HP psc950 Printer - Help please

nigndids, Dec 7, 2:09am
Printer has been in storage for a couple of years while we were overseas and the cartridge carriage is stuck on the right hand side. I have tried everything short of a hammer to free it up.

Any ideas please.

HP are no help due to the age of the printer - it is an original 7 or 8 years old.

Printers are so cheap these days you can pick up good ones, even with wireless for around $150 - $200, I wouldn't waste your time taking it anywhere to get fixed if you cant do it yourself, also the printer head might be stuffed if its that old.

Thanks rahto - I think the printer head should be ok it hasn't had very high usage.

HP printers (or the old ones anyway) have the print head in the cartridge so everytime you change the cartridge you get a new printhead.

I'm still using my HP PSC750 - cheap as chips HP15 remanufacturered cartridges.

Probably rusted onto rail. You might have to give it a spray with crc or similar, leave it overnight and then give it a short, sharp whack with something other than a hammer.
