My canon pixma MX320 reads document in ADF how do I get rid of this to be able to use my printer?


Please check on the ADF section if there is a jammed paper and remove it. ADF stands for Automatic Document Feeder, it is where you put the paper for faxing.

It is also better to check the paper sensor on the ADF section and see if it return back to its normal position. Open the cover of the ADF section, you will find a white plastic that click when your press down and lifted up back when release. This is the paper feed sensor. If this do not return to normal position, you will need to have it replaced by a certified printer technician.

Removing the power cord at the back and leaving it for at least 30 minutes will sometimes do the trick of removing the error on your printer.

Hp laserjet 6l pulling more paper through than it should. new roller not available?

Thanks to Dewaine Chan for providing these instructions on how to get at the separation pad

1). Open the printer cover and remove the Toner cartridge. Remove the two silver screws at the top of the printer (One on each side).
2). Remove the three screws holding the Back cover piece. Pull the back Paper Guide in the Up position. Use a small flat head screw driver to loose to two latches through the opening. After that, you will need to use the same screw driver to loose the latches holding the back cover in place. There are at least two at each side.
3). Remove the back cover after you have released all the latches.

4). Turn the printer over and remove the memory slot cover by press on the latch.

5). Open the front cover. There are two latches (one at each corner) at the front bottom. You need to gently release them. After that, you should be able to slide the cover upward and off.

6). At the right side toward the top, you will see a spring clip pushing a white latch in place. Use the needle nose to remove it.

7). Use the needle nose to slightly pull the white color latch and turn it counter clock wise to release it. Please note how it is put in place. Pull it out after you have unlatched it.

8). Move to the left side. Press on the two latches to remove the Clutch gear assembly and slide it out. Please note this assembly has two unequal slots.

9). Now you have freed up the Pick Up roller assembly, you need to slide this assembly out from the right side first. Fiddle with it a bit to get it out.

10). Pull the paper guide up upward to remove it.

11). Push on the Kick plate to release it and then swing it upward to slide it out be careful not to loose the spring.

12). Unlatch the separation pad clip from the back and lift it up.

13). Unlatch the Separation Pad and get it up to remove it. Replace it with the new one.

14). Use a small flathead screw driver to remove the two sub pads and replace them with new one.

15). Do everything in reverse order.

I read an on another post to use cork gasket material and double sided tape to replace the pad, and this worked great. You can buy a roll at autozone for about $6. I didn’t do the small pads, that is optional.

Signal bulb on 2003 buick regal

To change front turn signal –
open the hood; look in back of headlight; two white clips; pull straight up, and then whole headlight comes out including turn signal; it is all one unit; remove rubber cover, then you take bulb out of unit. Mechanism that bulb fits in will need to be turned clockwise (looking from the front) and pulled to get it out of the larger unit holding all lights. Be sure and put rubber cover back on before re-inserting the two white clips.

Service error 5100

As a technician, I have worked on tons of printers. This particular error had stumped me for a while, but I finally found the cause. As others had pointed out before, it can have alot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. You're on the right track - I found the the purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from factory. If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100 (or E-2-2 on the LCD display) Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corrosponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on) Hope this helps some of you out.

Cover open

The cover is the scanner assembly you lift up when changing the ink. at the back right hand side you will see a curved white projection from this. It is this that works the micr switch at the back, BUT this switch should have a white lever clipped to it. If it does not shake the whole printer to see if you've still got it inside. re-clip it back on and carefully reassemble scanner assy. Should now work ok until you have to change the cartridge again.

Cover open

This is because the white plastic rocker switch which is very poorly attached to the micro switch at the back of the unit has become dislodged which means the micro switch is permanently open. Unfortunately due to its very poor design it has probably lost its plastic lugs which keep it attached to the micro switch.

Locate the dislodged rocker switch, you may have to turn the printer upside down and shake it. If it won't come out, shake it after removing the cover...

If the plastic lugs are still in place then you are lucky. You will need to get inside the unit to refit it...

Open the unit as if you were about to replace the ink. Unclip the plastic prop at the top; you can pinch it using a pair of pliers. The cover will now hinge up much further, there is some minor friction still but it will come up to 90 degrees with a gentle tug.

It will now easily lift away from the hinges on the main body. You can remove the ribbon leads if you like. They go back again very easily.

You should now be able to get your fingers inside the unit. You will need a flat blade screw driver to assist you refitting the rocker. You should feel it clip into place if the plastic lugs are in place, even if they are worn. Test it and check it won’t fall off again easily.

It is much more likely that it will fall off again as the lugs have worn away.

This can be fixed by heating a medium sized paper clip with a lighter and pushing it through the side of the rocker, in the same location as the lugs. Cut the paper clip with the pliers, this will leave a 2-3mm pin sticking through the side of the rocker. Do this for both sides. Resite the rocker, then using a flat blade screw driver push the pins into the holes on the black micro switch. This should be quite easy as the rocker will still site in the correct position even if they are missing.

You will now have a fully functioning switch which will be far stronger than the original design.

Put everything back together, and test it.
