Question about HP DeskJet 5150 InkJet Printer
The printer could make alot of noise while load a paper for printing for some time. I didnot worry about since it was perfectly printing. One morning it contnually started to blink it start and resume buttons indicating an error. When I opened it top cover I discovered that it was attempting to move the ink cartridge carrier but it was stuck in it starting posistion. Todate no solution as I have no service manualto guid mein the opening and isolating the course
Just open the cover and out oil or any lubricant on the rod of catridge carrier and and manually move the head from left to right at for 5 to 10 times. but doind all these thing make sure your printer is completly off. bye

I just ran into this problem myself and whats happening is your ink cartridges are stuck on the black thing below them (i think its called a service station).
what u have to do is either take it apart which i did and to bottom right of the service station is a white gear with a pretty small gear below it leading into the service box so what u wanna do is turn the large gear clockwise, it might be a bit hard to push because it is obviously jammed and once it turn you will see a black rod moving towards the back of the printer keep on turning it until the black box thing (service station) drops down and frees your ink cartridges. once u turn it on i had troubles getting it to work because it was all messed up so u might have to reset the printer after this.
alternatively you might be able to reach the spindle u have to turn without taking the printer apart i haven't tried it because i just finished running my wires and restarting my printer to be bothered. anyways theres a little opening at the bottom right of the printer and u might be able to get a small flat head screwdriver in there to turn it. i wouldn't advise it because theres a lot of small boards u can scratch and damage in the process.
best of luck
