I had the same problem and finally solved it this way. After hours of trying to find out where this carriage was, to no avail, I finally decided to move the printer head by hand, which was way over on the right side and I found out it is also the carriage. I unplugged the printer and slid the carriage all of the way to the left, looked back in there using a flashlight and low and behold there was a wad of paper, it took some doing to get it out. What fooled me was that when the message came up i took the back off and there was two 4x6 pieces of photo paper jammed in back, I removed them and thinking that's all there were, I never thought to look for any more paper.

Hope this helps

My hp photosmart printer is saying Error carriage jam, open dorr clear carriage jam and then press Ok to continue. Which door should I open and how do I clear the carriage jam? Linda

Without any paper in the machine I would try powering off and powering on. Lifting the scanner lid will clear so the carrige goes back to the correct side of the printer. Even rebooting the printer and loading the software will sometimes cause the carriage to go back to where it was supposed to be.

Clear carriage jam -hp d7460

Carriage jam usually comes from ink on the clear encoder strip that runs across behind the carriage. You need a damp Q-tip to clean from one end to the other, The other thing, on the HP is the cleaning station on the right gets gummed up with old ink and won't go toward the back fully, stopping the carriage.
