HP 1610 - Skipping Lines when printing w/carriage return

Greetings...I hope someone can help me.

I had a paper jam on my HP 1610 and my son pulled the paper out (from the front) - I know it was the wrong way to do it - but...here is my problem.

Since the jam...whenever I print a word document, email or anything with a carriage return - the printing skips lines, half prints lines etc... It works fine with PDF, Excel and Photo printing.

    When I installed a new cartridge, it began skipping or half printing lines as well

You are lucky you can print ANYTHING! My unit has NEVER worked (3 years) due to a hardware defect of HP. I downloaded patches, cleaned/replaced cartridges, etc.
Spoke to HP last nite-Was told printer was junk-they don't carry it or any parts to fix it anymore!! I was told to replace it!

HP PSC 1610 printer gives error message: Carriage Jam, clear carriage. I open the door and there isn't a Jam. I tried the solution (clean cartridge, turn off/on couldn't reset) posted by nanotech 9 Aug...


If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your printer with no tasks in progress, then check for any piece of paper stuck in the carriage. Remove the paper carefully. If the paper tears, part of it might remain inside the paper path and damage the product.

Follow the steps for fix HP Printer Carriage Jam

  • Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.
  • Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side.
  • Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path.
  • Reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer.

Print head


The most likely cause is that when you cleared the paper jam, you did something to physically misalign the print carriage. The closest thing HP has on its web site that addresses this issue is the following:

Carriage Stall Solution

See if some of the steps on this page helps. Good luck.

Paper jammed and I done a NO NO.....I pulled the paper out the front. Can I fix it ?


I am in the same situation - had carriage is blocked first but seem to have resolved that issue - now I have "out of paper" - did all the hp.com/support suggestions - still can't get a print - did notice on another site a message that HP knows there is a flaw in this printer and they suggest using the roller cleaning kit - I don't see how that will help.

Paper jams


Had this problem, too with HP PSC 1610 AIO, paper would pull in part way and stop, then display would indicate: Paper Jam, Clear Jam and Press OK, but there was no paper in the path at all. Found in HP forums that possibly the problem was a broken off piece that may be called the "x-bias" lever which is on a little spring inside the printer just to the left of the carriage bay on the right side of the device. There are two photos of "broken" and "not broken" at this forum site:
http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/bizsupport/questionanswer.do?threadId=1085918
Since HP does not sell the little part to repair it, I phoned HP and got a good "trade-in, trade-up" price for a better device. Hope this helps someone else find the answer to the constant paper jam issue, as I always appreciate the FixYa forum help from everyone else here, too.
