Canon Printer iP3600. enough paper/inks, but horrendous grinding

This answer was rated:

Canon Printer iP3600.
enough paper/inks, but horrendous grinding noise when ink trolley moves left to right, - no apparent paper trapped, but dosnt print.
Q. Can I fix it or get a worthwhile repair?
Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question. I don't think that you will be able to fix this kind of problem. Especially not if it has been long-standing, which points toward a manufactured-that-way,-badly sort of problem. For the ink carriage moving with apparent noisy difficulty, that could be a problem with either electronic controls, or similar defect(s). The best chance at a worthwhile repair, would be if the printer were still within 1 year of its original purchase date. That would mean, Canon would fix it under warranty terms, free-of-charge. (Provided you still have records of the purchase date - a sales slip, or credit card records, for instance.)
