SOURCE: error - carriage jam message

My Photosmart 2610 just started having this same problem today. As many of you have done, I also went to the hp support website and tried just about everything. Finally I discovered the answer to my problem on my own. Here's what I did (you might want to have a wet rag handy to wipe the ink off your fingers):

1) With the printer on, I pressed "okay" to clear the error message. You should immediately hear the sound of the carriage (the contraption that holds the cartridges) moving inside.

2) Open the print cartridge access door (the main access point for the cartridges) and confirm that the carriage is indeed moving.
If the carriage won't move at all, I'm not sure that this solution will help you. However, if the carriage moves from side to side after you press "okay", please read on.

3) This is unorthodox, so bear with me: when the carriage moves away from it's "resting place" (in my printer it's on the right hand side) and is near the center of the printer, unplug the power cord from the printer. The purpose of this is to free up the undercarriage (which was the part that actually was jammed on my printer).

4) Ensure that the carriage moves freely from left to right and right to left by pushing gently on its sides.

5) Move the carriage to left side of the printer so you have room to access the undercarriage.

6) It might be helpful to have a flashlight or some other light targeting the undercarriage for this next part. If you look directly underneath the undercarriage, you should see a foam/spongy product resting in the base of the printer. The purpose of the sponge is to absorb any ink that escapes from the cartridges. Herein lies the problem: over time, as the undercarriage adjusts to enable the carriage and its cartridges to do their work, the undercarriage gets caught on the inky sponge. Note that the undercarriage is fragile, but is moveable by gently pushing it toward the front or back of the printer.

7) Adjust the undercarriage so you can see the sponge and the "axel" (for lack of a better term) that turns to move the undercarriage forward and back. It may take some detective work, but you should be able to determine where the sponge is supposed to lie. Your goal here is to push the sponge down as far as it will go so that it won't obstruct the movements of the undercarriage.

8) On my printer, there was also a small amount of sponge wrapped around the "axel" that prevented it from moving smoothly. I unwrapped it and double-checked that nothing else was obstructing movement.

9) Final step: leave everything where you moved it, shut the lid, and plug it back in. A little prayer never hurts either. Good luck! AIM ID if you need more help: GnarlyVeaux

SOURCE: How to Clear carriage jam

Dear it's the carriage jam error. so it mean that your carriage is jam not paper. so open the printer where you insert the cartridge. check whether it is jam or what . cartridge carrier is jam kindly turn off the printer and try to move the cartridge head by hand very gently and if seems to be stuck than check for anything which abort him to move freely so than might be anything like dust or else. when you get success in moving the head put some machine lubricant on the rod on which head moves and check it ok.

SOURCE: Carriage Paper Jam in Photosmart hp c6180 all-in-one-printer

Here's what you do. Take a look at the photo below.
Open the cover of the printer, where the ink cartridges are located. Behind the ink cartridges is the carriage, which is a box that moves side-to-side on a pair of rails. It's the thing that sprays the ink onto the paper.

You have to reach in with your hand and slide this thing to the center. Then, look to the very sides, left and right, for any bits of paper. If you look at the second picture, you can see my finger pointing to a small bit of paper that tore of and got jammed into the side. See the little crumpled bit of paper? It's preventing the carriage from sliding all the way to the right. You could have little bits on the right or left side. I had to reach in with needle-nose pliers to grab the paper bits out, but maybe your fingers are small enough.

Once the little bits of paper were out, I was back in business. Good luck!

SOURCE: open door, clear carriage jam and press enter

If you have opened the paper moving roller, it may not be fitted properly.
There exist a circular timing strip on the left side of mechanism which actually senses the roller movement and position.
If the circular strip is not put properly between the sensors, the sensors willl read no movement even if the rollers are moving. Logically it means a 'jam' so it is dispalyed over.
Please place the circular strip properly between sensors.
The problem will be resolved.

Clear carriage jam


Ok guys I was struggling with the same issue for HP 3520, so I opened the cartridge access door and press down on a small black piece of plastic (that holds the carriage in place) once you press it there will be a slight click sound and thenn move the carriage to the right hand side.
Now close the lead and click ok the clear message.

You should be ok.

This method worked for my model.
You must have the power turned on otherwise it won't move.

Hi, my HP D4360 DeskJet printer isn't printing. Both the power and resume lights are on and blinking, as well as both the ink lights. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks


The power and resume lights blinks due to two reasons. 1) If there is any kind of paper jam in the printer.Then its internal assembly cannot move so the lights blinks.So clear the paper jam if any.Open the cover and check if any paper jam.also there is a access door at the back to check any paper jam.The back plastic door can be opened to remove paper jam. But if you are confirmed that there is no paper jam then the other possibility. 2) The printer cartridges are faulty and needs replacement.There are two print cartridges in the printer.One color and one black.Any of the one can be faulty or in some cases both are faulty.But before replacing cartridge remove the cartridge and clean the brown dotted circuit on cartridge then reinsert the cartridges and check.But if this does not solve the problem then replace the cartridge one by one and solve the problem. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Clear carriage jam -hp d7460


Carriage jam usually comes from ink on the clear encoder strip that runs across behind the carriage. You need a damp Q-tip to clean from one end to the other, The other thing, on the HP is the cleaning station on the right gets gummed up with old ink and won't go toward the back fully, stopping the carriage.

The color cartridge sping was loose. I am in the process of super gluing it into place. Hopefully it will work.
