Re: Okay, me & my 740



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.
