Print cartridge carrier for HP C3100 is stuck

I have an HP C3100 all in one printer, scanner, copier, about 2.5 years old, connected to a Mac. Both the check paper and check print cartridge lights are blinking, and it will not print, scan or copy. In trying to troubleshoot the print cartridge, I see that the carrier and cartridges are stuck way over to the left of the printer. I cannot access them. Turning the printer on and off results in some clicking noises, and I can see that the carrier is trying to move over to the right, but it is stuck over in the left, inaccessible.

How do i install mt inks


Please follow the steps below on how to install/replace ink cartridges on your model:
  1. Make sure the All-In-One is on.
  2. Lift the scanner unit until the scanner support keeps it open. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position unless the All-In-One is busy.
  3. Grasp the tabs on the cartridge lids, and then lift the lids.
  4. Remove the old cartridges. Store them in an air-tight container or dispose of them.
  5. If you are installing new cartridges, remove the stickers and transparent tape from the bottom of the cartridges.
  6. Insert the new cartridges. Make sure the black print cartridge is secure in the right carrier and the color cartridge is secure in the left carrier, and then snap the lids closed.
  7. Lift the scanner unit and push the scanner support back while lowering the scanner unit until it is completely closed.

Sometimes the ink cartridge carrier won't automatically move to its loading position even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Follow the steps below:


1. Unplug the printer from the power source.

2. With the cover open, hold the solid white strip that connects from the carrier assembly to the ink cartridge carrier and gently slide the cartridge carrier to the center of the printer.

3. Remove the used cartridges.

4. Load the new cartridges. Close the cover.

5. Plug the printer back to the power source.
