Question about HP DeskJet 6122 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Cartridfes wont run across printer

Hi,

The thin caterpillar tread that guides the cartridges seems to be wearing out. It's waning at one point. Using my hand I can make the catridges move from one end to another, but when I turn the power it makes a grinding noise and there is no movement.

Is this game over?

Prints faint and cuts of the top and bottom of some lines


The ink in the cartridges has dried up. Replace them.

Tip

Laser printer has dark cast to entire page, prints ok.


You notice that the copies you print have a dark shadow across the entire page but otherwise seems to print fine.

You have a problem with the toner cartridge.

Toner copier/printers print by transfering toner to a drum using electrostatic electricity and depositing it on the paper. Once on the paper it is set using a heating element or fuser.

Over time the brush which contains the toner in the cartridge and the scraper which scrapes off any excess toner, or toner which is left on the drum, wears and allows extra toner to remain on the drum, which gives the dark shading I mentioned.

To compound the problem these days the cartridges are recycled and obviously at some point the scraper will wear out and you may be the unlucky person who purchased the unit. If that is the case I suggest returning the unit to the store of purchase and exchanging it or getting your money back. Most reputable stores do not have a problem doing this.

New cartridges would run out of toner prior to this problem developing. They have been designed to last slightly longer than the amount of toner which is in them. When recycled and refilled the problems start.

Recycled and refilled cartridges are not always marked as such so there is no way to tell if yours is a recycled unit.

Another problem these days is the drums are being made out of plastic instead of metal. They wear faster and die sooner and cannot be recycled successfully as often. Once they have a scratch they will never print a nice copy again.

If yours is plastic that is probably the problem. No matter which problem you have, worn scraper or plastic worn out toner cartridge, the solution is the same.

You need to purchase and install a new toner cartridge.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

Tire change


Hey Dave. If you look at your tires, between the treads there are little raised tread wear indicators. When the tread wears down far enough to make those indicators touch the road it is about time. The exception this is the Metzler Z6, the tread wear indicators are really tough to find on those. You will find that mileage will vary greatly. I seem to get about 3000 miles out of Sport tires and was only getting abut 4000 or so out of sport touring tires. Some guys here seem to get double that or more. I think that mileage will be dictated by terrain you ride, the pavement type (very course here) and your right hand.

I'm new and I see peeps changing their tires on this forum around 5000 miles or so . Maybe a stupid question but how do you tell? Obviously if you don't ride much and have some dry rot goin' on would be definitely a good time to change.

Print cartridge Carriage Jam how do I fix?


Sometimes this is simply an unseated ink cartridge, or a dirty cartridge guide. Check for both of these. Use a lent free cloth to wipe the cartridge guide - its generally a thin transparent plastic that runs along the cartridge track.

Small thin film fell out


Try to cut off a thin plastic strip. just try to copy that. it basically guides the cartridge on where to print. also i remember that it should have a spring connected to the holes.
