Might be service station jammed.Service station work is to clean the print heads,stores spitting ink init as we as capping the print heads to protect from the nozzle drying..After switching off the machine service station capping the print heads and arrest the carriage assm for protecting the print heads, in this condition carraige assm wont come out until its released by service station. Its required expert to release the service station, if you force to pull it will damages the print heads.. You justify what you can do for this issue...If you are capable do it...But care fully
Symptom look like carriage jammed in service station,open cover gently try to pull carriage out if its jammed, open top & side covers, release service station capping through manually rotate gears, once its released, push carriage left side, remove service station & verify why its jammed, if found any breakage replace it, or clean it..but little bit technical skill required..see the similar diagram below:
I assume you mean that the power and resume lights are blinking. This signals a carriage stall. Open the top cover, if the cartridge cradle moves to the right, it isn't stuck and may be a one-time issue. If it is stuck, unplug the power to the printer. Open the access door and observe the carriage position. Clean any lint or paper pieces out. Remove any obstructions. Move the cradle and continue checking for lint, paper and obstructions until the entire area is cleaned out. If the print carriage started out on the left side, return it to that position to make sure the cartridges are back in the capping station. Look inside the printer along the cartridge cradle path for obstructions and remove any. Remove the rear access door and check for paper pieces, remove any obstructions.
Plug in and turn on the printer and see if the carriage returns to the left and reseats itself in the capping station. Close up the printer.
If this doesn't work, the printer may need service.
Please check for the capping station after powering on do you find any ink in the cap station if no ink found in cap station its p head nozzles may by blocked and try to clean from printer panel switch May try to put some water in cap station and check water should be there until its try cleaning option and after force cleaning it will drain out if it’s happen properly its most chances are for p head nozzles may be block P head need to be replaced for same
Look for the gray-colored carriage on the right side of the printer.
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.
Using a screwdriver or similar tool, push the capping station toward the back of the printer.
Do not pull on the ribbon cable when moving the carriage.
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.
the carriage is pulled out from the right-hand side of the printer,
remove both print cartridges and store them according to specifications.
System Error 1180: Capping Motor Error
Capping Motor over current is detected.
Corrective Action: Try the following:
When the ambient temperature is very low, the Pump Motor Tube becomes hard and the load on the Capping Motor is increased. Make sure that the Printer is in an environment where the temperature is not below -10oC or higher than +85oC.
The Capping Station has a Torque Limiter for up and down operation so that the Capping Station does not experience any over current. Apply grease on the shaft of the Capping Station Gear so that it helps with rotation.
Make sure that the Capping Station cables are connected correctly and are not damaged
If the Capping Motor cannot be rotated, replace the Capping Station
Replace the Main PCA if nothing above corrects your problem
A couple things can cause this you may not have tried yet.
First in your printer driver properties, select the highest dpi setting and the correct paper setting for your type of printer.
Run a print head cleaning cycle. Run up to five cycles in sequence. Print a nozzle check
pattern after every one or two cleaning cycles to see if you have made any
progress. On most printers, after approximately every fifth cycle, the printer
will perform a more powerful head cleaning routine.
Clean the capping station The capping station is a rectangular flat sponge surrounded
by a raised gasket. When the print head is in the “parked position,” at the
right side of the printer carriage, the gasket of the cap presses against the
print head, sealing it. One purpose of this is to keep the print head from
drying out due to air exposure. Instructions: (1) push the “ink change” button to move print head off the cap. Unplug
the printer (2) Look inside the printer case, below where the print head was originally
sitting, to find the cap or caps. A cap is a rectangular piece, approximately
1” high by 2” wide(3) Look at the cap, using a flashlight if necessary. It
should be horizontal, not tilted at an angle. If it tilted, there may be a
problem with the fixture supporting it. (4) Clean the cap. Sometimes you may notice a buildup of residue or liquid
in the cap or on the gasket; other times you will not. Use a drinking straw to
deposit warm water, or use the tube from the inside of a bottle of Windex to
deposit Windex, onto the sponge. Use your finger to dispense only two or three
drops of liquid at a time. The liquid will remain in the cap for a few seconds,
but will soon drain out. Repeat this several times. Try not to let the Windex
or water spill around the cap, and into the printer. (5) Fold a paper towel into a 4”x4” (10cm X 10cm) pad. Press the towel gently
on the sponge to dab away ink and water or Windex. As you push on the sponge,
push down and slightly to the right, to protect the spring-loaded mechanism
that supports it. (6) Dip a cotton swab (Q-Tip) in water, and use it to wipe gently around the
edge of the capping station gasket, to remove dirt buildup there.
Ink flow problems can occur if the air channels on the top
of the cartridge become blocked. Check to make sure the cartridges that their is not bits of machined plastic on the top that was not properly removed.
