Question about Epson Stylus CX6400 All-In-One InkJet Printer
My Epson printer which worked perfectly until recently , now doesnt even start up properly and a grinding noise comes from the unit (seems to be the belt that pulls the printing section along the rail). The message displays nothing useful - just to call technical support. Printer is over 3 years old and no warranty available. Any ideas ?
Where is this photo sensor

The head assembly is attached to a photo sensor that tells the printer when it is at the ends of its travel.
Sounds like this mechanism is not working properly.
Check to make sure thare is no obstructions or dirt in the paths at the ends of the print head travel.
You can use an air gun to clean the printer (JUST KEEP IT AWAY FROM THE PRINTER CARTRIDGES) as the ink will FLY EVERYWHERE.....

Hi, below the belt that pulls the head from left to right is a 'bail bar' which the head moves along. Put a little light oiul on the bar, check for any bits of paper jammed in the mechanism which may be obstrucring the print head.
Also check that the bushes which support the print head haven't been dislodged. You can tell because there will be a strange looking doughnut type thing sitting and looking lost on the bail bar. you can usually just push this back into place on the side of the print head.
