Carriage return stuck on left side when powering on


The first thing to try is to lubricate the silver rail that the carriage rides on. A few drops of a light oil ( sewing machine oil ) may take care of the problem. Turn machine off, apply oil and move carriage by hand back and forth. Turn back on and see if this took care of it.

Empty carriage stuck in my HP 7500A printer


Hello,Lester Makang
Your carriage got stuck in service station,is there any noise coming from the right side of printer then there will be broken gear.
Power on your printer,after you got carriage jam error open cartridge access door and wait 5 second when you see that gears trying to move,use your hand to pull your carriage to left side.Don't use much force.If your carriage got free then install your print head and cartridges.If this will happen again then take it to service center they will change the service station or broken gear but the cost goes much high.

HP Photosmart C3180 carriage permanently stuck on right. How to fix this?


Hi,

If the carriage totally stuck on the right side of the printer, Unplug the printer from Power outlet.

Open the front access door. You will see the cartridges. Remove the cartridges. Check for any paper stuck in the Carriage Rod. Try to manually move the carriage 5-6 times left to right and it should move without any trouble. Put the cartridges back into the Cartridge slot and power on the printer

If the Carriage does not move manually, there could be chances the printer needs mechanical repair as its broken.

Regards,
Sean

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!

My C4680 ink cartridge thing is stuck to the extreme right. I can't budge it and the animated pictures are not helping. I don't have the manual to help me out. I pulled out the spent black one...


Hi, the description of your problem is little confusing. Did you mean you've already moved back the carriage to the center of is it still stuck to the extreme right? What if you turn it Off and turn back On again? Please let me know with more details so that I can assist you better. Thanks.

Printer says "Open Door Clear Cartridge Jam" How


You might wanna try removing and reinserting the cartridges and make sure that they are properly fitted in.
Sometimes cleaning the cartridge and the carriage where you took out the cartridges from with a damp lint free cloth does the trick.
If you still have that message, open the cartridge access door.
If the carriage is stuck at the right side of the printer, move the carriage to the left side by hand. If it's stuck on the left side, try moving it by hand in the right side of the printer. Then while the printer is turned on, unplug it from the wall outlet and then plug it back in.
If the printer does not turn on, use the power button.
Try printing again.

HP Pro 8500 printer has carriage jam. I have opened every door and there is no paper jam.


Sometimes the paper gets caught inside the printer all the way to the right (or left) of the print carriage. You will miss seeing it because the print carriage has moved the jamed paper to the right (or left) out of view. Carefully and manually move the print carriage to the opposite side and you might find small pieces of jammed paper there.
