Carriage slams into left side


In this case unplug the power supply from the Printer........... 1. Open the Printer Cover.......... 2. Remove both the Catridges from the Printer............ 3. Move the Catridge Carrier which holds the catridge from right to left and from left to right for about 10 times............ 4. Try to make a copy without the catridges........If this works and it gives a Blank Page out............ 5. Insert both the catridges turn the printer off and turn it on again........... 6. Now it should work fine........ Good Luck......

Ink cartridge slams from side to side and lights


Epsons often experience this odd problem. This is a sort of tempory fix.
turn printer on allow carriage to leave its base and disconnect the power cord.


Clean the rails the cartridges run on. You should notice the cloth comes away with black stuff.
Use a small amount of sewing machine oil on a cloth and wipe the rails again ( or small amount of wd40 on a cloth.

Slide the carriage along and back a few times. then return it to home and reconnect power cord and turn on. That should get it to behave for a few more weeks/months. If it continues, then the head is damaged and will have to be renewed or buy a new Canon Printer. ( NOT EPSON)

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

After replaceing an ink cartriage every time I turn the printer the ink tray slams to one side then all the way back I gert an error message to start it again and slam bam. I hope you can help.


The encoder strip may have come out of the sensor slot. Turn off power, slide cartridge carrier to center, place finger on each side of encoder strip which runs behind the carriage and push the encoder strip down and back up, slightly back and forward if necessary to get it into the sensor slot which is located behind carrier. If it is in slot, sliding the cartridge carrier back and forth to see if therre is movement. If so repeat.

Put in new ink cartridges - when powered on, cartridges slam against end of printer and I get a carrier stall mesage - the slam also loosens the ink cartridges from their position.


Does the problem happen when there are no cartridges in the carriage? What happens if you manually pull the belt to move the carriage to the park position or a position it's not normally in when you turn the machine on when the problem happens. There should be some kind of encoder that lets the printer's computer know the position of the carriage at a given time. This may look like a plastic or metal ribbon. Try cleaning it with rubbing alcohol or window cleaner.

It's losing knowledge of where the carriage is on the rail, hence the carriage tring to escape threw the side

and I'm concerned with your L-01 piece is one of these?

If so thats the cover switch but to my knowledge doesn't create the slam, that usally known to be a plasic strip that runs the width of printer, not intact, Dirty or not running threw the carriage sensor

Tell me more and I'll continue.

Calibrate the carriage


Printers are finely tuned machines. Unplug it from the wall for a couple of minutes. Let it forget about the pain. Turn it back on see if it realigns itself. You may get lucky. otherwise, You may need to unscrew the same screws and make sure the cartridge holder is pushed securely on the track. Good thing new printers aren't too expensive. Buy a model that takes the same kind of ink. That is where their money is made. Good Luck, Tim
