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!!

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.

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.
