When I worked at staples. I sold theses Units and that actually was a common problem. We had a number of returns of that unit with that exact problem. What happens is that a small plastic piece inside breaks off and the gears no longer work properly. The firmware on the machine then thinks the cartridges are not aligned. If the unit is out of warranty then I would suggest buying a new printer. HP is really good when it comes to ink yield. and it is usually a decent product. However like any products off an assembly line, there are lemons. There made to break down eventually anyway, Company's wouldn't make money if they lasted forever.

Carrage jam



1) Open door so print heads move to the center
2) Unplug the unit. (Don't turn off, just unplug!)
3) Open back door
4) Look inside the back left side for a small black gear (About the size of a quarter)
5) Spin the gear with a screw driver (I'm pretty sure I spun it clockwise). Spin it and watch the inside of the printer where the print heads park. You should see a tray move out that has four rubber blue rectangles on it on the right side of the unit (this is where the print heads park when the unit is not printing).
6) Keep spinning the gear until the plate moves all the way forward.
7) Grab the plate and try moving it forward more.
8) Put the back on and close the top.
9) Turn the unit back on.
10) Open the top again
11) Unplug the unit again. (Don't turn off, just unplug!)
12) Grab the tray, from step 5, and slide it all the way forward and all the way back multiple times.
13) Make sure that the print heads slide left to right smoothly
14) Remove ink cart's and clean the contacts with bottled water and a q-tip. LET DRY BEFORE REINSTALLING!!!
15) Remove print heads and clean contacts with bottled water and q-tip. LET DRY BEFORE REINSTALLING!!!
16) Clean the inside of the printer with a soft dry cloth, use a slightly damp, with bottled water, lint free cloth (Glasses cleaning cloth works well) and wipe off the rollers in the front and back of the unit. See HP's cruddy support site for details on this step.
17) Hold down #7 (reprimes the printheads with ink) and plug in the unit

Says that we have a paper jam not true Carriage moves to left side and stays there ink leaking out on right side


Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.
Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage. Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head. Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now If that does not work then follow the next step.
Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

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 won't print color only black and white


Sounds like the print head on the color side is ether plugged on its plunger or the print head failed totally the real way to do any testing is get yourself a printer cleaning kit and follow the direction on that if that does not shore it up replace the plunger and or printhead around $45-50 bucks respectivly.

Does not print red, print heads do not return to left parked area


The printhead not moving to the left I think I can solve. Open the top cover, the yellow light on the paper feed button wil come on solid, press and HOLD this button until you hear the print head assembly make some noises (about 10 to 20 seconds) then release the button and then the printheads will move and park on the left so you can remove the printhesd(s)
