Question about HP Officejet 5610 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Calibration strip location

I had to pull my HP Officejet 5610 apart and a little white strip came out. It is white plastic, 9" long, 1/2"wide, 0.035" thick. It has a little section sticking out labeled:
PLATE-CALIBRATION, plus the identifiers:
JB61-00305A >HIPS< #2-3
When I put the 5610 back together I didn't know where this strip went and left it out. Now the 5610 doesn't work right and I need to know where the strip goes. If you have a 5610 to look at maybe you can tell me or take a digital picture and email it to me at kenrogera@yahoo.com.
Thanks, Ken Rogers

I got my answer from a very helpful scanner expert from a posting on the newsgroup comp.periphs.scanners. The plastic piece went near the end of the bezel that holds the glass above the starting position for the scanning run. Once I knew the idea, locating where it went was easy because of small indentations in the bezel the shape and size of the plastic piece. Thanks.

When i scan my documents in the document feader i get a line on the scaned document


Look on the narrow glass under the feeder, a scratch or spot of white-out will make that streak. Also wipe the white bar above the glass and power down and back up so it can calibrate to the clean glass.

I accidently pulled out a piece of white strip with tow blue ends. Now my printer wont turn on....I took it apart but don't know where this white strip goes...


Sounds like the encoder strip. There's a hook on one side, itgoes through a slot in the printhead, near the top in the back, and a spring to hook it on the other side. Hard to put back without taking the covers off.

Lines appear when making a copy using document feeder tray


If the lines are vertical (in the direction the ADF feeds, 11in long for 8 1/2 by 11) You can try cleaning the glass the scanner uses when it's using the document feeder. Pull up the top left part of the printer where the documents feed, there's a little rib in the middle of the side to help you do this, then simply pull up the assembly underneath with all the rollers in it, you should see about an inch of glass underneath and a centimeter long strip of white plastic on the assembly (this serves as the white background when feeding slimmer papers) Clean them both. I'd recomend any glass cleaner, just don't spray it in there, spray it onto a cloth.
