Check the LCD on your printer control panel or the status monitor on your computer for an error message. If there is an error message, follow the instructions to clear it.

If there is no error message, or if the problem continues:

  1. Open the access door.
  2. Disconnect the power adapter from the back of the printer.
  3. CAUTION: Do not use force on the printhead carriage to move it. Gently move the printhead carriage from side to side to see that it moves freely and there are no obstructions.
  4. Remove any obstructions that may prevent the printhead carriage and ink cartridges from moving to the center position.
  5. Close the access door.
  6. Connect the power adapter to the printer.
  7. Remove the ink cartridges from the printhead.
  8. Verify that the labels on the ink cartridges are intact, and that the cartridges are not damaged.

You do not say what model of printer you have.
When you open the access door, the print heads normally move into the centre. Does yours?
If not, that is the problem
The only suggestion I can make then is to get a cotton bud, and a thin oil [like machine oil or cycle oil]
Just moisten the bud [not dripping wet] and slide it along the printer rails. Problem is you cannot reach the rails where the print head is stuck! Do as much as you can and leave for an hour or two.

We have a ESP 7250 the print head carriage shows jammed but I can't get the ink cases to move. So I can check it


To resolve this error: Open the printer access door. Disconnect the power adapter from the printer. Gently hold both sides of the carriage, located immediately behind the printhead, and make sure the carriage moves freely. Remove the printhead and ink cartridges. Reinstall the printhead and ink cartridges, making sure each clicks into place. Connect the power adapter to the printer. Turn the printer on. Close the printer access door Hope this helps resolve your problem

Contact Kodak. I think it's the batch of printers that were made around this time. I just contacted them (mine is the same age and I'm getting the same error), and they are sending me a new printer.

Carriage jam means the carriage, where you put the inks, can't move right to left properly. Sometimes ink on the clear strip behind it is the cause. You can carefully clean with damp Q-tip, and check also that the cleaning assembly on the right where the printhead parks, is not stuck.

Well, here is the proper way of fixing or troubleshooting that paper jam error in your printer

Open the printer access door and remove both of the ink cartridge, then remove also the printhead, after that close the printer access door, without those parts. Then it will show a message in the printer screen, "Printhead is missing or has come loose" or "Printhead Not Detected" Install the printhead, just the printhead without the ink cartridges. After that close the printer access door. Then it will show you a message"Ink cartridges is not installed,install ink cartridges". then open again the printer access door, then install the black ink cartridge without the color ink cartridge. then close the printer access door, then message must be " Color ink cartridge is not installed, install color ink cartridge" then install the color ink cartridge." the message must be,"New printhead is detected calibration require, load paper and press start"

Thats the way of overiding the paper jam error message of your kodak all in one printer
hope this will help you guys
