I have an Epson Photo R230 which is telling me that the print head carrier is obstructed. There is no visible obstruction. Can anyone provide help or advice on opening it up and repairing the problem

Print head obstruction is picked up by sensing the load on the motor.

There need not be an actual physical obstruction — just that for some reason the sensor is registering an excessive load, which might be that the power drain has for some reason increased, or the sensor circuit considers it has.

The firmware in these things is often dubious and false readings are not uncommon.

I assume you've tried disconnecting the printer (switch off at the wall) for long enough to allow all trace of power to die away.

Check your PM's.
