We don't send mails.
But scrutinise the printer, to check nothing has fallen in. Even a paperclip can block free passage of the printer head.

Eventually disconnect the printer from the mains and try to move the head careful from one site to the other. Use a bright light to see if anything is blocking the head.

I replaced a waste ink container for my epson stylus photo 1410, after that if I on it, the carriage will move to home position, the other side & back again. Then suddenly a loud noise whiles both ink &...

Carriage return drive error sounds like a possible obtruction or drive belt hangup. The best I can suggest is a thorough inspection but remember the printer head drive (which is the same as the old old carriage return nomemclature from typewriters and daisy wheel printers) can be impeded from several sources including even the paper feed. The question you should ask yourself, if you can't find something to adjust or fix, is how old the printer is. These days, many printer are cheaper to replace than even to change the first ink cartridge. So you must weight the cost of repair (in it comes to that) with the cost of a another, new, essentially disposable, replacement printer. Also, sometimes total shutdown and inplugging replugging of a printer will restor normal functioning. Also clean paten and roller with damp cloth might eliminate jams in the cartridge transport drive train.

You should check that you are using compatible ink for the printer that you are using and that you are selecting the correct paper type in the printer properties section when printing.

Try unplugging the unit and then plugging it back in. When you first power it up, it should do an initial system check, which involves moving the print head. Unplug the unit the moment the print head is in a position to change the cartridge. I did this with my old Canon when I had the same problem and it worked. Hope it works for you too.

Epson stylus photo 830

Yes it can probably be fixed. I hope you poked your friend in the eye for giving you such a headache though. You will need to dismantle the machine and remove the Auto Sheet Feeder (ASF) Once removed, check there is no bits of paper stuck inside. Then turn the pick up mechanisme by hand through a couple of revolutions to re synch everything. Also check the paper sensor is still intact - if not you can construct a new one from a piece of plastic or if the old one is still present, just glue it back together. You can download a service manual to hep you out with the dismantling from either:
