    My printer has started doing this almost every time I print. I press the "ON/Resume" button and it goes ahead and print, but it is getting annoying.

  • Anonymous Mar 03, 2009

    Right, my HP psc 1315 is about five years old. It has been a champion workhorse all of that time. However, lately, it frequently shows an error "print cartridge is stalled." If I press the On/Resume key it prints fine ... it does get annoying.

    The cartridge stalls, and I can press the start/resume button and it does the same thing again. I think it is time for a new printer

Carriage stall.. clear carriage obstruction and press resume...


Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.


Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage.
Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now

If that does not work then follow the next step.


Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

Do both stalls need to contain a cartridge, in order to print?


Hi

Yes you are right both the stalls should contain cartridge. However, it is not necessary that the cartridges should contain ink. One of the cartridges can be empty.

Please put empty cartridge on the carriage, even if you want to print a BW document.

DISK WON'T LOAD, TURN ON AND ALL THE LIGHTS CONSTANTLY BLINK


Clear any paper or carriage path obstructions Right-click the link below to open a new browser window with specific instructions about how to clear paper jams. When you have completed paper jam removal instructions, return to this point in these instructions to continue resolving a carriage stall. Click here for information on resolving paper jams (c00095617).
  1. With the product turned on, open the print cartridge access door. The print carriage might try to move into the access area. If so, allow it to move to that position.
  2. Without turning off the product, unplug the power cord from the back of the product. Unplug the power cord from the power source. The power cord must be unplugged to allow the parts to be moved by hand and to reset the paper feed mechanism, without the risk of an electrical shock.
  3. Looking in through either the print cartridge access door or the output paper tray, make sure the print cartridges are locked into the carriage and have not come loose. Also, make sure that there are no obstructions under or around the carriage to block it from moving.
  4. Make sure the print carriage can move freely across the width of the product by gently pushing the carriage to the left and then to the right. Clear any obstructions found. You may have to reach through the output paper tray to access the print carriage.
  5. Close the print cartridge access door and plug the power cord back to the back of the product. Plug the power cord into the power source.
  6. Press the On button to turn on the product.
Plug the product directly into a wall outlet Follow these steps to make sure that the product is correctly connected to a suitable power source.
  1. Make sure that the computer and the HP All-in-One both have a three-prong power plug.
  2. Remove the power cord from any power strips or surge suppressors, and plug it directly into a grounded wall outlet.
Perform a partial reset A partial reset will return user settings to factory defaults. On some models, language and country/region settings are also reset. Perform a partial reset of the product by following the instructions below.
  1. Unplug the power cord from the unit.
  2. Reconnect the power cord into the unit.
  3. When the lights begin to flash, press and hold the On/Resume and Paper Size buttons.
  4. When only the On/Resume light is flashing, release the buttons. When the On/Resume light is steady, the reset is complete.
  5. Try the print job again to see if this step resolved the issue.
    • If the issue is resolved , you do not need to continue with the rest of the instructions on this page.
    • If the issue is not resolved , continue to the next step.
Remove and re-install the print cartridges Improper placement or installation of the product's print cartridges can cause the product to indicate a carriage stall error condition. Ensure correct installation of the print cartridges by following the instructions below.
  1. With the printer plugged in and turned on, open the cartridge access door (see the illustration). After a moment, the print carriage should come to the center. The print cartridge carriage is the plastic part that holds the print cartridges. When the carriage is at the center of the access area, unplug the printer.
  2. Remove the cartridges from the carriage and check them for damage. Check for obstructions under and around the carriage. Replace any damaged cartridges.
  3. Reinstall the print cartridges.
    • The black or photo cartridge goes on the right.
    • The tri-color cartridge goes on the left.
  4. Close the cartridge access door, plug the printer back in and turn it on.
  5. Try the print job again to see if this step resolved the issue.
    • If the issue is resolved , you do not need to continue with the rest of the instructions on this page.
    • If the issue is not resolved , continue to the next step.
Service the printer If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product.

Stalled printer cartridges


Sounds like an issue with the print carriage. When it's out of alignment and tries to print, it can make awful noises. HP.com has a web page that describes a number of troubleshooting steps when you have print carriage issues:

Carriage Jam Errors

There's also a related web page having to do with the noise coming from the printer:

Noisy Print Carriage

Hope this helps. Good luck.
