SOURCE: Paper feed

sounds like print head is not engaging home switch or sensor. open the printer and look for any such switch to sense print head at home position.

My Canon printer MP630 has 6A80 error. I have turned off power as shown but with no result! Have checked the manual & tried again without success! Please can you help me?!


I suspect you have had a paper jam and removed the paper. However some still remains inside the machine. Its most probably around the purge unit. When the carriage parks on the right side of the machine, the purge unit rises to cap the carriage so your print head does not dry out. Open the internal cover so you can see the carriage. If it is anywhere other than at the far right side of its travel then kill the power by unplugging from the mains supply. Now the carriage is free to push. push it all the way to the left side. Shine a torch into the printer and you will see the purge unit on the right side. It has two black oblongs of rubber that mate with the print head. There will be paper scraps around it.Or it may be stuck and with a long screwdriver you can push it gently backwards to free it. If none of this helps and the carriage is stuck on the right side then again kill the power and rotate the long black roller that is under the carriage. Do this while gently trying to push the carriage to the left until its free to move then follow the above again.

Print head parked at left, error code 3527


This problem has plagued me for a very long time. The issue is that the printer head is "glued" in the resting position under the guard of the printer, so you can't remove the ink cartridges to clean it. Solution is to (I know this sounds stupid, but it works) turn the printer on the side where the printer cartridges are (if they are stuck on the left side, turn the printer on its side so the cartridges are on the bottom). Turn the printer on, and the cartridges magically start moving! I guess there are some sensors that get tricked out when you tip the printer on its side. If the cartridges are still stuck, click the "ok" button, and before it gets a chance to see if you actually fixed the problem, turn the printer off using the power button. It takes a long time, but you should see the ink trap lower (release the ink cartridges) and the ink cartridges start moving to prepare for shutdown! Grab the cartridges when they move out of their hiding place and don't let them go back until you clean the print head so it doesn't get stuck again. Remove the ink cartridges, then push the grey tab to release the print head. Wipe the bottom of the print head clean with rubbing alcohol (it will have a lot of gooey - sticky ink stuck on the bottom). I used nail polish remover since I didn't have rubbing alcohol available. You can also wipe down the ink pad which is where the ink cartridges were previously jammed to clean up more of the mess and prevent this sort of thing happening again too soon. Good luck!

Empty carriage stuck in my HP 7500A printer


Hello,Lester Makang
Your carriage got stuck in service station,is there any noise coming from the right side of printer then there will be broken gear.
Power on your printer,after you got carriage jam error open cartridge access door and wait 5 second when you see that gears trying to move,use your hand to pull your carriage to left side.Don't use much force.If your carriage got free then install your print head and cartridges.If this will happen again then take it to service center they will change the service station or broken gear but the cost goes much high.

My mp760 says incorrect print head or remove foreign object from printer but i can't see anything stuck in there.


Make sure that there is no piece of paper stock between the print head and the side of the printer, the print head is the assembly that runs left to right during printing, you may find a paper or other object blocking the assembly from complete the travel to the right or the left. If all clear you need to replace the print head assembly.
Good luck.

INK CATRIDGE CARRIER


Turn the printer on and as soon as the print head moves, pull out the power cord, or switch the printer off at the mains. You should now be able to move the print head (gently) by hand over to the left side.

Phaser 8500 error 07,010,43:20508


You have a problem with either the process drive motor not being timed. Or the print head is not pivoting forward and backward or side to side.
There is a stainless steel print block on the left lower frame about mid way back. It may have ink leaked into it and now allowing the head to pivit properly.
The print head wiper may be stuck to the print head, if the printer is not shut down properly or you had a power outage it may be tacked to the print head.
