Carriage Error

Written By admin on October 10, 2009 | 4:41 PM

This is one of most common problem of Canon inkjet printer. The error happens when carriage unit (carriage part) is faulty so that carriage unit cannot read film encoder properly. As a result, carriage unit movement no more under printer board's control.
But note that in some cases, dirty film timing slit strip (Horizontal film encoder;available in Canon i series,pixma series) may cause the same symptom.

Remedial action:
  • Replace carriage unit
  • Wipe film timing slit strip with moistened clothes
  • Replace film timing slit strip
