I have a HP OfficeJet 5610 inkjet printer that after I changed the print cartridges and the printer goes into alignment keeps reporting that "Carriage Paper Jam'. After checking that I have no paper...


Hello,

Ok you already tried the majority of the troubleshooting process. The next thing I would try personally is removing the software/driver for the printer and reinstalling.

This typically fix's an unusual problem like that, as the cause could be on the software side of the printer and not the hardware itself.

Post back if you have any further question's or comments. Thank you for choosing Fixya.

Paper jam on my Lexmark Z42


So I assume the computer is coming up with this error, Do you know whether there is paper in the printer or not that is causing this error or does the printer just think there is?

The outside panels should open up and you should see some rollers which may have paper stuck in them. Check for stuck paper or any other object and simply pull it out. Pulling paper out the way it went in won't wreck the printer.

If there isn't any object, you can try resetting the printer by unplugging it and the plugging it back in.

Let me know it neither of the above suggestions work or if you just need some more help or can provide more information on this.

thanks

When the printer starts to print, one line gets printed- then the paper sticks. The printer says "Clear the Carrier Stall". what does that mean?


Paper Jam...try to clean your printer, get a can of dust off (compressed air) and blow it out. Then take a damp (unplug printer first) and clean the paper rollers. Keep an eye out for anything sticking to the rollers, ink mist build up, or sticker from labels, or just glue from stickers.
Hope this helps you, please leave a rating.

Can't print & causes a paper jam.


Take a can of BlowOff compressed air and blow out any thing that shouldn't be in there, crumbs, stickers, glue from lables, Also get a damp cloth and gently wash off the paper rollers (those black rollers on a bar that advance the paper through the printer.
If you still have a problem with actual printing, you might try removing the drivers (add and remove programs-control panel) and look on the dell site for updated drivers for that all-in-1
Fresh driver can sometimes help.
And I hope this helped, please leave a rating,
Thank you kindly

The paper to be printed always loads crooked and jams on the right side like it pulls the paper to quick


well, the internal mecanism of your printer is already worn, or defective. the troner is bad. if its a printer less than 100 bucks, just get a new one, if its a really expensive one, then u need a printer expert, that has the parts for that issue.

The top light - triangle w/ ! inseide keeps blinksing and we are unable to print


obviously your prblem is your printer... its either there has been a paper jam on your computer.. try to check the paper tray and look for something that has jammed your printer.. take it out..

another option woud be to try to view the status monitor of your printer. it is usually located at the system tray of your desktop... you can view there what is exactly happening to your printer..
