SOURCE: Paper Jam

Causes of repeated paper jams If paper jams occur repeatedly, one of the following may be causing them: The paper is being pushed in too far. The paper should only be pushed in until the first resistance. Continuing to push the paper in will force the paper up into the paper rollers and will cause the printer to pull in multiple pages. Obstructions in the paper path. Open the all-in-one (front and back) and check for obstructions.

  • Unlocked rear access door. Follow the steps above to install the rear access door correctly (see Figure 3). If this condition is present, the paper will skew in the all-in-one.
  • The paper guides are not positioned against the paper. Adjust the paper length and width guides so they fit snugly against the paper.
  • Incorrect paper. The paper should be flat and smooth with no folded, torn, or rough edges. Papers with a glossy finish and coated papers may not feed into the unit correctly. Paper that has already been printed on once can also cause problems.
  • Partially installed paper tray. The paper tray must be inserted all of the way into the all-in-one.
  • Dirty paper feed rollers. Over time paper fibers and dust will stick to the rollers and should be removed.. Also verify that the rollers on the rear access door are clean and turn freely.
Check Paper light flashes but there isn't a paper related problem The check paper light may also flash if there are other problems. Verify the following conditions:
  • Verify that the print cartridge door is closed.
  • The print carriage may be jammed, follow these steps to correct the problem:
    1. Open the print cartridge access door. If the print carriage can move, it should move to center. If the print carriage stays all the way left, unplug the power cord and then plug it back in. This will reset the unit and may allow the print carriage to move from the left.
    2. Disconnect the power cord from the all-in-one.
    3. Remove both print cartridges.
    4. Move the print carriage left and right slightly to verify that the print carriage will move freely. If the print carriage will not move freely, check for obstructions.
    5. Close the print cartridge access door.
    6. Plug the power cord back in.
    7. After the all-in-one initializes, the print cartridge light will flash. Open the access door and install the print cartridges.
    8. Close the print cartridge access door. If the problem returns, remove the print cartridges and wipe the electrical contacts before reinstalling them.
  • Try to make a copy. If it pulls in paper but cannot make a copy, there may be a problem with the scanner mechanism

SOURCE: How to Clear carriage jam

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.

Hp psc 2175 all in one keep saying remove and check cartridge


Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

My HP 2175 PRINTER keeps giving me an error


Check the default paper settings in the printer sofware, if they are correct then problem may be internal.
You dont mention whether it prints OK though.

Paper jam. I am getting an error message to open door, clear carriage jam, and then press enter. I did that but proble persists. There is no paper in the machine, no jam.


It is most likely that there is still a piece of paper in the machine. Was the paper you removed from the machine torn? Are you certain you have all the pieces?
Most HP printers have an access panel on the back that you can open to retrieve paper jams. Many people don't know to open that panel and look for paper. Try that.

Every time I try to print the paper jams.


check the pickup roller, make sure there is nothing preventing the paper from loading stright.
if all of the paper path are clear, then you will have to get a maint. kit to replace the roller themselves.

HP Printer not pulling paper


Check for a jam in paper feeder, look down back with a torch, open up unit and search inside, have a pair of tweezers handy as jams can occasionally be very minute and hard to grab.
