    Deskjet 1220C carriage sticks

    Locked

    by cneeley ·

    The carriage is sticking in the left hand postion rather than returning “home”. I have cleaned the rod it slides on. I can’t see anything obstructing the slide. Any ideas?

      1. Bad drive motor or toothed belt.

      2. Ink buildup blocking cartridge from moving.

      3. Out of position print head covers or cleaning pad.

      Grab the carriage and see if it rocks on the rails. Depending on the amount of service it has seen the guides could be worn.

      Make sure there is no obstructions on the left side of the carriage run. You could be getting a positioning error.

      Good Luck Lee
