That is no problem, sometimes the carriage can get stuck.
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. Reseat the cartridge you already put in, and then replace the black.

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.
