The Print Cartridge is a moving part and there are chances that the cartridge might have moved from its clasp try removing the cartridge and reloading it and ou might have it back in order

also when you have anyway taken the cartridge out try to wipe the ink side (bottom) with a soft cloth to clean

cheers

Maybe the print heads just got knocked out of alignment while the printer was printing. Try taking the print heads out and resetting them. If this does not work then you can purchase another set of print heads or you can see if the printer has some type of warranty with it.

My printer keeps saying that the prinhead is missing and need to be installed, I took it out and installed it again and it keeps saying the same thing


it could be more serious, but I would put in the printhead and then unplug the printer and then wait a few seconds and plug it back in. it might clear the code. otherwise it might be your print head bad.

good luck

My canon MP480 keeps poping up a 5100 error


That error is a Carriage error, which means that the printer carriage (the bit that holds the cartridges) is unable to move or similar.

Make sure you've installed the cartridges correctly and that the grey lever that holds down the printhead is in the down and locked position.

You may find that you've installed the printhead incorrectly so worth pulling out the cartridges, removing the printhead and then reseating it so the lever goes down to a horizontal position. Then reinsert the cartridges.

Error code U052; keeps saying incorrect printhead installed - the printhead has never been changed


Per Canon's website, and this just worked for my mp620:
Turn the printer on.
Open the cover.
Remove the ink cartridges.
Remove the printhead.
Re-install the above (this resets the printhead).
Close the cover.
Printer should initialize and go to home menu screen.

HP 2500CM displays mech carriage jam 415 msg after power on. There is no jam, encoder strip replaced, PCA connectors and ribbon cable okay.


Is the carriage rail clean, and lightly lubricated?

Cheat the door switch and observe the carriage moving at boot up.

(Keep your fingers out of the way!)

See if you can spot where it sticks.
Sometimes the printhead capping unit / service station seizes up, and the carriage cannot leave / return to the home position.

This model was not one of their best.... Good luck

How do I change the print head on a Xerox 8500?


Hi there,

How to remove a printhead
  1. Press the on-line / off-line key on the printer operator panel to set the printer off-line.
  2. Use the upper softkeys to scroll to the 'Replace printhead' card
  3. Press the softkey below the 'Replace printhead' card to enter the wizard.
    An introduction screen displays the message 'Use this wizard to replace printheads. A roll is needed for calibration.'
  4. Press the key for 'Next'.
    The screen displays the message 'Select roll to use'.
    The system does a calibration at the end of the wizard. You can only calibrate on the defined media types. When calibration is not possible with the media available on the printer, the system asks you to load the correct media. When calibration is possible with one of the rolls, the system automatically uses the correct media roll. When calibration is possible with both rolls, use the lower softkeys to select the roll to use.
  5. Press the key for 'Next'.
    The screen displays the message 'Carriage moving to centre position...' while the carriage moves to the centre.
    The screen displays 'Open top cover.'
  6. Open the top cover. The screen displays the message 'Replace printheads' and the printheads that you must replace. Find the correct printhead number on the printhead carriage.
  7. Press the front of the printhead cover to unlock the cover.
  8. Open the printhead cover.
  9. Pull out the printhead and remove it.
How to place a printhead
  1. Remove the protective tape from the new printhead.
    Do not touch the contact and nozzle areas of the printhead after you remove the protective tape.
  2. Place the new printhead in the printhead holder.
    The printhead only fits in one way.
  3. Close the printhead cover.
  4. After you replaced the defective printhead, press the softkey for 'Next'
  5. The screen displays the message 'Make sure that all head covers are properly positioned.'
    Press the key for 'Done'.
    The screen displays the message 'Close top cover.'
  6. Close the top cover.
    The screen displays the message 'Carriage moving to home position...'
  7. The screen displays 'Calibrating...'.
    The calibration process takes several minutes.
    You can stop the calibration process at any time. Press the key for 'Cancel' to stop the calibration process.

My brand new printer is displaying printer error code 5100 and will not print or recognise the ink not sure if this means the ink cartridges are faulty.


That error translates as a "Carriage error"... which means that the printer carriage (the bit that holds the cartridges) is unable to move or similar.

Check you've installed the cartridges correctly and that the grey lever that holds down the printhead, etc.. has been put in the down and locked position.

You may find that you've installed the printhead incorrectly so worth pulling out the cartridges, removing the printhead and then reseating it so the lever goes down to a horizontal position. Then reinsert the cartridges.

If that doesn't solve it the best course of action is to return it and demand a replacement.
