HP Officejet D145 Carriage Error, close latch

Hi everyone.

I have a problem with my officejet.

When I turn it on the error reads

"Carriage error, close latch, press enter."

I have tried taking printheads out, turning off, then turning on, and replacing printheads as instructed on

Still no luck.

Anyone got anymore ideas I could try?


I had that on my HP7140xi, which I infer from other posts is much the same as a D145. The problem was in the carriage parking area and ink dump. Solution was to take it all apart and clean out the ink area. Re-seated the couple of connectors in that area, reassembled and it worked fine for months.
Now has other 'issues' though, and will shortly be going out of the window.
