Question about Epson Stylus RX500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Start the machine with the lid raised so you can see the print head. I think you find the drive belt for the head is going round but the head is not moving. This makes a dreadful noise and sounds worse than it is.
Make sure the cartridge carrier lid is closed and not stopping the head from moving. Next thing to look at is the head lock. If you look behind the drive belt with the print head at home position you should be able to see a white bit of plastic poking through from behind the rail. Use your finger, a pen, screwdriver or whatever and just push the white back through the rail
Check that the head can be moved by hand and power the machine on and off a couple times, just to make sure the drive for the lock is not broken.
