Epson Epson LQ 850

Epson 850

The past few months a problem has developed. I am unable to get the printheads to move left so I can change ink carts.

Following the directions which say, "hold down the black/color cleaning button for three seconds and the printheads will move slightly left." I do that, and the printer goes through an entire cleaning cycle.

I have read a solution for this problem for an Epson 860, but it didn't work on the 850, dang it--

Any pointers?

Have you tried pressing the paper feed button then as the carriage moves you pull the plug.

That will usually do the trick.

I hope this helps,
