Question about Canon MultiPASS F80 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

F-80 went to print and the printhead will not move.

Belt is tight and can move printhead by hand with no obstruction but when I press RESUME the printer goes through the motions but when it is time for the printhead to move there is a quick clicking sound like the belt is slipping on the motor spindle. THe printer has been having spells where the printhead would not return to the parked position but I was always able to manually push it into position, unplug the printer and it would fireup and reset the printhead and then everything worked fine until the next time. I like the printer and prefer to fix if possible. Especially since the new printers all have the new non refillable ink tanks.

I have a HP k8600 printer. I changed the black ink cartridge and now it won't print any black, only other colors. What is the solution?


Hi,

Here are some steps that can help you resolve yoour issue.

Make sure that we use a genuine HP ink cartridge

Try printing a diagnostic page from the control panel. Here are the steps:
Press and hold the Power button
Press the Cancel button for seven times
Press the Resume button for 2 times
Release the Power button

If the issue persist
Try Cleaning the printheads. Here are the steps:
Make sure there's unused paper
Press and hold the Power button
Press the Cancel button 2 times
Press the Resume button 1 time
Release the Power button

If still the problem persist try reseating the cartridge
Open the cover
Make sure paper is loaded in the Tray
If the carriage does not move to the left automatically, press and hold the Resume button until the carriage moves to the left. Wait for the carriage to stop moving.
Lift the printhead latch
Lift the handle of a printhead, and use it to pull the printhead out of its slot
Before installing a new printhead, shake the printhead up and down at least six times while the printhead is still in its packaging.
Remove the new printhead from its package, and then remove its orange protective caps, Do not shake printheads after the caps are removed
Insert the printhead into its color-coded slot. Press down firmly on the printhead to ensure proper contact
Pull the printhead latch all the way forward, and then press down to ensure that the latch is properly engaged. You might have to apply some pressure to engage the latch.
Close the cover, wait while the device initializes the printheads and prints the alignment pages

If the problem persiste contact HP support for service.

I hope this will help you resolve the issue.

Canon pixma mp540 error 5100 . What is error 5100?


dear,
Error 5100 points to a "carriage jam"
The carriage is the assembly that contains the printhead and cartridges.
This error can be difficult to solve because various things can cause it.

Since this is a new printer, maybe there is some packing or packing tape that is obstructing the carriage.
Verify that the carts and printhead are installed properly.

Check the gears as best you can for any obstructions.

If the carriage moves to a center position when you open the cover as if to change cartridges, try a reset to clear the error message :

1. Turn off printer (use button, don't unplug)

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.

7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.

8. Your printer should respond as normal

Sometimes you have to try this a couple of times, if you've never done it before.
If this does not work, unplug, wait 3-4 min, then re-plug in. Enjoy..

Print head will not move at all but i can slide it back and forth by hand. and the alarm light flashes and the srceen reads check printer press resume key


This will either be a problem with the printhead drive motor, the ribbon cable going to the printhead, or even worse...a problem with the circuit boards inside the printer. It will need to go into the shop for repair.
