Re: HP 7310xi printer carriage
This is a very involved repair. Requires removal of all covers and scanner assembly (lid with control panel) to get down to the carriage rod (silver bar) This will have to be removed to get the old carriage off and the new carriage on. Will do the repair for $45 if you want to ship it to us.

The carriage home position could not be detected within the specified time.
<Probable fault location>
Sensor flag, carriage HP sensor, linear scale, linear encoder, carriage relay PCB, or main controller PCB
1) Visual check
Remove foreign substances from the sensor flag, carriage HP sensor, linear scale, and linear encoder if any.
2) Replace the carriage HP sensor.
3) Replace the linear scale.
4) Replace the linear encoder.
5) Replace the carriage relay PCB.
6) Replace the main controller PCB.
Check the following steps for fixing Hp Carriage Jam Error :
Open the print carriage access door. Check for any packing material that may be blocking the internal components. Check for an orange shipping lock that may still be in place on the left side. Pull the shipping lock out, if present, and discard.
Remove and reinstall the cartridges to make sure they are properly installed. Lift the front center of the print carriage access door to open it. Lift the door up until it locks into an open position. Press down on a print cartridge and allow it to spring back up. Lift the cartridge out of the printer. Do the same for the other cartridge. Slide the black cartridge into the slot on the left and the color cartridge into the slot on the right. Press down on each one to lock it into place. Lower the print carriage access door.
Check the print cartridges to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the ink nozzles. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Remove any tape or labels. Replace the cartridges into the printer.
Push in on the tab on the left side of the clean-out door on the back of the printer to open the door. Lift the door out of the printer. Check for any paper jams. Jammed paper can block the printer cartridge carriage from moving. Pull any jammed paper out.
Service Station failure. The possible cause could be:
The steps counted by the Service Station motor are not consistent with the expected length of the current movement. The Aerosol Fan has reached its maximum current limit. The Service Station motor has shutdown because of blockage.
Try the following:
Remove ALL the Printheads and clean the flex contacts on the Printheads and in the Carriage Assembly. Replace ALL the Printheads. Replace the Service Station/Aerosol Fan Assembly
Without knowing the make it's hard, but it could be that some of the roller bearings used to make the carriage run smoothly have come out of the retainers and dropped from the machine. If as you say there is a lot of slop in the inner carriage it's a fair bet that's your problem
This is a Power On Self Test (POST) error. It indicates a missing 24VDC. The probable cause is an over current condition from a motor (24 volts is used to drive motors). The power supply has circuitry that shuts it down in over current conditions to protect itself. There is probably a bind in a mechanical mechanism causing extra stress and over current in one of the motors. The motors are: carriage belt drive, paper drive, and service station motor. Remove the covers and move each mechanism manually to check for binds or broken parts. If nothing is found, replacing the motors is the next best bet. Replace them in this order: Carriage motor, Paper motor, Service station. If that does not cure the problem, replace the Power Supply and finally the Formatter Board.

If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your Kodak 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.
Fix 'Carriage Jam: Open Door, clear carriage jam, and then press OK to continue' error message Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck. Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side. Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path. Reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer. http://www.fixya.com/support/t2952766-kodak_all_in_one_printer_paper_jam
This error code is a Carriage motor error. Below is the outline for what to check and what to repair/replace. Good luck.
is displayed when a jam or other physical problem puts an excessive
load on the carriage motor so that the carriage could not operate. This is displayed when the carriage motor could not reach the prescribed speed within the prescribed time.
Probable problem locations Foreign
object in carriage movement path, carriage rail, carriage belt, linear
scale, linear encoder, carriage motor, engine controller, system
Remedy 1. Carriage movement path check Remove any foreign objects (jammed sheet) in the carriage movement path. 2. Carriage rail Use rail cleaner to clean the carriage rails if a visual check reveals that they are dirty. 3. Carriage belt If a visual check reveals slack in the carriage belt, remount the belt. 4. Replace the linear scale. 5. Replace the linear encoder. 6. Replace the carriage motor. 7. Cable connection check Replace the cable between the carriage motor and engine controller if the connection is not functioning normally. 8. Replace the engine controller. 9. Replace the system controller.
