Question about HP PSC 1610v All-in-One Printer

1 Answer

Carriage jam Everytime I hit print, the printer carraige goes back and forth several times making a horrible noise. It sounds like it is going to blow up or something. Then the printer screen says it has a carriage jam. I lift the lid and shut it, and it prints. Then when it is done printing it still says it has a carriage jam. I have looked to make sure there is nothing in the way of the carriage and I can't find anything. Can anyone make a suggestion? It would be very appreciated. Laura Allen

    Ditto for me! We're dying to have this problem resolved. I've done everything short of dismantling the entire printer.

Put in new print head and carraige, (done by a professional) who refuses to come back out and fix......but the carriage will not go all the way to the end on the inital start-up it hits the back of the...


It looks like the print head was incorrectly installed and the timing is out of sync which would explain why the carriage is banging the back of the print head, you need somebody that knows how to set it up correctly because this can be somewhat tricky to service.

Will not find home position after switching on makes clicking noise screen 's got egg timmer showing after afew minutes it stops clicking but remains with egg timmer showing help?


The carraige is moved by a toothed rubber belt and plastic gears. Unplug the machine, open the front cover, and manually relocate the print carraige to the far right. Close the cover and plug machine back in. Hope this helps.

Make grinding noise


If you will notice that there is a transparent film that the printhead goes through to be able to print. That transpatent film is actually coded to be able to tell the print head in which direction and when to print characters. It is dirty and you need to take like a q-tip with isopropyl alcohol to clean it so it knows where to print and does not go back and forth to find a position to print. God bless you.

Canon PIXMA 530 grinds away


I had a persistant grinding noise about 30 seconds after the printer finished printing. It's been going on about 2 months. I did one thing which seemed to work. So try opening the cover on the back of the machine by lifting upward on the gray lever in the middle of the back of the machine. Leave this cover open during and after printing. The grinding noise went away.

Noisy hp7450 printer


There's a rubber part in the printer on the right inside the printer underneath the print carriage that slides back and forth. If this has moved it will foul the print head. I moved mine back into the right place and the print head now moves freely.

Hope this helps,

Cheers,

Paul.

This problem always hits after a power interruption. On another site I read the solution is to open the back and roll or move the paper wheels back and forth a few times. This worked for me.

Grinding Noise and no printing


grinding is NOT cool...i'd say that you have a mechanism issue with this printer. How long have you know this printer?
