Question about HP PSC 1610 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My printer just wouldn't turn on

Here's the deal... My printer worked well at home on a different computer a few days ago, but now- it just stopped. The thing is that i can't even install the software for it, but in the middle it asks you to check the connections to electricity and usb and make sure that it's turned on. So i tried to turn it on and it just wouldn't. everything is connected properly and plugged in and it still doesn't work. There seems to be a problem with electrical connections inside, because my computer doesn't identify the printer as a new hardware when i tried to plug it in via usb. I tried reconnecting cables several times as i thought i might have missed something or plugged sonething in too light. But-as I said-nothing works. Any ideas, please?

Re: my printer just wouldn't turn on

Good troubleshooting. Disconnect your printer from the PC and try the following:
Go to "Control Panel" -> "System" and click "Device/Hardware Manager". Check that "Show Hidden Devices" is checked inside "Options" and delete the USB ports it has listed, restart windows to have it re-install them and connect your printer. does it show any life signs?

I keep getting this message from my computer when I turn on my Canon MP160 printer: Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43). It was working perfectly a few days ago then...

Code 43 is the death code - the unit that is generating it has stopped responding to the commands from the pc, it's dead and nothing will bring it back to life.
Nothing left to do but buying a new printer.

Printer doesn't connect to computer (or computer doesn't connect)

Unplug the printer from the wall so it can reset itself.
That should do the trick

Cancelling/stopping a printing job

Open the Control Panel from either the Start menu or by opening 'My Computer.' Find your Printers and Faxes folder and open that.  Double-click on the icon of the X2500; if more than one, choose the one with a check mark and double click on that icon. This will open a 'job list' showing those which were not completed for some reason, click on it (them) and delete it from the list.

Service error 5200.

The 5200 series error indicates an unrecoverable hardware error. Canon does not have any specific recommendations or further information to advise on this other than to unplug the printer for thirty seconds then plug back in and power on. If the error still remains unresolved, it will likely be more cost effective to replace versus service.

Both power & feed lights flash

Information gathered: Basically the printer carrier has stalled.
Lexmark documentation states that you should turn off your printer and wait a few seconds and turn the printer back on.
Restarting the spooler will sometimes do the trick as well.
Go to start, run
type: <cmd> without <>
Command prompt will open up.
Type: net stop spooler
The spooler will say it stopped successfully.
Type net start spooler
The spooler will say it started successfully.
Hope this helps!
