Carriage jam error statement on hp photosmart c6180 printer

Error statemtn - Carriage jam

Posted by on

  • dazzak Sep 13, 2008

    Carriage jam error occurs. The carriage drive belt, seems to loop around and under the print heads. When the printer powers the drive wheel up, there doesnt seem to be enough tension in the belt to enable the drive wheel to grip the belt and move the carriage back and forward. Hence the wheel just spins.

    I have the same error message yet the carriage moves freely from side to side. I called HP and they could not fix it on the phone.
    Any solutions out there?

The error is saying carriage jammed. where is the carriage?


the carriage is the part that holds the ink cartridges. See if anything is blocking it. You can take it outside and turn it upside down and see if anything falls out.Be gentle .
