Question about Canon BJC S800 InkJet Printer

Open Question

It is stuck!!

I was performing a routine cleaning when it suddenly stoped followed by a "grinding" noise, almost like a car's start engine. The indicator light is blinking 4 oranges between 2 long green ones (replace empty ink), but the cart doesn't move to the center, neither make a noise. Every time it is powered on it makes the noise. I try to reset: 1) Power off printer 2) Hold RESUME button then press and hold POWER. (The beeper MAY sound once, or may not depending on your model.) 3) Hold POWER and Release RESUME. 4) Press RESUME twice then release both POWER and RESUME buttons. 5) When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME 4 times (for the S900, 3 times for the 8200 apparently). 6) Press power to set data. It still refuse to move. Is there hope for it? It has been the best printer we ever owned.

Hi
Problem for Canon BubbleJet i560 InkJet
The waste ink is in the inside of your printer you need to get at it to clean out,
It may be all screwed down so you need to open all up or get a shop to do it for you.
It not an easy job but maybe you are handy with a screwdriver, it can be messy job.
But after this, you will have to reset the waist ink counter or it will still not work,

But but but but you can always try this to reset it first and clean it out again some time.

2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.

I have a 2000 ford f350 7.3 i was driving home and all the sudden i herd a loud grinding noise and then something broke and klanged and banged for a sec then stoped know i have a random grinding sound whie...

check for broken suspension components. Shouldn't be hard to find the culprit, if it is grinding it is making metal shavings and should be able to look for shiney metal parts.

HP 1720 I making a noise when printing.

Troubleshootinggtabtop.gif
    NOTE: Refer to the Testing section in this document for instructions on performing the tests.
  1. Turn the printer off, and then turn the printer on. The grinding or squeaking noise should not occur while the printer is initializing.
  2. Perform a paper path test. The grinding or squeaking noise should not occur because the carriage should not be moving.
  3. Perform a self-test to localize the noise.
  4. Check the printer for obstructions by lifting the top cover and making sure nothing is blocking the carriage movement.
  5. Check the paper path by following the instructions below:
    1. Remove all media from Trays 1, 2, and 3.
    2. Pull out any visible stuck paper.
    3. Lift the top cover, and pull out any jammed paper.
    4. If you are unable to free the jammed paper, pull out the handle of the paper knob, pull the knob away from the printer, and rotate it to remove the paper.
    5. Lower the rear access door by lifting up on the two rear door latches.
    6. Remove the back panel by pushing the two catches inward.
    7. Pull out any paper that may be stuck inside.
  6. Wipe down the milky white strip (see Figure 1) that the front of the carriage glides on with a clean, soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
