Open the rear access door:
Locate the tab on the left side of the door and press it toward the right. The door will shift slightly to the right.
As the door shifts to the right, pull the door out slightly to release.
When the door is released, gently remove the door by sliding the door out and to the left.

From the rear access opening, gently pull the jammed paper out of the rollers.
NOTE: If the paper tears when you are removing it from the rollers, check the rollers and wheels for torn pieces of paper that might be remaining inside the product. If all the pieces of paper are not removed from the product, more paper jams are likely to occur.

Step three: Make sure that the print carriage can move freely
Follow these instructions to make sure the print carriage can move freely.
With the product turned on, open the print cartridge access door. The print carriage might try to move into the access area. If so, allow it to move to that position.
Without turning off the product, unplug the power cord from the back of the product. Unplug the power cord from the power source. The power cord must be unplugged to allow the parts to be moved by hand and to reset the paper feed mechanism, without the risk of an electrical shock.

Display message Carriage jam: open door, clean carriage jam and then press OK to continue


This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your Epson printer with no tasks in progress, then check for any piece of paper stuck in the carriage. Remove the paper carefully. If the paper tears, part of it might remain inside the paper path and damage the product.

Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.

Carriage jam message HP D7360


Try opening the top cover again and look into the printer with the help of flashlight or some light. I think you will find that there is paper stuck on one side of the carriage. Do this aspa since if the pape is really there, t will not let the carriage sit over the rubber gasket and will dry the ink out.

How do I get fix a "carriage jam"?


I was able to run run a piece of photo paper through a couple of times and printer now seems to be working again. The theory was that running a heavy piece of paper through might help clear little piece of paper that was not visible. The photo paper is less likely to tear if it gets jammed too.
