If you move the printer on the side or during a paper jam it can move this lever and get out of sync with the cartridge bay cleaning process witch is when you power on the printer and this problem may happen.

I took the top off the printer and noticed that when the cartridge bay wanted to move to the left this lever wont go down holding it at the right and when it did go to the left it was with some force so the cartridge bay was always out of center (it supposed to be at the center when you turn on the printer otherwise it will give an error message) so I pushed manually this lever at the right (is hard to move but you can move it) and let the cartridge bay sit on the cleaning pads at the right then turn off the printer.


When I turned on the printer, the cartridge bay returned to his proper routine and was centered so the problem was solved. I hope it helps.

DCP 7030 printer says toner life end, replace toner cartridge. After replacing the toner printer still gives the same message and will not print.


What worked for me was to follow the instructions in this video: Resetting lever on cartridge There is a lever on the left hand side of the toner cartridge (left hand side - with you holding the cartridge as if you were going to insert it into the printer). It seems that lever has to be at the '12 o'clock' position to tell the printer that you have a new cartridge. The video showed the person removing 3 screws and then ensuring the lever was at the '12 o'clock' position. On my cartridge I had to do some wiggling to get the lever to move as it's gear assembly seemed to want it to only move down to the '4 o'clock position' and then stay there. Eventually I got it moved to 12 o'clock - and when I stuck the toner back into the printer - the 'toner end of life' message went away. I then removed the toner cartridge - as I wanted to try another cartridge that I had also reset the lever on. I found that lever had again moved to the 3 or 4 o'clock position - after printing just one test page so I am guessing it being at the 12 o'clock position tells the printer you have a new cartridge - and then it moves over to the regular position at 3 or 4 o'clock..

3 Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to
touch only the black plastic, gently remove the tape by using the pink pull tab.

Caution! Do not touch the gold-colored contacts or ink nozzles.
Once you have removed the plastic tape, install the print cartridge
immediately to prevent the ink from drying in the nozzles.


4 Hold the black or photo print cartridge with the HP label on top. Slide the print cartridge at a slight angle up into the right side of the print carriage.
Press firmly until the print cartridge snaps into place.
Caution! Do not attempt to push the cartridge straight into the slot.
It must slide in at a upward slight angle.

5 Hold the tri-color print cartridge with the HP label on top. Slide the print
cartridge at a slight angle into the left side of the print carriage.
Press firmly until the print cartridge snaps into place.
Caution! Do not attempt to push the cartridge straight into the slot.
It must slide in at a slight upward angle.

It starts printing, then stops, the printer cartrige is jammed


Try emoving the duplex cartridge on the back (return printer to it's original configuration) and try printing. If the printer prints OK, then re-attach the duplexer checking for anything that could interfere with the print cartridge.

If the printer doesn't print, then I suspect something has fell into the printer and is creating enough resistance for the printer to detect and report. Turn the printer off, Remove all the cables from it. Try inverting the printer and gently shake it to see if anything falls out that could be jamming the printer cartridge.

Ink cartridge carrier jam


If possible, shut off the printer completely and manually move the ink carriage to where the cartridges can be swapped out. turn it back on and try again. try to see if some mechanism that holds the missing cartridge in place has swung down and is bumping into something, preventing the carriage from moving past a certain point.

Print cartridge cradle is stuck ican't find where it is jammed


This might help . . . Mine finished printing one doc & then made a terrible noise & sent a message to my screen that "print cartridge cradle is stuck." When i opened door, i could see it was stuck off to the left side so left cartridge was obscured. I could not get it to budge, although i kept turning it off, gently pushing & turning it back on. Finally, i got my hand inside & determined that the little door to the left-side cartridge had popped open & was causing it to remain stuck. After some struggles (turn off printer first!) i was able to maneuver it around & close it tight. Now, all is well . . .

PC-940 Cartridge stuck


Turn off machine, you can move the cartridge head back and forth when it is off. If it won't move there is something that is loose and is in the way, check.
Not sure if you mean it is stuck when it was moving or if the cartridge is stuck in the printer?

Make sure the cover that holds the ink cartridge in place is completely closed down on the cartridge. Also make sure there is not a pencil or something under the cover where the ink is , obstructing the print head
