Can you confirm that the lid for the ink cartridge carriage is properly closed (if it has one)?

Does it appear that the cartridge may not be inserted all the way in place? It should click into place.

Please also check the the cartridge's (usually yellow) tape has been removed before insertion.

Hp 8180 says carriage jam but there is nothing in there and makes a loud grinding sound..


Look at the thin plastic strip when you open the printer. It may have an ink smudge on it. Use a cloth dampened with water and GENTLY wipe both sided of that strip, moving the cartridge holder across and wiping the entire strip. Then try again. That strip has little lines on it which signal the electronics where the carriage is. If any ink gets on it, the carriage can't count the lines and a jam will occur.

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.

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

Make sure that the printer cartridge has been placed in the holder correctly. If it isn't you might find it fouls the carriage as it tries to move.

I am receiving an error message on my HP Officejet 6110 printer screen that prevents the printer from functioning. The message is "Open door. Clear carriage jam and then press enter." I've tried opening...


yes, that is a carriage jam and not paper, the grinding is from the clean station that gets blocked with dried ink and cant move. you need to open the printer and clean the ink off of the clean station so it can clean properly and not cause a carriage jam.

Carriage Jam.


Try to remove and reinstall the Ink cartridges. Be sure it's lock in place on the cartridge holder. If you still see the error, the printer could be faulty. Call HP if the printer is still under warranty to replace it.

"Clear carriage jam" persistent error...


I got the error message about clearing the carriage and no matter how many times I turned it off, unpluged, turned in on again, checked for paper jams, etc, the printer could not get reset. But after much trial en error, the following procedure did the trick: Unplug the power cord and open the door. To the right side, you'll see the ink tray. Carefully pull it to the center and unistall the ink cartriges. Close the door, plug in the power cord and turn the printer on. It should ask you to install the left ink cartrige first. Do it and close the door again. Then it'll ask you to install the right cartrige. Do it as well and turn the printer off again. Turn it back on, let it initialized, and your printer should be ready to work again. I hope this work for you as it did for me. Good luck.
