Hp officejet 4630 carriage jam


Check first:
Are you printing correctly? Are the papers in their correct position? Look the picture below, is it 100% identical to how your printer looks right now?
hp-officejet-4630-carriage-jam-g3kwcv4s0uxqjd0jsmqlsidv-5-0.png There are a few ways:
1. Open the cartridge access door and remove any obstruction in the movement of the cartridges.
2. Re-install cartridges.
3. Plug the printer electric source directly into the wall outlet.
4. Check the picture above and check your alignments again.

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!

It seems you mistook Carriage Jam as Paper Jam, but they are different issues. Carriage jam means the carriage that carries the cartridges is jammed which needs to be moved or be cleared manually after opening the door.

Please follow the instructions mentioned here (Click Here) [source HP Support].

Good Luck.

Let me know if you need further help.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My display window says open door. clear carriage jam, and press enter. what is a carriage jam?


A cartridge jam, could be that one of your ink cartridge is not in all the way and causing the carriage to get stuck trying to find "HP". You may try to remove the ink cartridges and close the door / cover and let the printer find home and reinstall the cartridges agian... Good Luck

Carriage jam means the carriage, where you put the inks, can't move right to left properly. Sometimes ink on the clear strip behind it is the cause. You can carefully clean with damp Q-tip, and check also that the cleaning assembly on the right where the printhead parks, is not stuck.

Carriage jam error


The Jam error is most likely cause by one or more of the sensor flags these are the plastic usually black things hanging along the paper path. One of those are either stuck or broken. Check the path and look for those items.

Hp psc 750 cariage problem


Hmm...
Look inside the printer for anything that shouldn't be in there... like paper or dust.
Cariage jam is shown whenever the carriage is blocked by something... even the service station (the black container in the right where the cariage sleeps). With the printer cover open try to power up the unit. Look where the cariage stops. Ceck with a flashlight for any obstacles in that area. Olso verify if the service station is moving. It could be broken and the cariage cannot move away from it.
