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.

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

Dell 942 carrier jam


This morning I replaced the cartridges in the Dell 942 printer, they jammed to the left which made a loud grinding noise and the cartridge jam error came on.

I solved the problem by turning the printer on with the top up which moved the cartridges to the right a little so I could reach back, push one down a little manually which freed them to move over to the middle.

Carrier jam on dell 924 printer??


I was able to fix this issue on my all-in-one 944 printer. What happened was that one of the ink cartridge lids had popped open. The hard part was that the carrier was stuck on the far left side, and I wasn't able to pull it over for easer access. However, I was able to fit a finger in and push the cartridge back down. Then when I turned the printer back on the error went away.

Hope this helps

Dell 944 All-in-One Printer - printhead carrier jam


I just found that one of the little feeder rollers (??) on the roller bar has jumped out and is sitting (still attached by its spring) on top of the roller bar. I reckon that's curtains for the printer. Am I right or is it repairable?
