Unfortunately, this is a known problem with Lexmark printers. First, try turning the printer upside down and shaking it - it's been known to work. If it didn't help, try cleaning the parts with alcohol solution. Wipe everything inside including the top strip, the metal bar and then pull the ink cartriges out and wipe the copper and the actual cartrige too. And to finish it, hit the side of the printer a couple of times.

your encoder strip(a transprent strip behind the carriage) is either broken or loosed up and so it is not able to get self aligned.kindly fit the encoder properly or change the encoder if neccessary.encoders are usually very cheap.wish u luck!!

This is from Lexmark Tech Chat ((IT WORKED))
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.

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. We will replace the printer, only if it is under warranty.

SOURCE: Carrier jam Lexmark 4300

I had this same problem, I found a long skinny thin plastic strip had fallen off & caused the problem for me. The plastic strip has slits at each side to attach to the inside back of printer, on the left side is a down ward facing arrow, the plastic strip feeds through the back middle of the cartridge carrier and then the slits are to be inserted to the metal tab like pieces on the back sides inside the printer on the right side (facing printer) it will look like a small rectangular hole with a longer metal tab like piece sticking out & on the left is a smaller squared like hole with a flat smaller metal like tab which will line up if the plastic strip is feed through the back of the cartridge carrier properly. This should allow the cartridge carrier to glide properly & work as it should, with no more banging! Sorry my tech. terminology isn't good, I am not Knowelegable with this sort of thing, just sharing my experience :) HTH!

The encoder strip may have become unseated. please follow the steps given below:
The embedded links in the table lead to specific troubleshooting steps.
1 Turn off the printer and disconnect the power cable from the back of the unit.
2 Open the printer's front cover.
Pinch the top of the carrier belt and gently move the cartridge carrier to the center of the printer.
3 On the back of the cartridge carrier, there is a small slot that the encoder strip fits into. Gently push the encoder strip down and back up to get it into the slot. NOTE: If the strip is completely out of the slot, it may be necessary to move it first forward and then back.
4 Move the cartridge carrier back to the left-hand side of the printer with the carrier belt.
5 Reconnect the power supply and turn the printer back on
If the issue persists after you have attempted the steps with a new color cartridge, continue to Contacting Lexmark.

I have the cover open on my canon pixma mx410 cannot seem to figure out how to get the old balck ink cartridge out??


Is the power on? Close the cover (lower the scanning unit by raising it first then let it down gently) and make sure the all-in-one is plugged in. Then turn it on with the power button. Wait for the unit to stop its warm-up and self-test then reopen the cover. The cartridge carrier should move to the installation/replacement position.

Then pinch and lift up on the lid of the right side cartridge cover. (The cover is an angled piece with one side going down into the front of the cartridge carrier; you need to press in enough to get the tab to unlock from the carrier.) Now lift up the current black cartridge.

Unwrap the new cartridge and remove the orange tape. Carefully place the new cartridge into the slot without squeezing it or banging it against the sides of the cartridge slot. (The label should be up and towards the center of the printer.) Then push the locking cartridge cover down until it snaps into position. (Make sure that it is fully down.)

Then close the cover again.

I hope this helps.

(if the cartridge carrier doesn't move when the printer is on, try reaching over and sliding it when the printer is off. Look for foreign objects in the cartridge carrier path and remove anything (including small scraps of paper) that may block the travel. I recommend using a flashlight to check for foreign objects.)

DOESN`T PRINT -


Hello. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Close the cover. Unplug the printer from the power source. Check the inside of the printer where the ink carrier is. Look for anything out of the ordinary (loose strip, belt or springs). If none, close the printer, plug the power, and when the printer's ready, re-insert the cartridges. If printer is still banging the carrier to the sides, it's a hardware/mechanical problem in the printer. If that's the case, I advise you to call Lexmark.

Lexmark x2500 the printer carriage wont stop it knocks on both


Hello. It seems that you have a mechanical/hardware problem in the printer itself. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Unplug the printer from the power source. Plug it back to the power source after 10-15 seconds. When the printer's ready, insert the cartridges and make sure the cartridges are properly seated and locked in the carrier. Make sure there's no foreign objects blocking the carrier. Close the cover. Let it print the alignment page all the way through without cancelling it. If it still makes the banging/knocking sound, I would advise you to call Lexmark. That is a sound of a defective printer already. Good luck!

Epson Stylus Photo RX600: Banging noise when turning on printer


Ok I think this is the cartridge carrier doing the banging I have had this on 2 or 3 epsons that I oncwe owned. If you clean those rails that the cartridge container slides on the banging should cease. Dont need to oil them just a damp cloth will do it. You can try sewing machine oil later. only a very small drop ( smidgen) on a cloth to wipe both rails.
