My HP6210 printer had the same problem. The carriage would make a lot of noise going back and forth and I got the carriage jam error message. Using a flashlight, I found an incredible amount of ink (mainly black ink) underneath the mechaism which clears the ink off the print cartridges. I throughly cleaned the internal components and it works again.

I just lift the cover up and hit OK. May have to do this a couple of times but it seems to work. May also want to insure that the plastic feed track housing is securely in place. This housing snaps in and out and sometimes get dis-lodged.

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!

The Carriage Jam error message displays on the control panel display. The print carriage, which holds the ink cartridges, stalls against the left side of the printer. A paper jam might have occurred previously.

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.

Error message= open door clear carriage jam and


I think the message is instructions, as in
(1) open door (2) clear carriage jam (3) press enter
So there is something internal to the printer that makes it think it has a carriage jam, piece of paper under a sensor, dirty or stuck sensor.
If you can't find it using a bright light, try canned air.

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.

Error message reads "carriage jam"


The print carriage access door is the large top part of the printer that swings up. If you look in the user guide it is arrowed on page 14.

My printer is a hp6210 and the error I am getting is carriage jam, open door clear carriage and press ok


The carriage is what holds the ink cartridges. If you open that and make sure that there is nothing that is blocking the carriage from moving. If there is remove it. If the machine is powered off you should be able to slide the carriage by hand back and forth along the metal shaft that it rides on. If it feels like it is sticking you can wipe the shaft off with a clean lint free cloth. DO NOT add and oil to the shaft. Power the machine back on and it should work. If it still errors out you will probably have to bring it to a repair place.
Hope this helps

Carriage Jam error always - how do I fix it?


Try resetting the printer (pressing the cancel button and connecting the power supply, check in the HP website if this is correct for your printer model) , after the reset the printer will clear any errors and will recalibrate the mechanism including the paper feed mechanism and the carriage.
Also check if the carriage is moving freely by disconnecting the power and moving it by hand.
