Question about HP Photosmart C5180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
It is giving carriage jam not a paper jam the carriage is the part which carries cartridges on it. It seems your carriage is jam and can't move left and right so open the door and try to move your carriage with the help of rubber roller which moves your printer. Also clean the steel road on which the carriage moves just check at the corner of cartridge carriage if any paper bit is stuck or excessive paper dust has jammed it. If this does not solves your problem kindly comment back.

Mine kept doing the same thing, and I discovered that some of my refilled cartridges had been over filled and found ink on the table underneath the printer. There is a little black box about 2'' by 2 1/2'' underneath the 3052a printer that is stopped up to the point to where it isn't allowing the cartridges to move freely.
Unplug the printer, place over a sink at a 45 degree angle and spray the box with bleach water( yes I said bleach water) until it runs clear. Take a can of compressed air and blow the box as dry as possible, then re-plug the printer and run about 3 sheets of paper through it to ensure it is dry, and YOUR PROBLEM IS FIXED !

I had the same problem. I only had to apply some lubricant to the stabilizer bar the print head runs on. I sprayed WD40 on a cotton ball and rubbed it on. Watch out though, I cut myself. I guess you could wear thick gloves or something.
