Hi walsvill,

Is the plastic strip that you are talking about is a 12-14" inch long thin strip plastic at the bottom of the printer? If you are talking about this, you may try the following steps below:

1. First open up the printer and on the far left side of the printer wall there's a square hole with a little post to hook the strip on, just above the metal bar.

2. Then the strip gets fed through a slot on the print cartridge holder.

3. On the far right side of the printer there is a post with a nipple on it coming from the back wall of the printer, just above the bar. Just hook the end of the strip on it.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

I am getting a blue line on my scans when utilizing the feeder


The feeder sends the original across a small piece of glass. The scanner stays in one position as the paper runs across it rather than the scanner moving and paper staying still. The little piece of glass is probably a 1/2 inch by 12 inch glass. just clean that strip of glass. use alcohol. there is probably some whiteout on the glass. It will appear as a dot. When the paper runs across it, the dot is run across the whole page causing the line. if you cant find the strip of glass, run a scan and try to see where the scan light sits while it's running. Clean everywhere where the light sits.

Sounds like the carrier sensing strip (It tells the printer the location of the carrier) most likely time to replace

A plastic strip that runs behind the ink cartridges has fallen off. its a quarter inch wide and about 12 inches long. each end has a slot cut at a 45 degree angle and an eigth of an inch from the end. I...


That is the ink guide. If the plastic strip connector (the slot cut on both sides) is not damaged/broken, the other metal tab may have fallen making the plastic strip to fall. It is usually soldered on the metal frame of your printer, find the missing tab and solder it back in. You should find a trace of the tab's original location.

My granddaughter put a toy in printer & a part broke off - thin, translucent piece about 1/4 inch wide by 7 inches long. How do I open up the printer in order to try to put this part back?


Hello,
The plastic piece you are talking about it just prevents the paper from bending forward when is inserted in the printer. That plastic piece should not cause any paper jams or printing problems. If you do happen to have paper jams maybe a piece of plastic fell inside where the paper goes. Simply turn off the printer, remove the paper and flip the printer upside down and shake it a little that should remove any debris inside the printer.

Hello, my Canon PIXMA IP1600 is suddenly not working and has a code 5100 erorr. What to do?


Error 5100 is always a carriage error.
first thing to do is check is check the timing strip(plastic strip wide around 1/4 inches and usually located behind the print head)
Make sure there is nothing around it like piece of paper or staple or pen/pencil etc.
Make sure the strip is moving freely and hasnt come out of the roller.

Check VERY thoroughly for any obstruction at all, a very small piece of paper can cause the problem.

Clear carrier jam is error message


Not that difficult check if behind the carriage(part holding cartridges) has broken off.Its a small plastic latch about 3 inches in length.
If not then try moving the carriage manually with your hand and see if it moves if it doesn't press and hold the power button and while holding the buttons unplug and re-plug the power cable to the printer .Clean the carriage rod with alcohol on a cotton swab/lint free cloth and then see if the problem surfaces if it does then its time to get a new printer

Canon MP530 print head malfunction


I had the same problem with my printer. There is a switch that tells the printer that the cover is open or closed. Unplug the printer. Open up the printer cover and look on the inside right side edge. About half way back, you'll see a 3/4 inch by 1/2 inch hole where this switch resides. If you put your finger into it, you may be able to push on a lever and it will go down. It should spring back up when you pull your finger out. If you can feel the lever but it just sits at the bottom then there either this lever is broken or the spring fell off.

The problem with my printer was the spring had popped out. To access the switch, you'll need to remove the right side cover. Do this by removing the two screws in the back on the right side. Open the printer cover and find the third screw. It is located on the right hand side, near the front of the printer, on the top. Remove this screw and pop out the cover and see if you can find the spring that is attached to the lever. Make sure you do this in an area that if a small piece fell out you could find it.

Look at the switch and lever. If there is no spring attached to the lever then it is most likely the problem, otherwise the switch may be bad or the electronics inside the printer. There is a hook on the lever and one on the printer. Reconnect the spring and it should fix the problem. I found my spring had completely fallen out and fell on the floor when the cover was opened. It is possible that this spring if fallen out can fall back inside the printer so you may have to shake the printer to find this little spring. It is about 1/2 inch long. Hope this helps.

Error message


I can't find the "50" as part of the "Unable to print" error. Usually when you get "Unable to print", it means there's a torn piece of paper, paperclip, some foreign object in the machine somewhere. Check under the scanner lid and inside the machine, look thoroughly; you may find a piece of paper blocking a sensor. If the error message continues, follow these steps before disconnecting the MFC so you won't lose any important messages. Then, disconnect the MFC from the power source for several minutes (which will erase all faxes), and then reconnect it. Check whether the MFC has faxes in memory: 1. Press Menu/Set, 9, 0, 1. 2. If the MFC has no faxes, disconnect the MFC from the power source for several minutes and then reconnect it. ?OR? If faxes are present, you can transfer them to another fax machine. Go to Step 3. 3. Enter the fax number to which faxes will be forwarded. 4. Press Black Start. 5. After faxes are transferred, disconnect the MFC from the power source for several minutes and then reconnect it. You can transfer the Fax Journal report to another fax machine by pressing Menu/Set, 9, 0, 2 in Step 1. Let me know if it helps!
