I have had the chattering happen on my 1200. Its an easy fix if it is the same problem. Take a paper towel and clean the main silver carriage bar. Excessive ink on this bar is usually the cause for this noise and subsequent printing problems. Excessive ink on the bar may come from changing a cartridge or just by taking it in & out other than for changing. On the 1200- get to the right side of the bar by unplgging it when the carriage is on the left.
