SOURCE: carrier jam on printer

There could be 4 possibilities.

1. Ink cartridges lids are open which is not allowing cartridges to move freely.
2. Ink cartridges carriage will not move from its original position(left) when front cover is opened
3. Encoder strip is Dirty.
4. Encoder strip is Out of position.

Solution:
1. Open the front cover and check if ink cartridges lids are properly snapped in.

2. Turn the printer off and pull out the power cable from power socket, open the front cover and manually center the ink cartridges carriage.
Clean the metallic rod inside the printer using WD40 or Kleenex from Left corner to right corner properly.

3. Cleaning the encoder strip:
a. printer should be off and disconnected from power.
b. open the front cover.
c. Using a dry, lint free cloth, pinch the encoder strip on the right-hand side of the cartridge carriage and pull your fingers across it toward the right-hand side of the printer and you can move the cartridges carriage to clean the strip completely.
d. Note: The encoder strip is a narrow band of clear plastic and can be difficult to see without direct lighting running parallel to metallic rod.
e. Close the printer and try again to print.

4. Repositioning the Encoder strip.
a. Remove the power cord from the printer.
b. Open the front cover.
c. Gently slide the ink cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer.
d. Gently move the top part of the printer belt to the right.
e. Using an index finger, gently push encoder strip down and then back up, to get it back into the slot located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier.
f. Gently press the strip first to the rear, and then forward, to ensure that it is seated correctly.
g. Manually move the ink cartridge carrier to the left, then to the right, to check the positioning of the encoder strip.
h. Once the encoder strip has been re-seated, close the scanner lid.
i. Re-connect the power cord to the printer and try again to print.

LEXMARK IMPACT S 305 A 5 PAPER JAMMING, HOW DO I REMOVE IT, THEIR IS NO WAY IN VIA THE BACK.


Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:

  1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.
  2. Grab a flashlight and look inside the feeder for any debris or foreign objects.
  3. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions/debris in the cartridge carrier's path or the paper path. Open the scanner unit or the printer cover.
  4. If you can see the paper jam, the cartridge area should give you enough space for your hand to reach on the jammed paper in the printer.
  5. Carefully remove the paper jam and make sure not to tear or leave torn pieces of paper in the printer. It can cause future paper jams.
  6. When the jam is cleared, close the printer cover.
  7. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).
  8. When the printer turns on, try to print again.

Error message on printer: It says to clear the carrier jam; what is a carrier jam? How do I clear it?


Make sure the paper is out where it was jammed. Unplug the printer from the wall for thirty seconds and plug it back in.

Not working see bottom


Check your entire feed to make sure there is NO paper jams. Sometimes even the smallest little piece of paper can get jammed up and can e hard to see.
You can also check your manual for diagnostic mode and alignment print page.

Printer had paper jam


1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

How to clear carrier jam in Dell Photo All in One 944


simply open up your printer and see if there is any residual paper that get stuck, in some case if you can find some small miniature piece of sensor it might cause a erratic sensing that there is a presence of paper while there isnt, try to clear this or clean.
paper jamming indicator means there is some paper in the paper path, unless otherwise ou clear this up you cannnot print.
after you may need to power down or restart your printer once again

Dell 944 All-in-One Printer - printhead carrier jam


I just found that one of the little feeder rollers (??) on the roller bar has jumped out and is sitting (still attached by its spring) on top of the roller bar. I reckon that's curtains for the printer. Am I right or is it repairable?
