Cartridge cradle stuck

I put in a new printer cartridge and thought I had it locked in place. Apparently not because I received a "Cradle cannot move" message and then the (bleep) thing MOVED to the extreme left, out of sight and out of reach to try and reinsert the cartridge. I can just see the extreme right side of the black cartridge and it is not level in the cradle, so I know that's the problem. But how do I get to the cradle? It cannnot move to the right into the open so I can reach it. I hope I've described my problem correctly and thanks in advance for any advice.

    I did forget to mention my printer model in my original post for which I apologise.
    It is an HP Photosmart C3150 All-in-One.

I was able to solve this one myself. This is the HP Photosmart C3150 All-in-one Printer. I removed the two screws that hold the left side of the printer housing and carefully removed it. Looking into the printer I could see the printer cartridge cradle and the black cartridge, on the far side of the cradle, was not level, ie, not locked into place. I carefully inserted a long, thin screwdriver and pressed against the front of the cartridge, pressing it up and back and it snapped into place. Then I replaced the side panel of the printer housing and had a cup of tea.

Hey chips 53 Very simple, Go to the market and purchase a set of screw driver of long sleek neck (for star screw). and open the four screw present four different side in the printer. After open the screw, open that door, from where you insert the cartridge. insert your hand into the printer and lift the portion upside. Remember you have to lift equally (but slowly-slowly) if you see that the upper body is separating, you have to concentrate to lift the portion from right side because wires has been attached left side. After removing the upper portion you can easily move the carriage. And do what you want

WHAT TO DO WHEN I HAVE AN ERROR CODE B200. i CANNOT PRINT AS THE MESSAGE IS CONTACT YOUR SERVICE PROVIDER. IS THERE A WAY I CAN FIX IT MYSELF////


Hi Kathleen,

to clear the Canon B200 error code:

Steps for 4+ Cartridge Printers
  1. Remove All Cartridges. Do whatever is necessary to remove the individual ink cartridges from your printer. In most cases this will be opening the lid of your printer and waiting for the cartridge cradle to move into the correct position.
  2. Remove the Printhead. This is easily achieved in most printers by simply lifting the orange/gray locking lever on the side of the cartridge cradle and then gently lifting the printhead from the printer.
  3. Reinstall the Printhead. Gently put the printhead back into your Canon Pixma printer and lock it into position firmly.
  4. Reinstall All Cartridges. Place all of the cartridges back into the printer and close any open doors. This makes sure that your printer is actively examining the reinstalled cartridges and printhead.
  5. Unplug the Printer. Physically remove your printers plug from the wall and leave it unplugged for 5+ minutes. This allows the printhead to cool and all residual electricity to leave the printer.
  6. Plug the Printer Back.
  7. Do a Nozzle Check or Cleaning Cycle. The B200 error does not tend to occur until your printer actively tries to use the printhead. As such I recommend performing one of these processes in an attempt to confirm the correct cartridge has been replaced.
Steps for 2 Cartridge Printers
  1. Turn the Printer off. When your printer is in this error state it will not let the cartridge cradle within the printer move. However resetting the printer should clear the error message temporarily allowing us to troubleshoot further.
  2. Turn the Printer Back on Again.
  3. Remove the Problem Cartridge. Whilst the Canon Pixma error messages do not tend to specify which cartridge is causing the problem, you should be able to have a rough idea based upon which cartridge was last replaced.
  4. Install a Replacement Cartridge. As the printhead is part of the cartridge, sadly there is no way to stop the B200 error without replacing the cartridge. I would recommend either installing a new cartridge or a previously used cartridge that you know to be functional.
  5. Do a Nozzle Check or Cleaning Cycle. The B200 error does not tend to occur until your printer actively tries to use the printhead. As such I recommend performing one of these processes in an attempt to confirm the correct cartridge has been replaced.
  6. If Necessary Replace the Other Cartridge. If the error persists with the new cartridge, it may be that the other cartridge has developed a fault and is the cause of the B200 support code. If at this point the error remians I can only recommend replacing the other cartridge.

I HAVE PLACED MY BLACK CARTRIDGE IN THE COLOUR SLOT AND IT IS STUCK HOW CSN I GET IT OUT


You may have damaged the Cartridge cradle already, but removing it may also damage the Cartridge cradle. First, inspect the cartridge to make sure there are no plastic clips, etc. blocking the passageway for removing the cartridge. It may take some force, but the cartridge should slide right out. Most HP printer cartridges are similar, if not the same size and shape, so it should come out with ease. You may need to use a flathead screwdriver, taking caution to not break the Cartridge cradle any more than it already may be.

My hp d2360 is not working properly and i bought new cartridge but printer wasnt recognize the cartrige..


Please follow the steps below to install the Cartridge:

Install or replace the print cartridges
  1. Turn the printer on. The cartridge cradle will not move if the power is not on.
  2. Open the printer cover. Figure 1: Printer cover openc00658567.gif
  3. Wait until the print cartridge cradle moves to the center of the printer and is idle and quiet.
  4. If you are replacing a print cartridge, press down on the print cartridge to be replaced, and then slide it out of the print cartridge cradle. If you are installing print cartridges for the first time, go to the next step.
    NOTE: HP recommends using a print cartridge protector to store an opened print cartridge for later use. Figure 2: Print cartridge being inserted into a print cartridge protectorc00658568.gif
  5. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and carefully remove the plastic tape. Hold the print cartridge so that the copper strips are on the bottom and facing toward the printer. Figure 3: Removing the protective tapec00658569.gif
    CAUTION: Do not touch the print cartridge ink nozzles or copper contacts. Touching these parts will result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections. Do not remove the copper strips. They are required electrical contacts. Figure 4: Print cartridge facing upc00658570.gif 1 - Ink nozzles 2 - Copper contacts
  6. Slide the print cartridge at a slight upward angle into the cradle until the cartridge snaps into place. Figure 5: Installing the print cartridgec00658571.gif
  7. Repeat steps 3-4 for the remaining print cartridge.
  8. Close the printer cover. The printer automatically prints a calibration page.

Cartridge cradle can't move, says paper is empty when it's not


OK....try removing the carts, close the printer, turn off, then disconnect...alot of the problems with the newer HP printers has to do with their ROM memory....if that doesn't work, then there is defintely something in the paper path, no matter how small. Try to eliminate the copy function....does the error happen as soon as the printer is finished powering up??

Print cartridge cradle is stuck


Try turning off the printer, disconnect the USB cable, uninstall the printer drivers in "Add and Remove Programs", reinstall the drivers and reconnect the printer. Printer problems are more prolific than any other problem with any other computer accessory. Drivers become corrupt for no apparent reason other than Windows feels like doing it. If this doesn't cure the problem then I would suggest GENTLY trying to dislodge the cartridge cradle just a little bit (don't force it side to side). It shouldn't stick but who knows. If it does move OK again, listen for any odd sounds coming from the printer. My guess is still a software/driver problem.
