Canon i455 printer - cartridge carriage broken?

When I turn on my printer, I hear a rat-a-tat noise and the light blinks from green to orange and back again. When I open the door to where the cartridges are, the cartridges just stay put on the side instead of swinging to the middle. I assume the noise is related to this.

Can this be fixed???

Carriage is jammed, turn off and see if you can manually move it
look for paper jam or other objects (paperclip,staple and so on). remove cartridges and inspect.

hope this helps

HP DeskJet 812C Hardware Problem! with Printer cartridge carriage. Printer Cartridge retracted into right side of case will not come out. There is No paper jam in machine to prevent it from doing so. ...

Disconnect the "data" cable (parallel or USB).
Disconnect the "power" cable.
Reconnect the "power" cable.
Turn the printer on.
Lift the printer's lid -- the print-carriage should slide the printer-heads to the "middle" position.

If all else fails, take the printer to a qualified technician, for more trouble-shooting.
