Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.

Please unplug the printer and open the cartridge access door and look for any packing material

that may be inside. When the printer is powered on and the cartridge access door is opened

the cartridge carrier should move to the middle so cartridges can be installed.

I checked, the area is clear of packing material

Hello, I am pleased to have the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I can help you solve your problem. If you disconnect the power cable, you can move the printer carriage to the center manually by applying a gentle amount of force. It should move to the center on its own, but it may be stuck. If the problem is a minor one, manually moving the carriage with the power disconnected may resolve the problem, so that it moves to the center on its own when he door is opened with the power on,

If you are satisfied with my advice, I would appreciate a Good or Excellent rating. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS OR ARE HAVING PROBLEMS, PLEASE LET ME KNOW, SO THAT I CAN PROVIDE YOU WITH THE ADDITIONAL SUPPORT THAT YOU NEED. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be of service. I ONLY GET COMPENSATED FOR MY TIME AND EFFORT WHEN I RECEIVE A POSITIVE RATING!
