    Why is this assumed to be a printer issue? The mouse hourglass icon indicates an application is performing a task. More details are required for diagnosis. When does it appear, etc.?

I too have this problem and I have found how to correct it. It worked for me and hopfully it will work for you and others. Turn off your printer. Open the scanner cover. Turn your computer back on. That is what I did and it fixed it for me for now. Please send me an E-Mail if it fixed it for you. I have a sneaky suspecion that it just started working again and me opening the scanner cover was not the fix. Thanks, Wayne

When I turn on my 2410 printer the hourglass stays on endlessly and something is clicking all the time. please don't say that I have to uninstall a driver, I have this problem even before I connec


Replace the printer. The rom chip is probably trashed and the software isn't loading correctly. Also inkjets are never ever worth fixing any decent tech and the manufacturers will tell you this.

My dell 1815dn when printing also prints random symbols on top of the document. It varies from one line of random symbols at the bottom of the page to about 4-5 lines of random symbols sometimes. I've...


This is most probably a corrupt driver so try the following:

1. Open Printers and Faxes on your computer and delete the driver for your printer. Then go to dell.com and open the drivers and downloads tab. Download and reinstall your printer. If the printer is still printing out symbols, it's most likely either a problem with your connection or with the printer's hardware.

2. Try using a different cable to connect the printer and computer. If you don't have one, connect and install the printer to another computer. If this stops the symbols then you will need to buy a new cable. If it does not then it is most likely a problem with the printer's hardware and you will need to get the printer serviced.

Thank you for using FixYa!

Copier is locked up with hour glass symbol on screen


Hi info77200,

Unfortunately the hour glass symbol remaining on the screen is indicative of a firmware failure.
Unless you're a real wizard and know how to reload the firmware, you'll need the support of an onsite engineer.

Can't find the $ symbol on the 7410 officeject


I looked through the manual and on page 112 it lists the characters available. It seems the $ symbol isn't available, so you can't enter it. You can download a copy from HP here if you've misplaced your copy. The manual makes mention of an on-screen keyboard you can pick from. Maybe the symbol is there. I don't have one of these, so I can't check it for myself.

Looks like a faulty gear mechanism in your scanner. It is not able to return to the home position. You could try a hard reset: Unplug from power source and PC, wait about 5 minutes and try again. If the issue recurs, then you will need to take it in for servicing..

Unit wont start up after power failure


Answer on fixyourownprinter.com. Search there to see how to lubricate rod under scanner glass. Common fault. Mine responded instantly starting up fine after rod lubrication which stops scanner initialisation routine and leaves you looking at hourglass.
