    I am constantlyl getting a carriage jam error message. This happens over and over. I open the lid and free the carriage, but will get the same message when the printer goes to print or copy. The only thing that I have found that fixes the problem is turning the printer off and then on again.

    I'm ready to kick this thing to the curb. I get the same message. Sometimes powering it off and unplugging works but the carriage error message comes up again.

    I get the Carriage jam message repeatedly. There appears to be no jam, I have turned it off and on, unplugged, changed cartridges, etc.- everything suggested in the hp solution site. Shortly before this happened, I had a low ink message when but I have since put in a new cartridge. This is making me crazy!

    I am getting the same message, "Carriage Jam - Open door, clear carriage jam and then press OK" on my 7310 printer. no matter what I try it cannot be fixed. HP support was a waste of time since it is 2 years old and out of warranty. I will never buy another HP printer sicne i apid $400.00 for this one and received no help from the company

I just changed the (2) ink cartridges in my HP PCS 1610 All-in-One HP printer and now get an error message "CARRIAGE JAM - OPEN DOOR. CLEAR CARRIAGE JAM, AND THEN PRESS OK." I don't see any jam...

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!

Clear carriage jam

The carriage assembly is what the ink cartridges moves on. The silver bar that runs through the cartridge holder must be oiled. Put two or three drops of thin oil oun iether sides of the cartridge holder. This should clear the "carriage error"

Good Luck

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.
