HP Photo Envy 7858 printer carriage cannot move error

HP Recommended
Example: Photo Envy 7858
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I tried to print a double sided print job and now I am receiving a "printer carriage cannot move" error. I've checked for a paper jam, removed the stuck paper (in one piece, no pieces left behind) cannot find anything else wrong. But the printer carriage error is still there. HELP!

Welcome to the HP support community.

 

Check for obstructions in the carriage path

  1. With the printer on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.

  2. If your printer has a battery, remove the battery.

  3. Open the door to access the carriage inside of the printer.

    Examples of carriage access doors

    Opening an access door on top of the printerOpening an access door on the front of the printer

  4. Look in the carriage path for debris such as crumpled paper or dislodged labels, and then remove any that you find.

    Example of a printer with debris in the carriage path

    View inside a printer showing crumpled paper in the carriage path causing a carriage jam

  5. If the carriage on your printer has a latch, make sure it is closed.

  6. Use your hand to move the carriage to each side, making sure it moves freely. If the carriage is stalled or docked to one side of the printer and you cannot move it, continue with these steps.

  7. Close the carriage access door.

  8. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer, and then turn the printer on.
