SOURCE: CLEAR THE CARRIER

There could be 4 possibilities.

1. Ink cartridges lids are open which is not allowing cartridges to move freely.
2. Ink cartridges carriage will not move from its original position(left) when front cover is opened
3. Encoder strip is Dirty.
4. Encoder strip is Out of position.

Solution:
1. Open the front cover and check if ink cartridges lids are properly snapped in.

2. Turn the printer off and pull out the power cable from power socket, open the front cover and manually center the ink cartridges carriage.
Clean the metallic rod inside the printer using WD40 or Kleenex from Left corner to right corner properly.

3. Cleaning the encoder strip:
a. printer should be off and disconnected from power.
b. open the front cover.
c. Using a dry, lint free cloth, pinch the encoder strip on the right-hand side of the cartridge carriage and pull your fingers across it toward the right-hand side of the printer and you can move the cartridges carriage to clean the strip completely.
d. Note: The encoder strip is a narrow band of clear plastic and can be difficult to see without direct lighting running parallel to metallic rod.
e. Close the printer and try again to print.

4. Repositioning the Encoder strip.
a. Remove the power cord from the printer.
b. Open the front cover.
c. Gently slide the ink cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer.
d. Gently move the top part of the printer belt to the right.
e. Using an index finger, gently push encoder strip down and then back up, to get it back into the slot located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier.
f. Gently press the strip first to the rear, and then forward, to ensure that it is seated correctly.
g. Manually move the ink cartridge carrier to the left, then to the right, to check the positioning of the encoder strip.
h. Once the encoder strip has been re-seated, close the scanner lid.
i. Re-connect the power cord to the printer and try again to print.

SOURCE: How to clear carrier jam in Dell Photo All in One 944

simply open up your printer and see if there is any residual paper that get stuck, in some case if you can find some small miniature piece of sensor it might cause a erratic sensing that there is a presence of paper while there isnt, try to clear this or clean.
paper jamming indicator means there is some paper in the paper path, unless otherwise ou clear this up you cannnot print.
after you may need to power down or restart your printer once again
cheers

Pink ink cartridge leaked and all pictures now come out red


It sounds like you have clogged some of the nozzles with the pink ink. To clear this remove all the cartridges, remove the printhead (rock the internal cartridge carrier by pressing the carrier end nearest you. This should allow you to remove the carrier). Put some warm (not hot) distilled water in a bowl and soak the carrier overnight. Remove the carrier and carefully dry off the printhead. The printhead needs to sit for a couple of hours to completely dry before inserting the carrier and ink cartridges. This should clear your problem.
Let me know if you have any other problems. Thanks.

I changed the ink cartridges and now it just flashes and says clear the carrier jam and press start??? what is a carrier jam and i have cleared everything that can be cleared and it still want work, so...


The mechanism that carries the cartridges is call the carriage (carrier). Remove all the cartridges and reinstall them, now move the whole mechanism with the cartridges installed from it's original position to somewhere and verify that there's no obstructions blocking the movement of the carriage. You can simply open the front access door and move the cartridges to somewhere from where it is now. That'll help you clear the error if there's no physical damage with the machine.

If you need further help, let me know.


Good luck.


Thanks for using FixYa.

Lexmark 2400 has message saying clear carrier then press start


Good day Sir, Please check the power switch light if blinking.

  • power light blinking slow - printer is out of paper.
  • power light blinking fast - there is paper jam in paper.
  • once, pauses and blinks again - raise the scanner unit, and remove any objects blocking the path of the printer cartridge carrier. Or the print cartridge is missing/ not installed properly. Or the printer cartridge is not the correct type for the printer.
Have a nice day.
