Question about HP PSC 1210 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Just got a psc 1210 at a garage sale. on turning on the print hits hard at both ends. A quick look revealed a long thin strip of clear plastic with a small small slot at each each but one has broken I suspect it controls the travel of the print head. My.problem is where it fits and how it is attached I have found a small metal part which appears to be a tension spring.

My daughter pulled this long plastic strip out HP PSC 1210


Sounds like it is the guide strip that pushes/pulls the print carriage back and forth?


Sorry but it is not a repair easily carried out at home, if at all. If in one piece and not broken it might be re-introduced but the bottom line is you will most likely have to purchase new? Sorry. it might cost just as much if taken to a repairs?

I have a hp psc 1517 and there is a thin strip of plastic behind the ink cartridges, my daughter pulled it out can it be put back in and if so how


Sounds like you are refering to the encoder strip. It is a thin clear piece of plastic with little black lines all the way accross the length of it. The printer has a sensor on it that reads these lines so that the carriage assembly knows where it is inside the machine. It is usually spring loaded on one end of it. Both ends of the encoder strip have a notch on it. One side of the encoder strip hooks onto a fixed mount through one of the notches, the other side hooks onto a spring loaded mount. If your daughter didn't pull it all the way out of the machine it is a bit easier to reinstall because all you need is something skiny and long like a pair of needle nose pliers to reattatch it to both of the mounts. If it is all the way out the strip needs to be threaded back through the sensor on the back of the carriage assembly(the thing you intall the ink cartridges into). Hope that helps a bit. It is a simple problem for a tech to fix but could be more difficult if you are trying to do this without removing any of the covers.

Plastic thin strip about 15" long has came off my HP1410


That sounds like the belt that moves the printer cartridge carriage back and forth. Unfortunately, you will most likely have to purchase a new printer, because repairs for that will be prohibitively expensive.

This is what my printer did when it kicked of the 14" plastic strip inside the printer(see posts referring to strip). Look inside for a loose, quarter inch wide and 14" long plastic strip with slots on the end. Let me know if you solve this.

A THIN plastic strip about 1/4 X 16 INCHES LONG HAS BECOME SEPRATED FROM MY X4270 PLEASE ADVISE HOW TO FIX


Hi,

This clear plastic strip is responsible for telling the print head where it is horizontally. Pls note that it has black stripes almost like bar codes. Both ends of this encoder strip normally would have holes for hooking up to lock tabs on both ends. What is important is that this strip is embedded in a slot at the back of the print head that reads the bar codes/locations.

Problem with HP PSC 1210 printer


SOunds like your linear encoider is dirty.

If you look back along the rail that the carriage moves back and forth on, you should see a thin plastc strip...almost clear...going accross. You have to make sure that's clean. If you clean it real well with a lint-free cloth, and it still doesn't work, it needs to be replaced. They're probably not available and you might need a new machine.

HP F370 PSC


One possibility is. look toward the back of the printer, there is a strip of clear plastic, about a quarter inch wide and clear. It runs the length of the print head area. That contains the stop strip. That strip or the sensor on the print head itself may be dirty and not sensing the strip, therefor not knowing when to stop.
