Leanne Hi. When I replaced the black ink cartrige in my x83 printer the carrier slams all the way to the left with a lot of force. The printer worked fine all I did was replace the cartrige. The power button from that point on did not even work I have to pull the plug to turn the machine off. I have done this many times without any problem. What is the reason for this and what can be done to fix it? Please help. Thanking you in advance for your concern.

Error: "Carrier Stall" ID:470
To check the cartridge carrier:
1. Unplug the printer.
2. Move the cartridges to the left by hand and then take them out.
3. Try to print without the cartridges in the carrier. Do you still receive a Carrier Stall error message?
4. If not, put the cartridges back into the carrier and snap them in at the back. The message should no longer appear.
If the power light on the printer is not blinking, the error message may be caused by a communication error. Do the following:
1. Remove any other devices attached to the USB/LPT port.
2. Uninstall the Lexmark printer.
3. Connect the printer directly to the PC and ensure that power is being supplied to the printer.
4. Reinstall the printer.
