    Maybe the top cover sensor got stuck. Exercise it by opening and closing it again. Then, unplug the power adapter from the printer, replug after 30 seconds. That should give the printer enough time to reset itself. If the problem continues, contact Lexmark technical support.

Canon MX 892 = Printer error has occurred. Turn off power than turn back on. If problem persists see the manual.

The grinding noise would be a clue that something needs to be put right before the reset would work!

Open the cover and check the paper has not jammed or cartridge has not been placed correctly.......remove cartridge and replace! Then turn off power and back on again!

I have a brand new 800 Epson printer, when I turned it on for the first time it keeps saying jammed paper and I haven't even put paper in it yet

I suggest you return it to the shop and ask for a replacement printer as it is covered by warranty. Do not try to fix it because you most likely will void your warranty.

I was unable to loace the Toner Cartridge. Could you please tell me where to open up and how to replace the tomer cartridge? Thank you. Regards, Lisa Li

Make sure that the printer is turned on. Open the front cover. Slowly but firmly pull the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly out of the machine. Push down the green lock lever and take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit. Unpack the new toner cartridge. Hold the cartridge level with both hands and gently rock it from side to side five or six times to spread the toner evenly inside the cartridge. Pull off the protective cover. Put the new toner cartridge firmly into the drum unit until you hear it lock into place. If you put it in properly, the lock lever will lift automatically. Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the green tab from right to left and left to right several times. Put the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back in the printer. Close the front cover.

If you want even more detailed information, there is a how to guide with ilustrations on each step on the Brother website.

Where can i put lexmark ink?i can't see the place where should i put the new ink for lexkmark x2650

Make sure the Lexmark X2650 printer is on. Lift the scanner unit to access the cartridge area. The cartridge carrier will move to the center automatically for the loading position.

Press the down the carrier levers to open and remove the used cartridges. Load the new cartridges and close the cover. Close the scanner unit.
Sometimes the ink cartridge carrier won't position automatically to the middle even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Just unplug the printer from the power source. With the cover open, hold the solid white strip and gently slide the carrier to the middle of the printer. Load the cartridges. Close the cover. Plug the printer back to power source. Thanks.

Hey, this is the first time I am changing the ink cartridge but it doesn't want to come out, even after I press down on the green button. Why? Anyone know?

First open the front cover, you have to pull on the handel in the middle of cartidge with some force to take out of machine. You can put it down on a table, then press the green button to remove the grey toner cartridge out of the black drum unit. Then put new toner in drum unit and put back into machine

Have you put the black label back right. It will only work properly if you have the top near the 2 straight lugs. If it is down low near the curved lug then it will block the chip! Make certain that ink hasn't covered it up too.

Printer Head Cleaning

It's in the blue plastic cover. Power down the SP75. Open cover to see the printhead. You'll see a green stripe. The printhead is in front of the stripe. Use an alcohol pen to run back and forth over the printhead. Do not drip alcohol onto the print ribbon. Allow a minute or two for alcohol to dry before reclosing the cover.
