My carriage was jammed over to the left & would not move. This happened after a piece of paper got stuck. I got all the paper out but the carriage was jammed. After trying many things & becoming frustrated, I decided to push it to the right as far as I could. What did I have to lose? I was ready to junk the thing. But with the hard pushing it clicked over something & started moving. I guess the paper had pushed it off the track. Works fine now. Hope this helps someone.

If nothing else works as it did for me, open up everything and reposition the carriage in its tracks. To do so:

Here is what I did and it fixed it.

1) Open door so print heads move to the center
2) Unplug the unit. (Don't turn off, just unplug!)
3) Open back door
4) Look inside the back left side for a small black gear (About the size of a quarter)
5) Spin the gear with a screw driver (I'm pretty sure I spun it clockwise). Spin it and watch the inside of the printer where the print heads park. You should see a tray move out that has four rubber blue rectangles on it on the right side of the unit (this is where the print heads park when the unit is not printing).
6) Keep spinning the gear until the plate moves all the way forward.
7) Grab the plate and try moving it forward more.
8) Put the back on and close the top.
9) Turn the unit back on.
10) Open the top again
11) Unplug the unit again. (Don't turn off, just unplug!)
12) Grab the tray, from step 5, and slide it all the way forward and all the way back multiple times.
13) Make sure that the print heads slide left to right smoothly
14) Remove ink cart's and clean the contacts with bottled water and a q-tip. LET DRY BEFORE REINSTALLING!!!
15) Remove print heads and clean contacts with bottled water and q-tip. LET DRY BEFORE REINSTALLING!!!
16) Clean the inside of the printer with a soft dry cloth, use a slightly damp, with bottled water, lint free cloth (Glasses cleaning cloth works well) and wipe off the rollers in the front and back of the unit. See HP's cruddy support site for details on this step.
17) Hold down #7 (reprimes the printheads with ink) and plug in the unit

If needed also turn off and do a #6 to reset the unit.

Do all the above at your own risk! It worked for me but might not work for you.

Good luck,

Taran

SOURCE: Carriage Jam error always - how do I fix it?

Try resetting the printer (pressing the cancel button and connecting the power supply, check in the HP website if this is correct for your printer model) , after the reset the printer will clear any errors and will recalibrate the mechanism including the paper feed mechanism and the carriage.
Also check if the carriage is moving freely by disconnecting the power and moving it by hand.

SOURCE: error - carriage jam message

My Photosmart 2610 just started having this same problem today. As many of you have done, I also went to the hp support website and tried just about everything. Finally I discovered the answer to my problem on my own. Here's what I did (you might want to have a wet rag handy to wipe the ink off your fingers):

1) With the printer on, I pressed "okay" to clear the error message. You should immediately hear the sound of the carriage (the contraption that holds the cartridges) moving inside.

2) Open the print cartridge access door (the main access point for the cartridges) and confirm that the carriage is indeed moving.
If the carriage won't move at all, I'm not sure that this solution will help you. However, if the carriage moves from side to side after you press "okay", please read on.

3) This is unorthodox, so bear with me: when the carriage moves away from it's "resting place" (in my printer it's on the right hand side) and is near the center of the printer, unplug the power cord from the printer. The purpose of this is to free up the undercarriage (which was the part that actually was jammed on my printer).

4) Ensure that the carriage moves freely from left to right and right to left by pushing gently on its sides.

5) Move the carriage to left side of the printer so you have room to access the undercarriage.

6) It might be helpful to have a flashlight or some other light targeting the undercarriage for this next part. If you look directly underneath the undercarriage, you should see a foam/spongy product resting in the base of the printer. The purpose of the sponge is to absorb any ink that escapes from the cartridges. Herein lies the problem: over time, as the undercarriage adjusts to enable the carriage and its cartridges to do their work, the undercarriage gets caught on the inky sponge. Note that the undercarriage is fragile, but is moveable by gently pushing it toward the front or back of the printer.

7) Adjust the undercarriage so you can see the sponge and the "axel" (for lack of a better term) that turns to move the undercarriage forward and back. It may take some detective work, but you should be able to determine where the sponge is supposed to lie. Your goal here is to push the sponge down as far as it will go so that it won't obstruct the movements of the undercarriage.

8) On my printer, there was also a small amount of sponge wrapped around the "axel" that prevented it from moving smoothly. I unwrapped it and double-checked that nothing else was obstructing movement.

9) Final step: leave everything where you moved it, shut the lid, and plug it back in. A little prayer never hurts either. Good luck! AIM ID if you need more help: GnarlyVeaux

We have a fellowes shredder. It got full and jammed. After cleaning and emptying it will not turn on. Is there a reset button? Thanks. Betn


We've found that when the container is overfilled with shredded paper, it will begin pulling shredded paper back into the cutters and jamming the machine. Sometimes reversing the machine will spit the paper back up, but if it is thoroughly jammed, only way to unjam it is to UNPLUG it first, then manually remove the paper from the cutters. Then, be sure to dump the container BEFORE it is filled with paper.

Commutative property of multiplication 3*7*2=


If there was a question it is not clear. I will show you what commutativity works. Whether that answers your lack of question remains to be seen.
Commutativity of multiplication (or the commutative property of multiplication) means that the order of the factors in a product does not affect the result. In other word, the order of factors is unimportant.
3*7+2 =7*3+2=23
2*7*3=2*3*7=7*2*3=7*3*2=3*2*7=3*7*2=42
