If the printer thinks it has a Carriage jam, you might want to try removing the ink cartridges and then putting them back. It's possible they got bumped out of place during the paper jam. Hope you can figure it out!

Open the print carriage access door. Check for any packing material that may be blocking the internal components. Check for an orange shipping lock that may still be in place on the left side. Pull the shipping lock out, if present, and discard.

Remove and reinstall the cartridges to make sure they are properly installed. Lift the front center of the print carriage access door to open it. Lift the door up until it locks into an open position. Press down on a print cartridge and allow it to spring back up. Lift the cartridge out of the printer. Do the same for the other cartridge. Slide the black cartridge into the slot on the left and the color cartridge into the slot on the right. Press down on each one to lock it into place. Lower the print carriage access door.

Check the print cartridges to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the ink nozzles. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Remove any tape or labels. Replace the cartridges into the printer.

Push in on the tab on the left side of the clean-out door on the back of the printer to open the door. Lift the door out of the printer. Check for any paper jams. Jammed paper can block the printer cartridge carriage from moving. Pull any jammed paper out.

Carriage jam on HP Officejet J5780 All-in-One


We have several of these in our company and the most common "Carriage Jam" cause is a glob of black ink in the bay on the right side. Once glob is removed, and "Carriage Jam" message appears again, press OK, and it prints fine from then on. Today the black ink glob was flat on top. Watch out for leaky cartridges, as the design of the particular HP device provides a nice catch pan for the tri-color ink cartridge, but not for the black one, so a leaky cartridge, besides being expensive and wasteful, can goop up the bay causing the carriage jam error message to try to get you to take a closer look.

Carriage Jam


If either a paper jam or blocked carriage error message appears on
the control panel display, there might be some packing material inside the HP allin-
one. Lift open the print-carriage access door. The orange shipping lock might
still be in place on the left side of the HP all-in-one. Pull out the orange shipping
lock and throw it away

Not printing


If either a paper jam or blocked carriage error message appears
in the front panel display there might be some packing material
inside the HP Officejet. Lift open the print-carriage access door to
expose the print cartridges and remove any packing material or
other items that do not belong there.

Cartridge jammed and sccaning error


When you open the clamshell does the ink carriage slide back and forth with jamming?

If not then try getting some silicone grease and apply a very very thin line of it on the rail.

If it does then try making a copy, in the middle of the process, before the error, open it up and see if the ink carriage has even moved from "Home" position.

You might have a belt issue and this could be one of many things, stripped plastic gear, streatched belt...

Printer is not working


Try pushing the print head carriage with a bit of gentle force. It is getting stuck, and hence the error. You may have to open side and top covers to reach this. Note: this is not the cartridges, but another device that moves back and forth on the slider carriage.
