The cassette tray motor might is more than likely damaged, and will need to be replaced. Before you go this route, make sure there is no debris inside the unit, causing it not to eject all the way. Unfortunately, this is not a cheap fix. The XL1S parts are not cheap, and they are labor intensive. So be prepared to shop around to get the best price.

Hope this helps some.

Checking the ink levels
  1. Open the HP Director .
  2. Click Settings , point to Print Settings , and then click Printer Toolbox .
  3. After the Printer Toolbox opens, click the Estimated Ink Level tab.
  4. For information on obtaining replacement cartridges, click Print Cartridge Ordering Information .
Replacing the print cartridges
  1. Make sure the HP all-in-one is on. WARNING: If the HP all-in-one is off when the print-carriage access door is lifted to access the print cartridges, the HP all-in-one will not release the cartridges for changing. Damage may occur to the HP all-in-one if the print cartridges are not docked safely on the right side when you try to remove them.
  2. Open the print-carriage access door by lifting from the front center of the device, until the door locks into place. The print carriage is on the far right side of the HP all-in-one. c00228292.jpg 1 - Print carriage access door 2 - Print carriage
  3. When the print carriage is idle and silent, press down on the end of each cartridge to snap it out of the carriage. If replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left. If replacing the black or photo cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right. c00228293.jpg 1 - Print cartridge slot for the tri-color print cartridge 2 - Print cartridge slot for the black and photo print
  4. Gently pull the print cartridge toward you, out of its slot.
  5. If removing the black print cartridge to install the photo or gray photo print cartridge, store the black print cartridge in the print cartridge protector.
  6. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch only the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab. CAUTION: Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or ink nozzles. Touching these parts can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections. c00228294.jpg 1 - Copper-colored contacts 2 - Plastic tape with pink pull tab (must be removed before installing) 3 - Ink nozzles under tape c00228295.jpg
  7. Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Push the print cartridge forward until it clicks into place. If the print cartridge you are installing has a white triangle on its label, slide the print cartridge into the slot on the left. The label for the slot is green with a solid white triangle on it. If the print cartridge you are installing has a white square or a white pentagon on its label, slide the print cartridge into the slot on the right. The label for the slot is black with a solid white square and a solid white pentagon on it. c00228296.jpg
  8. Close the print-carriage access door. c00228297.jpg

I wasn't able to pull all of the white tape surrounding the staples out when I loaded the staples. Now, the copier is saying that we need to load staples. How can I open the holder to remove the tape?


You have to be careful. Remove the bottom of the cartridge by releasing the four clips that hold it on. Make sure you put the little lever looking part in correctly when you reassemble. This is how the finisher determines the out of staples indication. Remove the staples and put them back in with the arrow aligning with the clear arrow on the cartridge.

On my Moen shower facet


There is a small "U" type clip that comes down in front area to hold it in, I assume that has been removed. The new cartridge should have come with a small tool (usually plastic) that you put over the cartridge, push it in, and turn the body of the cartridge, and it should start to ride up on higher brass sleeve and start to pull itself out. If you look at vertical part of cartridge, it is sitting back in on low spot of the sleeve. That tool, or a pair of strong needle nose pliers,needs to be against the sides of the vertical part of the cartridge, in such a way that when you rotate the cartridge, it rides up on higher part of sleeve, and pulls itself outward.

How do you remove printer heads on cx3200


The two clips that swing down and hold the ink cartridges can be easily removed without breaking anything or removing screws. Look at the hinge points and use a screwdriver to gently pry one hinge of each clip out and the clips will simply lift out. But after that there are 2 small screws that hold the print heads in that ink cartridge carriage. Remove them and keep track of them. The white clip positioned in the color ink cartridge bay helps to hold the ribbon cable in place, but once you see what will move in regard to the print head, you can loosen the white clip and the print head should lift up. In this way, conceivably, the CX3200 print head should detach from the ribbon cables (there are 2) and a new one goes in its place. I'm dealing with a friend's CX3200 that the black is not printing and I'm cleaning it out and finding a lot of dried sticky ink. Probably used until dry or refilled the cartridge with the wrong type of black ink.

Hp laserjet 6l pulling more paper through than it should. new roller not available?


