Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Error message= open door clear carriage jam and


I think the message is instructions, as in
(1) open door (2) clear carriage jam (3) press enter
So there is something internal to the printer that makes it think it has a carriage jam, piece of paper under a sensor, dirty or stuck sensor.
If you can't find it using a bright light, try canned air.

Clear Carriage Jam then press enter. When I do


I would try disconnecting the printer and unplug. Then remove the software and driver. Then re-install the latest drivers and software for your printer. Follow the installation instructions. If the problem comes back then the printer has a problem. Could be a dead motor that drives the paper roller if it does not go away. If the printer is under warranty you should be able to get it repaired. The warranty is usually only a year.

I keep getting an error message on my printer for a CARRIAGE JAM. THe message says to open door, clear carriage jam and press OK to continue. I've followed the HP steps and no luck. Can anyone help?


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

If you have verified that there is no obstruction, nothing preventing the carriage from moving, then most likely fault is dirt, ink smudge or bits of paper on the encoder strip. The encoder strip would be the narrow long plastic strip with barcode like markings. These has to be clear in between markings as they serve as guide for the carriage to tell the printer where the print head is. Cleaning could be done with a soft cotton cloth that leaves no lint.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Carriage Jam


Make sure you can move the print cartridge holder freely and that it isn't being blocked by anything inside the printer, also check if the cleaning station is in the right position, maybe it is locking the cartridges.
