Question about HP Photosmart 2610 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have an ogoing problem with printer "chopping off" upper area of type when prineing letters. Letters are unusable making priner worthless.
I have performed cleaning process and alignment process numerous times, Bought new cartridge ...Nothing has changed....
It sounds like your cartridge is bad. You should try replacing them again...you might have gotten a bad one.
Or try this:
Get the printer to move the carriage away from the side where it normally rests. Look inside there, and beneath the rest area, sometimes there is a little rubber stamp that presses up against the cartridges. It usually is filled with dry ink. Take a wet paper tower (probably several of them) and try to get as much ink as you can up. Also, there is sometimes a little rubber wiper that cleans the printhead as it passes by. Make sure this is clean also.
Now take the cartridges out. Get another clean paper towel, sopping with water. Press the nozzels down against it, but don't wipe. Just dab them, until you're getting some solid lines of ink on the towel.
Then look for the pattern of copper colored dots on the cartridge. Clean this with alcohol, and then look inside the printer where these dots (contacts) would line up inside the carriage. There will be a smilar pattern of dimples. Clean these with alcohol, and let it dry.
If possible, you might want to try to fit a towel damp with water beneath the print carriage (where the paper runs through). This collects a lot of ink sometimes. Be careful not to force anything.
Finally, put it all back together and try your print.
