Usually in the instruction book or under "help" when you open your Printer under Control panel /Printer Properties there is a section that deal in flashing lights on the printer.
This will help in finding out what area the real problem is in...sounds like a paper jam or feed problem.

SOURCE: HP Photosmart 7450 stuck cartridge

not a solution, my paper feeds past the point where printer5.gif would normally begin. Then flashing light changes from green to red and print operation stops. Printer cartridge1.gif appears to be stuck in far right area of cartridge track.

Replaced drivers as above and still have the same problem.
Mine started after I had replaced the color cartridge. Mailed the old one to HP already so can't put in old cartridge.

If I unplug printer from computer, I get same results. Does the driver software install in the printer?

  1. Press the Power button (c01575386.gif ) to turn the product on, if it is not already on.
  2. Open the cartridge door. The carriage might try to move into the access area at the right. Allow it to move to that position.
  3. Wait until the carriage is idle and silent.
  4. Without turning off the product, disconnect the power cord from the back of the product. WARNING: You will move parts by hand in the following steps. You must disconnect the power cord to eliminate the risk of an electrical shock and to reset the paper-feed mechanism.
  5. Looking in through either the cartridge door or the output tray, make sure the cartridges have not come loose in the carriage. Push each cartridge inward to securely lock them in place.
  6. Check for and remove any obstructions under or around the carriage that might prevent it from moving.
  7. Make sure the carriage can move freely across the width of the product by firmly pushing the carriage to the left, and then to the right.
  8. Close the cartridge door.
  9. Reconnect the power cord to the back of the product.
  10. Press the Power button (c01575386.gif ) to turn on the product.
  11. Allow the product to warm up, and then try the print job again.
  12. Check the cartridges for damage: NOTE: The product must be on or it will not release the cartridges.
  13. Wait until the carriage is idle and silent, and then lightly press down on a cartridge to release it. Pull the cartridge toward you out of its slot.
    • The tri-color cartridge is on the left.
    • The black cartridge is on the right.
  14. Check the cartridges for damage, and then replace any damaged cartridges. Check for obstructions under and around the carriage. CAUTION: Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or ink nozzles. Touching these parts can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections.
  15. Follow these instructions to install the cartridges correctly.
    1. If you are installing a new cartridge, remove the cartridge from the packaging, and then remove the pink-protective tape.
    2. Hold the cartridge by its sides, with the contacts facing into the carriage.
    3. Slide the cartridge at a slight upward angle into the empty slot, and then gently push it until it snaps into place.
      • To install a tri-color cartridge, insert it into the left slot.
      • To install a black cartridge, insert it into the right slot. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
        Thanks, Joe

SOURCE: Cartridges Jammed, Paper Light Keeps Blinking

There are a number of possible causes but none are realistically fixable as your printer is more than ten years old now and has far exceeded it's design life. If you're lucky then it's just a broken microswitch.

If you want to try and see if the fault is a simple one then you'll need to remove the casing and watch the machine as it tries to operate. What follows is based on the very closely related Deskjet 880c, but yours comes apart almost identically.

You'll need a torx driver with small sized torx bits (sorry, I don't recall the exact size) and a small flat-bladed screwdriver. You'll also need paper towels and an anti-static wristband. You may also need a continuity tester to check any suspect microswitches but it's often obvious if they're broken simply be the feel of the operating button when pressed.

Disconnect the machine from the power supply and open the lid. You'll see two torx screws which you need to remove. Turn the machine over and you'll see that at each endthere are plastic tongues which have clipped into the metal chassis. Use your flat-bladed screwdriver to carefully push these inwards and at the same time ease the end cases of the machine away from the main body of the machine. keep a careful eye out for any obstructions and be aware that the right hand end case (as viewed from the front) will have wired connections which you must be careful not to strain. If there are any loose/broken parts then put them to one side.

As the right cover comes off, be prepared for many years of inky goo. If it gets on your hands they'll be stained for a few days, so use the paper towelling. This goo is the residue left from every time the printer has been through a cleaning cycle and when it discharges ink whilst priming new cartridges before first use. If the goo is everywhere, then give up and bin the machine. It won't be worth the mess and effort to clean up all of the delicate working parts which probably won't work afterwards anyway.

If you had any loose parts then now is the time to see where they came from: detective skills are useful! If the broken part held a moving component then assess whether it can be glued or replaced by a bit of lateral thinking.

Now reconnect the power supply (it's a low voltage from a transformer, so is safe) and check the printer operation. Parts which may be causing the problem are normally things like microswitches, dislodged springs, broken spring locating tabs, dislodged/broken drivebands or failed motors.

Personally though, unless you like finding out how stuff works then just bin the printer. I've had dozens of free printers and multifunction devices from Yahoo FreeCycle over the last year and many work perfectly or have a really easy to fix fault (such as Epsons which need the service indicator resetting and maybe ink pads replaced). I take them, repair them and re-offer them on FreeCycle or sell them if i've any money tied up in repairing them. Older HP's are generally extremely reliable (my Deskjet 880c has had thirteen years of fairly heavy use and going strong) but when they fail it's normally for a really good and non fixable problem.

How do i fix a cartridge jam?


Hi andmary,
While using the HP Photosmart C4180, the printer may display error messages. These messages alert you, as the printer's user, to any problems affecting the printer's performance. The printer can display the message "Carriage Blocked" on the printer's display screen, stopping any current print jobs and preventing you from printing anything until you resolve the problem. The error message can be caused by an actual obstruction, such as a stuck piece of paper, keeping the cartridge carriage from moving freely inside the printer. Sometimes the error is a result of a software error.

Instructions:
1. Turn off the printer, wait 15 seconds, then turn it back on. Press the "Setup" button on the control panel, then use the arrows to highlight "Print Report" and press the "Ok" button to print a self-test page.
2. Remove all the loose paper from the printer's input tray. Turn off the printer and open the back door by depressing the tab on the left side.
3. Pull out any stuck paper, being sure to turn the rollers to check for small pieces of paper. Close the back door and open the printer's front door.
4. Remove any stuck paper from the printer. Move the cartridge carriage from the left to the right side of the machine, removing anything that stops the carriage's movement.
5. Push down on each cartridge, then pull each one out of its slot. Replace the cartridges in their slots, then push forward on them until they each click into place.
6. Plug the printer back in and turn it on, then unplug the printer's power cord from the back of the machine and the electrical outlet. After at least 15 seconds, plug the power cord back in and turn the printer back on. If the problem persists, take the printer to a repair shop.

Hope this helps.
Thank you for using Fixya!

Paper jam message no paper jam cartridge gets stuck HP 6310 all in one


Paper jams can be tricky to solve. The paper is usually stuck inside the printer mechanism so even if there is no visible paper jam, you will still get the paper jam error. Try this:

1. Turn off your printer
2. Open all trays and remove any paper stuck there
3. Locate the button to open the printer, open it and remove any paper stuck there also.
4. Repeate the above step for all buttons that you can find to access the inside of the printer
5. Close all doors and put back all trays
6. Turn on your printer
