My Printer an HPpsc 2210 all in one tells me to open door and clear cartrige jam then press enter. I have done this but there is no cartrige jam The cartriges do not move to the centre when the door is open. I have turned the machine off and on but that has not helped.

1. Remove the rear access door and the rear panel. The panel is held in place by two T10 Torx head screws. There is also a hidden latch near the bottom on the right and left side of the rear panel, a bit tricky to unlatch but patience will prevail.
2. Looking from the rear, disconnect the three cables on the left. Take note of how the two ribbon style cables are plugged in because they can be rotated 180 degrees when replugged.
3. Open the printer as if you are going to change the cartridges, then release the latches on the left and right and the scanner will rotate upward and lift off.
4. There are several T10 screws (they are obvious) that need to be removed and the rest of the case, a top and the two side covers, will come off.

or go for service...

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The carriage jam error indicates that there is blockage along the path of the printhead. If there is none and yet the warning message persist, then most likely, the encoder strip is smudged. The encoder strip is the long narrow clear plastic strip that guides and tells the printer where it is. It would have small bars almost like barcodes for this purpose. It the "barcodes" or the clear window in between is blocked, smudged with ink or absent, the the print head cannot move and will conclude that it is jammed.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

HP PSC 2210 has the error message 'Open Door, Clear Carriage Jam, and then Press Enter'. No paper jams present?


Check door for paper stuck in front of sensor. There is a door in the back look to see if paper shred is in there infront of the back door sensor.

Clear carriage jam


The carriage assembly is what the ink cartridges moves on. The silver bar that runs through the cartridge holder must be oiled. Put two or three drops of thin oil oun iether sides of the cartridge holder. This should clear the "carriage error"



Good Luck

Cartridge jams


remove the cartridge and directly off the printer let the carriage remain in center.then with your hand manually move the carriage from left to right.3 to 4 times.then on the printer and insert the cartridge after cleaning it with dry tissue.then check out.also in the back side of the printer there is access door to remove the paper if jammed so check out there also if any paper jammed.
thanks.
