tried unplugging it. looked for paper jams,looked for foreign objects around cartridges, changed cartridges, turn off then turned on while holding down stop/clear settings buttons. unplugged it from power and computer then plugged back up while holding down stop/clear settings button.

Hello my name is***** 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. Please open it as if you were going to change the ink cartridges and let me know what the carriage does.
