Probably the carriage bar needs lubricating.

This is the shiny steel bar that runs right across the inside of the printer, that the print carriage runs along.

First switch off the printer!!

Wipe it clean with strong tissues/soft cloth dampened with alcohol.

Then put light lubricating oil onto a clean tissue/ cloth, and wipe the bar with this. DO NOT spray lubricant into the printer - don't use an excess of it either.

If you want to clean the bar fully, right to the end where the head usually sits - operate the printer - and whilst the print-head is in the middle of the bar, pull out the mains lead. This will leave the carriage in the middle of the bar, and you can freely move it by hand. You otherwise can't move it from it's parking position when the prnter is off.
