Re: hp psc 1400 inkjet fix, paper jam
Please try these steps : 1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover. 2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.) 3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. 4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring. 5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.
If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6. If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service. 6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot. 7. Turn the printer off. 8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers. 9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

It's not saying carTridge jam, it's saying CARRIAGE jam. Something is stuck under the heads. unplug the power from the unit, and try to manually move the heads off to the left side, checking for paper under the head as you move it over. Check the head docking area on the right as well. Plug the unit back in and everything should be fine once everything is cleaned out.
it may have damaged the feed mechanism, this usually happens when theres a paper jam and we just pull it out. try powercycling the printer (unpug power cord from the printer and from the wall outlet too) leave it for 2mins, plug it back in to the printer first then to the wall outlet. if that dont work, ive posted the link for that printer here, check out the manuals and troubleshooting steps too, they're all for free. you can also contact 800-HP invent or 800-474-6836.
Turn the printer on.
Lift the lid that covers the print-head mechanism.
Wait 15 seconds.
The print-head will slide to an accessible position.
Press down on the ink-cartridge, to "unlock" it from its holder.
Gently slide it out.
Gently slide in the replacement ink-cartridge.
Press up-and-in on the ink-cartridge, to "lock" it into its holder.
Close the lid.
Print a test-page.
Check the following steps for fixing Hp Carriage Jam Error :
Open the print carriage access door. Check for any packing material that may be blocking the internal components. Check for an orange shipping lock that may still be in place on the left side. Pull the shipping lock out, if present, and discard.
Remove and reinstall the cartridges to make sure they are properly installed. Lift the front center of the print carriage access door to open it. Lift the door up until it locks into an open position. Press down on a print cartridge and allow it to spring back up. Lift the cartridge out of the printer. Do the same for the other cartridge. Slide the black cartridge into the slot on the left and the color cartridge into the slot on the right. Press down on each one to lock it into place. Lower the print carriage access door.
Check the print cartridges to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the ink nozzles. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Remove any tape or labels. Replace the cartridges into the printer.
Push in on the tab on the left side of the clean-out door on the back of the printer to open the door. Lift the door out of the printer. Check for any paper jams. Jammed paper can block the printer cartridge carriage from moving. Pull any jammed paper out.
Open the printer as though you were going to remove the cartridges.
Pull the paper that is in the tray out of the tray. Ensure you do not have too much paper for your particular tray to handle.
Look inside the printer to ensure there is no obvious paper jam. Close the printer. Give it a second or two to think....
Put the paper back into the paper tray. May just need a smaller pile of paper. If there is too much paper in your tray it will not go through the rollers properly.
If lights are still blinking after that however read any messages follow instructions if poss. Sometimes you just need to hit the enter button at this point to clear. Cartridges may align any point (hopefully).
If none of this works. Look for a "Toolbox" or something in your printer/scanner software on your computer that would enable you to send the align printer cartridges command from the software. That may align them as well.
I would be interested to know if this works. Good luck!
