Error message that paper jam in paper cradle

Try this:
  • open the lid of the printer (from where you can see the ink cartridges);
  • remove the ink cartridges;
  • use warm water and cotton swabs to clean both the ink cartridges and the print head (where the cartridges sit on) off of any ink residue;
  • place the ink cartridges back into the printer and test if this works by printing something.

If you're still having issues, there may be a mechanical problem; in which case you need to get it repaired by someone.

Good luck!

My printer keeps saying print cartridge cradle is stuck clear jam then press ok, but there is no paper jam

Because it's NOT a paper jam, but a cartridge cradle jam, I suppose it's an ink jet printer??? if so, check for debrie arround the cradle shaft that could prevent the printing cradle to move from left to wright... you could also lubricate the shaft by rubbing a little bit of grease on it with the tip of your finger (verry thin layer), as ink sometimes gets on it and tends to become sticky with time...

Error 5700 impresora MX700

"Printer died after 1 1/2 years, error code 5700." on May 1, 2009 by danmc7777 (2 reviews)

Pros: This is a pretty decent product as far as ink jets go.
Nice to be able to use the feeder to scan multi-page documents and even cover two sides by running two passes and then the software interleaves the pages to make a seamless pdf file.

Cons: Ink jet technology. It worked very nicely for a year and then a few jets plugged up and wouldn't clear out even with cleaning.
Today the unit is dead, reporting error code 5700 and refusing to do anything after a paper jam.
Cartridges with chips.

Summary: I was pretty happy with this printer until one day it decided to grab about 30 sheets of paper at one time from the top feeder. This created a pretty major jam, and it reported the error code 5700. This jam must have stripped something in the gearing since now all it will do is report this error even after power cycling. Web search reveals that this is a serious fault that requires it to be sent in for repair. Yea, right. This unit is designed to be never disassembled since everything snaps together and opening it up is a major puzzle.

This is only reader review which i found in the web. this may tell you what is the error is all about..

Printer will not jammed ......the paper jammed in the machine..and I pulled it out....

1. Inspect the paper trays to make sure they are not overloaded. To determine if this is the problem, do a test print with only one piece of paper loaded in the paper tray. (If this turns out to be the problem, keep the paper tray half-full in the future.)
2. Check that the type of paper being used falls within the printer manufacturer's recommendations. For example, paper designed for ink-jet printers doesn't necessarily work well in laser printers. High-quality, bonded paper will cause paper jams in some printers; look for bonded paper that is "laser and ink-jet compatible."
3. If someone has recently printed labels on this printer, check to see if a label has come unglued from a sheet and become stuck inside the printer.
4. Check the gears and rollers for stuck shreds of torn paper from previous jams. Turn off the printer before you attempt to remove the bits of paper.f you have a laser printermag-glass_10x10.gif, inspect the printer's paper rollers. They should be smooth but not shiny. Rollers that are cracked or glazed are a frequent cause of paper jams and should be replaced by a technician.
5. if you have a laser printer, try cleaning the printer's paper rollers with a lint-free cloth and isopropyl alcohol (available atelectronics shops or drugstore.Try changing the toner or ink cartridge.

Try looking for the jam from the rear of the printer. Also, using one of those compressed air cans, blow all the paper dust our of your printer, because the sensors usually are photo-electronic sensors, and paper dust wil register a paper jam, even when no paper is in the printer.

Chews up paper while printing then jams paper.

Top loader or bottom loader? Ink-jet, dot-matrix or Laser? All have different reasons. Most common are ink-jets. Most common are top loaders. Most common cause is cheap paper. Buy ink-jet paper. Most people buy cheap copy paper (20#). Buy a good 25# or heavier paper to keep that from happening (especially w/ top loaders). People always worry about that extra dollar or two for paper, but it take an average of 10ml of ink to print 300 pages. That's 1 cartridge ($10 to $20 dollars) for less than 1 package of paper ($3 to $5).

Paper Jam - HP G85 Ink Jet Printer

You open the door from the back of the printer (turn the knobs) and the paper can be removed from the back. After removing paper jam, replace the door. It is a long door as wide and the printer, but about 2 1/2" wide.
