SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: epson 1280 ink carriage making noise and not printing

If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your Epson printer with no tasks in progress, then check for any piece of paper stuck in the carriage. Remove the paper carefully. If the paper tears, part of it might remain inside the paper path and damage the product.

Fix 'Carriage Jam' : Open Door, clear carriage jam,
and then press OK to continue' error message
Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.
Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side.
Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path.
Reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer.

SOURCE: Ink carriage started make some horrible noises.

Examine the belt that powers the print head, see if it is excessively sloppy, check the head moves freely along the print head bar, if it snags, there is damage to the bar or the print head holder is worn

TBH, I'd bury it if there is any wear as replacement parts are expensive compared to a new printer

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.

EPSON XP-610 ALL LIGHTS ARE BLINKING AFTER 30 SECONDS OF TURNING IT ON

This error would indicate that the waste ink pad is full of that the carriage has encountered a problem and cannot travel the full length of the printer.

If it is ink pad error then you would need to locate an adjustment program.
Reset Printer and Save Your Money Step 1 Download WIC Reset Utility Free... Is one such program but the reset part of the program is not free. the rest of it is.

If you ask the PC to print does it give an ink pad error?
Download the program and ask it to check the ink pad state.
It will tell you if you have passed the limit or not.

Epson 1400 cartridge carriage jammed

The cleaning unit may still be engaged with the cartridge carriage. There may be a release mechanism on the side of the cleaning unit. The cover will have to be removed to see if that is the case. Another cause could be that the shaft or rail that the carriage travels on is quite dirty. It can be cleaned with alcohol to remove the dirt. That might be what is loading down the motor. Good Luck.

WHAT IS THE CARRIAGE CARTRIDGE

There are two different types of carriage units that you may be referring to depending upon the model printer you have. Older types of photo printers had two distinct carriages.

1. Carriage referees to equipment that travel left to right in your printer.
2. One is for the print heads that receive ink from your print cartridges and dispenses it to the paper that you are using.
3. The print head carriage that travels back and forth to accept replacement ink cartridges. Most of the time it is tucked to one side or the other and only travels when the printer is opened in a specific way to expose it for ink replacements.

In newer systems the print heads are built into the Ink cartridge, each color has it's own print head.


So in answer to your question the carriage cartridge is more than likely the container that you put your ink cartridge into. Unless you have an older printer and then it would or could be the carriage for either the print head or the ink. They some times need to be replaced. I had to replace that cartridge in an old HP2500 for as long as we had the printer. (4 years). Great machine high maintenance.

Error E-90

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. Hope this helps.
