Print head jam

Problem: Print head jams when trying to return from first pass at left end of carriage when starting to print general error message, (delete all print jobs and turn printer off, etc) There are no foreign objects or visible problems Red Ink error light comes on and is non flashing, red paper light and green printer light start flashing. Turn printer off, then on, paper feeds halfway, red error lights go out, print head slowly crawls back to start, paper ejects, printhead makes one pass to end of carriage, returns and parks, printer light stays on non flashing, no error lights. I have left it disconnected, I have tried re-installing, nothing successful, same error repeats. It first arose after re-alignment process. Cartridges are in correctly.

    Techman: Interesting site, I agree about the ink drinking, just hoped there may be a magic quick fix, like a secret mfr. re-set button or the like.......,
    anyway, guess it will have to go to the Epson graveyard.

Print head jam


Check the LCD on your printer control panel or the status monitor on your computer for an error message. If there is an error message, follow the instructions to clear it.

If there is no error message, or if the problem continues:

  1. Open the access door.
  2. Disconnect the power adapter from the back of the printer.
  3. CAUTION: Do not use force on the printhead carriage to move it. Gently move the printhead carriage from side to side to see that it moves freely and there are no obstructions.
  4. Remove any obstructions that may prevent the printhead carriage and ink cartridges from moving to the center position.
  5. Close the access door.
  6. Connect the power adapter to the printer.
  7. Remove the ink cartridges from the printhead.
  8. Verify that the labels on the ink cartridges are intact, and that the cartridges are not damaged.
  9. firmly until you hear it click into position.

The Carriage Jam error message displays on the control panel display. The print carriage, which holds the ink cartridges, stalls against the left side of the printer. A paper jam might have occurred previously.

Carriage jam - Turn machine on, get carriage jam message, however the carriage can move freely if moved by hand. If I close and hit enter, carriage sounds like it's moving, then I get the error message...


Sorry about the B.S., you can move the carriage by hand, and all you need is to clean the encoder strip that runs across behind the carriage assembly. You can wipe the strip gently with an alcohol swab or a Q-tip moist with alcohol. The bars on that strip tell the carriage where it is and grease or ink on it will give the carriage jam error. No calibration necessary after moving the head or cleaning the strip.

Printer made machine gun noise. will not print.


The print head is stuck - something has jammed it and the noise you are hearing is the carriage for the print head. Open the top and try moving the head by head sideways to see what has jammed it.

Carriage jam


I had a "carriage jam" error message.

My son wiped down the metalic strip that tells the carriage where it is. It worked for a couple of days and then the "carriage jam" message came back.

I took my 7210 apart, found nothing wrong with it and put it back together. I noticed that if I pushed the print carriage all the way to the left, closed the lid, and pressed "OK", the print carriage would move a couple of inches to the right. It did this repeatedly. I figured the motor was working, but there was too much friction on the carriage. I put some 3-in-one oil on my finger and put a thin coat on the front, top, and back of the rod that the print carriage rides on. I then ran the carriage back and forth about 20 times. I closed the lid and it works fine.

I had the same problem with my DVD player. The head was hanging up on the two chrome plated rods that supported the head. I put some 3-in-one oil on the rods, ran the head back and forth, and it has worked ever since.
