Turn on your printer, as soon as the carriage moves out of it's resting position quickly unplugged the printer, the carriage should stop in a postion that you could move it freely by hand. Just position it by hand where you can remove the cartridge and put it back correctly. When your done just gently push the carriage back to it's resting position then put the plug in and turn it on.

How to clean carriage jam?


Hi,
tools are recommended when cleaning a toner cartridge: A mask which will filter out any toxic particles in the toner, a can of compressed air to blow out any toner remaining in the cartridge, and cotton swabs/alcohol to wipe the toner cartridge. After this try printing most cases carriage jam will not happen unless there is physical damage.

Carriage jam


Usually when the printer displays a carriage jam error the carriage assembly is jamming along the carrige path.
There may be something in the carriage path or the carriage shaft may need lubricating.
Check the area where the carriage is has stoped. There might be an obstruction visible.
