mistakenly classes several paper jam
conditions together. The xerox phaser
8200 is a laser page printer and has no moving print head or carrier.
persistent paper jam
conditions where there is no obvious paper debris at the jam site may
indicate broken stuck or failed optical paper sensors or a paper late
condition caused by paper slippage in the
paper supply drawer especially the 500 page
add on.(the add on drawer has a moving paper feed arm but I have
never heard it called a carrier.)
Ink jet and ink pump printers do have a moving print head carrier which can collide with bad Paper jams thereby complicating the repair. Generally the carrier must be freed and moved to the parked position before the paper jam can be removed. Those who undertake this repair must take care not to damage the print head while freeing the carrier.
Paper jams are common to all printers but the repair technology needed to deal with difficult or persistent Paper jams will vary widely with technology of the machine to be repaired.

It has nothing to do with the paper. It is the rollers, gliding along the CD tray instead of 'pushing' the tray. The reason is that over time, the tray gets polised. Turn the tray over and very lightly sand crossways, not lenghtways with a sanding block grit 80-120 on the underside of the tray. This will roughen up the underside and the rollers are then able to grip it.
If you don't want to sand, you will need to pull the tray slightly towards you, the moment the CD is printed.
Either option will work.

There is a solution on the HP website, the carriage is the part that moves left to write to put the ink on the paper.
HP say move it to the opposite side from where it is gently. That didn't work for me, i got a bit more violent and moved it quickly from side to side getting a nice smack on each side and it came right, strangely enough.

SOURCE: error - carriage jam message
My Photosmart 2610 just started having this same problem today. As many of you have done, I also went to the hp support website and tried just about everything. Finally I discovered the answer to my problem on my own. Here's what I did (you might want to have a wet rag handy to wipe the ink off your fingers):
1) With the printer on, I pressed "okay" to clear the error message. You should immediately hear the sound of the carriage (the contraption that holds the cartridges) moving inside.
2) Open the print cartridge access door (the main access point for the cartridges) and confirm that the carriage is indeed moving.
If the carriage won't move at all, I'm not sure that this solution will help you. However, if the carriage moves from side to side after you press "okay", please read on.
3) This is unorthodox, so bear with me: when the carriage moves away from it's "resting place" (in my printer it's on the right hand side) and is near the center of the printer, unplug the power cord from the printer. The purpose of this is to free up the undercarriage (which was the part that actually was jammed on my printer).
4) Ensure that the carriage moves freely from left to right and right to left by pushing gently on its sides.
5) Move the carriage to left side of the printer so you have room to access the undercarriage.
6) It might be helpful to have a flashlight or some other light targeting the undercarriage for this next part. If you look directly underneath the undercarriage, you should see a foam/spongy product resting in the base of the printer. The purpose of the sponge is to absorb any ink that escapes from the cartridges. Herein lies the problem: over time, as the undercarriage adjusts to enable the carriage and its cartridges to do their work, the undercarriage gets caught on the inky sponge. Note that the undercarriage is fragile, but is moveable by gently pushing it toward the front or back of the printer.
7) Adjust the undercarriage so you can see the sponge and the "axel" (for lack of a better term) that turns to move the undercarriage forward and back. It may take some detective work, but you should be able to determine where the sponge is supposed to lie. Your goal here is to push the sponge down as far as it will go so that it won't obstruct the movements of the undercarriage.
8) On my printer, there was also a small amount of sponge wrapped around the "axel" that prevented it from moving smoothly. I unwrapped it and double-checked that nothing else was obstructing movement.
9) Final step: leave everything where you moved it, shut the lid, and plug it back in. A little prayer never hurts either. Good luck! AIM ID if you need more help: GnarlyVeaux

i cleaned the clear file strip behind the carriage by rubbing it between my fingers and my printer started working again. before that i had paper jam and carriage jam and it wouldn't do any printing or copying.
