SOURCE: scanning problem

Possibly there is a key that locks the engine that moves the scanner lamp, and that key may be locking the engine, and when the scanner try to move the lamp, the locked engine overloads the circuit, and turn off the device. Search for that key, and unlock this, (if it´s really locked).

SOURCE: My cannon pixma ip 1600 keeps giving an error

Hello there
You may not see a paper jam, so this is worth trying.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

What kind of ink I need for canon mg3520 printer

CL-241XL Color Ink Cartridge,

What dos BK and CL lights mean?

BK is the black print head and CL is the color print print head.

HP Envy 4500 series printer has stopped printing, paper comes out blank. It does scan.

I would try looking at the settings, on your ipad or laptop that tell your wireless printer what to do, maybe something has been changed accidentally, and needs to be reset. Also if your broadband configuration has been altered this can cause problems. If you have a laptop try connecting by cable to the printer and then see if it prints OK! if if does it is the broadband as said, and will need to be reinstalled. Good luck.

My printer will not copy

Is this new?
If so unlock the scanner carriage .
Look through your manual

My printers keeps losing its connection to my laptop and Ipad and I have to keep reinstalling every time I want to use them together.

It may be losing its IP address. Check the DHCP address affectation of your router. And leave your printer constantly connected to the router. You should also let your printer get the IP address automatically upon booting.

Our printer will not recognize our memory card. We are inserting it in #3 slot. This card was used in a Cannon EOS 60D camera. It will pull up cards from another camera.

Try reading the card with another device such as a computer card reader, also make sure there isn't some sort of lock switch on the card. If the card will not read in another device it is probably faulty and needs to be replaced.
