HP 2510 printer in "wait" mode indefinitely

I have an HP PSC 2510 All in one printer that I've owned about 3 years. Currently when you power it on it makes a crazy repeated noise like something is grinding internally for about 2-3 minutes. Then that will stop and the printer will display an hourglass "wait" picture and stay in that mode indefinitely. Plugging in the USB cable to a PC or laptop does nothing, it just stays in that mode. Tried turning it on and off, same thing happens. I'm ready to throw it out the window. Any advice?

It sounds to me like the printer needs repaired/replaced as the gears which drive the printer cartridges' belt are no longer aligning correctly. At today's prices, I strongly suggest just replacing the printer as you can get a new one pretty cheap now. Good luck!

Clean the rod that the light bar travels back and forth on then "lightly" lubricate it by wiping it with a good grade oil like 3in one or something similar. Obviously you will have to remove the top cover and glass but it's not that difficult.

My hp psc 2510 photosmart doesnt stop prnting. i have turned off power few times but as soon as it turns on start printing constantly.


This isn't the printer. You have to stop the print jobs from your computer. On the lower right of your computer screen there should be some icons, one of them will be a printer. Right click and select open, then you will be able to see what it is trying to print. Cancel the print jobs and your problem is solved.

Hp 2510 wireless printer function is disabled. I


Yes there is a hp psc 2510 photosmart all-in-one.
I have had one for years--although it is not functioning properly now.
In answer to your question, though, go to the hp.com website and to america then to support/driver site. enter hp psc 2510 photosmart all-in-one in the search section and go to downloads. download the entire software. this takes a lot of time--even more if you do not have dsl.
follow the instructions. also, download the manual if you do not have one.

Using multiple HP printer models with same Windows XP laptop


I doubt there is a universal driver , however you could connect directly to your pc or via a router and share it over your home /business network, and access it them that way
