Change cartridge (color first) before doing anything.

Align cartriges message continuously displayed


Here's the deal with the cartridge alignment page....the machine will spit out a series of black lines mixed with yellow ink and at the beginning of each of these lines is a "Green" check mark. The carriage moves back and forth over these lines and green check marks and reads them by use of what is called a "spot sensor" that resides on the right side of the carriage assembly. This is usually noticed by the blue ray of light that shines out of it. So if you are getting an alignment failure one of two things is happening....1)You've have got a bad cartridge (usually the color) and it is not laying down the right colors, specifically the green check mark or 2)You've got a bad spot sensor...even though it may still be shining the blue light, the sensor board can't process the information. Its an easy fix either way.
