When printer turns on the ready light
shows ok then after a few seconds the
ink cartridge moves back and forth a
few inches then it crashes to the very
left then all the lights start to flash
. Any suggestions on how one can fix
this.

Thanks in advance

That's usually caused by the roller engage arm popped out of position. The carriage hits it and engages the roller drive to pick up the paper. If it's up out of its normal resting place the carriage slams into it. Gently lift the arm and drop the front end into the square recess to the right of the large gear.
