Hello my name is***** do not rate until we are finished. I look forward to assisting and am very sorry to hear that you are having this problem.
I want to warn you that it is possible you will need to replace a part in order to fix this.
There are a few different things that can cause this and a couple different parts so we would need to troubleshoot to find out for sure.
Turn the machine off and unplug it.
Then by hand move the print head (cradle) by hand.It should move freely, if it does not it is damaged.
Move it back and forth across the bar 3 or 4 times.Then leave it in the middle of the bar.
Plug the machine back in and turn it on.Give it a minute or two to detect the print head in the middle and recalibrate it.
