Question about HP Photosmart 2610 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

HP 2610 has no power

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.

    My 2610 is a few years old - using with XP. Tested the power supply and read 31 volts with a volt meter. But yet the printer is totaly dead.

try this...

> connect the power chord directly to the wall socket.
> try with different wall socket.
> 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.
> check the connection from the adapter to the printer
> make sure that it is securely plugged in to the printer as well as to 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.

thanks and regards

Cigar (accessory) port will not provide power via a USB adapter.

Have you tried the adapter in another car? It could be that the ground post is reversed in your adapter and the phone is safeguarding the power flow. A diode installed backwards in the adapter would prevent current flow.

I have a 10 year old pc and a 2 year old Lexmark x3650 printer. Could I set up a wifi connection?

Hello, you'll need to be running at least XP, and have all the latest service packs, then buy yourself a wireless lan card and install it into your pc, install the drivers for it too. Then Google for a solution to connecting the pc by wifi to the printer as it can get very complicated. You'll need lots of patience too! p.s. I'm assuming your printer is wifi capable...if not, you have buy one that is...I've never seen a wifi adapter for a printer. Nicam49

Is the AC Power adapter the original adapter of the laptop? If it is, try to drain the battery and charge it for 8-12 hours without using or opening the laptop just charge it. After charging, remove the power adapter as you open your laptop. Make this way a habbit of using and charging your laptop to make the charging and battery life last long.

Does this require software?

You do not require any Princeton software. I have the same display. What I needed was the correct driver for my system, and the correct software installed to support my video card (nVidia 8800GT).

My display can handle up to 1280x1024 resolution at 32 bit color, and does it very well. I run it at 1024x768, 32 bit color, and 96 dpi. Not bad for a 12 year old display! I had a power supply (AC adapter) go out a while back.

I am now using a power supply from an old HP printer that I got rid of. The plugs are the same, and the "Power Output" rating are almost identical (only very slightly different). My display is still kicking. I'm a computer graphic artist and a photographer. The work I've turned out the past few years with this display is impressive.

Hope that helps.

I have a Dell latitude 78 and both the battery and the power cord are not powering it on. What do I do/

Hi Dominique,

Try removing the battery, then plug in the power cord and press the power button. If it works, attach the battery while it's powered on, and you should be good to go. If not, contact Dell for warranty service if it's less than 1 year old. If it's out of warranty, get someone to test the adapter with a voltage meter to ensure it is actually supplying power to the laptop or go to a store that sells universal laptop power adapters and test it with one (with the battery removed). If still no good, the laptop may be dead. Let me know what happens and I may be able to help further.

Hope this helps!

Do you see any Light Blinking ?

If no, It sounds like Faulty Cord or might be Fault Power Supply Unit ( Adapter/Switch/Fuse ).Also, try removing the print head before replacing the power supply. Many times the print head fails and printer won't power up. If it powers up with the print head removed, you're good to go with a new print head.

The next suspect would be PCB. If that is at fault, keeping in mind the Age of Printer, better to Purchase a New One as it does not make any sense to pay more for repair than Investing in new one.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
