We had the same problem and solved it by:
1. Removing the paper tray
2. Reduce the number of papers in the tray
3. Reset the tab to the right position (by moving it in and out).
4. Print it and make sure it works.

When we tried to add more paper in, the problem recurs. It seems like the problem is caused by a heavy load of papers in the tray.

Sometimes this is simply an unseated ink cartridge, or a dirty cartridge guide. Check for both of these. Use a lent free cloth to wipe the cartridge guide - its generally a thin transparent plastic that runs along the cartridge track.

There's a small locking mechanism that holds the carriage in it's home position. This needs to be slightly sprayed with WD-40 or a similar lubrication (small amount). Problem solved.

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.

How do i clear a cartridge jam on my hp all in one printer


Hi,
Is the paper feeding crooked and catching on the carriage? If so, remove the rear access door and clean the feed rollers with a damp cloth.
some other resion is The print carriage is the part that holds the print cartridges. Carriage blocked or jammed messages may occur for these reasons:
A paper jam was cleared from the front instead of the back on models that have a rear access door.
The print cartridges were installed incorrectly.
There is some obstruction in the path of the print carriage.
Open the print cartridge access door of the all-in-one so that the print carriage can be accessed.

Thanks,

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.
