Question about Lexmark X1150 All-In-One InkJet Printer
PRINTER KEEPS SAYING "PAPER JAM", THEN THE INK CARTRIDGES SOUND REALLY REALLY ROUGH...
Hi, I have a Lexmark X1150. When I turn on the printer, the cartridge-holder keeps slamming forth and back. From the left side back to the right side. It makes an incredible hard noise and I am not even able to print! Then it goes to the "stand-by"-modus. I have searched my entire printer. I have not found any obstacles.
I've unplugged it from my computer, took out the cartridges and turned it on. The problem still stood, so there could be nothing wrong with my computer/software/USB-cable connection.
Sometimes it successfully turns on, but then when I hit "Print", the same problem repeats again.:S
The installed software suggests me to look inside the printer, checking the cartridges, connections etc. etc. I have done everything they asked but it still won't work! Could somebody help me out or give me some advice?
Thanks in advance.

"Carrier stall" Error and the Carrier Slams in the Printer
If the printer carrier is slamming into the side of the printer, please try the following:

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.
