I gave my machine the usual Friday night nozel wash and a good cleaning. Jv130spII BTW .... I came in saturday morning (very rare for me) and I start the machine up and I hear this weird noise when the wiper is supposed to be wiping the heads. Sounds like a little muffled grinding sound, I peered underneath and it seems like the wiper is stuck and won't slide out. I then proceeded to get in there and give it a look. When I open the carriage the wiper came down and it was a bit messy in there which is weird as I just cleaned everything last night. I cleaned the wiper thouroghly and I wipe down the two steel rods that carry the wiper and everywhere that ink can gum up. I do see down the right side towards the back there is a metal piece that juts out a bit and it is absolutely black with ink although I have cleaned there before I don't think it is anywhere close to a point that could stop the wiper from moving. I cleaned it anyways and under the cover at the back in front of the sponge. I have never replaced the sponge and I have had the machine coming up to 2 years now. I even clean off the top of the black nylon or rubberbelt. I wonder what else it could be as the wiper came down when I opened the carriage yet seemed to be stuck when wiping the heads. Any Ideas?
