Error message on printer: It says to clear the carrier jam; what is a carrier jam? How do I clear it?


Make sure the paper is out where it was jammed. Unplug the printer from the wall for thirty seconds and plug it back in.

The ink carrier has a clear carrier jam message...


If the printer carrier is slamming into the side of the printer, please try the following:
  1. Disconnect the power supply from the back of the printer.
  2. Open the front cover of the printer where the cartridges are located.
  3. Look for two black bands that span from left to right (they should have one serrated side and one smooth side). Just above the black bands there is a transparent strip; this strip is called the Encoder strip.
  4. Flick this strip lightly with your finger to make sure that it is running smoothly from left to right. You may need to do this two or three times. CAUTION: Do not pull the strip!
  5. Close the front cover of the printer and reconnect the power supply.
  6. If the problem persists, then its a hardware issue and you should contact Lexmark for replacement of the printer.

Paper jam message


Look for little pieces of paper that get stuck in the rollers, also verify that the gears and roller didn't get misaligned when you cleared the jam.
Good Luck,

Carrier jam


From what you are saying you are getting 'clear carrier jam' because of a misalignment. The jam error message is a generic message that applies to a multitude of things. The carrier while is in right, might not be sitting right. A piece of plastic that holds the carrier might be broken or the printhead might be messed up. Anything that causes it to not sit the way it wants will cause that error message.

Carrier Jam


The top of my ink cartridge had fallen off and was in the printer... I hadn't seen any paper or anything and was completely stumped, when I picked it up and heard something in there... It was hard to get back on, but now it works!
