SOURCE: Carriage Jam error always - how do I fix it?

Try resetting the printer (pressing the cancel button and connecting the power supply, check in the HP website if this is correct for your printer model) , after the reset the printer will clear any errors and will recalibrate the mechanism including the paper feed mechanism and the carriage.
Also check if the carriage is moving freely by disconnecting the power and moving it by hand.

My hp printer 5525 shows carriage jam how can i fix this?


If you lift the lid to get access to the cartridges, there should be a diagram showing you how to unjam the carriage. I have a 564, & it has that feature.

Continuous c5280 "carriage jam" error message


If you already followed these instructions, the last thing to do is to service the printer. I don't know of any self-fix options for this printer. It's worth validating that you've already completed these steps as described.

I'm getting an error msg and can't print. It says please fix cartridge jam and hit enter. I can't find any jam. What do I do?


If there isn't a cartridge jam then it's probably a carriage jam:
However, I'm not too familiar with clearing a carriage jam. I just know that if your cartridges are not blocked then the carriage is likely at fault. You will need to Google this on how to fix a carriage jam.

Printer keeps saying ''carriage jam error''...


Friends,

The encoder strip may also be dirty, this causes the printer to believe that the carriage moves less than it actually does and tries to compensate by moving the carriage even further - slamming into the left side of the printer as a result.

Carefully leaning the encoder strip with a lint-free cloth wetted with luke warm water (it should not drip!) can fix this problem.

If the carriage stays in the middle of the printer and doesn't move, the carriage drive belt may be broken. Usually this is not replaced so the printer unfortunately has to be scrapped. But contact your local HP support for further advice.

Issues with my HP Photosmart PSC 7280


I had the same problem. You can access the carriage from the back of the printer. I actually had a jam , however just as you exposing the carriage from the front I did not see a thing.

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.
