Hardware Error 03130031 2f52

Turn off the printer and open the printer back door. Use a spot light and give look inside properly. Make sure there no paper. Some time small part of the paper creates the problem. So you can do one thing after open the back door, top side etc make the printer upside down etc. So if anything inside that's will come out. After cleaning again connect it with PC and turn on. Now give a look. If you face same problem then Un-install the printer driver and software from the PC. Then restart the PC and Printer both. Now connect the Printer with PC via USB and install again the driver & software. Then try to print and let me know the result.

How do i fix a cartridge jam?

Hi andmary,
While using the HP Photosmart C4180, the printer may display error messages. These messages alert you, as the printer's user, to any problems affecting the printer's performance. The printer can display the message "Carriage Blocked" on the printer's display screen, stopping any current print jobs and preventing you from printing anything until you resolve the problem. The error message can be caused by an actual obstruction, such as a stuck piece of paper, keeping the cartridge carriage from moving freely inside the printer. Sometimes the error is a result of a software error.

1. Turn off the printer, wait 15 seconds, then turn it back on. Press the "Setup" button on the control panel, then use the arrows to highlight "Print Report" and press the "Ok" button to print a self-test page.
2. Remove all the loose paper from the printer's input tray. Turn off the printer and open the back door by depressing the tab on the left side.
3. Pull out any stuck paper, being sure to turn the rollers to check for small pieces of paper. Close the back door and open the printer's front door.
4. Remove any stuck paper from the printer. Move the cartridge carriage from the left to the right side of the machine, removing anything that stops the carriage's movement.
5. Push down on each cartridge, then pull each one out of its slot. Replace the cartridges in their slots, then push forward on them until they each click into place.
6. Plug the printer back in and turn it on, then unplug the printer's power cord from the back of the machine and the electrical outlet. After at least 15 seconds, plug the power cord back in and turn the printer back on. If the problem persists, take the printer to a repair shop.

Hope this helps.
Thank you for using Fixya!

Error Message: Fuser door open

You have to look on the sides of the printer where the door closes. Here it should be a mechanical sensor. Make sure that it closes properly to sense the door is closed. If it doesn't, it needs to be replaced. More exactly, it's a sensor underneath the fuser door activated by a plastic arm, which is difficult to see. This sensor has a spring arm against which the plastic arm pushes and you have to bent the spring arm out just for a second so that the sensor can activate by itself.

I hope I helped you!

I have a DELL 968 printer. Initially I was getting an error message "printer carrier stall". I was told to clean the encoder strip by using a lint free cloth. I have done this, but there is still...

1).check the conectivity for carrage cable if you found a any point is brocken then you should have to change the carrage assembly(cartage cardel),.
2).if after clining of encoder stripe its stucking to right or left side then change the encoder stripe.
3).check the logic card connection and if needed make dry soldring.

ImageCLASS 2300 not printing, check printer cover message

Had the same problem spent 2 hours opening and closing everything trying to reset turn off and on etc. Here is how I fixed it, slammed all the doors on left side starting with above cartridge to cartridge door and 2 little doors by paper hard - and I mean hard - and whammo error cleared immediately. Sensors that check for open door obviously stick and report they are open when they are really closed. I am sure this saved me an expensive service call.

The resume button keeps flashing even after I shut off printer, and won't allow me to print. I turned off and on the printer several times. I don't get an error message. All ink is OK.

Make sure the ink cartridge cover is properly closed.

My sister's printer had a similar problem and on initial inspection the cover seemed to be closed, however a small bit of the plastic clip that holds the cover closed had snapped off and therefore wasn't holding the cover properly closed and the sensing micro switch that tells the printer the hatch is closed wasn't being activated.

Not very scientific and a bit of a bodge, but some suitably placed selotape / duct tape / insulating tape to hold the cover firmly closed did the trick.

Hope this helps.

Photosmart D7360 error message 0xc18a0001 ink system failure.

It doesn't work like that with turn on the printer and etc..., etc..., you have to disassemble the printer of the sides to the write head after that u have to do 2 steps:

1. The green wire from the left side grab outside then turn on the printer
immediately turn off. Put the green wire bag on it's place.

2. On the right side on the motherboard u will found 2 white cable very thin, grab outside and turn on the printer,
immediately turn off. put the 2 cable back on it's places and turn on again the printer. Now it should work.

It works for me like that. Try and tell me if works for u too. See ya!
