This error code is commonly associated with the Dell 922 printer. Usually you might see the cartridge moving front and back and slamming itself against the printer. You need to tighten the strings located on the back of the printer and then it should work fine

Clean the carriage rail. This is the round chrome piece that the carriage assy that holds the cartridges rides on. Use a paper towel that is slightly moist.
Be sure to not force anything. Unplug the printer after you get the carts in the middle. Move them to one side and clean and then move them to the other and repeat.


Lift up the scanner to reveal the cartridge compartment; under the chrome rod on which the cartridges run there are two small gaps about 8cm apart. In the right one should sit the paper sensor which is a small black rod that hooks downwards; the problem I had was my sensor had bent up and out of the gap so all I had to do was bend it gently back into position using a small screwdriver.

Hope you get it to go.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

THE UNIT SHOWS ERROR CODE 1200


The 1200 error is caused by a cartridge carrier stall. This can happen if:
  • The print cartridges are not snapped in correctly.
  • The encoder strip is out of place.
  • A foreign object is blocking the cartridge carrier's path.
You can check this article on how to solve that problem: http://bit.ly/XypLZK

"Print carrier stall"?


Error 0502-Carrier Stall indicates a physically blocked carrier. This condition can occur for many possible reasons. Most often, the carrier is blocked because the ink cartridge lids are open while the printer is on (Figure 1).

Figure 1: Open Ink Cartridge Lids

Reseat the Ink Cartridges and Make Sure the Lids Are in Place
  1. Make sure the printer is turned on.
  2. Lift the printer's front cover.

    new_note.jpg Note: The ink cartridge should be in the up/loading position unless the printer is busy.
  1. Squeeze the tabs on the cartridge lids and lift the cartridge lids up. The cartridge pops up when the lid is fully lifted.
  2. Remove the cartridges.
  3. Make sure that all of the protective tape has been removed from the contacts on the ink cartridge.
  4. Replace the cartridges.
  5. Snap the lids closed.
  6. Close the printer's front cover.
  7. When prompted on the printer's LCD to choose New or Old, choose Old.
  8. Press Select.

» Reposition the Encoder Strip
  1. Remove the power cord from the printer.
  2. Lift the scanner unit to expose the inside, where the printer cartridges are located.
  3. Gently slide the ink cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer.
  4. Gently move the top part of the printer belt to the right.
  5. Using an index finger, gently push encoder strip (Figure 1) down and then back up, to get it back into the slot located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier.

  6. Gently press the strip first to the rear, and then forward, to ensure that it is seated correctly.
  7. Manually move the ink cartridge carrier to the left, then to the right, to check the positioning of the encoder strip.
  8. Once the encoder strip has been re-seated, close the scanner lid.
  9. Re-connect the power cord to the printer.

Carrier Stall is the error


Hi,
Please do the following..

To check the cartridge carrier:
  1. Unplug the printer.
  2. Move the cartridges to the left by hand and then take them out.
  3. Try to print without the cartridges in the carrier. Do you still receive a Carrier Stall error message?
  4. If not, put the cartridges back into the carrier and snap them in at the back. The message should no longer appear.
If the power light on the printer is not blinking, the error message may be caused by a communication error. Do the following:
  1. Remove any other devices attached to the USB/LPT port.
  2. Uninstall the Lexmark printer.
  3. Connect the printer directly to the PC and ensure that power is being supplied to the printer.
  4. Reinstall the printer.
Thank you....

Ink cartridge


Not quite sure what you mean but if it is stuck under the housing then that would give the error. Could it be that the cartridge wasn't installed straight and this has caused it to become jammed?
