Question about HP PSC 2410 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Trouble following brief power outage

Lately, immediately following a very brief (second or two) power outage, our HP PSC2410 (2 year old) displays the hourglass (indicating it is busy with something) and starts making a noise as if it is trying to pickup some paper. We try all of the usual turn off then on tricks but these usually don't work. Thinking that it might be a cartiage jam, I open the printer and find that I can not slide out the ink cartiages as they are positioned too low as if the printer is preparing to do some traveling and printing. There are no paper jams. We usually give up, turn it off and do else. The next morning, all is well again. Any ideas or similar thing happening?

We had a brief power outage--now prinker knunks

In all probability that Power Outage caused a massive Spike or Surge on your power line. This has affected this unit. It doesn't take much to cause this type of thing and is quite common. It may be repairable, however these days buying a new one is often a better option. If you do go the repair route, go to a reputable place, & please ensure you get a firm "Quote" not an "Estimate" for repair.

After power outage, printer displays not shut down properly and keeps rebooting.

Hold the "#" and "6" key down as it reboots. This is the equiv to a cold reset. However, I cannot setup my wireless now that I've done that done the reset. It immediately reboots and goes back into the same problem. So, has the wireless section gone bad??

Hp 2510 will not turn on

I, too, have this same problem. My printer is about 5 years old. Do you think it could just be dirt?
A few months back it was doing the same thing, and miraculously began to function properly again. Then, I unplugged it and moved it to another room. Now it is doing the clicking thing again. It seems to be coming somewhere just above the printer cartridges when I lift up the cover.

4250n turns on but nothing on display

Its possible there was a voltage spike immediately preceding the power outage, thereby burning out the electronics. If you do not have a surge supressor protecting your office computers and printers, you should get one.
