Clarify: #Error appearing immediately with sudden ****? or while carriage parking in serve station area?# remove & take out service station, place it out side(to avoid capping/wiping by cleaners)..check
# check carriage bushing warn out condition( too much play of carriage causes this error)
# trailing cable flexibility good? or its obstructing the carriage path?
# take out cutter assembly from rail.. check..
# Check carriage belt tension, adjust if required.
# Check carriage belt properly installed? re-install again
Best of luck....

I have an hp c 3180. Changed the black ink cartridge, the carriage went left where it is now lodged... I need to get the carriage out where I can check to see if the cartidge is properly seated.


Hi Richard,
Please follow the steps below to make sure that the carriage can move freely and is properly seated. Check the carriage path. Press the Power button to turn the product on, if it is not already on. Open the cartridge access door. The carriage might try to move into the access area at the right. Allow the carriage to move to that position.

1. Open the cartridge door.

3. Without turning off the product, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the product.
WARNING: In the following steps, you move parts by hand. You must disconnect the power cord from the rear of the product to eliminate the risk of an electrical shock and to reset the paper-feed mechanism.

5. Look inside the product to see where the carriage is stuck, and then check for any torn paper or other objects that might restrict the carriage.

It's stuck in place and won't move either left or right. When I hit a key it types that letter, but the paper doesn't move to the next space


If it is stuck in the middle of the page it probably has a carriage lock usually just below the carriage on the R. or L. side.

That error is a carriage travel error, the printhead is not moving freely. Most often paper scraps either on the extreme right side where the printhead parks, or on the extreme left side where it's hard to see.

Unable to init


That error is very general, usually just a piece of paper caught either on the extreme right or left hand sides driven there by the carriage assembly after a jam. You need a flashlight to see and also pull the carriage out of the right side, carefully, to look where the printhead parks when shut down.

    Carriage jam on hp photosmart printer


    The print carriage may get stuck on either side or in the middle of the printer. The Carriage Jam: Open Door, clear carriage jam, and then press OK to continue error message may display on the front panel of the all-in-one.

    Solution
    The print carriage is the device which contains the print head and moves left to right during printing.
    Figure 1: Carriage Assembly

    To resolve this issue, follow the steps below in the order presented.

    Step one: Print a Self Test

    Follow the steps below:
    1. Press the Setup button.
    2. Select Print Report and press OK .
    3. The self-test page should print. If it prints a test page, there is no need to follow the remaining steps, as the error message may be false. Make sure the printer now prints from the computer (if installed on one). If it does not print, proceed to the step two.

    Step two: Clear the paper path

    Follow the steps below to clear the printer of any jammed paper and reset the printer.
    1. Leave the printer on and then disconnect the power cable and the USB or Ethernet cable from the back of the printer. Do not reconnect them until instructed to later.

    NOTE: Make sure the printer is on before disconnecting the power cord. Failure to disconnect the power cord from the rear of the unit can cause damage when removing jammed paper.

    2. Open the top access door.

    Figure 2: Opening the top access door

    3. Make note of where the carriage is stuck and look for jammed paper. A paper jam can cause the error message and the carriage stall. Some paper may be jammed in different locations than those shown in the photos below.

    Figure 3: Paper jammed on the left side

    Figure 4: Top view of paper jammed on the left side

    Figure 5: Paper jammed on the right side

    Figure 6: Top view of paper jammed on the right side

    NOTE: Do not use any tools or other devices to remove jammed paper. Always use caution when removing jammed paper from inside the unit.

    If the carriage is stuck on the right side:
    a. Check for any paper or object that may be restricting the carriage.
    b. Move carriage all the way to the left side.
    c. Check the paper path all the way to the right side and remove any paper still in the printer.

    If the carriage is stuck on the left side:
    d. Check for any paper or object that may be restricting the carriage.
    e. Move carriage all the way to the right side.
    f. Check the paper path all the way to the left side and remove any paper still in the printer.

    If the carriage is stuck in the middle:
    g. Check for any paper or object that may be restricting the carriage.
    h. Move carriage all the way to the left side.
    i. Check the paper path all the way to the right side and remove any paper still in the printer.
    j. Move carriage all the way to the right side.
    k. Check the paper path all the way to the left side and remove any paper still in the printer.
    4. Remove the rear access door or duplexer (if installed) from the back of the printer.
    5. Check for and remove any paper still in the printer.
    6. Replace the rear access door, and close the top access door.
    7. Reconnect only the power cable. If the printer does not automatically turn on, press the Power button.

    NOTE: The printer may go through a warm-up period of up to two minutes. Lights may flash and the carriage may move. Wait until this warm-up period is complete before going to the next step.

    8. If the Power light is on steady, print a self-test page as done in Step one.

    If the Power light is not on steady and the carriage is still in a stalled position, proceed to the next step.

    Step three: Plug the printer directly into a wall outlet

    Verify that the printer is properly connected to a suitable power source by following the instructions below.
    1. Verify that the computer and the printer have a three-prong power plug.
    2. Remove the printer cable from any power strips or surge suppressors, and plug it directly into a grounded (three-prong) wall outlet.
    3. Try the print job again to see if this step resolved the issue.

    NOTE: If the printer prints when plugged directly into a wall outlet while disconnected from any power strips or surge suppressors, the power strip or surge suppressor may not be allowing sufficient voltage to reach the product.

    4. If this did not resolve the issue, proceed to the next step.

    Step four: Service the product

    If you have completed all of the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service your product.hope this helps

    The correctional tape isn't popping up to white-out the errors. Instead the actual ink is typing where it should be correcting making the letters bold. I tried tightening the correctional ribbon and the...


    Hello. I had a similar problem, and Upstatoes helped me. Mine started with striker stuck forward, and then went to working for a few days, but sticking forward again And it was caused by the spring not being in the right place. But the correction tape housing is pushed up and pulled down by the white, adjustable piece on the right side, that has the screw holding it into the adjustment place. If you take off the ink ribbon, push the carriage to middle, and turn on the typewriter, there will be a switch at the top left of the keyboard, on the underside, you will need to flick with your finger, one time, as the carriage moves to the left. This is the reference switch, and you will be tricking the typewriter into thinking it is now in the left side start position. After this, you can see the white adjuster piece on the right side of the carriage, and, as you type a letter, also see if it is holding down the correction tape housing. Then when you hit the erase key, see if the cam on the inside (looking through the small holes in the correction tape housing) turns and pushes up this housing? It may be the tab in the white adjuster is not inside the grove of this cam. Either way, at that point, you may be able to see if something else is not as it should be? My problem was the long side of the spring was not underneth the white adjuster. (I had been putting it under the housing, and it was not helping ot push everything up like it should be.) Aparently this cam with the white adjuster tab in the groove holds everything down, easily, as you type, but has to have the spring help to push up when you use the earse key.
