Please check the cartridges and let me know if they can move automatically or not?

the cartridges do not move automatically and I am unable to get out of the printer error screen

OK, now turn off the printer then, try to slide the cartridges with your hand and let me know if you are able to do that or not?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I powered it back up and it briefly flashed paper jam .. then resumed the screech .. I've checked everywhere visible and see no paper could it be the a need to open it up?

I asked you to unplug the printer for 10 mins and you replied me back within 4 mins saying that, you power it on?

sorry ... I unplugged it again about 6 min ago will let you know in about four min
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
K .. unplugged it for ten + minutes ... same result quick flash on the screen saying paper jam .. then back to the printing error message

Ok, please take a flashlight and check the area below the cartridges for any foreign objects.

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
no visible debris inside the printer or under cartridges

OK, keep the printer cover open then, power off and on the printer and let me know if the cartridges try to move or not?

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
the cartridges try to move the screeching noise is coming from the cartridge carriage or holder whatever its called .. it tries to move . is help up .. screams then settles into the "printer error" mode

Thanks, ***** ***** the carriage is jammed and as the screeching sound it coming it means the waste ink absorber which is located just below the resting position of the cartridges is popped out from its chamber and blocked the movement of the cartridges, unfortunately, you have to send the printer to any repair shop for fixing the problem.
