Question about HP PSC 1210 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Carriage stalled on hp psc 1200 all in one printer

The power light remains on, the orange lights flash together, print number window displays 'E' .
a small window pops up on the screen
"The print carriage is stalled".
However it is not new so no packaging materials in the way, there is no paper jam, there is no back paper jam, i just refilled the ink, the printer carriage worked fine when i turned it on, but it sounded.. chunky? it was louder when it hit the ends than I assume a printer should be, but this is my first time using it, so im not sure if its just noisy then. It doesnt come to the center when you open the front of the printer, as it should.

I suppose never use a refilled catridge need to check the catridge for any damage and also check the sensor of the printer , incase the sensor is damaged you hear a loud noise.

There is paper in the tray and ink in the printer. When I go to print something, the carriages makes a noise, then the orange light (check paper, check print cartridge) comes on and I can't print


Make sure you don't have a piece of paper inside the machine blocking the carriage, and that the print heads are properly/securely seated in the carriage.

Troubleshooting on hp printer/scanner/copier


Hi,

This looks like either there is an paper jam or carriage jam on the unit,

Check the rare access door weather there is a paper jam.

Remove the cartridges and try moving the carriage( the cartridge hold) left to right and right to left and check if its moving freely.

After these try disconnecting the power cable without turning off the unit and hold the On button for 15 secs and then plug in the power cable while your hold the on button.

This should probably fix the issue.

Please do let me know if there is still an issue.

Paper jam?


Check Paper light flashes but there isn't a paper related problem The check paper light may also flash if there are other problems. Verify the following conditions:
  • Verify that the print cartridge door is closed.
  • The print carriage may be jammed, follow these steps to correct the problem:
    1. Open the print cartridge access door. If the print carriage can move, it should move to center. If the print carriage stays all the way left, unplug the power cord and then plug it back in. This will reset the unit and may allow the print carriage to move from the left.
    2. Disconnect the power cord from the all-in-one.
    3. Remove both print cartridges.
    4. Move the print carriage left and right slightly to verify that the print carriage will move freely. If the print carriage will not move freely, check for obstructions.
    5. Close the print cartridge access door.
    6. Plug the power cord back in.
    7. After the all-in-one initializes, the print cartridge light will flash. Open the access door and install the print cartridges.
    8. Close the print cartridge access door. If the problem returns, remove the print cartridges and wipe the electrical contacts before reinstalling them.
  • Try to make a copy. If the all-in-one pulls in paper but cannot make a copy, there may be a problem with the scanner mechanism. Contact HP for assistance.
