SOURCE: Hi - I have a

I think you have a disc in the mechinism that has popped out of the tray.

Taking these apart and getting the disc out can sometimes be a pretty difficult problem. If you do not have some good mechanical skills and are able to remember exactly where each screw goes and how each cable is plugged in, I would not try it yourself.

A repair center could probably fix this for around $75, depending on the rates of the shop. It should only take them about an hour to do this. And normally they will also clean and lube the mech properly while they are already in there.

If you do attempt this make sure everything goes back together exactly the way it came apart.

Once you get the mech out of the unit, look to see if there is are any disc's that are out of place. Sometimes you can push the disc back into the tray without dis-assembling the top part of the mech. This would be the preferable method so you will not need to re-assemble the mech.
If a tray is loaded into the area where the laser pick up is located and a disc is actually clamped into it, do not try to remove that.

It is likely that it is in the proper position.

If you require any further help let me know, and a good rating is always appreciated.

SOURCE: Clear carriage jam -hp d7460

Carriage jam usually comes from ink on the clear encoder strip that runs across behind the carriage. You need a damp Q-tip to clean from one end to the other, The other thing, on the HP is the cleaning station on the right gets gummed up with old ink and won't go toward the back fully, stopping the carriage.

During startup the drive belt slips and gives an error


Open the printer's door and look for the print carriage. It's the platform that moves back and forth over the paper, probably where you put new cartridges. Unplug the printer, and check this belt and its pulleys to see if it's either broken or possibly covered in ink. The drive belt will be black and have gear teeth on it. If you see a metal or plastic ribbon, that's more likely the encoder that let's the printer's computer read the position of the carriage. See if you can nudge the carriage and make it move a little; it may simply be jammed. Check the carriage's moving path and make sure it's not obstructed. Any other problems would probably best be handled by Epson.

I have a Voco Pro Model DVD-Duet. The problem is when you put a cd in the little center knob is stuck down that keeps the cd on tract it looks as if someone has pushed it down and it want come back up so...


It is possible the carriage that the CD goes in does not lower onto the center hub rather than the hub being too low.

The carriages move by a small motor and often there is a belt that slips so carriage doesn't move. Replacing the belt is usually required.

Working on the CD drives is very tender fragile work so you should take this to a repair shop. Contact the manufacturer for a recommendation.

My printer carriage won't move???? It is an HP C 4180 printer. I put in a new black ink and it jammed. I know how to install the ink and nothing happened that was different except now it won't move. Can...


Make sure the cartridge is firmly seated in its holder. It's possible that the carriage belt has broken or has slipped off the motot pulley. Look inside the printer and locate the flat toothed belt that pulls the carriage back and forth. follow it to either end and make sure that it isn't broken or slipped off the motor.

It doesnt recognise cds


There are a few possible causes. 1. Lens on laser pickups dirty. 2. The belt that closes the drawer also lifts the CD assembly to allow disc to spin. If the belt is loose, drawer may close but not be able to lift CD. Listen to mechanism after drawer closes. Do you hear the disc spinning up? or Do you hear a motor trying and then shutting off? You can also remove the case top and visually check these. 3. The spindle height may have slipped. 4. The focus and tracking may have changed with age. 5. The pickup may be bad. And finally the carriage may be stuck and not moving the Pickup(Laser Assembly) to its start position.

Printer keeps saying ''carriage jam error''...


Friends,

The encoder strip may also be dirty, this causes the printer to believe that the carriage moves less than it actually does and tries to compensate by moving the carriage even further - slamming into the left side of the printer as a result.

Carefully leaning the encoder strip with a lint-free cloth wetted with luke warm water (it should not drip!) can fix this problem.

If the carriage stays in the middle of the printer and doesn't move, the carriage drive belt may be broken. Usually this is not replaced so the printer unfortunately has to be scrapped. But contact your local HP support for further advice.
