If you have not broked anything, it will go in.
Also check the manual that came with the printer How to install the cartridge.

When printing it starts to print then the cartrideges slam back and forth then it errors


Open the printer cover and access the cartridge area. Remove the cartridges. Check the transparent strip(encoder strip) and make sure it's not unseated from its position. If it is, - Switch off the printer. - Slide the cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer by taking the top part of the belt and moving it gently to the right. - Place an index finger on the encoder strip on either side of the cartridge carrier. The encoder strip is a clear strip running the length of the printer, above or behind the cartridge carrier. - On the back of the cartridge carrier, there is a small slot that the encoder strip fits into. Slightly push the encoder strip down and then back up to get it into the slot. - Then lightly press the strip first to the rear and then forward, if necessary.
Try to print again.

Paper jam cleared but wont start


  1. Unplug the power cable.
  2. Check to see if the print cartridge carriage can move freely from one side of the printer to the other. If the carriage is to the right and out of plain view, skip to Step five . Do not try to force it to move if it is hung up on something. NOTE: Be careful not to force the print cartridge carriage. If the carriage is stuck, forcing it to move will damage the printer.
    • If the carriage moves freely, skip to Step five .
    • If the carriage does not move, continue with the next step below.
  3. Remove the print cartridges.
  4. Gently move the print cartridge to the far right of the printer.
  5. Remove the paper from the paper In tray, but do not remove the drawer.
  6. Remove the rear access door.
  7. With your fingers, rotate the rollers "up" three full rotations.
  8. Push the rear access door back into the printer until it snaps firmly into place.
  9. Replace the print cartridges.
  10. Plug the power cable into the HP All-in-One.
  11. Turn the power on.
Step five: Reload and test the printer Once the jammed paper is removed, verify that the printer is still functioning properly.
  1. Reload the printer with plain paper.
  2. Perform a self-test by pressing and holding the Resume button until the printer starts printing. A test page should print.
Step six: Service the printer Perform all the steps mentioned above. If problem persists, service the printer.

Printer says to change the black cartridge BUT the cartridge carrage is way to the left and won't move to the right so I can get at the black cartereridge. Service # B017869

IF you need to print urgently

Open the access door > Disconnect the power cord > Then connect is back > As soon as the carriage comes in middle > again disconnect the power cord > You'll be able to change the ink cartridges

Indicating a carrage problem, carrage going to fast and slaming into one on start up


The encoder strip is most likely the problem. Unplug the power from the printer. Open the front cover and move the cartridge carrier to the center. You should see a white ribbon cable, a thin plastic strip and a black belt with teeth.
The thin plastic strip is the encoder strip. It rides in a sensor on the back of the cartridge carrier that you will not be able to see. Reach in with the first finger of either hand and carefully strum the strip as if playing a guitar.
The strip will need to be lowered slightly and brought towards you slightly. Please be careful not to break the strip or your printer will not function. Once you believe the strip is set correctly, plug the power back and try printing the self test. If it slams to the left again, the strip is not yet set correctly.
If you cannot repair the strip, please let us know so that we can assist you further.
Please Note: Fixing the encoder strip is a delicate procedure. During the troubleshooting, if the strip breaks, you will not be able to use the printer.

try this printer self-test by following the steps given below:
1. Please press the "Options" button 10 times. "Cartridges" should now appear in the display screen.
2. Press the "Left Arrow" button once, which then brings you to the "Self-Test" option.
3. Press the "Select" button once. You will hear a series of clicks.
4. It should print out a sheet of paper with horizontal color and black lines and smaller vertical lines.
You should see text followed by a thick 1-inch black bar. Under this bar, should be a process gray bar about ½-inch thick. Below this line should be a set of railroad like bars of cyan, magenta, and yellow.
Should this test fail, try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with the color cartridge installed. (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed.) If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let us know.
If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, please let us know. This includes any print quality issues, we need to know if the problems you have with your black or color are based in the printer, or communications with your computer, or the computer's software.
If the self-test prints your test bar(s) clearly, the printer hardware is not at fault.

Epson SX200 Can't get the ink carrage to addopt change position


i had the same problem as this.

the manuel told me to put the ink in the printer before i had installed it, this however seems impossible.

instal your printer first. when it is instaled go to printer settings, then click on maintenance, then click on the option that says ink cartridge replacement. Follow the instructions and this will bring the cartridge to the change position!!

failing this you can unplug your printer quickly after you turn it on when the cartridges move, then you can manualy move into position. Not sure how good for your printer this is, but it works.

Cartridge jam won't clear HP 5610v


I had the same problem and just got it to work. go to
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00577763&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&rule=22243&product=441125

go to the section "Moving the carriage" turn on printer and then unplug power. If you still cant move the carrage then remove both toner cartridge and all the trays. Then completely disconnect printer and stand it upright (so paper feed and cartridge tray is on top) Look thru the paper feed area to the left side of toner carrage and you will see a little plastic tab around the bottom back of the carrage. That tab is suppose to be inside a track on the bottom of the carrage. I think that when we put in or took out toner we must have pushed it to hard and that piece jumped out of the track and has "locked" the carrage. I just pushed the carrage up carefully and used a letter opener to move the plastic tab back into place (tab is spring loaded) print working fine now. Hope this solves your problem
