HP6110xi filled with packing peanuts in move. How do I disassemble to fix?
Hi! We just moved, and our 6110xi was brilliantly packed directly in a box (not bagged first) full of packing peanuts. The peanuts shifted into every nook and cranny of the machine, even inside behind the white cable that the print cartridges run on, etcetera. I just cannot get everything out, and my printer is currently dead in the water. I need to take it apart to get everything out, but I have no idea how to do that, if it's even possible for me to do at home. I follow directions well, but I'd like to HAVE some before I just randomly starting unscrewing things. Any thoughts? Thanks! :)

Re: HP6110xi filled with packing peanuts in move. How do...
If you can open the side first or back cover it is helpful to see whats inside. Then you can see where is that peanuts go =). Make sure you open it very careful coz all the material uses to that unit is all plastic. If it doesn't come out u need to look for the screw dont force to loosen it. Make sure you put it back step by step too and dont lost that screws. Good luck

How to Pack a Shipping Container

these tips to help you handle your packing without too much stress.

pack them into large boxes which then become difficult to lift.
5. Small parts - the worst thing is to protect your furniture before a
move, only to find that you've lost some of the screws and small parts
when it comes to rebuilding. Put all your small bits into zip lock
bags that are clearly labelled.
6. Valuables - it's best to carry really valuable items such as
passports, jewelry and medical records yourself. anything that would
be devastating and irreplacable, it's best kept on your person.
7. Pack the heavier items first and the lighter ones on top. Pack
things tightly so things dont move around and potentially break. You
can use blankets and bedding to fill any gaps.

Good protection of computers.place computer in a garbage bag then place in packing boxes surrounded by with poly stryene foam cheezels or shredded paper. also do this for any thing fragile !
label side of box with room box has to go into as well as destination address, name ,and room on top of each box. As movers place boxes on top of each other and move three boxes on trolleys . you can end up with boxes placed in wrong rooms if only relying on top of box labels.
Move most vital items last into the truck as they will be first out of the truck at destination.
Put in in a plastic bag
Then get a bigger than the printer sized box
Fill the box with shredded paper to surround and protect the printer from physical shock then tape up box so it can't open . Packing tape is good or wide sticky tape. print out a address to send it to with senders address and sticky tape on to top of box and so to protect the label from damage cover completely with see thru sticky tape. .
If you do not have shredded paper buy some polystyrene or plastic sheets with air bubbles in it. Check out a post office they may sell it or office works store or goggle packaging protection
