Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
New users get to try the service completely Free afterwhich it costs $6 per call and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
Goodluck!

SOURCE: Carriage jam

Try this (it may not work) -
Perform a Semi-full Reset on the unit by following the steps below:
1. Make sure that the unit is on, and disconnect the power cord from the back of the unit.
2. On the unit keypad press the # and the 6 keys simultaneously and hold both keys down while plugging in the power cord.
3. The Semi-full Reset message will appear on the unit display.
Wait until the unit initialization process is complete. The unit will have recovered its original settings.

I've had this error before and had no obvious fault with the carriage (it moved freely and the encoder strip was in place) i managed to clear the error by stripping the printer down and cleaning around the service station area

Carriage Jam Error on HP Printer

There is nothing much to do if you get a Carriage Jam error. We can give a try to solve it ( Usually carriage jam error results in Hardware failure )

Follow the instructions below to resolve Carriage Jam issue.
  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Open the rear access door ( or duplexer )
  3. Check for any bits of paper stuck, if so, remove them.
  4. Open the front access door where you see the cartridges. Check for any paper pieces, if so, remove them.
  5. Move the carriage manually 5-6 times from left to right.The carriage should move freely. ( Do not apply force )
  6. If the Carriage does not move freely, try to remove the cartridges and close the rear and front access door.
  7. Power on the printer and it will prompt you for missing cartridges.
  8. Install the Cartridges.If it does not prompt you for cartridges missing, you will find Carriage Jam Error on the screen
  9. This indicates the printer is faulty and needs repair

In any condition if you are not able to fix the issue, Contact HP ( 1-800-474-6836 ) If the printer is In-Warranty please contact HP for replacement. HP may charge for repair for Out of Warranty printer

My printer quit printing. Carrag jam comes up on the screen when I try to print something out. There isn't anything jamming it. What can I do to fix it


Issue:

A 'Carriage Jam ' error message displays on the product control panel. The carriage, which holds the cartridges, stalls against the left side of the product. A paper jam might have occurred previously.

Detailed instructions fro resolving a carriage jam along with a video are available here:

Continue to get clear carriage jam after opening door and clearing or moving the carriage in hp 4215xi


Click here for instructions on resolving carriage jams on the 4215xi. If you successfully complete these instructions and still have carriage jams, your printer likely needs service.
