Hp Printer Error "Carriage cannot move paper jam" when non exists.
The printer made strange noises this week. Assuming you are certain there is no paper jam and tipped the printer upside down as well. You have an error that leaves the print heads in the middle near the middle or left or right.
This is for you. "Carriage cannot move paper jam"
Whats happening is the print heads slide and are moved by a motor and belt.
To know whereabouts the print head is there is a resistance strip.
This is a strip of what looks like old real to real magnetic tape.
Its stretched as a strip in line with the print heads and is hidden from view.
Under the plastic see Arrow, is the location of this strip.
A sensor similar to a magnetic tape head which reads its position.
look at the image and just below this you will feel it. Clean this length of tape with some nail varnish cleaner and a non lint cloth.
You can slide the print head to clean the hole length.Your pint head will now position and park correctly.
