ink cartidge carrier jam with paper jam message indicated

I have a "Paper Jam" message but there is no paper in the feed, rollers or duplexer.  I cleared the message and the printer tried to feed a sheet of paper but the ink cartridge carrier appears to be jammed to the right side.  I tried to manually move the carrier to the middle but it seems to be stopped by a mechanical-like stop.  Is there a way to release this stop or disassemble the cover to see if there is something else that is stopping the carrier?

@Crawford3579, Welcome to HP Support Community!


If you have already performed the steps from the document 'Carriage Jam' or 'E3' Error Displays and the issue persists, it could be a hardware failure.


Please reach out to the HP Support in your region regarding the service options for your printer.


Hope this helps!
