Question about HP Photosmart 2410 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Carriage seems to malfunction at times. It either doesn't go the the end of the track each time or is sluggish. The print tends to walk toward the margin and even past the margin on the second or third page and causes the paper jam light to come on. In the worst cases I hear a clunking noise. I have had some success in oiling the track, but it only lasts for a few weeks until it happens again. Any suggestions?
This is a common problem. You did the correct procedure. Lubricating the rail is what I would do. What you need to do is find the best type of oil to use. Some may actually make it worse. Start by cleaning the rail with alcohol. Saturate your rag and move the rail back and forth to make sure you get all of the old lubrication out of the rail bushings. Really do a good job at this because the old stuff is actually creating the problem. Next is lubricating the rail. I use 3 in 1 sewing machine oil. It is a very thin oil that will last longer for you. Never use teflon or wd-40 this will build up and make it worse. Give it a try. I also have seen the rail where it is worn because of lack of lubrication and it was not worth fixing but that is the extreme case. Thank you for your question, Bill
