Alarm message says "cartridge jammed". Does that


What you see moving is the print carriage. The carriage moves the cartridge, adjacent to the printhead, back and forth.
Although the carriage is moving, the ink cartridge can not dispense ink because an obstruction is
blocking the path of the ink.
Remove the ink cartridges, inspect the cartridges as well as the cartridge holders for any foreign debris and reinstall.
If the alarm message continues, I suggest changing the ink cartridges.

Error e then 7 flashes in window


I dont know why Cannon persist wuth there stupid messages by morse code,
E 7 means that a sensor has detected an incorrect ink cartridge
Options to fix
1.Check the ink cartridges are correctly installed
2. If you have recently replaced an ink cartridge with one from a supplier other than Cannon feplace the cartridge with a Cannon branded prosduct
3. If everything looks ok then try powering down the printer, unplug wait 2 minutes for all residual power to drain, then power up to see if the printer has resolved the problem, this just resets the sensor which reports the error but it often works as the sensors are the most likely part to give intermitten faults

My cannon printer is asking for me to replace carrtage. What does that mean


In order to print a printer has to have both black and color ink cartridges installed. This means that the one or more of the ink cartridges have run out of ink.
What is the model number of the Canon printer that you are using? That would help. Also if you have the manual it will tell you how to change the cartridges.
Hope this helps. Bud
