When the carriage is moving somewhere in the print area, pull the power cord and stop the carriage where you can reach it. Open the front cover and manually move the carriage through its range of motion. If there is an obstruction causing the noise, determine what that is and correct it.

If there are rubber crumbs under the carriage belt, the belt is disintegrating. This happens after 6 million cycles or 5 years with the OEM belts. New belts are available at http://www.lpscomputer.com/c-736-designjet-1050c-belt.aspx

I have an hp c 3180. Changed the black ink cartridge, the carriage went left where it is now lodged... I need to get the carriage out where I can check to see if the cartidge is properly seated.


Hi Richard,
Please follow the steps below to make sure that the carriage can move freely and is properly seated. Check the carriage path. Press the Power button to turn the product on, if it is not already on. Open the cartridge access door. The carriage might try to move into the access area at the right. Allow the carriage to move to that position.

1. Open the cartridge door.

2. Wait until the carriage is idle and silent.
3. Without turning off the product, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the product.
WARNING: In the following steps, you move parts by hand. You must disconnect the power cord from the rear of the product to eliminate the risk of an electrical shock and to reset the paper-feed mechanism.

4. Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet or power strip.
5. Look inside the product to see where the carriage is stuck, and then check for any torn paper or other objects that might restrict the carriage.
NOTE: You might need a flashlight to illuminate areas for proper viewing.

9. If the carriage is stuck on the left side of the product , move the carriage to the right side of the product.
10. If the carriage is stuck in the middle of the product , move the carriage to the right side of the product.
11. Make sure the carriage moves freely across the width of the product. Firmly push the carriage to the left side of the product, and then to the right side.
12. Close the cartridge access door. Close the cartridge access door

My Canon Ip2772 not printing. because i have error 5200 occurred. please send this solution. i m very glad to your solution


Please try this solution
Switch on the printer, while its moving the cartridge carriage unit, plug out the power cable.

Open the printer's cover.
Now the printer is off, and the cartridge carriage unit is located somewhere in the middle or any side.
Pull it to the middle of the printer.
Take out both cartridge from the carriage unit, and leave the "Lid" open wide.
Turn on the printer with the Lid still open. The carriage unit will now move to the left and to the right, and then stop again at the middle.
You can put back the cartridges according to the color code: C for Color, B for Black.
Close the cover, and try to print a page.

    How to remove the cartridge from hp photo smart 7960


    Hello the manual way to release cartridge is

    1. Disconnect the power cord from the printer.
    2. Open the top cover.
    3. Look for the gray-colored carriage on the right side of the printer.
    4. Find the horizontal (bottom) edge of the carriage and follow it towards the back (or in) until it makes a 90-degree turn. Follow it down to the ¼ inch-high, black-colored capping station.
    5. Using a screwdriver or similar tool, push the capping station toward the back of the printer.
      NOTE: Do not pull on the ribbon cable when moving the carriage.
    6. Making sure to not push up on the carriage, move the carriage to the middle of the printer. If the carriage is still locked in place, push the capping station farther into the printer and try moving the carriage again.
    7. After the carriage is pulled out from the right-hand side of the printer, remove both print cartridges and store them according to specifications.
    8. Close the top cover.
