your encoder strip(a transprent strip behind the carriage) is either broken or loosed up and so it is not able to get self aligned.kindly fit the encoder properly or change the encoder if neccessary.encoders are usually very cheap.wish u luck!!

I had this same problem, I found a long skinny thin plastic strip had fallen off & caused the problem for me. The plastic strip has slits at each side to attach to the inside back of printer, on the left side is a down ward facing arrow, the plastic strip feeds through the back middle of the cartridge carrier and then the slits are to be inserted to the metal tab like pieces on the back sides inside the printer on the right side (facing printer) it will look like a small rectangular hole with a longer metal tab like piece sticking out & on the left is a smaller squared like hole with a flat smaller metal like tab which will line up if the plastic strip is feed through the back of the cartridge carrier properly. This should allow the cartridge carrier to glide properly & work as it should, with no more banging! Sorry my tech. terminology isn't good, I am not Knowelegable with this sort of thing, just sharing my experience :) HTH!

Be sure the printer is powered on as it needs power to move the cartridges - this is a common mistake.

I have a four in one Lexmark x5630 printer and have replaced cartridges with brand new black and colour 36 & 37xl. The printer won't even print a test page - just says that cartridge error co


The problem could be due to a communication failure between one of the printheads (cartridges) and the All-In One (AIO) or by a short in one if the printheads. Please follow the steps below to identify and fix cartridge issues:

  1. Make sure the printer is on.
  2. Open the printer cover. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-In-One is busy. Note: If the carrier does not automatically move to the center, turn off the printer or unplug the printer from the power source and then carefully slide the carrier to the center.
  3. Remove both cartridges from the carrier.
  4. Close the printer cover.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in to, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.
  7. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.
  8. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
Try to contact the store where you bought the new cartridge(s) and have them replace it. You may also contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for assistance (especially if you're using genuine cartridges).

When printing it starts to print then the cartrideges slam back and forth then it errors


Open the printer cover and access the cartridge area. Remove the cartridges. Check the transparent strip(encoder strip) and make sure it's not unseated from its position. If it is, - Switch off the printer. - Slide the cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer by taking the top part of the belt and moving it gently to the right. - Place an index finger on the encoder strip on either side of the cartridge carrier. The encoder strip is a clear strip running the length of the printer, above or behind the cartridge carrier. - On the back of the cartridge carrier, there is a small slot that the encoder strip fits into. Slightly push the encoder strip down and then back up to get it into the slot. - Then lightly press the strip first to the rear and then forward, if necessary.
Try to print again.

How do i install the ink cartridge in my lexmark z35 printer


Select the ink cartridge specific to your printer. Canon inks are versatile, so your selection may be as simple as choosing between black, color or a multi-pack with black and color cartridges.

Turn on your Canon printer. The switch is generally located on the top right hand side of the printer. Open the printer's lid.

Wait a moment. The cartridge carrier will automatically disengage.

Put your hand behind the existing ink cartridge and pull the cartridge towards you until it pops out. Dispose of or recycle the used cartridge.

Carefully pull the tape off the new cartridge.

Position the new cartridge into the cartridge carrier. Make sure it is facing the correct position.

Press the cartridge carrier gently until it clicks into place. Some cartridges have indicators to demonstrate that they are properly positioned.

Close the printer's lid. Print a test page to ensure everything is working properly.

    Cartridge error 1203


    First of all, please verify each cartridge carrier has an ink cartridge :
    1. Check to make sure the left cartridge carrier contains a black or photo ink cartridge.
    2. Check to make sure the right carrier contains a color ink cartridge.
    3. Remove each cartridge and examine it to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the contacts and the print head.
    4. Replace each cartridge in the proper carrier.
    Step 2 :

    Wicking the cartridges and cleaning the contacts on the back of the cartridge should be performed if the nozzle clean was performed and the quality was not satisfactory.
    Wicking the Cartridge
    1. Ensure the printer is powered on.
    2. Lift the scanner unit.
    3. Open the cartridge latches and remove the cartridges from the carrier (Figure 1).
    4. cartout922%281%29.jpg
      Figure 1: Removing the Cartridges from the Printer
    5. Take a clean, damp cloth and wipe the nozzle of the print cartridge from front to back (Figure 2).
    6. printer1.jpg
      Figure 2: Proper Cleaning Direction
      new_note.jpg Note: Never wipe the cartridges from side to side, as this causes cross-contamination in color cartridges.
    Cleaning the Contacts
    1. Turn the cartridge so that you are looking at the contacts on the back side of the cartridge (Figure 3).
    2. cartridge_back_contacts.jpg
      Figure 3: Turning the Cartridge To View the Back Contacts
    3. Using a clean dry cloth, wipe the contacts in the direction shown (Figure 4), so that no dust or other contaminants are visible.
    4. new_note.jpg Note: Do not use the same cloth that was used to clean the cartridge nozzles. This may cause more contamination on the cartridge.

    5. Clean the contact inside the printer with the dry cloth used to clean the cartridge contacts.
    6. Replace the cartridges in the carrier and close the scanner unit.
    7. Print the document again.
    8. If the print quality does not improve, repeat the steps for cleaning the nozzles and contacts up to two more times as needed.

    OK, If the printer has 2 or more print cartridges, then certain cartridges must be inserted into the correct carrier. Make sure you have not mixed / switched the cartridges into the wrong carrier..

    Printer Error-->


    I just moved to Alaska and shipped this printer up and had the same problem. What I found was that when I start up the printer, the carrier that holds the printer cartridges would not move all the way to right side of the tray. You can see this if you open up the top portion of the scanner glass carrier.

    Turn off the power and remove the electrical plug from the back of the printer to be sure no power is feeding the printer.

    If you closed the top of the printer, the part where the scanner / copier glass is at, open it back up.

    Reach into the printer and manually move the piece of plastic that holds the print cartridges to the left.

    Directly underneath where the print cartridge carrier defaults to on the right hand side of the printer you will see a piece of white plastic on the bottom. It will probably be sticking up. It is hinged. Push it down gently so that it rests down inside of the indention where it is supposed to be.

    Plug your printer back in and turn it on. The printer will go through its self test, and if this was the problem will work correctly for you.
