Thanks for taking an interest in the HP Support Forums After reading your post I see that you are getting Error Message 0x6100006 on your printer. I will be a delight to assist you here.

Superb analysis and brilliant diagnosis of the issue before posting. 🙂  Kudos to you on that score.:)


For better clarity and to assist you better I would require more information regarding this:

When did this issue start?

Did you do any changes to the printer?




Perform a power reset

  1. Turn on the printer, if it is not already on.
  2. Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you continue.
  3. With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
  4. Wait at least 30 seconds.
  5. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
  6. Turn on the printer.

Remove and reinstall the cartridges


Step 1: Remove the cartridges

  1. Press the Power button to turn on the printer.

  2. Place your fingers into the slot on the left side of the printer, and then pull forward to open the cartridge access door. The carriage should move to the center of the cartridge access area. Wait until the carriage is idle before proceeding.

  3. Press the front of a cartridge to release it, and then pull it toward you to remove it from its slot.


    Do not leave the cartridges outside of the printer for an extended period of time. This can result in damage to both the printer and the cartridges.

  4. Check the cartridges for damage.

    • If you find a damaged cartridge, obtain a new cartridge, remove it from its packaging, and then continue to the next step. The steps to reinstall the cartridge are the same for installing a new cartridge.

    • If the cartridge is not damaged, continue to the next step to reinstall the cartridges.

Step 2: Reinstall the cartridges

  1. Slide the cartridge into its slot, and then gently push it forward until it clicks into place. Make sure that the colored dot on the cartridge label matches the colored dot on the slot.

  2. Repeat these steps for the other cartridges.

  3. Close the cartridge access door.

Let me know how it goes.

The suggested fix did not work.  As I said I am able to print from other browsers, Google Chrome is the issue.

The ink carriage  carriage cannot move. It says to clear the paper jam. There is no paper . I have gone online and have followed everything it says about checking in all the different places for paper jams or torn paper. There is none and the carriage does not move when I open the door. Then when I try to tune it off it says that there are missing cartilages and there is none missing. I received this from a friend  so it is not new but it was working properly. I bluetoothed it to my computers and phone printed test pages and then moved it to the table that it is setting on and then when my husband went to print the carriage won’t move or it moves slightly. You can hear gears moving but the carriage won’t move or sometimes slightly moves.
