Dear it's the carriage jam error. so it mean that your carriage is jam not paper. so open the printer where you insert the cartridge. check whether it is jam or what . cartridge carrier is jam kindly turn off the printer and try to move the cartridge head by hand very gently and if seems to be stuck than check for anything which abort him to move freely so than might be anything like dust or else. when you get success in moving the head put some machine lubricant on the rod on which head moves and check it ok.

My HP photosmart PSC2410 XI printer is showing "clear carriage jam"what should I do?


Points to there being paper stuck in the feed rollers, if you have cleared the jam, there may be a shred of paper still stuck, try to examine and remove.

If it IS fully clear and the indicatiors still show a paper jam, check the feed rollers are making contact with the paper, that the paper detector has not been bent upwards ( fooling the printer into thinking that there is still a jam).

Try rebooting the printer, if the problem still shows, this is a job for a qualfied technician

If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your printer with no tasks in progress, then check for any piece of paper stuck in the carriage. Remove the paper carefully. If the paper tears, part of it might remain inside the paper path and damage the product.

Follow the steps for fix HP Printer Carriage Jam

  • Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.
  • Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side.
  • Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path.
  • Reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer.

Try to reset the device by turning the device off and unplugging it for a few minutes - then plug it back in and power back up. Sometimes being powered off will clear the jam sensors.

Paper jams


Had this problem, too with HP PSC 1610 AIO, paper would pull in part way and stop, then display would indicate: Paper Jam, Clear Jam and Press OK, but there was no paper in the path at all. Found in HP forums that possibly the problem was a broken off piece that may be called the "x-bias" lever which is on a little spring inside the printer just to the left of the carriage bay on the right side of the device. There are two photos of "broken" and "not broken" at this forum site:
http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/bizsupport/questionanswer.do?threadId=1085918
Since HP does not sell the little part to repair it, I phoned HP and got a good "trade-in, trade-up" price for a better device. Hope this helps someone else find the answer to the constant paper jam issue, as I always appreciate the FixYa forum help from everyone else here, too.
