Question about HP Photosmart 2610 All-In-One InkJet Printer
When printing, black printot smears, while color printout does not. I've run the clean printer option and it doesn't do any good. I cannot get the printer to align either. I always get the message that the alignment failed. I've had this printer for many years, and am just now having this problem.
I am afraid that Dennis (Writing below) is correct, When you have smearing it is a print head problem and they need to be replaced, If you have had this printer for many years (HP GOOOD Printer) you should check prices on a new machine, the reason for that is that HP has discontinued support on many machines as of 1 Jan 2013, If you can find a print head for your system it may be half the price of a new machine, Also; if one print head is going it may not be long before you see the same problem on the one or more color print head. It is probably not what you were hoping to hear but right now HP has several really good systems on sale,

Testimonial: "You must be right about the print head, as I've tried everything else that I've seen on this web site and on HP's web site. It has been a very good and reliable printer for at least 7 years it seems, so I can't complain. Thanks for your comment. I will look into a new print head before buying a new printer. Thanks again ~ this web site is great!"

To solve the
# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.
1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.
# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.
