ONE OF THE ARTICLES IN, www.fixya.com/support/t262916-printer_carriage ,GAVE US SOME GOOD INFORMATION. IT REFERS TO A PAGE IN A PARTS MANUAL THAT WAS IN PDF FORM, WHICH WE HAD TROUBLE DOWN LOADING. WITH THE DOWN LOADING OF AN UP DATED ADOBE, WE MANAGED TO VIEW IT. THE ASSEMBLY THAT THE WHITE PLASTIC L SHAPED PIECE WAS MOUNTED TO WAS HANGING DOWN, AND HAD COME LOOSE. THE PLASTIC L PART GOES ON ONE OF THE SHAFTS ON THE LITTLE WHITE PLASTIC CARRIER, THAT MOUNTS INTO THE SLOTS. NOTE THEIR IS A SMALL SPRING THAT IS ON ONE SIDE AND IT ATTACHS TO ONE OF THE SHAFTS ON THAT SIDE OF THE WHITE PLASTIC CARRIER. PUT IT BACK TO GETHER IF THE PARTS AREN'T BROKEN AND THE PRINTER SHOULD WORK. I FEEL IT WAS THE SPRING COMING OFF OF THAT SHAFT THAT ALLOWED IT TO COME LOOSE, AND SHUT THINGS DOWN. GOOD LUCK

The Ink carriage in my Epson Printer won't realign from home position to change cartridge, how do I fix this?


If the carriage doesn't move at all, the latch may have gotten stuck. If you unplug the printer, wait a few seconds, plug it in and power on, it should move the carriage back and forth. If it moves at all, quickly unplug it, while it is unlocked.

Now, you can clean around the parked position, and lube the travel shaft (sewing machine oil is good. Any similar light oil is ok).

If this doesn't help, check that the optical tape behind the carriage is clean, there are sensors to measure carriage position, and if the tape gets dirty, they won't work right. Do not use solvents there, you can remove the marks and make your printer into a paper weight.

How to solve the problem of my Epson stylus CX5900, when i turn the printer the message appear in the screen, E-90 please contact Epson. how could i fixed this problem?


Error E-90 means that something is stopping the ink carriage from moving its full extent.
Open the scanner and check that the ink carriage lid is firmly locked down, check along the path of the carriage for any foreign/loose objects. Use an alcohol wipe or similar & gently wipe the plastic registration strip that goes through the top rear of the ink carriage. Be careful not to dislodge or damage it. If the carriage moves when you switch it on, pull out the power cable when it is across to the left and check for loose gears or foreign objects in the gears on R/H side.

If I could be of further assistance, let meknow. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonialfor my response.

Epson D120 printer carriage goes to the left and stays there.


Yes I understand that, I think your proilem maybe that there is dirt/ ink on the slide bars. ( Sublimation ink ias notorious for imparting a residue)

So take a cloth and clean those metal rods that the cartridges slide along. They should reveal a lot of dirt on the rag. Then use some wd 40 or light sewing machine oil on another rag and wipe on wipe off. They only need a very slight amount.

I hope that is of help to you.

Where is the carrriage located on my hp 7310 officejet printer?


The carriage is the unit that holds your ink cartridges, usually parked on the right side. When you have carriage stall or carriage jam you usually need to clean the clear plastic strip that runs across behind the carriage assembly, and make sure there are no scraps stopping the travel of the carriage.

Printer error - see manual


Without seeing for myself this is hard to diagnose. The most common reason for this error is that something is preventing the ink carriage from travelling the full length. Open the scanner unit and check that the carriage lid is fully closed, check along the carriage path for any loose objects. Turn the printer on with the scanner part open and see if it moves across at all or if there are any unusual noises. If it does move then remove the power cable while it is across to the left and check the small white gears where the carriage normally parks for any loose parts or objects which may jam the gears. If the carriage does not move then something is preventing the parking lock from unlocking and you will need a technician to look at it.

Hope this helps, good luck.

Carriage problem with grinding noise


Your printers carriage belt has gone loose you are required to change it. I'd advise you to send it to an expert because changing of a belt in your ink jet is not feasible with guidence through text messages.

Turn off the power and look inside the machine to the right hand side. Just in front to f the print head you will see a white plastic dowel (see photo). Use something technical - like a finger, pen or screwdriver - to push this dowel in. You can then move the print head by hand to the middle of the carriage.

Once moved, turn the printer on and watch it travel back to the home position. If after returning home the dowel pops back out and does not retract itself, you will need to strip the machine out and rebuild the ASF section. Sounds hard but its just a few plastic parts to take apart and reassemble whilst looking to see if anything is broken.

Get a service manual; for the machine HERE if you need to strip it out.
