SOURCE: I had a major paper jam at my printer (Canon,

  1. Protect yourself from shock. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the Canon Inkjet Printer. This is an important step when working inside ANY electronic device.
  2. Step 2 Unhinge the back access panel of the printer. It seems repetitive to say this, but this door will be in the BACK of the printer.
  3. Step 3 Look through the opened back panel and look for paper. Remove any and all paper you find jammed there.
  4. Step 4 Close the back access panel. Make sure that it latches into place and looks the same way that it did before you opened it.
  5. Step 5 Find the front or top access panel. This is the panel you would lift to change ink cartridges. Open this access panel. If the carriage that holds the ink cartridges moves, then you forgot to unplug the printer, go back and do that now. Look for paper that may be jammed in this area of the printer.
  6. Step 6 Remove any paper you find jammed here. When pulling from the front there will be resistance from the paper feeder. Pull slowly or the paper will rip and create a more stressful problem.
  7. Step 7 Close the front access panel. Make sure that it falls or latches back in place. It should look the same way that it did before you opened it.
  8. Step 8 Plug the printer's power cord into the wall outlet, and attempt to print again. If the printer prints the job, then you have successfully removed the paper jam.

How to change toner in laserjet printers

First Turn the printer's power off. Some power button is located on the control panel on the top of the printer, on the right side. Open the printer's top cover by pressing the top cover lever, which is located on the bottom side of the top cover. Lift the cover all of the way open. Locate the toner cartridge. It will be right in the center of the printer and has a handle on the top of it. Grab the handle and pull the cartridge out. Hold the replacement cartridge at its side and gently rock it back and forth. This will help to distribute the toner equally throughout the cartridge.Remove the paper cover from the top of the cartridge.Insert the replacement cartridge into the printer and close the printer's top cover.

How to remove side panel hp 3600

To remove the side cover: Open the fuser cover and remove the fuser. There are four screws that hold the top cover on, remove those and lift the top off, watching for the connector wire on the right side. Remove the formatter. On the bottom of each side panel, where the lift handle is, there will be 1 screw, remove the one for the side you want to remove. If you want to remove the left panel there is also a screw on the lower back of that panel. The right panel only has the one screw. If you go to you should be able to download the service manual that will give you detailed instructions and pictures.

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.

Dell 3010cn error code 077 303 Close paper cover paper cover is open. Which is the paper cover and what can I do to get it going?

The Paper Cover is located on the top of the printer. It is the vented panel just behind where your printed documents come out. It lifts up to clear paper jams, and documents won't print until it is closed. Just push the panel down until it clicks in place...that should do it!

How do i change the ink cartridge in my canon mp510 printer

  1. Press the "On" button on the top panel of the printer to turn it on. Open the paper output tray at the front of the printer.
  2. Lift the entire printer cover, which should snap open. Then lift the small inner cover.
  3. Press down on the tab below each ink tank to snap out and remove the tank. Lift the print head lock lever that holds the ink tanks in place.
  4. Lift the overflow tray toward the top of the printer and slowly pull it out of the printer. Take care to avoid spilling any ink that has collected in the tray.

Good Luck!

Where is the catridge of pixma mp 240

easy one.. open the front of the printer, where the paper comes out. Place your thumb under the lip of the printer just under the name Canon and lift. The top of the printer will lift up and lock into place when you lift it high enough. Do this with the printer turned on and the cartridges will slide out from the right into the middle for easier replacement. If you do this and the printer is turned off, the cartridges are hidden from view as they are parked on the rest stand underneath the front panel buttons. Press the grey cartridge release towards the front of the printer and the cartridge enclosure will open, remove the cartridge, refit the new one (or the old one), close the enclosure cover and then drop the top cover by pushing the support leg towards the back of the printer as you lower the top. Then go into control panel, printers and scanners and right click on the printer icon. Select properties, then select the maintainence tab. click on the printer alignment and follow the procedure.. Done..

HP 2600n printer

1-st of all remove the dark blue/gray top cover - from the back/top of the printer there are in L and R side 2 holes. Stick a slim screwdriver to release boath locks and lift it up. Under this cover U'll find 4 scrwes. Before lifting the white cover remove the R printer cover for removing the control panel cable. Once U remove the white top cover U can access the fusssing assambley.
Good luck.
