Question about HP PSC 1610 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I was just getting ready to pull the plug on this printer of mine, and order a new one, when I happened on a solution that worked...
Unplug the unit.
Open the top.
Move the carriage to the left.
CLEAN the black plastic tray that the ink cartridge "parks" over - it seems to collect gunky ink that impedes the movement of the cartridge... also clean the "rail" hehind it. I used a Windex knock-off -- and Q-Tips, somebody else said they used alcohol.
Seems to have done the trick for me. I wasted so much time downloading drivers thinking that it was a hardware problem :-(
