Hi, My name is ***** ***** i will be assisting you

michelleclive :

please follow the below steps

michelleclive :

press the home button...then press the setup button(it has icon of tools)

michelleclive :

then maintainence...then ink cartridge replacement

Customer:

When pressing home button it comes up as an invalid operation and will not let me proceed further.

michelleclive :

then open the scanner cover and check if you are able to change the cartridge

michelleclive :

ok..please turn off unit and unplug power cord

Customer:

No cannot change cartridge. This is first time set up and am unable to insert cartridges as per original question

Customer:

I have unplugged poer cord

michelleclive :

now keep the ON button on printer pressed for 10 secs..wait for 2 mins

michelleclive :

plug in power cord and turn on unit and check

Customer:

I have done as requested but the ink cartridge holder has still not moved across.

michelleclive :

press the ink button

michelleclive :

does that move the cartridge holder

Customer:

Where is the ink button on this model

Customer:

I have pressed the Colour and Black and white buttons . No success

michelleclive :

ok

michelleclive :

turn off unit and try to manually slide the carraige

michelleclive :

does it move freely ro seems to be stuck

michelleclive :

does it move freely or seems to be stuck

Customer:

I have tried to manually slide it to the left but it will not move!

michelleclive :

this is a new printer

michelleclive :

is that right

Customer:

YEs

michelleclive :

the carriage seems to be locked

michelleclive :

this could happen due to a spring getting stuck

Customer:

Is it possible to unlock it.

michelleclive :

this could have happened while transporting the unit

michelleclive :

yes there is a way to unlock it

Customer:

I have checked all blue tape has been removed.

michelleclive :

try it carefully so as to not damage anything as that will void the warranty cover

michelleclive :

just below the carriage do you see a white plastic tab that is spring loaded

michelleclive :

you need to push it outwards towards yourself

michelleclive :

do this gently

michelleclive :

once done try moving the carriage

Customer:

No sorry. This has not worked

michelleclive :

did you see the spring

Customer:

No. Am I supposed to be looking under the ink cartridge holder?

michelleclive :

yes

michelleclive :

under the cartridge holder

Customer:

I have tried pulling towards me the small white tab under the cartridge holder .
It seems attached to a spring but I cannot see it.

michelleclive :

ok

michelleclive :

dont force it

michelleclive :

if it breaks it will void the warranty cover

michelleclive :

as its new and spring has got jammed, i would suggest to return this unit and get it exchanged for a new one

michelleclive :

stress for an exchange..if they do not agree to it, then also you can get this jam cleared through a service of the unit free of cost under warranty

michelleclive :

i will not suggest further steps as that will void the warranty cover

Customer:

I assume I have correctly installed this machine so far.

michelleclive :

i hope you understand that in case of jams i can suggest how to clear it but cannot get it fixed in case of internal jam

michelleclive :

yes you have

michelleclive :

its not your fault

michelleclive :

this may have happened due to incorrect handling when the unit was transported

michelleclive :

the spring might have got a jerk and got stuck

michelleclive :

we could use a screwdriver to remove it but then 1 year warranty cover will get void...so i would suggest to get this unit exchanged

michelleclive :

let me know if you have any questions

Customer:

I will contact supplier and arrange exchange hopefully.

Customer:
