Printer Cartridge Carriage Stalls

I have an HP PSC 1610 All In One. On the rt side there is a black piece, (looks like a clutch) that when the carraige bangs to the rt it comes down blocking the carriage from moving to the left. I've turned on, off, removed the back, cleaned moved the rollers everything possible yet still this little arm comes down which prevents the carriage from moving freely. Can you reccommend an easy fix?

The settings of the gears is misalligned.a technician at your place is advisable as this is a very important part of the printer if any of the arm breaks the printer may face major problems.still stick that arm with a cellow tape on it firmly and then give a print out.if the page prints properly that means it got adjusted automatically.

Chsnge ink cartridge


Hi there!
Here's what you can do to change the Printer cartridges.
1. Make sure that the printer is turned on. Turn it on if it's not.
2. Open the printer cover, then wait until the carriage is idle.
3. You will see the Tri-color & the Black cartridge. The tri color cartridge is the green one which is on the left and the Black is the one on the right.
4. Press down the Cartridge you want to replace you will notice that it will be released from the cartridge holder. Once it's loose slide the cartridge out.
5. Make sure that the correct Genuine Hp Cartridge is what you have. For your printer HP PSC 1610, HP 94 will be for the black and HP 95 is for the tri color.
6. Open the cartridge package. Remove the protective tape. Make sure that you do not touck the copper colored contact and nozzles.
7. Hold the print cartridge with the sticker facing up and the copper colored contacts facing the printer and slide it into the cartridge.
8. Use your thumb to push the cartridge all the way in. You may need a little force to make sure that the cartridge has been installed securely.
9. Once installed close the cartridge cover. Make a copy to test.
Hope this helps!

HP PSC 1610 printer gives error message: Carriage Jam, clear carriage. I open the door and there isn't a Jam. I tried the solution (clean cartridge, turn off/on couldn't reset) posted by nanotech 9 Aug...


If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your printer with no tasks in progress, then check for any piece of paper stuck in the carriage. Remove the paper carefully. If the paper tears, part of it might remain inside the paper path and damage the product.

Follow the steps for fix HP Printer Carriage Jam

  • Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.
  • Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side.
  • Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path.
  • Reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer.

I have a HP PSC 1610 all-in-one printer. Can the colour cartridge be bypassed when it asks for replacement cartridge? I only print in black and white now 99% of the time.


No , we all only wish, this is the bane or all printer users. You cannot print without all in full & being OK. Also must use color sometimes else nozzles can clog up. Must clean, too.

Remove and checl color cartridge


The problem most likely is with the electrical contact between the color cartridge and print carriage. Even if you've replaced the cartridge, if the contacts on the carriage are still dirty, it won't make a good connection with the new cartridge and the error message will still appear.

Fortunately, the HP web site has a solution posted at the following link:

Cleaning Cartridge and Print Carriage Contacts

Good luck.

Replacing the print cartridgesgtabtop.gif
  1. Turn on the HP PSC and lower the print-carriage access door.
    The print carriage will move into the access area. Figure 1: Opening the print-carriage access door
    c00034850.jpg
  2. After the carriage stops moving, push down on the top of the print cartridge to release it, and then pull it toward you out of the slot.
      NOTE: The black cartridge is on the right side of the print carriage.
    Figure 2: Removing the print cartridge
    c00034851.jpg
      NOTE: It is normal to see ink buildup in the print cartridge slots.

  3. Remove the new print cartridge from the packaging and gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab.
      CAUTION: Do not touch the copper contacts or ink nozzles. Install the cartridge immediately upon removing the tape to prevent ink from drying in the nozzles.
    Figure 3: Removing the plastic tape
    c00034852.jpg
  4. Push the new print cartridge into the appropriate slot at a slight angle, until it clicks into place.
      CAUTION: Do not attempt to push the cartridge straight into the slot. It must slide in at a slight angle.
    Figure 4: Inserting the print cartridge

  5. Close the print-carriage access door.


Using a photo print cartridgegtabtop.gif To use the photo print cartridge, remove the black print cartridge and insert the photo print cartridge in its place.
The photo print cartridge can be purchased separately and will optimize the quality of printed photos.
With the tri-color print cartridge and photo print cartridge installed, you have a six-ink system, which provides enhanced quality photos. For printing regular text documents, use the black print cartridge.
Use a print cartridge protector to keep either print cartridge secure when it is not being used. Figure 5: Storing the print cartridge

2 - Removing the print cartridge

Aligning the print cartridgesgtabtop.gif After installing or replacing a print cartridge, the HP PSC will automatically print a cartridge alignment page.

  2. Press Scan .
    The HP PSC will align the print cartridges. During the alignment the button LED will blink until the alignment is complete.
