    I did have a paper jam. I removed envelope from back of printer but it shows there is still a jam. There is nothing, not even a small piece of paper. I have pressed ok, tried to cancel, shut down computer and unplugged printer, restarted but still shows a jam.

hello, you might want to pull carriage from the right to the left, check to see if there is some paper in the right hand area, clear it out, then try again.

Cannot clear CARRIAGE JAM on my c5180


There are a number of things that can cause a carriage jam. To prevent it from recurring, one should keep in mind a number of things. Always ensure that the paper tray is not overloaded as this might result in the paper being stuck inside. Also the paper being used should be as per the manufacturer's recommendations. Turn off the printer when removing bits of paper. If there is a broken gear, do not repair it yourself. Call an expert technician to mend it.

My printer is giving me 2 error messages. One is


Hello,

For the cartridge jam, that means that either the ink is not properly installed or there is one tiny piece of something blocking the sensors. Same is true with the carriage jam.Please try to look for small bits of paper and remove it.

Is the ink newly installed?

Carriage jam issues on hp printer


So sorry to hear that you are having issues with your C4385 printer. HP's All-In-One printers seem to be very touchy when it comes to carriage jams, and mine is no exception. They are usually caused by little bits of paper left over from a previous jam, so you just have to work out where to find them. HP produced a page with diagrams to help people find them. Please click here to access their solution page.

Hope this helps!

Carriage jam


I don't have the same model, but I do have three hp photosmart machines here, and I usually reach in and grab the carriage and give it a little pull and push, once it has moved it will then go to its place. A word of caution, turn off the printer before you try this. Then turn printer back on after closing lid. I think I learned this from one of the manuals or their web site.
