Try unplugging the ac adapter from the printer the leave if "off" for 30 sec. After that, power "on" then try again, if it doesnt go to the center, try unplugging the ac adapter again then connect after 15 sec w/ the access door open once you see the carriage pass the center try unplugging the adapter again. If after doing this the carriage is still jammed call tech support at 1 800 421 6699

"Print carrier stall"?


Error 0502-Carrier Stall indicates a physically blocked carrier. This condition can occur for many possible reasons. Most often, the carrier is blocked because the ink cartridge lids are open while the printer is on (Figure 1).

Reseat the Ink Cartridges and Make Sure the Lids Are in Place
