HP PSC 1610 Won't Turn On

I printed something out, it worked fine, picked the paper up off the tray and noticed that an error message was flashing on the LCD. I turned off the printer for a few minutes and the powered it back on. The message re-appeared so I turned off the printer again, and then unplugged it from the power source. I waited about five minutes and then plugged the printer back in and turned the power back on, now the LCD will light up and say "Initializing" and then a bar begins to move across the LCD just as it used to but at the same point every time, it stops and the printer powers down on its own. If I press the power button again, nothing happens. But if I unplug it again and then replug it in and turn in back on the LCD will light up again...I don't know what to sounds like the printer is getting power, but it will not print nor does the computer recognize it as attached. This printer is 13 months old (so just out of warranty) and I have no idea what to do...PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN!!!!

HP PSC 1610 printer gives error message: Carriage Jam, clear carriage. I open the door and there isn't a Jam. I tried the solution (clean cartridge, turn off/on couldn't reset) posted by nanotech 9 Aug...

If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your printer with no tasks in progress, then check for any piece of paper stuck in the carriage. Remove the paper carefully. If the paper tears, part of it might remain inside the paper path and damage the product.

Follow the steps for fix HP Printer Carriage Jam

  • Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.
  • Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side.
  • Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path.
  • Reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer.

My HP psc1315 will not turn on. Some of the


To be able to understand the problem, you should give extra info about the lights.
Please find the information below about the status lights that provide information about error conditions of your printer. But first you need to install the driver for your operating system. The drivers are necessary to print documents and scan images. These drivers must be installed to use the print and scan features.

If the On light, Check Print Cartridge light, Check Paper light, and Start Copy, Black and Start Copy, Color lights are all flashing, do the following:

1 Verify that the front-panel overlay is attached to the HP PSC.
2 Turn your HP PSC off and on by disconnecting the power cord and reconnecting.

Problem 1: “ON” light is on, “check paper” light is blinking and “check print cartridge light” is off .

Explanation 1: The paper tray is empty, the HP psc has a paper jam, or the paper size setting and paper in paper tray are not the same.

Solution 1:
• Load paper, or remove thepaper jam.
• Change paper in paper tray to correct size.
• Change paper size on the computer software.
Then press On/ Resume to continue.

HP PSC 1610 - Keep getting paper jam error with no paper jam.

Hi there ok Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
