Epson C60When I press the ink replacement button, the print head doesn't move to the center. Previously, I had purchased a ink cartridge that turned out to be too large, so I took the ink cartridge...


Unplug the printer from computer, then Unplug the printer from wall when the carriage is all the way to the left, then manually slide it to the area where you can open the ink cartridges, pull all ink cartridges out, close cover and turn printer on. Printer should now be acting as it should.

Hi, when I power up my MP630, there is a loud clacking sound and then I get an error code of 5100 of 5C20. There is no paper jamed - can you help?


Error Code 5100
It can have a lot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. 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 corresponding 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)

Error 5200:


Start with printer powered off
1. Open cover of printer and verify that the ink cartridge carriage is not in the center of the printer. Leave cover open.
2. Unplug the electrical cord from the printer and wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug electrical cord back in, when ink cartridge carriage moves to the center of the printer quickly unplug the electrical cord again. This should leave the ink cartridge carriage in the center of the printer so you can get to it.
4. Lift up the gray arm that surrounds the ink cartridges.
5. Remove the entire ink cartridge holder (not just the ink cartridges). It will lift out easily as a unit. Lower the gray arm that you lifted to remove the cartridge holder.
6. Close printer cover. Plug electricity back in.
7. There should be a message about checking the ink cartridge on the display (I can't remember exactly what it said but it was something like that).
8. Open printer, lift the gray arm that surrounds the ink cartridge area and reinsert the ink cartridge holder (with the ink cartridges in it). Lower the gray arm.
9. Close printer cover.
10. The display should appear normal now, and you should be able to print again.

How do I change the ink waste absorber on a canon i9900


Turn the printer off.
Disconnect the AC power cord.
Lift the lid to expose the print-head mechanism.
Look where the ink-cartridges are "parked".
The ink-absorber is below those ink-cartridges.
Close the lid.
Reconnect the AC power cord.
Turn the printer on.
Lift the lid, and wait until the print-head slides away from that "park" position.
Without turning the printer off, disconnect the AC power-cord.
Now, you have access to the absorber.
Change the absorber.

Ink cartridge slams from side to side and lights


Epsons often experience this odd problem. This is a sort of tempory fix.
turn printer on allow carriage to leave its base and disconnect the power cord.


Clean the rails the cartridges run on. You should notice the cloth comes away with black stuff.
Use a small amount of sewing machine oil on a cloth and wipe the rails again ( or small amount of wd40 on a cloth.

Slide the carriage along and back a few times. then return it to home and reconnect power cord and turn on. That should get it to behave for a few more weeks/months. If it continues, then the head is damaged and will have to be renewed or buy a new Canon Printer. ( NOT EPSON)
