Konica® Printer Carriage Jam
Know everything about Konica carriage jam.
Konica Printers are perfectly suitable for all printing environments, including homes, offices and many others. They are compatible with almost all the operating systems and are a perfect blend of functionality, speed, quality and value. Some of the Konica Printers available in the market include Konica Laser Printer, Konica Color Laser Printer and more. In your Konica Printer, the carriage is a compartment where the ink cartridges are held together. This carriage slides back and forth in order to transfer ink onto the paper. Carriage jams might occur because of several reasons like obstructions in the path of the carriage, a paper jam or even issues with the product software. When the carriage is stuck, there is a grinding noise on printing because the actuator arm gets stuck, which prevents the carriage from moving. Pulling paper from inside the front cover can cause mechanical damage to your Konica printer.
Some of the issues that might come to one’s mind in order to prevent carriage jams include:
- How can I print on envelopes while preventing carriage jam
- What is carriage return
- How can I avoid paper jams caused by recycled paper
- Defective hardware
How can I print on envelopes while preventing carriage jam
Always tuck the flap inside the envelope while printing. Also, the envelope slot should be used for printing single envelopes. For printing multiple envelopes, the In-tray should be used.
What is carriage return
Carriage return is a command, symbol or key that results in the printer being positioned or the cursor being displayed on the left margin. It checks paper feeding as well.
How can I avoid paper jams caused by recycled paper
Good quality recycled papers are as reliable as any other sheet of paper. Just make sure that the paper you are using should not be wet, torn, dog-eared or damaged in any other way as this might result in paper jams, hence causing carriage jams.
The two hardware issues that are most common for carriage jams include paper feed roller problems and fuser unit issues. When the paper feed rollers wear out, multiple sheets of paper might get stuck resulting in paper jam. Fuser unit hardware errors apply to laser printers only. The fuser unit heats up the printer toner and fuses it to the page. Because of the heat and pressure involved, the fuser unit is a common source of failure. These two issues can result in carriage jams.
