Question about Lexmark P4350 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I get an error message to clear carrier jam - but it isn't jammed. When I try to print something the carrier zooms accross from the right, smashes into the left hand side hard enough to move the wole printer by about a centimetre - then it immediately zooms across to the right again crashing into the side with a loud bang and at great force. When I open the cover the cartiridge carrier does not come out into the middle - I have to pull it out to check the cartridges. I can't print anything. Ive cleaned all the contacts etc. what can I do the printer is only six months old.
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!

On the bottom of the ink cartridge carrier (under the metal bar) is a small tab that must be present to interrupt a light sensor,
you should see it enter this small square sensor . that keeps the carrier synced.
Perhaps this is broken off or the sensor is dirty/bad.
if not broken.
insert a flattened q-tip with cleaner into the sensor to clean.
if it comes out with ink on it keep cleaning it.

What is the next best solution if, Coldcut solution does not
work? Should i just invest into a new printer or will Lexmark
replace the part that is defective. I have had printers that lasted
longer. I have only purchased Lexmark printers. Please advise!

My printer keeps showing an error message that says 1203. Then it says to consult my user guide. All that is fine except the user guide doesn't have error codes! It also says that the color cartridge isn't in there when it is...i've tried everything! Please help me!
