Open the top cover of your printer and take a close look at the cartridge carriage while moving.observe the movement up to where it stop moving something is preventing it from moving. probably a jammed paper,a broken gear on the cartridge park position at the right side.there is a lever that touches by the carriage and it moves down to give way to the cartridge to park when the mechanical timing of this park station fails a carriage error will appear.check for any foreign object at this section and remove if you found any.you may also lubricate the carriage moving path...use a lubricating oil.just put a little.

good luck!

Carriage jam error


A paper jam

If you've had a paper jam, normally after you clear it, a small amount of paper sometimes gets left behind and gets shunted onto the sidewall of the printer by the carriage, which stops the carriage reaching its full travel and throwing up an error, rendering the printer unable to print or carry out any other function. Simply remove the paper and switch printer off and on and it will reset.
If you have an error of any other kind, many remedies and fixes for these can be found on my website http://www.the-inkstore.co.uk/frame/pages/epson.htm

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

The "paper jam" message stays


Yes you may think you have cleared the paper path but there is still a small piece of paper stuck around the jam sensor arm..
look into the machine and when the carriage moves to the centre for you to change the ink tanks, pull out the power lead. observe where the carriage has stopped and now push the carriage all the way to the left. Where the carriage was is a black panel with a lot of little rollers in it. There is a small slot in the panel and thats probably where the critter is hiding.

good luck with a long L shaped opened up paper clip... get my drift?

Hello,
This can be said as a bit complicated problem. This problem is exhibited by the printer when the cartridge carriage mechanism is getting stuck at some end. I should advice that you make sure that the SS ( Service Station ) of the printer is not jammed / clogged. If yes, try cleaning it. It is also caused when the motor is malfunctions and tries to move the carriage beyond the path that it should go.
It is best recommended that you consult an authorized HP Service person for the solution of this issue.
Thank you.

I just changed the (2) ink cartridges in my HP PCS 1610 All-in-One HP printer and now get an error message "CARRIAGE JAM - OPEN DOOR. CLEAR CARRIAGE JAM, AND THEN PRESS OK." I don't see any jam...


Have you tried moving the carriage to see if it really is jammed? Maybe you haven't put the levers down properly on your new cartridges....remove them, see if the carriage slides, then refit them and check the carriage again. You wont visually 'see' a carriage jam,; you have to try moving it. By the way, if it doesn't move, DONT force it to try and overcome the jam try and reason out why it doesn't move.
Hope this helps!

It seems you mistook Carriage Jam as Paper Jam, but they are different issues. Carriage jam means the carriage that carries the cartridges is jammed which needs to be moved or be cleared manually after opening the door.

Please follow the instructions mentioned here (Click Here) [source HP Support].

Good Luck.

Let me know if you need further help.

Thanks for using FixYa.
