Epson Epson Stylus Color 640

Epson 640 slamming carriage

When printing on my 640, everything starts out ok then makes a grinding/squealing noise and then starts slamming the carriage to the extreme ends.
The belt seems ok upon visual inspection.
Any ideas to remedy the situation or is the printer toast?
Thank you
Clean and oil the carriage guide shaft. Read this link for details. http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/glide.html

I hope this helps,
