Question about Canon MultiPASS MP370 All-In-One InkJet Printer
The carriage uses a code strip to keep track of its location. This is a very thin and very fragile strip of plastic material behind the carriage. If the code strip becomes dirty with dust or ink overspray, the carriage sensor can't read the code bars, and the printer shows a carriage jam error. This is the most common reason for this error. Very carefully clean the code strip with a clean lint-free cloth (I don't recommend paper towels) with isopropyl or denatured alcohol. You can use a q-tip also. Gently rub the code strip front and back with the alcohol-soaked cloth along the entire length, being careful not to pull the strip since the ends can easily tear. If this does not clear the error, there may be dust or dirt clogging the carriage sensor itself.
