Re: The cartridge carriage has stalled

If you can remove the dust from the paper lifting area with the help of petrol or ip (all the gararis) and reinstall that portion, change the encoder (which goes from the carriage) and clear the round encolder with the help of wet cotton. Greecing the cartridge park area and then check it. If you find any problem then contact me at

Why doesn't my HP OfficeJet 7500A carriage move? It is jammed

Try to turn it off, open cover and move carriage a little bit by hand; don't push too hard. For some time it'll get back to life.

HP Photosmart C3180 carriage permanently stuck on right. How to fix this?


If the carriage totally stuck on the right side of the printer, Unplug the printer from Power outlet.

Open the front access door. You will see the cartridges. Remove the cartridges. Check for any paper stuck in the Carriage Rod. Try to manually move the carriage 5-6 times left to right and it should move without any trouble. Put the cartridges back into the Cartridge slot and power on the printer

If the Carriage does not move manually, there could be chances the printer needs mechanical repair as its broken.

HP PSC 2355 try to print a document and receive an error "Print cartridge carriage is stalled " "Open door, clear carriage jam, and then press OK to continue." I tried this and there is...

This can be said as a bit complicated problem. This problem is exhibited by the printer when the cartridge carriage mechanism is getting stuck at some end. I should advice that you make sure that the SS ( Service Station ) of the printer is not jammed / clogged. If yes, try cleaning it. It is also caused when the motor is malfunctions and tries to move the carriage beyond the path that it should go.
It is best recommended that you consult an authorized HP Service person for the solution of this issue.
Thank you.

Whenever i try to print it does 1/2 page then the cartridge keeps getting stalled on one side. Error message on screen says print cartridge stalled, error message on printer says clear carraige jam. Cannot...

If there's a carriage jam. While the printer is turned on, Open the access door of you printer.
If the carriage is stuck at the left side, try moving it manually by hand to the right most part of the window. If it's stuck on the right, try moving it by hand to the left.
If you've already done that. While the printer is turned on, unplug the power cord from the back. Close the access door. And then plug it back in.
Make sure you restart the computer first just to avoid documents getting stuck in the print queue. Try printing again. Usually it does the trick.

I replaced my color cartridge on my HP Photosmart C3100 series printer and now it is making a grinding sound, but prints perfectly fine - what is the problem?

You would want to try and reinstall the print cartridges. It is possible that something is just stuck that is why you are hearing the grinding sound.
Let me know.

I keep getting ERROR 1200 - Print Carrier Stall - there is nothing blocking the cartridges and I have even replaced them. I am using Dell cartridges. What else could be causing this problem? It stalls...

Ok you can try this.
Error code: 1200
This error code is commonly associated with the Dell 922 printer. Usually you might see the cartridge moving front and back and slamming itself against the printer. You need to tighten the strings located on the back of the printer and then it should work fine

Clean the carriage rail. This is the round chrome piece that the carriage assy that holds the cartridges rides on. Use a paper towel that is slightly moist.
Be sure to not force anything. Unplug the printer after you get the carts in the middle. Move them to one side and clean and then move them to the other and repeat.

Lift up the scanner to reveal the cartridge compartment; under the chrome rod on which the cartridges run there are two small gaps about 8cm apart. In the right one should sit the paper sensor which is a small black rod that hooks downwards; the problem I had was my sensor had bent up and out of the gap so all I had to do was bend it gently back into position using a small screwdriver.

Hope you get it to go.
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.

    Cartridge stalled

    You need to clean the rollers in the back panel of the printer.

    Unplug the printer while it is powered on and remove the back panel. Get a damp cloth (not too wet) and wipe off the rubber rollers in the printer as well as on the panel. Replace the panel and open the front where you load the cartridges in. Move them back and forth from side to side and make sure nothing is blocking them from moving. Plug printer back in. It should come on by itself and initialize.

    Print a page from your computer. It should now only feed a single sheet at a time without causing a carriage or paper jam.
