This printer is just over a year old and it has no power. I've tested the power adapter and it is good. I would like to get instructions on how to take it apart so I can try replacing the power supply. Any ideals would be helpful. I hate to just throw the printer away. I've never even had to replace the ink cartridges.

Re: HP 2610 has no power

> u said that there is no problem with the adapter, that means the light is lit on the adapter. so there should not be any problem from the wall socket till the adapter.

if nothing happens you can try changing the adapter. because the problem may be on the part which lies from the adapter to the printer. if that is also not working, you may have to service the unit.

I am afraid that Dennis (Writing below) is correct, When you have smearing it is a print head problem and they need to be replaced, If you have had this printer for many years (HP GOOOD Printer) you should check prices on a new machine, the reason for that is that HP has discontinued support on many machines as of 1 Jan 2013, If you can find a print head for your system it may be half the price of a new machine, Also; if one print head is going it may not be long before you see the same problem on the one or more color print head. It is probably not what you were hoping to hear but right now HP has several really good systems on sale,
You can use a degreasing spray or methyl alcohol to clean up the residual ink. Use a brush to clean and wipe and BLOW using a hair dryer to fully dry up the residue.
Make sure that there is no dirt at the terminals, clean and set with original cartridges from HP.
Now if there is errors then you must disconnect printer, uninstall then install the driver, connect printer when prompted and print a test page.

Make sure power adapter is plugged into a power outlet that you know works. Then try and power drain the printer by unplugging the power cable and letting it sit for a bit and pressing the power button a few times. Then plug the power back in and see if it power up. If not, then the power adapter itself or the internet power on the printer might be faulty.
By self-test, I assume you are doing that manually on the printer. drivers downloaded/installed? right click on my computer, left click on properties, click on hardware, and then click on device manager. is there a yellow question mark by print drivers? If so, then need to load them from the internet or from your installation disk.
