When I turn my printer on it says self-test, then it starts trying to move the ink carriage and starts clicking horribly. then says clear carriage jam and restart, there's nothing in the way of it, so what could be wrong?

    When I turn my printer on it says self-test, then it says "remove and checke color/black cartridge. I updated print drivers, it finally printed two test pages and in the middle of printing the second page, it just stopped printing. I cannot print anything at all now.



    I uninstalled printer, and reinstalled printer as well. Can you help me?

If its clicking something is jamming the carriage or the timing could be off.

It should be looked at by a technician to get it adjusted properly.

I have a hp printer officejet J5780 All imn one.


I have found this model has a bad buildup of black ink in the right carriage bay chamber. With the printer on, open the carriage access lid and pull the power cord before the cartridge carriage can move all the way to the right side. Then gently push back the cartridge holder on the right if it's in your view, so you can see if there is a collection of black ink. The tri-color cartridge has a preventive bracket that doesn't seem to build as much as the black one. Anyway, once you've cleared any dripped ink cones or globs, plug the printer back in, turn it on, and if you get the Carriage Jam error one more time, press OK, and it should work well if that was the block on the carriage movement. I hope this helps you to get printing again.

Carriage jam


Step 1: Move the carriage to the center manually if necessary If the carriage is stuck on the right or left side of the product, follow these steps to move the carriage to the center of the product.
Step 2: Check for a broken carriage chute
The carriage chute is the side wall of the carriage that holds a curved metal piece (the x-bias spring). A broken carriage chute might cause the carriage jam condition.
Step 3: Turn the product off and on again
Step 4: Clear any paper jam.
Step 5: Make sure that the control panel faceplate is correctly installed
Step 6: Plug the All-in-One directly into a wall outlet
Step 7: Perform a partial reset
Step 8: Print a self-test page

Step 9: Service the product. Now this model is outdated as per HP website.

Remove both the ink cartridges from the All-In-One.
Unplug the power cord from the All-In-One as well as the power outlet.
Now move the carriage (carriage is the one which holds the cartridge) Too and Fro till you feel the carriage is moving smoothly.
Then insert the cartridges close the access door.
Plug the power cord directly to a wall outlet without surg protector.
Before connecting the power cord to the All-In-One press and hold the # and no 6 button and then insert the power cord, do not release the keys until you see a message a reset (if the screen goes blank then release the keys and turn the power on)
Now try printing a test page or make a copy

Good Luck

  3. Remove the new print cartridge from the packaging and gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab. CAUTION: Do not touch the copper contacts or ink nozzles. Install the cartridge immediately upon removing the tape to prevent ink from drying in the nozzles. Figure 3: Removing the plastic tape c00034768.jpg
  4. Push the new print cartridge into the appropriate slot at a slight angle, until it clicks into place. CAUTION: Do not attempt to push the cartridge straight into the slot. It must slide in at a slight angle. Figure 4: Inserting the print cartridge c00034769.jpg
