I already followed all the steps. When I power off, unplug, then try and move carriage, it won't budge even with moderate manual pressure. The printer is just 1.5 years old, and has not been heavily used.
This printer require repair and may cost you very high.
If the problem do not resolved, then I hate to tell you, but unfortunately I don’t think the equipment involved here is worth the cost of repairs. You might even have suspected this yourself. For a lot less money than you spent on it years ago, you can fully replace it today. And for the same money, you can get higher performance with far more functionality as well. You can look online for a replacement unit, or go in person to a store.
If you have any other query, please ask me again instead of leaving negative feedback-"Helped a little" or "I expected more",
I expected a little more your adive might be worth $20, not $28
My suggestion is to contact a local hardware tech and ask the cost to fix it. Then check the cost of the new printer. Please go with the economical way.Thank you.
