Question about Dell 924 All-in-One InkJet Printer
Whenever i print the "Clear the carrier jam" appears on the screen and makes a clunking noise; don't know how th fix it
I was able to fix this issue on my all-in-one 944 printer. What happened was that one of the ink cartridge lids had popped open. The hard part was that the carrier was stuck on the far left side, and I wasn't able to pull it over for easer access. However, I was able to fit a finger in and push the cartridge back down. Then when I turned the printer back on the error went away.
Hope this helps

I had the same problem with my Dell 924 printer.
But, the problem had nothing to do with the ink cartriges. I managed to slide the ink cartriges away from the jam, and saw that the problem was under the cartriges. There was a small black disk with silver teeth connected to an unravelled spring sticking up. I couldn't fix it, so I had no choice other than to cut off the spring-wire connecting it to the carrier. I had to make sure there was absolutely no wire sticking up at all... It's printing smoothly now, but I literally just fixed it, and I don't know how long it's going to last now. I don't know if I reccommend this option, but it's either this, or get a new printer. D: Do not follow this option unless you've tried the other solutions first!!

Jmhomulos, your solution certainly put me on the right track, however it was the cartridge on the far left that was the problem on my 944. I used a firm plastic kitchen spatula to hold cartridge top down enabeling both cartridges to engage properly.
I would never have fixed it if not for your help, I did not even know what a carrier was and as far as Dell's solution, well, stupid leading stupider comes to mind.
Thanks from Ireland,

I got the "carrier jam" message with a terrible rasping sound after changing an ink catridge on a Dell 942 printer. Seems I had pressed down too hard on the lid of the ink case. Lifting the ink carrier apparatus slightly with a finger did the trick
