After typing first line, hit the return key. The carriage would not return to the far left margin...it only moved 12 or so spaces to the left.


The carrier slides on a silver shaft that is about 1/2" thick spray some WD40 on the shaft, if that doesn't do it you have to get some on the carrier motor bearings located under the case in the R. rear corner.

This section describes the procedures for transporting the printer for returning after repair, etc.
1) In the service mode, press the Power button to finish the mode, and confirm that the paper lifting plate of the sheet feeder unit is raised.
2) Keep the print head and ink tanks installed in the carriage.
[See Caution 1 below.]
3) Turn off the printer to securely lock the carriage in the home position. (When the printer is turned off, the carriage is automatically locked in place.)
[See Caution 2 below.]
4) To further secure the carriage to prevent movement from the home position during transportation, make and use a fixing tool in the following procedures:
i. Fold an A4-sized paper 5 times, and wrap it twice with tape, as shown in Figure A below (to prevent the fixing tool from caught into the inside of the
printer).
ii. Insert the fixing tool between the carriage and the main case unit, and securely fix it with tape, as shown in Figures B and C below.
Note: The tape should be similar to the polyester tape used at shipment, which will not easily be torn or removed, or leave adhesive on the unit when
removed.

Carriage return problem


If it returns with the express key the latching mech. on the rt. side is probably gummy. Take off the case, get some WD40 and spray the mechinism that latches the ret on the rt. side below the platen.
