I can't show ink detail. So, i don't know what time can i change cartridge. I wanna to know how to solve this problem. thanks


1 Check the back of your computer to make sure that the printer is appropriately connected to the computer and is plugged in. If the printer is not plugged into the computer, find the printer jack on the back of the computer and plug it in before you move on to the next step.

2 Click on the "Start" menu button which is located on bottom left hand corner of your screen. Click on the "Settings" bar and notice that a list of functions pop up to the left of the settings button. Click on the control panel icon.

3 Look for the printer/fax icon in the control panel window. Double click on the printer icon.

4 Find the icon for your printer in the opened window and right click on the icon. Now click on the "Preferences" option.

5 Look for the menu box pop up with tabs near the top of the box. Click on the "Services" tab.

6 Click on "Service this device." You will find the button on the Services menu that you just activated.

7 Click on the estimated ink level tab and a graphic will appear indicating how much ink is left in the cartridge.

Loud clicking noise when turn on printer


I would check wherever possible for foreign objects in the printer. Failing that, a partial reset is available for your PSC 2410:

A partial reset can be done by:

1) Unplugging the power cord (you are already there!)
2) Press and hold the (#) key and (3) key while plugging the unit back in

Printer problem


Mine does the same thing, it appears to be a scanner sensor that has failed. The machine starts by lighting up the scanner, then moving out of park position, then repeatedly trying to move it back into the parked position. It appears to be a sensor that is not working, and needs a part replacement.

Hi, when you lift the cover where the flatbed glass is can you see the scanner trying to move back and forth? Also you might want to check and make sure the scanner lock didn't get moved to where the scanner just goes back in forth ? Are you getting any error codes?

Making funny clicking noise and hour glass showing that it is processing won't go away


As a follow-on to solution 2 (thanks for the post BTW), I found the problem is indeed the light bar, but rather than breaking into the printer to move and lube the light bar, I found success by simply shaking the printer with the left side down, to move the light bar along it's track to the left. (the shaking motion is sort of like getting ketchup out of a bottle).

This worked better for me than dismantling the printer with a special screw driver and seemingly needing to break the panel to get to the third screw. Hopefully this helps.
