The easiest way around this problem is to turn the printer on and while you hear the carriage whizzing back and forth, pull out the power lead. The carriage is now unlocked and you should be able to push it into the space where you change the cartridges. Change them and power up again. hopefully it will recognise them and off you go....

WHAT IS THE CARRIAGE CARTRIDGE


There are two different types of carriage units that you may be referring to depending upon the model printer you have. Older types of photo printers had two distinct carriages.

1. Carriage referees to equipment that travel left to right in your printer.
2. One is for the print heads that receive ink from your print cartridges and dispenses it to the paper that you are using.
3. The print head carriage that travels back and forth to accept replacement ink cartridges. Most of the time it is tucked to one side or the other and only travels when the printer is opened in a specific way to expose it for ink replacements.

In newer systems the print heads are built into the Ink cartridge, each color has it's own print head.


So in answer to your question the carriage cartridge is more than likely the container that you put your ink cartridge into. Unless you have an older printer and then it would or could be the carriage for either the print head or the ink. They some times need to be replaced. I had to replace that cartridge in an old HP2500 for as long as we had the printer. (4 years). Great machine high maintenance.

Ink cartridges stuck on left side of carriage. Won't move. Tried all of the suggestions and still says carriage jam.


it will be stuck in roller cleaner mode, that is mechanical. the only real way is to push it thether over to the left. with the power off the printer, then close the compartments and turn on the printer it can take 2 o3 goes as it will try to move it right. you have to get it off the clip that is holding it there. the cartridge is held in place to stop it moving while the roller is cleared.

My Canon Ip2772 not printing. because i have error 5200 occurred. please send this solution. i m very glad to your solution


Please try this solution
Switch on the printer, while its moving the cartridge carriage unit, plug out the power cable.

Open the printer's cover.
Now the printer is off, and the cartridge carriage unit is located somewhere in the middle or any side.
Pull it to the middle of the printer.
Take out both cartridge from the carriage unit, and leave the "Lid" open wide.
Turn on the printer with the Lid still open. The carriage unit will now move to the left and to the right, and then stop again at the middle.
You can put back the cartridges according to the color code: C for Color, B for Black.
Close the cover, and try to print a page.

Printer is running out of ink. To put new cartridge in I lift the lid and normally cartridge carrier moves over to left allowing replacement of cartridge. Today no movement---why? Green light is flashing...


Hi there.

It's probably jammed by dirt. Unplug the printer, move the carriage out of the way and clean thoroughly the metallic rails the carriage runs to using a cue tip.You might have to move the carriage multiple times to clean it totally. Finally spread a little fine grease over the metallic rail and again move the carriage from side to side. Now plug it in and try using it.

Let me know what happens.

  3. Hold the cartridge with the label on top. Figure 5: Label on top c01668109.gif illustration of holding the cartridge with label on top
  4. With the copper-colored contacts facing into the carriage, insert the cartridge into the carriage at upward angle. Push the cartridge up, and then into the carriage until it snaps into place. Figure 6: Install cartridge c01745263.gif 1 - Insert cartridge 2 - Push cartridge up 3 - Push cartridge in illustration of install the cartridge
    NOTE: If the cartridge moves loosely in the carriage, it has not clicked into place. Repeat this step.

The carriage that holds the cartridges is stuck and when I open the front panel it wont move to the center as usual. I cannot print anything obviously


I have the same printer. Underneath the home position is a rubber "wiper" that cleans the underside of the cartridges. Ink buildups get dried out and can cause the carriage to stick. You may be able to " help" the carriage out of home position by GENTLY using the belt that runs from left to right to move the carriage to the left. U nderneath where the carriage previous sat you will see 2 rubber objects. Carefully wipe off any dried up ink. This is a messy job ! Good luck.

Errror e flashing. i cant see any paper jam or small object that affect the sensor.please help me


Check the following steps for fixing Hp Carriage Jam Error :

Open the print carriage access door. Check for any packing material that may be blocking the internal components. Check for an orange shipping lock that may still be in place on the left side. Pull the shipping lock out, if present, and discard.

Remove and reinstall the cartridges to make sure they are properly installed. Lift the front center of the print carriage access door to open it. Lift the door up until it locks into an open position. Press down on a print cartridge and allow it to spring back up. Lift the cartridge out of the printer. Do the same for the other cartridge. Slide the black cartridge into the slot on the left and the color cartridge into the slot on the right. Press down on each one to lock it into place. Lower the print carriage access door.

Check the print cartridges to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the ink nozzles. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Remove any tape or labels. Replace the cartridges into the printer.

Push in on the tab on the left side of the clean-out door on the back of the printer to open the door. Lift the door out of the printer. Check for any paper jams. Jammed paper can block the printer cartridge carriage from moving. Pull any jammed paper out.

Cartridge Error


I had the cartridge error message aswell. I took an alcohol swab and cleaned the points on both cartridges, let the cartridges sit for 1 minute to dry, and replace cartridges, restart printer, problem solved. Apparently I haven't used this printer in a month or so, and left it in my car and the ink dryed and caused an error.
