Question about HP OfficeJet 7410 All-In-One InkJet Printer
First the computer displayed an error on the camra card. Easter and had a full camera card. I took it out several times and the last time I accidentely put it in the wrong slot, it fell into the printer.We finally found it in the bottem of printer, while trying to recover it my son broke the encoder strip on the end. We taped it but we got carriage jam. We then went to computer and followed instruction to hold down the # and 3 key. We did that now when the printer comes on it only stays for a few seconds. The carriage doesn't move and smoke comes out from behind it. We took it to a repair place, they wanted $80.00 to send it somewhere and more if they could or couldn't fix it. Several hundred dollars. My husband bought a new hp 1780. How can I do a home repair on the 7410? I found strip encoders for it on the internet. What is behind the carriage that would make it smoke. I also noticd a small square hole in the encoder, on the right side where the carriage rests when not in use. My email is [email protected] Is there a repair manuel for these. It isn't very old and we paid around $500.00 for it.
Not sure about the smoking thing...to replace the encoder strip will require fairly extensive disassembly. There are no repair manuals available for any of HP's Inkjet machines because all repairs or replacements are depot repairs (u send them in). We service all of their machines. We have an extensive used part inventory where we are able to fix most all of their inkjet line. If you were to bring this machine in to our shop, the repair would cost you $65 if its only replacing the encoder strip.
