Question about HP Photosmart C4150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

5 Answers

Printer shows Carriage Jam, but I can't find it.

I installed new ink cartridges in the printer and after some initial banging noises, an error message said "Carriage Jam, Open Door Clear Carriage Jam". The problem is that there is no jam. Another message repeatedly advises that I check the arrangement of the ink cartridges. I've changed them many times in the past and did it in the same manner this last time. The cartridges are in correctly and securely. I've unplugged and replugged the printer, have turned the power on and off, but nothing has changed the error message. I cannot find anything that would cause a carriage jam. Please help. I just bought $100 worth of new ink cartridges and don't want to have to buy a new (and possibly different brand) photo printer.

    Thank you. At current rates for repair service, I think I will buy a new printer rather than repairing the current one. What you said makes sense and I appreciate your input.

    I pushed the cartridge left and right several inches with no change. At this time, I've already purchased a new and different brand printer. Thank you for your input.

I pushed the carriage HARD to the left (figuring that I was going to have to get a new printer helped me not worry about breaking it!) and it finally slammed over to about the middle of the bar inside the machine. I then turned the printer off and on and it aligned itself and seems like it's going to work.

Think dudes i can solve my problem

I have an HP5610. The cartridges began making a banging noise upon instaling new ones. The suggestion of pushing the cartridges to the left 1/4" seemed to unjam them. The printer works fine now.
Thanks

Push cartri9age to left about a 1/4", with finger pressure. Un-jammed my printer.

Epson expression xp 600 error code 0xEA when setting up


I had the same problem today. I opened the printer below the scan bed, where you install the ink cartridges and there was a piece of packaging material that got left in that while I unpacked. I removed that and the 0XEA error was gone. I was sure the problem was nothing to do with the cartridge installation as it was the initial setup of the printer and cartridge installation was the next step based on the user guide. I was getting this error on initialization after setting the region, date and time.

Try to print but: get General Printer error 0x61000f6


Hi

This error comes due to carriage jam. Turn off the printer and unplug it from wall socket. Now, remove the cartridges and check for any dried up ink residue on cartridges on inside the carriage. Clean the cartridges contacts and carriage using a Q-tip dipped i alcohol. Let the carriage and cartridges dry before you plug in the printer.
Install the cartridges and check. If it still shows error then unplug the power cord coming to the printer without switching it off. Now, remove the rear door of the printer and check for any paper jams over there, remove if any. Wit for at least 15 seconds and plug in the power cord. Now check whether it is working.

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?

yes, that is a carriage jam and not paper, the grinding is from the clean station that gets blocked with dried ink and cant move. you need to open the printer and clean the ink off of the clean station so it can clean properly and not cause a carriage jam.

How do a clear a carriage jam on a hp6210 printer


My HP6210 printer had the same problem. The carriage would make a lot of noise going back and forth and I got the carriage jam error message. Using a flashlight, I found an incredible amount of ink (mainly black ink) underneath the mechaism which clears the ink off the print cartridges. I throughly cleaned the internal components and it works again.

Well, here is the proper way of fixing or troubleshooting that paper jam error in your printer

Open the printer access door and remove both of the ink cartridge, then remove also the printhead, after that close the printer access door, without those parts. Then it will show a message in the printer screen, "Printhead is missing or has come loose" or "Printhead Not Detected" Install the printhead, just the printhead without the ink cartridges. After that close the printer access door. Then it will show you a message"Ink cartridges is not installed,install ink cartridges". then open again the printer access door, then install the black ink cartridge without the color ink cartridge. then close the printer access door, then message must be " Color ink cartridge is not installed, install color ink cartridge" then install the color ink cartridge." the message must be,"New printhead is detected calibration require, load paper and press start"

Thats the way of overiding the paper jam error message of your kodak all in one printer
hope this will help you guys
