Photosmart 5514 CARRIAGE JAM - NOISE

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Searched and found other people with the same problem but couldn't find a solution as all the HP documents and troubleshooting don't address this HARDWARE issue.


The Ink Cartridge Carriage is STUCK ON THE RIGHT - makes a loud grinding noise as it tries to do its normal thing on startup.

How do I fix this?  Please help.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the HP Support Community.


Are you able to move the carriage manually? If not and if you've performed all the steps from here:, I recommend you to contact the HP Support Team regarding this as this could be a hardware issue.




Note:  Select the country accordingly to get the contact details for support.


Let me know if this helps.
