HP 1610 printer photo paper jams

Hi I have an HP 1610 printer that fails to print on photo paper (jams), normal paper still prints fine.
The paper feeds in up to the rollers, sometimes a jam is reported, others it begins printing without feeding the paper making a mess inside the printer.
I've tried 2 different brands of photo paper, photos print ok on plain paper. the printer settings are set of photo paper.

    Solution 1 does not appear to have looked at the problem stated, just advises how to install the printer.

    The actual problem is that he printer is very slightly damaging the edge of the paper as it first begins to feed it, this causes it to get stuck at the rollers when trying to print. The damage is minor but is visible and can be felt by running a finger along the leading edge that went into the printer.

    I've not been able to find what exactly causes the damage, there is no debris etc. in the way.

    The problem can be worked around by lifting the lid when the print starts, slightly lifting the roller where the damage is and closing the lid. Printing resumes and completes successfully.

Paper jams with photo paper only hp1610 all in one. will print photo on regular paper any size.machine also makes a "grinding rotating" noise


Hi there,

Paper can jam inside the printer for a number of reasons.
  • Open the cover to the printer and look inside to see if there are any pieces of paper or debris that may be blocking the print path.
  • Be sure to unplug the printer before touching anything internal to avoid electric shock. If there is something blocking the print path, remove it, close the printer, and try printing again.
  • You can also check inside the printer to see if any components have come loose.

HP 1610 printer


It occurred to me when I was reading your post that photo paper has printing and non-printing sides. If the paper is loaded upside down, it's printing on the non-print side, which would result in what you're seeing. It's just a hunch, but you might want to consider it.

HP.com has a web page that will walk you through the process of checking on this and other potential problems.

Checking image quality problems

Hope this helps. Good luck.
