Carriage jam


Is it tasty? never had that type of jam!

If the ink carrier jambs then wipe the rails with a damp cloth to remove built up ink. Make sure power is off when you do this. Return power to the unit and ensure all cartridges are seated correctly. As you turn on the power the cartridge carrier unlocks and begins to move. quickly turn the power off at wall switch, and manually move the carriage to the left so you can clean the rails where the carriage rests. Then gently return the carriage to its resting spot and turn the power back on. This should now work correctly. Keep the rails clean and it shouldn't happen again. If this did not fix it it will need to be sent back to a repair shop

I have a carriage jam


Turn the power on. Goto the procedure to replace ink cartridge, to get the carrier in the middle. Turn off power by unplugging the machine, if you hit thee power button the carrier will go back to the right. Take your hand and move the carrier to the right then to the left. You are feeling for binds in the print shaft or any obstruction. If the print shaft is binding clean and oil it. If the cartridge is hitting something locate and repair. There is a thin strip behind the carrier that has black strips all along from left to right. This strip is called an emitter strip. That strip allows the circuit board to know where the carrier is at. The strip gets dirty and can cause the carrier to get lost to the circuits. Clean it. There are more step that you can take but they get more technical. The above mentioned can be done with out taking the cover off. You may resolve the problem.

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.

Dell 942 carrier jam


This morning I replaced the cartridges in the Dell 942 printer, they jammed to the left which made a loud grinding noise and the cartridge jam error came on.

I solved the problem by turning the printer on with the top up which moved the cartridges to the right a little so I could reach back, push one down a little manually which freed them to move over to the middle.

Carrier jam on dell 924 printer??


I was able to fix this issue on my all-in-one 944 printer. What happened was that one of the ink cartridge lids had popped open. The hard part was that the carrier was stuck on the far left side, and I wasn't able to pull it over for easer access. However, I was able to fit a finger in and push the cartridge back down. Then when I turned the printer back on the error went away.

Hope this helps
