HP C3180 all in one printer won't realign

I have an hp printer and the paper jammed. After removing the jam, the cartriges stay to the left of the printer and won't allow anyone to print anymore. The check paper/check print cartridge light flashes and when you push it, it clicks and pops and won't go away from the left side of the printer. What do I do?

Re: HP C3180 all in one printer won't realign


We've encountered several problem like this. Hope this gives an idea; I understand the cartridge will not moved back to park tray or flash ink tray back and forth because the return pick-up guide were not properly placed into each original position. It will block the ink tray moving back and forth. You can roll back the roller into the original place by removing the back cover if it has, then turn the pick-up roller slowly allowing the roller to turn and backed to its original position. Removed also remains of jammed paper pieces.

Best regards,

HP 7310 Cartrige Belt Repair

The right end is connected with an idle pulley on a spring. If you grab the left end and pull it to the left, the spring will strech. This will help to attach the belt to the carriage motor on the left.
In some printers the spring streching is fixed by screw that have to be loosen first.
If you can't reach the motor's weel on the left, you have to take off some parts first.
