MY cartridge went haywire today

Today, I installed a new print cartridge, and everything seemed fine..all of a sudden the cartridge zipped across and slammed into the printer's walls, and made a weird noise, also something popped out , it looks like a guide.
it is about 1 ft long, and it is a flat clear strip with a single hole in each end with arrows at the end. In very small print it says: cav.134 1pm320434
01. 06 . I dont see where to connect it ..please help! Thank you

    Thanks for trying, but I just jumped in, and decided to figure it out myself, and I found the metal tabs you were talking about, and replaced the plastic strip, and its working like a charm now!

Just a note to thread the plastic stripit through the slot located on the back of the ink cartridge (holder). My printer (X3430) has not only the metallic part on the right but a small spring that connects to the plastic strip as well!!

On the left side inside the chassi there is a small hole with a little metalpart sticking up (about 0.5cm high). On the piece where the inc cartrigde is there is a vertical hole you can see the hole easiest from the left side (about 1cm high). On the right side there should be a 2cm metallic part sticking up from the bottom.

You will probably have to bend one of the parts to get the plastic strip on place, just make sure that once you get it on place to bend them back so that the strip doesn't fall off again.

in my case the metallic parts where bent like: \ (left) and | (right) I had to bend them | and | to get the strip on place and then bend them \ and /. Not sure if the right part should be / or | though.

Canon i9100: colors printing incorrectly


I've had the Canon i9100 since 2003 and have excellent photo printing results. In 2009 it started playing up and I'd gt some banding. More recently, black didn't want to print. It was as though the black ink in the print head got dry some days.

April 2010 - The colours started printing strange and I bought a brand new print head and installed it. Only takes a minute. Still had an issue with photo printing. Black and white was excellent but colours weren't true.

Found advice online to try cleaning the print head to print head carrier electrical contacts by rubbing them with a rubber eraser.

I did that and now I'm getting perfect colour photo prints again.

I had been thinking about buying a new A3+ printer but this is old printer is now working as good as new.

P315 print cartrige error


What we surmised is that the little wire contacts on the print cartridge were bad. One suggestion was to use a pencil eraser over the area where the small wire dots are on the cartridge, then wipe clean with a lint free cloth. That didn't work either so I exchanged the cartridge and the problem went away.

Will not print


Try using the 'clean cartridge' setting with your printer, this usually forces the ink through the installed cartridges.

Good luck!
