Be certain your paper jam is truly cleared.

Double check your cartridge installation is in fact correct.

The printer needs a reset.

This is to be sure all previous error messages aren't showing up when a problem is already been fixed.

If you are certain of the above,..clear all print jobs in the que.

Turn the printer off and unplug the printer.

Disconnect your usb hook-up ,should it not be wireless.

Allow the printer to sit a minimon of one minute unplugged.

Reconnect usb connection.

Plug the printer in and turn on.

Be sure there is no flashing light at the power indicator and that there is no alerts on your printer and or computer screens.

You should now be able to proceed with issues as long as the printer is re-recognised by your computer.

Any issues, consult your owners manual, or download from this site or Hp's web site.

Continuing issues can be resoved by Hp's support/and or customer service departments via their web site.

Wishing you success and best regards..

I just changed the (2) ink cartridges in my HP PCS 1610 All-in-One HP printer and now get an error message "CARRIAGE JAM - OPEN DOOR. CLEAR CARRIAGE JAM, AND THEN PRESS OK." I don't see any jam...


Have you tried moving the carriage to see if it really is jammed? Maybe you haven't put the levers down properly on your new cartridges....remove them, see if the carriage slides, then refit them and check the carriage again. You wont visually 'see' a carriage jam,; you have to try moving it. By the way, if it doesn't move, DONT force it to try and overcome the jam try and reason out why it doesn't move.
Hope this helps!

Paper keeps getting jammed


There is a rod in the carriage of your printer that is meant for holding the cartridges. It keeps on moving and spreading the ink on the paper throughout the process of printing. If this rod is jammed because of any reason, you face a carriage jam. As mentioned above, the main function of the carriage rod is to spread the ink, so obviously any clog or ink failure will lead to a poor print quality. If rollers of your printer are leaving marks on the document, then you need to clean them with a wet cleaning pad. Never use the chemical cleaners such as benzine, thinner, or alcohol to clean the rollers. In extreme cases you might need to replace an old cartridge of your Lexmark Printer with a newer one. Once you get a new cartridge for your printer, you need to be very careful while replacing it, otherwise it might cause a carriage jam.

Carriage gets stuck, Won't print. Power button starts flashing "red"


Check the following steps for fixing Hp Carriage Jam Error :

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 papaer out.

Says there is a jam with the ink carriage. I just put new ones in and its telling me there is a jam


If the number 10 cartridges are not properly fitted in the print head then this might give you a "jam" signal. My ink cartridges snap easily into position... if out of position an ink cartridge can block carriage movement...it happened to me.

My printer is giving me 2 error messages. One is


Hello,

For the cartridge jam, that means that either the ink is not properly installed or there is one tiny piece of something blocking the sensors. Same is true with the carriage jam.Please try to look for small bits of paper and remove it.

Is the ink newly installed?

Documents are printing slanted on page


It sounds like need some technical maintenance and at that point you have two options.. take it to a service center, or buy another printer (or if whithin warranty talk to HP about your problem, your attempts to fix it and possibly get it replaced). sounds like a component inside your printer may be either not working properly or there's something inside keeping the rolling componentes from keeping the page straight as it goes through your printer.
It does not sound like a driver problem...
btw.. did you mean carriage jam or cartridge jam??
if it was carriage:

Carrier jam on printer


There could be 4 possibilities.

1. Ink cartridges lids are open which is not allowing cartridges to move freely.
2. Ink cartridges carriage will not move from its original position(left) when front cover is opened
3. Encoder strip is Dirty.
4. Encoder strip is Out of position.

Solution:
1. Open the front cover and check if ink cartridges lids are properly snapped in.

2. Turn the printer off and pull out the power cable from power socket, open the front cover and manually center the ink cartridges carriage.
Clean the metallic rod inside the printer using WD40 or Kleenex from Left corner to right corner properly.

3. Cleaning the encoder strip:
a. printer should be off and disconnected from power.
b. open the front cover.
c. 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 printer and you can move the cartridges carriage to clean the strip completely.
d. Note: The encoder strip is a narrow band of clear plastic and can be difficult to see without direct lighting running parallel to metallic rod.
e. Close the printer and try again to print.

4. Repositioning the Encoder strip.
a. Remove the power cord from the printer.
b. Open the front cover.
c. Gently slide the ink cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer.
d. Gently move the top part of the printer belt to the right.
e. Using an index finger, gently push encoder strip down and then back up, to get it back into the slot located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier.
f. Gently press the strip first to the rear, and then forward, to ensure that it is seated correctly.
g. Manually move the ink cartridge carrier to the left, then to the right, to check the positioning of the encoder strip.
h. Once the encoder strip has been re-seated, close the scanner lid.
i. Re-connect the power cord to the printer and try again to print.
