Printers are made of plastics, even those expensive looking and probably some piece has weared off. My experience is that this kind of failure can't be repaired by a user vithouth the repair kit and the technical knoledge. If you don't know how - most probably - you should take your printer to an authorized Epson repair site.

Check paper jam, carriage struck, cartridges faulty and service related issues.checking carriage:Switch on the machine check carriage(the unit carrying print heads)moving left & right.. if its not moving, it might be struck in service station(service station located at right end and its allow carriage to rest on it during shut down as well as its cleans the print head nozzles). power the machine pull carriage out gently, don't force it..Clean encoder strip: Encoder is located back side of the carriage and its guides carriage to move properly, if encoder became dirty you will get error message, clean encoder with smooth cotton cloth.

Print head is stuck to the far right of the printer I have had problems in the past with the head cleaner popping up and stopping the print head from going home but now it has I think come loose and...


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Sir, In Epson Printers if print head is struck and it don't move then it may be because of several reasons.Mostly problem of print head struck is because of Paper Jam, actually their may be small bit paper jam in side the printer head,There are some "micro-sensors" that detect a paper jam. There will be tiny piece of paper, or a lump of dust, inside those sensors, thus "tripping" the sensor and it struck the Print Head.Open printer cover and check to make sure no paper or foreign objects obstructing the printer feederIf you become sure that now really there is no paper, dust or foreign objects then
Turn the printer off, and disconnect the AC power-cable. Open the printer cover & now give the printer a "blow-job" by compressed air.It will clear the printer jam and it may allow you to move print head.
If problem still exist then it may be due to dirty or clogged print head which hinder a regular flow of ink from the ink cartridge to paper. The first step is actually knowing where the print head is and what it does. As you print a document, ink droplets leave the ink cartridge through the cartridge nozzle and go to the print head. The print head then lays the ink on a precise point on the paper. As you print, tiny droplets of ink can get stuck around the print head opening. If these drops get time to dry, they can form a crust around the print head and print head struck because of it. This problem can be solved if you clean the print head with software, There are a few ways to go about cleaning the print head. Potentially, the easiest way is to let your printer clean itself. Many inkjet printers will have maintenance options in the printers software that will actually clean your printer for you. You can use them to clean it, After cleaning it may allow you to move the print head.If the built-in cleaning functions don't seem to do the job then There are a few ways to clean your print head manually. Its technical because you need to open the Printer, First remove the ink cartridge from the print head and take the print head out of your printer and then dip a cotton swab in hot water or isopropyl alcohol and rub it against the print head. This should loosen any crusted ink. Put some isopropyl alcohol or hot water into a saucer and set the printer head in the saucer. Let it soak for at least an hour. If it's really dirty, it might be a good idea to let it soak overnight. Let it air dry, reinstall it in your computer, and run a cleaning cycle,This should get rid of any dried ink that was loosened during the soaking. Be careful, especially if you use isopropyl alcohol to clean your print heads, Some printers use rubber gaskets; if you get isopropyl alcohol on the gaskets, it could dry them out.This process surely helps you but its highly technical so i recommend if your product is in warranty or out of warranty.If your product is in warranty, Simply contact to Epson Service Center or from where you purchased it and claim the warranty. Your problem will be solvedI hope this solution helps you and you have clear picture in your mind
Let me know if you have any confusion in your mind.

Sir/Ma'am, Your Rating as Five Stars for this solution and Words of appreciation as Feedback for me will be really esteemed
Thank You for taking my service

I think the printhead is to close to the paper. You can set it by moving the small (blue?) lever on the liftside of the ribbon

Check the sensor near the gear box on the left side and clean it with contact cleaner. Make sure that sensor will swing back and stay at the center. If the problem persist you better replace the sensor.

It almost sounds as if the guide on the left side has been moved. Reload the paper so it is up against the right side of the paper tray and then move the left guide up against the paper.

Problem with my canon printer IP1500


You have a few choices before you start....

1) do the above proceedure and spend some time.
2) take the printer to cannon and spend some money.
3) buy a new printer and spend some money.
STEP 1:
- Disconnect printer from AC power

STEP 2:
- Press and HOLD the POWER button, and
connect printer to AC power

This simple power off procedure worked on my IP1500!

Cleaning the absorber was also easy. Power up with the cover open until the head moves to the left side then disconnect the power cord so the head is now positioned away from the pads.
The two pads can be lifted up easily with a pair of sharp tweezers then rinsed in running water. They will become white again and can be blotted with paper napkins then air dried in a warm location (I used an industrial oven set to 40°C). The wells in the rubber holder can be cleaned with cotton swabs before returning the two pads (left side first, then press down the right side).
