Question about HP Photosmart 2610 All-In-One InkJet Printer

My HP 2610 defalt has changed to fax instead of print mode

Without doing anything to my knowledge, my printer now automatically has moved to a 2600 series fax mode instead of the 2600 series print mode that I have been using since I purchased it three years. When I click on print anywhere, HP Photosmart 2600 series fax shows up on the name line. Next to the icon of the machine is a black circle with a white check mark in it. The same circle and check mark appear in printer information in my computer's control panel. I read the owner's manual and followed the instructions to reset the factory defaults. When I reset the defaults, the printer mode I have been using for years is restored, but only for the document that is open and ready to print. When I want to print another document, the fax mode has returned. How can I restore my normal print mode? It is annoying to have to manually change the mode each time. Your assistance will be greatly appreciated

I have to either hit the start button or the menu button to recieve a fax. I'm not always home to do this. How can I get a fax without having to sit by it?


It sounds like you have the fax reception mode set for manual instead of automatic. Not sure on this model, but there is either an option in the setup menu for the printer or a button right on the control panel that changes this option. You want automatic mode turned on.

My HP 2610 All in One printer will not print anything from my computer. Have uninstalled and reinstalled software by still will not communicate.


1. Check to see if another printer that was installed previously is set as a default printer in the printer and fax icon in the control panel.
If you have one there right click and delete.
Add your new printer or do a search for new printer and locate your printer and install it.
Windows "help" will guide you through the setup or your instruction manual that came with the printer.

Fax recption


not that I know of. If it ain't on the printer management software suite, then there are few outside developers for that option. Did you check the settings on the Fax receive to see that you can save to a file, instead of outputing it directly?

Extremely slow copying


Cartridges may give a very slow printing if internally damaged, or :
When using colored paper in the all-in-one, printing or copying is slow.This issue is a result of the automatic paper type sensor misreading the colored paper as photo paper. The print out takes longer because the unit is printing in Best mode instead of Normal mode.
  1. Click Start , point to Settings , and then click Control Panel .
  2. Double-click Printers and Faxes .
  3. Right-click the appropriate all-in-one, and then click Printing Preferences .
  4. Click the Paper/Quality tab and under Type is: select Plain Paper . This sets the default paper type setting to Plain Paper.
Hope this helps.

Black printing morphs into red after black ink cartridge installation


Your printer creates it's black by using ALL the colours together. This effectively gives a very dark purple rather than black.

It sounds like you have a colour cart that is drying up or may be struggling to get enough air into the cartridge. Make sure you have removed any tape over the vent holes if you are using compatible inks. If not then try running a couple cleaning cycles via the button panel/driver.

If you alter the settings in the driver by going into START - PRINTERS AND FAXES and then right click on your 2610 and select PROPERTIES - the changes you make in here will be set as the default settings for each print job.

New black print cartridge not working


I only use refill HP inks. When the cartridge prints gray instead of sharp black it means the ink well is clogged. Yes, that can happen on a new cartridge. Sometimes it happens when they put too much ink in the cartridge, or even heat can make it not work. Also streaking black lines is the problem of the ink not coming out properly. Easiest thing to do is go to a refill station like Cartridge World and have them test it or clean it out. You can also make sure the printer, not the cartridge is clean. Ink builds up an pools. Get some Q-Tips and clean up all that spilled ink. Sometimes in the software it says you can clean the print head, do that too.
