Error Message: Cannot seek CR home position

This error indicates that the printhead carriage can’t move back into its resting position on the far right* of the printer.

Other Indicators:

  • Printhead/Carriage moves freely even after turning printer off/on
  • Printhead does not lock into position on the far right

Possible causes include:

  • Paper or some other junk has fallen into the path of the printhead and is stopping it from moving
  • The printhead cleaning pad/station has popped up out of position and is blocking the printhead path


Resolving the problem depends on the actual cause but obviously returning any printer parts to their normal position and removing any foreign objects should help.



*When the printer is located facing you
