Question about Brother DCP-585cw All-in-One Wireless Color Inkjet Printer

1 Answer

A small white plastic piece has broken off the bottom of the printer. I am not sure where it has come from. I think the paper carrier may have been forced and caused this problem. Now the printer is not picking up the paper and the message comes NO PAPER FEED. Can this piece be purchased and installed and where is the closest Brother repair centre to Ettalong Beach NSW. What would the cost for this be?

In my experience, what you say might be correct. The small white broken piece could be the arm that comes down and touches the top sheet of paper in the tray, so it knows how much paper is loaded. When there is no arm, it can not recognize that there is paper loaded, thus NO PAPER FEED. I have fixed one of these in the past, but I had 2 identical printers to mix and match parts. I am not sure what it will cost you, you would have to call the repair center and find out. It took me about 2 hours to fix, so I hope a professional could do it faster than that.

I'm getting an error message when trying to print


Error 6C10 appears on certain Canon printers. It is a "valve cam sensor error". Here are some things to try to fix it:

Solution 1:
  • Move the printhead to the center.
  • Disconnect the printer and check on the right: is the purge unit ok? Is there a paper jam or piece of paper stuck in it?
Solution 2:
  • Do a reset of the printer by performing the following:
    • Turn the printer Power ON
    • Hold down the "Resume" button (triangle in a circle) for 15 to 20 seconds.
Solution 3:
  • Power off the printer.
  • Open the door.
  • Power on.
  • When the cartridge is in the center, close the door.
Solution 4:
  • Open the lid and allow the ink cartridge carrier to center itself.
  • Looking to the right, you will see a row of white rollers behind the carrier.
  • At the end of the rollers there is a small, clear piece of plastic that sticks up. Take a small piece of a paper towel and wipe all of the ink off this piece of plastic. When that is clean move on to the ink pad.
  • About 1 inch, towards the front of the printer from that piece of plastic, is a small square, about 1/2 inch per side, that is a small foam pad. This is where the excess ink is collected.
  • Take a piece of paper towel and press into the foam. Do this until the paper towel is no longer collecting ink. Close the lid, turn off the printer then turn it back on.
Solution 5:
Solution 6:
  • Remove case and look for the micro switch that is being pressed by one of the purge unit cams. Clean the switch and the cams. If the problem does not clear, replace the micro switch.

Paper keeps jamming


I had this problem and it was a plastic piece that kept getting in the way. Turn the printer around, open the "duplex" addition piece and see if there is a white plastic piece that is on the left just inside the black paper guide. Mine was sticking out. It looks like it may have a broken tab that clicks on a rotating bar on the outside of the black paper guide. I used a dime to hold the white plastic piece in place. Now I only jam on occasion and everything else works perfectly!

it is really difficult to identify what kind of part you are referring to, the only thing you can do is to took a snap shot and send this to a shop.or bring the part itself.
I think this part came from the feeding assembly, most part came loose after a period of time

Printer wont print


To solve the printing problem..


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Epson C 44 ink jet printer loose white L shape plastic part.


ONE OF THE ARTICLES IN, www.fixya.com/support/t262916-printer_carriage ,GAVE US SOME GOOD INFORMATION. IT REFERS TO A PAGE IN A PARTS MANUAL THAT WAS IN PDF FORM, WHICH WE HAD TROUBLE DOWN LOADING. WITH THE DOWN LOADING OF AN UP DATED ADOBE, WE MANAGED TO VIEW IT. THE ASSEMBLY THAT THE WHITE PLASTIC L SHAPED PIECE WAS MOUNTED TO WAS HANGING DOWN, AND HAD COME LOOSE. THE PLASTIC L PART GOES ON ONE OF THE SHAFTS ON THE LITTLE WHITE PLASTIC CARRIER, THAT MOUNTS INTO THE SLOTS. NOTE THEIR IS A SMALL SPRING THAT IS ON ONE SIDE AND IT ATTACHS TO ONE OF THE SHAFTS ON THAT SIDE OF THE WHITE PLASTIC CARRIER. PUT IT BACK TO GETHER IF THE PARTS AREN'T BROKEN AND THE PRINTER SHOULD WORK. I FEEL IT WAS THE SPRING COMING OFF OF THAT SHAFT THAT ALLOWED IT TO COME LOOSE, AND SHUT THINGS DOWN. GOOD LUCK

Had paper jam. removed paper, now getting 11 flashes, but cannot clear error as per manual instructions. getting service error 6A00.


I have the Canon Pixma iP4000R printer. I had an error code of 6A00 and my power light was blinking/flashing green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange (12 oranges).

I tried the “waste ink counter reset reset” procedure: Power on while holding the stop/reset button and pushing the service button twice, then pushing the stop/rest button 4 times to clear the error, but that didn’t work.

My ink cartridge carrier wasn't moving-staying in the center. I thought I had a paper jam.

I looked at a few blogs about my error on other Canon Pixma models and they kept talking about “sponges”.

The following is what I discovered that cleared my error and now my printer is back to printing!

The “sponges” are 2 hard pieces of absorbing plastic or something of the like. I was looking for a softer material like the long thin gray foam strip material in my printer. The 2 "sponges" on my Pixma iP4000R were next to each other-one was rectangular and one was square-like. Originally they were white but the ink made them black/navy.

The "sponges" are located on the right under where the ink cartridge carrier "rests".

I didn't see the sponges at first, as there was a white backwards “L” shaped plastic piece that had a spring attached to it(purge unit). The “L” shaped piece was moved forward out of its place. I used my pen tip and pushed that piece back and found that the rectangular "sponge" had popped out of its place.

I used a pen tip popped both “sponges” out and rinsed them with water and voila they were once again white. I think the rectangular one had so much ink on it it popped itself out of place.

My error is gone and I can print again!

Replacement parts


I think you may have the skills to make it
get some plastic epoxy or , i get them from a auto parts store but you can also find them in home improvement stores, etc

make a small paper cylindrical mold that would engulf the old plastic piece, fill it with epoxy to the top, turn it upside down and place it on the plastic part where the old hook was. once solid you can cut this to size so it will hold the spring.

Printer Error-->


I just moved to Alaska and shipped this printer up and had the same problem. What I found was that when I start up the printer, the carrier that holds the printer cartridges would not move all the way to right side of the tray. You can see this if you open up the top portion of the scanner glass carrier.

Turn off the power and remove the electrical plug from the back of the printer to be sure no power is feeding the printer.

If you closed the top of the printer, the part where the scanner / copier glass is at, open it back up.

Reach into the printer and manually move the piece of plastic that holds the print cartridges to the left.

Directly underneath where the print cartridge carrier defaults to on the right hand side of the printer you will see a piece of white plastic on the bottom. It will probably be sticking up. It is hinged. Push it down gently so that it rests down inside of the indention where it is supposed to be.

Plug your printer back in and turn it on. The printer will go through its self test, and if this was the problem will work correctly for you.
