Question about HP DeskJet 1200c InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Ink carriage will not move

My wife removed a paper jam in the printer by moving the ink carriage to the right. Now the printer will not respond to any print commands. It will not print out a test page either. Have we damaged the printer, or is this a software problem.

Cartridge jam...cartridge will not move to the left...stays right


turn off the printer and manually move the ink cartridges to the position that you can remove the ink cartridge.
turn on the printer without the ink cartridge. The printer will tell you, you need a ink cartridge, open the printer and insert the ink cartridge as described in the manual.

Epson R320 "General Error" message - unable to clear


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.

Fix 'Carriage Jam' : Open Door, clear carriage jam,
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.

Paper jam cleared but printer does not work


Jalavoie, I don't know if this will be a solution for you but some things to try: I would assume by now you've tried restarting your computer and in turn the printer as well, but have you disconnected the printer from the power. Pull the power lead from the back of the printer wait 30 seconds and replace it. Hopefully this will reset the ink carriage and fix the problem.
Failing that, have you had a GOOD look inside incase there's a bit of paper torn off still there - not necessarily from the one you just removed, it could be from a previous jam.
As you had moved the ink carriage by hand, are you sure you did not bump any of the ink tanks - for surety remove each tank and reseat it. Note:: the ink carriage should never be manually moved.
If none of this helped, can you describe what position the ink carriage is in a and what sounds the printer is making (if any) and exactly which lights are on or flashing.

**.The best way to acknowledge contribution is to rate it's relevance.**

Epson R320 carriage jammed


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.
