HP 7410 Scanner mirror dirty

I have had some work around the house and quite a bit dust. It seems that the scanner mirror is pretty dirty. Can't reach it, don't know exactly how to disassemble the unit.
Any hints or diagrams on taking this thing apart to clean the offending parts?

Much appreciated

Magenta cartridge not working despite being full

This happens due to Laser sCANNER Contamination.

Light Output that typically starts fading along the outside edges of the media. The first noticable color would be Magenta.

Dusty Environments can lead to Laser Scanner Contamination. The dust layer on the mirrors prevents proper transmission of the laser output in the imaging system leading to faded colors on the printed page. The initial stages of this failure typically occur in the magenta or yellow color planes as faded or light color. Often the left side is more faded than the middle.

You may need to contact the nearest Authorized Service Tech and get teh Laser Scanner replaced with the new released service part that has a mirror in a location where the dust ideally cannot reach eazily.

Also, please ensure that the printer is relocated from the current location to a more dust free zone.

Magenta is not printing well, very light.

I have seen lots of printers with this problem. the issue is caused by a build up of dust on the magenta scanner mirror. cleaning the mirrors in the scanner unit is what you need to do. the scanner unit is accessed from the back of the printer. it is a bit of a strip down to remove the scanner unit and clean the mirrors , but it will fix this fault.

Magenta won't print

It's normally caused by dirty scanner mirrors, the machine will need to be dissembled, the laser scanner unit removed, taken apart and the mirrors cleaned. Unfortunately it is quite fiddly getting the scanner unit out, but this is a very common problem for the HP colour laserjet 2600's

Faint printing

Indeed, the problem here is dust building up on the scanner mirrors. The mirrors are hidden deep inside the printer, but if you have an hour to kill, you can disassemble the printer, clean them off carefully, and solve the problem. See the very detailed PDF disassembly guide at . Solved all my problems.

Hp officejet 7410 fax failure

Had the same problem as everyone else here - would copy fine but faxing or scanning resulted in the "whizzzzzz" sound (with or without the sheet feeder) and a mandatory reboot.
I followed the suggestion of moving the scanner head to a different part of the drive belt and it works fine now (at least until that part of the belt wears down!). Here was the procedure - it took about 10 minutes.
  1. Remove all T8 screws from the top of the scanner bed - there are two hidden on the left side under the removable flap and two more hidden behind the front control panel cover, which just snaps off.
  2. There is a bundle of wires that prevents the entire top from lifting completely off, so lift it high enough to clear the plastic parts, then rotate it 180 degrees around and set it on something to support it.
  3. Lift the scanner head until it comes off the guide rod and disengages from the drive belt.
  4. Move the scanner head to the other end of the bed and reingage it onto the belt and guide rod - this is a little tricky to get the belt to pop back into the scanner head, but I got it to go by holding the belt firmly on either side of the head and squeezing both together.
  5. Replace top and all screws, pop control panel cover back into place.
  6. Rejoice in saving yourself lots of $$ and preventing more junk from entering the landfill!

Coppier Problem

The trouble is that the scanner assembly can't find its "home" station. Here is the most common solution. There is a reflective white stipe under the scanner glass that the scanner looks for. If the stripe is dirty, or if the scanner mirrors are dirty, the scanner won't sense its location, and cause a "scanner error". A qualified technician should be able to clean the assembly. The other option is to replace the scanner assembly. I hope this helps.
