I'm no expert, but try the easiest solution first. This happened to my hp 1215. The problem for me was one of the covers over the ink cartridges itself that snaps the cartridge into place had a little play in it and stuck up a bit higher than the other one. When the cradle moved all the way to the left, that cover rubbed on the outer covering of the printer. I simply taped it down and solved the problem!

I hope it's this easy for you!

Try turning off the printer, disconnect the USB cable, uninstall the printer drivers in "Add and Remove Programs", reinstall the drivers and reconnect the printer. Printer problems are more prolific than any other problem with any other computer accessory. Drivers become corrupt for no apparent reason other than Windows feels like doing it. If this doesn't cure the problem then I would suggest GENTLY trying to dislodge the cartridge cradle just a little bit (don't force it side to side). It shouldn't stick but who knows. If it does move OK again, listen for any odd sounds coming from the printer. My guess is still a software/driver problem.

Screen says cartridge cradle is stuck but it moves freely


Ok there
You may not see a paper jam.
This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

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.

HP photosmart 7760 turn on and says printer cartrage cradle is stuck please remove jam and press ok. There is no jamb and I have tried many times to use the printer.


try to move the carriage manually left and right..and then disconnect the power and usb cable from the back of the printer and press and hold down the
power button for 30 sec and then reconnect the cables and try again...open the backdoor and
try to move the rollers in upward direction.Make sure the unit is connected directly to the
walljack.
