The same thing happens.
windows 8.1 my desk top PC
when I downloaded, got the message "There are no firmware updates available"
recently I used Lazertran Inkjet paper (waterslide decal paper for inkjet printers) It worked fine for abour 12 copies
Yes, the paper that goes straight through is "Multi premium high white matt paper 100gsm. have been using this for sometime.
Message " Printhesd cartridge jam...etc" there seems to be no obstruction and installation of printhead and cartrideges appear ok. This did happen a few times before & then corrected itself, but happens each time now.
No they don't move over automaticaly. I have just found a short piece of broken spring type wire inside at one end
The printer quite a few years old now. The carriage moves by hand, but it is a little stiff
Have done that. The craddle moved fairly freely. Cannot recalibrate, as printhead jam message shows all the time. When I press ok, the carraige makes a few 'clunking ' noises. I guess it must be damaged!
I think it would be more sensible to replace the printer. It is not under warranty. I will do my own research for a new one. I know that Kodak do not make printers any more. Anyway thanks for your help.
