The printer may be faulty. I suggest you return it to the supplier to have it fixed or replaced under warranty. If you try to fix it yourself you may void your warranty.

HP Officejet Pro K5400 printer catridge stalled

If you press and hold resume, will the carriage move over to the left? Hold it until it stops moving.
If that doesn't work, try resetting the printer, by following these instructions. This article may also apply.
Unfortunately, HP does not have any instructions on the support site for resolving a carriage jam for your model, and I am hesitant to instruct you according to another printer, without experience working on that particular machine. If you are still unable to correct the situation after following steps listed above, please contact HP tech support directly, here.
If you want to research the options available online, you home support page is here.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

The carriage is stalled message on my hp officejet H470 printer

Check the printer again to see if a very small jam is present. If totally clear, press the Resume button. If same result, power the printer Off / On.

I have a hp officejet pro k5300 and it says that the cartridge is stalled and it will not print.

hardware malfunction call up hp at 1800 474 6836 and we will troubleshoot for you trust me it will help cauz there are so many things that we can do that this space im writing in is to connect the printer directly to the wall jack.
unplug the power cable of the printer and wait for 30 secs before repluggin the printer.move the carriage(that holds the printheads,spraying part of your printer) with your hand and check if it moves id it does n't then its definitly a hardware problem with your printer but you will need to call in to hp for a total problem resolution.

Stalled printer cartridges

Sounds like an issue with the print carriage. When it's out of alignment and tries to print, it can make awful noises. has a web page that describes a number of troubleshooting steps when you have print carriage issues:

Carriage Jam Errors

There's also a related web page having to do with the noise coming from the printer:

Noisy Print Carriage

Hope this helps. Good luck.
