Question about Dell 924 All-in-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

Carrier jam When I tried to print today, the display on my printer showed, " carrier jam, fix and then press start." I followed the instructions on the dell website which said to remove the power from the printer for 15 secs and then replace it, and that did not work. I was told it was cheaper to buy a new printer than to fix the problem. I can't afford one right now and I NEED my printer to print college assignments. Could anyone help, PLEASE!!!!!!!

I opened my printer while it was on and turned it off. As the carrier moved over and came into view, I found the problem. it had popped open, so I simply had to close it. Then, my printer worked again.

SOURCE: Carrier jam on dell 924 printer??

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,

To clean the encoder strip, perform the following steps:

  1. Power down the printer and unplug the power.

  2. Lift the cover on the printer.

  3. Using a dry, lint free cloth, pinch the encoder strip on the right-hand side of the cartridge carriage and pull your fingers across it toward the right-hand side of the printer99d8177.jpg

  1. Plug in the printer and power it on.

  2. Open the cover to allow the cartridge carriage to center itself.

  3. Using a dry, lint free cloth, pinch the encoder strip on the left-hand side of the cartridge carriage and pull your fingers across it towards the left-hand side of the printer. 43e0b19.jpg

Install old cartriage, if you still have it, let the machine tell you that it is empty, then go through the install process with one of the new ones.

My printer will not print, keeps displaying ( clear carrier jam! ). How can I fix it?? Do I need to buy a new printer or is this an easy fix. I 've unplugged the printer and checked ink cartridges...


Turn the printer off and unplug it from the wall. Press and hold the power button for sixty seconds. Open the top of the printer to make the ink cartridge carrier accessible. Grab the ink cartridge carrier with your hand and slowly move it back and forth until it moves freely. Then plug the printer back in and turn it on. That should solve your issue.

I Got a dell printer and i don't know what to do and in the printer it says Clear Carrier Jam


Turn the printer on.
Lift the lid to expose the print-head mechanism.
The "carrier" is that part of the mechanism that moves the print-head across its range.
Something is physically blocking, or "jamming", that carrier.

Carrier jam on dell 924 printer??


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 just found that one of the little feeder rollers (??) on the roller bar has jumped out and is sitting (still attached by its spring) on top of the roller bar. I reckon that's curtains for the printer. Am I right or is it repairable?
