That would be your encoder strip. It does thread through the carriage, attaching on the left to a spring metal tab, and on the right hooking onto a rigid metal mast. You can probably get a fair idea of the connecting points by visiting http://www.fatrcat.com/7100ss.html
Scroll down through the instructions to find the right area, and I can be contacted if you need more help.

SOURCE: How do I get fix a "carriage jam"?

I was able to run run a piece of photo paper through a couple of times and printer now seems to be working again. The theory was that running a heavy piece of paper through might help clear little piece of paper that was not visible. The photo paper is less likely to tear if it gets jammed too.

SOURCE: carriage jam issues on hp printer

So sorry to hear that you are having issues with your C4385 printer. HP's All-In-One printers seem to be very touchy when it comes to carriage jams, and mine is no exception. They are usually caused by little bits of paper left over from a previous jam, so you just have to work out where to find them. HP produced a page with diagrams to help people find them. Please click here to access their solution page.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: HP 6310 Carriage Jam

The first solution worked a few times and the second also helped. I found that the right piece that is a black rubber part that slides forward and backwards was getting stuck and preventing the printer head from going to the right. The piece has two holes with rubber brush like things sticking up. If you move the printer heads out of the way you can slide the rubber piece back and forth and it should move smoothly. If it seems to stick or is harder to slide then you will need to clean it. I took apart a few top pieces of plastic to get to that rubber part and cleaned the sides and the place where it slides with rubbing alcohol and Q tips. There is a groove on the left side where there was the majority of buildup of ink to clean. I also cleaned the rubber part sides by placing my Q tip with a LITTLE rubbing alcohol on the corner and then sliding the rubber piece to clean the whole side that goes into that groove. Make sure to take a dry Q tip to the same surface. You won't be able to get all of it but the majority of it should come off. After cleaning it I haven't had a problem since. I imagine it will get dirty again and I will have to clean it again after a while.

Check the following steps for fixing Hp Carriage Jam Error :

Open the print carriage access door. Check for any packing material that may be blocking the internal components. Check for an orange shipping lock that may still be in place on the left side. Pull the shipping lock out, if present, and discard.

Remove and reinstall the cartridges to make sure they are properly installed. Lift the front center of the print carriage access door to open it. Lift the door up until it locks into an open position. Press down on a print cartridge and allow it to spring back up. Lift the cartridge out of the printer. Do the same for the other cartridge. Slide the black cartridge into the slot on the left and the color cartridge into the slot on the right. Press down on each one to lock it into place. Lower the print carriage access door.

Check the print cartridges to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the ink nozzles. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Remove any tape or labels. Replace the cartridges into the printer.

Push in on the tab on the left side of the clean-out door on the back of the printer to open the door. Lift the door out of the printer. Check for any paper jams. Jammed paper can block the printer cartridge carriage from moving. Pull any jammed paper out.

I HAVE A PAPER JAM. ALL THAT IS LEFT IS A SMALL PIECE OF PAPER. PLEASE TELLO ME WHAT I DO NOW.


It's almost definitely a bad exit sensor (known design flaw by Samsung). Go to YouTube and watch this video: 5fJHykzkfww

You can get the part on eBay for about $10 and it's a fairly simple 15 minute fix.

HP Pro 8500 printer has carriage jam. I have opened every door and there is no paper jam.


Sometimes the paper gets caught inside the printer all the way to the right (or left) of the print carriage. You will miss seeing it because the print carriage has moved the jamed paper to the right (or left) out of view. Carefully and manually move the print carriage to the opposite side and you might find small pieces of jammed paper there.

Carriage jam open door carriage jam and then press OK to continue


You would be absolutely amazed how small a piece of debris can cause that fault. Use a flashlight and look carefully for any piece of debris and remove it.

Get some "canned air" from any computer or office supply store and blow out the interior of the printer thoroughly.

Carriage jam means the carriage, where you put the inks, can't move right to left properly. Sometimes ink on the clear strip behind it is the cause. You can carefully clean with damp Q-tip, and check also that the cleaning assembly on the right where the printhead parks, is not stuck.

Carriage jam on HP Officejet J5780 All-in-One


We have several of these in our company and the most common "Carriage Jam" cause is a glob of black ink in the bay on the right side. Once glob is removed, and "Carriage Jam" message appears again, press OK, and it prints fine from then on. Today the black ink glob was flat on top. Watch out for leaky cartridges, as the design of the particular HP device provides a nice catch pan for the tri-color ink cartridge, but not for the black one, so a leaky cartridge, besides being expensive and wasteful, can goop up the bay causing the carriage jam error message to try to get you to take a closer look.
