Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

I have an HP printer scanner 1310 series. Have trouble with printing. It will run about 3 blank pages through before it will print. Then it will run a page part way through so have to open back to get it...


Hi Audrey-

There are many things that will effect how your printer handles paper. The most overlooked being the size of the document or image to be printed. If the image or text bleeds over the edges (left, right, top, bottom) of the document, several sheets can be ejected before the "visible" printing takes place. Often those first few pages look blank, but actually are the outer edges of your picture or text. If you are printing a large picture or large text document, this may be your situation. Try printing a document with just a few words on it (like a small email) as a test.

The second most common culprit is dusty, dirty feed rollers in the printer. Consult your HP 1310 series manual for instructions on cleaning the feed rollers, or consult this general cleaning article on HP.com. HP PSC 1310 All-in-One Printer series cleaning

The type of paper can also effect how many sheets are pulled into the rollers. Is the paper new?, Thick?, Very thin?, or is it the same ol' printer paper you've always used? Either way, remove the stack of paper from the feed tray, "fluff" it by fanning it (like flipping through a book very quickly, or the way Superman counts a stack of money!) and replace. Print a test page.

Let me know if this helps!

Blank paper no IMAGE or TEXT


In case anyone else runs across this, the problem is caused by a blown fuse on the main board. It is labeled F1 and it is near the 3 tall blue capacitors. If you have a meter you can check across it,if it reads anything more than a couple of ohms it is bad. This is a fast acting 2.5A fuse. You can get a fuse and fuse holder at on line or at your local Radio Shack or similar store. I know the 230 is the European/Asian version so I don't know if you have something like a Radio Shack. The R220 is the US version and it is identical.

You can jump it out but this is not recommended. If the fuse is not there, you could cause more expensive problems later.

Stripes on Images only - Text OK


Perhaps the CMY color heads need alignment. If you have not already done so, run a head alignment from the driver maintenance section. It will print out a page containing several lines and text, and request you select the closest-aligned images. After this is done, do another image print to check for improvements.
Normally, the printer uses the black cartridge for text and the CMY inks for images (even for black on photo and specialty paper). So when you are printing normal text pages on plain paper, only the black ink is used. A good check for this would be to print a normal text page, but select photo paper in the driver to trick the printer into using the CMY inks to make a substitute black text page. If this looks ok, then you are having issues other than cartridge alignment.

Bad print with repeated text on fax or copies


Make a copy and shut the power off or open a door when the paper is 1/2 way into the machine. You are just basically going to have to try to time it. When you hear paper being fed into your machine (the blank paper from the tray) count about 3-5 seconds and then open a door on the machine or shut the power off. IF you have timed it correctly, the paper should be 1/4 - 1/2 way through the machine. Remove the jammed paper **** But be careful..... The toner is NOT FUSED at this point so it will rub off if you brush it up against your clothes or hands. If the image is doubled at this point.. then its the drum unit. If the image is good at this point, then it is probably your fuser.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.
Mac =)
