HELP! i HAVE A DELL ALL IN ONE PRINTER 942. Error 2200 has come up. Printer/Carrier Stalled

I have a Dell All in One Printer 942. Error 2200 has come up. Carrier is stalled. I already tried unplugging it. That didn't work. I don't want to have to uninstall the printer and re-install if it won't work. And that advice from what I can see in the forum DOES NOT WORK.

Help! I need my printer.

T. Goodman,

I replied to your other post.

The 2200 error message indicates a scanner stall or jam.  The steps below will help you to resolve the issue and clear the error message.

 

Printer Reset

 

 

 
1 Power off the All-In-One (AIO) and remove the power supply from the back of the unit.  Wait 30 seconds.  Then reinsert the power supply and power the AIO on.

 

Did the error message return?

 

Yes: Continue to step 2.


No: Attempt a test scan.  If the error message does not reappear, the error is resolved.


 
2 Power off the AIO and remove the power supply from the back of the unit.  Open the scanner cover. Check the scanner glass for cracks and the scanner casing for cracks.  Close the scanner lid. Open the top cover of the AIO. Using the carrier belt, move the cartridge carrier to the middle of the unit. Remove both cartridges, close the top cover, reinsert the power supply, and power the AIO on.

 

Did the error message return?

 

Yes: contact Dell.
No: Continue to step 3.


 
3 Power off the AIO and remove the power supply from the back of the unit.  Open the top cover of the AIO. Using the carrier belt, move the cartridge carrier to the middle of the unit.  Insert the color cartridge, close the top cover, reinsert the power supply, and power on the AIO.

 

Did the error message return?

 

Yes: Repeat step 3 with another color cartridge.  If the printer fails again, continue to step 4.


No: Repeat step 3 and install the black/photo cartridge.  If both cartridges are installed, attempt a test scan.  If the error message does not reappear, the error is resolved.


 
4 Power off the AIO and remove the power supply from the back of the unit.  Open the top cover of the AIO. Using the carrier belt, move the cartridge carrier to the middle of the unit. Remove the color cartridge and insert the black/photo cartridge. Then close the top cover, reinsert the power supply, and power the AIO on.

 

Did the error message return?

 

Yes: Repeat step 4 with another black/photo cartridge.  If the printer fails again, contact Dell.


No: Install the color cartridge.  If the printer fails, contact Dell. If the error message does not appear with both cartridges installed, attempt a test scan.  If the error message does not reappear, the error is resolved.

None of this advice was useful. It did however beat the advice was given previously to reinstall the AIO.

Clearly this is a mechanical issue.  A friend is now taking it home to see if he can do anything with it. He is a tech person.

Truly, before you give this advice again to someone else, check it out.

It is worthless. And several people on this forum have already told you that-because I looked.
