Its the problem of the inner wheel that spins and adjusts the cartridge carriage to move fluently and bring the carriage in to center when the topo door is lifted.but that ger is either got blocked by a dust or any small piece of paper between them or any foreign object other weise the gear is cracked and cannot move properly so its creating this problem.you cannot view the gear without opening the printer.as its a black gear with a tranperant same type of wheel stuck up on the black gera its exactly on the left side of the very last of the printer.

The Rear Paper Exit Frame needs to be replaced. After a few years of printing, the heating element (Fuser Assembly) gets hot and it will eventually erode the plastic in this area causing the gear mounts to become brittle and literally break apart. The Rear Paper Exit Frame should be replaced and tested at a depot facility
Hope this helps

Thanks for using Fixya
Have a nice day!

Hi..I suggest you open the door on top with the power on.
The ink cartridges should move to the center. Remove and
reinstall each one separately. It is likely one isn't seated
properly.
check it out..
thank u..

The sound is coming from the cartridges. The roller is sticking and causing the gears to make that noise. Removed the cartridge and manually turned the roller until it turned smoothly. (this a little hard but it worked).

Clean the encoder strip on both sides with a paper towel and water. Be cautious or you will disconnect the encoder strip from it's mounting hooks. The encoder strip is a thin plastic piece that runs horizontally the length of printer at the midpoint of the carriage.

If cleaning the encoder strip fails to solve the problem, the carriage rod probably needs to be lubricated. I believe that HP originally used grease to lubricate the rod, not just any grease but a low viscosity grease. Some people have used common silicone grease and other types and ended up making the problem worse. A reliable person on this forum has suggested Chemplex 710. You should be able to find it online.

    Usually reason for noise is



    A clicking (grinding) sound coming from the scanner is caused by the scanner head drive belt slipping, most likely because it cannot find it's index position (or home position). Failure to find it's index position (IP) causes the scanner head to eventually hit something solid causing the belt to slip (grind, grind). (Imagine what would happen if a scan was started from a random place.) The scanner establishes it's IP by detecting a white strip on the underside of the glass on the far right.

    Why can't the scanner head find the white strip? There are several possibilities, the main electronics has failed, the scanner head has failed, the white strip it too dirty to be detected, or the scanner head bulb and/or mirror are dirty. (A dirty scanner head bulb or mirror is sort of like me trying to see through fogged glasses).

    My suggestion is to clean the underside of the glass, giving particular attention to the white strip. Then clean the scanner bulb (gently) and the mirror (in the long slot) with a cotton swab sparingly moistened with Windex or similar cleaner. Doing this in addition to all of the other "magical" solutions suggested may get the scanner working.

    Open the catridge, clean the rollers and again try it.





    Clean the rollers with a help of cotton. Might be, if the rollers are not clean , this issue might be there.

Thanks fixya.com
You helped me CLEAN the HP PSC 1610
it had MASIVE amounts of waisted ink
in the area that it WANTS to waste ink
to keep the cartridges FLOWING...
BUT... NOW ... HERE IS A SOLUTION TO
THE CLICKING NOISE
THE RATCHIT NOISE
HP PSC 1610 NOISE
It seems that HP (as with most all manufacturers)
has DESIGNED-IN A PART THAT WILL BREAK ! ! !
PICTURE ATTACHED
explanation...
opened the mid section of the printer
moved the ink holder module to the far left
pushed the cleaning tray
(it moves to you and away from you)
away towards the rear of the machine
used masive amounts of isopropyl alcohol
and an old toothbrush
to clean most of the gunk ink buld-up
(started with q-tips but it was not enough)
After cleaning ... the machine worked again...
BUT
that noise was still there
after carefull inspection
I saw the problem
there was a hairline crack in a small plastic part
above a rotating gear
when the carriage came to the right
it was suposed to move that part
off or away from the gear
but because it was cracked
it did not move properly
SOLUTION
crazy glue or super glue
and shim to hold in place while drying
(maby heat with a light bulb while drying)

Making a loud noise when the paper is feeding.


This is what the HP website says about noises in the 1610..
Unexpected Noises s.gif s.gif
Issue Unexpected noise (clicking, thumping, grinding, squealing, and so forth) from an HP all-in-one can be caused by a problem with the ink carriage or the scanner. Solution Follow the steps below in the order presented to determine the source and resolution for the noise. Step one: Checking the scanner This step applies only to products equipped with a flatbed scanner.
  1. Open the scanner cover.
  2. With the lid open, press the Start Copy button to make a copy. The scanner mechanism should move down the glass.
  3. If the scanner mechanism does not move and noise is present, contact HP. If the scanner mechanism moves without noise, continue with Step two below.
Step two: Checking for paper feed problems and carriage blocks Click here (buu03110) (in English) for more information on paper or carriage jams. Step three: Service the product If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product. So it sounds like it needs to be serviced which could get expensive. I've looked all over the web for you & Keep finding the same answer. Sorry I can't come up with a better solution for you.