Thanks to Dewaine Chan for providing these instructions on how to get at the separation pad
http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/bizsupport/questionanswer.do?threadId=964548&admit=109447626+1263780058294+28353475

1). Open the printer cover and remove the Toner cartridge. Remove the two silver screws at the top of the printer (One on each side).
2). Remove the three screws holding the Back cover piece. Pull the back Paper Guide in the Up position. Use a small flat head screw driver to loose to two latches through the opening. After that, you will need to use the same screw driver to loose the latches holding the back cover in place. There are at least two at each side.
3). Remove the back cover after you have released all the latches.

4). Turn the printer over and remove the memory slot cover by press on the latch.

5). Open the front cover. There are two latches (one at each corner) at the front bottom. You need to gently release them. After that, you should be able to slide the cover upward and off.

6). At the right side toward the top, you will see a spring clip pushing a white latch in place. Use the needle nose to remove it.

7). Use the needle nose to slightly pull the white color latch and turn it counter clock wise to release it. Please note how it is put in place. Pull it out after you have unlatched it.

8). Move to the left side. Press on the two latches to remove the Clutch gear assembly and slide it out. Please note this assembly has two unequal slots.

9). Now you have freed up the Pick Up roller assembly, you need to slide this assembly out from the right side first. Fiddle with it a bit to get it out.

10). Pull the paper guide up upward to remove it.

11). Push on the Kick plate to release it and then swing it upward to slide it out be careful not to loose the spring.

12). Unlatch the separation pad clip from the back and lift it up.

13). Unlatch the Separation Pad and get it up to remove it. Replace it with the new one.

14). Use a small flathead screw driver to remove the two sub pads and replace them with new one.

15). Do everything in reverse order.


I read an on another post to use cork gasket material and double sided tape to replace the pad, and this worked great. You can buy a roll at autozone for about $6. I didn’t do the small pads, that is optional.

Toner light


I taped a very small white piece of paper over the sensor eyes on either side of the cavity where the cartridge fit. I read that coloring in the actual "windows" that are on either side of cartridge also may help so I did that too.

So open the front, remove cartridge, look on the cartridge for a small circle and color them with black marker (or use electrical tape), look where they would have aligned inside the cavity, tape a small piece of white paper over those sensor eyes.

I just did this and it stopped the blinking. Don't know how long but based on my reading, one of these was the trick.

Tape Jam


There may be a small piece of label cutting stuck in the gears. remove the label cartredge, you will see a white gear set between the pinch wheel and the print head. Use a micro drive or something strong and give the gears a little help while pushing the print button. You may have to do this several times. Be careful not to use too much force as this may knock a tooth off. Good luck. My Dymo continues to print prefet labels.

Marantz Cassette Deck Model Sd 35 Tape door will not open


It sounds like the drive belts on the deck have broken (not allowing playing, FF or REW) and/or the tape got "eaten" meaning the tape itself has wound itself around the rollers and cannot free itself. I strongly doubt this is an electrical issue. Definately sounds mechanical.

As far as the door not opening, there's usually a hook that holds the door closed. If the unit is mostly disassembled, look near one of the sides of the door for a metal hook. It's normally spring loaded and can be moved manually. That should free the door. If your tape was eaten, it might take some gentle persuasion to unwrap it from the rollers.

Good luck.

VCR eats tape when rewinding


A couple of possibilities: 1. Braking problems: When VCR goes from FFWD, REW, Play to stop, there are a pair of "brake pads" engaged to stop the reels, and prevent tape spillage out into the machine. These pads, often rubber like, are on levers which contact one side of each reel. If you take the cover off the VCR, and look down where the tape is loaded, you will like see these brake assemblies. If the rubber pad is missing, or lever pivot points gummied up, then this is your issue. 2. Take up reel isn't being engaged to take up the tape on tape eject. When a tape is loaded into the machine, tape is pulled from the cartridge and threaded into play ready position. When eject mode is engaged, the tape must be pulled back into the cartridge, or you will have tape hanging out the front end of the cartridge, and may get caught on the VCR internals, or at least be mangled by the cartridge door. The often issue here is likely the idler assembly pivot point is sticky. This idler pivots, moving from the take-up reel (right reel) to the supply reel reel (left one), depending on what mode is selected. FFWD & play to the right, left for REW. If this idler is gummed up at it's pivot point, movement will be sluggish at best, and might not be engaging the right reel quickly enough to pull tape in before tape eject. This idler is sitting right between the reels down where the tape sits. A little light oil on the pivot point may be enough to loosen it up. Otherwise it might need to be removed and the old grease removed, and a drop or two of light oil applied.
