Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
We had the same problem and solved it by:
1. Removing the paper tray
2. Reduce the number of papers in the tray
3. Reset the tab to the right position (by moving it in and out).
4. Print it and make sure it works.
When we tried to add more paper in, the problem recurs. It seems like the problem is caused by a heavy load of papers in the tray.

Sometimes this is simply an unseated ink cartridge, or a dirty cartridge guide. Check for both of these. Use a lent free cloth to wipe the cartridge guide - its generally a thin transparent plastic that runs along the cartridge track.

There's a small locking mechanism that holds the carriage in it's home position. This needs to be slightly sprayed with WD-40 or a similar lubrication (small amount). Problem solved.

the silver bar the carrige slides on has lost all its lubrication. Try putting some chapstick on the silver bar
