Carrier Jam with Dell All-In-One 942 Printer

I get error message: Clear carrier jam. Preceding this, the carrier slams
violently back and forth. I clearned out any debris. The plastic strip on the
carrier is attached correctly. I cleaned it. Is there a sensor within the
carrier itself that may be the problem. Please help.

    The response I received is in regard to a paper jam, not a carrier jam message. Additional suggestions from your Experts will be welcomed. Thank you.

    Having a response that "you will have to get
    this unit serviced fully one, that can only
    solve the problem" does not sound like expertise but only a logicaly default.
    Therefore, I cannot find this as acceptable.
    Thank you.

    For clarification, this is a DELL All-In-One 942 Printer. Thank you.

    still awaiting a clarification on which printer you have. The one in your title, and the one that's listed, are from different manufacturers.

    Great,..as a Certified Dell dude, then I can be more helpful, if you need any more help. The Carrier Jam, is in fact, a function of three interlocking mechanisms. I have a repair manual, that I can upload to the site, or work with you directly to resolve this, if it's still a current issue.

Hi,

Try all these steps one by one to fix ur problem:

1)lift up the scanner to reveal the cartridge compartment; under the chrome rod on which the cartridges run there are two small gaps about 8cm apart. In the right one should sit the paper sensor which is a small black rod that hooks downwards; the problem I had was my sensor had bent up and out of the gap so all I had to do was bend it gently back into position using a small screwdriver and now everything works fine!

2)clean the chrome rod with a moist napkin.
3)under the chrome that the carts are running on there are two small tips just push them in.


Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate me as fxya..

    If you have shaken your printer and found nothing inside I have the
    solution for you. I took the printer apart and I noticed that there is
    a plastic lever that detects when there is paper in the printer. This
    lever can be bent in such a way that it does not return to its "no
    paper" position and so you get a paper jam condition.




    I hope ur problem gets solved soon..
    Goodluck once again

The ink carrier has a clear carrier jam message...


If the printer carrier is slamming into the side of the printer, please try the following:
  1. Disconnect the power supply from the back of the printer.
  2. Open the front cover of the printer where the cartridges are located.
  3. Look for two black bands that span from left to right (they should have one serrated side and one smooth side). Just above the black bands there is a transparent strip; this strip is called the Encoder strip.
  4. Flick this strip lightly with your finger to make sure that it is running smoothly from left to right. You may need to do this two or three times. CAUTION: Do not pull the strip!
  5. Close the front cover of the printer and reconnect the power supply.
  6. If the problem persists, then its a hardware issue and you should contact Lexmark for replacement of the printer.

Carrier jam


From what you are saying you are getting 'clear carrier jam' because of a misalignment. The jam error message is a generic message that applies to a multitude of things. The carrier while is in right, might not be sitting right. A piece of plastic that holds the carrier might be broken or the printhead might be messed up. Anything that causes it to not sit the way it wants will cause that error message.

Dell 942 carrier jam


This morning I replaced the cartridges in the Dell 942 printer, they jammed to the left which made a loud grinding noise and the cartridge jam error came on.

I solved the problem by turning the printer on with the top up which moved the cartridges to the right a little so I could reach back, push one down a little manually which freed them to move over to the middle.

Carrier Jam


This happens, when printer is old one or it has either dried ink on carrier stall bar or some obstructions. Move the carrier stall manually 3-4 times from left to right and then take a damp cloth and clean the metal bar on which carrier stall moves. If you have kleenex and WD-40 nothing like that. Lubricate the bar, with that or some other lubrication agent. Do it once in a month, if printer is too old and/or u use a refilled cartridge. Dell is great!

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
