Power off your Printer and then you need to clean the Roller, carriage rack with a clean cotton and some oil (lubricant oil can be used.

Remove the cartridge and clean its nozzle and Contact strips. Then after contact strip of Carriage rack as well as internal part of printer.

Move manually two or three times and then plug it again.

Hope it will works!

Regards,
Scott

If you lift the lid to get access to the cartridges, there should be a diagram showing you how to unjam the carriage. I have a 564, & it has that feature.

Try reset your printer by following this procedure to reset it,

1. Without turning the unit off, unplug the power cord from the back of the product.
2. Press and hold # and 6 keys.
3. While holding those keys plug the power cord back in.
4. Wait until the screen goes blank before you release those keys.
5. Follow on printer screen instructions.

Or

. Turn the printer power off.
2. Press and hold GO.
3. Turn the printer power back on and continue to hold GO until the Attention light turns on.

I just changed the (2) ink cartridges in my HP PCS 1610 All-in-One HP printer and now get an error message "CARRIAGE JAM - OPEN DOOR. CLEAR CARRIAGE JAM, AND THEN PRESS OK." I don't see any jam...


Have you tried moving the carriage to see if it really is jammed? Maybe you haven't put the levers down properly on your new cartridges....remove them, see if the carriage slides, then refit them and check the carriage again. You wont visually 'see' a carriage jam,; you have to try moving it. By the way, if it doesn't move, DONT force it to try and overcome the jam try and reason out why it doesn't move.
Hope this helps!

hello, you might want to pull carriage from the right to the left, check to see if there is some paper in the right hand area, clear it out, then try again.

I have a paper jam that I can't locate, any ideas? I have tried all the standard methods for unjamming but I just don't see any more paper.


I asumme you have checked all visible compartments front and rear, Tip, use a strong torch, shows up tiny piece's that you happen to over look. Yes I have missed the little B*****S too!

If all clear, open top, move print carriage to the the middle, check area where carriage parks up,

Tip. Be gentle with me, the poota would say this, if they could speak?

Jammed Cartridge


You need to clean the encoder strip, the clear strip behind the carriage. You can wipe it carefully with a damp Qtip because with too much ink on it the carriage thinks it's not moving.

Hp photosmart printer 7350


Turen the machine off
Unplug it from the wall
open the paper jam door and gently push the paper roller upward until it clicks.
close the door.
Plug it back in
Wait a few minutes
then turn the printer on and see if the carriage moves.

This is a simple general reset of theprinter and sometimes it will help with this sort of problem. Let me know if it helps or not.
