Salve La stampante Photosmart HP D5160 dopo l'accensione inizia a produrre rumori come ingranaggi che si graffiano ripetutamente nell'area vicino al cassetto di sostituzione delle cartucce, alla fine dopo alcuni istanti la stampante smette di fare rumore ed ? pronta per la stampa, ma ultimamente, dopo sopra, sistematicamente non viene pi? stampato e il punto esclamativo rosso lampeggiante rimane. Le cartucce sono originali e hanno una capacit? superiore ai 3/4. Spero in tuo aiuto il prima possibile. Grazie. Roberta
