Mine was doing this today and I found a push pin had fallen into it and was inside where the ink slides. I couldn't see it until I got a flashlight in there. Once I removed it, all was good and it works well again!

I don't know your printer so this may not be the problem.
Check inside with a flashlight and look for a plastic band laying in the wrong place; this is a clear ribbon with very fine vertical lines on it that the printer uses to 'count off' its position. Normally, a printer will go to one or the other end so it knows where to start counting to determine where it must go and identify its arrival at a particular character position as directed by the software sending the data.
These bands can break or become contaminated so it is no longer clear where the carriage is or where to go next.
If you find such a band and it is intact, clean it gently with glass cleaner and soft cloth or paper towel and reinstall it, threading it through the slot in the carriage where the optical path is located that 'reads' the stripes.
All printers using this type of technology will have one static hook for one end and a second that is a leaf spring with a hook for the other end of the band.

The ink carrier has a clear carrier jam message...


If the printer carrier is slamming into the side of the printer, please try the following:
  1. Disconnect the power supply from the back of the printer.
  2. Open the front cover of the printer where the cartridges are located.
  3. Look for two black bands that span from left to right (they should have one serrated side and one smooth side). Just above the black bands there is a transparent strip; this strip is called the Encoder strip.
  4. Flick this strip lightly with your finger to make sure that it is running smoothly from left to right. You may need to do this two or three times. CAUTION: Do not pull the strip!
  5. Close the front cover of the printer and reconnect the power supply.
  6. If the problem persists, then its a hardware issue and you should contact Lexmark for replacement of the printer.

Dell 942 carrier jam


This morning I replaced the cartridges in the Dell 942 printer, they jammed to the left which made a loud grinding noise and the cartridge jam error came on.

I solved the problem by turning the printer on with the top up which moved the cartridges to the right a little so I could reach back, push one down a little manually which freed them to move over to the middle.

Carriage jam


This can be many things, but inspect the paper path for anything stuck. remove the cartridges with printer off and see if you can manually move the carriage you may need to force it a little but not allot, sometimes it may jump a gear causing this error.
move the carriage away from home position and turn on, the printer should reset the carriage position.

hope this helps

Carrier jam on dell 924 printer??


I was able to fix this issue on my all-in-one 944 printer. What happened was that one of the ink cartridge lids had popped open. The hard part was that the carrier was stuck on the far left side, and I wasn't able to pull it over for easer access. However, I was able to fit a finger in and push the cartridge back down. Then when I turned the printer back on the error went away.

Hope this helps
