I had a "carriage jam" error message.

My son gently wiped down the metalic strip that tells the carriage where it is. It worked for a couple of days and then the "carriage jam" message came back.

I took my 7210 apart, took the drive belt off/put it back on (not easy), and found nothing wrong with it. So, I put it back together. I noticed that if I pushed the print carriage all the way to the left, closed the lid, and pressed "OK", the print carriage would move a couple of inches to the right. It did this repeatedly. I figured the motor was working, but there was too much friction on the carriage. I put some 3-in-one oil on my finger and put a thin coat on the front, top, and back of the rod that the print carriage rides on. I then ran the carriage back and forth about 20 times. I closed the lid and it works fine.

I had the same problem with my DVD player. The head was hanging up on the two chrome plated rods that supported the head. I put some 3-in-one oil on the rods, ran the head back and forth, and it has worked ever since.

You might also check the belt to make sure that there is nothing that might cause it to hang-up.

Step 1: Move the carriage to the center manually if necessary If the carriage is stuck on the right or left side of the product, follow these steps to move the carriage to the center of the product.
Step 2: Check for a broken carriage chute
The carriage chute is the side wall of the carriage that holds a curved metal piece (the x-bias spring). A broken carriage chute might cause the carriage jam condition.
Step 3: Turn the product off and on again
Step 4: Clear any paper jam.
Step 5: Make sure that the control panel faceplate is correctly installed
Step 6: Plug the All-in-One directly into a wall outlet
Step 7: Perform a partial reset
Step 8: Print a self-test page

Step 9: Service the product. Now this model is outdated as per HP website.

I keep getting a carriage jam error message. There doesn't appear to be a jam, but I am unable to clear the message and print anything. Also the display screen reads original loaded. No idea what this...


Check the location of the ink carriage. If a piece of paper gets wadded up under this or something else is obstucting it you will see this error.

The original loaded message comes up when a sheet of paper is in the scanner tray.

The printing carriage stalled and I get error message : Clear carriage jam ..


This normally happens if there is something jammingthe head assembly from moving along the carriage rail. Turn off the power to the printer and see if you can move the head assembly by hand. Also check that there are no paper jams anywhere in the paper path and that the belt that moves the head assembly has not broken.

Carriage jam means the carriage, where you put the inks, can't move right to left properly. Sometimes ink on the clear strip behind it is the cause. You can carefully clean with damp Q-tip, and check also that the cleaning assembly on the right where the printhead parks, is not stuck.

Carriage jam


It's telling you that something is in the path of the paper or a paper is stuck in the machine. There is a panel on the back that removes quite easily. Check there. Also, check where you put in the ink, there may be a paper in there. Also look for bits of paper. Sometimes in a jam, the paper gets ripped and a piece of it is still there.

Carriage jam


Try this (it may not work) -
Perform a Semi-full Reset on the unit by following the steps below:
1. Make sure that the unit is on, and disconnect the power cord from the back of the unit.
2. On the unit keypad press the # and the 6 keys simultaneously and hold both keys down while plugging in the power cord.
3. The Semi-full Reset message will appear on the unit display.
Wait until the unit initialization process is complete. The unit will have recovered its original settings.

I've had this error before and had no obvious fault with the carriage (it moved freely and the encoder strip was in place) i managed to clear the error by stripping the printer down and cleaning around the service station area
