Prints jibberish


Hi Anna,

This is because of corrupted Printer Drivers. You have to uninstall and reinstall your Printer Drivers. Either from the Printer disk or from www.hp.com website.

Check to make sure if all files are printing symbols or if it's just from one program. For example. If you print emails, Microsoft Word documents, and Internet articles, do they all come out as symbols?
If they all do, then I suggest re-installing the printer's device drivers and doing a complete power cycle, which means completely unplugging the printer and leaving it off for two minutes.
If it's just one program, you can re-install that one program. So if it's Microsoft Word that is giving you the bad printouts, re-install Microsoft Word.

If you are using Microsoft word, better you can insert symbols, goto insert then click on symbols from there you can select your choice of symbols. if you don't want to try Microsoft word, then press Function Key.

HP pcs 1610 won't print words. Prints symbols instead.


Try creating the document on another program. If that does not work try to find software from another site HP should have all the software and updates on a current download file. You should not have interference with the download, if so there may be a quirk in your computer somewhere.

Delete the printer icon. Restart your PC. Reinstall the printer driver. If that doesn't work, your printer cable may be faulty.
