Remove protective material on right side - can't remove it

Step 3 of directions for installation states "remove the protective material on the right side" The only thing I can find on the right are two white ribbons curved out with rows of tiny print (KFC AWM.......). I pulled on this and one end of the ribbon tore lose. I've either just ruined this new printer or the protective material is really stuck in there. Help.

In all likely hood you just ruined the printer. Take it back to the store and tell them you bought it that way. ;)

Generally all protective objects for removal are colored neon, obviously labeled as such, or are simply tape. The protective material they indicated is most likely either a piece of tape across the print head or a plastic plug, which may or may not have even been there depending on if the printer was a return, it fell loose, etc. before you got it home or took it out of the box.

How do I change the ink cartridges in my Canon MP480? rn_bluediamond@yahoo.com


Step 1
Protect your desk, printer stand or work surface by placing an old newspaper in front of or next to the printer. The newspaper will provide you with a place to work without getting ink anywhere you don't want it. It seems as though no matter how careful or neat you are, a little bit of ink always manages to escape when replacing an ink cartridge.
Step 2
Prepare the new ink cartridge for installation. Remove the replacement cartridge for your Canon printer from all of its packaging. You may need scissors to remove the heavy wrapper. Leave the protective orange cap or tape in place for now. Set the new cartridge aside on the newspaper.
Step 3
Remove the old ink cartridge from the Canon printer. With the printer on, open the front door or panel of the printer. Wait a second or two and the ink cartridge holder should move to the opening where it is accessible. If it does not move, shut the door, turn the printer off for a moment, turn it back on and try again. Lift the small lever that secures the ink cartridges within their holder. On most Canon printers, it is colored green and located on the right side of the ink cartridge holder. Gently lift the old ink cartridge out of the printer.
Step 4
Place the new ink cartridge in the printer. Remove the plastic cap or tape protecting the ink cartridge, being careful not to touch the black and gold "sensor" area of the cartridge. Gently but firmly push the new cartridge into the empty slot left where you removed the old ink cartridge. The label should be facing outward. You should feel the cartridge pop into place. Then push the lever back down that you lifted in Step 3. Close the printer door. Use paper towel or wet wipes to clean any ink from your hands

    How to install ink cartridge


    Dear Sir,

    Plz folow This step to solve your problem,

    1. Step 1 Open the printer cover and prop it up with the support brace located on the right-hand side of the cover. It's similar to the way a car hood is propped open.
    2. Step 2 Remove the black FINE ink cartridge from its container and locate the protective tape. Gently remove the protective tape used to cover the print head nozzles and electrical contacts.
    3. Step 3 Insert the black FINE ink cartridge into the printer slot labeled "B." It will rest on a slight angle. Push the cartridge up and back until it clicks into place.
    4. Step 4 Repeat the process for the color FINE ink cartridge, placing it in the slot labeled "C."
    5. Step 5 Raise the printer cover slightly to loosen the support brace. Fold the brace inward and replace the cover to its closed position.
    6. Step 6 A green LED light will flash on top of the printer. In about a minute, the LED stops flashing and displays "1." Once the "1" appears, you're ready to print.

    Carriage jam on hp photosmart printer


    The print carriage may get stuck on either side or in the middle of the printer. The Carriage Jam: Open Door, clear carriage jam, and then press OK to continue error message may display on the front panel of the all-in-one.

    Solution
    The print carriage is the device which contains the print head and moves left to right during printing.
    Figure 1: Carriage Assembly

    To resolve this issue, follow the steps below in the order presented.

    Step one: Print a Self Test

    Follow the steps below:
    1. Press the Setup button.
    2. Select Print Report and press OK .
    3. The self-test page should print. If it prints a test page, there is no need to follow the remaining steps, as the error message may be false. Make sure the printer now prints from the computer (if installed on one). If it does not print, proceed to the step two.

    Step two: Clear the paper path

    Follow the steps below to clear the printer of any jammed paper and reset the printer.
    1. Leave the printer on and then disconnect the power cable and the USB or Ethernet cable from the back of the printer. Do not reconnect them until instructed to later.

    NOTE: Make sure the printer is on before disconnecting the power cord. Failure to disconnect the power cord from the rear of the unit can cause damage when removing jammed paper.

    2. Open the top access door.

    Figure 2: Opening the top access door

    3. Make note of where the carriage is stuck and look for jammed paper. A paper jam can cause the error message and the carriage stall. Some paper may be jammed in different locations than those shown in the photos below.

    Figure 3: Paper jammed on the left side

    Figure 4: Top view of paper jammed on the left side

    Figure 5: Paper jammed on the right side

    Figure 6: Top view of paper jammed on the right side

    NOTE: Do not use any tools or other devices to remove jammed paper. Always use caution when removing jammed paper from inside the unit.

    If the carriage is stuck on the right side:
    a. Check for any paper or object that may be restricting the carriage.
    b. Move carriage all the way to the left side.
    c. Check the paper path all the way to the right side and remove any paper still in the printer.

    If the carriage is stuck on the left side:
    d. Check for any paper or object that may be restricting the carriage.
    e. Move carriage all the way to the right side.
    f. Check the paper path all the way to the left side and remove any paper still in the printer.

    If the carriage is stuck in the middle:
    g. Check for any paper or object that may be restricting the carriage.
    h. Move carriage all the way to the left side.
    i. Check the paper path all the way to the right side and remove any paper still in the printer.
    j. Move carriage all the way to the right side.
    k. Check the paper path all the way to the left side and remove any paper still in the printer.
    4. Remove the rear access door or duplexer (if installed) from the back of the printer.
    5. Check for and remove any paper still in the printer.
    6. Replace the rear access door, and close the top access door.
    7. Reconnect only the power cable. If the printer does not automatically turn on, press the Power button.

    NOTE: The printer may go through a warm-up period of up to two minutes. Lights may flash and the carriage may move. Wait until this warm-up period is complete before going to the next step.

    8. If the Power light is on steady, print a self-test page as done in Step one.

    If the Power light is not on steady and the carriage is still in a stalled position, proceed to the next step.

    Step three: Plug the printer directly into a wall outlet

    Verify that the printer is properly connected to a suitable power source by following the instructions below.
    1. Verify that the computer and the printer have a three-prong power plug.
    2. Remove the printer cable from any power strips or surge suppressors, and plug it directly into a grounded (three-prong) wall outlet.
    3. Try the print job again to see if this step resolved the issue.

    NOTE: If the printer prints when plugged directly into a wall outlet while disconnected from any power strips or surge suppressors, the power strip or surge suppressor may not be allowing sufficient voltage to reach the product.

    4. If this did not resolve the issue, proceed to the next step.

    Step four: Service the product

    If you have completed all of the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service your product.hope this helps
