    Thanks so much...but, the carriage seems to be locked. I just got the top plastic cover off...but, can find a "release" switch.

    Again...i really appreciate the help!

    Thanks! I was able to find a squareish white, nylon latch...released! Now...the job is to get it all synced up again!

If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your Epson printer with no tasks in progress, then check for any piece of paper stuck in the carriage. Remove the paper carefully. If the paper tears, part of it might remain inside the paper path and damage the product.

and then press OK to continue' error message
Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.
Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side.
Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path.
Reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer.

The ink cartridge is probably not inserted correctly.  Unplug the printer and manually move the carriage to a location where you can take the ink cartridge out.
 
Remove it and reinsert it, making sure that it is fully located, before applying the power.
 
Make sure that there is nothing blocking the carriage movement, such as some remnant of paper.

Ink cartridge slams from side to side and lights


Epsons often experience this odd problem. This is a sort of tempory fix.
turn printer on allow carriage to leave its base and disconnect the power cord.


Clean the rails the cartridges run on. You should notice the cloth comes away with black stuff.
Use a small amount of sewing machine oil on a cloth and wipe the rails again ( or small amount of wd40 on a cloth.

Slide the carriage along and back a few times. then return it to home and reconnect power cord and turn on. That should get it to behave for a few more weeks/months. If it continues, then the head is damaged and will have to be renewed or buy a new Canon Printer. ( NOT EPSON)
