Question about Canon PIXMA MP130 All-In-One InkJet Printer
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.

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:
Unplug the printer from the power source.
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.
Remove the used cartridges.
Load the new cartridges. Close the cover.
5. Plug the printer back to the power source.
