Most likely the encoder strip is dirty and the print cartridge can't tell where it is in the printer. If you look in the printer through the paper feed area you should be able to see a clear plastic strip running along the back of the printer that is attached to the print cartridge carriage. Wet a q-tip and GENTLY rub along the front face of the encoder strip. You should be getting black to grey material on your q-tip. Continue until the q-tip comes out clean. Take a dry q-tip and dry the water off the encoder strip. Turn on the machine and see if it figures itself out. If it does it would be a good idea to clean the part of the strip where the cartridge carriage was.

Sometimes the ink cartridge carrier won't automatically move to its loading position even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Follow the steps below:


1. Unplug the printer from the power source.

2. With the cover open, hold the solid white strip that connects from the carrier assembly to the ink cartridge carrier and gently slide the cartridge carrier to the center of the printer.

3. Remove the used cartridges.

4. Load the new cartridges. Close the cover.

5. Plug the printer back to the power source.

I have forgotten how to move the ink cartridges into a position where they can be changed.


Turn on the printer. Open the top of the printer to expose the ink cartridge compartment. Hit the "Stop" button. This will cause the printer head to move so that one of the two ink cartridges move above the "No Ink" icon. Hit the "Stop" button again. It will move the other ink cartridge above the "No Ink" icon if it needs to be replaced. The printer head will move to the original position to the right.

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.

After installing re-filled ink cartridges, both color and back & white, the printer message that shows ink level still shows low level ink? How do we resolve?


Hello,

Try this procedure:
1. Open printer lid so cartridges move to center of carriage.
2. Lift clamp and remove black or color cartridge from the holder.
3. Place cartridge on table with copper contact strip facing you.
4. Carefully place a strip of clear plastic tape over the four contacts on the upper left corner of the cartridge.
5. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position.
6. Open lid and remove cartridge again. Remove tape from left side and place tape over four contacts at upper right corner of cartridge.
7. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position again.
8. Open lid again, remove cartridge, remove tape.
9. Reinstall cartridge and close lid.
Printer will now recalibrate. Once the process is complete the ink level meter should be reading full again.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Put in new ink cartridges - when powered on, cartridges slam against end of printer and I get a carrier stall mesage - the slam also loosens the ink cartridges from their position.


Does the problem happen when there are no cartridges in the carriage? What happens if you manually pull the belt to move the carriage to the park position or a position it's not normally in when you turn the machine on when the problem happens. There should be some kind of encoder that lets the printer's computer know the position of the carriage at a given time. This may look like a plastic or metal ribbon. Try cleaning it with rubbing alcohol or window cleaner.

Ink cartridges make a slamming sound from left to right and wont print


The encoder strip is most likely the problem. Unplug the power from the printer. Open the front cover and move the cartridge carrier to the center. You should see a white ribbon cable, a thin plastic strip and a black belt with teeth.
The thin plastic strip is the encoder strip. It rides in a sensor on the back of the cartridge carrier that you will not be able to see. Reach in with the first finger of either hand and carefully strum the strip as if playing a guitar.
The strip will need to be lowered slightly and brought towards you slightly. Please be careful not to break the strip or your printer will not function. Once you believe the strip is set correctly, plug the power back and try printing the self test. If it slams to the left again, the strip is not yet set correctly.
If you cannot repair the strip, please let us know so that we can assist you further.

Please Note: Fixing the encoder strip is a delicate procedure. During the troubleshooting, if the strip breaks, you will not be able to use the printer.

I have an hp deskjet 3940 printer and the power light keeps flashing; moreover; the moment I turn on my pc, the inkcartridges slam from left to right.


There is a plastic strip that the cartridges move along with small positioning markings on it. When this strip gets coated with ink the sensors cannot read the position causing the cartridges to go beyond the end mark and slam. Unplug the printer power and open it to access the cartridges, use a cloth damp with water and clean this strip - BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO DAMAGE OR DISCONNECT IT!

Clear carrier jam


In your case It seems like the Encoder strip is broken or its out of printer . However if you see encoder strip inside the printer connected from left to right, try these steps.



Solution:

1. Cleaning the encoder strip:
a. printer should be off and disconnected from power.
b. open the front cover.
c. Using a dry, lint free cloth, pinch the encoder strip on the right-hand side of the cartridge carriage and pull your fingers across it toward the right-hand side of the printer and you can move the cartridges carriage to clean the strip completely.
d. Note: The encoder strip is a narrow band of clear plastic and can be difficult to see without direct lighting running parallel to metallic rod.
e. Close the printer and try again to print.

2. Repositioning the Encoder strip.
a. Remove the power cord from the printer.
b. Open the front cover.
c. Gently slide the ink cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer.
d. Gently move the top part of the printer belt to the right.
e. Using an index finger, gently push encoder strip down and then back up, to get it back into the slot located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier.
f. Gently press the strip first to the rear, and then forward, to ensure that it is seated correctly.
g. Manually move the ink cartridge carrier to the left, then to the right, to check the positioning of the encoder strip.
h. Once the encoder strip has been re-seated, close the scanner lid.
i. Re-connect the power cord to the printer and try again to print.

Hi ,
This product clearly needs a servicing as far as my experience goes . Still we shall go ahead and try to reach the solution or else this definitely needs servicing. I shall explain why -
1. check cartridge on right : if you have replaced the black cartridge and have been using the original cartridges then its an issue with the print heads. The black print head needs to be replaced by the local service centre . There is a blockage in the nozzles of the print cartridge that passes out the ink.
2. slam to the right : if i am not wrong this is the carriage you are referring to. Do the following steps (though i presume you might have done it if you have reset the printer)-
a. pull out the power cable
b. open the cartridge door and hold the carriage with your hand and move it manually 4-5 times left to right with as much speed as possible....there should be no obstruction on the way it moves.....if there is a pin / peice of paper / any obstruction - remove it if you can. The carriage could also slam if the pin of its movement has gone loose and it keeps on slamming uncontrolably. This seriously needs a servicing from the local service centre.
