Turn off and unplug the printer. Let it sit for a LONG time--at least 20 min. Then, plug in and turn on to see if it resets itself. If not, make certain there are no obstructions in the path of the ink cradle, or in thr paper path. Finally, you may have a stuck microswitch that tells the printer the lid has been opened to change the cartridges. These switches are inside a rectangullar hole. Their actuators are often found on the edge of doors and covers. For actuators, just feel along the edges with your finger for fin-like protrusions. If there is a hole but the fin is broken off, the switch cannot activate.

If it seems stuck behind something or wont lift out, some printers have you go into the settings or option window and choose change ink cartridge (or something close to that) then when you select it, the printer will send the cartridges to the middle for you to release.

The ink cartridge wont come to center

Turn of printer. Turn it on, watch the carriage move, when it goes to the other side quickly unplug your printer, it should stop somewhere along the middle of the printer, now u can freely move it by hand to the position that you wanted, you can now remove the cartridge and replace it with a new one, after doing what you need to do just push the carriage towards the right side where it should be parked. Good luck!

How to change the ink cartridge?

lift the lid while the printer is on and the catridges should bring themselves to the middle so you can access them easily. If they dont, try pressing the button which indicates low ink (it may be flashing if they need changing) and this will bring them to the middle.

Once you have the cartridges in the middle they will either clip out by pressing down on the side nearest to you or there will be a catch keeping them in place which needs lifting and then unclip them. Just do the reverse to place the new ones in.

If you need any further help or I have missed anything then please let me know and I will do what I can :D

It just wont work

Move the ink cartridge carriage (the printhead) to the middle of the printer like you're going to change cartridges.  Take out all the ink cartridges.  There should be two black springs on either side of the printhead.  Remove these and the printhead should pop out.  Clean the nozzels (the little parts that squirt out ink) and reassemble.

If this doesn't work, then you'll have to replace the printhead.
