Unplug the printer from the wall socket, use a lint flint-free and try and wipe clean the carriage path / paper path thoroughly inside the printer. There might be very small debris or dust particles which might be causing slight issues for the free carriage movement.
Get a flat something to use as a pry bar. I would suggest the back of a spoon handle, or a dull table knife. Insert the pry bar between the top of the cartridge and the underside of the carriage slot. Slide it forward and then gently lift the pry bar slightly, just enough to allow the cartridge to be pulled free.
If the printer has been printing continuously for a long time, the Print Head Holder may not move to the center since the Print Head may overheat. Opening the Top Cover while printing moves the Print Head Holder to the right. Close the Top Cover, and reopen it after printing finishes.
If the paper is even slightly askew, the rollers will pick it up a little crooked, and — guess what — the crooked sheet will immediately get jammed. So even though there`s no paper stuck when you start printing, the loose paper guides are ensuring that a sheet gets jammed whenever the printer starts doing its thing.
Certain printers can print with an empty cartridge, while others require that all cartridges have some ink.
Leave the ink cartridges installed when you transport the printer. Transporting the printer with the cartridges removed can damage the printer.
The printer might display an error if the ink cartridges are not correctly installed. Remove the ink cartridges, check them for any plastic tape, reinstall the ink cartridges, and then try to print again.
Low-quality paper leaves an accumulation of tiny paper bits often referred to as “paper dust” inside the machine. This “dust” is one of the top causes of paper jams. More dust means more jams. Besides jams, the dust also contributes to poor-quality prints and causes machine parts to wear at a faster rate.
Updated: 02/07/2022 by Computer Hope. A paper jam is when paper or other printed material gets stuck or lodged in a printer and cannot eject. When this occurs, the printer does not function properly until the paper is manually removed.
If your printer has a paper path cover behind the carriage, remove the cover, and then remove any jammed paper. Pull out the input tray, and then remove any jammed paper. If your printer has a bottom cleanout door, carefully lift the printer and look under it, and then remove any jammed paper from the bottom cleanout.
There are four possible causes why the toner does not stick to the paper/media when printing: The wrong type of paper/print media is being used. The Paper Type setting is wrong for the type of paper/media being used. One or more of the toner cartridges being used are not supported or are not working correctly.

You can confirm it by looking at the copy that has the line. If it is dirt on the glass, the line won’t go all the way from top to bottom. There will be a margin on each end.

Workforce 600 continues to bend corner of paper then jam where the sheet passes through the metal platen at the right side of printer.
ANSWER : Everytime that I have seen that happen it was because there was a small scrap of paper in the paper path on the side of the fold. I have dislodged hundred, if not thousands of them by shoving a thin, flexible plastic stick down the paper path. You can also cut a piece of file folder to size and use that. For small scraps of paper, it is usually stiff enough to clear the obstruction.
