Turn printer on ERROR comes on screen. Carriage jam Open Door clear carriage jam and then press OK to continue. I do this nothing found in carriage close Error comes up the same?? What to do?


Joe,
Pull all of the paper out of the machine. Look for a wadded up small piece of paper. After you look for it. Examine the door slide tray where paper is stored. Look at take-up rollers... make sure slide drawers close easily...examine door where print cartridge is....Look at (on side) feed tray...Paper feed tray... If you fail get a flashlight and take another look it does not have to be a very large piece of paper...good luck

Paper jammed


Hi Good day!!!
Here are some steps to remove paper jam

1. Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge to fade away before putting your hands on the metal tools inside the chassis.

2. Pin down the exact location of the jam. The three hot spots for a jam are before a sheet completely leaves the paper tray, between the feed tray and the print carriage or between the print carriage and the output tray.

3. Take off the front paper tray. If the sheet jammed around here, you should be able to see most of the paper.

4. Pull on the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Don't tug too quickly. You might rip the paper, leaving a chunk of it deeper in the machine.

5. Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed tray area and the print carriage of the all-in-one printer. Carefully remove the jammed paper from the machine.

6. Use the carriage access door to get at a jam further inside. You may need to move the print carriage out of your way to get at the jam.

7. Return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.

Keeps screwing up paper and e-90 comes up on


An error E-90 means that something is stopping the ink carriage from moving its full extent. Open the printer top and check that the ink carriage lid is firmly locked down, check along the path of the carriage for any foreign/loose objects. If the carriage moves when you switch it on, pull out the power cable when it is across to the left and check for loose gears or foreign objects in the gears on R/H side. As you are also getting screwed up paper I believe that there is something lodged in the paper path. To check this make sure the print carriage is parked fully right and out of the way. You will need an A4 (approx) sized piece of stiff cardboard such as the backing from an A4 note pad. Insert this into the paper feed locating it between the feed rollers on the R/H side. Then push quite firmly to overcome the spring pressure, when you feel it push through about a half inch stop and open the printer to see what is being pushed through. Push the card fully through and retrieve the foreign object (I have found everything from paperclips, curtain hooks and even a golf tee!). Push the card through fully and out of the printer. Always remove paper jams etc, in the direction of the paper feed whenever possible as pulling anything backwards can dislodge or break the sensor flags.
Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution, thanks.

PAPER JAM:


OK, this is going to take a bit of nerve but it has worked every time (dozens) I have seen this problem. Switch off the printer and unplug, make sure the ink carriage is parked. Get a stiff piece of A4 card such as the backing from an A4 notepad. Place the card in the paper feed and push through quite firmly for the first half inch then open the scanner unit and watch the rollers inside the printer as you push it further. It should push out anything blocking the paper path. Push the card fully through in the direction of paper feed, never try to pull paper jams or anything else out backwards if it can at all be helped.

Paper wont feed then says paper jam


Got rid of my problem!

In an act of despair I started to poke around the inside of the printer with a wooden match. Especially I found a small black lever mentioned on a Dell web site (general paper jam help page) that could be pressed a little. It is placed just a little bit right of center behind the carriage and just above the roll that feeds the paper beneath the printer heads. I'm not sure if this was what finally did it, but now the paper jam problem has gone away.

Another thing I noticed is that my carriage is now moving to center when I open the top. When the paper jam error was present it always moved to the far left (so I could remove any jammed paper, I suspect)
