Question about HP Photosmart D7160 InkJet Printer
There's a tension spring on the bottom on the printer that works with the paper tray - it fell off when i pulled out the letter tray to add more paper. Does anyone know how to get to this part of the printer so I can put the spring back?
This is possible but hard to explain in writing, best thing to do is go back to the store and hope that they will be able to do it for you as a service.

take out the tray
if you look on the bottom of the machine there is a metal plate.
in the middle of the plate there is a bump
turn the tray upside down and look at the bottom, there is a small hole with a plastic lever. it is probably broken.
when the tray is slid into position the lever hits the bump and releases the lifting mechanism.
replace that part or the tray. I can get you a new tray e-mail me at
