Question about HP Officejet 7210 All-In-One InkJet Printer
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.

I have the same problem... it took me 6 hours to solve the problem...
trying to use lubricants and done some cleaning, but no luck... till i
found out that using an extension cord with several devices plugged in
will lessen the amount of current that flows to the devices.. that's
why the printer's motor can't able to do his job because of no enough
power.... Connect the printer's plug directly to the wall...
it works for me....

I took my 7250 all-in-one apart and didn't find anything wrong with it. So, I put it back together.
One thing I did notice is that if you slide the print carriage all the way to the left, close the lid, and press "OK", the print carriage moves a couple of inches to the right, so the drive motor must be working. I put a little 3-in-oil on my finger and rubbed oil on the top/back/front of the entire chrome plated bar that the carriage rides on. Then I slide the carriage back and forth, from limit to limit, about 20 times.
It works fine now. The "print carriage jam" warning is GONE!
I had the same problem with my DVD player. The head kept getting hung up. I put a little 3-in-one oil on the two chrome plated rods that the head slid on and it is fixed!
I think there is too much drag on the carriage and the motor is complaining. Not enough margin in the system.

SOURCE: Won't print. Message says
It is giving carriage jam not a paper jam the carriage is the part which carries cartridges on it. It seems your carriage is jam and can't move left and right so open the door and try to move your carriage with the help of rubber roller which moves your printer. Also clean the steel road on which the carriage moves just check at the corner of cartridge carriage if any paper bit is stuck or excessive paper dust has jammed it. If this does not solves your problem kindly comment back.
