Carriage hits the right inside of printer - will not print


if the lights are flashing along together there is a cariage stall. The ink cartridge craddle is hitting something. Find out what and remove it if doesn't belong there. First of all remove and reinsert both cartridges. One of them may be inserted wrong.

Flashing resume light also can mean:

2. cartridge is out of ink
3. dirty cartridge contacts
4. paper jammed

Check are cartridges firmly snapped into place and not empty. Use water to wash copper on cartridges if contacts are dirty.
