Question about HP OfficeJet 6110 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Greetings. We're trying to service a client's similar model. After disassembling it, we found a worn composite gear located at the ink cartrigde cleaner moving plattform (located at the front right corner of the product; it has 2 rubber cushions inside that protects the cartridge's nozzles), and a little "L" shaped plastic piece with a hooked end, located near the paper out tray (we suppose it's used in pair with a similar one for pushing the printed paper out in its tray). We substituted the gear, glued back the plastic hooked piece, and reconnect all wire harnesses, leaving clear the sides of the equipment to see it working. We observed the motor assy. located at the cartrigde cleaner unit overturning and causing the rubber cushions plattform to get stuck (therefore causing gear damage). Then, because of this failure, the cartridge carriage returned violenty to the left corner, causing breaking of the little plastic hooks (they get out during the equipment startup, but only after the cartridge carriage returns to the right corner). To isolate the problem, we removed the ribbon cable of the cleaner box motor during startup; that eliminated the violent carriage left return, but the error still flashes on the product's LCD. We have concluded the main board (PWB), Q1636-20261A, is the culprit. Can anyone agree with us, or have another view to the right solution? Thanks in advance.
I got the error message about clearing the carriage and no matter how many times I turned it off, unpluged, turned in on again, checked for paper jams, etc, the printer could not get reset. But after much trial en error, the following procedure did the trick: Unplug the power cord and open the door. To the right side, you'll see the ink tray. Carefully pull it to the center and unistall the ink cartriges. Close the door, plug in the power cord and turn the printer on. It should ask you to install the left ink cartrige first. Do it and close the door again. Then it'll ask you to install the right cartrige. Do it as well and turn the printer off again. Turn it back on, let it initialized, and your printer should be ready to work again. I hope this work for you as it did for me. Good luck.

This is simpler than you'd think - it's due to the rubber "parkers" under the cartrdiges' rest position being mis-aligned. Solution: 1.Whilst Printer is on, remove power cord 2. Remove power cord from AC outlet 3. By hand, move print cartridges to the left 4. Pull rubber "parkers" under where the cartridges were fully towards you. Now move the cartridges by hand left-to-right to ensure no further obstruction. 5. Connect power cord to printer 6. Connect power cord to AC outlet 7. Switch on. You may need to re-align print heads at this point but carriage jam will be solved.

I just solved this error with my computer! Unplug printer, do not turn off! Remove your ink cartridges, right below where the cartridges were are (2) filter sponges! The sponges may have excess ink piled on them, clean filters with a wet old rag or baby wipe til the clump is gone! Then, manually slide your ink carriage holder to the left side of the printer slowly, check to see if there is anything behind there also! Turn printer (paper holder side down to floor) , lightly shake if there is something inside your printer, it should fall out! Afterwards, slide cartridge holder back to home position and close cartridge door! Your printer should work fine after, that mines did!

I just went about an hour of tech help on the HP 7110 with this problem. After resetting and all of their advice the thing will not work and says paper jam. The tech stated that it was a hardware problem. It seems that for $500 they would produce a device that will last longer than two years. I will check the above tips to see if this is what happened to my printer. Thanks for the information that you have provided.

The carriage jam that can be cleared by hitting the "Enter" key can be the result of a dirty sensor on the left side of the service station. It is a short piece of green circuit board with a rectangular metal target in the center, facing up. The ink coats it to the point that it can be nearly unrecognizable. It is easily cleaned with rubbing alcohol, or water. I prefer the rubbing alcohol because it will dry more quickly, reducing the chance of any electrical shorting. This solution worked perfectly on my D135 for the "Carriage Jam" problem.

I came across this problem too. I googled for "carriage jam" "hp psc 2110" and found this page on HP Korea's Support Site (the printer seems to be a Korean OEM): http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00669013&lc=ko&cc=kr&dlc=ko&product=79488 It has a video showing how to solve the problem. 1) unplug printer 2) push printer cartridges to far left 3) open back of printer and spin the rolls inward, then replace the lid to close the back up again. 4) while holding the enter and cancel buttons, plug the printer back in. this will initiate a full reset. got my printer working again.

I had been strugling with an annoying "Press Enter to Align cartdridges" on my hp oficejet 6110 all-in-one, for at least 2 years. I tried unsuccesfully all the solutions posted to this thread, even the video from HP Korea's Support Site that someone posted here on Jan 03, 2007. I was about to dump my hp piece of ****, when all of a sudden i had a feeling and purchased a new set of print cartdriges. Believed or not, It solved the problem!
I can't believe that if HP makes a big ammount of profit by saling printer cartdriges, they don't advise to correct this annoying problem with their printers by purchasin a new set of cartdriges.
If you're facing the same annoying "Clear carriage jam" problem, i advise you to check the warranty date printed on your HP cartdriges, and if they are still under warranty, have HP replace them immediately! I figured out this too late, therefore the warranty date had already expired. HP sucks! If they appreciatte my business, at least they should refund me the cost of the cartdriges. If i were HP's CEO i would fire all the incompetents in HP that couldn't advise the customer to just purchase a new set of print cartdriges.
BTW, it's annoying that a failure on the HP print cartdriges, render completely unusable my "All-in-on" HP officejet 6110, how come that i couldn't use the scanner nor the fax, just because it couldn't align the print cartdries. HP Sucks!

I came across 2 common problems that bring up the "Clear carriage jam" error on different printers, both to do with gears, which are unavailable to replace- on the d135 a lower gear on the cleaning station that gets damaged and will not activate the other gears, and on the 5110(closer to 6110) a gear driving the service station has a pin that breaks often - Under a cover held on by a couple of screws is two springs and maybe six gears. The one outside the 'sump' that directly drives the cartridge squeegee and stoppers is the one with the pin that breaks off. good luck with it, hope this helped
