If you get a grinding noise and if the carriage stalls in the center then it is a scanner failure issue.
Removed all the ink cartrigdes and move the carriage too and fro a couple of times and then reinsert the cartridges.
You can try a semifull reset
That is Unplug the power cord from the All-In-One when there is still power in unit and also unplug the power cord from unit, wait for 1Mins.
Then plug power cable directly to wall outlet without surg protector, then before plugging the power cord to the printer press and hold the # and No 6 button in the uint do not release the button unit it gives a message as reset, if the unitturns off the release the keys and turn the power on and try to make a copy.
If it still makes the sound then it is a hardware issue it needs to be replaced.

Good Luck

Installed new black cartridge - had ink


A firmware update for your model addresses the print quality problem that you're currently experiencing. Please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark S400 Series Firmware Update. If more than one download is listed for your model, choose the first download in the list. If it is the wrong firmware level, an error message will tell you which firmware level is correct.
Should the error continue to display even after successfully updating your printer, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance. Your printhead itself might be the cause of the problem.

Stylus CX3900 won't turn on


Do you used ORIGINAL epson cartridges? I used false ones, the yellow one exploded (I'm NOT kidding) inside the printer, and it died. Too, may cause errors on the printer's motherboard, on each cartridge, have a chip who don't metter the ink inside, calculate an extimated value. When you put a false cartridge, the chip may send wrong/corrupted data to the printer system, making it dizzy, and stop working... Epson products have short lifetime, i rarely saw an epson printer go more than 6 years, the most ones die on the first year. Is what i know, good luck.

Blinking "E" and "5"


Hi barneyfan -

You're absolutely right - E5 means that the ink is empty (or that the ink can't be loaded for some other reason, such as an incompatible cartridge or improper installation)

For your reference, here is the complete list of error codes for the MP150 with brief descriptions:

E2 No paper (ASF)
E3 Paper jam
E4 No ink
E5 The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed, or the ink cartridges are not installed properly
E8 Waste ink absorber full, or platen waste ink absorber full
E9 The connected digital camera / video camera does not support Camera-Direct Printing
E14 The Ink cartridges whose destination are wrong
E15 Ink cartridge is not installed E16 - Ink remaining is unknown
E16 -E19 Failed to scan head alignment sheet
E22 Carriage error
E23 Paper feed error
E24 Purge unit error
E25 ASF(cam) sensor error
E26 Internal temperature rise error
E27 Waste ink absorber full or platen waste ink absorber full
E28 Ink cartridge temperature rise error -
E29 EEPROM error
E33 Paper feed position error
E35 15 USB Host VBUD overcurrent error
E37 17 Abnormal motor driver error
E40 20 Other hardware error

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind regards,
H2H

Dell printer model# A940 50c error


Test your cartridges.

Remove the color ink cartridge then lower the cover of your printer. If the error message displays again, replace the black cartridge with a new one (or return the new one). Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black ink cartridge then lower the cover. If the error message displays again, replace the color cartridge with a new color cartridge.
Note: My manual indicated that the printer might have detected a short circuit in a cartridge. I returned a month old black cartridge got a new one and my printer is working fine now. Good luck.

I replaced the ink cartridge now ink is sqirting everywhere


What has happened is that there is a "Seal" that sits under the Ink Cartridge when at rest, I suggest that somehow it isn't doing it's job, perhaps it has been dislodged somehow or sometimes they go all hard and don't do the "Soaking Up" of the excess ink. Either that or the ink cartridge's seal is faulty?
