May be you have missed something? May be something is blocking the carriage from moving freely? clean the metal bar thing that the carriage moves on. Hopefully it will resolve the issue.

Sai.

Epson Stylus 1200 lights indicate carriage jam


This means that your Epson printer has come to its end of life. In short, Epson wants you to retire your printer and buy a new one. Your Epson printer may be in good shape which is often the case. But Epson has this build-in "feature" which they want you to buy a new one.

Error message 1200 Dell AIO 922 printer


Buy and HP. Seriously though, you can look in the printer and should see a small thin plastic strip that looks tinted and sits behind the path of the print cartridge carriage. This strip has many vertical lines the printer counts to know it's position on the path. If this is dirtied with ink, a common problem, the printer can skip lines due to an inability to shine light through and count them. If this look inky, wipe it with a damp paper towel and COMPLETELY dry it. Unplugging the printer while the carriage is in motion will give you the ability to slide if freely. Good luck.

Printer not printing display error 1200 only.


Hi
Ok you can try this.
Error code: 1200
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.

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.

Message 5100 check printer - what's the problem?


A 5100 error is a carriage jam error.that means some thing is jammed in the printer at some point,you need to search for piece of paper or item jammed in the assembly.the 5100 is the carriage error and can be caused by 4 different sensors. First off the "Timing Strip" that passes through the back of the Carriage Assembly can be contaminated with ink spots and this needs to be cleaned. Open the cover and use your flashlight to examine the timing strip as much as you can see. You really don't have much access to this strip unless you remove the covers,..and doing that is considerable work. The other items that can cause this error are the sensor inside the carriage unit, the drive motor for the carriage arm, and of course the main logic card. However, 99.6% of the time it is the Timing strip which is easily contaminated with splattered ink.
if the problem still persist then you can use a power blower to blow the carriage assembly and the rollers

Lexmark X4250. Does not print. error message #1200


1200 error is a carriage error, you need to carefully clean the encoder strip, clear plastic strip that runs in the top area behind the carriage. Without dis-assembly, you can use a q-tip to remove any grease or ink spots on this strip. A little rubbing alcohol on the Q-tip will help.

Carriage jam on HP Officejet J5780 All-in-One


We have several of these in our company and the most common "Carriage Jam" cause is a glob of black ink in the bay on the right side. Once glob is removed, and "Carriage Jam" message appears again, press OK, and it prints fine from then on. Today the black ink glob was flat on top. Watch out for leaky cartridges, as the design of the particular HP device provides a nice catch pan for the tri-color ink cartridge, but not for the black one, so a leaky cartridge, besides being expensive and wasteful, can goop up the bay causing the carriage jam error message to try to get you to take a closer look.

Carriage Jam


Make sure you can move the print cartridge holder freely and that it isn't being blocked by anything inside the printer, also check if the cleaning station is in the right position, maybe it is locking the cartridges.
