SOURCE: carriage is jamed. How can I release it without

Hello there

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Why doesn't my HP OfficeJet 7500A carriage move? It is jammed


Try to turn it off, open cover and move carriage a little bit by hand; don't push too hard. For some time it'll get back to life.

The error relates to a carriage movement error detected by the printer. This means the printer has detected too much power is required ti move the print head. Reason : All these Service Requests (Service Requests 00010004 , 00010005, 00010006, 00010007, 0001000A, 0001000F, 0001001D) are related to a Carriage movement error that is not automatically due to a Hardware fault. The reasons can be : - The carriage is lock not completely released. - The carriage lock has been partially pushed in after a paper jam or maintenance (for example). Reminder : The carriage lock must be released after unpacking the printer (see setup instructions) as follow : Points to check : In case such an error appears: - Power off the printer. - Ensure the Carriage lock is released (pulled to the left side) - Pushing down the cutter blade, slide the carriage to the left ? At the same time, please check if there is any foreign materials / dust / paper jam in the carriage path. If so, remove them. - Also, make sure that the carriage encoder (T-Fence) isn?t dirty and is correctly set and centered. Let me know how you get on with this info.

I can not manually move the printer carriage on my HP Photosmart B210e printer


Might be service station jammed.Service station work is to clean the print heads,stores spitting ink init as we as capping the print heads to protect from the nozzle drying..After switching off the machine service station capping the print heads and arrest the carriage assm for protecting the print heads, in this condition carraige assm wont come out until its released by service station. Its required expert to release the service station, if you force to pull it will damages the print heads.. You justify what you can do for this issue...If you are capable do it...But care fully

Hi there, I have a Brother KH950i knitting machine and the carriage has jammed. The carriage release button is also jammed. Do you know if there is another way to release the carriage from the tracks? ...


There is no other way: try to loosen needle by needle. Perhaps you may damage one.

When you have releases the carriage oil the release button. ITry if the button goes smoothly.

HP 6110 Printer jams after 1 sheet


Hi,

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com

Please try the bellow mentioned troubleshooting steps to help elliminate the paper jam and noise issue for your printer:

Things that cause a carriage jam error:

Dirty encoder strip.

Damaged encoder strip.

Encoder strip spring mount out of position so strip is slack.

Encoder strip not threaded through the emitter/detector that reads the lines on the strip. (just fixed a 5550 with this problem)

Emitter/detector that reads the lines on the strip is bad, this is part of the carriage PCA, (board).

Carriage stuck on side because service station is not releasing it.

Carriage stuck due to being tilted at wrong angle, if it's stuck a few inches from the right it needs to move farther to the right to be released, stuck a few inches from the left end move it farther to the left. (instructions probably on HP web site, they are there for the DeskJet 5550)

Carriage binding on rail due to ink build-up or lack of lubrication, (be careful what you use to lube).

Bad carriage motor.

Bad carriage drive belt.

Some machines have a timing disc on the service station motor and may indicate a carriage jam if the service station motor does not turn.

The cause could also be a loose cable connection on a small circuitboard inside the printer (The one that controlled the paper jam sensors) I fixed it by saudering the leads to the board until I had a good connection again.

Thank You and best of luck,.

Epson R320 carriage jammed


The ink cartridge is probably not inserted correctly.  Unplug the printer and manually move the carriage to a location where you can take the ink cartridge out.
 
Remove it and reinsert it, making sure that it is fully located, before applying the power.
 
Make sure that there is nothing blocking the carriage movement, such as some remnant of paper.

HP PSC 2210 keeps complaining about paper jam. There is no paper jam!


For carriage jam try these steps

Remove both the ink cartridges from the All-In-One. also all the papars in the tray
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

Olivetti Lettera 32 Typewriter Carriage Stuck Jammed Locked Up rigidly all the way to left.


There might be a little tab below the carriage wheel on the left of the machine. You should be able to move it up or down, and release the mechanism.
