    I have the exact same problem. The belt that's supposed to move the ink carrier moves fine but the carrier goes nowhere. Its like it came disconnected from the carrier and its too tight back there for me to see what's going on.

Hi, I'm having other belt problems but it sounds like the belt has separted from the carriage. The belt is held in place by looping through a place on the back of the carriage. It is just pressed into the plastic structure so if the plastic has broken or the belt worked out, your problem would occur.

It is a bit tricky in getting the carriage released. I found it necessary to completely remove the inner workings from the casing. A few screws and plastic clips to release but not too bad.
The trick comes in when you have to release the slide bar that runs through the carriage. It is held in place by small clips on either end. Both must be removed. They appear to be fiber so don't be too rough on them. There is a white plastic mounting on both ends which allows the print head to adjust for envelopes or paper. The one on the left (while looking at the printer from the front) must be removed. Be sure and mark the position of the bracket before removing. Take the screw out and rotate the piece so that the lugs will pass through the housing. Once removed, the bar can be slid through the opening and out of the carriage. You can then ease the belt off the motor gear (on the left) and inspect the "u" shaped connection on the back of the carriage. There is an area of the belt which is noticeably thicker than the rest of the belt and this is what should be inserted in the "u". If the plastic is broken you will probably have to replace the carriage. Good luck.

I cannot stop the ink cartridge holder to stop in the correct positioo to replace the cartridges on my epsom cx5500 printer


Hello jgw_cansdale,
Welcome to Fixya.com!
If the Ink light (fon3_66.gif) is flashing that means one or more of your ink cartridge is low on ink, and if it's steady it means one or more is out of ink. For Epson printers, there are lots of ways to identify whether your printer is out or low on ink. For today let's just stick with the printer itself.\
Remember: A flashing fon3_66.gif means LOW ON INK, and a steady fon3_66.gifmeans OUT OF INK.
1. Open the scanner bed by lifting it up just like opening a brief case. By doing this you should now be able to see the carrier area this is the area were the ink carrier or ink holder moves left and right,
2. Press the Ink button. Now remember flashing means LOW and steady means OUT of ink.
If the Ink light is flashing, and you pressed the Ink button the carrier or ink hold will move under a small arrow just right above the carrier to point to you which ink cartridge is low on ink. pressing it again will point to another if you have multiple cartridges that are running low, if not it moves directly to the ink cartridge replacement area were you can pop the carrier's lid open to access the inks.
If the Ink light is steady, and you pressed the Ink button the carrier or ink hold will move under a small arrow just right above the carrier to point to you which ink cartridge is out of ink. pressing it again will point to another if you have multiple cartridges that are out of ink, if not it moves directly to the ink cartridge replacement area were you can pop the carrier's lid open to access the inks.
