With the lid open, you will see the two arms that stick out of the lid, and go into the body of the printer, they are black. and on the far left and right of each side of the lid. They have Teeth on them like a saw. When the lid is closed, these go down into the printer, and hit a little micro button on the back of the printer. When this button is pressed, the printer knows that the lid is closed. I am guessing that this button has gone bad, so the printer does not know you have opened the lid, and therefore it does not move the print cartridges into the parked posistion.

HP PSC 1610 printer gives error message: Carriage Jam, clear carriage. I open the door and there isn't a Jam. I tried the solution (clean cartridge, turn off/on couldn't reset) posted by nanotech 9 Aug...


If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your printer with no tasks in progress, then check for any piece of paper stuck in the carriage. Remove the paper carefully. If the paper tears, part of it might remain inside the paper path and damage the product.

Follow the steps for fix HP Printer Carriage Jam

  • Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.
  • Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side.
  • Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path.
  • Reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer.

I have inserted both my blacl & colour cartriges properly but still my printer is showing some problem with my black cartrige


When ink cartridges get low they can dry out if you do not print that frequently. So try a new cartridge. Make sure that the carriage is clean, wipe down the copper contacts on the carriage under the black cartridge with alcohol. Also ensure that the cartridges themselves are not all coated in ink.

The printer do not recognize the new replacement cartrige


I have many epson printer, some more than 5 years old. It's ok. some have printed more than 50.000pages, it's ok.
If Ink cartridge Unrecognizable, there are two posibilities : Chip Error at ink tank, or printer error. For chip error, try to plug the ink tank to another printer (same type). If the ink tank recognized by other printer, so the problem is printer.
So ;
1. Check chip conector at head carriage.
2. Check the wiring of the head, and chip.
If two point above is ok, the last action is check the power supply and board. It may be epprom is damage.

We reciently bought new ink cartriges and now when we try to print nothing is printed. There are no error messages on anything either....the paper just comes out blank. We also tried changing the ink...


Try reseating both ends of the printer cable.

Assure that there is nothing in the cartridge carriage to block the contacts and/or cause a seating issue.

Changing cartridge


Just above where you feed the paper there is a door - open it, wait for the ink cartriges to stop moving, to your right - remove and replace in the same way the cartrige you're replacing.
