Question about Printers & Copiers
Maybe you have a piece of paper that is stuck, or you need to clean it up and put a little bit of oil on the rod where the carriage is driven....

I get continous carriage jams if I use short paper - Legal cut in half - 8.5 x 7 inch. Printer does not have a nice paper picker.

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.

I was able to run run a piece of photo paper through a couple of times and printer now seems to be working again. The theory was that running a heavy piece of paper through might help clear little piece of paper that was not visible. The photo paper is less likely to tear if it gets jammed too.
