SOURCE: Clear Carrier Jam + Right Cartridge Incorrect

aussie_jay09,

If your printer is brand new, just out of the box, than repack the printer back in the box and march it right back to where you purchased it from. Your printer is classed under manufacturer criteria as DOA, which means dead on arrival. It is nothing you are doing, the printer is simply faulty and needs to be returned to your supplier for exchange. It happens sometimes and I am sorry you are on the receiving end.

To be more technical about it, from what you are saying it sounds as though you have a faulty print mechinism. This is the central core part of the printer and I have seen this issue on many occasions.

    Is there an auto correction feature


    The key to the right of the spacebar with the "X" printed on it is the correction button. You just place the carrier on the character to the right of the wrong one and hit the corr. button. The carrier should automatically back up and and remove the incorrect character and if you hold the key down it will continue to back up and remove characters. then you just type in the right one(s). Of course you have to have good "correctable" ribbon and correction tape cartridges installed. If the tapes are old you may have to advance them by typing and correcting or by manually advancing them before they will work. If the correction doesn't remove all the ink from the paper you may have a bad ribbon and/or correction tape.

    Just tried installing a new photo31 ink cartridge and I am getting right cartridge incorrect message.


    If you are using a photo cartridge, in your case the #31 cartridge, insert that in the left carrier where the black cartridge is. Make sure your color cartridge is inserted in the right carrier to continue printing.

    How do I install the printer cartrige? I do not have the booklet...


    1. Turn on your printer.

    2. Open the front cover.

    The ink cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position unless the printer is busy.

    1. Press the tabs on the cartridge lids, then lift the lids.

    1. Remove the old ink cartridges.

    1. Store the cartridges in an air-tight container or dispose of them properly.

    2. If you are installing new ink cartridges, remove the sticker and transparent tape from the back and bottom of each ink cartridge.


    NOTE: You can use your printer with one cartridge (color or black) at a time. To extend the life of your color cartridge and improve printing speed, install both a color cartridge and a black cartridge at the same time.
    1. Insert the new ink cartridges. Make sure the color ink cartridge is secure in the left ink cartridge carrier and the black ink cartridge is secure in the right ink cartridge carrier.

    1. Snap each lid closed.

    1. Close the front cover. The front cover must be closed to start a print job.

    1. Open the Dell Printer Solution Center by clicking Start® Programs or All Programs® Dell Printers® Dell Photo Printer 720® Dell Printer Solution Center.

    2. Click the Maintenance tab.

    3. Click Install a new print cartridge.

    4. Click Next.

    5. Select the type of cartridge you installed.

    NOTE: Specify whether the cartridge is a new cartridge or an old cartridge (one that has been used before). If an old cartridge is incorrectly identified as New Cartridge in the Dell Printer Solution Center, ink levels may be incorrect.
    1. Click Next.

    Lexmark 2400 has message saying clear carrier then press start


    Good day Sir, Please check the power switch light if blinking.

    • power light blinking slow - printer is out of paper.
    • power light blinking fast - there is paper jam in paper.
    • once, pauses and blinks again - raise the scanner unit, and remove any objects blocking the path of the printer cartridge carrier. Or the print cartridge is missing/ not installed properly. Or the printer cartridge is not the correct type for the printer.
    Have a nice day.

    Hp psc 2110 incorrect ink cartridge message.


    when ever i get that message it's when i use a "Non-HP" replacement cartridge...try using a HP catridge, or most likely, the printer has reached the end of it's usefull life!

    you can try a "full reset" of the printer by..
    -unplug it and let sit for a little while,
    -BEFORE plugging it back in, press and hold both the enter and cancel buttons,
    -plug the power cord in, and wait to release the buttons until the display on the printer tells you to,
    -in many cases, this corrects some problems (especially that awfull grinding/ratcheting noise).
    after many years of faithful service, i think mine is officially dead though...even the full resxet doesnt help.
