When the printer runs out of ink, the head moves accross as normal to let me change the ink, but while I am trying to change the ink cartridge, the head starts moving spontaneouly and jams with the ink...
Printers can do strange things, they are none the less mechanical in some respects. Whilst in operational mode, they can start up and resume a print job that has been spooling for hours ( usually due to network issues or overloads ) but getting back to your problem, i would suggest turning the unit off when the head is in the correct spot and insert the cartridge.

I have one theory is that most manufacturers are re-using older software drivers and updating where needed, and aren't getting away from the step by step type program enough. If a printer misses a step for whatever reason, it will continue to behave strangely until the unit has been put back in sync. Please someone tell me why is this so ? and if i am wrong, why does my printer fire up in the middle of the night, spit out 10 blank pages for no apparent reason ?
