Question about Canon PIXMA MP780 All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

*** URGENT WARNING, CHANGING INK TANKS [product design defect]

BEWARE... THIS PRODUCT IS DESIGNED TO DESTROY ITSELF: If you leave the ink tank cover latch* open for 10 minutes, the open print head carriage will shoot to the side and smash against the chassis, stripping the gears on the print head drive mechanism. Canon refuses to acknowledge or address this problem. Attention lawyers: this is a good case for a class action/product-recall lawsuit. * Reference "Easy Setup Instructions" Paragraph 5, Section 2 (Image 2 of 3)

1 Answer

My HP Photosmart 2600 displays "remove and check cartridge on right". I know it still has ink. I removed it and replaced it and it is still displayed and won't print.


Step 1: Remove, inspect, and reseat the problem cartridge
The cartridge might not have full electrical contact with the product. Removing and reinstalling the cartridge might help.

NOTE: HP cannot guarantee the quality of remanufactured or refilled cartridges. Use genuine HP cartridges to ensure good quality.

1.
Make sure that the product is turned on.

NOTE: Press the power button ( ) to turn on the product.
2.
Open the product cover and wait until the carriage is idle and silent.
3.
Open the cartridge latch.
1.
Press down lightly on top of the latch.
2.
Pull out the bottom of the latch to unhook it.
4.
Slide the cartridge out and inspect it.

Open the cartridge latch

Slide out the cartridge
CAUTION: Do not touch the copper electrical contacts or the ink nozzles.

Electrical contacts and ink nozzles
1 - Copper electrical contacts
2 - Ink nozzles
1.
Check the copper electrical contacts for debris. If any debris is evident, proceed to "Step two: Clean the cartridge and carriage contacts."
2.
Make sure that the clear nozzle protective tape has been removed.
Figure 4: Remove the clear nozzle protective tape
Remove the clear protective tape
1 - The clear nozzle protective tape
CAUTION: Do not try to remove the copper electrical strip.
3.
Look at the number on the cartridge label and make sure it is compatible with the product. Compatible cartridges are listed in the product user guide.
5.
If the cartridge is not compatible, obtain the correct cartridge, and then go to "Step five: Replace the cartridge." If the cartridge is compatible, reinstall it in the product:
1.
Hold the cartridge with the nozzles down and the copper electrical contacts facing the product, and then slide the cartridge into the carriage.
*
Cartridges marked with a triangle go into the left carriage slot.
*
Cartridges marked with a square or pentagon go into the right carriage slot.

Insert the cartridge into the correct slot
2.
Push down on the cartridge latch until it snaps closed.

Slide the cartridge into the slot

Close the cartridge latch
6.
Close the product cover.

Step 2: Clean the problem cartridge contacts

1.
Gather the following items to clean the cartridge and carriage:
2.
*
Clean distilled water. Use bottled or filtered water if distilled water is not available. Tap water can contain contaminants that damage the cartridge.
*
Clean cotton swabs or any soft, lint-free material that will not stick to the cartridges (coffee filters work well).
*
Sheets of paper or a paper towel to rest the cartridge on during cleaning.
3.
Open the product cover and wait until the carriage is idle and silent.
4.
Remove the cartridge and place it on a piece of paper with the nozzle plate facing up.

NOTE: Clean the contacts quickly so that the cartridge is not outside of the product for more than 30 minutes. If the cartridge is outside of the product for too long, the ink can dry and clog the nozzles.
5.
Unplug the product from the electrical outlet.
6.
Dip a swab in the clean water and squeeze it to remove most of the moisture. The swab should be only slightly damp.
7.
Clean the cartridge contacts.
CAUTION: Do not touch the ink nozzles.

Cartridge contacts
8.
Clean the contacts in the carriage, inside the product.

Carriage contacts
9.
Either let the cartridge sit for 10 minutes to allow the cleaned area to dry, or use a new swab to dry it.
10.
Reinstall the cartridge.
11.
Reconnect the product to the electrical outlet.
12.
Close the product cover.


Step 3: Repeat reseating and cleaning steps
If the problem is not solved, repeat the reseating and cleaning procedures above.
Step 4: Contact HP
If a cartridge replacement was not tried previously to solve this problem, replace the problem cartridge now. Click here (c00206040) (in English) to see if the cartridge is covered under warranty.
Step 5: Print in backup mode
If you do not have a replacement cartridge, you can still print in ink backup mode. Simply remove the problem cartridge, and print with the remaining cartridge.

*
If you remove the tri-color cartridge, printouts will be in grayscale.
*
If you remove the black or photo cartridge, the product prints slowly and the colors in the printouts might differ.
