How to Disassemble HP Officejet 6110 for cleaning

I have the same "grinding" problem with a print head that keeps moving back and forth and not working that other people on here describe. Every solution talks about cleaning the glass, however, they don't tell you how to actually lift the top frame off to GET TO the glass. I'm not talking about the little strip of glass on the left, I'm talking about the Big Enchilada, giant piece of glass that covers the top. I've gotten as far as undoing all the screws, taking the left strip of glass off and the front button panel completely off. It LOOKS like the plastic frame around the glass should lift right up -- except that IT DOESN'T. I am at my wits' end...would someone please instruct me from here???

    I already did it on my own, thanks. I asked for a solution, not for someone to send a belitting response.

    I need to clean the other side of the scanner glass, and I am at this same point---I have unscrewed the screws from the scanner bed, taken the front control panel off, and now I can't figure out how to make the whole thing let go when I lift it!

    I did a search for the "service manual," but came up with nothing. Any advice?

I'd be remiss in suggesting that this is that simple. The service manual shows a seven step process for removing that glass. You sure you want to mess with that?

In Hp officejet 6110, when i am printing then it come dark and lining is coming plus to print its take long time. need soluation.

Your printer head must be dirty and needs to be cleaned. Try going to your printer application and look for the option for maintenance. If you cant find it, you can go to control panel, printers and faxes, then double click on your printer model. It should take you to your printers menu, just look for the option to clean it. Print a test page after cleaning. If you still see lines, just repeatedly do the cleaning until you no longer see the lines. If it still doesn't work, you can contact HP.

Printer is not printing anything at or color. Cartridges travel back and forth and paper is pulled into the printer just like it is going to print. But, the paper comes back out completely...

Make sure the sealing tape is completely removed from the print heads (the silver part on the bottom of the cartridge). Then press the print head against a paper towel to get the ink flowing. If that doesn't work, try cleaning the cartridge electrical contacts in the printer and on the cartridge with isopropyl alcohol followed by water.

My HP 66110 will not start up. There is a grateing sound when on button is pressed, there is no paper jamed in system.

Try unplugging the printer and opening the door where the printing heads are, and make the sure belt that moves the print carriage back and forth is not broken or damaged. Pull the belt so that the print carriage is moved to a different position than where it usually parks, and that may unjam or reset the mechanism. The grinding sound might be coming from the scanning mechanism, or the scanning sheet feeder. Try manually turning the wheels for the feeder and make sure they turn.

The printer is making a gear clicking sound.

I had exactly the same problem with my OfficeJet 6110 as reported above (i.e. the scan head not knowing where the end-stop is). This is how to fix it (this method worked for me) 1) Lift up the scanner/copier hinged lid. Around the edge of the scan glass are 4 Torx screws. Undo all four screws. 2) Carefully prise the control panel faceplate off. The buttons underneath are on a single panel. Slide this to the left and lift off. 3) Jiggle the lid of the scanner to get it off the main body of the printer. 4) Locate the scan engine motor (top right corner) and remove the two motor retaining screws (one on the left of the motor, the other on the right). 5) Lift out the entire mechanism (rod, drive belt, scan head) and turn over. 6) Thoroughly clean all glass and mirrored areas of the scan head. Also clean the scan lamp on the top of the scan head. Clean the tray inside the scanner (where the scan head travels back and forth). Also clean the inside and outside of the scanner glass pane itself. 7) Refit all parts, using the technique described above, in reverse order. 8) Switch on printer. It should now work OK. Hope this helps, guys.

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.

Hp officejet 6110 all-in-one won't print despite new cartridges

make sure that the housing that holds the cartridges are clean at the contacts, this can be done with the machine turned off and unplugged, clean the contacts with warm water and a damp cotton bud not wet and then dry it with a paper towel.

make sure everything is dry before turning the printer back on, if this doesnt work then it needs a service.
