Definitely you have a problem with the printer.
That will not prevent you from sending faxes out, but did you try to make a copy?

If the machine sat idle for some time, the ink in the jets would have dried, but this will not generate any error messages.

There are cleaning kits available, and they usually work.

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)

The printer makes a noise that sounds like a machine gun as soon as it starts to print, but just at that time and each time it prints. The noise does not continue, but stops once the printer starts...


It sounds like the cleaning sled is binding. Likely due to ink sludge build up in the waste station. Look into the printer, on the right side, where the cartridge rest when not in use. If this area looks very inky your printer may need servicing.

Hp 6200 makes machine gun sound before printing, when the print carriage goes all the way to the right is when i hear the machine gun sound, it still prints fine.


Hi,

This is quite normal with this series of printers. Happens on my 6310. It "machine guns" only occassionally (once a month), and then the gunning noise slows down slowly, then the print starts. Might be shaking the head to clear ink rigorously or something.

Have an eson stylus cx9400F


Every time you do a nozzle clean routine in an inkjet printer, like the Epson CX9400Fax, ink is wasted. When it is $20.00 for a quarter ounce, that is wasteful to your wallet too. The nozzle head cleaning routine flushes your ink from the cartridge through a tube to the nozzle, where it mostens the nearly microscopic holes and flushes hardened ink residue away.

The wasted ink from machines often goes through a rubber gasket or wiper, and into a large, thick felt pad, maybe an inch thick, hidden deep inside, near the bottom of the printer, where it eventually soaks in and dries. In some machines, this happens every time you start the printer, so it makes sense to keep it plugged in. Each cartridge uses some ink, even if you only use it for black and white, so you pay a lot for something you don't even use.

Unfortunately, HP and Epson abuse the trust that users put in them. Word is that HP makes more money on cartridges than it does in printers and plotters. This leads to poor printer design that makes it impossible to refill cartridges, get 3rd party cartridges, or use a printer for black and white and not waste color ink.
