Question about Dell V305w All-In-One R840635AU InkJet Printer

1 Answer

"Clear Carrier Jam"

My Dell V305 says "clear carrier jam" when it boots up. Also, when it boots up, it sounds very rough - it's almost like the ink cartridges are out of alignment. I've tried aligning the cartridges, but that hasn't worked.

Clean the carriage rail. This is the round chrome piece that the carriage assy that holds the cartidges 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

My printer will not print, keeps displaying ( clear carrier jam! ). How can I fix it?? Do I need to buy a new printer or is this an easy fix. I 've unplugged the printer and checked ink cartridges...


Turn the printer off and unplug it from the wall. Press and hold the power button for sixty seconds. Open the top of the printer to make the ink cartridge carrier accessible. Grab the ink cartridge carrier with your hand and slowly move it back and forth until it moves freely. Then plug the printer back in and turn it on. That should solve your issue.

I Got a dell printer and i don't know what to do and in the printer it says Clear Carrier Jam


Turn the printer on.
Lift the lid to expose the print-head mechanism.
The "carrier" is that part of the mechanism that moves the print-head across its range.
Something is physically blocking, or "jamming", that carrier.

I changed the ink cartridges and now it just flashes and says clear the carrier jam and press start??? what is a carrier jam and i have cleared everything that can be cleared and it still want work, so...


The mechanism that carries the cartridges is call the carriage (carrier). Remove all the cartridges and reinstall them, now move the whole mechanism with the cartridges installed from it's original position to somewhere and verify that there's no obstructions blocking the movement of the carriage. You can simply open the front access door and move the cartridges to somewhere from where it is now. That'll help you clear the error if there's no physical damage with the machine.

If you need further help, let me know.


Good luck.


Thanks for using FixYa.

V305 print has a message "clear carrier jam" ?can't figure this out. help


the carrier is the part the holds and moves the ink cartridges, I would open the printer like you are going to change the ink and remove and replace the cartridges ... if the carrier does not move when you open the printer then give it a gentile nudge and see if it will move
