The printhead could not be moved until I found a white fitting that swiveled back which was blocking it. Moved the head back and forth and left it in the middle. Plugged in and got no recalibration and same error showing.
Now showing just a lightening sign in a triangle. Print head not moving.
It started flashing with number 2 and letter P. I will do what you suggest and let you know. Thanks, Freddy, so far. Philip
Did clean up, replaced both cartridges with new. Not sure if I did the right sequence in starting up. I inserted the cartridges, switched of and unplugged, waited 70 seconds, plugged back in and got same error - P and 2 flashing. Tried centering the print head as before, no luck.
Just the P and 2 and the plain paper light is flashing
Cleaned the carriage and strip, also found contact points under the cartridges which I cleaned. Plugged in switched on and got P and 2 flashing, as before.
Looks like we are running out of options and I will have to bin it with all the ink I had to import [I live in Barbados and couldn't get it locally].
Have done as first thing, just in case I checked again and nothing visible. Spent enough time on this and its all going into the bin!
Thanks for trying. Philip
